Someone cancelled an appointment with Ruben due to rain, so he used that time to check out my car a day early. He was able to diagnose my car, letting me know where the problem was and what options I had to get it fixed. Because I am learning to work on cars myself, Ruben allowed me to watch what he was doing and even gave me explanations as he went along. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. I'll definitely choose Ruben for any future appointments I may have.
Great service. Knowledgeable and helpful.

Joshua was quick and let us know what he was doing as he did it. We have used him before and will continue to use him as our mechanic in the future. You are lucky to have him.

Originally had a 12:30 appointment scheduled, but called around 11:15 to day he was running late which was greatly appreciated. He was able to rule a lot of major things out which is a relief, and was able to recommend some quick do it yourself things I can do in order to save some money. At no time did I feel pressured to get a service I didn't need, and he was able to break things down so even I could under stand them!

Garrett was awesome. He found the starter kill issue that stumped me after I had changed a turn signal relay on a used Jeep that I recently purchased. The Jeep would not start and I could not figure out why. Garret was diligent in troubleshooting this as an electrical issue and eventually found the hidden starter kill, which I was unaware of. Garrett was very knowledgeable and shared about typical problems that could be the cause based on my explanation and work, but in the end relied on what he actually saw from testing and troubleshooting. I would definitely have him do work for me again.

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.
