Why is the mechanic take the head off my Mazda tribute to get it in time ?
Only to make more money from you,,
I would ask him why he is doing it, your engine is based on the Ford 2.3 so it is not a valve bender, so unless he found something unusual there would be no reason to remove it.
@Mark - you devil . CONSUMER ALERT - please become a wise shopper and ask questions & get more than one estimate
