I have had Phil work on almost all of the several cars I've had over the last thiry years and he is consistantly accurate in his diagnosis and estimates of time required and price. His is a one man operation and he's alawys busy but certainly worth the wait.

Working on my 17 year old daughter's car and took the time to explain just how the engine works, what was broken and how it impacted the running of the engine. Car in the next stall had an ABS brake that would pulse on a random basis which had been to the dealer several times over six months with many components replaced to no avail. Phil pondered a bit over the wiring diagrams for the ABS and quickly located a sensor wire that had been misrouted next to some electronic ignition wires. Moved it to the bundle it was placed in when it came from the factory and the problem went away. Doesn't take much inductance to trick some sensors.

Phil has worked on and succesfully fixed many of my cars. He is honest, forthright and very accomodating, gives excellent service, on time and at reasonable cost...and the darned thing works when you get it back!
