Use your automotive diagnostic manuals to ferret out the types of trouble codes your cars display. Whether you are dealing with on-board diagnostics or a "check engine" warning light, these types of manuals are invaluable when you try to decipher what you need to do to fix your vehicle. Why pay someone for a task you can perform yourself? Once you know what is wrong with the car, grab your automotive repair manuals to figure out how to fix the automobile Sometimes the repair can be as easy as replacing a fuse. Flexing your automotive do-it-yourself muscles saves you significant amounts of money. If you love older cars or have a vehicle in your driveway that the manufacturer warranty no longer covers, you owe it to your checkbook to have these manuals on your garage shelves.
