    Good article Lucky! FWIW, back in the 1970's and into the 1980's I was a master mechanic - even had my own auto repair shop in Urbana Illinois. I've been factory trained by - wait for it... Volvo, Subaru, Jeep, Toyota, Fiat, Lancia, and AMC. Even as an "expert", I would never do anything to repair a broken automobile without the shop manual. That is the first thing you want on-hand. Next is a proper set of tools. Given the cost of this stuff these days, it is probably cheaper to get most of your repairs done by a proper shop! Myself, I usually have my favorite local garage do all of my repair work. As an "expert", I can usually provide them with a proper diagnosis when I bring my Toyota Camry in for work, and they respect my experience, out-dated as it may be!
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
