Isai is very polite and knowledgeable, he confirmed my suspicions about the fuel pump in just a few minutes. He thoroughly inspected the whole vehicle to determine other potential issues. He engaged me with good and clear questions that showed me he knew his craft and was concerned to ensure that the issue was diagnosed properly.

Chris is great! He called to say he could come earlier than planned, which worked out nicely. Of course, the car magically fixed itself as soon as he laid eyes on it, but he did a pretty thorough inspection and discussed with me a lot of the possibilities for the original problem. If it rears its head again, I'll call Chris for sure.

Very good. Had my alternator changed out and had the same problems. Scott was the 3rd to come out and ended up finding a short wire it's nice that I got other things done though it was about time. Will definitely use him again!

Alex was amazing. He had to come out and correct someone else's mistake. The whole time he never treated the situation as if he did not want to be there which I absolutely loved because most people hate having to make up for and apologize on someone else's behalf.

Car is not starting Inspection Service

A car that fails to start is a rare occurrence in this age of greatly improved efficiency and reliability. But it still happens occasionally, and the advanced electronic technologies that have made cars better have also made the job of roadside diagnosis difficult, if not impossible, for even reasonably handy owners. One of our expert mobile mechanics can provide an expeditious diagnosis and provide a quote for any necessary repairs.

Common reasons for this to happen:

If the engine cranks, but the car doesn't start:

  • Bad fuel pump: A faulty fuel pump won't deliver fuel to the engine, even if you've just filled up.

  • Bad spark plugs: Without hot sparks to ignite the fuel charge in each cylinder, there is no combustion and no expansion of the burning mixture. Thus, the engine will not start.

  • Bad timing belt: If the timing belt stretches or breaks, the engine will not run. Moreover, continuing to crank the engine may bring the valves into contact with the piston, causing serious engine damage.

  • Bad ignition coil: Without a functional coil to step up the voltage, there can be no spark. No spark means no start.

  • Faulty cam or crank sensor: If the sensors are faulty they will either provide no information to the ignition system, or will provide incorrect data. Either way, the engine will not fire.

If nothing happens after you turn the key:

  • Bad battery or terminals: Batteries have a finite lifespan, and terminals can loosen or corrode.

  • Bad starter: This should be obvious from the response to the key. If nothing happens at all when you turn the key, the starter may have reached the end of its life.

  • Ignition problem: This could be due to faulty contacts in the ignition switch, or in the wiring.

If there is a grinding noise when you turn the key:

  • Starter is bad: Do not persist in cranking the engine.

What to expect:

A top-rated mobile mechanic will come to your home or office to determine the source and cause of your car’s failure to start, and will then provide a detailed inspection report that includes the scope and cost of the necessary repairs.

How it's done:

The mechanic will check the ignition system, fuel system, and charging system, and then look for any mechanical damage. The mechanic may also try an alternative fuel source, like a quick shot of brake or carburetor cleaner into the throttle body, or a quick shot of liquid fuel via a vacuum line. If the car starts momentarily and then dies, that indicates that you have a fuel delivery issue.

How important is this service?

It goes without saying that a non-starting car is an important issue to address. Do not ignore or abandon the car if it’s not starting; this is an issue that should be dealt with promptly. Book a mechanic to perform a thorough inspection as soon as possible.
