Hi! I'm Eric Hamilton - Engineer & Mechanic, last 20 years content creator and founder of FixYourCar
Automobiles can be complicated.
Without a basic understanding, where do you even start..
With the amount of content and "How-To" videos from "Billy Bob's Hack " DIY channel, it is almost impossible to go into a repair or simple maintenance job on your car with the full confidence that you are going to make things better rather than worse.
We all know the stigma that goes with repair shops and the money and time wasted just to find a shop you can trust.
The truth is... With proper technique, a little common sense and the basic fundamentals of how automobiles run and operate:
- It doesn't matter how different systems become with age and modern technology
- It doesn't matter what car make and model you have
- It doesn't matter how "seasoned" of a DIYer you are or how "mechanically inclined" you should be
All Automobiles function based off a standard, fundamental set of principles.
The truth is, the fear of the unknown...
mixed with a lack of confidence is the #1 reason why people choose not to service their own vehicles.
Nobody enjoys spending time grasping for answers to questions about their cars all over forums, groups, and "just get to the point already!' YouTube channels...
Only to be put down or ignored with your "newbie question" or better yet, sent down rabbit hole suggestions or fixes that may have nothing to do with your car's issue...Or worse, ending up even more confused on who to trust, what to believe, or where to even start.
But we have all been there...trust me.
- Made costly or stupid mistakes
- Gotten into a repair and quickly realize you may be in over your head
- Purchased parts we didn't need or purchased cheap parts hoping for an easy quick fix
- Wasted time in areas we never needed to be in
Our personal favorite, the ole' parts cannon approach. Blasting your car with every new part you can buy to end up with the same issue from the start. Never fixing the original problem.
Let's lay out the facts..
Dealerships and independent repair shops labor prices are only going up...never down. Which leaves you with two options.
1. The cheaper route.. Take your beloved vehicle to some mom and pop place that offers you cheaper prices over the phone for repairs... In extremely rare cases, the shop has a decent mechanic or two who knows what he or she is doing. But in most times, that is far from reality. They likely lack the technical backing of your year, make/model. They may have never worked on your model or have never heard of your issue or where to start on fixing it properly. They offer cheaper prices because they likely don't know what they are getting into. They may go as far as being smart enough to put OEM brand parts in your car but that is rare. One thing to keep in mind is this.... The less they can spend in parts the more they can charge in labor. FACT.. Shops make more money on labor not parts. Cutting corners means a bigger payday...period.
Worth it? Possibly.. but That is the risk both your safety and your bank account has to take.
2. The expensive route... Take your car to a dealership. Here you are at the mercy of both inflation and like any shop, the honesty of the establishment.. The mechanics are likely better and more trained to give you the results you need to get your car back on the road but you are going to pay for it. Part prices are typically 100% marked up. FACT.. Outside of Labor costs and parts. You will likely see upwards of 50-100$ in shop supplies, EPA fees and additional taxes on both labor and parts. FACT.. In some cases, this entire process is worth it. Some repairs require very advanced skills, special tools and someone to devote the hours focusing on just your car. You need them to be 100%. Your LIFE depends on it.
AT WHAT COST?
On average, shop labor rates range from $120 - $250 per hour...
General Diagnosis typically range: $180 - $230 for labor time only.
Oil changes: $159 - $179 parts and labor
Water Pump Replacement $1400 - 1700$ (depending on what engine type it is)

But let me ask you..
What if you could learn the in's and out's of your automobile to be able to do even the small things that are so often missed by car owners that could save you literally thousands of dollars down the road.
What if you could sit down with your phone and tools, gain insight on automobile maintenance with quality, "to the point" video sources you can trust? Being able to follow along with premium videos that show you the basics in the technique, common knowledge and "in the field" tips and tricks to properly service all topics of the vehicle,
AT YOUR OWN SPEED? (Even the ones that shops don't want you to know.. )
The truth is.. to be a reliable, consistent and trustworthy automobile repair technician. You need to spend DECADES in the field. Breaking, fixing, learning and studying the common issues and facing the not so common issues that come through the shop time and time again.
