Repairing your car by yourself is both a great learning experience and a way to save money. You do not need to seek auto repair services. You will save the money you would have paid the auto repair service provider.
But there is a catch. You must learn the basics of repairing the car. You need to check the power steering fluid, washer fluid, coolant level, brake fluid level, cabin air filter, rubber seals around the door, oil level, tire pressure, bulbs, keep a log book, replace air filters, replace wiper blades, and lubricate locks, hinges and hood latch. You need to check all the vital fluids of your car. The power steering fluid is hydraulics. You must check to make sure you are in between the min and maximum level. The car manual exists to help you maintain your car without visiting a professional.
The next step is checking the windshield washer fluid. Ensure it looks good. Besides, you must make sure the coolant level is within the right minimum and maximum range. There should be no cloudy or oil in there. If you see that then you have bigger problems and will require the intervention of a professional. The brake fluid is generally around where your feet are in the car. You must check it to ascertain that it is at the right level.
