Before getting into the car fixing details, let’s take a quick look at a very simple tool that will help you keep your vehicle clean. This electric high-pressure water spray gun will have your car looking spotless in minutes — and you won’t even have to stop by a car wash. Super compact and easily fitting into your tool box, the spray gun features an adjustable nozzle and is capable of producing different water jets — depending on the intensity and the water flow you are looking for.
When you are not using the spray gun for washing your car, it comes in perfectly handy in a number of household situations. You can use it to water the plants in your garden, cleaning the garage, the outside of your house and more.
A tire pressure gauge is an indispensable tool to have in a vehicle. All tires are rated for specific loads at certain levels of pressure — so it is very important to keep the tire pressure of your vehicle at the optimal amount. Taking up the practice of measuring tire pressure regularly is a very good habit to develop — start by making sure you have the pressure gauge in your car at all times.
This particular model is very handy: it’s portable, comes with a nice sporty look and is made of solid ABS material. You have a handy LED display for reading the results, and there is a LED light at the nozzle making sure you can see what’s on the screen in any lighting conditions. So, you have yourself a nice-looking tool that is easy to use and does not take much space. And it’s your first step in fixing easy car tire troubles – and embarking on the road to becoming your own mechanic.
Another absolute must-have item in your car is your good old tool kit. This wrench hand tool kit comes with 12 pieces including 10 differently-sized sockets: 8mm, 9mm, 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, 13mm, 14mm, 17mm, 19mm, and 21mm. All the tools in the kit are made from chromium vanadium steel material with high hardness (up to 60HRC) and strong durability. Plus, thanks to the bright plating coating, the equipment is not easy to wear and is well-protected against rust and other forms of damage.
The wrench is very convenient to use as well — it comes with an ergonomic handle ensuring a comfortable grip.
More items for your handy tool box here. This multifunctional foldable tool kit comes with a rather interesting design making it incredibly compact and simply meant to fit into limited spaces. In the kit, you get a gradienter, a flashlight, a tape measure, slotted screwdrivers and cross screwdrivers, and a number of other useful accessories.
The screwdrivers are pretty self-explanatory tools — and very multifunctional as well. You can also use them way outside the scope of vehicle fixing — home appliances, DIY projects and more. The portable flashlight is convenient for emergency lighting and makes sure you spot what’s wrong with your vehicle in poor lighting conditions. The mini gradienter and tape make sure you have the correct measurements at all times.
The Konnwei KW680 CAN OBD2 is definitely part of the best car diagnostic tools list coming with a variety of useful features.
It can help you check the health status of your vehicle's engine and make sure it meets the national emission monitoring standards through red-yellow-green LED indicators — with just one click.
The reader’s testing capabilities are extensive: it supports oxygen sensitivity test, on-board monitor test, and carbon tank leak test (EVAP test).
Using the tool is easy and convenient: the built-in speaker and the large LCD screen (320 x 240 pixel) work as very effective audio and visual indicators. The water-resistant and dust-resistant shell makes this scanner strong and sturdy — plus, there are multiple system languages for you to select.
So, there you have it. Five small and simple gadgets that can make all the difference. Still don’t see what you’ve been looking for? Check out more car gadgets here.
