Need a mechanic near Lake Havasu Arizona

Post by TigerMary »

Hi all. I'm a new member with a 1991Tiger GT camping van. My vehicle broke down in the desert and is making some pretty bad engine noises. Can anyone recommend a knowledgeable Astro mechanic in this area?

Briefly, I heard an unusual noise and brought it into a mechanic in Lake Havasu. They replaced the idler pulley and tensioner, but the noise was still there. I drove it about three hours in the desert and it wouldn't start. If I waited a little while, it would start but would only go about a half a block. A mechanic in 29 Palms replaced the fuel relay and distributor and it now starts and runs but sounds awful. I don't feel comfortable running it above 40 miles an hour.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Welcome to the forum.

The closest mechanic I've heard of is in Las Vegas:

Or mobile mechanics such as:

Not sure why you posted this in the "Exhaust Systems" section. I'll move it to General.
Best of luck.

Thanks Joe. I was actually in the general topics area when I posted it, I'm not sure why it ended up in exhaust systems either. But I've been stuck in Lake Havasu City waiting for parts for two weeks and I would surely like to find a good mechanic in the Vegas area. Thanks again.
