Want to become a mechanic need help Sign In

        
Im 17 years old and im a senior in high school and recently ive been thinking about a career as a mechanic. Ive always liked cars but i honestly have no idea how to get into this kind of work. Another problem i have is that i noticed that most kids my age that are tryin to get into this field have had experience with fixing cars and i have none. if you can please help me

Experience isn't a problem, I'm a 1st generation tech myself.
If this is something you really want to do I would suggest a good trade school to get a good background with the different systems.....
You definitely want to learn & understand electrical systems and how electricity works. Getting on at a shop or lube place as a gopher would be a huge plus, then you could watch & learn.
If you aren't in an auto shop class now you should really try to get in one.
