In this video I have a look at a Nissan that was towed in from another shop and I was told it needed a new computer. Before I slapped one in I figured I better have a look. Wish I new the rest of the story. The good news is the computer is ok. -Enjoy!

    Someone once put 3 or more gallons of a liquid in my Corvette gas tank. When pumping it out it resembled milk.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aba Bab says:

    Dang man, I'm just an amateur home mechanic and even I know you first gotta check for fuel, air and spark! Is it incompetence, laziness, or just greed with that other shop? Funny story though!

    What had been put in it?

    Wish I would have recorded pulling out the BURNT straw (wheat not mcdonalds) ends that were in the gas tank of my newly purchased Lincoln Navigator. Someone was trying to kill themselves in the process of being a nozzle.

    Great minds think alike I used the crumpled water bottle for testing fuel injectors also works wonderful and safe.

    Question: 2002 Buick PA. The AC compressor runs even when set to heat. It will cut off if I turn it off at control unit. The AC compressor , low pressure switch, and control unit, all have been changed. The circuit has been diagnosed and all fuse boxes all the way to the climate control unit. Is the problem the ECM or what else could it be the in cabin temperature sensor cause the AC compressor to not cut off? Up in arms! Or is the compressor always suppose to stay running? The AC compressor also had a mind of its own. It will cut off and come on for days in the heat of the summer, and the it will come on and stay on…

    Just had a mis-fueled Sprinter, customer was not exactly upfront. Was doing all these goofy tests, then the lightbulb went off and I was like…EUREKA!!!

    Do you have any videos on the new Bettle volkswagon water pump and timing belt removal and install?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars richard1656 says:

    I agree with you.
    I don't know how else to ask you but in here. I buy a lot of tools from Amazon through your Amazon store like i just bought the astro Pneumatic tool 7897 and 78100, but after selecting one tool it seems i'm out of your store and just in my Amazon account when buying more tools in the same shopping cart. How do I know your getting the credit for buying tools from your store on Amazon?

    I saw that Yukon Depot sticker on the tool cabinet. Haha

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Schmied says:

    Looks a little like diesel mistakenly added to gas.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Skoros says:

    Was a follow up video ever made? Would love to know if the car survived.

    That sounds like the typical new "technician". The shotgun approach.

    I hate it when technicians throw parts at a problem and don't diagnose it properly. Thankfully I do my own diagnosing. I am like you. Prove the fault before doing anything. I don't have the equipment you do but there is more than one way to skin a cat.

    Don't take it to Ford, they'll rob you blind.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bertram Kool says:

    from another shop…… yup know these ones tooo, they're nice, especialy when the shop owner brings the car after hours and hours of work and sees you leak out this stuff right after code reading (no codes). Fueltype/quality and fuel pressure are easy and fast diagnostics I like to throw at no start no code problems.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Hatzenbuhler says:

    Dang. Lots of cars made in the last 15-20 years don't have fuel filters now. It's a cost cutting measure by manufacturers.
    That would darn near, if not completely, total a 10 year old vehicle if you were paying someone else to work on it.
    I added the 2002 Silverado inline filter to my 2005. Ya never know what might happen nowadays.

    My old diesel lump runs on mud 😂 until the water separating filter fills up. I run it on anything i can find that burns and is a liquid, and isn't illegal to burn in a car.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jhsevs says:

    H20, is that water, or hydrogen 20% mix? 😂

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Robins says:

    I'll just bet the owner was "surprised" to learn about this. A shame someone would feel they had to do that to another person. "…and after this, the judgment."

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Kucic says:

    Ouch!
    That musta cot him.😖

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mt Dog Luvr says:

    All they needed was a water separator for the fuel line, geez!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hamlet Ledgister says:

    How can I get those kind of detail wiring diagrams like the you use for a 2003 Audi S3

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mikesp1 says:

    i had a car a few weeks ago. Died while driving had spark had injector pulse had fuel pressure. When i removed the fuel pressure gauge i could smell it Diesel. They had pumped diesel into their car

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars avilamarin says:

    Do you have any video on a/c for honda civic. Thanks

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Dougherty says:

    What do the customers say when they pick up their car after the other shop tells them they need a ECM, after they already replaced parts, and you find just bad fuel? I hope the other shop refunded their money.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Wiersema says:

    I know this is a older video but I did have this happen to me and a few friends in town at the same time. Eventually it was traced back to a local gas station we all went to. They had a crack in the top of a underground tank. After a extra heavy rain that spring muddy water washed into the tank and got high enough in the bottom that they started pumping it into cars.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Osterhoudt says:

    I find it a just odd that brand name dealership can't fix problems and they have all the greatest and latest equipment, but SMA fixes all!!!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave LaBute says:

    Di esel? And H20 mixed with unleaded??

    Let Tell You A Story Of A Man Named Jed ………

    Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed
    A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
    Then one day he was shootin at some food,
    And up through the ground came a bubblin crude.

    Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.

    Well the first thing you know ol Jed's a millionaire,
    Kinfolk said "Jed move away from there"
    Said "Californy is the place you ought to be"
    So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly.

    Hills, that is. Swimmin pools, movie stars.

    Well now its time to say good by to Jed and all his kin.
    And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in.
    You're all invited back a gain to this locality
    To have a heapin helpin of their hospitality

    Hillybilly that is. Set a spell, Take your shoes off.

    Y'all come back now

    Just the best, helpful, informative & entertaining channel I've ever watched. Great value!
    I recently bought an old (22 years) VW Cabrio 3.5 for a summer beach car ( yes, I know Euro trash). It's had a few 'small' issues I've all but resolved – with huge aid from your (and I include Mrs O.'s contribution) videos.
    If you ever come to the Algarve, let me know – beers,vinho & prawns – I owe you.

    PS. – Surely Vanessa qualifies for a Jeep cap now – yours needs a wash (not with brake Clean) btw. 🙂

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ULTRA MAGA PIMPERNEL says:

    Wow, sometimes it's the simplest of problems.

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rod Panhard says:

    It's not unheard of for small independent gas stations to suffer from poor tank conditions where rainwater can get into them. he might have got this just filling up at the wrong place at the wrong time.
