    the expansion valve was fine. It clearly has a leak. Just have them come back later if issue come back.

    AC will blow colder if you turn the fan speed down. Alot dont know this.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars txangel says:

    you cant check air temp with a laser. You need to use a thermometer.

    Easy to get that washer off with some plyers and impact.

    hey boss, i respect your opinion and what you do for a living. I have a question for you about a certain vehicle. what do you think of the Toyota Prius? have you had many in your shop? If so, are there any common issues you have encountered with these cars? The specific model years I'm looking at is 2013-2015.

    As for the hybrid battery itself, I already educated myself on replacing that myself so its not a concern, I'm looking for other common issues

    Worst shop screwup for me was driving a Saab with approximately 2,000 miles on the odometer through one of those big metal and glass garage doors. Well… "through" kind of makes it seem like I successfully exited the building. To be clear here, I was not successful at exiting. Partial success, at best – everything from the top half of the windshield back did remain inside the shop. It was… Well, if you ever want to silence a dozen people who are yelling back and forth across a noisy shop, using a customer's nearly new and somewhat expensive vehicle to demolish a garage door that is, itself, not exactly inexpensive… worked for me. It was quiet as the vacuum of outer space. Er… Except for the occasional piece of glass landing on the hood.

    That was my ninth day there, I think. No, I did not get fired.

    reminds me of when i just came out of mechanic school, customer bugged me about his ac problem and i forgot to put the oil in first, the foreman saved my ass lol nothing happened to his engine but it could have been a disaster. don't let the customer watch over you while you are working, make them sit in the waiting room.. never happened again in 40 years.

    9 16 it must have been a non contact valve/piston engine.

    we all screw up at our job some time its inevitable

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Celtic Gale says:

    So best way to get the crush washer off is put the drain plug on the appropriate wrench or socket and use a pair of pliers to twist it off

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cosmic Shadow says:

    heres a tip from a kia lube tech 😅, if them crushwashers are stuck like that, get a pair of pliers and grab the washer, and ratchet the drainplug out. I deal with that WAY too much from those if they were say done at say quick lube shops (1 starting with a J, or another with a P perhaps

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Bland says:

    Impressed with your math skills!

    I want to bring my 08 Xterra (4.0) to you…..(dash lit up like Xmas tree) problem…I’m in Virgin Islands….

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 1soupasaurus says:

    I threw my hands up too Ray. Mistakes happen, probably a good idea to leave that job. You learned your lesson, but they would have never forgotten that one time you did something dumb. "Can't even trust this guy to do an oil change." You would have been stuck on cleanup duty.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars daniel minshall says:

    You're not the only one that messed up before. 🙂 I was doing too many things to a vehicle at one time and forgot to put the oil in the engine. It was a customers car. :O I started hearing a knocking sound when I pulled back into the shop and I saw the containers of oil still sitting in the floor. I was like,"OMG". I was lucky enough that I pulled the oil pan off and I replaced the Mains and rod bearings after I used emery cloth to clean the aluminum bearing off the crankshaft. Luckily it ran perfect and never had any problems after that. They are still driving that car today. Thats been a long time ago and the car is still running. I lucked out. 🙂

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ray Brown says:

    To many lazy mechanics did not change the washer and now with repeated tightening's the inside diameter spread and locked itself in place? What's new?

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Guy Marotta says:

    Never take your car to this shop.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Spaghetti says:

    does anyone know what the tool he used to get the valves out is called?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Haunted Fright says:

    @Rainman Ray's Repairs you should do a video that's unedited like a scheduled live stream or something

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sebastian Nagels says:

    You are awesome. I like how you imitate the phone ring sound 😀

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hack Mastershot says:

    So when I worked at Kia i found the easiest way to remove those crush washers was a wrench and channel locks. Maybe that will help in the future lol. Great content man!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars roadking99 jokerst says:

    You did a cameo appearance from the floor. Crush washers gotta crush.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Bellio says:

    You disliking engine oil is like a surgeon disliking blood

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Bellio says:

    Did that Kia have a Volkswagen engine

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Larry Smithart says:

    I call Volvo's Volva's

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Will says:

    I almost got fired for something that wasn't my fault a few years ago. Was working on a Kia Sportage doing an oil change and I think tires or a rotation, very busy day I pulled the O ring off the cartridge filter housing and I git pulled right as I was getting done With it to do another car, boss has another guy take over who was a position above me didn't look to see if the O ring was on (never changed oil filters) installs filter fills engine with oil starts vehicle and boom oil spill. Needless to say I got a write up because management sucked and played the favoritism card. I no longer work for that shop I put my two week notice in and was done Xmas Eve of last year.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben Schuler says:

    Just got my 2000 eclipse back today and found out my oil leak is from block side cylinder 3 exhaust port is cracked and been driving it like that for 10 years.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jemcnair76 says:

    Get some flush- cutters, dude!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Lee says:

    Evacing a system to 500 microns or less under a decay test is required to pull all moister from a system correct it is however not because of freezing… its to prevent moister turing to acid over time and to preserver the life time of the system

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Briggs says:

    You need to learn not to spill oil on customers cars either, you're a messy tike!!!!🤣🤣🤣

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars frank o donnell says:

    there re dodgy mechanics , or want to be mechanics that spoild the rest of us

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars frank o donnell says:

    I like the fact you are not trying to sell parts , As and the parts cannon , which is a mild way of saying , lets just replace everything eveng , I seen n ireland , why replace everything , its a flaw hear, because unlike rayman ray, if you dont know how something works or understand how it should work , then let a doddy person with spanner' s replace the whole thing

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Danny Noble says:

    Question is – after the original is cut to pieces – do you have a replacement on hand? Ah, well done.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Martin says:

    It's the small things that count, like taking the minute to put the customer's vehicle inside for the night, you don't have to and no one will ever know, it's like the shopping cart theory.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sawbone IOMC says:

    Punch a hole in the bottom of the filter before you open the drain plug….it’ll drain and won’t be as bad when you take it off

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars lento says:

    the garage put wrong oil in my car

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gene Murphy says:

    Buy some Klein diagonal cutters red handle I believe 7 1/2” long

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gevelegian says:

    AvE Quote and his very knowledgeable videos are an instant sub! Glad I found the channel.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Bledsoe says:

    In 2007 I bought a brand new truck. Got home and found it Dripping oil at drain plug. Took it back. Got called later that day. It’s ready. We replaced the drain plug. Which was a standard way they did so as you don’t lose the engines oil. Went to pick it up and the Service Manager met me and said want to show you this. We thought it was just the washer but when it was out we saw that the drain plug had a crack all the way through it. You could see it in the metal of the plugs head and in the threads. It went kinda sideways as it went through it. Really interesting. No problems since. Well it ate an alternator and regular old everyday battery replacement.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vivian Parslow says:

    When a malleable washer is compressed, its inner diameter reduces and its outer diameter increases.
    Hence it grips the undercut tightly.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Guiseppe Falzarano says:

    You've gotta be pretty smooth to do all of this in under an hour

    Who needs AC anyway? Just open the window
