How handy are you around your car?  Can you change a tire?   Jump a battery?   Check your tire pressure?  Change your own oil?

Well I was in my neijbor boys garage at the age of 14/15.. I am quite handy under the hood  =)..

Can you ladies lift your hood ?

I have had cars ( many many cars ) and I have had the hardest time lifting the lid on a few !

I can change a tire, put in and check oil, trans fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, washer fluid.. I have helped hang doors, hoods, bumpers, tail gates.. I have bled many brakes.. and on and on...

Tracy to check the oil you pull out the dip stick and wipe it off- put it back in and pull it out again and look at it. No oil on there - you need oil =).. 

Shelly when you change the oil you take off the plug under the car- and the old oil pours into a pan placed under the car- then you plug the hole back up and you add new oil at the top of the engine and you change the filter.. Really not a 'dirty' job =)..

I actually need to get back in the shop and brush up on my parts- racing season is starting soon !

I can pop the hood on my Nissan.   My police car is near impossible.   The last time I needed to do it 4 different people tried before we got it open.

I can also add washer fluid into all the cars I have ever driven.

So Renee can get under a hood, wants to know if us ladies can lift our hoods.  Gave explicit directions to Tracy on how to check her oil with a dip stick - take it out - wipe it off - put it back in - take it back out -oh no - no - no I am NOT going to comment.

Nothing like a well oiled machine under the hood.
