    Appreciate your videos and your candor on things.I’ve learned quite a bit by watching and really appreciate your explanation on the why..

    You always make it look easy..
    Thanks again !

    Think it is more because that is not how they would do it. Or maybe they think it cost too much to use butt connectors. I have started using them, and not sure I like them. But they sure beat a twist and tape job, and look way more professional. I personally want to do things to make the work look professional or as close to OEM as possible.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Playz says:

    Worked for 38 years on industrial food processing equipment and used crimp connectors all the time only had a few fail and with heat, cold (frozen foods) cleaning chemicals are a lot more issues for failure the in a car even in New York!

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DoYouFeelLucky? says:

    Ok Eric, for us hicks in Indiana, what is the PRNY?

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tuco Benedicto says:

    Love the creme Brulee Torch. Lol.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Cz says:

    Had this on in the background and the moment you said "Someone's already played the washer game" I still knew exactly what you were talking about.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DoYouFeelLucky? says:

    Tell those ppl what a connector would end up costing your customer.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wesley Brabant says:

    Merry Christmas to you and your family Eric!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Hill says:

    The only person thats gonna complain has never had to work in shop for a living with customers that just want their junk fixed cheap. ps the best hammer for a mechanic is any tool he can reach.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars coopdivi says:

    I've been watching too many of your videos. When you were bolting up the new blower motor (made in Canada I notice!) I kept hearing a whispered voice in my head saying, "Enhance! Enhance!" 😄😄😄

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justa Hasbeen says:

    South Main Auto- Proudly brought to you by your friends at Fluid Film.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wesley Brabant says:

    After watchn one of your videos on Krawn. I went out n had my 2018 sierra crewcab sprayed out here in Saskatchewan 🇨🇦. It's a great investment in your vehicle. Thanks Eric for that tid bit

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars michael blacktree says:

    I think Eric's new nickname should be The Tire Whisperer. 😎

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George says:

    Man, that salt belt is ruuf. Im just outside of it and so the salt belt effects me as well but geez, you get inside that belt and it'll strangle and shake ya car till the wheels fall off.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wesley Brabant says:

    I've watchd your videos since
    Our beards were black. Youve helped me diagnose n repair my vehicles through the years your a good man Eric. like many other viewers we love your how to videos.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Perrett says:

    another good video, I always see you use the wire strippers around the other way I always pull the insulation off against the flat side of the strippers

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jero jero says:

    We’ve had a problem down here in the south that about 5-10 years ago used car lots started to go to auctions and buy those rusted out vehicles. They looked great but people never looked underneath. Then the “new” owner is trashing your shop for charging $800 for a “simple brake job”.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William T. Musil says:

    Hiya Eric

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Josh says:

    Hey Eric, I’ve always had one question for you based on growing up in PA and living in Illinois in the salt belt now. What’s the best cars to avoid rust issues?

    I know you don’t work on European cars in general, but my vw/Audis have been pretty fantastic in terms of rust issues.

    I’m constantly amazed at the rust issues you find on newer cars in your shop.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars glen Decuir says:

    👍👊🇺🇲"🤣🤣"

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Sutcliffe says:

    Don't you mean Aluminium rivets? 😂

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars harry walker says:

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh,,you did it wrong,,not really,,i never torque wheel nuts,,had a shop torque them, could not get them undone, went back said, 350lb,is a bit much..theres 8 lugs, 40 lb would suffice. once i count to 7 bangs under the guard, i pull over..

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cliffy B says:

    Someone needs to go back to tire school. I think I counted 4 wheel weights on that wheel you were spinning. Love the vids, keep it up

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars edward little says:

    Who cares what tools you use and where you use them, You paid for them and it is no one else Business what you do with them. You got the job done in a fair amount of time. Great job as usual!!!!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nidal Alrifai says:

    keep up the great work.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 2491kridge says:

    I’ve been using these crimp and seal connectors for years after seeing them on your channel, I’m on my third box of them and have literally never had one come back failed, I will happily continue using them 🤷🏻‍♂️

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zippy TheChicken says:

    pennsylvania uses a lot of salt too but I have worked on lots of cars with little to no rust… people don't wash the underside of their cars and hit the rust with spray paint before it becomes a problem.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars harry walker says:

    tell those,??,,tossers..to take it to a brand shop,,see what they do & what it costs..

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars harry walker says:

    blowing in the right diresction,,that sucks..

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aku2Dimensional says:

    Am a certified Armchair Mechanic with over 6 years of use on the same chair and I'd say that all of those repairs are acceptable.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Germanium18 says:

    Being a mechanic in the rust belt keeps your on your toes. I live in Texas, and I see you repair relatively new vehicles of things that are unheard of here in the south. My daily driver is a 1997 GMC Sierra. This truck wouldn't exist anymore in the north.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars paul joey says:

    Great job. Thinking of becoming ur neighbor so you will work on my car…..lol……

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CS says:

    You are always so even tempered. Have you ever sent a part across the shop in a moment?

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jeff snyder says:

    i think some people get pissed because there JERKS!!!!!! LOL!!!!

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ice44567 says:

    Have you ever tried using those spring loaded automatic wire strippers? I'm addicted, now that I've learned how to eyeball the gauge of wire lol. Of course, your tool can both strip and crimp so its probably saving you time at the end of the day 🙂

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nickolas Cunningham says:

    You never fail to entertain, thanks Eric!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stan Patterson says:

    Hey, that aftermarket blower appears to have been made in Canaderp. That`ll be the Cockford-Ollie !

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john rogers says:

    I was waiting for some mouse poops to pop off using that handy torch 😅

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars avid dyi'er says:

    It's funny, I could hear the intrawebs yelling at me this past weekend when I used a chrome socket on my impact. And I haven't posted videos. Wow, they are loud!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Reed says:

    Keep being honest.
    Love you.
    Peace.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Gingrich says:

    There are quality crimp connectors. Then there are the crappy good-for-nothings hanging on shelves of parts houses.

    My own personal experience: I use crimp-ons only on copper wires. Everything else seems to slip out like a limp noodle.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gerald guyette says:

    Good job Eric .

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan Hunter says:

    12 point chrome or go home

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wrang15 says:

    Same in PA.. but with my gravel roads it rips any coating off.. got 12 years out of my last truck. The stay hammered the roads today with the liquid spray in the snow. People still crashed like allways in the snow and got stuck.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan Hunter says:

    Imagine there was a band that played for all the haters called Eric O and the Flush Cuts. Cause he doesn't give an expletive

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan Hunter says:

    The classic SNAP ON PWCS7ACF. Best wire stripper/crimper

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Farris says:

    Well if that ain’t the fanciest river gun I ever did see.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob Peabo says:

    There is nothing wrong with cutting the plug & crimping the wires. Plugs do fail, as was the case with the OEM one. In theory the crimp joints you did should better than a plugged in joint. As you say the car won't be long in this world, so it wouldn't be worth purchasing a plug that you would then most likely crimp the tails on anyway – you could have soldered I guess, but you could have done this here also. Some people just complain because they can, not because of sound argument.
