Forums can help, but they often lack quality. You don't find many dealership mechanics on them anymore. However, you will find them on Just Answer because they're compensated for time and effort.

How to Repair Your Car
I often find myself reaching for the help that an auto repair manual can provide. It is not a sign of weakness! I’m not a walking memory bank. I find it necessary to consult the service manual for many things. For example torque specifications and bolt tightening patterns.
There is just no way to remember this kind of automotive information for hundreds of cars. Also instead of educated guessing at whats wrong with a vehicle I prefer to follow repair diagrams and diagnostic tree charts. This is the quickest way to fix an older car. The only thing that is different now as opposed to when I first got in the business is all this information is now available online. I put together a 3 minute video that shows you exactly how to repair your car with the latest online car repair manuals.
