The "stop" on my electric window sheared off. Earl "fixed" the problem...three times -- but only charged me for the first fix. I came back twice without an appointment when the window came off the track again, and he "squeezed" me in each time, in spite of the fact that his is a very busy shop. He also is a great referral source to other shops (tires, car audio and upholstery). He's also over 60, so he knows a thing or two about carburetors. He specializes in electrical work.

At ten after 5:00 on a Friday afternoon, I stopped and asked Earl, the owner about a overheating problem I had experienced earlier. It was a very hot day here and at one point after the car had been shut off, the radiator over- flow blew out quite a bit of fluid. Earl checked it out thoroughly after I had checked the hoses and discussed the problem with some others. We were all perplexed but I assumed it needed a complete flush. Its a 94 Dodge Intrepid. He had me start the car then well explained the situation with the automatic electic fans, basically assured me it could just be an anomoly and told me to keep an eye on the temp guage for any further problems. No charge; no phoney recommendations; no need to bring it in for a thorough exam and no problems since. I have to salute this kind of mechanic who takes that kind of time to check things out, explain them then not even make a charge. He's got my business. Jerry Kolasinski
