Tools You Need - Introduction

In this section we have listed the requirements to have a minimum in-expensive setup for your home ‘garage’. First thing is a location or a flat (preferably shady ) level area  to park your car. For those with garages and decent drive- ways this not a problem. For those  living in apartments, most of the time it is ok to do minor DIY repair and maintenance in the parking lot itself.

Optional Tools for Repairs

Here is a list of Optional Tools for Repairs if you want to get a bit serious with maintaining cars :

Battery Charger: - Something to charge your battery, if it gets discharged or if it nears end of life.

Basic Home Garage Tools

Mechanics Tool Set or Socket set: - I highly recommend getting the 154 pc or 200 pc Craftsman Mechanics tool.  Sears, Kmart have specials on these tools. Costco also carries a selection of Craftsman tools. The good thing about Craftsman tools is that it carries a lifetime warranty, which means, if a wrench goes bad, just take to any Sears store across the nation and they will replace it –no receipt required, and no questions asked.
