One of the most honest and upfront mechanics I have encountered. He could have done unneccessary work and charged me, but told me what was wrong and what did not need to be worked on.

Great Service!

Took my truck to this shop while i was out of state had the work done then supposely the receipt was in my glove box. he told me it was the piston rings and that he replaced them. we been going over there 3 or 4 times to get the receipt till this day i dont have it i get an excuse saying its at his house or the irs has it that hes waiting to get it back. the more i talk to him the more excuses i get. anyway i asked him a few months later what he had done and he said all he had done is replace that one head which i thought it was weird for 1800 bucks im thinking i had new pistons new injectors and new oil. but a few months later i found out he said he only replaced the head. well i was haveing the same issue had a mechanic look at it no sign of a new head just gaskets. while re doing the gaskets he found bolts that were loose. looks like the guy at ask jim auto repair only did the head gasket set. i told him to change the oil too he did not!!!!!!! i drove down to ca with oil that was in my engine when the car was sitting for 1/2 a yr. till this day i have not seen a receipt. everytime we went in he has an excuse for everything. dont not go to this shop the worst 1800 bucks i spent for something he didnt even do.

Chris, When you bring me a transmission that is already slipping and ask me to do filter and fluid flush. I told you it may help or make it worse. You cannot bend an exhaust system when replacing the transmission in a chey blazer because you have to remove it to get the transmission out and back in. Further more the parts you supplied were in the back of your blazer when it left and i did not charge for the work of putting in the distributor.
You called the police and said i had threatened with a crow bar, which did not happen, and were told not to come back to my place of business by the police.

Rather not say,
Your ford explorer I put a used head on not a new head. A head gasket job on a ford explorer cost 1500.00 plus the used head which is 100.00, machine shop fees of 70.00, an oil change 30.00, add antifreeze to your engine and tax. This job should have been more than i charged you but because you worked for autozone i gave you a break. Ford Explorers are known for this issue.
In the amount of time i had your vehicle, which in the end i towed from your moms house and took back, I got audited. Everyone who has a business knows that they take all recipts of your incoming moneys. So by the time i got the recipts back, insted of you providing an adress, I called your mom and she could not make it to the shop during business hours. Sorry but i tried.

One of the most honest and upfront mechanics I have encountered. I am a woman and it is hard to find a good mechanic. He could have done unneccessary work and charged me, but he fixed the parts I had and did not charge me. I will be referring all my friends and getting all my oil changes and work done there!

Great Service!
