INTRODUCTION

Because of Lack of trust and lack of information our society lives IN fear.
- Educated (or not) people are complacent saying I don't know when it comes to caring for their vehicle.
- People die because of poor vehicle maintenance.
- Poor vehicle maintenance leads to more expensive repairs. Fact if you own a                                  vehicle you must have accountability to yourself and be responsible.
-  Because the "auto industry" is poorly perceived, millennial                                                                           (the "feel good" generation who care more about "cause than cost")                                                                do not consider the opportunity as a career choice.
- Girls who are showing interest are constantly getting                                                                                      "steered" away from the career option.                                                                                                                               
(Less than 4% are women mechanics) 

-  Auto shops struggle to provide service because first we have to be                                                         therapists and get through the driver's resistance,                                                                             apprehension and then acceptance.  
- It's hard for the auto shop to connect with defensive drivers   because they come in with tremendous barriers. CARmageddon.
With the continued traction of  Women Auto Know / Drivers Auto Know getting stronger we're aligning with auto shops, key partners and drivers to truly unite, earn respect and meet expectations.

What have we already found?

PPA LOCATOR
 

Person to Person Advisor / PPA Advisors are influencers and leaders in the auto industry and their community, committed to providing the best education and marketing tools to reach and connect with their local market, to sustain and grow their customer population while making our roads a safer place.

AUTO EASE

PPA delivers a 15 minute Auto E’s experience to drivers that cover 8 essential life skills for you and your car, from head to toe. We teach you everything you need to know about your car in the same way we would teach you about human anatomy. Do it once you forget it.  We know you won't regret it. As women, we are caretakers. And at WAK / DAK , we see our cars as babies. We love them, protect them, feed them, dress them up, bathe them and even name them!

 15 MINUTE EXPERIECE IMPROVES LIVES

You might even have to wait a little longer to buy that perfect car. There are quite a few advantages to this.

First, you get more time to save up a few extra bucks.

Second, more cars might become available that fit all of your criteria.

Third, you will be able to practice patience.

I don’t know about you, but that’s a big bonus for me. When I step back and have to take some time in my decision making, I usually find there are things I can and can not live without and things I will and can or can not compromise on. Taking a step back or getting a good night’s sleep can really give you some necessary perspective. Remember, this is a BIG decision. Unless you drop a few thousand for a pair of shoes, buying a car is probably one of the most expensive purchases you will make in several years. So take your time.

Steps for Car Shopping:

1.This is when you want to be a little flexible on your WANTs list.

2.Start by looking at budget and work backwards. In other words, don’t fall in love with the picture of that beautiful red sports car that’s overpriced.

3.Take a friend, wing-girl or lawyer to keep you grounded and realistic.

4.Take your monthly allowance or cash purchase price and search for cars that fit that bill.

5.If you exhaust that option and still don’t find what you want, tweak it.

6.Change the color, the year, the WANTs until you find a car that’s as close to your ideal but still within your budget.

If you absolutely must have everything on your WANTs list and realize the price is out of your range, consider negotiating. Some sellers will have more wiggle room than others.

Gone are the days when a big wrench and a couple of screwdrivers could fix anything. Automobiles have so many computer systems now that the main tool used to fix a car is often a diagnostic scanner. I know a lot of technicians who do not even get their hands dirty because their expert skill is being able to diagnose problems.

Just what can you do yourself?


If you open your hood and look closely you will see that there are a variety of things marked with words or symbols, telling you what they are. Those are the things you can probably take care of yourself. You can also look in your owner’s manual to find the items that the manufacturer feels are safe components for you to fix as well.

ESSENTIALS #1

You probably wouldn’t jump into a relationship a guy with at least asking a few questions. And you shouldn’t jump into a relationship with a car without asking a few questions either, especially since you just might be with your car longer than your guy!

Don’t be intimidated when you ask questions. Take a pushy friend, a mother-in-law or a lawyer with you if you feel nervous about peppering the seller with questions. Remember that YOU are the one paying for the car, YOU are the one driving the car and YOU have the right to walk away if you don’t like what you hear.

If the seller avoids your questions or isn’t able to answer them to your satisfaction, take that as a huge red flag. Let your wing girl or best friend step in. If you were on a date with a guy who was obviously full of crap, they would tell you to run and they should do the same with any seller that’s blowing smoke. Ultimately, they will be saving you from more than just one bad date.

How much?        How long?      Do I really need it?    and Why?

 

And yes ladies, we are talking about car repairs here…

 For starters, it’s important to understand what preventive maintenance is that scheduled maintenance is the new “tune-up” and the difference between SEVERE maintenance and NORMAL maintenance.

So, here’s what You AUTO Know!

