This sounds extremely snarky. The answer would be, YES! You take your car to get fixed and the mechanic has to "re-create" the problem or they can't fix it (hense why intermittent issues really suck). Same goes for any service person. You tell them the problem, they investigate, do tests and come up with solution.
