My husband and I (as well as both of our now grown children) have been taking our cars to Pat for over 10 years. We have never had a bad experience. Pat is honest and fair. He never pressures you to fix or replace parts. I don't know what I would do without him!

I noticed loud noises coming from the exhaust on my car. I brought it to Nelson's before work, and by lunch time the problem had been fixed.

I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good mechanic.

Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc...

The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.) Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pr...
