Having your vehicle(s) serviced and repaired at the dealership or local repair shop is tremendously expensive. Depending on where you live, you're paying between $75 to $135 per hour for labor. Add a hefty parts markup and it is easy to see how even the smallest repairs cost several hundred dollars or more. Transmission service and repair can be even more costly.
To combat these high costs, vehicle owners are choosing to do some of their own automotive service and repair work. With a few tools and a little know-how, most anyone can service their vehicle(s) and perform minor repairs.
