Today i talk about diy car care. I talk about not getting ripped off by the shop when you take your car in.

I talk about the benefits of having some basic knowledge which will help you tell the mechanic whats wrong so he can better diagnose the vehicle.

I mention the benefit of having a service manual even if you never plan on fixing your own vehicle. I talk about saving money by cross referencing manufacturer part numbers and buying aftermarket parts and fluids.

I talk about the benefits of owning an engine code scanner. There are benefits of being able to read your engine codes and have an indication of whats wrong before you take your vehicle to the shop. I give a recommendation of which type of code scanner i would buy which is Here. This one is the current one i use for all of my vehicles.

You can buy my old code scanner which does obd 1&2 Here.

Here are a couple of repair videos i made.
