    Why didn’t you flush the cooling system before you put a new radiator in ? There’s a lot of stuff that you could’ve done differently/ better. You have the tools and new parts. You probably have a funnel also. I don’t understand a lot of what you’ve done. Overall, ok, but you can still learn…

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Kennedy says:

    Hands up everyone! How many of us have tub/boxes/drawers of misc fasteners, as opposed to Ray's hunt and search for the elusive one bolt he needs? Instead of various handy tools, maybe we should be sending a gift package of asst bolts

    Subarus are very popular in Australia. The 'Brumby' 'Forester' & 'Outback' were designed for the Australian conditions. They were clever in filling a niche market as the Aussie made/Aussie designed vehicle market started collapsing, and there was a big hole in choice for semi rural vehicles that could handle Aussie conditions.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack O'Neill says:

    Given the state of the rusted fasteners, I'd have liked to have seen Ray put antiseize on the new ones. I tend to use it on pretty much anything I have to take apart.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Nasto says:

    I’ve heard that doing a clutch on a WRX is pure joy, but I digress.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ozmaen says:

    yep they sell the Outbacks here in Australia

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Florida or bust says:

    Good reach around for the customers

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Geoff Townsend says:

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars onewire59 says:

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Haytham BuKhadra says:

    I thank god day and night that i know how to work on my car.

    They say the road to Hell is paved with good intentions, lol.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike 0557 says:

    Should have just replaced both AC hoses. You don't make money replacing O rings and valve cores.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dark_Light MC says:

    Subaru's are notorious for bad a/c compressors, buying I second hand one is a terrible idea.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rashodeen Yassim says:

    With a new radiator installed, they should have let you install a new thermostat, i enjoy watching your repairs.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Random Rich Z says:

    welcome to NY salt problems lol

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Mea says:

    If only, all belts and compressors were that easy to remove……

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Salty Creole says:

    …Niply bits.. , lolol! Next buys: right angle impact and ratchet wrench.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Green says:

    Oh my God it's so refreshing to see someone do stuff right and not rig it

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark De Roche says:

    Ever Wonder how other technician get away with that ?
    Don't take the job if the customer is not going to pay to do it right!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Marr says:

    Love your videos. Keep them coming, please.
    Nice job as always, on your work.
    With the rust that you encountered it is surprising that nobody these days, puts a drop of oil on the threads. I always do, and have never, in 59 years, had a bolt, a lug nut, a spark plug, unscrew itself. But when I wanted to remove such, it didn't 'talk back' to me either. I'd also like to see you use a funnel on the liquids. You look sloppy, spilling all over the place. You can get very nice, flexible tube' funnels at the 99¢ Store.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Eichelberg says:

    Some Subarus are built in Indiana

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars H4RD2 says:

    haha the reaction when you saw the battery, was so funny..

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Patrick Powers says:

    What appalling engineering – little forethought for repair.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Lowry says:

    Geez! He said this is a 2014? My 2004 Tundra and 2003 Sequoia both have engine bays and parts in better condition.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Tyttuutface says:

    A lot of USDM Subarus are American made.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Space Cowboy says:

    The word SUBARU is the Japanese name for the big dipper constellation. I tried explaining this to someone who insisted that the car brand with the distinctively Japanese name was actually made in Australia.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael McLoughlin says:

    Have people no shame? I would never bring my car to a mechanic with rubbish all over the seating and floor. You would not go to the dentist without brushing or the doctor without being clean. A mechanic is a professional also.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hunty49 says:

    And maybe the cabin filter….

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Grant Simons says:

    Jesus some people don't take care of their vehicles in the slightest

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DJW1959Aus says:

    Yes these are sold in Australia.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kennedy McGovern says:

    The hardest thing about owning a Subaru is telling your parents you are a lesbian.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruce Woods says:

    Subarus are sold in Australia and New Zealand. I am in Perth Western Australia and have owned and driven a Forester now for over 15 years

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Argle Bargle says:

    A Subaru. I'm surprised you're not doing a head gasket on it.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Argle Bargle says:

    Nothing wrong with used parts, but you need to know what you're buying. The only people that should be specifying 'used parts' are mechanics and others who have the experience to know what they may potentially get. I deliver for a wrecking yard, have many years of mechanical experience, and will be the first to say " don't be stupid, buy new' depending on what you are replacing. That being said, there are many parts you can buy used for your car that have no issue being recycled. Engines, transmissions, body parts, and even some suspension parts depending on mileage.
    Good luck finding them new right now as everything is in short supply car-wise.
    The question you need to ask yourself is whether what you drive warrants a $1000 new part or a $400 used part. How long are you potentially keeping the vehicle? Is the part something that you would consider a 'safety' issue? Lot's of questions to ask yourself and your mechanic.
    Also something to remember is that EVERY SINGLE SHOP marks up the prices of parts that they order, usually to the tune of around 35 – 40%, so purchasing your own parts may be beneficial to you, but unless you know someone in the industry, you will pay retail everywhere you go, which is what the garage does…marks it up to retail.
    This is where diagnostics comes in……if you could diagnose it yourself you could purchase the parts and just have them installed, but not everyone has the skill which leaves you at the mercy of your garage.

    Not gonna lie, when it said "little did I know" I laughed out loud.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ronald tavian says:

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars cliff stockwell says:

    Ray,We have them in both in New Zealand and Australia..

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tictactoe says:

    Subie’s (Subarus) are sold here and they have a great reputation as a reliable car. My only grumble is that the Hybrid Outback doesn’t have a full, let alone an emergency spare tire. They did this to accommodate the batteries for the hybrid. It just has a repair kit, that’s ok if you are in the city, but absolutely not ok when you go off main highways or onto unsealed roads.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Kerr says:

    Yes we have them in australia

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob Sinbob says:

    Yup, Fuji Heavy Industry. Toyota is a minority share holder and the Sabaru BRZ and Toyota 86 GT are the same car made in a Subaru plant in Japan.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Game Thogic says:
