Default Jacksonville repair shop? (non dealer)

Anybody on here from the NEFL area that has had GOOD experience with a shop. I need to have this oil leak traced and fixed and I refuse to take it to either of our Lexus dealers in town. Thanks

Jax Foreign Auto... off of University. Guy that runs it is sort of a hard *** but they do good work. When I first got my car, they did my timing, power steering, front seals, engine and trans mounts. Over a year later, no problems, no leaks.

This "mystery" leak started AFTER I changed the valve cover gaskets, coil packs and plugs. I am just giving up on tracking down this small leak

When I was younger I would do more. I have installed short blocks, built multiple V8 upper ends, installed a pro charger on my old z06. Needless to say I feel dumb taking it in for this small leak!!! Plus my 3 and 4 year old boys keep us crazy busy

I completely understand, just giving you a hard time. I do my own work, so I don't have any valuable info on shops for you. Sorry.

A lot of times when you fix one leak another can spring up because the pressure goes through the weakest points. You can end up chasing it.

Also... If your budget can handle it, All Euro Car Care. Small shop and there is a waiting list to get a car in. But... he's the real deal. Talk to Frank
