Houston Area Wrangler Owners
Can anyone recommend a reliable, trustworthy mechanic in the Houston area? Especially northwest Houston...

I have dealt with A One Auto Repair (formerly Auto Check) for the past 18 years. I have found them to be honest and reliable.They are located on Jones Road one block south of Fallbrook next to the Pilgrim Cleaners. Additionally, they always stand by their warranty. Ask for Judy (Manager) or Mark (Chief Mechanic).

Great...and that's very close to home. Thanks! I'll let you know how it goes.

I can recommend my mechanic. He works out of his garage, after his full-time job as a mechanic. He works for a VERY reasonable price.

Last year I flooded my YJ and he was able to save the motor and get me up and going again. I live off of 290 and Fairbanks. He lives off of 290 and Tidwell.

What do you need done?

Basically, the Jeep runs really good. I have an oil leak from the bottom, behind the motor (directly under the front seat). It's not much, a few drops after I drive it. Then it seems to stop when the oil pressure goes down. I'm hoping its just a gasket.

Also, I think the oil pressure sending unit needs to be replaced. My wife was driving it the other day and the "check gauges" light came on and the oil pressure needle went all the way down. The Jeep continued to run fine, and a few minutes later, the light went off and the oil pressure gauge went back to normal. I'm pretty sure I can replace that myself. I'd like to have that leak fixed though.

I live up in Cypress (290 and Fry Road). It's a little far, but I'd be happy to drive it in there for a good mechanic who won't kill me on the price. Please let me know what you think, and give me his contact information.

His name is Arial. His number is 832-498-1768. He works until 5PM - 6PM during the week. He likes to see the "issue" first before hand shaking to the cost of repair. If you like, I can meet you at his house and we can see "what's up". I can guarantee you that it will be cheaper than taking it to any shop and you will get quality work. If you like, I can arrange the meeting. Let me know.
