Dave saved me over $1200 by fixing the head gasket in my 08’ Range Rover. We talked on the phone and came to the conclusion that he could       repair my head gasket. Two days later he showed up and fixed it. I have been driving for 2 months and everything is working great. Thanks again. William Trotter

To Whom It May Concern,

I found Dave on the Web.  My daughter’s car had a blown head gasket after a thermostat housing leak caused her to lose her coolant and the car to overheat.  Steam was pouring out the tailpipe and the car had a major loss of power.  I called Dave and we set up and appointment for him to       diagnose the car to see if it could be repaired with Thermalweld.  He came out on schedule (a big deal to me) and sure enough, the engine was     fixable with his solution.  It didn’t take him long at all, and he put up with me asking a thousand questions, as I have rebuilt engines myself before, and explained to me what to do after the fact.

We kept in touch via text and he continued to help me with the car and even helped give me advice with my Jeep that had a similar problem that didn’t end up having a blown head gasket after all.

Wow, I gotta say, Dave is really someone you want on your side. He’s knowledgeable, dependable, and professional.  What I got out of the deal, not even considering the savings on fixing a blown head gasket with a simple, fast, and effective solution, was much more than I expected.  I would highly recommend Dave for a low-cost solution for anything he’s able to help you with for your car.  As I said, I’ve rebuilt engines myself and know a lot about cars – Dave knows his stuff.

This repair service is legit, everyone. It’s been a week since I got the Thermalweld work done to my car and it’s been running without any problems what so ever since the technician, Dave Whitmer, came to my apartment and serviced my vehicle. My car was showing the classic signs of a       damaged head gasket such as white smoke excessively coming out the tailpipe, overheating while idle, and that bubbling sound coming from my coolant reservoir. I drove my car from my apartment in Inglewood to Mid city and then to the Valley IMMEDIATELY after the work was done and my engine’s thermometer didn’t go a hair above the mid way mark. Since then I have been commuting all around LA both during rush hour traffic or just cruising and I have yet to have any problems. It’s been a full week since and trust me I’ve been watching the gauge like a sniper in combat and it hasn’t buckled at all. He also showed me how to do a full on radiator flush which will save me a some money in the future. If your car is having head gasket problems make sure you call this company instead of paying the mechanic to mess around and fix things they can’t guarantee to fix and wasting your time and money. I’m a very satisfied customer.

P.S. Best part is that they meet you where ever and practically whenever is most convenient to you.

Thank you Dave @ Ideal Head Repair,

I have a 1994 Toyota 4-Runner. About four months ago, it over heated  because of a bad water pump. After a mechanic replaced it ($275), he         informed me I also had a blown head gasket. The quote to replace the head gasket was over $1100, he could have told me about the head gasket BEFORE fixing the water pump. I didn’t have the money for the repair. I found Dave on Craigslist and called him. After we talked for about 10         minutes he said we have a good chance of repairing it. Three days later he came to my house, and repaired my head gasket in about 2 1/2 hours. I watched the whole process and could tell he knew what he was doing. We took it on a long test drive and everything was great. Dave explained that 4-Runners take a little more time & work than most vehicles but if you get them in time they can be repaired. Dave asked for a testimonial for his work, I told him I would have to drive it for a while before giving a recommendation. Three months later no problems at all. I would recommend his service to anyone.
