Coffee Brake: What Is Your Carytponite
For me, the end of my DIY repairs starts and ends with vehicular air conditioning systems. I'll rebuild an engine, replace a clutch in a muddy ditch (although I won't touch another Subaru STi clutch after doing one, heck I'd take a month in a North Korean re-education camp before another STi gearbox R&R), but I won't touch a malfunctioning AC system. It might be because I lack a proper tool set (find some options here on Amazon, I think the FJC KIT4 AC Starter Kit at $101.96 with free Amazon Prime shipping looks like a great deal). Maybe someday I'll muster up the courage to tackle a leaky R134 fitting, but today I'll call a guy.
Where do you start outsourcing your automotive repair?
