Baker & Taylor A practical guide to car care covers basic repairs, reasonable rates, and the dangers of bad driving habits
Blackwell North Amer When a divorce left Lucille Treganowan with no real skills and three young children to support, she turned to the only profession she knew: auto repair. While working as a bookkeeper in a local Pittsburgh auto shop, she began reading manuals to learn the lingo and to be able to talk to customers more knowledgeably when the boss was away. Soon, she knew the theory behind the repairs better than the mechanics in the shop - and they started asking her for advice. Eventually she was made a partner along with the two male owners. But she soon decided that she wanted to do things differently, so she opened her own shop and took some of their best mechanics with her. That was in 1973. Twenty-three years later, Lucille has become one of the foremost experts on auto repair and the star of her own national cable show, "Lucille's Car Care Clinic." In Lucille's Car Care, she takes you under the hood and gives you the lowdown on the basics of auto maintenance and repair, including how the seven systems in your car operate; how to save money by performing a monthly "Scouting Trip"; how to prevent larger problems through routine maintenance; how to decipher spills, smells, smokes and sounds; how to make minor repairs using Lucille's easy instructions; and how to choose the right auto shop for you and your car.
