Overview

For more than 100 years, the editors of Popular Mechanics have been providing car enthusiasts with the skills and confidence they need to keep their vehicles running right and looking great. This manual is crucial for anyone who wants to know the automobile’s basic components, from the engine to the electronic systems, and to understand how they work, what can go wrong, and how to make repairs. Find out how to maintain and replace windshield washers, fix steering wander and faulty cruise control, and purge bad smells from the interior. Get smart advice on how to pass emission inspection and find service data online. And because car owners want their ride to look as good as it works, there are even instructions for removing bumper stickers, tinting windows, and adding pinstripes.
With more than 90 projects, The Complete Car Care Manual—one of Popular Mechanics most successful books—will guide owners step-by-step through what it takes to hush those squeaks, replace the u-joints, change their own oil and filter, and so much more.

    This books details the specifics of automotive maintenance.

    In reviewing this book by the authors of Popular Mechanics, I found it to be both helpful and interesting in determining specific issues relating to my personal automobile. It was a informative and very understandable on how to work on a automobile and presented in unique format. I personally would recommend it to family and friends. The only problem is that Barnes & Noble no longer stocks this book in their Omaha, NE stores.
