Learn how to tune-up your car!

30


30 per session

Get an oil change and your car will be good for 3000 miles, learn how to change your oil and it will run forever! Okay, not really but the point is learning how to maintain your car will not only make sure it will run well but it will save you tons of money!

Does your car need an oil change? Sparkplugs and wires need replacing? Have a check engine light? Brakes need to be replaced? Have questions on what / how to check something? Need advice?

I've been tinkering with cars for over 10 years and have saved thousands! I enjoy teaching others about car maintenance. If you need to work done, bring your car over and I'll take a look -- I have most hand tools needed to get the job done. I am not going to do the job for you but may be there to guide you or lend a hand. The purpose of this service to teach and learn hands on -- not to use simbi for me to dirty myself to do an oil change for you.

Training & Qualifications


Car enthusiast who has bought/sold many cars the past 10+ years. I consider myself a "backyard mechanic." I do most of my repairs (except those requiring special equipment). I have helped many family members and friends with mechanical work.

I've done anything from oil changes, replacing brakes, suspension, clutches, timing belts, install alarms, replacing differentials, swapping engines, etc.

Availability & Preferences


Weekdays after 5pm, Saturday and Sunday mornings, or by appointment.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

Solomon was great! I knew nothing about cars going in but now I feel like I finally have some basic knowledge to use to start being on top of my car m...aintenance. Considering how difficult I have found it to get educated on car maintenance, this is an absolute lifesaver. Solomon was also super friendly, patient, and helpful throughout it all. I definitely recommend his service to anyone in my shoes who knows very little and wants to learn!show more

Today I had my second session of learning to tune up my car from Solomon. He taught me how to change a tire (I feel so accomplished!) and he helped me... attatch my new windshield wipers. I definitely recommend coming to Solomon for any auto information or dietary counseling.. Thanks again Solomon! show more

I had a wonderful experience learning how to tune up my car from Solomon! We met in-person and he taught me loads of valuable information about my car... and what is required for maintenance. He is a great communicator, reliable, and very thorough. He is also a very knowledgeable person and a great teacher. I would highly recommend his services. Thanks Solomon! show more

About Solomon Young

I am a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) currently working in home health and acute care w/ knowledge and experience providing nutrition education to patients, students, and other health care pr...ofessionals. My focus is using evidenced-based science -- not some sort of trend or made up BS. I'm not going to promote liquid fasts, detoxing, going paleo or "gluten-free" (unless you are diagnosed by a physician to have celiacs disease or sensitivity), "carbs are evil" approach. Weight loss and health is something that has to be sustainable and maintained throughout life -- can you survive on shots of apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper w/ lemon juice cocktails, and coffee enemas for the rest of your life? I don't think so ;) I have experience providing nutrition education on different diseases including but not limited to diabetes, heart failure, high blood pressure, kidney disease (pre-dialysis and during dialysis), celiacs, diverticulitis, diverticulosis, ulcerative colitis, bariatric surgery, etc. I work daily to optimize nutrition for those who have lost weight (elderly people with poor nutrition intake, after surgery, or patients with cancer) or provide education on how to optimize and manage your health. My hobbies include exercise (weight lifting, calistenchics, and running), working on cars, and traveling. I set a goal to do 1 event each year so physical fitness as part of a healthy lifestyle is important to me. This year I will be doing my 1st marathon in Honolulu -- I hate running but know it is a good workout for the heart! Past events have included Tough Mudder, Spartan Beast, SF Urbanathlon, SF Rock n roll 1/2 marathon, and several 5K runs. show more
