Meet Sam Dillinger

My name is Sam Dillinger. I've been a professional, dealership technician for 18 and a half years. My first introduction to mechanical repair was when my own vehicle broke down in the fall of 1995. I was 18 and couldn't afford to pay to have it fixed. So I borrowed tools and asked a ton of questions and, eventually, was able to replace the clutch on my truck by myself. During the course of that project, I found that I really enjoyed having a wrench in my hand and figuring out the puzzle of disassembly and reassembly of a motor vehicle (weird, I know).

In the fall of 1996 I began my career as a technician in earnest. I've worked for several major car dealerships and I've specialized in:

  • Engine diagnosis and repair
  • Electrical diagnosis and repair
  • A/C diagnosis and repair
  • Driveability diagnosis and repair
  • Steering and suspension
  • Base brake and ABS brake systems
  • Transmission diagnosis and repair
