Do you know what to do when your engine light comes on? How do you know if you can trust the mechanic you take your car to? For every car owner, a little DIY knowledge can go a long way, especially if you’re living in a rural area miles from the nearest auto shop. We invite Native mechanics to share some of the basics you should know about your car. And if you’re interested in making a living as a mechanic, we’ll discuss what it takes to get going in the business and what to expect from the industry.
