Spark plugs? Fan belts? Alternators? Flat tire? Help! When it comes to auto mechanics, many women feel uneducated, unqualified, or just plain incapacitated. We simply get behind the wheel and drive; when the car starts making odd noises or refuses to start, we're forced to call for help. We entrust our cars to the hands of oil-spattered mechanics and hope for the best.

Every Woman's Quick & Easy Car Care will revolutionize the way women feel about their cars. Avoiding the long, dry, technical language of owner's manuals, this user-friendly guide presents a complete lesson in Auto Mechanics 101, from identifying the different parts of the engine to improving gas mileage to checking the air pressure in tires. Any woman with an open mind and a willing hand can follow the simple, step-by-step, illustrated tutorials on changing a tire, jumpstarting a car, installing a car seat, replacing belts and hoses, changing the oil, detailing, winterizing, performing seasonal maintenance, and much more. A comprehensive troubleshooting section offers expert advice on identifying and dealing with common on-the-road problems, and the appendix provides collision report forms for drivers to fill out with all relevant information in the event of an accident.

Great for new drivers, those who want to learn more about the inner workings of an automobile, and any woman who's ever been stuck on the road with a broken-down car, this glove-compartment resource is invaluable for dealing with big trouble, answering little questions, and dispensing everyday peace of mind.
