    You know I don’t mind a storytelling it’s entertaining but if you could please focus more on the work you’re doing and that would be very helpful for instants what size are the bolts that hold the starter in

    I like silicone grease on all my electrical connections keeps the connection sealed and corrosion free

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phillip Pardo says:

    Urgent question: if I blew the fusable link wire, do I just replace it with a wire from the alternator to the starter?

    Just had this same issue with my wife’s compass. Started fine one morning and then go to start it in the afternoon and nothing. Kind of a pain in the ass to change but if I didn’t find this video first I would prolly have broken more stuff 😂 keep up the great content

    Thanks for the tips!!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Davis says:

    When you watch a Saint Bernard come through the cat door. I will never forget that one and try to use it as often as possible.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Art Denning says:

    I wonder if you had to remove the air intake to put the vacuum hose back on?

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffery Bye says:

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lawi says:

    Clearly, the starter failing at your shop bothered you. Sign of an honest man.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars turner0224 says:

    A great video, learned about push, push push child birth. Learned about what a degenerate you were growing up. Very nice to hear there were others like me ha ha ha

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joshua Gomez says:

    The alternating alternator hahaha You make me laugh thank you.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joshua Gomez says:

    Bahahaha the random turn of that conversation… lol

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars G Sims says:

    I pulled you up for the first time, as a woman that doesn't work on cars I am curious to see what it takes to replace a starter. I do own a Jeep Compass, and believe that I need to replace my starter. Doing my research now, on cost of part, and labor. Love your story telling, although I get the impression you could have been a good doctor, due to your desire to know how things work, and fix them. So many parts to remember. WOW.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan Alan says:

    Call for assistance, "what are they going to do? Show up and fix it for you" 🤣

    German Shepard through a cat door!🤣🤣🤣

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thad Machia says:

    Another great video! 👍

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! John Evans says:

    I thought I had lucked out when I found this vid as this is exactly the job I need to do this weekend. But after watching it, I'm not sure I can use it as a reference … I can't watch more than a few minutes without my eyes filling up with tears of laughter – I even made my wife watch it. "…When you watch a St Bernard come through the cat door.." almost killed me.

    Pugs are great 👍. The funniest dogs 🐕

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sj S says:

    For future reference when there's someone doing this in dead of winter in a windy parking lot just so you know…you talk way too much. Get to it.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars trangia94534 says:

    Try using a short section of garden hose on the negative battery terminal for protection.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Bos says:

    Sitting here getting over the covid and feeling like crap. Wife and I watched this video and laughed our asses off all the way through it. thank you for makin my day. Honest, talented, and funny mechanics are hard to find.

    I've fathered four kids and this is the first time I've heard the TACO thing.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars robert w says:

    I had a crankshaft position sensor fail on mine when I brought it in for an oil change at closing time, got stuck in the bay hahaha…. I was actually pretty pissed all they would do is push it out into the parking lot… never had a lick of trouble until it died there… true story…

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Darrell Hazy says:

    when ever I call snap on they always send kits for me to fix myself

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Sanders says:

    You don't have to lose your customer for life maybe that customer is not ready for such a heavy bill maybe you can break it down in payments and keep that customer for life and still get your money

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jordan Campbell says:

    Lmao I I resent that Italian statement lol 😆

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Hall says:

    Another better late than never comment: I have German Sheperd that lives next-door down. Does nothing but yap all day and sometimes at night. The neighbor and I have his big privacy dog-retaining fence between us. Since they moved in the heard of deer that used to come to my yard daily are no longer coming around. Hell, if I couldn't come around anymore, I wouldn't either. So, I know how you fell about the yappers. Hey man, Take Care, ASH

    Let's talk about cars not about babies being born .

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thebulltoo says:

    I hope he remembered the pvc hose.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars reggie jenkins says:

    Man I don't normally watch videos but this was awesome , I actually learned more about loosing license (my son) and giving birth (my ex wife ) then putting a baby back in the womb …. almost like R/R a starter into a jeep compass. That was excellent . Great job…….

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Opray says:

    well done Sarah

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars U.P. Driver says:

    Eric, as with any vehicle "SHIT HAPPENS" Don't let it bother you. I went to tune-up a 1978 Datsun 200SX, pulling it into shop the transmission went out. It was all on camera so I was covered.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Allister Denyer says:

    Just done a Mitsubishi Lancer 2009 with the big 2.4. You have to pull back the air intake manifold. very similar design. but tighter quarters. Same problem.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Busy Joe says:

    The patience of Job. 😃

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Larry Fine says:

    I asked myself why Eric would be filming a basic starter replacement. Question answered. Great video
