Also, every home owner should invest in one of these, sure multimeters are more complete and give you more info, but this is the easier way to check if something is dead or alive electrically

You can find cheaper ones, but serious testers and pros use Flukes.

pro-tip, now buy some 4" or 6" USB cables so they aren't littering your countertop/floor

Wood - 7
Electric - 6
Plumbing - 6

With these numbers I expect you to be able to build a house. Can you?

Dealership wants me to get a new radiator.   I think i can replace it myself AND i've watched a whole youtube video.  Think i should do it?

Do it. Not challenging. I hate the feeling of antifreeze on my skin and always wear gloves.

I hate the way sandwiches taste after getting antifreeze on my hands.
