when you’ve got
■ When it comes to auto service, the experience
is either great or it isn’t. More than likely, it
isn’t. Repairs, oil changes, tire rotations, it’s
all run of the mill stuff to keep your car
standing on all four of its tires.
■ The expenses are bad, but it also eats up
valuable time from your day. Overall, unless
you visit an auto service center like Toyota of
Orlando’s, auto service is a real bummer.
■ But, have you ever tried taking care of some

your tires reinflated so you can get back on
the road without having to visit a gas
3) Short Screwdriver
■ When you’re working in tight spaces in your car’s engine compartment, things can
get a little difficult to reach, even with longer tools.
■ To help you get to the tight spots in your Orlando Toyota during your DIY car care job,
use a short or “stubby” screwdriver.
4) Jack Stand
■ If you plan on working on anything in the
undercarriage of your Orlando Toyota car,
you’re going to need a jack stand.
■ This is should be an essential part of your
car care kit and you should always have
one hand in your trunk in the event that
you need to install a spare tire.
5) Socket Wrench Extensions
■ Nearly everything that screws into parts of your car’s parts can be unscrewed and
rescrewed using a socket wrench. However, you’ll likely need extensions and
different extensions to help with the length and angle of your tool.
