While on our way to Wisconsin in our RV we had what we thought were brake issues, which we thought had been fixed by our now-former mechanic. Mr. Sparks was able to come to us, explain what he was doing, and get us back on the road in less than 3 hours. He included both of us in his discussions and then took us on a test-drive to be sure we were ready for the road. His prices are more than fair and his customer service? Well, the man called us later that night just to check on us. I can honestly say no other mechanic has ever done that! Thank you, Mr. Sparks...you literally saved our vacation!

Mr. Sparks showed up a few minutes early (it's rare for anybody to even show up on time these days!) and I appreciate him being prompt. He has a pleasant demeanor and got right to work in diagnosing the problem. Found a solution and got my 1995 Jeep Cherokee going in no time without breaking my bank. Quality work and very professional. Everyone cringes when thinking about finding a mechanic they can trust...and I did until today. It is refreshing to meet an honest craftsman. I will not hesitate to call him again in the future. Super job!

I had a fuel filter plug up on our Ford diesel truck last week and nearly had to get the horses out of the trailer to pull us along like they do on the viagra commercial when the Dodge truck got stuck in the mud. It would've been comical but the man at the rest area near Greenfield, Indiana on interstate 70 referred us to Mr Sparks. He stocked the filter we needed for the power stroke engine and got our truck going again in very short order. I got to my destination in Illinois and as I was just east of Indianapolis going back home, the front wheel bearing went out. My dad said call that guy back and see if he can help you. Well, I called Mr Sparks and again, he was able to help. The bearing was siezed in the knuckle assembly and when his big hammer didn't loosen it, he got a bigger one. When he was nearly tired from that one, without progress, he got out his 12 pound sledge hammer. That did it. I kept him cool with lemonade I had in the cooler while he removed the corrosion from the knuckle and installed the new bearing. This truely is the best I've ever seen in service and the coolest, most ingenius personal business endeavors I've been privy to. If you live in central Indiana, you really should give this guy a call for your next service need. He's knowledgeable, well equipped, fairly priced, funny, a cowboy and he ain't bad to look at neither. Lynn Dilly
I had a wheel bearing fail on my horse trailer near Greenfield, IN and it damaged my tire. I stopped at the Tractor Supply store on St Rd 9 and told them about my problem. They told me about Daryl Sparks' business and gave me his phone number. The bearings were severely damaged and had to be cut off the spindle. Fortuneately, the spindle and the bearing hub/drum assembly were suitable for continued use but the bearings had to be cut off. The tire was blown. Tractor Supply had a tire but couldn't install it on the rim. Not to worry, Sparks has a freakin tire changer on his truck. He installed the new tire, and he had a bearing set in stock to replace the damaged ones. We removed the other 3 wheels and repacked those bearings with grease. I transport horses for hire from New York to Texas all the time and have had many service experiences. Nothing compared to this. Daryl had parts, equipment, know-how, professionalism and jokes. All in a mobile service vehicle that would be the envy of any qualified technician. Kerry Jarvis
