    Second time watching

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phil Jerome says:

    I just saw something similar. A friend had the transmission removed and repaired on his Hyundai. About a month later, he suddenly lost power steering due to a leak. Had it towed home, and wouldn't ya know it? The installer left the power steering lines hanging in the breeze and they rubbed / burned through on the exhaust manifold. One missing bolt for the hold down bracket caused an expensive repair.

    And the owner never noticed the alt cable cooking the erg pipe…..??? Ummm where is my engine, what does an engine look like? Maybe the driving licence test could be better designed so people learn some basic engine care info at the early part of driving experience. Good diagnosis Eric.

    That’s why I do my own oil changes . Gives you time just to peek around a bit . Never know what you’ll find . If you use a shop for oil changes , look under your hood every once in a while .

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Molwitz says:

    I found and fixed many problems on my son's Solara related to a sloppy engine replacement (done by a prior owner). Glad that car is gone!

    This reminds me of the shop that did the frame-alignment on my 99 Protegé ES 1.8L. It was a $600 low-speed collision car that didn't have the airbags deploy and didn't claim insurance so it was clean titled. I wanted to have the shop straighten the frame that was bent 4 inches to the left and have them weld on the new core support. They agreed on the condition that I let them rebuild the front end of the car completely. I told them I didn't want that, but they insisted and agreed to do everything for $400. I had already spent $400 in parts, and I didn't want them messing it up but I agreed. No other shop would even touch it. When I got it back, everything was in the wrong place. They even managed to run a power steering line under some bracketing and that was pinching it off, so I literally took everything apart and redid it the way Mazda intended. I also redid some damaged wiring (turns out something had chewed through the airbag sensor wire). So now if it wrecks again, boom-airbags. To their credit, they got it straight as an arrow and perfectly realigned. Take your hand off the wheel at 80+ and it's silky smooth. Their welds were also good, even better than the punch welds done at the factory from what I could see.

    I am fortunate, i live in south Texas and dont see very many of the green wires and rust related failures. I am a tech here. I like your vids because you actually do a diagnosis, and not a guess and the parts gun. I absolutely hate the automotive faith healers. I specialize in automotive electrical and electronic diagnostics. I do engine performance and driveability, but much prefer electrical.

    I think Scotty was a little cockeyed tonight.He got five cars in and out,with just hand tools though. You only got one.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Valdez says:

    WOW lol

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edgar Martinez says:

    Holly 🚬 smokes

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars widgy says:

    One reason it didn't light on fire is exhaust gases aren't exactly oxygen-rich.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Toolman 5862 says:

    I have a 2008 Kia Sportage with po139, there are no vacuum leaks or exhaust leaks, the upstream o2 sensor is reading normally and the downstream reads less than .2 volts most of the time, idle, acceleration, deceleration. The waveform moves between about .02v and .2 volts, is it the o2 sensor or catalyst?

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rodney Hammon says:

    Great!…

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Slee says:

    They inadvertently made an EDM and came so close to getting all the way through.
