How did you young guys start getting into taking apart and putting together cars? When I grew up we lived in a nice house in the suburbs where no one I knew had a car they worked on so I never knew anyone to impart any knowledge on me and and have pretty much lived my whole life not knowing crap about what makes a car run other than engine basics. Getting my head into vw engines a little lately with the bentley and my well taken care of by the last dude mk2 Jetta. I don't want to take it apart and screw anything up and don't have many tools to try. I should at least try and change my oil myself though. Would like to be able to change the timing belt myself too but it is daunting to get at. Lately it has been making louder belt noises when it first starts and I'm not really sure how to figure out where it is coming from (and again afraid of making it worse by even touching anything).
