    I love a clean engine bay. I like tire foam and then the hose to make surface parts shiny real quick.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Ventura says:

    Surprised you didn't pit a new belt on when you had all that out of the way.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dale Eather says:

    🤩🤩🤩

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Simon Hams says:

    And sometimes you have to fix the second problem to find the first problem. Haha.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scrapsteen Life In The Forks says:

    I like pumping up the coolant system with lots of pressure and blowing out worn hoses and thermostat seals.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mrstevepace says:

    Ray that hose protection sleeve looks very similar to what we used to protect cable looms in aircraft. A tip to remove or move it is to push it together and shuffle it. This relaxes the weave and allows the tube of material to open up in inner diameter, when you pull on it the opposite occurs the weave closes up and it contracts around whatever it is over. Its a bit of a faff to do but we didn't have the option of digging into a cable loom with a knife. Great video as always

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars xuser48 says:

    Is that engine bay build for a V12 since there's so much space between the fan and the radiator?

    I have scissors in my toolbox

    Wednesday the seventh of Sept. my son purchased a 71 Ford f100. It has 68 thousand miles on it, It is a 302 ci, automatic, after market air and an am/fm/tape player. A great looking old truck except the paint is Texas sun burned. Looking at the van you are working on and looking under the hood of that truck it is sad how much stuff they have added.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LifeOnWheels says:

    It didn’t need a radiator……

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Walker Ashcraft says:

    Tom Macdonald in the background.. Man. He is asking to make somebody mad.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Syrnian says:

    A van is a machine, so 100% machine.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SpEd says:

    Ok, I'm only a little over 3½ minutes in, and I see a potential long term problem here. When Ray was over at the radiator hose work area, he panned over the radiator cap opening that clearly had green anit-freeze, but it had either Dex-Cool in the overflow tank, or the water in it was some sort of rusty brown, possibly both. Ok… back to the show…

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ChiefR Games says:

    Nice and Shiney

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Wolfe says:

    I would love to see a video of tracing down an emissions problem in a 2002 Toyota Tacoma. Probably not in Florida. I wouldn't think Deathsantis would have any emission requirements in that state.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Rasmussen says:

    Wouldn’t 3 lines at once be doodleydoo cubed?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MISC BITS says:

    That truck is a carpet steam cleaning wagon. The pump in the back is usually powered by a small car engine (which also heats the water)

    Adding to the confusion there's usually a separate one way water circuit for the cleaning system to the vacuum head

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars livingdeadbtu says:

    I don't know what that was, loud noises… followed by congratulatory clapping… musta been good!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jaden Sanchez says:

    Dude went ree

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dirtyharry70585 says:

    hope you watched for leaks before wash engine.:)…3phones meant you got CUBED

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars robert hawkins says:

    OMG, Your washing the engine without makeing sure water does not get into an electrical wiring connections. your encourageing rust and corrosion to form in the electric system wireing.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brett Scott says:

    Dude yall do motorcycle alignment… thats righteous.

    UV Dye is much faster, just sayin.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Borrego says:

    I must have missed you putting the PCV back on during repair, after you pointed out the error code that might bring the vehicle back in if forgotten….

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave and Liz Wadsworth says:

    Is there a reason for not replacing the belts while you had it opened up?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen Dumont says:

    Truck mount carpet extractor…

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe snider says:

    Damnit bro. While I really do enjoy your videos. Truly, they bring a smile to my face and I can listen to you effing monolog while I do my job. The only thing that is killing me, is the Phone in the shop. Every time and I mean every time I hear it ring I start saying "do0dled0odleydoo0" and for that I hold you solely responsible.

    But Thank you for the content man. I do appreciate it. I also bought stock in Break cleaner.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Will Mann says:

    Run the machine in the back and make sure the heat exchanger is not leaking into the radiator system. It can overpressurise pressurize the coolant system.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars o0O-JD-O0o says:

    You should tell the guy his hose is hosed 😁😁

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jean Meslier says:

    Screw clamps used to be very good. First they were made of chrome plated spring tempered heat treated steel. Cheaper ones weren't chrome plated. These last forever. Then the best were made of stainless steel. These also just lasted. The laat box of screw clamps I bought were soft mild steel. I was able to buy some good ones at the parts store, but soon those gave way to the soft steel. The way Ray bent that back over the screw showed that these clamps are soft mild steel.
    I rarely say the old stuff was better, but this is one time I will.
    I had a lot of the Good Ol'Days. I like now just fine, thank you. I will be 83 in 4 months.
    Cars earlier than 1980 should only be driven in parades.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rafael David Rey says:

    Could have slided the protective net to the other side of the hose, seems it had plenty of room there

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob Achmann says:

    I know the engine bay is basically open to the outside environment, but what about all the electrical stuff & sensors when flooding everything with a hose? It doesn’t matter, I guess?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Stauffer says:

    Same applies in the electronics industry, the first problem is almost always created by the second problem.

    i like starting on the hardest mode it gets easyer when you lower the game mode

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Hall says:

    What about water spots??

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

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

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scypheroth says:

    funny about the water hose used for the coolant…..ive worked at every dealership in my city and that is all what they use to mix there coolant 50/50 with straight out of the garden hose

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ronald Mills says:

    I hate working on vans. Almost rather see a mini roll into the shop.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jaysun Kreuze says:

    I know you are in Florida but your accent says you are from Michigan. 😀

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aaron Gurtler says:

    Why no brake cleaner Ray? Your arms got all oily…

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jaysun Kreuze says:

    Dear God, I wish people would delete the fan clutch in these vans and go electronic fans. It's ridiculous having to remove a bazillion parts just to remove a fan shroud.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kelly Stoffers says:

    What has been your most difficult diagnosis?? Most difficult repair?? Most stubborn part to replace, hubs are a pain, but what else?

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andy Saunders says:

    So how much was a genuine GM radiator?

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kash says:

    Customer states, “engine is wetter now than when they brought it in.” 😜

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kash says:

    I see van, my brain says, umm nope. Kudos to your bravery on that battlefield. 🫡 I hope you remembered that pcv connection so you don’t throw the dreaded P0170 code.
