Everyone in America has seemingly lost their ability to fix things themselves. If you know anything about modern day economics, it’s that simple blue collar fixes are costing more than ever.

If you are trying to live as a middle class American, it’s more important than ever before to maintain your skills as a do it yourselfer.
Taking care of your car can seem an intimidating task, but it does not need to be. Like anything, learning how to take care of your car by yourself involves study, practice, and perseverance. Take some time to learn from someone who knows something about fixing cars. Working under someone who knows what they are doing will teach you more than just the basics- in no time you will be troubleshooting friends’ issues and making minor repairs without even needing to consult anyone for help. Practicing is going to increase your knowledge immensely. Most people learn by doing- and that is at the root of what is going on with the loss in automotive repair knowledge in America.

Getting halfway through a job only to find out you need to stop due to a lack of adequate resources is not going to leave a very good taste in your mouth. Surgeons don’t cut patients open and then abandon their mission halfway through, and mechanics do not do that with cars either.
Just because there are some obstacles to becoming a car whiz does not mean it is not possible. You can and should learn the basics of car repair because it will save you hundreds and thousands of dollars, and you will learn a great set of skills you can share with friends and family while you are at it.
