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.
