CarTreatments.com is a place where you will find helpful information on diagnostics and repair for your vehicle.
This site exists to provide you the info you need to either fix the problem yourself or arm you with knowledge so you can save money, avoid scams, and confidently articulate the symptoms you are experiencing, no matter where you take your vehicle for professional repairs.
In addition to covering common (and not so common) troubleshooting and repairs, be sure to check our helpful articles on recommended products, diagnostic trouble codes, and various tips on everything automobile related. CarTreatments.com started off as a hobby site but has expanded to so much more.
While we encourage all our readers to leave comments and questions on any article with the goal of helping solve their issue, we unfortunately can’t answer every question simply due to time constraints. Fortunately, many readers have a good amount of car knowledge themselves and on many occasions have replied to the original commenter.

Mark Stevens – Owner
Mark is a veteran auto technician who has honed his skills with over 19 years of service at Ford and Mazda as well as some independent work. He’s known for his attention to detail and problem-solving skills and enjoys coming up with out-of-the box solutions when the situation requires it.
Becoming an automobile technician just made sense after spending his childhood taking apart lawn mowers and other small engines just to see how they worked. Initially drawn to the repair aspect of the job, Mark has grown to embrace the challenge of diagnostic work.
When he’s not troubleshooting customers’ cars, you’ll most likely find him working on his current project (’96 Bronco) or cooking Italian food for his family.
