Most Advanced Degree:   Ceritficate of Pre-Vocational Educa
Certifications, Awards, Patents, Publications & Other Education:   I have experience rather than qualifications. I have been working on cars for the past 20 years but only seriously for the past 18 years and I am now a mobile mechanic in my home area
Experience:   22 years of mechanical experience & I am the mechanic in my own automotive partnership
Testimonial:   Recently had a Nissan Primastar 1.9 DCi brought to me because it was losing power, cutting out, smoking, and drinking diesel like no tomorrow, and all of this at all engine temperatures.

A local garage could nbot find anything worng, and had suggested that it would need to be subjected to Renault diagnostics (DCi engine), at a skyward cost to the owner, NOT including the repairs!

I took charge of the vehicle, and in a nutshell, cleared a blockage in the intake and cleaned a sticking EGR valve.

The Van now runs as though a new engine was fitted, and with a final bill to the owner of £90 ($180), it didn't break the bank either!
