Ben was Awesome! He came out to my job and replaced all my brakes and figured out why my air was not working! Very professional!
Very knowledgeable. Too me for a test drive after timing belt was replaced. A small coolant leak was detected but Ben went and bought the sealant and fixed it even though he was late for his next job. Also gave me some pointers and fixed my brake noises in 2 minutes. I will recommend this fine gentleman any day, every day.
Arrived early ran inspection, Ben found that the code was the same code that popped up on he visit Monday (07/10). He cleaned to throttle body, etc. Hope this fixes the issue. Ben is kind, social, and fair. He will not add work just to make a buck. Thanks Ben!
They just sent an email saying the mechanic is on his way. It is only 8:12 am! He is off to a good start. He is supposed to arrive between 9:00-9:30 am. He arrived well before that time! It was not 9:00 am yet! He did a diagnostic and he checked all the work I did. He said I did great work with everything I did. He said the car is very good shape. He said this car is indeed a runner! He checked everything. He checked all the fuses and relays too. He did a complete diagnostic too. He checked fuel pressure, oil pressure, and more. He found out what it was. It had nothing to do with oil pressure or anything. The fuel pump is going out. When he came the car started right up. He said they never go totally out. He said that is why it started when it did. He connected tools I do not have to the Ninety Eight. It is not getting any fuel pressure, and this is why it shut off all the times it did. He fixed one of the spark plug wires too. It was burnt. He jacked the Ninety Eight up and got underneath and checked the wires, the oil pressure sensor/switch and oil level sender for everything and the connections and made sure they have power and were installed correctly. He said the engine uses oil pressure along with the fuel pressure to start. The fuel pressure is non existent and that is why it would not start. After all of that, he looked at the Oldsmobile Toronado, my other car . He got the air conditioner to work again. He said the compressor bolt was loose and he tightened it up. He used this huge screw driver device and bent it back in place. He said the shims were loose and he bent them back. It cools just fine now. We turned it on and off several times testing it. He checked the pressure and it was filled with refrigerant. He checked the relays and the fan too. It was all fine. He said it is clear you take care of both of your cars. He said one thing I will not do is guess and I like to know what is indeed wrong. He said your cars are in good shape. He said you do not need valve cover gaskets. There is no leak. I booked him to return to install the fuel pump I need. I look forward to seeing him again soon in a few weeks. Today only cost me 70.00. That's it.
Car was running rough and check engine light came on. Ben came out, did an inspection and identified that the transmission needed serviced (filter, fluid, and new seal). We scheduled Ben to conplete work next day. Ben came out and took care of us. Great job! Thanks!
Ben is awesome, very friendly and does the job! He also came early which was a plus. I recommend him to anyone and will request to use him again in the future!
Very professional!!! Would recommend him again in a heart beat! He diagnosed the problem and explained without making things seem bigger than what they were. Honest! Which is important in this line of work! Hands down the best mechanic I've ever experienced
Ben was very professional and prompt. He quickly solved the issue with my car and provided reasonable solutions to dealing with the problem. Very happy with service and will definitely recommend to family and friends.
Ben came out today to change my oil and check my ac. He did both and the experience was awesome. He even fixed a minor issue with my car door. I would absolutely recommend Ben to anyone searching for a reliable, honest mechanic.
He was so great! I was going to go and get a battery after he left. The guy that came before him suggested I go and get a new battery. And he told me that I didn't need one and that I didn't need my breaks replaced like I was told as well... he was so nice and sweet! He was so knowledgeable about everything! He's been doing this for a very long time and it shows!
Ben showed up a bit early which was great. He provided the expected service quickly and professionally. He explained to me the work he did and cleaned up the area he had worked in. I could not ask for better service. He was great!
Ben was awesome! I scheduled the appointment at 11' o'clock at my job. Ben came on time despite the fact that the GPS system directed him pass the location. He still managed to be on time with a smile on his face. He also informed me about other things on my vehicle that was helpful. I would recommend Ben any day.... If there was more trustworthy mechanics' like him.....ummm this world would be great.
He is very professional and had a great personality. I feel comfortable to ask questions in regards to my vehicle without worrying to be overcharged.
Very efficient ! Surprisingly pleased. I wasn't too sure about going through this website but I am so glad that I did. As long as I have a car Ben has a customer!