NORMAL Maintenance: regular service for vehicles that are in a steady climate all year long and are driven mostly highway miles.

SEVERE Maintenance: cars that are in changing climates and that are driven in both stop and go traffic as well as highway miles.

Preventive Maintenance is the key to avoiding any major maintenance regardless of whether you are in steady state or changing climates, and regardless of your driving habits. Maintaining and servicing your car regularly PREVENTS major repairs later – thus the word Preventive, and that’s why it is SCHEDULED!

1 STOP SHOPPING  - GOOD OR BAD?

A girl’s gotta have what a girl’s gotta have. Am I right ladies? When it comes to shopping, that means usually making the rounds at several stores to find the perfect ensemble, shoes, accessories, whatever. The same rule goes for your car. Just because you like your shop and they do a good job, doesn’t necessarily mean they will have everything your car or cars need. For example, if you have an American car and a foreign car, the techs at your fave shop may not be specialists in foreign vehicle systems. And again, a girl’s gotta have what a girl’s gotta have. Only the best will do. So…

SHOP AROUND!

This doesn’t mean shop hop! It means that you should find a shop that specializes in your particular vehicle type. That way, you will be sure the mechanics and technicians will be experts on your car’s system. If you have more than one vehicle, you may have to find more than one shop to get the right type of service for your car.

Hop in, buckle up and let’s ride!

 

If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering how come it costs more to fill your tank than it does to get your roots done. I remember not so long ago when the sticker shock of $3.00 per gallon of regular unleaded was nothing compared to the price of a good apple martini.  But lately, I’m wondering how I can responsibly support both my commuting and consuming habits. Socializing closer to home is always an option. But a good nail tech, no matter how far away, is hard to replace.

 

The recent and ever increasing cost of gasoline affects every aspect of our lives, from choosing where we shop to deciding, not where, but if we are going on that much needed girls’ weekend.

 

The most common solution to this problem for me has been complaining. And I don’t mean just a little whining. I mean, straight up, in your face, oh my god – give me the number to OPEC- bitching! And although that makes me feel a heck of a lot better, it doesn’t improve my mileage.

 

There are, however, several commonly overlooked things that we, yes, all of us women, can do to increase our gas mileage. Some of the tips in this book you have heard before, and just haven’t done. Some will be new and you may not even have realized affect your mileage. But all of them are inexpensive, easy, and can be done right now.

 

So ladies, (and gentlemen, if cross-dressing is your thing) to avoid paying more AT the pumps than FOR your pumps…

You can also use a 50/50 mix of baking soda and water, but I wouldn’t recommend taking a swig of that. Remember, dirt acts as a conductor and drains battery power. Spend the extra few minutes keeping your battery clean and you can sidestep most major battery problems.

There are a couple of ways you can do this. One is to grab a Coca-Cola, some gloves, safety goggles and a wire brush. Put the shades and gloves on, take a sip of the Coke and then pour some on the corrosion. Remove the cables and brush the terminals to loosen any stubborn residue. All of the above steps are NECESSARY, except the swig of soda, that’s optional.

What YOU AUTO KNOW about your battery cables and connectors – As much as you might not want to, in order to properly maintain your vehicle, you do have to pop the top once in a while and check out your battery. This isn’t something you have to do every day, like working out, using face cream or updating your social media status, but it should be done twice a year around daylight savings time. Your battery works hardest during the summer and winter months. Rather than find yourself stranded on a snowy road or in blistering heat, take a few minutes in the fall and spring to check the battery.

Look for any blue- greenish or white looking residue on the terminals. That is battery acid corrosion and is a warning light signifying poor flow. The residue and corrosion need to be cleaned because they prevent the charge from reaching the battery.

Two of Jack’s soccer teammates are twins. Their names are Bill and Ron. They even have twin cars. Bill’s car is black and Ron’s is blue. Bill and Ron go to the same church as Jack and Julia.

They sit next to each other every Sunday.  Bill and Ron noticed a photo of Julia with her PPA on Facebook.

Lucky for them, because Bill’s check engine light                                                                       comes on. He gets it fixed the very next day.

Ron’s check engine light comes on.                                                                                               He keeps driving anyway.

Auto shops love customers like Ron. He had to spend $2,000 on an emergency repair. Bill, on the other hand? Just $200 for a preventive repair. This demonstrates the staggering difference between COI (Cost of Ignoring) and ROI (Return on Investment).


What the HELL is an MIL? 

Also known as the “Check Engine,” “Service Engine Soon” and “Why the ^#$!% won’t you turn off?!” light, the Malfunction Indicator Light is the most common (and most annoying) indicator light on your dashboard display. It also stands for mother-in-law, also common and annoying. But what is a Malfunction Indicator Light, you ask? Your car’s brain is a big computer, and just like your brain, computers send messages when they need attention.

