I just moved to the Manayunk neighborhood of Philadelphia and did not know of a trustworthy mechanic. My pick up truck started making a strange noise so I pulled into Vince's Service Station. I asked a mechanic, who appeared to be in charge, how much it would cost to simply get his opinion of what was wrong with my truck. He immediately nodded and walked outside, instructing me to turn on the engine. After listening for a moment he diagnosed the sound as coming from an exaust leak. Then he put the truck up on the lift and tried to find the leak (I also really liked that at this point he began explaining what he was doing while he did it.) He couldn't find the leak, and told me that this was because it was probably by the manifold or was the manifold itself, and that he would have to remove the heat shield to know for sure. He said that the worse case scenerio was that I had a cracked manifold, which would be a fairly expensive repair. I left the truck overnight and was called the next day at 11am. I was glad to hear that the problem had simply been the result of a bolt that had come loose on the manifold. They charged me $70, which I felt was very reasonable. The big thing for me was that the mechanic was able to diagnose the problem quickly, was communicative about all possible outcomes, and most importantly, that he didn't try to tell me that I needed a more costly repair. I appreciate it!
