An auto repair problem is something nobody wants. But after so many miles, auto parts wear out and fail, and have to be replaced. All vehicles also require a certain amount of maintenance like oil and filter changes, new brake linings, tires and so on. Whether you choose to do the auto repairs yourself or to take your vehicle to a repair shop or dealership, it is always a good idea to learn as much as possible about any auto repairs that might be needed beforehand.

The purpose of K Man Trucking is to provide information that can help you diagnose and understand common automotive problems so you can decide the best repair approach.

A couple of points to keep in mind about do-it-yourself auto repairs and maintenance:

First, it takes a fair amount of know-how to diagnose and service today’s vehicles. If you do not feel comfortable attempting an auto repair yourself, don’t try it. Take your vehicle to a repair professional for service.

Second, it often requires special tools and service equipment to do many repairs. This includes hand tools as well as diagnostic equipment such as a code reader or scan tool, multi-meter, test light and pressure/vacuum gauges. Some repairs also require special tools. You may also need vehicle specific service repair information such as a factory shop manual and wiring diagrams.

Third, doing auto repair yourself can be difficult, dirty and dangerous work. Again, if you don’t feel comfortable doing this yourself, don’t.
