Who is LaymanAutos?

Hello there, I’m Alex, the sole mechanic, writer, and editor behind LaymanAutos.com.

I started LaymanAutos with a simple mission: to make the complex world of automotive troubleshooting and maintenance easy for everyone. I know how confusing and intimidating it can be when your car starts making strange noises or when a warning light pops up on your dashboard. That’s why I’m here, to break it down for you in the simplest terms.

My Journey into the Automotive World

My love for cars started when I was a teenager. I was fascinated by the intricate systems that made a car run and the satisfaction of solving a complex problem was exhilarating. Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about cars, from the basics of maintenance to the intricacies of troubleshooting.

Now, I want to share my knowledge and passion with you. I want to help you understand your car better, to help you solve common car problems, and to guide you in maintaining your car to ensure its longevity. I cover a wide range of topics, from how to change your oil to why your car might smell like farts (yes, it happens!).
