    These are great.

    I was wondering why these old videos keep popping up they must still have Revelations.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Puig says:

    Eric, living in Florida I wouldn't want anything to do with those rust buckets that you have to deal with, however I understand that the brown color to you means Green pesos. The other day I saw a Cadillac Escalade SUT and the fenders an rocker panels were all ate out which made me think to myself, "that must be one of Eric's customers, he must have worked hard to get that thing to make it all the way to Florida." 😆🤣🤣

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Bright says:

    Watching this again, it's coupe, saloon and hatch or hatchback.

    And you shouldn't talk about your X in front of Mrs O 🙂

    Old Eric O vids

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars agmc4me says:

    Maybe you could move a few things around in the background. You could see how many differences we find

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BACKWOODSFREAK says:

    Hatchbacks are 3 door if coupe or 5 door if sedan

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lawrence Lamson says:

    I would've at least freshened up timing

    We in UK love a cup of tea boot and bonnet love the show lock down special.

    no rust on Pontiac

    Right after I type in my comment, Mr O says, My engine is a junker! (ECO-TEC 2.2) I realize that they are known for damaging the valves when the timing chain goes! I just picked mine up second hand & YES, IT HAS THE TIMMING CHAIN RATTLE AT START UP SO, I REPLACED THE TOP TENTIONER BUT, THE NOISE RETURNED! My job cut hours down to 16hrs per week & were always getting done early but, Hours are supposed to be picking up-we'll see-(HOPEFULLY!!!!!) Then maybe I can afford all the timing components but, then I wont have the time… I need to do the timing on my 07 G5 2.2!!!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars D.j. says:

    I'd like to know why my 03 focus pukes trans fluid when I pull an axle vs my 07 Pontiac G5 which does not puke upon axle removal…Must be design! Brother has a friend getting rid of a g6 w/ 2.4 & I am wondering if I could use that drivetrain (engine, trans, & ecu) in my 07 G5 (2.2) WOULD IT WORK & WOULD IT BE AN UPGRADE/MORE POWER?

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Hopple says:

    Future reference,..dust the armrest with talcum powder and inside of cover to make it slide easier!😉

    Pb&j is the best . It’s better if you fry it like a grill cheese it so good

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Gomm says:

    In the uk you have a 3 or 5 door hatchback, the hatchback means you can access the main car usually by folding the rear seats down, we also have 4 door saloon, where the boot is completely separate from the rest of the car, or we also have a coupe which is like a saloon but only 2 doors

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick Pettersson says:

    purro pinche motor e transmeessohn.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Highly Polished Turd says:

    Good point about the water pump O ring, being "aftermarket garbage". I did a thermostat on my Corolla (same engine). The aftermarket O ring had coolant pissing on the garage floor. OEM O ring hasn't leaked a drop five years later.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pete James says:

    We drink gallons of tea in the UK, every day, each… And drive around in 4.6L P38's which we 'pull the bonnet' on more times than we care to mention. Toodle pip…

    To be cont'd again.

    You forgot to tighten the old sparkplugs in the bad engine to factory specs!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Guy Boltrucyk says:

    I worked at the plant that made that car.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony Young says:

    Brand used engine

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars markam campbell says:

    change the rear main seal while you have it out because it will leak when you put the motor in.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars markam campbell says:

    that's always fun to slip it in right after lunch.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars markam campbell says:

    are you going to check the timing chain while it's out?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars THEtechknight says:

    DARNIT! Wanted to see an engine autopsy….

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard R says:

    Hello , Eric after watchin you work so hard I just have to say that for your wife to serve you salad for lunch I really found offensive brother ! Why not give you something a little more substantial ? Like ,oh how about maybe ,
    a nice sandwich consisting of sliced black forest ham , turkey , swiss cheese, with leaf lettuce , one slice of tomato .mayo, mustard, and sliced pickle , on rye bread !! with a little potato salad, OH yeah, now THAT'S , a lunch for a master mechanic ,no cooking required either !! LOVE your videos man, your so amazing , BIG FAN , STAY DIRTY !!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R B says:

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Duncan Mac says:

    ….and it never sleeps. (rust) Hey a little salad now and then ain't too bad. Your colon will thank you. lol. Thanks for the video.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheWicklunds25 says:

    You said you have arthritis in the video and then you complained you had no meat for lunch… If you don't like arthritis pain, follow your wife's plan and eat salads and no meat.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Oscar Padilla says:

    would the transmission have come out with the engine?

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin G says:

    Sure ,Everytime you go in the office ,,Whats for lunch ? Mrs o "salad " eric o "Any meat " …i feel for ya ..

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sirboom says:

    They call sedans "Saloons" …… whyyyyyy?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adam Trombino says:

    Boy you ain't lying about not sending the core back before the replacement is in the car and running. I was doing a 2.6 Mistu mini van. I had the 'new/used' 1 on a stand and the dead 1 on the floor on a pallet. That was on a Friday, and I was off then until the following Tuesday. When I got back, the core was gone… Problem was I had 2 brackets left that were unique to that van, still on the core. My boss thought I was done stripping it. Well, a call to the junk yard revealed that it was 'gone'… It took us 2 months to find them from a California junk yard… That's 2 whole months that my bay was tied up, and 2 months that the customer was without his van.. Ouch.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Fuller says:

    WOW LOOKS like the compressor missing part of the clutch

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dano C. says:

    looked like the the engine coolant didn't have any antifreeze added. looked like contaminated water… Lol

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars aus footty says:

    idea    100 uses for break cleaner    for your next addition of SMAR

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jan Verschueren says:

    Pretty silly for the owner not to have the AC fixed while the engine is out of the car, imo. Can't be that hard up he can't spare another couple hundred if he owns a car, right?

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars I may be wrong but its highly unlikely. says:

    Hatch back is called a fast back.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lao Han Tun says:

    Great life Eric….bless your heart.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Woodcock says:

    Ain't anyone out there that should be givin Mrs O any grief about salad or anything else. You appear to be one lucky man Mr. O

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CARS LOVER says:

    great great video im really enjoyed

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Potskie says:

    You cracked two remarks about people unsubbing in this series. Both made me glance at the sub count when you did and You gained 18 subs from the first comment to the second (~ 2 hrs ). Thought that was kinda neat.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shadowdog500 says:

    Our Dakota ate the arm rest off my Jeep when we left her in the car for a few minutes as a puppy. It was nothing duct tape couldn't fix on an old jeep. Chris
