Is it a belt that can be adjusted?! Only squealing when it's cold?

Mostly squeals when it's cold, but it's not loose. I changed it a couple of years ago actually, so the fact that it's already acting up again makes me think it might be a pulley that's messing up.

I've had car seats sitting in my garage for about a year. Not super proud of it.

That's one sexy whip man. What year is she?

How do you gain the knowledge of cars, I've always been interested in getting into it

Entirely via YouTube for myself, I guess I also have some level of familiarity from doing basic repairs + playing Forza.

I'd say start with whatever interested you, for me it was my family. My great grandfather had a full service gas station back in his day so he always had a proper garage. His son, my uncle was a body & fender man and his daughter my grandmother was married to a General Motors employee. Growing up, when they would watch me they were working on their cars. They asked me to help and carry stuff around so it just became natural to me. As I got older, motorsports interested me.. I loved going fast. Long story short, magazines were big, and now the internet serves the same purpose as a source of knowledge.

No matter what you're in to, looks, speed, turning wrenches, maybe drifting, or just competition in general.. Pinpoint it and dive in. Big push on electric vehicles will ruin the hobby for most, so I'd say time is limited on real accessibility.

I've been super lazy during these winter months but recently had my heater core clog up, which caused the car to overheat, which caused my radiator to crack... so yeah, that broke my lazy streak lol. Use this as a reminder to flush your coolant system every year!
