  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald says:

    I'm sure there's a lot of people that would understand this but your videos need to have more parts to it as in part 1 part 2 part 3 and so forth or make one really long video and don't shorten them down if you have a lot of things to do to a car yes we enjoy watching them but we're not interested in the short videos like long ones or extra parts to the videos so consider that please

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Average Meatsack says:

    Workplace injury? Sue the boss! 😆

    I am surprised you don't have a couple of spring compressors for jobs like this.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars L.No.Solace says:

    I will never stop hating on the equinoxes. I've had to help people with theirs and worked on plenty and they absolutely are one of the worst things ever designed and made. The engines are alright though

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cameradoctor says:

    Rusty Chevy .. am I watching SMA ?? 🙂 Might be why you turned up at Eric's live stream Ray 🙂 After some rust belt tips !

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sergiu Furdui says:

    The tailgate used to do that same reopen move on my Opel aswell, and i thought it was the anti-pinch mechanism detecting something in the tailgate's way, when in fact it was the lower lock had shifted position slightly from the screws, and after i losened the screws and aligned it, the issue went away. In fact, the cluster on that Chevrolet is the same (with different cover plastics) with the one on my European 2009 Opel Insignia CDTi.
    Same graphics, same startup pointer celebration and display timings, same positioning of the dials, the only real difference i see to the electronics is the blue LED backlight for the display, where the one on the Insignia is red.
    Same trunk close button aswell… except when i tried to close my trunk in manual, it went half way and then it blew the gasket on the hydraulic cylinder with a pop sound and it spilled a bit of oil in the trunk and bumper manual was not a feature the Opel appears to have enabled
    Resemblances are probably because GM used to own Opel, you can see the cost reduction

    I dropped part of a steel shelf frame and it caught one of my fingers right on the nail, just like you did. Yes, that hurts to high hell. Fortunately, I was in a position to let out a lengthy stream of cuss words. It did bleed 🩸 under the nail and it took several months before the nail grew out far enough that the black was gone. 😢

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daddyoh says:

    Heard you made an appearance on Eric's What's happening Wednesday?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jimmy S says:

    It would be the timing chains on this engine. It uses the same setup as the 3.6L. I seen the bottom chain failed because its stretched where it throws both banks off timing. Or the bank 1 fails most of the time too. The one towards the firewall. What causes this is the Oil life Montior was programmed for too long of oil changes which they have an update for but that costs money to have a dealership to reprogram it. Then add oil consumption that would starve the engine for oil which gets the chain very hot to the point it will stretch. So folks who owns the GM 3.0 and 3.6 engines get the oil changed at 4000 miles with full syn 5w30 oil. I do not care if the oil life monitor is at 40% or the oil bottle claims 10,000 miles. Change it at 4000 miles and you might be ok with 5,000 mile intervals but oil is cheaper than timing chain work. Also check your oil. Not hard to do. These consume oil because of the PCV valve design. The best way to appoach this repair if it happens is to drop the subframe with engine and trans together. You will get all the room you need to do the work. I feel sorry for those people who own the GM 2.0 and 2.4L engines they have these days. Those motors are pure junk too with timing chain issues too.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ivar Iversen says:

    nooo not another one with the intro please make one that's 5 min long to max out the annoyance 😛

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars courtneyksf says:

    No breakclean. No shiny opps. Very very end of ..

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jafopt says:

    I like the new intro

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jase papageorgio says:

    Smash finger l always soak it in cider.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars seanthecynical says:

    You didn't forget! I saw it during the fast forward part.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Glenn ggward0 says:

    Replacing a front wheel bearing on an 05 equinox in Pennsylvania, we had a tough time as hub was gauled to spindle. A lot of pounding. We broke a1/2 ,inch steel tool getting it off.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Orion says:

    Was quite happy to see you go out on your own Ray, I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars waldojim42 says:

    Man, child labor, workplace injuries. Not sure what to make of this place! 😀

    Seriously though, great video as usual. Glad to see how well this seems to be working out.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ceanothus says:

