should i go to school to be a diesel mechanic or an automotive mechanic? i would much rather prefer to just be a regular mechanic, but with the auto industry the way it is i feel it might be a risk. there is tons of money in the diesel world, but i was thinking about it and since hardly anyone is buying new cars anymore, more people should be fixing their old cars. please leave feedback as to why you chose what you did. i need to make this decision soon.
