Here at AutoCornerd, we adhere to strict editorial standards to ensure every piece of content we publish provides readers with accurate, up-to-date automotive advice.
Autocornerd founder, Asjad, leads a meticulous process focused on research, expert review, and reader-focused presentation. Here is an inside look at how we produce each article or guide:
1. In-Depth Topic Research
The research process starts with Asjad leveraging his decade of mechanical experience to define the scope and outline. He determines what readers need to know to execute repairs or modifications safely and effectively.
Next, intensive research begins using authoritative resources including:
- Auto manufacturer service manuals: Contain detailed specifications and procedures straight from the source.
- Aftermarket shop manuals: Provide additional technical specifics not found in standard manuals.
- Automotive databases: Allow access to diagrams, torque specs, fluid capacities and more.
- Industry publications: Useful for staying current on the latest technologies and repair standards.
Asjad also consults fellow master technicians through online forums and in-person meetups. Their real-world expertise helps identify gaps or inaccuracies in published information.
2. Detailed Topic Outline
With research complete, Asjad synthesizes the information into a comprehensive article outline. This includes:
- Logical flow covering background, step-by-step instructions, and summary.
- Insertion of relevant charts, graphs, or images to aid comprehension.
- Consideration of reader needs to ensure content is engaging yet accessible.
- Incorporation of tips and warnings based on his mechanical experience.
3. Initial Article Draft
Using the outline as a guide, Asjad writes a complete draft articulating technical details in straightforward language. He adheres to principles of good instructional writing:
- Easy to understand vocabulary and sentence structure
- Breaking complex procedures into bite-sized sequential steps
- Use of analogies and examples to explain technical concepts
- Liberal use of headers, bullet points, and formatting for scanability
The goal is informative yet conversational tone that keeps readers engaged.
4. Peer Review and Fact Checking
The draft is handed off to a senior automotive technician well-versed in the topic. They thoroughly verify the accuracy of all technical details against multiple authoritative sources.
Proofreading identifies any unclear passages or gaps in information. Reviewer feedback helps Asjad refine the draft to ensure reader comprehension.
5. Hands-On Validation
Next, Asjad tests any repair procedures or modifications on project vehicles to confirm feasibility. Performing the steps himself uncovers any missing setup instructions, tools needed, safety concerns, or steps that require clarification. The article is updated to incorporate these learnings for improved reader guidance.
