There are two types of people who work on cars: those who have to and those who want to. While there are plenty of guides for people who are working on their cars out of necessity, this book is not one of them. This book was written for the true enthusiast who WANTS to work on their vehicle because they enjoy it.
Car Care for Car Guys gives you the critical car care knowledge and advice that true gearheads possess, but that could take years to acquire on your own. Author Ralph Kalal tells you what you need to know before you get your hands dirty under the hood. After following him step by step through a selection of detailed how-to projects, you'll be ready to tackle almost any automotive maintenance task or repair. While the other guides simply tell you how to repair something, this book goes in much greater depth, teaching the budding enthusiast not only about the steps required, but how the systems work, and why the repair is important.
This book is unique because of its 350 detailed color photos that clearly illustrate the best tools and methods available to folks who enjoy maintaining their cars themselves, rather than having someone else do it for them. The thinking man or woman's car care guide, this book is guaranteed to deliver the fundamental car care knowledge needed to allow anyone to work on their car, and have fun doing it.

About the Author:

Ralph Kalal has been working on his own cars since he was a teenager in the 60s. He's shared all the joys and frustrations of those who like to fix their own cars, but don't have a degree in auto mechanics. It led him to write this book intended for people who like cars, like working on cars, but may be a bit reluctant to do it because they're afraid of what they may not know.

Review:

The modest $24.95 cover price makes it a wise investment in our minds, since it would easily pay for itself after a few sessions of garage therapy. ---Grassroots Motorsports, October 2008

We highly recommend this book, it will pay for itself in your first project. --Performance in Motion, Oct/Nov 2008

The informative, concise, and professionally written text reflects the author's expertise, as well as detailed photos in series, make this an excellent addition to the garage library. ---Cars & Parts, reviewed by Jim Hinckley, December 2009
