An auto mechanic (automotive technician in most of North America, car

mechanic in British English and motor mechanic in Australian English) is a
mechanic with a variety of automobile makes or either in a specific area or in a
specific make of automobile. In repairing cars, their main role is to diagnose the
problem accurately and quickly.

They often have to quote prices for their customers before commencing work or after partial
disassembly for inspection. Their job may involve the repair of a specific part or the
replacement of one or more parts as assemblies.

Basic vehicle maintenance is a fundamental part of a mechanic's work in modern industrialized

countries while in others they are only consulted when a vehicle is already showing signs of
malfunction. Preventative maintenance is also a fundamental part of a mechanic's job, but this is
not possible in the case of vehicles that are not regularly maintained by a mechanic. One
misunderstood aspect of preventative maintenance is scheduled replacement of various parts,
which occurs before failure to avoid far more expensive damage. Because this means that parts
are replaced before any problem is observed, many vehicle owners will not understand why the
expense is necessary.
With the rapid advancement in technology, the mechanic's job has evolved from purely
mechanical, to include electronic technology. Because vehicles today possess complex computer
and electronic systems, mechanics need to have a broader base of knowledge than in the past.
Due to the increasingly labyrinthine nature of the technology that is now incorporated into
automobiles, most automobile dealerships and independent workshops now provide sophisticated
diagnostic computers to each technician, without which they would be unable to diagnose or
repair a vehicle. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auto_mechanic
