    Blue "Torque Seal" on the oil drain plug usually means Wally World.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel B. says:

    Bushing stuff is just too expensive unless it is completely ripped and it is metal to metal I won't even bother unless I wanna do it myself.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chuck Holton says:

    Having that attitude is one of the best things to have.
    It shows what a great and honest mechanic you are! ANNNNDDDD, don't forget to have a nice day!! 😁😁

    see i had control arm bushings that were shot so i told the guy to hold off. he is a mechanic that will use parts you supply so i put together the cash for repairs and parts. ordered moog control arms and came back for the guy to do the work.

    got the parts cheaper online and work done at a good price. now if mine were that bad id just ask how much just to replace the bushing itself.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars It ain’t rocket science says:

    I’ve never understood the apprehension of most people to just read directions/ use a torque wrench/ follow manufacturers recommendations.

    Stubborn people!
    “ we don’t need no stinkin’ torque machine!”
    “Ma daddy done showed me da way!
    I use a torque wrench on almost everything.
    It takes 4 seconds and it’s 99% accurate.

    Let’s just say I’ve never lost a wheel or stripped out an oil pan.

    For only 74k, that thing is quite beat up and warn. But, if your like me you just observe and repair. Whoever it is might want to fix that bushing, they definitely won't like the premature wear on every other component. Gulp

    I respect your honesty.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mark says:

    It's actually very common for the compliance bushing to have small tears like that. They are over extended by just lifting the vehicle off the ground as you can see. Just another example of a small time joe mechanic shop overcharging people and giving the industry a bad name…The customer was smart to decline services from this asshole. He has been reported to the BBB for crap like this in the past

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mightywatcher says:

    here in the uk they very strict any torn bushing or split is a fail mot and many other rules aswell

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Walkertongdee says:

    The customer just wanted a free brake inspection no common courtesy on his part.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy f says:

    You always let your flip socket wobble into your customers rims like that?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John E. Carr says:

    Another Great Video.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew says:

    love how you used torque wrench for drain plug, most will say you dont need em, but its better safe then sorry

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aaron's Projects says:

    "When you take the old oil out. You gotta put new oil in." I couldn't figure out why every vehicle I owned has blown up after the first oil change! Thank you! 🤣🤣🤣

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J Steganius says:

    Thought I would share this and you are gonna think I'm crazy however, groaning and slight growling and grabbing on rainy days of brakes is caused by glazed, polished rotor and drum surfaces. I have and old, dull carbide bit on a die grinder to rough them up. Don't have hit every little spot. Nice smooth brake action again for about 5 more years!!!!!!!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cmc Mcc says:

    My grinding would up being a sticky caliper

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frank Angermann says:

    Wheren‘t u confused to just use an Impact to loose the nuts instead of using
    a drill?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy Pilot says:

    Everyone knows the torque spec for a Honda drain plug is one grunt. Any more and you risk destroying the crush washer. LULZ

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars carguy says:

    More junk control arm bushings made my Bridgestone APM. Company is terrible.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars beast64375 says:

    An 02-06 civic with only 76k on it, not even broke in good. Mine has 440k and still rolling fine.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pirate Labs says:

    Ray, you put the oil drain plug back into the oil pan before you added the fresh oil? I guess this was not videoed at a quick lubrication franchise place? Your place does it differently evidently, ha ha.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick V says:

    You gotta laugh. The guy doesn't mind a safety issue like a bad control arm bushing. He just wants the car to be quiet.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Censorship Sold Separately says:

    Glad I'm not the only one that grabs a torque wrench to change oil

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars scott17818 says:

    not everyone has $300 to drop on a control arm bushing, at least he knows its in need of replacement. and may bring it back on the next time he has funds.. although the aerodynamic mod says he doesnt care too much.. eventually the bushing will completely fail, and he will wonder why his tires are smoked..

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick says:

    “Like a golf ball” lol

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CiscoWes says:

    "aerodynamic feature… like a golf ball" lol I almost spit my water out

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr Freeman says:

    Probably the bearings, easy to confuse with brake grinding and can be intermittent.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donnie Robertson says:

    Ok

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrAcuta73 says:

    You actually torqued an oil plug? Wow…I mean, yeah, you should…but who actually does?

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mighty Mouse says:

    It should be illegal to let the guy drive out of the shop

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jr Jr says:

    Seen to many drain plugs striped out due to jiffy lube walmart type places that there guys dont care use impacts to drive them beyound tight nice to see you not over tighten the drain plug

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frank Sattler says:

    Disappointed. No UH OHS! LOL. I love it when you say, "UH OH!"

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ace says:

    Torque wrench on the drain plug? Quality tech.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 14725800369 says:

    well I had too on my car and I still have it. Metal grinding noise like your braking metal on metal. Until this day I never figured out what it is. Pads are fine and discs too. It always comes like 30 seconds after you let off the brakes and already started accelerating but only on the first two miles of any drive . Later it could maybe happen but way quieter. Don't know why, there's no braking at this moment.
    Dust shield is fine too and there's no groove in the disc.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Schmidt says:

    AT-205 would have saved those bushings if he had sprayed them 10k miles ago

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Snyder says:

    The faith people place in just doing an oil change. smh

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doyle smith says:

    Surface cracks.. I don't see an issue. They will look like that when stressed to their max, but their resting position isn't stressed.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen Gomez says:

    I like how you didn't try to sell him brakes even though he thought he needed them. And you can tell it's had the oil change at Walmart or jiffy lube because all that blue loctite on the drain plug for no reason.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars powderrider700 says:

    THOSE BUSHINGS ARE OK…NOTHING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars White Knight says:

    I wouldn’t call those control arm bushings bad when I worked at the GM dealer literally the rubber bushing was detached from the control arm 90% of the time after 30,000 miles.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Buckit says:

    That control arm bushing would pass state inspection unless there was actual play in it.
