I've been an automotive technician for 13 years and am an ASE certified master technician. I graduated from the Ford program and worked at a Ford dealership as well as an independent shop.

As usual Pete went through every procedure on my SUV to find and determine what I did to it. through numerous checks and balances from ignition to compression he concluded that my cylinder had no compression and with other findings I can eventually put her to rest. it still runs and I can still take it short distances to work until I get rid of it. she is an old girl with lots of miles anyway so I am not shocked. now back to Pete. he is very knowledgeable about cars especially fords. he has extensive experience in the automotive field with all its new technology and computers etc. he has worked on my car before and I cant think of another to trust with my cars. you looking for a top notch mechanic and a all around nice guy he is your man. if only other industries were as honest and trustworthy and had people like Pete working for them it would be a better place. when the likes of Pete and anyone like him are gone from your mechanic so aim I. trust, knowledge, experience, values then prices and convenience is what its about. remember this. chuck p

Love Pete! He was on time, quick, and friendly. He fixed the problem in 5 minutes and gave me a free inspection since I just purchased the car. I will definitely ask for Pete!

Tried this service for the first time. My problem - sometimes my auto's engine would race, the tachometer would be very high but my car would start slowing down, as if it had lost power, but after a short time the normal power and speed would be working right again. Very scary when you are driving on the highway at 70 mph. then this happens, and you seem to be coasting down to 30 mph. before your car starts to engage properly again. Pete Hambly to the rescue. I explained to Pete how my car was acting, and he surmised what the problem was very quickly before he even hooked up the code reader to my auto. After reading the code and doing a few tests with his instruments to verify his prognosis, he solved the problem. He looked at my part and found a faulty connector sensor. He temporally fixed the problem until the part I need is found. Pete was friendly, informative, professional, very knowledgeable, courteous, and proficient. He was clean cut, well mannered, and made you feel at ease. Pete gave me the impression he loved his work and it was more than just a job to be done. I am very happy I used "Your Mechanic" services and got Pete as my service technician. My cost was lower than if I had taken it somewhere else and more personable. Communicating directly with my technician instead of a clerk behind a desk, that writes up a work order for the mechanic to read, solved my problem faster and with more precision. I will definitely use Your Mechanics services in the future and definitely ask for Pete again. Thank You very much Pete for a pleasant stressless hour.

Pete was great. He was here early and did a quick job with the diagnosis. Look over the vehicle for possible recommdations of future needs. Overall very satisfied with his service.

on June 21

EZ peasy lemon squeezy. Again, no complaints here. Met with Pete previous week for inspection. Order part and he was in and out under 30 min. Three Cheers for Pete.

on June 11

Had Pete come down to investigate why I was getting exhaust smells through my vents. We found out that my exhaust manifold was cracked. He was very knowledgeable on why cracks happen and offered me an alternative method to wield the crack and save ~$900. He also spotted a busted trans mount (which might explain the vibrations).

My mechanic, Pete Hambly, was punctual, professional, and expedient in replacing my timing belt and water pump. I would absolutely work with and recommend Pete in the future. Plus the quote was 35% less than at the dealership. Using YourMechanic was a great experience all around.

After another mechanic broke one of our spark plugs and couldn't finish the job, Pete came in and did it with no problem. We initially requested him due to his last job on our car and we gained trust, but we settled for another mechanic since Pete wasn't available at that time. We will definitely wait next time if we have to and have it done right the first time! We have nothing but respect and appreciation for him and his work! We will not have another job done by anyone else besides him while we are here! My husband & I truly recommend him to anyone!

First time user! Heard squeaking noises and rubbing metal when pressing on my brakes. I took my car to a couple of auto repair shops and of course they gave me over the head prices to get new brake pads and rear rotors! Found YourMechanic online and had Pete come out to inspect my brakes. BEST AND FASTEST AUTO REPAIR SERVICE I'VE EVER HAD. He told me exactly what was wrong, gave me recommendations and came the next day 2 hours early to start the job. It was a 3 hour job and he finished in 1.5 hours. Also included an oil change, tire rotation and replaced one of my brake lights. Total amount came up 50% less than we got from other shops. Definitely recommend using YourMechanic! This will be my go to service when I need repairs! Request Pete as your mechanic! THANK YOU!

on May 09

Pete called ahead of time letting us know upfront that there might be more damage and that he couldn't guarantee that this would fix my problem but I opted to try anyways. He showed up right on time and finished the job an hour early. And he did a great job. My car is by no means in perfect condition (my fault, not his) but at least he got it up and running for me and that's all I can ask for at the moment. I would definitely use YourMechanic and Pete again.

on March 08

Pete is a professional mechanic and knows how to improvise to get the job done. I highly recommend him and would seek his help with any future repairs.

on March 06

There are three major things I look for in a mechanic: efficiency, honesty, and inclusion. For my No Start Inspection, Pete used the available clues to jump straight into the likely source of the problem. Although he did take many factors into consideration, he didn't waste any time chasing parts that were already previously inspected or even unrelated. As a young woman, I also look for and appreciate mechanics that include me in the process. Pete took me seriously and took the time to explain his process on my own level of understanding. My experience with Pete was not just a repair service, but also a learning opportunity. Even though I trusted his opinion, he still showed me the faulty part and explained exactly why this part was the source of the problem. Rather than feeling frustrated or discouraged by the needed repair, Pete has given me the confidence and satisfaction that my car will be able to be put back in great condition.
