It also helps to start simple. I cut my teeth on a 57 Chevy... couldn't be simpler.

If you want to get into engine internals, see if your local vocational school has night classes.
If you want to learn on your own, get a cheap project car, and tear it apart. Better to learn on something you are not depending upon to get you to work on Monday!

Also, selecting a model that has really good manuals available for it would be a good choice. A model with a lot of room to work would be helpful as well. Finding a good machine shop is key for engine work.

Best of luck.
Community college is also a good place, just take it as a credit/no credit.
