    Hi Eric, I always enjoy watching your videos (my son turned me on to your site) I have a question for you . We own a 2016 Escape 4 cylinder with a turbo with 80,000+ miles and we have no heat. The temp gauge reads mis range as always. Do you have any ideas what I should look at? Thanks Bob from Binghamton N.Y.

    I believe the term you were searching for is "the point of diminishing returns". Good call. Another little saying that comes to mind. Capt. Kirk said it to Spock once, "I trust your guesses more than most people's facts". Thanks for sharing. 😊

    I used a hobby hacksaw to cut off the wiper arm's aluminum bushing. Just saw carefully down to the steel post; then use side cutters and needle pliers to twist off the aluminum remains.

    The original HVAC control unit probably has cold solder joints, and probably came loose with vibrations and movement.

    Wow!!! You actually paid tribute to the late disc jockey, and entertainer Casey Kasem🎙. Thank you for that Dr. O!!!

    I hate to do this Eric O. When you call the people who make the windshield install tools they will ask and you will say. "Yes I install windshields and wipers every day. That's what I do to feed my fambilly". It is half true and you can work on your ethics afterwards like lawyers do in ethics class. Remember Obummer was a Constitutional scholar. What the people did not know was he was only studying it to learn the best ways to circumvent and corrupt it.

    Hey southmain auto I have a 2013 escape and sometimes when I turn the ac on the module it doesn’t turn on right away I sometimes move th middle knob from hot to cold and turn the ac button on and off and that’s how I get it to work sometimes do you think it could be the module as well on mine ?

    I know its not free but its awesome that you will go to the salvage yard to get a part to fix the the customers car. Would love to have a mechanic like you in California. Really like your work thanks.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Acts29 Students says:

    I can’t thank you enough! Saved me a ton of time and money. I had the same issue but I was sure from my research that it would be the actuators. Found your video and $20 and 20 minutes later, ice cold air that comes out of their proper vents now. You’re the man. Thank you so much brother!

    I'm pretty sure the Secret Windshield Installer Society stole the election from Trump, too. Get on it O-Patriots!

    Hi Eric,I think your video's are great, I have a 2009 ford 4-wheel drive escape, the air conditioner blows cold air for about 30 seconds
    then stops and blows warm air, i changed the AC pressure clutch switch, but still have the same problem, would appreciate any advise on what my next step could be, Thanks.

    If I didn't do my own mechanical work, my problematic Mazda Tribute (aka Escape) would send a mechanic's kids to college.

    Graphic reason to NOT buy a FROD

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Taylor says:

    I know this is an old video, but I gotta say; I've got a '14 Escape (looks like about the same trim as this one) and I have had no buzzes or rattles in it at all. I've had used cars from the seventies and eighties and they had plenty of interior noise. I guess there's something to those clipped and snapped components in the newer cars. Thanks for a great channel.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Mills says:

    Unbelievable… super secret windshield removal society… what a bunchabaloney. 🤣

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Bright says:

    When working with plastic, hook and click is better than the bend and snap.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alex Puls says:

    I just wanted to get in there and start ripping trim pieces off. I've pulled apart so many Ford dashes, you can yank on the plastic pieces pretty hard 😂

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frederick Grasic says:

    Being a Ford tech I still see those go bad alot still to this day. Had one with intermittent no operation to one with intermittent battery draws. That's on that style and the auto climate control one.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Oakhill says:

    Once again you produce an absolutely wonderful video, that you think stinks. You can not make a bad video. You are a video genius, and if it feels interesting to you it will be interesting to your audience. Three and a half years after posting this video is liked 1678:12 (140:1) ! It is fascinating to see the amount of force you are willing to apply to the plastic parts. I learned a lot about limits. I also have never seen the removal of plastic from the dashboard. Thanks for showing this to us.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Ellett says:

    If you break those trim piece they are not cheap – did a good sob – and you have patience – a virtue and some tools

    lol oh boy don't know sometimes who out of you or Scannerdanner worry the most about what people think about your way of doing diagnostic work or the need to change parts, seriously as i said to scannerdanner you,ll find you,ll always have someone who disagrees with how you do things. point being you,ll always come across a time where you,ll most likely find it best to poke a hole in a wire to do a test or replace a part to save a client some money,, just Ignore the Nay-Sayers an don't give them the satisfaction of getting to you …..
