    Good job Ray! Cant wait until part 2. Don't leave us all hanging.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Silver says:

    Well done Ray perseverance wins in the end 👌👍

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LiLRichy says:

    Fantastic work, anyone who has had a tough, tight, and stubborn, problem like that can appreciate the patients and professionalism you showed. I would have been cussing and smashing that thing long before I even got to the point of taking off the heater lines. I had a similar situation where I was bent over the engine reaching into the back and only had enough room to turn my wrench about 1 click at a time on the ratchet luckily my bolt was not stuck like that o2 was, it just took forever by the time I was done both my arms and my shoulders and back were killing me and I was pissed and ready to give up and I still had to do it all over again to put the new part on. Idk how you were able to record and still keep cool with that struggle. You sir have def earned that like button time and time again.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mike noneya says:

    Let me guess. Off camera you had the engineer that designed that motor. Ears burning. LOL

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Sherman says:

    I was feeling your pain, well not physically but mentally.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Yeap Weller says:

    I am a huge long time fan….but any way you can change that new retro 80's intro music? it seems out of place? Just saying/asking!?

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Flying Around says:

    This is the first time I've seen you really challenged by a job. I commend you on keeping your cool under duress.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Philip Ershler says:

    I think you could have a side gig as a movie director. Watching you struggle with this job, made my stomach hurt. You are obviously capable of eliciting emotions in your viewers. And it hurts so good, we keep coming back for more.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Family Yankey says:

    Nice job holding back every swear word in your vocabulary! Nothing better than burning pb blaster smell in the evening. Great job Ray!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars karldingbat says:

    Plus you Need an inductor for them 02 sensors. Makes them a piece of cake to remove.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars PORTLAND DOEBOY says:

    You kept your cool. What a bitch. Well done.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ghost_kat_knight says:

    It's the EGR valve trust me! Had the same thing happen on my Ford. And I'm still fighting it!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars almostfm says:

    Seeing you struggling to get the EGR fitting loose reminded me of getting a pipe removed going to my shower so I could replace the valves that controlled the water flow. No fire, but a crapton of PB blaster and finally a cutting the pipe with a cutting wheel, but I got it out and the valve replaced.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan D says:

    Transversely mounted v engines should be illegal

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

    Yeah, that about sums up all my repair work on mechanical stuff… from 8 screws one would always be stuck and would not respond to flame, oil, thermal shock (freeze spray) or even impact wrenches. Mostly is gets down to breaking the screws off and then welding them back on or cutting the sides of the nut until it expands enough to get free.
    I wondered how real mechanics deal with it. The answer is… any why they can 😅

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ringo B says:

    In the home depot you can definitely get an automatic door closer for the shop. They have so many of them, they'll definitely sell you one🤣Kind regards from germany👍

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars shawn nonya says:

    need a better torch, and when working with exhaust heat is usually first, then work. cheers

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bobsg35 says:

    I forsee that door getting damaged.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Casey Cook says:

    I don't miss the ringer in the background at his old job. Lol

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thomas Jessica says:

    Despite the economic downturn, I'm so happy 😊. I have been earning $60,200 returns from my $7,000 investment every 14days..

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bloodybones63 says:

    The stress is killing me, cause I can't help but feel like it's me in your position. Feeling the frustration. But you handle it well.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ivan F says:

    I've never owned an oxy-acetylene torch. I'm not a mechanic so of course not. I've used my father-in-law's once. It's pretty darn convenient and very quick… but… I'd still suggest you go for an induction heater for cantankerous ferrous fasteners rather than using an open flame. With a powerful enough inductor you can turn a single bolt to liquid in a few seconds and really target the heat to the exact spot you want. Furthermore you only use wall-gas (i.e. angry pixies) and that's real cheap. There are inexpensive versions that are under $500 and pro level ones that are a good bit more. I'd imagine the sky's the limit.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry Newberry says:

    Now is when you get home, from your straining, you develop spasms in your neck that nearly bring you to tears. Been there, done that. Over the years I developed an addiction to Absorbine Jr.😁😁

