My knowledge of cars starts and ends with turning it on.

I also can add oil on long road trips and maybe change a tire in a pinch. When we have car troubles, I let the Hubs deal with it.

When I have to pretend to know what he is talking about, I look to these bloggers for quick answers.

The Humble Mechanic is the perfect title for this blog. This Volkswagen technician admits that he is not a writer and will occasionally spell things wrong, but wanted to connect more with his customers.

Charles openly shares what it’s like to be a mechanic in a very high-tech industry. He also is incredibly charismatic in his videos even while explaining VR6 vs 18 turbo swap. I like watching his video; I feel like I can talk shop with my mechanic now.

I also recommend How Good Mechanics Become HACKS.

Follow @HumbleMechanic on Twitter. is geared toward helping consumers find a safe and reliable source for expert automotive advice and research.

Here, readers can search for an auto dealer, tire dealer, collision center, and auto service and repair centers. I recommend “Are you an annoying lane changer?” But, if you have to ask the question, you probably are.

I also recommend browsing the maintenance and repair articles. Especially, if you are like me and are seeking out general knowledge.

EricTheCarGuy not only is a mechanic, but also an artist and videographer. He launched his YouTube channel when he lost his job at a dealership.

He saw a much-needed service in the DIY auto needs and jumped.

I watched his videos, and I recommend wiper blade replacement with Kelly and Gail. I think I can now change a wiper blade.

My Auto Repair Advice was inspired by family and friends, who wished the author lived closer.

Starting as a DIY mechanic, then as a certified auto technician and finally ending up as automotive manager, this author offers straightforward advice.

I’m a fan of a clean design and easy-to-find topics. Also, the advice is easy to follow. I feel like the directions are directed at people, like me, who don’t have a clue, but would like to try to understand. I recommend “Why My Car Won’t Start” as well as troubleshooting basics.

    When we’ve found engineswork on the web, there are no more questions about “How do you fix ‘this’ thing?!”. The great thing about the internet is that it allows you to make up your own minds, and I don’t think there is anything wrong with that.

    What we do know is that if you are going to have a car that is going to go the distance, you need it to perform and be ready for anything.
