Handy Skills: (Very) Basic Car Maintenance

I'm that guy who didn't get his license until his mid-20s and thus, never owned a car before, so I didn't really learn any of this stuff when everyone else did.


By basic car maintenance, I mean checking for blown fuses, replacing light bulbs, replacing batteries, checking the oil, checking tire pressure, etc... Things that are easy to do yourself without the need for overly-specialist tools and without having to fork out extra money at the mechanic.

A lot of this came in handy when, in the space of a few days, both low-beam headlights blew, the front left tire went flat and the battery (on the car we were using until we replaced the headlights on our primary car) went flat.

When it rains, it pours...
