In a previous video https://youtu.be/9bi0pfXNRB4 we had a look ata T&C that came in with a rusty oil pan and a misfire. Easy fix, just needs a coil and some plugs. What could go wrong? Hold my coffee....

    Would you be able to help me with a schematic for my 2011 ford transit connect xl? I am having trouble diagnosing a vent valve issue but I need to test the PCM output for correct ground switched voltage I just cannot find a pin out anywhere online.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aaron Belknap says:

    It's not good to lose your *hit! Although, I've done it several times. I once threw my distributor in the lawn, for some reason it wouldn't go in the engine….. Stuck like a lawn dart in the lawn! My wife wasn't amused at my behavior. I try to take a breath and calm down! LOL. Glad you didn't panic with that one plug. I would have freaked out! Handled it like a boss! Great job for Mrs. O getting the deer and bow hunting to boot! Good skill for the zombie apocalypse! "Lots of oil leaking back here good, good, good, good"! I love it! Good point on the spiral easy out putting pressure on what your trying to remove. Great video as usual!

    Nothing hurts worse than seeing people put a big ol dab of insulating grease on something that needs to make good electrical contact…

    Did you see the one where the guy pulled a screw out of the hoof, wow.

    Step 5: break EZ-out off in hole. Step 6: swear profusely. Step 7: try to remember where your carbide drill bits are.

    👍👊🇺🇲 yum yum over the lips over the gums look out belly here it comes

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Austin James says:

    I love the typical phrase you use all the time. “It’s the classic (insert part number).” Or “Got us a part from Napper, not a sponsor by the way.”

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BaddaBingBaddaBoom says:

    I agree with you on the air tools. My personal favorite is the ole butterfly

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nate Tallman says:

    No antisieze on the spark plugs?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tmetito says:

    6th step go to the gas station buy 2 bucks of gas 7th step burn the pos to the ground if 1 to 5 don't work lol

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars locked nloaded says:

    That's so funny, I have recently got into watching cowhoof trimming also. The hoof GP and Nate the hoof guy.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Davidson says:

    I live in Canada Ontario and my Toyota van frame is totally rotted out at the back good van runs perfect but not worth fixing

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Neil D says:

    Love the ol fashion mechanic way! Nice job! Love those town & country’s. Nice touch at the end injecting a little personal time into your video. Nice well rounded clip. Keep going strong!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Berg says:

    I never even considered that 100k miles on your spark plugs in the rust belt might lead to the spark plug rusting in half. Bummer.

    Something tells me you might not have been able to follow step one if that spark plug broke in the rear head.

    It’s funny because I was the exact opposite with my electric/air tools. As soon as I bought my electric tools, I basically never used my air tools again. The only one I ever used again was the 1/2” air impact, and that’s just because my 1/2” electric impact was intentionally pretty small. I bought good quality Milwaukee electric tools and had enough batteries to have a couple batteries charged at all times.

    Don't tell Mrs. O that you put lube in the wrong hole Mr. O…

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R K says:

    Probably the only time an oil leak is beneficial…rust prevention.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M Lieser says:

    I knew Mrs. O would get the first deer of the season. Way to go Mrs. O!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve 1961P. says:

    Belden Wires never let me down… Used to get then at Long Pond Auto Parts in Gates, NY. Not a fan of Champion plugs anymore though! Maybe they have gotten back to good QC, but back in the day they were the only plugs that had thread issues..

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Teddy Mullins says:

    I replaced the plugs On an 89 coupe de Ville Took me 4 hours ,It had the sideways V8

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ric Jones says:

    Ha! Yeah, those hoof trimming videos are awesome! I watch them all the time.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J says:

    The compressor kicking on is the air clapping at your victory

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars s pin says:

    … but the air power will make you deaf. 😉 Just like fans in a factory or shop. Also, good money trimming cow toenails. Salute! On the deer harvest under GOD's power.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jay Stevens says:

    Why not use anti-seize on the threads to keep the plug from rusting/seizing again?

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

    Or the job can just start stupid because it's a turbocharged Subaru Forester.

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

    Mmmmm. Venison!!!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gizzy nc says:

    I'm the same. total addict of hoof trimming. i think its the puss

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Iain Kinsella says:

    You post content and Ms O hunts, works for us!! Atlas..

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob Barron says:

    So, no anti-seize on those treads?

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruce Hobbs says:

    Nate the hoof Guy!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pat Jago says:

    Incredible how many different styles of red clips Chrysler has produced. I have 2 held together with zip ties.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Reiss says:

    I can remember my father gapping plugs with his thumbnail back in the day. He also had the calibrated torque elbow for head bolts. He'd hold the breaker bar a certain way and when his elbow popped it was good. Man I miss him. Lots of hours in the garage together.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Busted Knuckle says:

    I want my vehicles to run until there is no fixing them anymore

    350/400,000 miles…

    I just couldn't deal with that rust

    Its yours enjoy

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mel Herd says:

    Great video, appreciate the explanation about the extractors!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars khrwjt says:

    I like to watch those guys that forge horse shoes out of a chunk of steel.
    And the Chinese guys that trim donkey hoofs.
    And the watch repair guys. Amazing.
    But I always come back to Eric O. and his lovely wife.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Lemke says:

    Everyone knows it's the black handled screwdriver…

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kmac says:

    LOL I have two of those exact extractors that you like that's pretty funny

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars notrut says:

    How much fuel has that guy been wasting for the last 50,000 mile ….?
    Or did he buy it in that neglected condition ….

    "The classic reach around, Brooksy🔨 and panther🐅 pee", Oh my. Mrs. "O"🎯
    Easy on the drama🎥, MeMaw Jr🏁
    The cat🐈 and the dog🦮 r gonna have the squirts💩…

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars andrewkiwi1 says:

    Have you tried SP air tools. They last well and have tons of grunt for their size. Nice lunch it beats my sandwich yogurt and banana. I can remember one of my work mates struggling to get broken plugs out of an outboard that had plugs with a 10mm or 12mm diameter thread. All you had to do was look at them and they broke.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nuggets MT07 says:

    I think many people can relate to the cow hoof videos, Hoof GP is a good one.
