Steven made some adjustments to carburetor which enabled truck to pass test well within range. Robert worked on my other truck, again brake related, and was able to locate a hard to find Hydra-Boost 12v motor. Very pleased with all work performed , highly recommend this company.

5My vintage Apollo motorhome needed some quality attention after a 12 year slumber. Robert is one of the few that still knows carburetor engines. It s been a slow process getting the rig back in order but get results every time Robert shows up. He s been making progress on my 30 foot rig at least 5 times now.

Robert sent his brother Rick out who was and is a true professional. In this day and age, I don't trust many service people. We've all seen the dateline shows or been victims. My problem was simple and Rick never tried to lead me down any other paths. Rick, thank you also for taking the time to check all the fluids and the tire pressure for me as well as all the helpful tips to keep it running right. You guys are on my speed dial now.

5New to Orange County had no idea where to go or even begin. Also if I brought my truck to a shop I may not see it for a week while I move through the cue and I would have no means to get around. This service was perfect, came out to my truck while I was at work, assessed the parts needed and did the job same day. Also let me know of possible fixes for an unrelated issue. I will definitely be following up with them.

4I bought aftermarket EGR and oil cooler for my powerstroke and Robert got them installed. He did it for a fair price. I called him on a Monday and it was done in one day on that Thursday. It was not a small job. I was happy with the service and will call him again when I'm ready for some more mods.

5Hi Robert,

I called Performance Haus in Dana Point - talked to the owner, who immediately said he knows the source of the problem without having to look at it: coolant is getting into the oil. He asked if the head gasket had been removed, I said yes (by our friend who also replaced the timing chain). He said anytime you take the head gasket off, if it isn't sealed perfectly when it gets put back on, coolant will leak in. He has never seen this issue in a 2006 Jetta but he feels strongly this is ONLY possibility.

He suggested doing a pressure test. Then he recommended taking it back to the person who changed the head gasket to have him seal it properly. However, our friend was really in over his head and we'd rather have a professional mechanic help us out.

Is this something you think Rick can try to tackle?

I know you guys are really busy, so we can be flexible - this doesn't have to happen right away, but possibly in the next month? Let me know what you think or if I should try to have the local guy do it.

Thanks for all your help and advice with this madness! that gives me some peace of mind. You and Rick have been so easy to work with, we really appreciate it.

Mobile Mechanics Review From Ty in Woodland Hills

Hi Robert,
Thanks again for the great service! Very pleased…
As promised, here is a testimonial you can use, either all or in part.
Thanks again!

I called WeGo2U Mobile Mechanics to replace a radiator in a Honda civic. (I had the parts already…I was attempting to do the repair myself but found it to be a bit above my skill level). I called wego2u and a mechanic was able to come to my house the following day (on Mother’s Day weekend, no less!)

He replaced the radiator to perfection and charged less for labor than my usual shop was going to charge, all without needing to tow the vehicle, or hassle with rides to the shop, or waiting while it was fixed. The mechanic was there at EXACTLY the time he promised (along with a heads-up call to say he was on his way).

I’m very happy with this service and I’m not sure I will ever take my car to a ‘regular’ shop again. I highly recommend giving it a try. Mobile mechanic service is a great idea, and these guys are honest and skilled mechanics. Thanks to wego2u…I will DEFINITELY be using their service again.

Mobile Mechanic Orange County fixes Powerstroke Diesel

Ford Powerstroke Mobile Mechanic Orange County Diesel Repair

Mobile Mechanic Diesel Truck Repair Orange Count

The part in the picture below is the HPOP oil rail that sits on top of the injectors, which are computer controlled by a separate module called a FICM (Fuel Injection Control Module). The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) sends commands to the Injection Pressure Regulator (IPR) to modulate the amount of oil pressure in the rails that act on the injectors to force fuel into the cylinders at up 40,000 psi!

Mobile Mechanic says “Oil is the life blood, change it often!”

These trucks will not start if they are too low on oil, or if there are leaks in the HPOP system. Also maintenance is CRITICAL! Do oil changes every 5,000 miles religiously! Even if you use Synthetic oil, extended oil change intervals are NOT recommended.
Dirty oil damages the internal components and can greatly accelerate failure of the HPOP systems seals and IPR. Another common problem is the screen in the oil sump below the oil filter housing, the screen deteriorates and pieces of it get sucked into the HPOP damaging the pump and the IPR.
There are updated components to replace some of the common failure items, the right Mobile Mechanic can keep you up and running wherever you are, from south orange county, to Ventura, Malibu, Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park, Moorpark, Irvine, Anaheim, Huntington Beach, etc, yu get the idea, pretty much from south OC to the north through LA, Long Beach and along the 101 west into Ventura County.

1998 Ford Ranger Blend Door Actuator Replacement

Answer this question: “Temperature blend door not working”

“Can I get at this valve assembly without removing the dash ? Where exactly is this thing located ? Chiltons’ show only the cable controlled unit. I have the non cable unit. How can I install manually controlled temp blend door positioner? I think the actuator works but the link arm is broke. I need to see what is going on before I commit to removing the dash and plenum.”

I have done it on the Ranger (and other ford vehicles are similar) without removing the dash.

The blend door actuator is relatively inexpensive, about $50 at a parts store, and although the repair instructions say the instrument panel must be removed I have done a few with taking out the dash.

The actuator is a small black box with an connector. it sits on top of the plenum and attaches directly to the blend door shaft. It is a small electric motor that is controlled by the temperature dial on the dash and turns the blend door to change hot/cold position. the plastic gear inside the unit strips out, that’s why you can hear it “doing something” but the door doesn’t move.

You may be able to replace it without taking out the dash. remove the glove box and lower trim panel under the glove box, look through the opening to the left towards the middle of the truck, on top of the plenum for a small black box (about 2 or 3″ square and 1″ tall) with a single connector – remove the connector and get a mirror in above it to see the screws.

The toughest part is getting the right tool and your hand into the tight space, but it can be done,

Good luck!
