There are do-it-yourself as well as do-it-for-me sections, so you will know what you can tackle or what you need help with.
This is a great book to have around the house for when you need it. My husband is currently in Iraq, and with him being gone Im in charge of repairs of the house, and our two vehicles, and this book has already saved me!
I kept on flipping through, and found more wastes of time,and even some incorrect information.
I used to own a copy of "Auto Repair for Dummies" I intended to order that, but ordered this instead because it was cheaper. Auto Repair for Dummies tells you how to work on your own car so you can avoid most expensive mechanic fees. Do not waste your time on this book! BLEH
There are better books, like "Recipes For Car Care," which offer simplified information without mocking the reader's intelligence.
I also bought "Auto Upkeep: Basic Car Care, Maintenance, and Repair" by Michale & Linda Gray and it is awesome. I have now been using that book, and it really helped me when I went to the mechanic last week to argue for a fair price.
