Use the touchscreen and stylus to repair and upgrade cars.
You'll learn how to use different tools such as the welding tool.
You begin as a novice at the local auto shop, where Captain Bob is your mentor and teaches you the basics of auto repair. As you look around the messy garage and all the scattered instruments and tools you need, you'll get a strong sense of the quintessential auto shop atmosphere.
You'll start with simple objectives, such as changing oil, but soon enough you'll be working on the minutiae of an engine. Speed counts: the faster you do the job, the more you get paid.
The Nintendo DS allows for unique game play control. For example, you use the stylus to control a saw. A meter on the screen shows you how fast you can saw before the blade will break. Maintaining a good speed without breaking the blade is the key to getting the job done and making as much money as possible.
Upgrade Your Own Car
As you learn more repairs and do more jobs, you can use the money you earn to buy your own car and customize it. You can choose from a classic car, race car, SUV, or a coupe, and then upgrade it with body kits, new paint, and more. Impress enough people with your ride, and you'll get a better job at a new garage.
Look At Cars from All Angles
Touch Mechanic features an intuitive interface that has portraits of characters on the top screen and the workshop at the bottom. The game has 3D models of the cars and parts, and you can rotate and look at the exterior and interiors of cars from every angle.

This game is awesome plus it keeps you playing for hours. See I love cars so this game is great. In the game you get to work on cars and change the fuel and the exhaust pipes and everything plus you get an old junker car of your own to fix up. You get to paint it change the air filter on it. Change the rim's and everything so you can take it to the car show to get qualified for the car show.
There's really not heck of whole lot to say about this game but that it's really fun!
If your a car lover and like to work on car's virtually then you'll really enjoy this game!
1. Apart from the turbocharger and the air filter, you're mostly unable to customize the engine.
2. There is no actual driving component.
I suppose a less serious third problem is that it's too linear...this game doesn't need a constricting, linear plot anyway. All it needs is an outsourced racing system to add some kind of track day or race day, and a very low level of customization for the central character (or save the coding by just not depicting the central character's race/gender at all).
In any case, an awesome game, and hopefully the first of a very successful franchise.
A lot of the modifications have to do with the cosmetic aspects of the cars which I kind of wish was different because I liked the internal mechanical lessons better. A weird thing in the description is that it says you'll do oil changes but there is absolutely no oil changing in this game!
Other than that, it is an original unique game and I wish they would make a sequel!
