Looking to understand cars and looking for how to get the information(complete newb)
I've got zero knowledge in general about how cars work. I am looking to understand how cars work and how each component works. I'm hoping by doing so I'd learn how to repair things and know what is going wrong when something does.
I'm considering buying this book: http://www.amazon.com/Auto-Fundamentals-Chris-Johanson/dp/1619608200/ref=dp_ob_title_bk
Is this a good idea? I'm hoping to get the foundation I need from the book. And that the book will give me enough information to tackle most things while working on a car.
