To start the diagnosis of a car on AutoMD.com, the individual is asked to enter the make and model of the vehicle in addition to the year and trim. The site then asks the user to describe how the car feels, smells, sounds or if he sees anything suspicious. If the person already believes he knows what's wrong with the car, such as an engine problem, he can also focus on that.

Once entering in more information about the vehicle, the website offers a list of potential problems, as well as information about these problems. For most problems, the site shows information about the issue and the average do-it-yourself price compared to the shop cost. There is also information about how difficult the issue is to fix.

If a person decides to attempt a repair at home, the site also offers a how-to guide. If the individual believes it is best to seek out a professional, AutoMD.com helps with that too. If presented with more than one issue and unsure what may be causing the issue, the site also offers a step-by-step guide to help diagnose between possible issues.
