I don’t understand the use of the reflexive ‘se connaître’ and the pronoun ‘y’ in the phrase “je m’y connais un peu en moteurs”. Can someone explain these 2 points, or is it just an expression.
(I answered “Je connais un peu les moteurs” for “I know a bit about engines”. Would this be an acceptable alternative?)

It is an idiomatic expression: s’y connaitre en quelque chose. It means « to be versed in something » or « to understand something ».
