    Look out on ebay / amazon for a book called "fundamentals of motor vehicle technology" and you'll learn all the tech stuff you'll ever need.
    As for getting 'work' in a garage you just have to do some door knocking, but without any qualifications I think you'll struggle to find anyone who'll let you do much more than an oil filter change! If you spent 6 months of studying that book, you could pass C&G level 1 and probably 2 without much aggro.

    Hi Neo

    Ive ordered the book, thanks for that, but just to add that i am capable of rebuilding an engine, but I do need the every day experiences including diagnostics. Cheers for the advice fella.
