all repairs should be quoted and documented up front, any additions must be authorized before the shop does the repairs... however, unless they charged you $544.99 for an oil change, I wouldn't sweat it..:)
The mechanic. He should have liability insurance to cover it. A lot of the service tickets have fine print about the shop not being responsible for fire theft, or other damage. So if you have signed a ticket, they may not be responsible.
have a qualified mechanic work on it.
no it could keep your electric fans from coming on if your mechanic broke it you should have your mechanic replace it

I have a 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer, and my mechanic said it should be replaced every 50,000 to 60,000 miles.
If you buy blue xenon bulbs they are easily fittable to headlights on most car designs. Any mechanic should be able to do it or you can also do it yourself. If you take it to a mechanic bring the bulbs with you.

The mechanic is not responsible for what happens in his parking lot. Your car has insurance, you will have to file the claim through your company. You should file a police report so that if the hit and run guy is caught, he will be responsible.
find a new mechanic, the purpose of a mechanic is to diagnose the problem and give you a quote of the needed repairs, once you authorize said repairs, the mechanic is responsible for stcking to the quote, he/she should not proceed with further repairs until you have been notified. all of the parts removed should have been tested, if there was any inclination of part malfunction and or failure. if you are not satisfied with the work performed have the parts removed and receive a full refund then take your car to an authorized and factory trained tech, ie. your local dodge dealer. you will pay more but the quality of service and the warrenty on the work is much better
Yes. You should also get a second opinion from another mechanic before buying the job.
I would suggest a second opinion...Try another mechanic.
Any certified mechanic should be able to replace your seat belt assembly. You will want to hve ths repair done ASAP,driving without a seatbelt is against the law and very unsafe.
White exhaust usually means that there is water in the combustion chamber and there is a crack somewhere. Pull out the dipstick and see if the oil is a milky white. If it is then you have either a cracked head or a cracked block. Heads cam be replaced somewhat affordable by a reputable mechanic, cracked block the engine is toast needs to be replaced.
do it yourself and its like 30 bucks pay a mechanic and maybe 75
If you have ever replaced a water pump on any vehicle the answer would be "yes" you can do it yourself.
My independent Toyota trained mechanic recommended the factory requirement of 90,000 miles. Hope this is helpful.
None. A crew chief does the write-up of the fault. It is up to a mechanic to argue about why the bulb should not be replaced yet.
Same thing happened to mine. I had to replace the whole thing. Mechanic told me it was due to a nonworking electrical wiring that was connected to the brake lights were out. Once you replaced the whole thing, it should be working.
This is a big job requiring removal of the engine. The entire clutch should be replaced at the same time. It is not a job for the casual mechanic. --Ken
1999 Lexus? The LS300 i think has a timing belt. I am not sure. Your going to want to check with a mechanic to make sure.
To be a mechanic, you should have a certificate. To get most of these, you just have to pass a test.
Any reputable mechanic can do this job. Check around with different auto repair shops and get estimates. Check with family or friends and see who they recommend.

You should always take your car to an auto mechanic. Repairing a car can be costly, lengthy and difficult. If you are not a mechanic, then I wouldn't recommend that you repair your own car.
Yes. The rotor is held in place from the factory by two clips. These are generally not replaced by some mechanic during a brake service.
