Welcome to my auto repair website! I started this site in 1996 to assist my customers who had
questions about their cars, and help people explain their auto repair problems to a mechanic.
"HOW YOUR CAR WORKS" tells how car systems work, fail, and gives approximate repair costs
"CAR KILLERS" tells about things that can fail on your vehicle and "kill it" before its time!
"ESTIMATES AND ADVICE" is where I answer questions via e-mail.
"NOISE LIBRARY" has .WAV files of car noises to help you diagnose YOUR noises.
"HOTLINKS" has auto sites and more, and "LINDA'S LEMONS" is just for fun.

Serving the Gainesville and Hawthorne Area

Got a car repair help or advice question? We've been fixing automobiles and trucks in the Gainesville area and trying to give good honest advice. Hopefully the automotive diagnostic help articles will help you diagnose whatever breaks down on your car. We have been in business since 1976, and are one of the oldest licensed and ASE certified mechanic businesses in the area. Please try to find an answer to your automotive question in my list of articles. If you can't find an answer, feel free to e-mail me for help and advice on your repair question. Give me your symptoms and I'll do my best to give you a useful diagnosis.
My auto repair business has seen a lot of changes in the years I've served the Gainesville/Hawthorne area, but I always maintain the same high degree of quality when I repair a car..I'm doing most all the mechanic work myself now, fixing cars either onsite or at a facility I built on my property near Hawthorne.

Thank you for visiting the ECONOMECHANIX WEB SITE. Please feel free to comment. We also serve the surrounding communities of Alachua, High Springs, Hawthorne, and Newberry! Gainesville has been my home since 1974, and I've loved Gvl and the Gators since I came here in the fall of 1974 to attend the University of Florida. I loved it so much I stayed and opened my car repair business. Originally it was out of the back of a 1963 Chevrolet wagon, but in 1977 a fellow mechanic and I opened an auto repair shop with actual walls, etc. I stayed in the same location for 26 years, and recently moved my operation to property I bought 15 miles east of Gainesville. I am doing most all the repairs myself now, having reduced my overhead from $1500 per month to practically nothing. I do work by appointment only. I mostly work only on my established customers cars, but I will occasionally take on new clients. E-mail me and I will either make arrangements to look at your car, or I will recommend you to someone who will.
