I find myself in this position more now that I have a 5 month old boy to cart around. I can't just disable my car for a few days waiting for a part to come in, not to mention my free time is basically zero. That being said I have learned to manage my time better and I schedule a few hours here and there to do the maintenance on my car as needed, whenever possible. When I have to go to an indy shop, I know the guys there and I often bring beer with my payment, so if I need a favor I'm sure they'd try to squeeze me in in an emergency.
