Yes its a manual that you buy separate from the car. It will tell you how to do just about any repair to your car step by step. And all you need after that is tools

Nice !! i sadly dont have any really good pictures of my car, i donno why i havent taken any lol...but my car WAS in good condition, i just happen to buy a "lemon" as my dad says lol ( he is a car fan too) so its just my luck to have my car do this lol. Grr, oh well, hopefully me and a few buddy's can fix it rather then bringin it to a shop... i dont trust anyone with my car anymore. If im not fixing and cant watch the person fixing it... its not getting done lol
