    Hi Eric. Your videos are awesome. Thanks. I have a 2000 odyssey that has a bit of issues with the idling notsmooth. This is what I have done so far. replaced the spark plugs, clean the idle control valve, clean up the trottle body, Adjusted the valve lifters.Clean the EGR valve port to the intake. End result did not help.Any ideas on resolving this problem

    Easiest water pump replacement I've ever seen… How convenient.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J. Mark Krzystofiak says:

    Too many intakes to remember…keep those in the same column as fuel pumps?

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnny Sechrist says:

    I use gaskaseal on paper gaskets. Three bond on others…..silicone causes to many problems. I never use regular antifreeze anymore…strictly waterless (No rust). After I mount new calipers I inject brake fluid from an unopened bottle…cuts down on contaminated fluid. Hard to believe you don't buy bulk gear oil for rear ends. It's a good idea to put rubber cap on bleeder screws.

    Does anyone remember the Gus Wilson's Model Garage stories in Popular Mechanics during the 1960s? Mr O is a real and a little less dramatic modern version.

    Great channel. This guy's next career move is hosting the new version of The Red Green Show.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Driver Dave says:

    This is so funny, I watch all your videos, and every time you honk the horn on a vehicle, my dogs wake up on the couch and go barking to the front door thinking the Amazon delivery guy is in the yard. They are not impressed when they discover there is nothing in the yard to bark at…false alarm…again…….

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Peterson says:

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Road Runner says:

    Damn, imagine going to a shop and having new brake calipers fitted because they're cheaper

    i think normal price for calipers on my cars have been around £90

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Southwell says:

    Chain shops are a joke.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ivan Olsen says:

    why not turn the headlights off

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Servo says:

    Wife took our SUV to Midas for an inspection (after I told her to absolutely never go there) and they gave an $800 estimate claiming my steering box was bad. It's one of those older GM boxes where you can adjust the lash on the gears which was all it needed.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bean Lam says:

    I love this videos i never get tired to watch it i love mechanic

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bayviewnick says:

    In many videos I have heard you mention that in the rust belt the caliper bleeder doesn't want to turn and can sometimes snap off. True this! I have found that if after you install and bleed the new caliper, if you spray the area with brake cleaner (queue dramatic music) AND spray down inside the bleeder with the little tube. Follow up with blowing the entire area off and allow to dry. Now encapsulate the area surrounding the bleeder in a 'chrysalis' of silicone and allow to dry. If done correctly, when you attempt to bleed at a later date, you will find that the silicone has sealed the moisture completely out and the bleeder works as well as when new! Repeat after service for continued weather seal-out. YKW
