Most of my male relatives know a lot about cars, I on the other hand (I’m 22) know almost nothing despite driving one for 4 years. I know the elementary things like what the basic parts are, clutch, transmission, battery,etc. , but I would have no idea how to do any sorts of repairs in case of a emergency, since I guess that there are at least some things you can do yourself even without having to take your car to a mechanic. My high school education is related to transport and vehicles, but we studied only basic car stuff, but not really how to repair them,etc, so I haven’t learned much there, but if I join the army, which is one of my goals, I may be put in a unit that does vehicle mechanics of some sorts, so I’d like to be at least somewhat prepared.
At the moment I am playing a video game called car mechanic simulator and while it is just a game, it does give you a nice 3d view of the entire engine, loads of different engine designs actually, it shows you how tires are balanced and separated, how oil is changed,etc, but it doesn’t really show how the engine works, how the brakes work and things like that, so is there an all around online video course about this?
I could search for specific youtube videos on how for example a clutch works, then how this or that works, but those videos are usually uploaded by very different channels and each explains in a different way, I would like to find an all round course that teaches as much as possible.
