I have used Mobile Mechanics with success in the past few months. I used Dean (816) 389 7258 on my Ford F150 1989. Starter motor. He knows this truck, and popped it right in there! He was out here VERY quickly. It was a cheap price, $50 to put it in, and reasonable on the starter. Dean is out in Blue Springs..couldn’t get a hold of him Saturday. I am gonna use another guy, Chris, tomorrow..and will put him in here if it is success. You find these guys on Craigs List.
They will quote you a price, very quickly. Some of them, such as Chris, will even get you used parts at the Pick N Pull (U Wrench It) or other salvage yard.
Getting your car into a shop is a pain in the ass. Sometimes they are booked two weeks straight, and they will NOT come to YOU. Boy my hat is OFF to these dudes- they work their tails off. I hope this deal will go through.. I need a master cylinder, and a Blower motor on the Ford F150. I WAS looking through Craig’s list for a car..but most of what I looked at had worse problems than the old Truck has.
Besides.. my shoulder is killing me.. it is still weak..and I have health problems big time.
OFTEN.. it is CHEAPER .. to KEEP HER…cheaper to keep your old car. That spendthrift urge is always upon us.
