I can change tires, and change the oil, and air filter. Also I had to change the thermostat once.

I can add washer fluid. A few months ago DH asked me to charge the battery and I was so proud of myself but I did it wrong. I had asked him a question about it, he didn't hear the whole things but answered and I got it wrong.

I love having an "older" car.

I can do my own oil change, tire rotation, brake job, change filters, etc.

I can put a battery charger on, I can also jump a car. I used to know how to do an oil change. My hubby is a mechanic so I don't have to worry about that stuff anymore. Heck he checks to make sure my tires are filled properly daily.

Yes, I can do battery changes, fuse changes, wiper blade changes, I can add fluids. I can diagnose some issues(thanks to dlh). Tires too.

I could change oil but I really have an ocd thing about my hands being dirty.

Nope. Hubs does it all.

 I can check the oil, add wiper fluid, change the wiper blades, and, in theory, change a tire. The one time I tried to do that myself (I was living at home at the time for college), the lugnuts were on waaay too tight and we had to have a neighbor help me (my dad was out of town).

I can do a lot.  I dated a guy once that was redoing a car so I helped him a lot with stuff.  More regularly, I can change oil, check and add fluids, change a tire, filters, fuses...  Lots of little stuff :)

I can add wiper fluid, that's about it.

I have to admit, not really. Hubby takes care of all the car needs.
