5 Things Every Woman Should Know,

.... About Cars! There are 5 things every woman should know about or how to do in their car:

  1. How to change a tire.
  2. Know how to read the gauges in your dash.
  3. Know how to check the oil and radiator fluid.
  4. Know how to jump the battery.
  5. Know how to change the wiper blades, all of them.

Okay out of all of them, I can do #'s 2, 3, 4, and 5. I've seen how to change the tire. But have not had to do it. I'm pretty sure that is what Husband's are for and road side assistance programs. In school, I worked at an auto parts store and was actually a parts manager. But that was because I had to work extra hard to prove myself to the men that worked and shopped there. So, I studied every book we had. I can, on most older GM trucks and cars, do brakes, replace a water pump, sparkplug wires, alternator, starter, and the thermostat w/gasket! Add all required fluids, and clean or replace the battery.

How many of you can do these things?

I'm good with ALL 5, and honestly after the past 3 years, I can change a tire in under 5 minutes (not counting the time it takes to empty out the trunk) ;). I can also change the oil and the battery!

Be yourself...... Everyone else is taken!

Well the tire thing... practice makes perfect, and when you have a person who has a "thing" for slashing your tires... well... you get good! LOL, we actually went to the junk yard and had 4 spares on rims already, that way I didn't wear out my doughnut everyday! 

Plus I'm stubborn. I don't like needing anyone to do anything for me. I should be able to be self sufficient. 

Be yourself...... Everyone else is taken!

Re: 5 Things Every Woman Should Know,

this ones often over looked, but to have your own personal tire gauge is very helpful.  the one on the air pump at the station is often inaccurate and could lead to under or over inflating of your tires.

yes - good one! and to actually know how to read it and what psi your tires should be at is or could be life or death. under inflated tires can lead to blow outs which could lead to auto accidents. too much air could do the same.

Re: 5 Things Every Woman Should Know,

I can put fluid in my radiator and windshield wiper fluid thingy...... and I'm going to learn how to change my own oil next time it needs changing... 

I can change my windshield wiper blades....

and....

that's about it.......... 

I know how to find someone else to do the other stuff...... 

I guess I'm just one of the people that have to actually be interested in what I'm learning or else it won't stick... because they've tried to teach me.... and it was in one ear and out the other.

Re: 5 Things Every Woman Should Know,

 I have done all except change a tire, but I have seen it done.  Once when we were first married I asked my hubby what happened to the tire jack in my car and his reply was "you are not strong enough to use it if u had to".  We have roadside assistance so hopefully I will never have to find out lol

 

 

Normal people worry me
