Gene's a knowledgeable, honest mechanic who helped me get my nearly decade old Subaru back into tip top shape in no time. I'm a bit of a car tinkerer myself, so it was nice to be able to walk around the shop and show Gene the specific issues I was having instead of being forced to wait in the nicely equipped waiting room.
A honest, knowledgeable mechanic is so hard to find these days, I'm glad Gene was referred to me by a fellow enthuisiast
Happy Mustang – I had a Mustang that was missfiring. Went to a couple of shops to see if they can fix it.
One shop said they can't help me because the "check engine" light is not on. Another shop
replaced a few thing but still didn't help. I read positive reviews about Gene's Auto Repair,
so I decided to give them a try. They fixed it. Gene said that using some kind of mode 6 he was
able to see which cylinder missfired and replacing ignition coil solved the problem.I dont think
my Mustang ever ran as good as it does now. I am very happy with Gene's.
Great shop – Got a 97 Nissan Quest. Engine developed a rattle.Took it to a couple of shops for diagnostics. Was told I need a new engine.
Friend told me to give Gene a try. Turns out it was a worn A/C belt tensioner. $147.00 later my minivan runs great and quiet.
Good honest mechanic, excellent troubleshooting – I've been going to Gene for a number of years, and have taken all sorts of cars to him for routine maintenance and the occasional oddball job of an engine swap or transmission replacement. I owned a Lotus Esprit years ago, and Gene had no trouble working on it and identifying where most of the parts came from. (Old Lotus owners will understand what I'm talking about). He's been able to take care of my tire, muffler, and alignment needs as well, and for things he's not equipped to handle (aluminum welding, radiator repair), he's got good knowledge of other available sources. Turnaround time is always prompt. As a side note I was there for a routine oil change one day, and I witnessed an old Mercury Cougar that had been towed in. Apparently the elderly woman who had owned it was quoted over three thousand dollars in engine work. Gene popped the hood and did some fiddling around to verify the claims. It turned out that it was just a burned out relay. Good thing she had gone to Gene instead of shelling out all that cash at the dealership. I've found that dealerships seem to have a 'replace it instead of troubleshooting' mentality, even if the answer is something as simple as a relay. In this case, it really worked out for the best. Highly recommended.
Great beginning, poor results. – After going to his shop due to mechanical problems, i found that my car got in worse conditions. the first time he forgot to reconnect my oil temp gauge, and the second it seemed as my car got worse. I went to get my fuel pump replaced and after i had picked it up, it got harder for me to start the car in the first place, than started to stall all by it self. And no, i don't drive a manual transmission so it wasn't my fault. I don't know whether it's the fact that he lack's knowledge in the Jeep areas but i will not go back to him anymore.
