How do you get a shadetree mechanic license?
Remember it is not necessary to make actual repairs, only that the vehicle runs long enough to get you to the store for more beer.
1. your toolbox must have only pliers, a hammer ( big one ), a screwdriver ( doesn't matter which one), a crescent wrench, 1 roll of duct tape, some rope ( or zip ties ), leaving room for the 12 pack of beer.
2. throw the wrench away in favor of a bag of chips since you will only be using the pliers and hammer.
3. No manuals or formal training is needed as you will not really be repairing anything.
Which is good since you will be too drunk to drive in an hour.
4. The phone number of an actual mechanic so you can bug him several times for free information. ( and to schedule the actual repair work to be done after you bungle it ), tow truck number optional as you will probably use the rope from the tool box to tow it to him ( the rope must be thin enough and old enough to break at least once per mile ). Don't forget the number to at least one friend ( or a well trained dog ) to steer the car while it is towed.
5. once you have used up one roll of tape and 50 zip ties ( 5 feet of rope ) and the cost of repair for the original problem is now doubled, send in the empty roll, bag from the zip ties ( or the cut off ends ), and one crushed beer can, along with your car to the nearest junk yard and your certificate will be mailed to you. oh you dont need all that. you just paint you a sign, and hang it on the tree next to ya beer cooler , sit back and wait for ya buddies to arrive.thats a shade tree mechanic

Does a Chevy Venture require more than one can of R134 refrigerant to recharge if it is empty due to the motor having been taken out and replaced after repairs?
Just more details - we bought it used today. The shadetree mechanic we bought it from removed the motor to replace head gaskets. The son (the mechanic himself didn't speak English) said the AC probably needs recharging due to the removal of the motor. We did that today with a large can of R134. After emptying the can, the gauge that came with it is still registering pretty much empty. So how many cans might… Read More
Without seeing the car, it would be my guess that your power steering pump is either gone or getting ready to go very soon. Replacing it can be a pretty messy job. Get lots of rags and newpaper ready to clean up the oil. Shouldn't take a shadetree mechanic over 3 -4 hours. Read More

It's not a bad job. Once you've done one it just kinda makes sense. But it can be confusing if you've never changed one. Like if I told you to use a C clamp to push the caliper back in. Call up a shadetree mechanic buddy to come over and help you with the first one. Buy him a six pack. It'll be worth it. Read More
