Auto Repair for Dummies


Like all of the Dummies books, this one makes learning easy. We chose this book over others due to its completeness and ease of use. It not only tells the how of maintenance and repair, but it also explains engine systems so that your budding mechanic knows and understands how the engine works and the why of keeping things running smoothly.

Chapters include:
Get to know your vehicle — understand automotive systems; check under the hood; change a tire; follow basic safety rules; change spark plugs, fuses, and the battery; and replace the air filter and PCV valve
Keep cool and in control — add and change coolant, find and repair leaks, change the oil, and check brakes
Ensure a smooth ride — choose, check, and care for tires; and understand balancing and alignment
Handle emergencies — identify strange sounds and smells, jump-start your car, handle overheating, and more
Work with a mechanic — find a reliable service facility, describe problems accurately, and get the best deal
Extend your vehicle's value — clean it inside and out, touch up paint, and fix dings and dents
Stay safe on the road — install child seats properly; learn about rollover protection, traction and stability control, and navigation systems; and more
