  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 1320Jay says:

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Ellenbaum says:

    i still tell stuff don't fall . i swear it works

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MeMakeSparks says:

    Dang Eric! 😳 What are you benchin'? Both of my rotator cuffs are blown so I have trouble lifting a feather above my head….

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars throttle bottle says:

    blue "smurf pee" fluid. 🤣

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars juha K says:

    What was that blue liquid inserted down of transmission? Is it for cooling? Sorry my bad english.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Emeny says:

    During the test drive at the 18 minute mark, what are all the cabooses (caboosi ?) off to the left, a B&B ?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ThatandCo says:

    seen some race tranny's that use the blue stuff in the 6 second 1/4 mile class

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars HouseCallAutoRepair says:

    Putting the THUNDER back in the Chev-ro-lay!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vaughn Nottingham says:

    It's dangerous and illegal to pass someone on the right Mr. O.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rediband says:

    A relaxing change from the brake and wiring jobs. Thanks.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Melvin Jones says:

    seat belt light on door ajar light on and doing 50 mph what kind of codes does that throw.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gutterratjp says:

    Eric O. My comment and concern is I did not hear one CHEVY THUNDER.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffery Newsom says:

    I could have used these videos this time last year. Replaced my 04 GMC

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

    Hope the Peoples Public of NY works for today

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Merks69 says:

    Just wondering should you check transmission fluid when hot and started or when you just started it cold?

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Szczypienski says:

    Doing 40 in a 30? The cop in that little town is going to ticket the big YouTube star. 😀😀

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars YZ250Yamaha969 says:

    Yo Eric, did you put the wrong fluid in?
    The 4l60e that I know of only take dexron 6 and the the lv atf hp fluid that the 8-speed gets(8l90e). I know the bottle states that it can be backwards compatible but the dealer says it’s not?

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jj dad says:

    Eric the "milkman" lol another cool video good job as usual. I wish I could find the Eric O. in my area that would save me so much time and money!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars smashke says:

    What’s the origin of the catch phrase “Ma Guy” or “My Guy” that Eric uses?

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eric Swindle says:

    I need to know what that tool is called Eric used to put the fluid in the transfer case.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob T says:

    Do you ever start a video and everything turns to crap and then not post it?

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars vwwrenchie says:

    Another shifty SMA video …..Eric gets us in gear and
    keeps us driving forward nice repair bud.🇨🇦😎👍

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TS says:

    Question for you transmission gurus: I used to watch Precision Transmission's channel, and they always warned against installing your own transmission because of some sort of adjustments that had to be made. They were so adamant about that, they wouldn't rebuild or sell a transmission unless they installed it onto the car themselves. But I didn't see anything that looked like adjustments here. Did I miss something?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars executive says:

    I thought 4L60e's took Dexron VI. What is that stuff?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Bush says:

    So I’m leaving a comment cause you asked so nicely Mr. O. Excellent three-parter my man. Looking forward to an engine rebuild series whenever you have the opportunity. BTW-I bought a South Main Auto hoodie from your store and the graphic on the back only lasted a couple of wash cycles. Too bad because it’s a really cool design. Still keeps me warm though. Anyway thanks for all of the entertaining videos!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Oscar Jones says:

    In case you didn’t know, when he separated the original trans/tcase and lost fluid, that’s not normal. The rear seal on the trans likely blew out/leaked, losing ATF into the trans to tcase adapter. At least it appears that way in the other video. And most shops don’t even use a gasket between the adapter and tcase, just silicone so I’m glad he did the gasket

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnny Sechrist says:

    Had only one problem with Jasper, a Ford engine with wrong crank bearings…knocked like hell on first crank….back in the 80's on a F100. They made it good except the increased labor cost for the customer.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Atsue says:

    First off, thanks for the great video. I've been subbed for a couple of years now and very much appreciate your approach to repairs. You are informative and easy to follow. Many others are too but you have a certain way about things that just makes it better, (for me at least). You have helped me do a lot of my own repairs and repairs to other peoples vehicles (mostly family). So I'm curious about something you said here Mr. O. I have changed my T-case fluid on my 2003 Chevy Z71 and my repair manual called for regular ATF. My question is, is the Auto Trak 2 a better fluid or a fluid recommendation change that was maybe done after i bought my repair manual? If this is the case, I need to get the ATF out of my T-case before it does damage. If you or anyone on here can send me the right direction, I'd much appreciate it. Thanks.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Monte Stu says:

    I used a Jasper in my 1977 Caprice with a TH200. It worked great, no failures and the TH200 was a crappy transmission.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keith Studly says:

    I liked the way you checked and adjusted the spacing between the torque converter and the flex plate. Important to get full engagement with the pump and the converter.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars WhiskeyRiverRifleman says:

    When you made the comment about switching the bolts around I laughed out loud for real because I did this job about 2 weeks ago and I turned one bolt around and left the other where it was in the stock position LOL just to be a total smart ass I guess

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark M says:

    Oooooo, automatic comment generator, clamp on backwards! Nice one Eric.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonny Gg says:

    I think your quiet brother Jeric O put that arrow on the transmission mount.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Chiodetti says:

    Thanks for very informative video. I hope that vehicle has many good years left.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Smith says:

    Dollar General! Not a sponsor.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Johnson says:

    Yeah then the guy goes out this winter and blows it up again plowing snow because his transmission cooler ain't big enough to keep it cool

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marion Mitchell says:

    Eric I bet very few, there are some, would go to the trouble to make sure the correct fluid, all the plastic clips, every bracket is tightened, all the little things that are a pain in the rear end to do are completed. The folks around Avoca are, or should be honored to have you in their midst!! AND that truck should be a fluid film commercial, my gawd that thing looked like it was from Arizona.
    That is remarkable.
    Marion.

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DouglasH says:

    Hi Eric, and the lovely Mrs. O. Amsoil has a replacement, I believe it's their Multi- vehicle ATF for GM. It states Auto-trak II in the specs.

  50. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mikey mike says:

    Sure wish the 4wd on my 02 Silverado shifted correctly! Mine is stuck in 4 hi!
    Have to pull the atc fuse just so I can drive it

    ALWAYS AN AWESOME JOB…SOLO STATUS 👍🙌
