Save money on car repairs by finding parts yourself

Author Alex Bellamy
Submitted 27-08-2009

With a little online know-how and some patience, fathers may be able to significantly cut their auto repair bills by purchasing the parts they need themselves.

Doing so can help a family save money, which is important with a weakened economy hanging over people’s heads and with most kids going back to school. Looking for auto parts online may be some of best money-saving parenting advice some fathers may get this year.

The reason is because while car maintenance, such as oil changes and tune ups, is somewhat on a schedule, the need for repairs to an engine or the internal computer can be a surprise and produce unplanned-for expenses.

Most car experts will advise that people be aware of any slight change to their vehicle’s performance and to bring it to the dealership or an auto repair shop for a diagnosis. If problems are found early, they will be less expensive.

Even then, fathers are urged to ask their mechanic about what parts may be needed for their car and to search online for it. In some cases, people have found what they needed at a fraction of the cost. Once the part is delivered, you can bring it to the repair shop for the mechanic.ADNFCR-1662-ID-19333214-ADNFCR
