DIY and save on car fixes

By Charles Plueddeman of MSN Autos | Slide 1 of 6: Person Handing Money to Another Person

You want to save some money? Stop taking your car into the dealership for every little problem. Not all repairs need professional attention. Some are easy enough to do on your own.

If not, look online for a do-it-yourself video. Click through for five repairs that are easy to do — and by doing them yourself, you can also save a buck or two.
