    Good for you! You tried your best to keep him off the road.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Hall says:

    sorry but you should call the police and refuse the keys to the driver if you think hes over the limit, he could kill someone and it would be partially your fault

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Captainf 102 says:

    GOOD VID BAD PERSON U SHOULD HAVE CALLED COPS RIGHT AWAY!!!!!!!

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wes Gregg says:

    Call the cops on a drunk and you prevent him from harming someone for 24 hours – but push him down a flight of stairs and you prevent him from doing so… forever.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Lambeth says:

    At the very least I'd bill the customer a half hour of flag time for the battery inspection and another half hour for the exhaust inspection since you weren't able to get any flag on this truck other than the CEL read & diag.

    Tricky situation! Unless alcohol is smelled, could be a diabetic going into shock, or possible stroke. And being neither a cop nor a doctor, doesn't leave you a lot to work with! Calling the sheriff a good move.

    I'm not a mechanic, I'm a journalist, and can relate to your position of impartiality. That said, I have informed authorities on incidences when there is a risk to life. I saw your follow up post, and good on you. Impartiality is important, so is a duty of care. 🙌🏼

    I do subscribe, and I do like every video I have watched. You're a good man and a good mechanic. You did this guy a big favor and maybe saved someone else's life.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Devin Owens says:

    It’s a 350ci with the two front cylinders cut off basically those motors are bulletproof unless you overheat em. Which goes for most motors tranny not so much.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars billy lump lump says:

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brianfarrell F says:

    Are u liable if he leaves your shop drunk and kills someone I see u said the police are aware just wondering if u have to report drunk people at your shop

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NETWT says:

    I would have called the police and they could follow him out and stop him down the road, or sobriety test right there. You did right to report! BE WELL!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Spenny62 says:

    Had a works vehicle a number of years ago, that made a hissing sound every time you braked (it didn't have air brakes) . It was sent to the vehicle Maintenance Unit who tested it on the rolling road but they couldn't replicate the noise so they sent it back to us. Turned out that the fire extinguisher under the passenger seat had broken loose from its bracket, and each time you braked it rolled forward pressing the trigger slightly. It didn't do it on the rolling road because there was no forward inertia to make the extinguisher roll. Sometimes the easy solutions aren't so obvious.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Collin Byrd says:

    I always go to the leaf spring shackle on those types of frames. Rather not grab the deadman.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Delton Streetman says:

    I was wondering if in his condition that it is just possible that the customer might have possibly been driving the wrong vehicle.
    I would have contacted the local constabulary and alerted them to the condition of the dr. It could have possibly saved a life.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kkovler says:

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Koskie says:

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I'd drop a hint to the police so the guy can be checked out. I would hate it if he hit somebody.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack Hudler says:

    You got shopped. The rattle was the screwdriver.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stefan Mosiek says:

    If that was me, I would have spent an hour or so trying to find the rattle, or test drove it. Would have been more legit and what the customer asked for.
