Tj Looking for a good jeep mechanic on LI

Hi,

i have the infamous engine tick. I need to have it looked at and have an estimate written up. Are there any recommendations in Nassau/Suffolk around Massapequa/Amityville area? I am thinking about having Joseph's in Wantagh/Seaford look at it but he seems to be a general mechanic. Thanks

I meant to answer yesterday but got side tracked. I would calk a place called FXG in Baldwin on seaman rd if i'm not mistaken. The F X G Automotive Diagnostics Inc

(516) 223-6740635 Seaman AveNorth Baldwin,*NY*11510

I have not used him in sometime but he is honest and if I remember one of his mechanics was into 4 wheeling. He worked on my 88 Cherokee when I was injured and could not do anything.

FWIW, I had a "tick" that I thought was a lifter but turned out to be the dist. shaft. Can you feel this tick coming from the distributor cap? A new distributor cured the problem.
