This is the top-selling auto repair guide - 400,000 copies sold - now extensively reorganized and updated. Forty-eight percent of U.S. households perform at least some automobile maintenance on their own, with women now accounting for one third of this $34 billion automotive do-it-yourself market. For new or would-be do-it-yourself mechanics, this illustrated how-to guide has long been a must and now it's even better. A complete reorganization now puts relevant repair and maintenance information directly after each automotive system overview, making it much easier to find hands-on fix-it instructions.Author Deanna Sclar has updated systems and repair information throughout, eliminating discussions of carburetors and adding coverage of hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles. She's also revised schedules for tune-ups and oil changes, included driving tips that can save on maintenance and repair costs, and added new advice on troubleshooting problems and determining when to call in a professional mechanic. For anyone who wants to save money on car repairs and maintenance, this book is the place to start. Deanna Sclar (Long Beach, CA), an acclaimed auto repair expert and consumer advocate, has contributed to the "Los Angeles Times" and has been interviewed on the "Today" show, "NBC Nightly News", and other television programs.

"....some of the wording is diggerent." Is that an example of the American wording?

Problem: Car Won't Start.
possible causes:
Is the Key inserted & turned?
is there fuel in the tank?
Has the clutch ( or brake) been held down whilst starting
Are you in the right car?

if none of the above help, follow the following procedure for cars under 1 year old.
Locate 'tax disc' holder, usually on the bottom near side (left from inside) of the windscreen.
read back of disc holder (not the disc itself)
this text should include a telephone number to you breakdown company.
ring this number
swear at the automated system
take great care to alleviate all frustration onto the automated system, it can't hear you.
under no circumstances continue this frustration alleviating swearing when you finally speak to a human, they can hear you.
be prepared to speak slowly and clearly to the human, they are likely to be located in a far east country & will only understand words used regularly on British soaps (except swearing, they understand this)
once you explain your location, which will take great difficulty due to lack of landmarks, they will explain they can find you by your mobile signal. at this point, you must still not swear. they will give you an ETA for the breakdown person, and hang up. You may now swear again.
Your ETA will arrive before the Breakdown truck, repeat the above process, during which you will be told'Oh, Pauline did this one just before she finished for the day, I've just looked, and she hasn't clicked send' no matter how much you want to, I must stress at this point you most definitely should not swear, 'Mark' will click delete if you do.
