Unhappy Lingo for a noob

im a really big noob with 4 strokes. i know everything about small 2 stroke motors.

i can re-build a small 2 stroke in about 30 min from top to bottom

but when it comes to 4 strokes, i have no idea what im doing. i really want to learn how to work on my car, and not have to bring it to a mechanic(not because i dont want to pay for it, i just like working on motors)

if someone could just help me out, and tell me some of the lingo for cars, and just teach me a little bit about 4strokes.

thanks,

-matt
