My passion for working on cars started when I was 15 years old. Back then I used to fix my family’s 1984 Subaru sedan. My love for fixing things led me to enroll in an automotive school that focused on learning the principles of how cars work.

After graduating high school, I attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, where I received a BS and MS degree in engineering.

Rushit Hila at SEMAI worked as an engineer for the public and private sectors for over ten years. In 2016 I decided to start YOUCANIC and follow my passion for cars and helping others.

For the past few years, I have taught auto repair online and published hundreds of how-to tutorials. I stay up-to-date with the auto repair industry by attending online training and automotive events such as SEMA and AAPEX.

I am a Professional Engineer, and ASE G1 certified in light automotive repair and diagnostics.

When vehicle owners have car problems, they often turn to the owner’s manual, which isn’t that much help in many cases. The owner’s manual often states:  Take the vehicle to the nearest dealer for service.” My goal is that when your vehicle has a problem or malfunction, YOUCANIC will be able to help you figure it out.

Before you give up on your car (and your skills), look at our tutorials and check out the YOUCANIC full system scanner to learn how to diagnose and maintain any vehicle yourself.  There is no better feeling than being able to fix a problem yourself and saving a lot of $$$$$ in the process.
