Introduction to Auto Repair and Maintenance PDF


That question, in a nutshell, is why I decided to write this book. As an owner of a business that deals with automobiles, I am constantly getting some form of that question from family, friends, and customers.

Sometimes it is a difficult question that requires me to retreat to my library in search of answers, and sometimes it is common knowledge that everyone who owns a car should know. When I began researching this book, I looked at what was already out there.

So many books try to educate you to the point where you can describe exactly what is happening in a four-cycle engine. I think that is missing the point. You probably aren’t looking for that much information; you just want to know why the car is making that funny rattle.

Often the “expert” wants to share his or her entire knowledge base with you, and all you want to know is if you need to get that thing checked out. I don’t typically respond to the above question with a full explanation of how the engine operates.

Instead, I usually ask a follow-up question or two and then give you a few things to check. What you find will determine whether you can fix it yourself or if it is time to take it to a professional.

The other problem that arose in writing this book was the fact that automobiles are changing and becoming more sophisticated every year. What was common knowledge a few years ago is now ancient history, so keeping this book relevant was a challenge.

To this end, I decided to write this book as if I were answering your direct question about what is going on with your vehicle.

I’ll start by answering questions that will most likely pop up while you own your car. I’ve asked other experts about what they want you to know about your car when you bring it to them, and what you can do to prevent problems from arising.

I won’t cover everything that may happen, but I will touch on the most common problems. I’ll give you some tips along the way on things you can do yourself, and how to stretch the life of an older car if you’re on a budget.

The aim is that you’ll keep this book to use with your future vehicles. If your friend who’s good with cars isn’t available, you’ll have somewhere to go to for the answers you need.

Or perhaps you’re the uncle or parent who gives this book to a new driver who is in need of some basic knowledge about his or her car. Either way, I hope this book serves you as well as your automobile does.
