What is a Mechanic?

Profession - MechanicWhen a person's car breaks down, they need to get it fixed. To do that they need to take it to someone who knows all about cars. That person is a mechanic.

An auto mechanic is a person who repairs cars for a living. While a mechanic does not need a college degree, he does have to know an awful lot about cars. When someone brings in a broken car, it is the mechanic's job to find and fix the problem. A mechanic's job is messy. Cars have grease and oil all over them. Mechanics must work underneath a car. They must dig deep within a car's parts to fix problems.

An auto mechanic also works to keep a car healthy. He may give the car an oil change or a tune up to keep it running smoothly. He will also check the car's fluids to makes sure it has enough. Some mechanics also repair scratches in the paint to keep rust from forming on the body of the car.

You will find an auto mechanic working in a few different places. Some mechanics work at businesses that fix cars. These businesses are called body shops. Other mechanics work at car dealerships. There they fix cars that people bring in. They also make sure the cars for sale are all running smoothly. Some mechanics also work at companies that use cars and trucks all day. For example, a mechanic may work for a bus company or a taxi company. They are also found at factories that make cars.
