This is exactly what I like ot hear... He sounds like the type of person who likes to do it right the first time around... If so he is a rare mechanic...
I have said this so mant times... I am no mechanic, But I have been shocked at dealerships by what their mechanics don't know.... Sometimes its downright freaky..
I explained to one of the local dealerships customers... I asked him if he had a 3100 or a 2.3 Quad 4... He said 2.3 quad 4... His daughter had run the car around with a leak in the radiator.... He told me what it was doing, I told him the head gasket was gone... Cast iron block and alluminum head... Not good when you run them hot... The service writer( A$$hole) told me I had no idea what I was talking about... I laughed, the customer laughed, we both sat and talked about it for a while... I saw the guy later ans he told me I was dead on the money... He didn't get his car repaired there... Amazingly enough he took the car to my friend, I had no idea they knew eachother...LMAO... Quad 4'* can be an experience..
Whats my point here...
I like hearing that there are some good mechanics around
Good Luck, and let us know how it all goes..
