Drive belts or serpentine belts need to be adjusted or replaced when the car starts to make a odd noise when you start it up.

2. REPLACE YOUR BATTERY

A battery replacement is another easy truck repair you can do without a mechanic.

3. REPLACE YOUR BRAKE PADS

Some truck repairs require more procedures. Replacing brake pads is one of them because you have to jack up the truck and remove the tires.
