    All I do on my nice new shiny phone is watch rainman ray. I've always worked on cars, but I want to do it as a job. I've done a lot of side work for friends and co workers. Thanks for enlightening me on what I wanna get out of my adulthood. I was in HS too in 2002 as I heard from another video you mentioned. So I'm gonna start late in the field.

    Hey, I came across your channel the other night, really enjoying watching your videos you seem from what I've watched so far like an honest decent man! Thank you for being a good mechanic and using your knowledge for good and not evil.

    engineers try to figure out how to put a vehicle together, , other engineers figure out how to make last until it ain't covered under warranty. engineer how to fix it=0

    I love that moment when it switches to slow mo because you know SOME SHITS ABOUT TO GO DOWN!

    Lumins, il LUMIN ate. Works for me.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars VB says:

    Lumens is okay to use, here is a definition – The definition of lumen is: “a unit of luminous flux in the International System of Units, that is equal to the amount of light given out through a solid angle by a source of one candela intensity radiating equally in all directions.”

    Why didn’t you just un bolt the exhaust

    Chevy: we make our cars hard to repair to create jobs 🤪

    so your use is fine

    lu·men1

    /ˈlo͞omən/

    nounPHYSICS

    plural noun: lumens

    the SI unit of luminous flux, equal to the amount of light emitted per second in a unit solid angle of one steradian from a uniform source of one candela.

    You buy a desiccant packet and it comes with an ac condenser. Sounds like a great deal.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roger Nolter says:

    Love the videos. I was working on my wife’s car (courage taken from your videos) when I was really frustrated in trying to get something to work. Stopped for a minute and asked WWRD (what would Ray do). Came up with an ingenious fix and was very happy. Better yet my wife was happy which is way good. Thank Ray! Dodedodedo.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GARY OSBORNE says:

    That WAS a cute little angle.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy Pack says:

    It's absolutely ridiculous, how a vehicle with such little miles, needs this kind of work done to it. Vehicles are just made to be total garbage now! It's awesome that Ray can turn garbage into treasure! 😁

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Albert Rinker says:

    You did not have to mess with the subframe at all bro all you had to do was put a jack under there and remove the motor mount bolts and jack up on the engine and you would have had plenty of space to work that compressor through there I have done it before

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles Burroughs says:

    I'm from Alabama and I live in Minnesota now. (don't ask). So it's enjoyable to hear you say y'all. You never hear it up here. I was in the Electronic service trade up until I retired and I really admire your work ethics. I was like you. Always going the extra mile for the customer. That's what it's all about. Keeps people coming back. Keep up the good work man!

    When replacing compressors, an oil balance needs to be performed.

    Literally 30 seconds after you mention an ad break i had on.

    I got a ad after the cut

    Some bumper covers are a lot of work to remove, it varies by make and model.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Christopher Norris says:

    Nice job. Love watching your videos. Did you put the little screw bar back in as did not see it??

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fimbulvarg says:

    Coating the condenser is actually a smart move. It rules out one of the tree required factors for electrochemical corrosion to occur. These being:
    1) An electrode potential e.g. from the use of different materials (or alloys in this case; must be electrically conductive).
    2) Electrical contact between the different materials.
    These two are always present in modern condensers and radiators because of the way they are made.
    3) An electrolyte, like water.
    All three conditions must be met for this type of corrosion to occur.

    The condenser will of course condense water from the air while the AC is running, so a coating it rules out one of these factors. The other two, as mentioned before, are not reasonably avoidable

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J L says:

    Did you even check the low pressure switch before you replaced the compressor?

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Enrique Avalos says:

    You either forgot to put the o rings or you left it out of the video

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don Parker says:

    I have a Terrain, which is the illegitimate step cousin of the Equinox. Now I know what it takes to replace a compressor in one of these. NO THANK YOU! 😳 I'll be happy to take it to a garage.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dennis Boyer says:

    Good job which is a kind of well yeah what else? or run of the mill? Anyway thanks for the instruction on how to do it. Debo

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Henry Duke says:

    With that Less Miles on that vehicle Chevrolet should pay for the parts and labor I had a Chevrolet Equinox worst vehicle ever on

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Peters says:

    I believe the black anodized coating improves heat transfer.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Cohen says:

    Actually I think lumens are more accurate candle power is an arbitrary measurement depending upon where you measure the light output.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Josh Prater says:

    Dude I wish I was rich, I’d ship my beater to you to fix it all up. You’d hate me but I’d have a fixed up silvereeerado.

    Remove engine it would be easier.

    Lug nuts are swollen? With only 42K?

    You could took the alternate out then came out. Had same problems

    "A cute angle" is a rather obtuse pun. It's not right!

    An ad appeared just before you said, "Welcome back from commercial break."

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars shaolin224 says:

    I wonder if those inflatable bags used to jar open car doors, by locksmiths , would have been useful in separating the subframe from the engine so you can use both hands.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ᄌᄄᄋᄌᄒᄆᄅᄄᄋᄋᄃᄒ says:

    "More lumens" is correct. More lumens means brighter light. "Candlepower" is becoming an antiquated expression considering it is not, nor has it ever been, a scientific measurement.

    Good ole shitty crossover technology that totally sucks…..no way a part like that would've went bad on anything other than a wonderful crossover lol

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars H Sal says:

    What caused it to fail at less than 50k mileage?! Was that not warranted?

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chris hood says:

    Still no commercial lmao

    Ray,
    You're "acute" too!
