Despite the many advances women have made since the internal combustion engine was invented, there is still one widely held belief that won’t seem to go away: that when it comes to cars, women should just leave it to the men. In Essential Car Care for Women, ESPN NASCAR pit reporter Jamie Little and Discovery Channel “Turbo Expert” Danielle McCormick team up to dispel this myth once and for all—and to offer the indispensable, hard-won advice women need to buy, sell, and care for their cars with confidence. With this handy guide, women will learn how to save themselves money by performing basic—but essential—maintenance tasks on their own. Little and McCormick explain what an alternator, regulator, distributor, and timing belt are; how to change a tire, recharge a flat battery, check the oil, and assess tire pressure; what to do when a car breaks down or when an accident occurs; how to buy a car without being taken advantage of; and more. Straightforward and easy to follow—and including simple step-by-step diagrams and pictures to help along the way—Essential Car Care for Women is the ultimate handbook to everything a woman should know about her set of wheels.

For more than twenty years I have been involved in the automotive world and during that time I have met hundreds, if not thousands, of people. The majority of these people were not tech savvy, at least not about an automobile, and that's okay because none of us can know everything about everything. Even though they did not understand all the intricacies of how their vehicle operated, they still wanted someone to explain things to them in such a way that they could at least get a basic understanding. That, my friends, is the purpose of this book. It won't teach you to repair your own car, but it will certainly help you to better communicate with those servicing your vehicle as well as help you understand how the different systems operate.
