I started my business "Mechanic on Wheels" 15 years ago in Philadelphia. I am blessed to be living in the beautiful bay area now. I have been working on cars for more than 25 years. I work on all makes and models and I will be happy to come to you to help with any car problems you might have. Thank you for looking at my profile!
Whitney took the time to perform thorough diagnostics and provided recommendations. He then implemented the big work of replacing the timing belt and more to our full satisfaction.
Whitney was professional and timely. He fixed the issue, explained what he was doing and took care of everything fast. I was leaving town early the next morning and really appreciated being able to get my car into the garage and know that it would be in working order when I got back.
whitney is great, he could pin point the exact location of trouble,and get it done.he is punctual and very respectful,i wish i had known him all these years,i could have saved tons of money.
I appreciate the time attention Whitney gave my car, and I would certainly use him again for servicing my Vehicles. He has a passion for the work that he does. Thanks Whitney
Very professional. Identify the problem of my car very well. Changed the parts, I feels like driving a new car now. Very good communication. He understand what I need very well. Price is very reasonable. He also checked battery, engine oil, tire air pressure. Give me further recommdation. Overall, I am very happy his service. I am highly recommend him. Mary J.
Whitney is a great mechanic. I gotten the diagnostic code from different service. I decided to change out the oxygen sensor as a possible problem. Whitney researched the code and showed me what his reference suggested, which was 3 possible issues. He then he talked me through possible options. However, he let me decide on the solution path that I wanted to take. He was reasonable with his suggestions and seemed genuine in only trying to get me the right solutions to appropriately service my car. I would see him again to follow up on any future issues, and highly recommend him to others.
Whitney is a top class mechanic. He broke down every detail that I needed and made it all very easy to understand. He felt genuine when recommending potential next steps for my vehicle, and he walked me through all of his work so that I felt comfortable and that he could double check everything. I really appreciated how professional, yet personable Whitney is. I would recommend him to anybody.

Whitney has been taking care my 2 cars since 2 or 3 years now. He is a great mechanic and a great guy! I highly recommend his service.
We hired Whitney for a pre-purchase inspection for a pre-owned Honda CR-V. Whitney came on time and was very thorough. He identified some issues that the dealer from whom we are purchasing, had missed in their 125 point inspection. He was very methodical and tested all important points of failure in the car. The overall process took about an hour and we got a very professional inspection report at the end. We were very satisfied with the job done here, and can now confidently make the purchase decision. Thank you for an excellent job.
Whitney came in early not sure how early since I had just woken up. Anywho he came for what I initially was supposed to be a power steer pump replacement, since that's what I thought was the problem. Whitney recommended that he should inspect the car first to make sure that was the actual problem. Immediately I was outstanded by how honest that action was. As it turns out my racket and pinion system was faulty and my power steering pressure hose was the problem as well. I was grateful that he took the time to not only help me but also teach me a bit about my car. In the end I was charged for an inspection since he did not have the parts to fix my car. Still I was thoroughly satisfied and I didn't expect such a wonderful experience.
Personable and friendly individual. I enjoyed talking to Whitney and learning more about my car. I hope to have him as my mechanic in the future again. Thank you for your help Whitney!
Whitney was great. I was getting a new valve cover gasket, and he realized that the shop where I recently had an oil change tightened the oil can too much so that it had been slightly leaking. I appreciated Whitney's explanation and that he fixed the issue as well. He was friendly, professional and very helpful - definitely recommend him!
I needed an oil and filer change. Whitney was amazing. He came directly to my office after texting me that he was on his way and another once he arrived....I handed him the car keys...went back to work...then got another text when he was done. So easy, so fast and so well done! I highly recommend Whitney and YourMechanic.com. I like that you can also request a mechanic you feel comfortable with and trust. I need other work done to my car and I will ask for Whitney.
He came around 30 earlier than usual but can't complain about that. The appointment was to replace one oxygen sensor but after it was replaced the check engine light was still on. Apparently the other half of the sensor pair at the front (the sensor I known was at front) and since one sensor affects the other... well common sense(?) dictates when one is having problems the other would too. Mr.Otiz explained nicely and I think I was half expecting something to pop up because I wasn't that surprised or upset. I paid more than I planned since two sensors instead of one needed to be replaced but reality is what it is. If I was charged for the sensor readings that would have ticked me off (some mechanics do that) but no such thing has happened and that was good.

