Overview

Car care and repair is a hobby enjoyed by the weekend mechanic. It is also a necessity if an automobile is to last beyond its traditional trade-in period. In this complete, up-to-date guide to troubleshooting and repair, over 550 step-by-step line drawings guide readers through over 80 repairs and improvements, including how to fix exhaust systems, repair flat tires, unclog electronic fuel injection systems, stop brakes from squealing, and replace shattered windshields. And when drivers sooner or later run into a pole, hit a fence, or bump another car at an intersection, this book will be there to help undo the damage with advice on replacing cracked plastic body panels and dealing with minor dings and dents.

Special attention is given to diagnosing problems in new cars equipped with supposedly "unrepairable" electronic systems and an extensive section covering maintenance bsics helps amateur mechanics select the appropriate tools for the job.
