Owning your own car can be a wonderful experience. Whenever the mood strikes, you simply hop in, and go wherever suits. Cars represent freedom and spontaneity; they provide single folk and families alike the means to do what has to be done, go wherever needs visiting, and return back home again, all relatively simply and safely. Cars provide opportunity, they save time except when the thing breaks down, and you have to go looking for car parts.

Apparently, finding car parts is not all that difficult if you know what youre doing. Unfortunately, many of us dont. We know that we should probably go back to the dealership where we bought the thing, but we have no clue what wed ask for. The thing broke on my car, wed say, and to avoid enormous amounts of confusion, or simply being laughed out of the place, we stay at home, or take the bus.

Looking at a cars innards is enough to send most of us to sleep, or make the more sensitive among us wonder who on earth lets us out in such a contraption anyway. And while theres no question that a cars engine is no place for the mechanical novice to set loose, theres little doubt that its not as scary as it looks.

Just because you drive it every day, it doesnt mean you have to have an intricate knowledge of the various parts that make up your car. You probably use a computer too, and wouldnt know a motherboard from a processor. But thats okay you have a multitude of other skills that many a mechanic would give his right arm for. Maybe youre the worlds best cook, or can knit faster than anyone youve ever met. It doesnt matter car parts simply arent your forte.

So when your car breaks down, dont worry about appearing dim your car is a convenience, and youre not supposed to understand all its foibles. When you go to the garage or dealership for repairs or to purchase replacement parts, simply be as precise as you can about what happened. Take a look inside by all means, and try to find a visual cue that might help your mechanic understand what you are looking for.

But dont worry about your lack of car part knowledge. Ask your mechanic to pick a pair of knitting needles, and well see who knows what.
