If the family car breaks down, most kids know that the car will end up with a mechanic. Many times, the car comes back as good as new. What did the mechanic do? It might seem like magic, but it's really skill and education. This book explains how mechanics can detect problems with our vehicles using modern technology and know-how and how they may solve the problems with hard work and skill. Photographs of mechanics on the job will allow a variety of students to imagine themselves in this important role.
