Car Repair and Maintenance Basics


 
Automotive
Aside from a home, a car is typically the most expensive purchase an individual will make. By taking the time to keep up on the regular maintenance and any car repair procedures that inevitable come along with such a purchase, owners better their chances of being able to hold onto their investment and keep costs to a minimum. In this article, we will outline a few basic car repair and maintenance tips you can do on your own to help you along the way.

Step 1 – It may seem like a hassle, but it’s always a smart idea to read your owner's manual. This guide will help to enlighten you to the specifics of how frequently you should replace and refill various fluids, how often maintenance is required, and various other topics that will help you with your vehicle ownership. Things like oil changes, brake fluid levels and antifreeze replacements are just some of the topics covered throughout the manual. Often, there may be reference to some light car repair operations that most people are capable of doing on their own. If nothing else, you should make yourself aware of how often maintenance should be performed in order to avoid expensive car repair in the future.

Step 2 – If you’re looking for instructions pertaining to a certain type of maintenance project or repair, you might decide to purchase a Haynes or Chilton manual specifically for your vehicle model. While these manuals can be quite handy, it should be noted that they are generally not geared toward beginners. However, at the very least, they will provide you with a better perspective and understanding of what you will be looking for. Beginner maintenance includes projects like oil changes, air filter replacement, spark plug replacement, fluid refilling and tire pressure levels. If you can get this far, you’re already a step ahead of most car owners.

Step 3 – Know when to stop. Working on a vehicle can prove itself quite dangerous and is not something which should be toyed with by those who are unsure of themselves. Vehicles should be maintained and repaired on flat ground, with blocks to keep them from moving. Additionally, the engine should be allowed to cool for a period of at least several hours prior to engaging in any type of work. Keep gloves within reach and be careful where you decide to stick your fingers, making certain you don’t allow yourself to get stuck.

Step 4 – The right tools are a necessity for any project, and automobile work is no exception. While the initial investment may prove itself a little expensive, the correct tools will make the job easier, less time consuming and will actually save you money in the long run.

Step 5 – If you’re really interested in learning about car repair, make a commitment to a class. Most community colleges will offer beginner's courses in car maintenance and repair. In these classes, you can gain a first hand knowledge of the correct techniques and tools to use when vehicle work is required.

If you find something that's over your head, there's never any shame in simply taking it in to the professionals. Find a local car shop with a solid reputation and take your vehicle in to find out the necessary steps to take. Not only will you save yourself a bit of time and ensure your safety, but by speaking with the mechanic providing the work, you just might learn a thing or two for next time.
