The top-selling auto repair guide--400,000 copies sold--now extensively reorganized and updated
Forty-eight percent of U.S. households perform at least some automobile maintenance on their own, with women now
accounting for one third of this $34 billion automotive do-it-yourself market. For new or would-be do-it-yourself
mechanics, this illustrated how-to guide has long been a must and now it's even better. A complete reorganization now
puts relevant repair and maintenance information directly after each automotive system overview, making it much easier
to find hands-on fix-it instructions. Author Deanna Sclar has updated systems and repair information throughout,
eliminating discussions of carburetors and adding coverage of hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles. She's also revised
schedules for tune-ups and oil changes, included driving tips that can save on maintenance and repair costs, and added
new advice on troubleshooting problems and determining when to call in a professional mechanic. For anyone who wants to
save money on car repairs and maintenance, this book is the place to start.
