Thank you so much for coming down to Mission Viejo to repair my blown head gasket!  You not only fixed my car but you gave me my life back.  You have no idea the stress and hassle of not having a car has had me dealing with.  I have missed my sons baseball games and have not been able to have him stay with me because I could not take him to school and God forbid the doctors or hospital had there been an emergency.
The car is running great and I cant believe how much better I feel with the piece of mind you restored for me.
If you ever need anything please feel free to call me.  Also please feel free to post this to any social media sites and give my number out to anyone who wants a reference.  Thanks again!

Hey Dave my BMW is running awesome. The acceleration is back and the coolant level is staying right where it needs to be. I can’t thank you enough.

“Yes my name is James and my car is been diagnosed with having head gasket problems. I went to a couple dealerships. They all told me that it will cost a lot to get it fixed but I didn’t have the money. I was online trying to get information regarding repairing head gaskets and I ran-into and I called and spoke to Dave. Dave was very professional and he assured me that he can fix my head gasket problem. So he came out, within an hour and a half the job was done. I asked him can I test drive it. He said yeah by all means, I tested it there was no smoking at all coming out of the tail pipe and it ran smoothly. I’m a true believer and when I got back from my test I was like how you not a millionaire because whatever you did to fix this man is great is this is this is beyond on my imagination I mean you know and the fact that he did it for $300 that was the best real deal. Imagine that someone does a head gasket job for $300 and your car is done. The dealerships said it takes like a week to two weeks to fix at $1500. So, Ideal Services is the greatest company as far as head gaskets. I recommended to anybody thank you.”

“Yes I am a satisfied customer. I’ve been driving my car now for a year after it had been diagnosed and told that I had a bad head gasket and another mechanic told me it was the intake manifold it was gurgling noise is in my heater core which indicated trapped air. I called Dave, he came out and flushed out my radiator and my whole cooling system with water, filled it up with water and the solution and everything was running and I’ve been running for year. I would recommend this definitely to friend I drive a 1999 Lincoln Town Car V8 system with 234,000 miles and I’m looking forward to getting to 300,000. Thanks.”

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 Ever Seal.  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.

Sincerely, Tevin Teixeira     Inglewood Ca.

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.
