Aside from its main function of filling up the tires with air, an air compressor can also give power to pneumatic tools.

Portable ones usually cost $100 to $200 for the compressor alone. In some cases, buying these air tools come with 12-volt battery pack that will come handy for jump starting a car.

Other useful tools in auto repairs are the following:

Torque wrench for the nuts and bolts, a mechanic’s tool set, shop light, a work bench with a vise, a first aid kit, a fire extinguisher, and Personal Protective Equipment. These tools are important as it can help auto repairers continue and finish all the work needed in auto repair.
