    Just an idea, but why not stop the video after you've done all your testing, and ask the viewer What's Your Verdict? Let the commenters have at it and a couple of days later post the second half of the video. Bit more interactive & challenging

    My Escape was still running great at 255 then the plastic connector to the lower heater return hose broke fifty miles from home. Jimmy fixed it, added a gallon of water every 5 miles. After 5 refills the car rolled to a stop and died. Towed home, fixed line, tried to restart, it cranked until battery died multiple times. Checked plugs, had spark but thought it might be fuel cut off switch but wasn't, Replaced with fuel pump with one bought 3 years earlier thinking it was ready to go out. After watching you give the final rights I finally gave up. I really miss my Escape which was nimble and quick compared to my Toyota Highlander which drives like a bus.

    Sad to see that happen to this rig. I have a 2002 with 205k miles, and still running strong. I replaced the radiator at about 170k because the plastic for the upper hose had rotted away. I had noticed the leak, so the engine never overheated. These are great little rigs, and it's sad to see one die.

    Reminds me of when a local used car dealer was buying auction vehicles and was having them dropped at my shop sight unseen he sent over a Charger with a 5.7l Hemi. It was obvious that it was overheated and no compression on 7 of 8 cylinders. I had a hunch that it wasn't the rings and likely the valve seats fell out of the head. Turns out I was right after I pulled the heads and found valve seats hanging off the valves. Obviously the pistons had very slight imprints from hitting them. Customer was adamant on fixing it so slapped new heads waterpump and misc gaskets and hoses and because I am a performance tech I gasket matched ported and polished the heads and put it all together. Ran nicely and at first shifted nice. I had already done the fluid and filter on the tranny as it was burnt but still ok and I was confident that it was just from overheating and not an already dying tranny. A few weeks later I found the car in my driveway and a note. …. it read you were right the tranny was ok till yesterday and now it has permanent nuteral in all positions. Whats it going to cost to fix…. he learned a very valuable 2500$ lesson. When engine was severely overheated odds are that the tranny is hurt badly and may as well figure that it will need a new one shortly after repairs to engine are done

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KEN MCCORMICK says:

    you do not think that, it is a new way to exhaust the engine. You think "new and improved".

    Hi what was the Honda in there for?

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars markfx12 says:

    $2500 and he has a car with a known history. Can he get a car with $2500? Sorta never understood this reasoning. If it was, say $5K to fix it, alright junk it. Otherwise he is buying an unknown car that might need a boatload of work in the near future.

    Such a shame. It looked like a good vee hickle. I was sorry to give up on my Mitsubishi Shogun (Pajero/Montero). V6 3.0l. When the head gasket went on that, it leaked into the exhaust. Made a horrible smell in the cat. Tried restarting it after inspection and it hydraulically locked up, with water in the left bank of cylinders. Cranked it again, with the plugs out and it shot water into the neighbours front yard. Drove it without water, onto the scrap man's flatbed. Sad day.
