What it Takes to Become a Mechanic

Good mechanics are worth their weight in gold. However, becoming a good mechanic involves many different factors, from top notch auto mechanic training, to temperament. No one single aspect makes y...

Avery Barton's insight:

To be a good mechanic you not only have to have the skills and knowledge of cars, but people have to trust you. When people trust you, they will come back when they have other car troubles. A good way to get people to trust you (aside from fixing their cars quick and thorough the first time) is to get the proper schooling. This will prove to them that you know what you're doing and will make them confident in you that you can get it done right.

3 Mistakes Not To Make on the Path to Becoming a Mechanic

3 Mistakes Not To Make on the Path to Becoming a Mechanic | Avery's CE Project- Becoming a Mechanic | Scoop.it
Avery Barton's insight:

1. Make sure you really do enjoy working on cars, because there are a lot of people who are stuck in the career who don't enjoy what they do.


2. Don't be afraid to ask another mechanic for assistance, because the worst thing you can do is cause more damage to someones car because you tried to fix it when you had no idea how to.

 

3.Every mechanic wants to open their own shop, but don't do it right away if you don't have the first-hand experience under your belt

Newsday
Artist and designer McGuire weighs in with his “dinocar,” a bright green Super Beetle sporting stegosaurus-like fins that give it the appearance of an oversized Christmas toy.
Avery Barton's insight:

Thought I would scoop this because this is the car that I own, same year and everything.The '71 super is unique because it the first year of the super beetle series. Super beetles are different from standard beetles because they switched the front suspension to a MacPhearson strut system. '71-'72 Supers have a flat windsheild, and '73-'79 supers have a curved windshield. I love my car, but to be honest, I like standard bugs rather than supers.

What Not To Do When Fixing Up Your Car - Car Repair @SmashFlare

What Not To Do When Fixing Up Your Car - Car Repair @SmashFlare | Avery's CE Project- Becoming a Mechanic | Scoop.it
Car maintenance and repair is for many of us an expense that we could do without and it's tempting to cut corners and try to salvage the damage ourselves, whether it's a minor problem or a big problem.
Avery Barton's insight:

Make sure that you have your car tuned up regularly, whether you're doing it or taking it to a profesional. Don't ignore warning lights, because those are signs that your car could have serious problems and could get worse if you don't fix it. Also, if you need to  take your car to a shop, make sure that you shop around and get many different estimates, not just one. Shopping around can save you a lot of money in the long run.
