Ladies!! Getting to know about your car isn’t just a man thing.
Women can understand the inner workings of their car…and I’d like to think that they should know about it as well.
It helps in all sorts of situations from being able to complete minor DIY repairs and maintenance to knowing when there is a serious problem and needs an expert to help.
It also helps women when they go into the shop understand the repairs and keep on top of the mechanics by knowing the basics of what they are saying.

There are a lot of places locally you can get information to learn about your car. Let’s look at some of those options.
Your local library probably has a lot of car manuals and how to books detailing the basic concepts to advanced resources for getting to know the inner workings of your car.
They also have access to online databases with even more information.
And may even hold educational programs surrounding car education.
It may seem like an odd place to get information about your car but you can ask questions at the auto shop.
You can make a special trip over to ask questions or your can ask follow up questions when you go in for maintenance or repairs and keep asking clarifying questions.
The dealer is also another place to get great information.
They know your car make and model in great detail. They will also be able to direct you to more resources to learn more about your car.
I’ve been noticing a change online.
I’ve seen several women in the automotive industry promoting workshops with the explicit goal of teaching women about their cars.
I find this wonderful and I can’t wait till one comes to this area.
As always the online world has A LOT of information and you have to be careful about the legitimacy of the resource but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t some great info out there.
Do a Google search for your make and model and start reading the articles that talk about your car. Review more general blogs too like How Stuff Works and look for engineering.
There are a lot of great resources out there that can get you started on understanding how your car works.
Do you like learning from videos? There are quite a few Youtube channels out there that are ready to show and guide you through the process of learning about your car.
