It sounds like you want to do an exact string match, and not a text 
match, so I don't think there's anything complex you'd need to do... 
just store the field with "car repair" as type="string" and do all of 
the literal searches you want.

But if you are working off a field that contains something beyond the 
exact match of what you want to search for, you'll just need to define a 
new field type and use only the analysis filters that you need, and 
you'll have to think more about what you need if that's the case.
