New to the area and my Alfa needs help

Is there a current list of good mechanics in the Jupiter area? I just moved here and, well, my 1989 Spider Quad has developed a problem - oil pooling around a spark plug.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Lisa, the long lady in the little red Alfa

Can't help with a mechanic, but can offer a quick suggestion. If the oil is pooling around the front spark plug, then the cause is most likely the oil filler cap. One quick fix may be to remove the cap, then compress the two tabs slightly such as to make for a little tighter fit. If that doesn't work, a new cap with a new rubber gasket might do the trick.

HTH,
