    Train wreck waiting to happen.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Clamshell SP says:

    Replace the brake booster? I rebuilt hundreds of them at the GM dealer I worked for. That pays 1.5 extra.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dhalin says:

    Crap, that front driver's side shock was entirely bent, lol. Would be surprised if that thing don't just snap out of there completely and go flying through the fender well or something, sheesh. The owner doesn't know that he is literally driving a ticking time bomb, and that driver's side wheel mount is just going to snap one of these days because there's nothing holding it there. Not to mention, the force of every bump in the road travelling through the wheel mounts into the vehicle's frame, adding extra stress to the whole thing. This truck is definitely headed to the scrapyard, won't be too much longer. Sad, because it didn't look like it was in that bad of shape other than the issues Ray pointed out. Throw some new tires on it, repair those sway bar links and the brake system and you'd have yourself a decent truck. If only my 07 Silverado were so lucky, mine has a 2 foot rusted frame section and I'm likely to sell it as a parts vehicle because I don't want to pay upwards of $4,000 to get it back on the road.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Mossop says:

    Did anyone else wince when Ray started picking at the steel cords? Steel tire belts can give you some of the most painful jabs, and Ray just started casually picking at them.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave C says:

    Normal is boring.

    Wtf did tgey quote him

    Back of master cylinder leak into brake booster

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Werling says:

    Bluetooth Link installed on Driver's Side Front?

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gsettlemyre says:

    My thoughts were the same as yours, someone has been here before you, brake work done and no new fluid added!

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Timmons says:

    great job figuring out what ALL is wrong!

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doc Seven says:

    why didnt you use the brand new spare tire on the right front ? letting that right front go like that might be a law suit

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bowtie Guy says:

    So does the shop charge the customer anything for the inspection if no repairs are done?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars American Made says:

    Damn really? Knowing that there are poeple driving on the roads with these POS with all of us

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Gates killed my uncle says:

    And if the guy doesn't fix it, he's endangering every person he meets on the road.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Finey says:

    Just a question. As a repairer can you be held responsible if the released vehicle is involved in an accident, or do you have the "customer" sign some sort of waiver?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars H says:

    Why not call the cops and report this dangerous vehicle? Get a case number for future reference.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mild to Wild RC says:

    Man people just don’t get it🤔Keep your vehicle serviced and in top workin order and it will last sooo long🤯I am still driving my 2005 H2 daily with over 260,000 miles on all original power train and have worn out 4 sets of all terrain tires .Decided to put new wheels and tires for the 3rd time to give a new look😂Paint still like new still too👍

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kenny Love says:

    Wow … the SPARE TIRE looks like "factory issue"! The trucks owner is obviously to Stupid/Lazy/Bum to AT LEAST replace the past worn-out tire with the spare tire. Oh well, that Vacuum Booster wont last much longer, OR, his brakes will fail due to lack of fluid…IF he doesn't crash the truck when that bad tire BLOWS ! I HATE STUPID PEOPLE !!!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars #SEETHEFOREST says:

    Need to flush those brakes wouldn't you say?
    That fluid shouldn't be black

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robbie Norquay says:

    I’m guessing the upper control arm ball joint is worn out causing the wheel to lean in towards the car and wearing the tire out like that? I had the same issue on my 2008 Suburban

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Jay says:

    Here in Australia they won't let you drive it away like that
    Can't believe the state of some the cars you guys have on the roads there

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Peat says:

    Whenever someone brings in a vehicle and opens with "you worked on my car before…" you know they're only looking for a free warranty/goodwill repair and will decline anything else.

    When you see multiple issues which are obviously non-recent you KNOW they've already declined those repairs in the last few places they tried to get other free work done too!

    It boggles my mind that some US states have no safety inspection requirement – then you have States which make the owner of a car responsible for ANY incident their car is involved in (even if they're not present!!) which is kinda the opposite type of silly – some middle ground whereby you need to prove your car isn't an absolute deathtrap seems kinda wise tho – no?

    or is it just that feeling of freedom, knowing that pickup coming towards you might just veer over and wipe-you-out? 🙂

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Boudreau says:

    People like this need a slap side of the head to wake them up

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Boudreau says:

    Pretty bad people like this are on the road and have no idea how much danger they are in

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Boudreau says:

    Hard ti believe these scan tools out of all they can do why can't they tell what kind of vehicle they are hooked up to

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Travis Fox says:

    "Is this thing safe to drive?"

