Whether you need to do some work on your automobile yourself, or you need to find a Houston auto repair service, there are quite a few helpful guides online for you to use. Specifically, Repair Pal has become on of the most user friendly, and helpful auto repair sites I have found.
The site is so in depth that you can look up virtually any vehicle you want help with. Just search for a 1999 Acura TL for example. When you get to the page there are many reviews for the vehicle itself, but also listings of common problems, and you can even ask questions of other users about your precious Acura TL.
On top of car specific pages, you can even just take tips on how to do an oil change, or how to perform, or where to get a professional brake job. These handy guides talk about your car symptoms just like your doctor would and let you know exactly what is going on. this is VERY helpful for those of us who don't want to do our own repair work, but aren't exactly trusting of our mechanics. Just knowing what needs to be fixed before you go even if you can't do it yourself is very empowering.
