    What was the scan tool that you used? I'm a diyer n I'm trying to find a scan tool that it'll do majority of what your scan tool does.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alex Squared says:

    Wouldn't a set of wires and less of your time as labour charges be cheaper than these fancy connectors and whatever labour you charged her to crimp them on? It may have been even be the same cost.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Gary says:

    Idk man. Whatโ€™s that a $20 set of plug wires?

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Cameron says:

    Nice work

    Walter is happy and can now go to Gus' and make more meth.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Med Tec67 says:

    Can't believe she could go for a set of plug wires and plugs. I mean I know you tried to sell her on it just can't get my head around being that cheap.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars S C says:

    Great video sir…….. love the attention to detail and it looks factory๐Ÿ‘

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eliezer Ramos Jr says:

    Looks more like human damage. Someone must dislike her/him. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stu Reedy says:

    Big like for the hula dance at the end!

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Spanner Man28 says:

    Good that you kept the original flavour of plug wire. A change of diet can upset their wee tummies and then itโ€™d be chewed plug lead covered in rodent poo for you to deal with. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Hamilton says:

    is there any spray to deter the critters from the harnesses etc?

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J. Cooper says:

    A gM 3400 at some point in time I'm sure that had a head gasket done specially with that model year.. And would do in the head gasket you would do the valve covers the intake gasket in common sense would say do the plugs at the same time. Good call with those original plugs with a 190000 item there's a good chance you're gonna pull the threads. Great the v-jay.. Eric o always Helping his customers and giving them options. Well there's a mechanic where the conscience.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wayne Garrison says:

    Replace it all.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thaddeus Hebert says:

    That's why I keep a box of old plug wires. Comes in handy..

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Crispr Talk says:

    I dont get it.. plugs and wires are cheap. Why are you fixing the rodent chewed ones? This is the first SMA video that makes no sense to me at all.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gtb81 says:

    190k on original plugs and wires, that's pretty good, and it ran good after as well

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars K Law says:

    Not saying this to you by any means, the customer is always right but this is such a pet peeve of mine. I don't care if it's a "beater car" do a little p.m. people! Almost 200k on original plugs and wires? Jeesh.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Labrador McGraw says:

    A true artisan at work. Masterly.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Pellish says:

    Jeez. The hell with that. Buy a set of wires for it and move on. Even if it's a beater car. Would be what $30-$50 Send it my friend. Then again I'm used to spending over $100 a week in gasoline because of how much I drive anyway

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MBS says:

    How could replacing spark plugs and spark plug wires on an older car "open a can of worms"?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars A. Melbs says:

    Where do ya buy the terminals? I've found very little online. They're either right angle ones or there very expensive the ones I've found

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars S. J. says:

    The kind of fix that brings the customer back. As long as you explain the pros & cons it then becomes the customer's choice for any outcome.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan falley says:

    Love when you say "There's your problem lady".
    Thanks Eric

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars THEDRAGONBOOSTER8 says:

    Very good.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Howard Iko says:

    Moth ball sometimes keep the mice away. Being so small you need a lot of them.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Wiseman says:

    Love professionalism & knowledge,keep it up!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Dowd says:

    Why are y'all so critical? I am sure if Eric wanted to sell her some plug wires he could have. This is her second vehicle and she doesn't want to spend a whole lot of money on it so I'm sure Eric came up with an inexpensive fix that she agreed to. If Eric believed that the fix wouldn't work he wouldn't have agreed to it.
    Eric bought her some time and saved her a little bit of money.
