4 Most Common Car Repairs NOT to make- Words to the Wise

4 Most Common Car Repairs NOT to make!

Car Repair Shop Mesa

Think your car might need wheel alignment, have a bad radiator, or even asimple tire change but not quite sure?  Or maybe its an urgent situation, and you have never been under your car hood before? Or perhaps you are a car nut or a DIY car repair guy,  but gone are the days when you could leisurely work on your car in your very own backyard.

Besides, the complexity of today’s vehicles and their multifaceted features,  the problem is that many HOA rules and our Arizona heat prevent the car enthusiast from doing their own repairs.  Many of us have to turn to skilled mechanic to fix even the most mundane problems on your car or truck

That being said, there are times when you might have to deal with a car emergency, or discern whether it’s time for maintenance, so you must look under the hood yourself

4 common repair mistakes our mechanics suggest to avoid at all costs:


  1. If you have just completed a long trip or even a short drive during the scorching summers, then please wait before you inspect your car. Allow some time for it to lower in temperature before you peek under the hood.
  2. Loosen the radiator’s top carefully and remember to step back almost immediately.  WARNING do not be tempted to light a cigarette near your vehicle if the battery is exposed. You may risk an explosion!
  3. If you’ve just returned from work, take the time to change before you examine your car. Getting grease or oil on your clothes is very likely to happen as soon as you open the hood, and  it should be the least of your problems.  Plus, getting your tie caught when you look under the hood could lead to a catastrophe.
  4. In case you’re scrutinizing your car or truck during the evening or early morning, make sure to choose the illumination of an LED lamp. Other lighting options may simply get warmer until they suddenly spark up. Certain types of lighting should ALWAYS be avoided when you are close to the car battery.
