TIP! Only choose an A.S.

It can be pricey to have a car repaired. In addition to having to buy parts, you also need to pay the mechanic for their work. Wouldn’t it be better if you could handle your car repairs yourself? Well, you can, if you read the following tips.

TIP! Keep a good battery charger on hand at all times. A dead battery is more common than you think and you will be able to help other broken down drivers if you have a battery charger with you.

Always ask lots of questions when your car is at the shop. What will they do to fix it? What is the problem? Preventative measures will save you a whole lot of money in the long run.

TIP! Make sure you know what is in your auto manual, and mark certain pages for reference. If you have to get an auto repair, the mechanics will need to know specifics from the manual that are unique to your car.

Check your radiator frequently. You should let your car run for a few minutes, shut the engine and open your hood. Do not open the radiator if the car is running. Look at the coolant you have in your radiator by checking it with a dipstick but remember that coolant usually needs to be mixed with water before putting it into your vehicle.

TIP! Whenever your car undergoes repairs, make sure you have the written record of what was done. Future problems can be easily solved when auto technicians have access to past records.

Record each repair that you have done on your car. Should your vehicle encounter other problems down the line, it will helpful for the auto technician to see past records. If you do not have documentation, you may have duplicate services performed.

TIP! If you do not have headlights that are shining bright enough, you may need to clean them. Residue can diminish their light output.

Remove valuable things from your car prior to taking it in to get fixed. The mechanic might need to move these things so they can do the job, and they won’t assume responsibility if anything comes up missing. Clear out your trunk, too.

Spare Tire

TIP! A spare tire and a jack are valuable items to have in case of an emergency. Typically, if you have recently purchased a car, you should have these items already.

Invest in a spare tire and a jack, and keep them in your vehicle. Many cars will come with these straight off of the dealership’s floor. Stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire is bad news. Stuck without a jack and spare tire is bad news and a big bill. Changing your tire is a simple process that can save you an expensive visit from an auto service club.

TIP! When you have a burnt out light on your car, it can save you some money if you’re able to repair it yourself. Having a mechanic do it is horribly expensive.

At some point it’s inevitable that you will have to get your car repaired. You do not necessarily have to hire a mechanic to fix your vehicle. You can do the repairs yourself and save the money. This tips in this article can help, so try doing your own.