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars karldingbat says:

    You think that egr was hard, try changing 1 on a Hyundai 2.5 iload van, they make you want to cry 😭😭😭

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars G__o__l__d__ says:

    one hot hour 🙂

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars VidelicetMoi says:

    I could sense the pathos, feel the pain. Many of "us" have been there. Shame on manufacturers for poor engineering with critical parts and accessibility ease.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rene Schickbauer says:

    This felt a lot like servicing my (heavily customized) 3D printer. All the important bits are hard to reach and there's a good chance that some escaped plastic has glued delicate parts together.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lysander Lysandrou says:

    Automotive Engineers should be forced to perform EVERY kind of maintenance on the cars they design.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars trucker 101 says:

    I like the new intro. It is really nice, And the struggle will always be real. Some days will always be better than others.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Patrick Reynolds says:

    I absolutely hate egr and O2 removal in tight spaces

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars To Connect 2000s says:

    Man I feel your pain on this one, I'm not a professional I'm just a guy that has common since when it comes to most things. Your frustrations one thing after another is like me doing a simple job like my brakes…. I get the tire and caliper off and see a credit card width worth of pad left.. Go to replace the pads and notice the new pads are cracked and the calipers are ripped and leaking.. Head off, and get new calipers and brake pads. I install the brakes and calipers put everything back on, tire ect.. and get help to bleed the brakes to find out these are both yes both right and left have a manufacture defect, 1 is cracked and leaking, the other one seized and wont budge after bleeding. Had to remove and return them both also the store only had 1 set so off to another store I go. I get back and go to replace the rotors decided to get rotors while I was at the store. I get back open the box's and guess what the rotors are not the right ones (The guy pulled the wrong ones). BACK to the store.. I get the right ones and back to the house (borrowing a family members vehicle FYI). I get the rotors bced (bced=BrakeCleaned) and on the truck, the calipers back on the truck.. Got the brakes blead and now everything done.. I drive home later that day to see my engine light turn on as I pulled in my driveway, my eyes rolled so hard I almost gave my self a detached retina.. I pull out my OBDII scanner, and it was a P0308… NOPE doing this tomorrow.. F this day…
    After calling around to my people, I was able to get 8 NKG spark plugs, and 8 NGK ignition coils for 100 bucks (I'm a parts guy I find deals) I changed all these out of coarse with a fight of stubborn rubber boots not wanting to release and COME OUT YOU SON OF A BIT…. Anyways.. I will say I've gone from 11.2 MPG to 14.7 MPG since I changed these…

    Days like this suck.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Wellman says:

    Man. That was almost as painful to watch. I just got done with an 7 hour call to get SSH enabled on a custom container for Next.js framework. Still doesn't work.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron B says:

    The engineers who design these vehicles deserve a good flogging. This is the type of job that separates the men from the boys, I’m in awe of your ability to break jobs like this down to bite size steps and spit out quality results. You are winning.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Halls says:

    And you have yourself a great evening

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

    If you think that lambda removal is scary try 10 year old glow plugs….

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars stephen39a says:

    What a struggle, well done in getting do far with all the hurdles in your way!

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars julius liles says:

    I thought it was great how you went from depinning to all in. It's real world stuff that's totally relatable! A+

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sunbeam says:

    Why I hate V6s!!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Rosicki says:

    Ray , Your ability to remain calm and struggle through that O2 sensor removal with a methodical approach was admirable and exemplary . Having done work very similar to what you do for close to 40 years I could feel your pain all the way up to northern Canada.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Simon Cuthbert says:

    Could you use an induction coil on that?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars freewill1114 says:

    Man, that was an ordeal. The worst car job I ever had was replacing the O2 sensor on my Ford pickup. Required a foot long extender, and I broke a ujoint from my socket set down there. Eventually, I got it, but it was quite an effort, and it was not nearly as bad as what you had to do. At my age now, I leave the mechanicing to the mechanic, lol!

    Youre turning into scotty.. with the video titles.. not a good thing.. lol