    You really should reconsider having your wife and daughter at the shop. Too many unmentionable dangers.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Riffraff65 says:

    So how does workman's comp work? Hope your boss is flexible.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Al Niemann says:

    Oh! And BTW, love the new format-intro, video, then time lapse with stock music overlay. Maybe the time lapse part could be set to some 4 non blondes next video?
    Hope that finger didn't shrivel up and fall off or anything. 👍

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Wood says:

    Saw all the rust and thought this was an SMA video.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob Houlihan says:

    You do use a angel grinding cut weel as often as you should?

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnny Lee says:

    I cringed when you bashed your finger Ray! But if you think that hurt, wait until you short your wedding ring to ground or smash it on your finger.. Been there, done that… my personal rule, no jewelry when wrenching. IMHO… LoL

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Earl Scheib says:

    Ray is a C level mechanic, better than most out there but he'll never be a master technician.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Dennis says:

    Good to see you on SMA live feed. You guys are both amazing mechanics. I was thinking you should complain about rust when you see it. "Ah, this bolt is SOOO rusty". LOL
    BTW I found your shop.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JJB says:

    Ok. I've been following you for a while. You seem to be a good and experienced technician. However, I didn't see you us an actual torque wrench on any of those fasteners. Thats shabby man. I understand that over the years we get "a feel" for torque and tightness, but man, when it comes to suspension and bearings, there is little room for error. I've seen what can happen in the past 40 years I have been a tech. Please use a torque wrench and don't guess, people and their families count on your workmanship. If I'm wrong on this, then call me out. But I didn't see it. Just saying.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Sposito says:

    Still wondering if EVERYONE in Florida has flashing TPMS lights? Like noone down there replaces them when they go bad?

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrBowNaxe says:

    Am I watching Rainman Ray's Repairs on YouTube or a big budget movie? The new intro is slick! You're a bigger man than I because there would have been a bunch of "BLEEPS" in my video. Love seeing the (or hearing) the family while you work. That's awesome…best part about going on your own. Thanks for sharing, can't wait to see what's next.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Al Niemann says:

    Way to set the tone for the entire video with that foreshadowing at the beginning.
    "Uh oh. Baby crying…"
    👍

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Erick Foor says:

    poor ray sounds like Kermit when he smashes his fingers,

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lee M says:

    I yelled RAYYYYYY along with a few other choice words that didn’t include ow weee! today I smashed my ring finger working on brakes after watching your video😂- relieving the pressure from under the nail felt so darn good! (True story!)

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chuck says:

    It Always happen when you Least expect it 🤬 [ 313 ]

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Link says:

    Why would the Advance Auto scan tool show about 10K less mileage than what’s actually on the odometer?

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Smith says:

    what an intro, nice

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark G says:

    When you smash your fingernail, squeeze the fingernail for about 5 minutes. It stops the blood from pooling. Ends the pain and saves the fingernail. BTDT many times.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Diaz says:

    Did you lube those pins?

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars fred414141 says:

    joke of the day…… what do you call a hippie's wife?
    ……………………………………………..Mississippi

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars P M says:

    Thanks for the light speed showing of the other side, despite the closing out of the video before you even did it.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eddie Alvarez says:

    Ray I always watch your videos and never comment but I have to for this video…..please please keep that retro introduction in the beginning of this video, I watch your videos when I get back from work, as a UTI graduate please keep this up cause I'm learning a lot from you, much love from me and my family from Northern California

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 111sconeful says:

    Love the new intro, gravity.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bill smith says:

    No blood, no sympathy.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars abcd says:

    It's good to see that you struggle a little bit with the fixing that stuff here lately everything I try to fix on my vehicle is just a big pain in the butt.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Thomas says:

    I going to steal that line from you “ Words, words the things I want to say but cannot. As a fellow diesel mechanic I get it and applaud your restraint. You inspire us to be better and I thank you.
