Essential tools for your automobile

Written by Toolsmith Direct

It is almost impossible to maintaining your vehicle without having the right tools at hand. The time gains the right tools provide often outweigh their price. It’s no wonder, then, that most DIYers have a complete set of tools for their vehicles. If you’re just starting out, the sheer amount of options out there might confuse you. But if you start with the basics, you’ll get to that full tool chest in no time.

Metric Socket Set

A good socket set will get you places. If you often do maintenance work on your car, this set might prove to be crucial. A complete metric socket set will allow you to bolt / unbolt any mechanical part under the hood of your car effortlessly. The right tool is crucial when working on something as sensitive as a vehicle. The right tool will make sure that you do not exert excessive pressure on nuts and bolts. This will prevent them from twisting and, thus, weakening the links.

Grease Gun

It’s no hazard that car engines are covered in grease. Grease prevents metal parts from rusting by shielding them against water and excessive air. So, it only makes sense to have a grease gun handy when working on your car. Any DIYer would know that it’s only a matter of time before you encounter one stuck, rusty nut / bolt. A grease gun will not only lubricate those joints, but will also allow you to effortlessly access those hard to reach areas.
