Is fixing your own car even fun? It sounds stressful desu.

Is fixing your own car even fun? It sounds stressful tbh. Wouldn't you rather be doing something that's actual entertainment, like watching TV, playing vidya, or playing sports?

      Working on a car is fun as long as you're not relying on it to survive. Unless it's pulling the starter out of a 2nd gen RWD 4Runner.

      This, sort of. Depends if you’re mechanically inclined as well. I like pulling shit apart and seeing how it works, but then there are days where I’m home from a 10-12 hour day at work and a friend or family member says their car started running like shit on the way home from work and they check engine light is flashing, so I have to load up a bunch of tools and run over there and pull it apart in a parking lot before Advance Auto closes because I’m not about to let them pay $800 for a fuel injector at the dealer.

    You usually get a sense of accomplishment and either the reassurance that the job was well done or the nagging suspicion that you turned something into a waiting disaster.

    I think preventive or restoration-type stuff can be fun, but fixing a car because it broke sucks. Over all I prefer did-it-myself to do-it-myself but you can't have the first without the latter.

          ftfy. nothing wrong with that, but don't act like people who are averse to tools, like the average upper middle class rando that just wants a decent car to putter around in, are the same as most enthusiasts

    No it's fricking miserable but it saves so much money its worth it. Recently had a violent death rattle in my car. Found the source of the noise by jacking car up and shaking everything. Ordered aftermarket swaybar links for 55 dollars a pair. Installed them over like 30 minutes. This is like $200+ in my country.

    I don't trust mechanics to not try and frick me.
    Once, never again.
    Also, my time is cheaper than $125/hr

      >I don't trust mechanics
      This. Not because they might want to frick me over, but because they might neglect or forgot something, or might be plain incompetent. Even the best ones I know had their frick ups with my shit.
      >my time
      Also some jobs take time comparable to what I spend on going to the mechanic with the added advantage of being able to do them when I want not when the mechanic has a time slot available.

    Depends what you do. Simple tasks like putting in new coils is easy, replacing spark plugs is a little bit more complicated. But any fixing that's harder to get to I leave it up to the mechanic to do it.

    >Is fixing your own car even fun?
    Yes, but then again I always have a 2nd "newish" car that needs less attention. So here is how I work it, I have a main car for spring, summer, fall. Then in the winter I use a beater to get rusted out from the salt on the roads. The beater also transports big items. I had a Ford Ranger and then a Dodge Grand Caravan with stow n go seats into the floor. Each one I could easily swap parts, fix up on the cheap, run only in the winter or when I needed lumber, wood chips or other heavy bulk items.
    If my main car fails, again no biggy I can fix that while driving around the bulk carry beater.

    If it’s easy stuff like oil changes, filters, or brake pads then I don’t mind that.

    Sometimes. If it’s a simple oil change, plugs, preventative stuff like that, or giving it a good cleaning, then it’s relaxing. Throw some tunes on, take your time and chill. If it’s an emergency fix, no, it’s suffering.
    It’s also nice to just work on something mechanical with your hands like an actual man and not laze about on your phone or watching the electric israelite box like a fat manchild Redditor.

    >It sounds stressful
    It kind of is stressful the first couple of times. Can you position the car correctly e.g. if you need to get under it? Do you actually know what needs to be done in order to complete your work? Is it okay if the car just sits there unused?
    Because if you answer "No" to any of those, then I wouldn't even start. Especially with the first one, being able to safely position the car. Those frickers are heavy, and if you can't easily reach what you need to work on, then you're going to have a bad time no matter how skilled you are.

    It kind of sucks but I hate the vampires at the service counter more. At a certain point I'm just doing it out of pride and sunk cost fallacy rather than because it really makes sense from a resource perspective.
