Meet the team
My name is Jeffrey Williams and I have been a car mechanic for over 35 years. I am currently working NYC Auto Repair Shop, in New York City and recently developed a strong passion about blogging. I decided to put together this blog where I will try and answer the most commonly asked questions I get on a daily basis from my customers.
I hope you will find your answer, and if you need to contact me, please check out my contact page!
Every since I was a little boy, I can remember spending the afternoons in my dad’s repair shop.
I got my first car at 16 and it was the best feeling ever!
I have contributed to various automotive publications but decided it’s finally time to settle for something constant.
Together with Jeff and Iliah, we founded MechanicAsk.com
