I blew one of those gaskets that cost 75 cents and require the entire engine to be pulled apart to replace it. They fixed it. They have managed to keep our twelve and thirteen year old Volvos on the road.

I have been using JD for about 6 years. They are the reason my now 14 year old car is still running beautifully. Last year, I noticed a clunk when I turned right. John discovered that two of three engine mounts had failed! It turned out that they had sheared off the engine. No problem. John and his team drilled out the broken mounts and replaced them. And, he did it all in 1 day for a reasonable fee! This year I had what I thought was a leak in the roof. I also mentioned that the check engine light and that the remote release buttons for my fuel door and trunk were not working. John performed a smoke test, found the leak, and corrected it. He then fixed the check engine light (O2 sensors, $200) and remote switches and also decarbonized the engine and charged a very reasonable fee ($1000, if it was much more it might have meant the end of my beloved Eos). I can't give a positive enough recommendation of John and his team at JD. John is honest, extraordinarily capable, and fair. You will be happy you took your car there!
