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.
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.
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 (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.
If you want more information on this service then read my review here.
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.
I've answered hundreds of questions through my website. Here is a search box you can use to search my entire site.
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.
