I had to learn how a car worked mechanically pretty young because my early driving years were spent living with my mom whom couldn't afford to fix my car(s). When money is scarce you learn how to shade-tree a car in order to keep yourself employed. Gradually I was able to work up from cars that needed continual attention to more reliable used cars to finally buying new cars that I could trust. Mostly...

Even as I progressed from auto to aviation maintenance I always do as much work on my car as possible, short of warranty-related tasks. It's very rewarding imho to be able to dig into a new vehicle without having to pay someone and not be afraid of having to find another way to work the next day.

We all start somewhere, and never be afraid to ask for help (physically or mentally). Ensure you pay attention and learn from every new experience