    "No."

    "I'm-a drive it anyway." :/

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars California Volcano says:

    Let’s hope he decided the truck was not worth repairing and scraped it! From what I saw he would not be wrong!

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Q_Jet FantasyGarage says:

    Man, those newer gm trucks are built like junk, that front end is cheaper than a dime store cigar.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars freewill1114 says:

    Customer has no money for repairs. He no doubt has a big screen TV, cigarettes, beer, and other vital necessities. After I made the last payment on my car, I just kept on putting the payments in my bank, instead of the lender's. When I needed a new battery, tires, and just recently a front wheel CV assembly, I had cash available to pay for it. We live on social security BTW. It's a matter of priorities. I just hope I'm not the unfortunate victim of that jerk's lack of responsibility.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruce Meinsen says:

    That's a big money job; perhaps the owner couldn't afford it. Unfortunately, merely driving the thing home to park it until the funds are available is a risk. Tires $750, master cylinder with PBB about $300. $1200 in parts plus markup, labor/tax; probably quoted him $1800. Do the job yourself: $1000, maybe less with cheaper tires/parts.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chrossphyre says:

    Wouldn't you at least put the spare on for the ruined tire? At least that won't explode on him on the way home.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wayne Caffey says:

    I'm willing to bet owner thought was issue with the recent brake job (Ray noted painted was still visible) . Thus thought no need to pay, found out it wasn't and needs to pay. All sudden no need for work.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Graham says:

    Just curious if you rotated the bad tire to the back before sending it away?. Not insinuating anything, just curious.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Graham says:

    I'm assuming they bled the brakes without refilling or the brake booster is leaking internally maybe. Im 2/3 through the video

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sam Francisco says:

    I have my son check his fluids and tire pressure once a month and rotate tires regularly. America's tire does rotates for free and checks tire pressure. Some people do not deserve to own cars being as stupid as this owner is a prime example.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Head says:

    Why not6 offer to put the spare on to replace the one that was worn? I coudn't let him leave without a warning.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joey Turner says:

    never in my experience have i ever seen a drum come off that easy

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Plotkin says:

    Here in California, it's illegal to put that corded and exposed steel belt tire back on the vehicle. This owner is not keeping up with routine maintenance at all and will eventually have catastrophic failure of the differential as the gear oil continues to leak out from the rear cover.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Smilie says:

    I had this EXACT problem for over a year. Took all of the same steps you did TWICE. Then I figured it out. As a side note, if you let enough fluid enter the booster, it will eventually suck through the vacuum and you'll get a smoke that looks like a blown head gasket but smells sweeter.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GhOst says:

    Leak up front from brake booster

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Roberts says:

    Probably just drove it to a used car lot and sold it! 😂

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Waltman says:

    Ya know when people decline repairs, i get it. We all know how money trouble can be. However, its when they continue to drive it in such poor and unsafe condition that I get mad. That car and untold numbers just like it are out there on the road with me, my kids, my family, my friends… the stuff that has rolled in anb back out of the shop I work in terrifies me.

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

    I like the Twister line you threw in there. 😀🌪

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Howard Bowen says:

    Yep people may be a bit strapped for cash but that truck shouldn't be allowed on the road. Dangerous.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars immrnoidall says:

    LOL. After explaining that situation they actually asked you ,,,,,,,,"Is it ok to drive"? WOW ,,,,,,,,,,, Customers ask the funniest things.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Neil Felsbourg says:

    The spare looks brand new. Would not want to ruin that by putting it on the front end with all those missing parts.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Valve Geek says:

    2 or 3 years ago I took mine into the dealer for a service, they found a broken spring, didn't have spares in house, wouldn't let me drive it away to bring back later! In the UK, if the police saw those 2 tyres it would be £5,000 fines (£2,500 each) and 6 penalty points on your driving licence (get 9, and you're banned).

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John King says:

    TPS is indicating tire low pressure.

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Murphy says:

    I'm not gonna get into customer is a bleep and a bleep'n bleep!
    Just a great diagnostic video!
    THANK YOU!!!!!

  50. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kenneth stewart says:

    I ve noticed that about half of your repairs are done on GM vehicles , says something about GM quality

  51. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars don says:

    I can't believe how easy those drums came off, up here in salt country (Canada) that would require a can of loose-nut, a puller, and the favorite sledge-o-matic!
