First off, I'll begin by saying hello and that I am new to the forum, I'm sure that ill be thanking every one of you soon enough for the hearty welcome ill receive and the endless help that a forum like this will provide. Mostly though I'm posting to ask for help. Somewhat recently I got a bright yellow, slightly modified, '01 Mustang GT with 120k miles on it from my father. It is deeply sentimental and for the last few months I've wanted to learn how to work on it. The main problem is it just seems overwhelming and I have no idea where to start. I know my way generally around an engine (as in i can change my own oil, have replaced spark plugs and coils, brake pads, and so forth) but I really want to know how to get into the bowels of the engine and make the car unique. I want to modify it eventually, but first off I now need to fix it. A few days ago the intake manifold, where the heater hose connects to it, snapped off inside the heater hose while I was driving it. Coolant blew out of the gap between the hood and windshield and I turned the car off immediately. I am pretty sure there isn't any major damage, but its undrivable and I would much rather repair it myself then take it to a shop. The car doesn't need to run any time soon so I was thinking of maybe getting an aftermarket intake manifold or something, but again i just dont know where to begin in learning how to work on cars. And help would be very appreciated, and ill add pictures of the car and the problem soon. If there are any questions or anything that would help you guys help me, or maybe just to learn stuff about each other, i dunno, feel free to ask.
