  • Mobile Mechanics

    I've been really stupid. I never thought of mobile mechanics. This has been a hell of a month. My bus broke down 3 times. Once a week, I've had to have it towed in at the cost of 150-200 a tow. Then 100 an hour at the mechanics for labor, not including parts.And a day or two down time.
    Yesterday, I go out to leave and the (&&^%&($ thing wont start. This time the ignition switch. I got in the phone book to see if I could find someone cheaper to tow it to the mechanics, and noticed an ad for mobile mechanics. I called him, he was there in 30 minutes w/ the part. Took him 10 minutes to fix and it was 65 bucks part and all. Yay for mobile mechanics!!!

    What a great idea

    Mobile is the best, hee hee. I never thought of that either, but wow what a great concept. Thanks for the info for all.
    Money will buy you a pretty good dog but it won't buy the wag of it's tail.

        When I have problems I just call Doug. He is a great mobile mechanic. My %$#%%^ van wouldn't start this morning. My husband had already gone out when I tried to start it. So I called Doug. He was working nearby and said he would come between dogs. So before he came my DH came home. I told him the van wouldn't start and he said he would look at it. I went out and turned the key and of course it started right up. About that time Doug pulled in. At least the van seems to be fine now. I will have to give it a try tomorrow morning.

          next time slam the door (not on the husband), and try it again. Sometimes moving the shift lever does the trick.

            You were so close! It's a 1989 ford econline 350 bus, with a tilt steering wheel, hell I didn't even know it tilted. It was tilted up so the steering wheel was almost flat, it was binding up the bar thingy in there. Jiggling worked, it started right up. I asked the mechanic what he did, he said nothing. Just tilted the steering wheels so it wasnt binding up, but I still had him put a new one in. It had stress fractures in it. Ok so next time I break down, come to the board first, then call the mobile mechanic..
