The Do-it-Yourself procedures will guide you step-by-step through many basic vehicle services that you can do yourself. Each of these chapters have safety reminders and as with "Safety First" and "How-it-works" there are videos of each of these procedures on our YouTube channel as well.
Above all that we have to offer on this site, safety is by far the most important topic covered. To support this website and our book are YouTube videos for many of the most important areas of safety. Please watch all safety videos before attempting and DIY service or maintenance procedure. Thank you.
Hand in hand with safety is a well rounded understanding of how the different systems in your car work. As with the Safety videos, we urge you to watch these "How-it-works" videos before attempting to do any service or maintenance procedure that you are not familiar with.