For those who subscribe to the TL;DR mentality- hire Ben- you won't regret it. For those who want the details, read on. My car wouldn't start at the country club, and after thinking through my options, I decided to give Ben my business for the first time. Let's start by saying that the club was NOWHERE near where he drives out from. Nonetheless, he showed up early, and with a happy, steady demeanor. He is an ASE Master mechanic, and he clearly has years of experience to back up the certification. Ben takes a pragmatic approach to diagnosing the issues with the vehicle. He doesn't believe in fixing it if it's not broken. That said, he will check every last link in the chain related to the problem to make sure nothing else presents an issue in addition to the original problem you were facing. In my case, he checked every last component from the fuel system and the feeding components, checked the relevant electrical components, made sure about the small things like terminal connections being solid and uncorroded, fuel was being atomized and cleanly delivered to the proper places, voltage drops were what they should be, and then...the car started. Seeing no further reason to perform more diagnostic, preventative, or actual work on the starting system components, I thanked Ben after he additionally generously rendered his opinion on some oil leaks I had suspected separate from what I called him for, and we went our separate ways. A few hours pass by at the club, and I am finally ready to leave. My car decided not to start again! Ben came right back within an hour! The inescapable conclusion was that the starter had tricked us both earlier, and so he went on an immediate diagnostic dive on that part. He skillfully and carefully removed the necessary parts to access the starter behind the intake in a matter of 10 minutes. He fed a direct current into the starter, and when the engine didn't turn over, it was confirmation of a need for a replacement. He drove me to the parts store nearby on my request, I bought a starter, and he installed it- everything from diagnosis to finish in under an hour. Let's just say I am beyond satisfied. From a price perspective it was cheaper by a country mile than any independent or dealership shop. From a professional perspective his line of logic and the work that he did during both sessions was spot-on and sensical. Personally, he's just a great guy. I certainly tipped him, and I will utilize his expertise again in the future.
Ben came to my home, opened the hood and within 20 seconds knew exactly what my problem was. He called before he arrived and after the work was complete. HE KNOWS HIS STUFF. I will recommend him every chance I get!
This man is a wealth of experience and knowledge in the automotive industry. Ben was able to accommodate me within an hour of rescheduling from another mechanic to come work on my vehicle within the hour. He was very quick and diligent with the task at hand while also providing knowledge. He had no problem and got me back rolling! Thanks Ben for your excellent service! I give him my highest recommendation for any work you need on your vehicle and with using YourMechanic.
Ben was very helpful and prompt, i had some issues with cs department but they made it right overall good experience
Ben was prompt, friendly and completed the job in half the estimated time. A/c is working again to get me through the Texas summer.
Ben was kick ass! Highly experienced, direct, quick, and money saving! We went the extra mile (pun intended) and adjusted my serpentine belt to make it stop squealing. Thank you, Ben!
Ben has performed several services on my vehicle. He is always professional, knowledgeable & friendly.
This is my second time scheduling an appointment with Ben! He is extremely professional and polite. I'm most impressed by his knowledge of vehicles and it shows through his confidence. I do not imagine myself using anyone but Ben for all of my future car needs.
Ben was great. Although he was under quoted for the job at hand he did not complain or try to charge me more money. He got the job done in a reasonable amount of time. Added bonus his knowledge of cars is the only thing better than his collection of cars.
Had a few experiences with this mechanic, each one has been awesome, issue always got handled in a timely manner.
Ben did an excellent job. Well mannered, professional, likes what he's doing and knew how to do it with a really good attitude. Ben is one of Americas finest trained personnel. I thank him for his service in the Military. Ben showed he had all the tools and knowledge to perform the job. My car ran perfect when he was done with it.
Ben was very prompt and fixed our issue with no problems at all. He was very professional and took the time to explain everything to us. We will be using Ben and yourmechanic for our future automotive needs
My only complaint is the part used (remanufactured). I prefer not to used remanufactured parts on my car. I am planning on replacing the fuel pump and if I have the part, can I use your services for the labor in replacing the part??
I had my spark plugs changed by ben today and he was very very nice, cordial and knowledgeable. I would have him work on my vehicle again in the furure.
Ben was absolutely professional, punctual, and overall just a pleasant person. He got my repair done in less time than originally expected and saved me about $400 compared to what I was quoted elsewhere. Overall, a phenomenal experience.
