Here is the most comprehensive, extensive and illustrated auto mechanic tools list ever in the Internet.
You will find three different groups of tools, from Basic tools, the ones you need to start doing any jobs in your car, passing by Intermediate tools, more specific sets of tools that will allow you to jump into more complex repairs, to Advanced tools, the ones the Professionals use for very specific cases and situations.
For the DIY home mechanic, car enthusiast or aspiring professional mechanic, what's in this list is everything you will ever need to do 99.9% of jobs in any car or truck.
You will see that we speak about 3 aspects.
- 1. Functionality. As how many things does the tool enable you to do. The more gears you see, the more stuff you can do with it.
- 2. Use: Some tools, as the hammer, are a no-brainer. Some others like a bearing adapter kit, are more complex to use. Green monkey means easy, red monkey means hard 😀
