Order a repair manual for your car!

If you made it this far, chances are you want to work on your own car. You might have even started to get your tool collection together. I have to admit, it's still exciting to behold a tray of brand new tools. But all too often, new DIY mechanics forget one of the most important tools of all -- an auto repair manual for their car! Not only is your manual full of how-to articles, it's packed with important technical information that will help you repair your car correctly and efficiently. As you work on your car, you'll be surprised at how often you refer to your repair manual.

Bottom line: If you don't have a repair manual you should really buy one today.
