VehicleFixer Videos Detail DIY Car Repairs

Filed under: Uncategorized — heredago @ 08:59

If you’re living without a seriously trustworthy mechanic, or you just like to bust out the wrench and fix your own wheels, VehicleFixer.com’s descriptive videos are worth watching.

Many of the site’s videos appear to come from old VHS instructional tapes, so the quality’s a bit lacking by modern standards, and the cars are older models—though most of the techniques and parts are going to be the same as today’s units. You’re also treated to the cheapest synthesized soundtrack the tape makers could swing. But the videos on replacing brakes, changing oil, fixing belts and hoses, swapping out filters, and the like are slow, step-by-step, and explained in clear language, which is what really matters when you’ve got the hood open. You might have to do some clicking around, mostly to force more video and sidebar ads upon you, but VehicleFixer is probably still worth it if you want to learn how to get things done on your car. Free to watch, no sign-up required (though the site promises a share-centric members area coming soon).
