Are cars your life's work? Do you enjoy taking engines apart and putting them back together again? Do you know the parts of a car like the back of your hand? Take this quiz to find out how much you know about cars.
Did you know that a car has about 30,000 parts, and a large car engine accounts for about half of those parts? However, in the standard car engine, there are only a couple hundred parts. Regardless of the thousands of parts in each car on the road, someone has to fix them when something goes wrong.
Mechanics are often what we may refer to as "general practitioners." Like their medical counterparts (yes, we're comparing mechanics to doctors - mechanics are, after all, the physicians of the car world, right?), mechanics may be generalists or specialists. Again, although many mechanics pride themselves on being able to work on the varying systems of cars, some mechanics work only on specific systems. Becoming a certified auto mechanic does take some training, and some mechanics are required to continuously update their knowledge by taking classes or continuing education courses.
If you think you've got what it takes to pass this general mechanics quiz, let's get started!
