Some auto repair jobs will require the use of some special tools to correctly identify and diagnose a problem. These tools aid in easily and efficiently making a repair. When doing a diagnosis, the basics are a test light, a multi-meter and a code reader to obtain a Diagnostic Trouble Code (aka “p-code“). If your Check Engine light is on a scan-tool will be needed. If you do not have access to a code reader, you can have the p-codes read FREE (except in California). Most local “big chain” parts stores like AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts scan your vehicle in their parking lot. If you are a beginner in the auto repair field, you should familiarize yourself with the tools of the trade and learn some of the basics.

With a little basic automotive knowledge and some auto repair tips, advice and help, you can get that next job done! No problem!
