Ask Your Car Repair Question Here

There are several good ways to get your car repair question answered. Whether you need an urgent question answered right now or you've just been wondering about some sound your car is making you can find the answer right in the comfort of your living room. There are some questions that would be hard for a mechanic to answer online (for example, if you have a question about something that you see but can't describe well and can't get a picture of) but for the most part you can find out anything you need to know without taking your car to the repair shop. Let's take a look at some of the best ways to find the answers to your auto repair questions. 

Is Your Question Urgent or Very Detailed?

Car Repair Question

There are two websites that I highly recommend (and I use myself) when you are looking for an answer to a car repair question. One will charge a small fee, the other is free. Which one you use will depend on several things. It's best to ask yourself several things before deciding. 

  • Do I need my question answered right away? If your question is urgent then I would choose the paid service. You never know how long you will have to wait for a free service to answer your question, or even if they will answer it at all. If you pay to get your answer you will most likely get it within several minutes of asking.
  • Do I need a lot of detail? If you need to get detailed wiring diagrams or step by step instructions about something then I would definitely use the paid service. A free site may not have access to that information and if they do it might not be the correct information for your vehicle. It's better to pay for it and know that it is the right info than get it for free and wonder whether it will work for your car or not. 
  • How much experience do I want the mechanic to have? If you get your information from a mechanic on a free site, there is no guarantee that they have any special training or even are a mechanic at all. If you use the pay service you will get a technician that has passed a knowledge test to be sure they know about the vehicles they represent. They will also have verified (by a third party) work experience or education. Many of these technicians work at dealerships or repair shops during the day and answer car repair questions at night. 

Based on your answers above you should be able to figure out whether you can get away with getting your information from a mechanic on a free website or whether you need to get detailed, accurate information from someone with firsthand knowledge of your vehicle. Here are the two best places that I recommend.

The Best Place to Ask Your Car Repair Question

The best place (by far) to ask a mechanic your question is in the blue box below. You will be getting an answer from an experienced mechanic that has knowledge of your specific vehicle. You can get any information that you might need, from wiring diagrams to step-by-step repair procedures so you can fix your vehicle yourself. 

If you are not satisfied then you don't have to pay. You only pay when you get a good quality answer and you accept it. If you don't "accept" the answer then you don't have to pay. If you are not completely satisfied you simply don't have to pay. You can also leave feedback for the technician that worked with you.

The Next Best Place 

If you don't need too detailed of information and it doesn't have to be right away then you can try asking your question on this next website. I've found that they are usually quick to respond but the answers I've seen are not generally very in-depth and it can be hard to get more information if you need it. You can ask on online mechanic here.

No matter where you get your information or how much auto repair experience you have just be sure to take care of your car. It's easy to forget about it when you get busy, but a well maintained car will be more reliable and keep you on the road longer.
