Our Auto Technicians And Lack Of Tools by pannyman(m): 12:13pm On Nov 06, 2018
I just can't help noticing how bereft of tools most of our auto technicians (mechanical and electrical) are. It is so glaring if you watch Youtube car repair videos a lot. Most of our mechanics do not have even basic ratchet wrenches that can save them a lot of time. Often they need to improvise to get the work done, which can lead to serious damage to car parts.

It appears to be difficult to source most of these tools locally, so I am already beginning to order them from abroad so that I can do some DIY work, and if necessary lend to a mechanic working on my car. Youtube videos have been quite an eye-opener. I have realized I can do stuff like change spark plugs and replace oxygen sensors by myself. All I need are the right tools, the right knowledge and the right attitude. Meanwhile, I already have my scan tool, so no guessing if a CEL appears.
