Jeff was absolutely friendly, great guy. He did his best to figure out what was wrong with the Volvo. He determined that the fan was not coming on when it was suppose to. Jeff gave us a thorough explanation what he thought was going on and suggested that we take the Volvo to the Volvo dealer ship. If needed we will definitely call and ask for Jeff to come out and service our other vehicle. Thank you! Michelle

Casey

A true test for mechanics are having extensive knowledge about fixing your own car. Casey was straightforward about how much time it would take to fix my pcv valve on my Volvo and I completely agree with him since I have replaced several Volvo pcv valves and it takes me about an hoiur longer than him. No tricks/gimmicks.

All about Water Pump Replacement

The water pump, a container made of aluminum or iron, is part of the cooling system. It contains an impeller (looks like a fan) that circulates water and coolant throughout the cooling system, keeping the engine from overheating. It is located in the engine compartment. For the water pump to work, it needs to turn. This is accomplished either by the drive belt or timing belt/chain. If the water pump is not working, the coolant will not circulate through the cooling system causing the engine to overheat and get severe damages.
