change your own oil / fix your car

10 simbi per unit - Virtual OK

I can help you to learn to perform regular basic maintenance on your automobile, such as changing your oil; or to help you learn to perform repairs, such as installing a new battery, changing belts, alternator replacement, brake pads/shoes, rotors/drums. Some of these activities may be done online/chat/phone, with appropriate communication and photo exchange. For example, I may be able to give some advice/consultation about diagnostics, etc, or offer some sort of guidance or interactive tutorial as you examine or work on your vehicle. I've been able to help a lot of friends save a lot of money with a little guidance or pointing-in-the-right-direction, or reality-checking on repairs estimates.
Others may require on-site assistance, with distance/location negotiable.
NOTE: virtual/remote assistance, in many/most cases will require the purchase of tools or equipment to complete the job safely and/or effectively.

Training & Qualifications


I have been working on my own automobiles since I began driving. (20+ years experience), including replacing engines and transmissions while still in high school. Among various other current occupations, I work on heavy-duty farm equipment, in addition to occasional car repairs for hire.

Availability & Preferences


My schedule varies widely, but is fairly self-determined and flexible to a large extent. I stay pretty well digitally-connected and I am often available in a pinch, including unusual/after-hours endeavors.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I love this concept. I have always been fond of the bartering system and have often traded favors or skills with others. I am a major proponent of independent and off-grid economics.

About Chuck Springborn

I have a BA in Psychology, with a Philosophy minor. In addition to writing all sorts of essay assignments for myself, with minimal time input or on tight time constraints, I have helped various famil...y members, friends and acquaintances to tuneup their compositions, study for exams, complete research projects and more. My work experience is broad and varied. I grew up on a farm, so I learned to build and repair things early in life. I've always been helping people with something. I perform a wide variety of repairs, including household, automobile, commercial and agricultural equipment. I played first chair trumpet in high school band and I have experience with playing drums and studio engineering (both self-taught) since about 1995. In addition, I conceived, constructed, booked, engineered, mixed and supervised a small weekend camp-out music festival for a few years. I have experience as a shop manager at an auto customization shop where I was responsible to oversee and perform installations of audio and electronic equipment and custom accessories: stereos, amplifiers, speaker systems, hid lighting, remote start and security systems. I have performed nearly every sort of repair and many types of remodeling project that can be done to one's home: electrical, plumbing, sinks, showers, roofing, doors, windows, siding, flooring, ceramic tile, constructing rooms, drywall, building sheds, etc. I generally enjoy a challenge and have a hard time giving up on any endeavor. show more
