A part of growing up is helping your father to fix the car. Minor fixes here and there were all taken care of by your dad, and you rarely saw a mechanic turn up at your doorstep to do ay fixing. Cut to the present: you still try to fix the minor car issues by yourself with a little hep from Google or maybe your father. However, there are some car troubles that are better handled by the professional mechanics to prevent any further issues. Here is a list of such problems:
- Changing the clutch
Firstly, this one can be fatal if done wrong. Secondly, this may require the engine to be removed. These kinds of car repairs are best left to the mechanics.
- Fixing the air conditioner
Yes, you may be restless without the malfunctioning air conditioner and hence decide to take matters into your own hands. However, with complex laws of thermodynamics and gases involved in the procedure, you may not able to find the solution. So, this high-pressure (literally) job is definitely something that needs to be taken care of by a professional.
- Stuff around air bags and fuel tanks
As a rule of thumb, never even attempt to mess around or try to fix things around these parts as they are inherently explosive (in different ways, though). While the air bags can come open and blast you through the seat, an explosive gas tank can destroy everything.
- Changing the windshield
Changing, replacing, fixing, or anything related to that the piece of glass needs to be handled by the mechanic or a glass specialist. Strong adhesives and impeccable spatial reasoning are the resources needed here which you may not have, so…
- Metal body work
You will find a hundred different advertisements proclaiming that they have the products needed to fix that ugly dent in your care all by yourself. Moulding or fixing metal sheet is a precise art and hence, better left to the big guys.
- Fixing an automatic
Trying to repair an automatic transmission car is yet again one of those things that you absolutely cannot afford to get wrong. It requires some professional equipment, knowledge of mechanics, and years of experience to get right. Do you have it? No? Then it’s wise to leave the job to those who do.
- Unbending the frame
This requires an amount of force that only an industrial level machine can provide. Unless you have one of those lying around along with a perfect understanding of which the direction does the force needs to be applied to, don’t even think of doing this repair yourself.
- Anything electrical
The cars of today aren’t as simple as those that ran the through the streets decades ago. They are more complex and include more wires. You run the risk of short-circuits and voiding the warranty on your beloved car.
Be safe, and ensure the integrity of your car by hiring a professional to fix it up.
