    It would be nice if oil filters had drain plugs to minimize the mess!

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phil Spear says:

    Dumb question: are the drums on the back just for the emergency brakes?

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Johansson says:

    Here we go dip stick

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Mills says:

    Needs at least two lug nuts installed the high spot was 180 from the tightened nut

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars randy beard says:

    You have a tendency to Live on the Dangerous Side-pouring oil without a Funnel…

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Art Deresh says:

    Not worth all that hassle, rotors cost $12-$15 so why waste your time, put new ones on.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars brian watkins says:

    ray I think you should put another wheel nut opposite as well to get a more accurate reading the DTI seemed to indicate that

    $7000 for a chair !! Who would spend a months wages on just one item of furniture

    Morning Ray:
    You certainly are a very smart mechanic, and also super hart Worker.
    I am a Canadian, not a US member of the Human Race.
    I am somewat concerned that as a U S Workaholig you have one maybe 1 5 ehes were you next jib is comming from. Right!!!
    Please do not consider to head over to Russia to fix all their Army Trucks, Tanks, and Airplanes or Missiles. You only have one Lifetime not 3 or 5
    Besides we need a North American VLOGER her on our continent.
    Please if you are somwhat uncertain about my advice — just ask your wife if she likes American $$$ 00 or Rubels.
    I Thank you. From up here in Canada.
    THX.
    Klaus

    If I was Ray, I’d poke a hole in the filters to avoid mess before removing

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Travi says:

    I love my caliper tool. Thanks for the link.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Pearce says:

    Please use funnel

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris White says:

    Don't you blow line around oil cap and you should now use a funnel at least as the rubbish around oil filler caps where you spilt the oil during flow's now inside the engine bad boy.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Get Heated says:

    I bet that viewer that complained about throwing customers personal property would have died when I rebuilt the rear brakes on my truck. (Sadly that was before I started my channel)
    The brakes were so beyond salvage and normal disassembly we literally had to use a sledgehammer to break the drums. I now have better tools for breaking drums too. 😂
    Anyway… They obviously have no idea how cars, parts or shops work and just wanted to feel important. You just keep doing what you're doing bro, don't listen to the haters. Laugh at them like we all should 😆

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kasual Skeptik says:

    I like the very faint piano music… It adds some additional class to the videos…! What is the source ??

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TJ Kaczynski says:

    Ray do not comment on loser pain in the asses, that nit pic any little thing you might do, adds fuel to the imbislsols fire!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joex51 says:

    i know someone with one of thoses chairs and if I had the Money I would absolutely buy one well worth the 7 to 10K

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blue Royal says:

    You should have pushed the rear caliper in with your thumbs. I do it at work. Just for fun sometimes 😉

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AV84USA says:

    Nope. I wouldn’t appreciate someone entertaining themselves with my oil change. I’m sure you cleaned all the spun-off filter oil, so this doesn’t apply to you.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Goodell says:

    Love your videos but up here in upper Michigan this wouldn't work gotta use a scaler and brake grease

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars eric kestner says:

    forgotten green hanger

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wades623 says:

    There is another thing you should have mentioned with back brakes. Some of them you have to have the tool to twist and push at the same time if you try to just push them it will wreck the caliper

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matt says:

    Um just saying but you need to have more then 1 lug when looking at runout the 1 lug is not going to let that sit right the low point was next to lug nut, high point was opposite lug nut
    i would have changed them just from the cracking.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheDaily Prepper says:

    Is there a reason you don’t use disc quiet.?

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

    @Rainman Ray's Repairs i just checked you're only 38 hour drive away from me. Just in case you're interested.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars theeddorian says:

    You consistently said "out of round," while the measurement you were taking was of how flat the rotor was, not how round it was. With just one lug nut holding the hub, I think that at least some of the error was just run out from the single fixed point. That said, I enjoyed the video.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jordan Kinberg says:

    Cant you just mic the rotor in a couple of places and check the run out that way?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg F says:

    Pretty piss poor way to check rotor runout

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan's Learning Curve says:

    How much force is too much when pushing caliper pistons back in?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars choongkeat says:

    What could have cause the condition of the rotor? If the pads are fine?

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shamway Moonyos says:

    I work for a large bank and have been involved in new branch openings. You will be shocked how much they spend on each chair for example. Each chair was custom made and was $8K for at least one type of them for customers to sit at. Expensive stuff!

    For my personal chair at home I had invested $1300 and its been worth every penny. Use it a LOT daily. Got that back in 2015 and still works great along with my standing desk. I also now work from home daily and did back when I bought the desk and chair but yes its been worth it! But $8K on a chair… nope!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john williams says:

    Do you change the air and cabin filters on an oil change. If not why not, please.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars spellcrafter23 says:

    Actually, have you tried using the oil dipstick as a guide? Pull dipstick out of slot, put end in the oil fill hole. Pour oil down the dipstick. Should have enough viscosity to stick and go directly into the engine with no mess…

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mohygen says:

    Great video as usual but I have one question if I may. What was the condition of the brake fluid?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Marks says:

    i always stick with the manufactures recommended oil weight. i was surprised you moved to 5w30

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Nixon says:

    Hot spots mean it can't be machined.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alex Kennel says:

    Nice music… by the way.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars stanley koziol says:

    i just looked up the chair i found some over $14000

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars C Harrison says:

    I had to look up the cost of the x-chair after I heard you guys discussing 7k for a chair. The most expensive I found was just over 2k. Still expensive, but not as bad as 7k

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Brown III says:

    On the rear brakes if you put the old pad on to push in the piston it gives even pressure and won’t brake the piston

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob McDoggish says:

    Ray, since the old rotors show hot spots and surface cracks, indicating to me that the little car gets driven like a mini-NASCAR-mobile, why not recommend cross drilled rotors to facilitate cooling?

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars oil says:

    what ive found is that almost ALWAYS the rotors get warped because the idiots at the tire shop put the lug nuts on with the air impacts and dont use a torque wrench.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars T Smith says:

    Toilet seat $600.00

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars OldePhart says:

    You don't pre-fill the filters because of a chance of debris, yet you fill the engine without cleaning the area which has visible debris. Your logic is unsound. 🙂

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gregory Pace says:

    Funny you make such a big deal out of not adding oil to the filter because of contamination, then dump oil on the dirty filler tube I know the will go to the filter prior to the main bearings LOL. I fill my oil filters because I don't want the bearings pounded prior to the oil pressure coming up and I don't get shit in the filter.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mario Saccoccio says:

    You dropped the customer's dust boot.. . How disrespectful!

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ron slaughter and Alice says:

    Personal opinion on allowable run out of 0.003 is not so good when you consider there is another side to that rotor that could be running out as well at 180 degrees from where you indicate on the first side. 0.003 don't sound like a lot but if the rotor is not running as true as the bearing plus factor in speed you have friction. Rotors are typically ground both sides in the same set up. As well your test set up has to replicate the exact conditions of the rotor motion.

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars predatorfe says:

    I also never prefill my oil filters when I do an oil change on my car, and have a very good reason for that:

    It is mounted horizontally 😀
