Hello Tish, I'm here in Scotland I have a new small shop mostly dealing with Mercedes cars.
Today, I am replacing a gearbox filter and changing the backend and gearbox oil (EP90)on a $96000 SLR
College seems to be a nightmare. I would look at doing courses at a manufacturer which they run for a little Money. Eric's Videos are a great starting point too.

How are you doing?

Hey all!

I'm a chick/woman/lady/bird living in Denver, and I just bought a 1953 Studebaker Commander Starlight from a guy in California. I own 2 other cars. One of them is a 1967 Ford Ranchero my dad bought new. The other is a 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX. My dad worked on the Ford as long as he owned it, and taught me quite a bit about auto mechanics.

I sort of fell in love with the body style of the Studebaker and found that it's mostly really easy to work on. I think of it sort of like Apple computers (Macs) and how everything just makes sense in the operating system. I've found a few cases where it doesn't though such as checking the gearbox fluid. If you have carpet in it, good luck! The hole, which is covered to check it is under the carpet. Maybe there's something I don't know about it, and the carpet, but oh well. That's not that inconvenient.

This isn't one of the better pics I have of it, but I'll put more on, once I get them off my phone.

Hey Ladies! My name is Kristin a 22 y/o who is looking into going to school to be an automotive technician. Is there any advice you can give for someone who doesn't have a lot of experience working on cars. My boyfriend owns his own shop and taught me the basics of changing my own tires and oil but a guys point of view is a lot different than a women's.

Hey Trish! My screen name is lar1969, but my first name is Lee Ann. I am a single mom (currently unemployed)of 3 girls and have found it necessary to start fixing my own cars. I have a red 1997 Saturn SC2 which is my current project car. I have enjoyed diagnosing/improving the performance of this vehicle but it is the Saturn LW 300 that I own which has caused me to start doing my own repairs (so I dont have to shell out $500.00 every time it needs something :( ) I also am considering a career in Automotive Technology because I am having so much fun wrenching on my own cars!

My dad helped lay my foundation at an early age for mechanics but Eric, through his videos, has taught me tons since I have begun this journey.
Good luck to you. Hope to hear from you.
