Recipes for Car Care : Guide to Auto Health
Preventive care isn't a mystery known only to professional auto mechanics, but rather a set of simple steps you can do yourself if you understand the "ingredients" that go into making your vehicle run. Recipes for Car Care is designed to enable you to perform preventative maintenance on your vehicle to lengthen its life while saving you money. This book covers everything from locating the hood latch to performing basic maintenance tasks such as oil changes to dealing confidently with professional mechanics and car manufacturers. Whether you are a novice at do-it-yourself automotive care or an experienced home mechanic, Recipes for Car Care will show you how to complete necessary car maintenance as easily as you would follow the "recipes" of a cookbook.
