    Great diagnostic video Ray. Thanks for showing us the simple but thorough process to arrive at an accurate diagnosis. It is a pity that the proper diagnosis was not done before others decided to randomly replace parts.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars White Trash Bandit270 says:

    honestly man…a short video is good once in a while!

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SonofEdmund says:

    First video of yours I've watched, I think I'm subscribing!

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Arcane Kingo says:

    This was awesome. The to the point diagnostic and testing takes a level of mastery

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Harry Ellis says:

    Ray the mini was a bad design the thermostat stays closed blows head gasket we had one with 15,000 miles on clock needed head gasket load of rubbish I worked for BMW at the time

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JD RS says:

    Sir, did you check to see if the engine computer had a bent or broken off pin????

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Grosser says:

    I think that the best way to fix all the problems with this car is to take it up to about 10.000 feet and drop it on a flat rock. I never did like them.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JD RS says:

    Engine computers and other electronic control modules should all be mounted somewhere inside of the vehicle cabin, where it’s cooler when the AC is running. I always thought mounting electronic control modules in an engine bay, or under the plastic cowls, is a terrible idea. …and what’s worse, some “American” car manufacturers love to mount them on the chassis; like, underneath a vehicle, where the rain, snow, salt, mud, and other sediments, will most likely nuke the electronics of your vehicle.
    What an idea!!!!!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AQSKY says:

    the pins looked rusty on the computer .

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tedmich says:

    its a MINI VIDEO, of course its short,! No apologies needed Ray!

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michiganborn says:

    Just now subscribed after a couple of test videos.
    15 years ago I had subscribed to 3 YouTube mechanics.
    • EricTheCarGuy
    • Scotty Kilmer &
    • Chisfix.
    Eric lost his shop so he won't be putting out videos for awhile.
    Scotty went lier bat shit clickbait crazy.
    And finally Chris only put out maybe 3 or 4 videos per year.
    So, here I am.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RIP Zekeo says:

    All that diag was wasted when you didn't clear the code…

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jenny Baker says:

    signal wire and power wire

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aaron Snowden says:

    Glasses look great.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CCdude says:

    Ray you hook up Mini to scanner and hit automatic. ah with 3 pedals I don't think so……….

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Parris says:

    I watch these for fun…..I think his electrical work is very instructive….

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jordan bass says:

    Vehicles in that condition really shouldn't be allowed on road, how can someone care so little to drive a cart like that

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Toon says:

    DME is bad. Using aftermarket coils are not good to use on a mini. They can screw up a DME.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Burgess says:

    And your using a CUSTOMER'S car to do it. Wrong on so many levels.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Major League Ginger says:

    I'm guessing old cars didn't run the Cam off the belt? Newer vehicles literally don't run without the belt, and additionally many engines will be toast from the belt snapping or coming off

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tedmich says:

    I wanted to thank you for not having wall to wall ads and sponsored stuff! As a result you're wonderfully entertaining!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eileen Heitman says:

    We bought a new mini in 2015. I do the maintenance. At 40k miles the plugs were shot. At 45k coils were failing. That stuck me as weird….of course I replaced the parts as needed and at 60k there were no further issues, excepting a tail lamp circuit failure within a lamp assembly. At 60k the car was totaled…hit by a17 year old kid with his head up his ass. Wife’s ok…little beat up but considering the extensive front end damage to her Mini…she’s lucky and ok. Dave Heitman

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Irwin says:

    What Oakley's are those?

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don says:

    Ray will probably reach 400K subscribers this week. Way to go Ray Ray!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bart Young says:

    I believe the injector is just shut down as a catalytic converter protection feature. Just clear the code and watch the noid light again. It’ll probably work until the ECM senses the misfire again and shuts it down. Also the voltage on the ground wire is probably a bias voltage from the ECM. The fact that you see it at the connector proves the wiring is ok.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew White says:

    Do you ever work on a vehicle without a steering wheel cover? 😂

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars A B says:

    Get rid of the apollo and get a much cheaper autel. You could have easily coded a used module in.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars IronsavE says:

    Congrats Ray. Loving your shows for 2 years….. thanks and looking forward to many more

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blueboat One says:

    I love your videos and watch at least one almost every day. However, I like the shorter ones under 30 minutes. That is because I follow a lot of channels and there is only so much time to watch. Just putting my vote in. Thanks for what you do!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wayne mg tregear says:

    Nice looking glassed it gives you a bigger IQ sir . Mini Hooper.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Rodriguez says:

    The neg injector pulse is gonna be quicker than the Fluke can display most times…

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy Anthony says:

    I betcha that's like 2 or $3,000.00 dollars to replace that e.c.u. in that mini cooper.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lee gunter says:

    Hate working on my vehicles with transitions ! They take too long to clear if they get dark . If you stay inside they'll work but don't work if your windows are up!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J Mc says:

    Awesome vid ,apparently they have a few problems with the minis what with the engine mount bolted to the cylinder head and such. Great commentary and videography, thankyou,best wishes to you, from, Auckland, New Zealand.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Retro Ricks says:

    Best way to fix a mini is to sell it.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Luis Ruiz says:

    What finally happened to the Jag sunroof?

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daddyoh says:

    good diag video,

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Russ Kubes says:

    We knew the igniters and wires were good, because they're blue.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Carsten says:

    Like the diagnostics.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Christopher Mc bride says:

    Wow tht brings back some memories I remember tht I had a test in college in wht u jst did except the light bulb trick lol

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Drew Steele says:

    As a mini owner (and lover of them before I owned one) i just wanted to say that I'm happy you didn’t talk smack about the mini, I love mine and so happy to finally own one, also I love your content 🤘

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Not_trendy.21 says:

    How can I find your repair shop sir rainman?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LonelyPenguin says:

    amazing diag, flawless. keep it up

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars justin weaver says:

    3.1 bulletproof 😂 no

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John LaCroix says:

    TY,,,,,,WOW incredible very interesting super kool ,1st class great info.,, AAAAAAAAAAA+++++++++++ again great video I liked it a lot ,keep up the great work.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Terrance Williams says:

    WOW…I've never seen a pulley come off the crank before but I'm no mechanic either lol. I've heard from quite a few people that the Minis are garbage vehicles and DAMN I didn't now how much until this video. An ECM going out after only 55k miles? I would be beyond furious!

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adrian Heptinstall says:

    3.83 volts is ECU test voltage to see if injector is there or within tolerence from my experience. 3.84 to 5v is not enough to fire the injector, but enough for ECU to test id it's there. Hope that helps, much respect for your videos, learnt a lot from them sir
