Question type: General

Hi guys I'm new into this car industry. I only started
to work at this garage of my grandads. I'm able to
operate the obd II and diagnose any issue so far.
But could there be a book that could enlighten me
even more about things I could possibly not know?
It's only been 5-6 months since I'm on the run. Also
any books that have all the car parts (stock) names?
The parts inside a car example tie rod, bush, fry
wheel etc. (I'm not sure if I've spelled these right)
anyone who knows anything please help it would be
a great pleasure.
Note - I live in Dubai. The cars mostly here are
Toyota Nissan Honda Mitsubishi etc

Technical training would be a great plus for you, but I have no experience on what is available there in Dubai. The internet can yield many wonderful results. Just do some searching on topics that you are interested in and read read read.

Thanks for your help but I suck at research. I get all mixed up between various shit. But I'll try.

See if you can find some "Chilton's or Haynes" manuals for the specific cars you tend to work on the most. They have a lot of general information on performing repairs and explaining the parts and names.

OBD II trouble codes are pretty standard. At least here in the United States. I recall giving my Nephew a book several years ago, when he was just starting out, that listed all the OBD II trouble codes with explanations. It was published by either Haynes or Chilton. I believe it was Haynes. HTH. -Jim
