    The same thing happened to me, but at a pull-a-part type junkyard. I was removing a condenser coil (assuming that it was discharged). The coil ended up “Grinching” me with pag oil, and green leak dye. My son was with me, and laughed his ass off saying I looked like the grinch, with that crap covering my forehead, parts of my face, and my now messed up hair.
    Never assume junked car AC systems are discharged!!! Always carry safety glasses, and have them on, when you’re removing AC system components. ….and last but not least & most importantly: Never Assume!!!! ….because when you assume, you make an ass out of yourself. I was lucky that stuff didn’t get in my eyes.
    There is a reason why teachers and college professors who conduct and supervise labs are very strict, mean, and yell at you for not having personal protective equipment on. Don’t complain if they accidentally call you an idiot either, for not having PPE on. ……because at the end of the day; The instructor/teacher is looking out for you. It’s very hard, probably very expensive, or even impossible, to get a new donor eyeball transplanted back into your skull, if something damages it.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Y. C. says:

    Ray , why not remove the radiator with the condenser all complete and work on it on a bench?
    Was removing the intake necessary since you were going to opened and remove all the front grilled.

    I hate this NEONS/ PT all the same…

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Strum says:

    He's taken so much stuff apart, I forgot what original issue is …..

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Oregon says:

    I'm glad you're alright!! I've had that happen to me and I was friggin blind for about a week! PPE is definitely a good thing to have on " note to self " lol and btw, love the videos man, I hope you are proud of yourself! Keep up the great work!

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars shanezy111 says:

    All that for a fan and condenser. Pt crapper haha

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dino Diaz says:

    You need a laser pointer when you point out a spot.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Friend of the One-Eyed Ladies says:

    Am I missing something here. I thought the one AC line disconnected with no pressure on it, but the other one had all the pressure on it. Seems like the core is plugged somehow? Or did I get something wrong there? Not an AC guy…

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars reymond lopez says:

    Omg. These look like a nightmare to work on!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Friend of the One-Eyed Ladies says:

    "Now that we've got the system discharged…"

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim says:

    Is it possible the recovery machine did a correct discharge and the splooging AC fitting is proof of a plug in the condenser?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steven Bryant says:

    They must love that PT!! It isn't valued at any repair price.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Arthur Brown says:

    There are no clean hands in a reach around situation

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Big Jared says:

    These things are the 2nd biggest POS's ever. Jeep Compass will always be the champion.

    Ray! Watchjrgo is looking to transport a tesla battery from Florida to Oklahoma hit him up awesome collab

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JAMES BALLARD says:

    hey man just to let you know, you didnt have to pull the air intake to change that condencer. you could've just pulled the front off and then pull the radiator towards you and pull the fan out. trust me ive done one already and actually i own a pt cruiser

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonathan Moss says:

    Good video. These were never good cars from the outset though.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chicken Permission says:

    Time for a LS swap…..lol

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AL M says:

    Well you know you've done something when you work on a PT Cruiser. I did the timing belt on my nephews without discharging the ac and removing the lines. He lives 1500 miles away from my shop where the proper tools were. It looks as if you could have gotten the fan assembly out the top without removing the manifold if you'd have pulled the condenser and leaned the rad forwards.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Megaandy12 says:

    make the part 3 of at least CLOSE to an hour, like 35 to 40 minutes, cause i love longer videos ray :), keep them coming, and thanks again for entertaining us 🙃🤭🤗

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 73 Maverick says:

    Unfortunately , people with this type of vehicle have to run what they brung. Sux that manufacturers make the consumer test their garbage. Doesn't matter if you can't afford to fix what should've been dependable!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars B ROBB says:

    Typical of car engineers, strip half the car to replace something simple, or one bolt out of 4 will require a, Special tool.
    And GREAT to see, showing as a professional the real life accidents any one can have and yes, we all do, any one that denies something hasn't happened is in "DENIAL" At least you show it, and how simple something could change your life if, Safety Precautions aren't taken 👍

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 73 Maverick says:

    Yeah, can u say POS Cruiser?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 73 Maverick says:

    Umm… In DA FACE!

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Sherwood says:

    Just wondering why you didn't take the radiator out? You went to the trouble of pulling the hoses off and upper rad support, then had to pull the ac lines off anyway. Why not pull the whole cooling package out then take the fan and condenser off? Wouldn't have needed to remove the intake then. I've always changed the fan on a PT Looser by just taking the upper rad support off and pulling the rad forward a little.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phillip Hedley says:

    Why do you disconnect the positive battery post first. For safety you should always disconnect the negative post first then the positive post.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RushDark says:

    I want to know what happen next can't wait

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ray Voorhies says:

    Now Ray probably appreciates the shower in the restroom. It can be handy when you want to go somewhere nice after work. Keep some clean clothes and you can go anywhere after work.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cherokee2005 says:

    Enjoying this video series!!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gas truck says:

    Maybe you do need the shower working 😜

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sam I says:

    Thanks Ray, appreciate you.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Emil Leblanc says:

    I almost bought one of these cars when they first came out, and once I opened the hood, I left the dealership with no such car

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy Peterson says:

    Mental fortitude naw, it's just a PT BRUSER

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars steve konrad says:

    I love watching your videos… They have gotten better since you got on your own. I’m an aircraft mechanic/car mechanic. Have done both. Hated the dealership deal. I do have a suggestion on your wobbly bits. When I use a universal I usually wrap some electrical tape a couple times around it. This stiffens the wobbly part a little. This also gives you more control of how much wobble you want in it. Just thought I’d mention it.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TehTub says:

    I have a 01 2.4 non-turbo PT, I rebuilt the entire front after an altercation with two cement poles.. I know your pain.. 99.98% of the labor time is spent on just getting to the part to be replaced and putting everything back.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chris55130 says:

    Just pull the pin and let'er rip !

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Starcarrier says:

    With all that work, parts, and the other worn parts yet to be repaired, we might be reaching the limit of that car’s value. It seems to be lacking in the quality dept.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GRMMQ says:

    Having your own shop does change a couple of things. You are much more free to do what you want but…
    If you are just an employee you can pass real problems off to the boss/owner.
    When you are the owner EVERYTHING comes back on you.
    You have to learn how to tell the customer that they have no idea what they are talking about and why.
    When a customer insists that "My lack of oil pressure was never a problem before, it must be you", you are going to have to learn how tell them to STFU and why. Documentation is a must in today's world. Sorry. It sucks.
    Your videos may actually be a great asset in your documentation. Keep a running record of what you do.
    Keep posting.

    as someone who owns a 2002 pt cruiser, they are a headache, a money pit, and not fun at all to drive, please make sure youre financially ready before you buy one of these
