Re: DIY Car Maintenance and Repair

One thing you will learn very quickly, as I did, the disposal of oil, filters, etc, is not easily located in every area and some garages charge you to take the oil you bring to them since they have to pay to have it removed.
Other thing would be the work that you do, may not be seen "worthy" by the inspection people and you may have to have it signed off by a garage.
Last note, it is not easy to find spare parts for cars either. There are some salvage yards, but the price and guarantee are as you would expect, CRAP.
I brought my tools for my bike and use them regularly. Garage sizes are also very tiny, and whatever you do, don't do it on a SUNDAY!!!
All in all, bring them with you, you never know when you need a 3 foot strong bar!!
