Re: Online Training Courses for Car Repair
Learning online is a bit of a contradiction as working with cars is just that - hands on.
If you want to do specific things like engine work, pick up a couple of old lawnmowers, tear the engines down and rebuild them. If they run, then you know you can handle at least moderate automotive tasks.
Tools is the other problem. Most automotive work will require pneumatic tools, and various pullers, wrenches, a press, and so on to do things properly while being efficient.
YouTube is a great source, although some people on there aren't too well versed in the proper way to do something. There may be more than one way to do something 'properly', so be cautious. Eric the car guy, has a good thread with some how-to videos.
Another thing to do if you have the appropriate space and funds, is to purchase an old beater car for next to nothing (plus towing fees) and work on that at home. For instance, Cavaliers are a dime a dozen and fairly simple, from a mechanical standpoint. Imports have differences as well that you'll need to get familiar with.
