    Default Mechanics English-Spanish Dictionary?

    Anyone have a good link?

    My spanish is pretty good, but what hangs me up is on technical stuff. For instance today I had to translate all the things wrong with a vehicle into English. With a lot of searching I found what the things were, but even in English I am weak in this area.

    Tres,

    I am betting some shops in South Florida must have something of the such, opposite what you are looking, but you can figure that out. Call some of the service centers for the big dealers in South Florida and find out about it, I bet it exist.

    I have figured out what the parts are in English, but a book or some sort of notes would be nice for the next part that comes up.

    that has some good info on there webtrainer, thanks.

    One of the words that keeps coming up is tijeras (as in scissors) relating to something with the breaks. Another that comes up is the Timon something or other, which I later found out was the steering column.

    Make copious notes, Josh, write the book and sell it as an ebook...quizás?

    I can see tijeras being calipers, maybe. And timon makes sense, it's like tiller or rudder.
