Help with Car Repair Manuals
There’s a lot of different ways to get help when you’re tackling car repairs on your own. However, owning a car repair manual can provide a lot of the basic and advanced information you will need. I’m not talking about one of the little guides that you find in automotive parts stores that only covers the basics.
What I’m talking about is the service manual written for the specific vehicle and intended for the use by dealership level technicians. Although they write this information at a high level of understanding, these books include something that everybody can use.
Service manuals help technicians solve complex problems by breaking them down into categories. Sometimes this information is referred to as symptom charts. These symptom charts guide you through the logical diagnostic steps to repair the given problem. In many cases only a basic understanding of auto repair is needed to follow these handy diagrams.
With that said, your results will vary depending on the type of problem happening on the automobile. As an example a performance problem like a hesitation or occasional engine stall provides a challenging diagnosis to even the most skilled technicians. However, things like no start diagnostic charts are more straightforward and yield better results for all skill levels.
Professional Auto Repair Help
Before taking my current job I would make my rounds to some of the most popular automotive forums trying to help people with their auto repair questions. I noticed a disturbing trend at these help forums. Some of the suggestions made me cringe.
A lot of people dispensing advice might mean well but in some cases the advice was very poor and even dangerous. It was also very hard for the person who posted the question to pick out a quality answer from the 30 or 40 responses from all walks of life.
Even though I have 30 years verifiable experience (linked on the footer) my tips were often ignored or disrespected by forum participants.
For me this website venture is somewhat of a hobby at this point. I have recently put up a contact box so I can get some feedback about what subjects to cover in the future. If you ask a car repair question in this box be aware it may take a long time for me to respond. I wish things where different, but I have limited time to spend on the site right now.
