Well there is you first mistake, hating shops. If you hate a shop, take a mechanics course, or better yet go work at one as a service writer. Deal with every customer that walks into your shop expecting you to rip them off. I work a Yamaha Dealership, and this really really pisses me off.
Also keep in mind, the more you dissasemble on your own, when you do have to take it a shop, they will generally charge you more to figure out wehat the problem is. Have you ever been handed a bucket of parts and been told to put everything back together? It is not fun. A mechanics mind works like a map. You know where every bolt has to go because you took it out.
Sorry to be harsh, but it is a pet peve of mine, and because I have to deal with it every day, seeing this gets me going lol.
