Who has time to write more

I’m a mechanic thanks to YouTube

Recently my car’s warranty ran out and within a few month’s time the service light went on. Being a girl of means, I ran to my computer for help. Not to contact my dealership to schedule an online appointment, but to Google the code meaning, where to buy the parts and finally, how to fix the problem myself.

microfilterI spent $22.45 for the air microfilter, which I found easily online.



I watched a 5:08 DIY video on how to replace the microfilter on YouTube.

And then I spent about 10 minutes on a Saturday under the hood of my car, becoming a service mechanic.

Since then I have replaced the spark plugs and reset the service lights, saving me about $550 (estimated).

I’ll go treat myself to a mani/pedi with the savings!

What is your favorite DIY savings?