A weird signal light on your cell phone can mean a download, and upload or an overload of information. A flashing message on your laptop can mean a virus or an instant message. In our tech savvy world we are bombarded by lights, signals and flashy things hundreds of times each day. They are so prevalent that we often don’t even realize they are there.

Your car signals you in the same way that your cell phone or computer does. It uses lights, sounds and flashy things to let you know it needs attention. Unfortunately, we are so numb to these indicators that many times we ignore them when we see them. Even though this might not be a major issue with your cell or laptop, it CAN be a major issue with your car.

What does that darned light mean?

The MIL is your car’s way of telling you it has a problem. Remember, your car is like a human body. When your body is sick, it sends off signals, like a rash or a fever. Your car does the same thing, using the MIL. The indicator lights you see on your dashboard are your car’s cries for help. They may be major cries, like all out whaling, screaming at the top of the lungs horror flick screams, or they might be wimpers, little pathetic “please take care of this” cries. Either way, they are there for a reason and should always be addressed, not taped over.  

 

Bill used to think every auto shop ripped people off. Ron even made fun of him, for going so soon. “Don’t you know the check engine light is a scam?” he said. “Nothing’s really wrong. They just want your money!” Bill used to feel the same way until he had a fifteen minute auto awareness experience. When he didn’t know, he was uncomfortable in auto shops. Now that he knows, he feels comfortable.

If you answered A or B, you are definitely not alone.                                                             Most of us ignore the MIL, especially if our car is                                                                   running fine or if we just got it checked out.                                                                               But we shouldn’t. If you answered C, you’re on the right track. If you answered D, you better have a lot of tape because taping over any problem will just make it bigger in the long run

THE LAW

Why does my car have an MIL?

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has required all cars in the United States to have an on-board diagnostics (OBD-II) system since 1996. The OBD is made up of a number of different sensors that act like the brain of the car, sending messages to the dashboard telling you what’s going on with your car’s body. These lights and indicators don’t actually DO anything to the car, they’re main job is to communicate with you!   That’s how your baby talks to you in the event that something might need to be done.

 

What do you do when you see your MIL?

A:  Ignore it

B:  Yell at it

C:   Go to the shop and talk to the mechanic

D:   Put tape over it

Taking care of your tires is an easy way to get the most mileage out of them. It’s also a pretty simple way to ensure reliability and avoid unnecessary problems down the road. You can check your tire pressure a few different ways:

 

01.Kick tire

02.Tilt your head slightly to the left, then the right, and see if one looks flatter than the other

03.Use a tire pressure gauge

 

Under-inflated tires are “soft” and can result in premature wear to the outside edges. Under-inflated tires also impact gas mileage and handling because they increase the resistance it takes to move the car. This can also lead to a blowout or a flat. And no lady likes being flat!

You should also rotate and balance your tires on a regular basis since each tire can wear differently based on its position on the vehicle and your vehicle type. The tire tread should be inspected for wear on a regular basis too.  Back in the day you could just grab a penny and let Honest Abe do the work for you, slide it into the tread head first. If you can see all of Abe’s head, it’s time to get new tread! These days, all you need to do to check tread is to look at the wear indicators, those little nubs, between the tire tread. If your tread has reached the nub, replace that tire.

All of these preventive maintenance tips are really simple to do. Find your local PPA and Take one of our fun 15 minute auto ease experiences and we’ll show you how!

UNDER-INFLATED tires can cause your engine to work harder, using more gas.

OVER-INFLATED tires can cause too much pressure, possibly resulting in a blowout.

NEVER FILLING tires means you have someone else doing that for you, and you probably shouldn’t even be reading this book. Give it to one of your more self-sufficient girlfriends.

Top TEN Things You AUTO Know About MILs…

1.MIL stands for Malfunction Indicator Light and is your car’s way of sending you messages about your car’s health.

2.Your car has MILs because the EPA requires them.

3.MILs don’t actually DO anything to your car, they just tell you that something might need to be done.

4.Ignoring, taping over, or yelling at your MILs are NOT the best way to handle them.

5.Sometimes an MIL is left on after your car has been repaired.

6.Most MIL codes can be found in your OMV.

7.The most common MIL is the Service Engine Light.

8.If you see MILs come on and go off when you start your car, they are doing their job.

9.Any MIL that stays on persistently should NEVER be ignored, unlike a persistent mother-in-law (MIL), she should ALWAYS be ignored.

10.MIL, OMV and EPA are NOT text acronyms, but very important terms YouAUTOKnow about your car.
