What Makes a Good Mechanic?

Have you ever heard someone say, “I can’t define it, but I know it when I see it?” The concept is simple but powerful. When asked to describe the taste of salt, you might use words like bitter or acidic or sharp, and all of those would be right and they would also be wrong. Other things have the opposite problem: everyone agrees on what something is but might disagree on what best lives [...]

Back to Basics: Learning About The Fuel System

Do you recall the scene in A Christmas Story when Ralphie, (our childhood protagonist, now turned into a reflecting adult), reminisces about his father’s tires? “My old man’s spare tires were only tires in the academic sense.

Don’t Text and Drive

Last year, Utah passed a law cracking down on texting and driving, and it’s no wonder.  Most crashes occur within a short five second window after a driver is distracted — about the length of a football field if you are driving 55 mph — and you take your eyes off the road for about five seconds when you look down at your phone to read a text.  The law prohibits using a phone [...]