whitney was excellent. nice guy, professional, helped out with the whole financial process. definitely would suggest to colleagues and friends
Whitney came to change my alternator per my request, however upon inspection he determined that it was not necessary to do so. The price i paid ended up being about $150 LESS than i was originally quoted. I am very pleased with the fact that even though he was going to be making less money for his visit he was honest and told me it wasn't necessary instead of just changing the alternator anyway as i know most mechanics would have. I am very pleased with yourmechanic.com and can honestly say that i don't see my self taking my car to a mechanic in a shop ever again. Thanx
Whitney was amazing and honest guy. Hard to find these type of mechanics now-a-days. He explained brake related things, which is well appreciated. He did not push to change rear wheel brake pad as they still had pad that can work safely till next oil change.
He sticks to the job and is very honest in his profession. I have asked him to check my struts but he found that something else which is less expensive than the struts are causing the problem. I have decided to keep hiring for fixing my car.
Whitney was very professional during the service. He took time to answer all the questions I had and provided very good recommendations about car maintenance. He performed the service well. Overall, it was a great service experience and I highly recommend Whitney for all the service needs.
awesome service. Issue found and fixed quickly, recommended a couple services that made sense and ended up being very reasonably priced for everything (additional services were completed on a followup visit)
I am extremely pleased with this service and will request Whitney next time I need service! I have already recommended him to a friend!!
Mr Whitney was very friendly and he gave me lot of information on how I should maintain my car. He advised m
Whitney arrived about half an hour earlier than my scheduled time. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, personable, and patiently took time to explain things as well as educate me, as I'm a complete noob regarding automobiles. He's quite trustworthy, and I would not hesitate to contact him again in the event that I needed repairs on my car.
He went above and beyond to address the issues that were going on in the car. He was very easy to talk to, and made me feel confident that the job was being done properly! The best mechanic I've had--I've already booked an appointment with him later this month based on the quote he provided.
Whitney was excellent and very meticulous at his job. My Elantra runs much smoother and nicer after the Timing belt change. Very happy with the work done !!!
I think that Whitney is a great mechanic. He went beyond his job to find out what was wrong with my vehicle. Most mechanics just do as much as they are paid for. He really did a great job. I really appreciate it.
I like his attitude. He knows what he is doing, and he does it. He gets right to the problem. I have used him several times now and he is always nice, accommodating, and friendly.
Whitney was polite, friendly, and very approachable. He was a little late (about ten minutes), but I appreciated him calling ahead of time to let me know.
Right on time, quickly diagnosed the problem and found the issue. Explained what needed to be fixed and offered to order the part and fix it. Top notch guy.
Whitney did an outstanding job. He explained each and every procedure and also provided extra advise. He is very knowledgeable and has friendly attitude. I will happily recommend his service to my friends and YourMechanic customers.

Car wouldn't start this morning, on a Sunday. I knew towing would be expensive, so I set up an appointment with YourMechanic online and as luck would have it, got an appointment same day, but not until 7pm. At 5pm, my mechanic David called and asked if it would be ok to come early - of course!
He shows up when he said, was extremely polite, ran the diagnostic and said it was battery. He then charged it enough to get me one more start so I can get it replaced in the morning. In addition, he told me about what it should cost so I don't overpay at the shop.
Between the $70 diagnostic, and what I'll pay for battery and installation, it'll still be cheaper than having it jumped by the shop and/or towed.
