Quiz: Are You Smart Enough To Be An Auto Mechanic?

Top Comment

I worked on cars and trucks for almost 30 years and some of the questions are flat out wrong. I only say this from experience. Sorry.

You are smart enough to be an auto mechanic!
You really know what makes a car drive like a dream. Great score!

I take issue with some of the questions. First one is transmission fluid turning brown from being overfilled, uh, if it's overfilled, I'll get that from the level, not the color. Dark oil normally results from wear of friction materials, the same gunk the filter is there to remove. I think the question is intentionally obtuse.

What is the most important part of the cooling system? All of it, take one hose clamp off and it will fail.

One of the questions is dead wrong. The timing belt should be replaced at the recommended intervals regardless of how it looks, but especially if it's showing "minor fraying" as the question states. In most engines that have a timing belt, if that belt fails, not only will it leave the customer stranded somewhere, it will result in severe engine damage when the valve train stops moving and the rest of the engine doesn't. Bent valves at a minimum, possibly a ruined cylinder head. To ignore the recommended replacement interval because the belt looks okay is irresponsible.

You are a novice auto mechanic.
You know a little about what's under the hood, but much of it is still a mystery.
