Maintenance Tips, Tricks And Hacks For Your Vehicle

Igor Iwanowski’s Biography Page


My name is Igor Iwanowski. I am the owner and content creator of I am a certified Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) mechanic and a car detailer for 10 years. Over the years, I’ve gathered a lot of knowledge about cars, how they work, and how to repair them and I am writing about that on my blog

I have only one goal, but it is a noble one. Many people just don’t have enough money to maintain their cars because some repairs can be quite expensive. However, I will provide step-by-step guides on how to fix the most common problems that cars have these days.

I have a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe and a 2005 VW Touran in my backyard. The reason why I am better than others is that I have two actual cars that I recreate and photo document the fixing process. By following my articles, you will be able to fix your vehicles without spending a lot of money in the repair shops.

I graduated from economics school. But, my dream was to fix cars. Even before I graduated, I used to go to the local repair shop and just watch them fix things. I guess there is something in ‘fixing’ that really completes my soul.

Right after graduation, I went into the same repair shop where I used to hang out and asked for a job. They accepted me and boy oh boy, was I happy. I picked up things very fast and after two years of hard work, I was trusted to fix vehicles on my own, without having a senior mechanic around me. Soon enough, there were people coming to the shop and specifically asking for me to fix their cars.
