Yes! Absolutely. I don't do car repair, but I got through my first real auto repair DIY via YouTube. My nephew is a mechanic, and when my 'check engine' light came on, he plugged in a doohickey to my van and told me what module to replace. 4 screws to remove, be sure to get the spark plug wires back on in the right order, and you're done. Cost me only $60. Brilliant!
Problem is, he didn't know about the hidden screw on the bottom of the power steering reservoir. When I Googled that, I was pointed to a YouTube video on how to change the reservoir and fluid to eliminate that horrid whining noise that Chrysler products develop when the filter screen is clogged. Well, hell--I already had the reservoir off to change the module. $35 more at AutoZone and I was feeling pretty damn manly.
