In this video I work on a Chevy Impala that was dropped off at the shop with some parts in the trunk. They included a new muffler and a new throttle position sensor. Let's see how this one goes. -Enjoy!

    Are u sure the TPS on a 2007 chevy impala has to be relearnt? Saw another video that said only 2008 newer. But I'm not sure and I've got a 2007 if I put a new TPS on mine will I need to perform a TPS relearn?

    When you don't stay caught-up you lose customers…didn't take me long to figure that out.

    Legend has it the muffler is still rattling around on the floor.

    You keep saying if I can do it you can do it, Well I am handicap from a stroke and I cant do it anymore. I get depress because of it!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edgar Hansen says:

    Who thought it was a good idea to run a wiring harness that collect dust over the opening for the brake fluid reservoir?

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Barry Shaw says:

    What about a 06 Pontiac grand prix with electronic throttle body if you take it off to clean it do you have to do a relearn procedure

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian M says:

    Eric, do you still charge a diagnosis fee for a car like this? Just curious… (The Dodge at the end, I mean)

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Luken says:

    Came across this video. About to clean my throttle body on my '12 impala. On the TPS it looked like there was a gasket on the old one but not on the new one. Did I just miss it? Also any tips on cleaning that particular TB?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gunsaway1 says:

    Stick a fork in it

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

    Another good one

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars cbar30 says:

    “Keep Motorin”!! Should be the official SMA slogan. T-shits would be sweet.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Larry Ehrlich says:

    Tires love to explode due to low tire pressure. It is safer to have 5 psi over pressure then it is to have 5 psi under pressure. Do not ignore under pressure warnings. Keep your tires inflated properly!

    Wish you would do more videos best video I’ve seen in a long time

    rear tires looked toast.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DIY Dave says:

    "That's the sound of an engine that's about to put ALL of it's part numbers into the oil pan." I nearly did a spit take on that one. Heck, even my wife laughed at that. Eric, that's what makes your videos awesome LOL!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chevy Chase says:

    Shout out for Diablo! See what I did there?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Euclides Velazco says:

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew W says:

    what scan tool was that? Thanks

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Goddard says:

    2007 Subaru Impreza wagon 2.5 how often should I change my timing components

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Wheeler says:

    I just cut off a couple steel posts with a 9" Medium Metal Diablo blade – sliced through them like warm butter. I was quite surprised, to be honest.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack Sroka says:

    People still replace mufflers?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars michael shampine says:

    had to see to the end I knew it was going to have some reason you left it in. as it cranked over I knew it was cooked. I would say over done!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy 2199 says:

    Just a little advice never use walker mufflers pure trash. They'll rott out in a year or 2. Trust me.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Pressley says:

    "The tailpipe went MIA; This side of the muffler has cancer."
    Best laugh of the video

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Burgess says:

    I wish you would've fired it up after cutting the tack welds, for poops and laughter

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Giorgio Brown says:

    Hey Mr. O…i noticed you had a smart phone for your scan tool. What scanner are you using in this video? I've been using my Tmobile Syncup drive code reader/mobile hot spot device to read codes but it doesn't have the ability to read live data and do relearn procedures. I'd like to find a scanner that works with my phone to read codes, see live data and also do relearn procedures. Love your videos and thanks for the feedback man.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Richardson says:

    Lube is the key to life !! More words of wisdom from Mr.O

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary Ewing says:

    Very fine sets of mechanic's working. Love your showing codes, etc. Keep it up.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Giles Littlefield says:

    working on a weekend, have to do the same myself just to keep the family going, you seem like a hard working honest guy, best of luck, I'm enjoying your videos

    I just saw the Ad for the Fixed Box on your channel. You can get rid of all your electronic tools now. Fixed Box and Phone is all you need!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dusty Pate says:

    Changing the air pedal in my 05 Chevy equinox LT fixed my TPS code. Boy was that a pain in the rear lol. I also like to use CRC throttle body cleaner.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 4x4Scout says:

    Number 3 sounds similar to my Subaru when it decided to spin a rod bearing. Sure would love to know what caused that since the engine sounded awesome the day before.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mitch J says:

    You kept on saying, "Let's keep movin'" That's a great tag line.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Robinson says:

    Poor dodge. How many miles?

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tyler Durden says:

    TPS sensor problem on these can be the one on the gas pedal too. It's a really annoying problem.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Maietta, Sr. says:

    Did the new tops come with a new rubber gasket?
