Any one have a good, honest mechanic in San Antonio?
I need to buy a cheap used car, and want to have it checked out before I buy one.
Thanks guys.

What kind of vehicle???

Whoops, sorry.
It will probably be something Japanese - Toyota, Nissan, or Honda.
Mainly looking for a guy to do a compression test and check out the tranny.

That's one tool I don't have. Yet. Don't forget to check the radiator cap and radiator for leaks.

No worries dude!

When i sold my car in Australia, a couple of tire kickers told me to take off the radiator cap when it is cold. If you see big bubbles come up, like it was boiling water, then the head gasket was about to go.
Is this true?
