With fuel costs, car tax and parking charges forever rising, drivers are looking for ways to cut the cost of keeping their car on the road. Fortunately there is one thing you can reduce: the cost of servicing and maintaining your car. With garage prices continuing to rise by the hour, it makes sense to learn the basics for yourself - and you don’t have to be a mechanic to do this.
Here's where this invaluable book can help, by showing you how to do basic servicing and maintenance. Not only will you have the satisfaction of doing otherwise-expensive jobs yourself, you will also have learnt something along the way - and recouped the cost of this book (and a bit more besides) with your first oil change.
About the Author
An avid petrol-head, Trevor Fry has been maintaining his own cars for the last 41 years, from a 1964 Morris 1100 to his current car, a Skoda Octavia 1.9Tdi, with many in between, including Hillman, Renault, Ford, etc. Putting his enthusiasm for cars and driving to good use, Trevor worked as a supervisor in a motor-mechanics workshop for six years, maintaining both cars and motorcycles. It didn't take him long to realise that basic DIY servicing and maintenance was easily done at home, which ensured that the work had been done correctly, and increased the resale value of the vehicle.
