Thread: Greg's Value Auto Repair

    Thumbs up Greg's Value Auto Repair



    A+ rating from me, Team Yellowsub, Offroadaz, AZsteve-o and others.

    It usually ends up costing me the same to have him do my work as it would for me to buy the parts and do it. No upcharge on the parts that he usually even gets at discount. Knowledgeable with all vehicle types. Welding stuff too if needed.

    I just had my 100k mile maintenance belts, pump, flush, thermostat, etc, etc done. Xterra forums say expect $700 to $1000 at dealer. I paid $400. Back in one day. Parts would have cost me $350 alone.

    He also figures out where to get hard to find parts like my centerlink heims. He found them at one race shop in town, I couldn't find them anywhere at all.

    just another positive review for Greg

    My sisters car had an issue with stalling whenever she let off the gas. My Dad had taken it to his normal mechanic and they "fixed" the problem. 1 day later it was still doing it. He took it back to them again and they looked at it and couldn't figure out what was wrong. I told him about Greg and the good work he did so he gave him a try

    Greg had the car for 2 days and found out the fuel pump was bad. He had had it fixed and back to my Dad quicker than the professional shop. Great work and always a great price on labor. A+

    GMC heading back into the shop. The waterpump started leaking on the trip out to KOH. Will also have him look at a few other things that fixed.

    Just got the shiny jeep back from him on Sat. He fixed the overheating issue and while it was in did the valve covers. You have to discharge the AC and remove the lines to do the passenger side.

    All done and working great!

    wrench

    Sister in law's truck over there for emissions.
    My AC to be fixed soon.
    Mom's chevy was just over there for pads all the way back to the booster and some top end work.

    When I tried to get Noel's Civic water pump out on my own, I got to the last bolt that also holds the tensioner on it and it wouldn't budge. 8mm recessed allen that Sweathog found out for me that was recalled too many miles ago for me by Honda. Turns out it freezes and can breaks off in the engine. I broke two socket wrenches on it using the hi-lift jack handle for torque and it didn't budge but did start wallering. I lowered the engine to get at it through the wheel well minus the wheel and plastic and hammered the 8mm in to ensure it was snug and still no budge. So I pulled a FTS and put everything back together and drove it to Greg's. He began the process of heating and reheating for a few days and then welded a larger allen in the hole and tried at it and nothing. He read what I read about it's potential for breaking and then saw the bolt was frozen because the bushing it was in was frozen. So in that tiny limited space, he hacked down the tensioner bracket down enough to weld a BA pipe to the bushing and bolt and broke the whole thing free the good way.
    He then put a new bracket in and a new bolt with some antiseize for good measure.

    ALL of that STILL cheaper than having a dealer replace the WP if all the bolts had just fallen out on their own accord.
