Your Car, Your Care — 3 Reasons to DIY Your Basic Car Maintenance

Why You Should Have a Basic Understanding of Car Maintenance

Have you ever considered performing maintenance on your own car? Many have considered doing so because they’re interested in how their vehicle works and they want to save some money.

When you have your car repaired or checked out by an auto mechanic, it’s often the labour that’s expensive. So having these skills would come in handy.

Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of learning to maintain our own vehicles.

Save Money

One of the main reasons that many people decide to work on their own car is that they want to save money. When you perform your own car maintenance, you still need to buy parts, but you can save a lot on the cost of labour. Getting the right parts often doesn’t cost you much but paying for an expert to install them or do other work can be a lot more expensive.

It’s important to take into account the cost of any tools you might need, though. The initial expense might be a fair amount, but you’re making long-term investments.

You Can Save Time

Another benefit of working on your car is that you might be able to save time. You don’t have to follow the schedule that an auto shop might offer. It could take weeks for a professional to fix your car, especially if they’re busy. But if you, do it yourself, you can do it whenever you want.

Consider your skills with the other jobs you may need to do. Would it be quicker to do them yourself? Only you know the answer.

You Can Determine What the Problem Is

When there’s a problem with your car, it’s really helpful to know what it is before you take it to be repaired. Knowing what the issue is in advance allows you to make a better decision about what you need to do to repair it.

Do you need to see a professional or can you fix it yourself? If you do need to find a mechanic, you can at least have a better idea of the best place to use and how much you should be spending on repairs.

My sister and I had many questions about the different courses. The staff present including the boss Mr Wee were very patient and friendly to help us. The centre at Toa Payoh was also easy to get to and centre facilities were kept clean and tidy. We have a very good experience.
