Want to handle basic auto repairs yourself? This easy-to-follow guide gives you the nuts and bolts of diagnosing trouble and performing simple maintenance and repairs on your vehicle. You'll explore each system part by part and keep everything running in tiptop shape. Plus, you'll see how to go green on the road — from recycling oil and parts to choosing alternatively fueled vehicles.

  • Get to know your vehicle — understand automotive systems; check under the hood; change a tire; follow basic safety rules; change spark plugs, fuses, and the battery; and replace the air filter and PCV valve

  • Keep cool and in control — add and change coolant, find and repair leaks, change the oil, and check brakes

  • Ensure a smooth ride — choose, check, and care for tires; and understand balancing and alignment

  • Handle emergencies — identify strange sounds and smells, jump-start your car, handle overheating, and more

  • Work with a mechanic — find a reliable service facility, describe problems accurately, and get the best deal

  • Extend your vehicle's value — clean it inside and out, touch up paint, and fix dings and dents

  • Stay safe on the road — install child seats properly; learn about rollover protection, traction and stability control, and navigation systems; and more
