    My dad (mechanic) always said… Fully on or fully off that way you don't forget to tighten something. He had a close call with lug nuts he hand put on but had forgotten to tighten and ever since then he abided by his rule above so there was no room for error. If its fully on then its there to stay and if its not then it reminds him he still has do to it but there can be 0 mistake because its not on partially and not tight.

    My dad said; "A good mechanic is not one who makes no mistakes but one who knows how to correct his mistakes and learn from it."

    Actually, the worst thing I can think of is locusts with a nuclear weapon, but irregardless…

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars colin ellicott says:

    Self check – we all make mistakes … no truer words. Kudos!

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Amature Technician says:

    This why I put paint marker over every bolt I touched after torquing it down

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars robert chaffin says:

    Ray you seem to have left your temp gauge in that ferd F150 with the bad temp sensor.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stan S says:

    Did Ray say that he likes OVERKILL or OVERSPILL?

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Trevor B says:

    Youre a good man Ray…and one hell of a Technician

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eddie Patterson says:

    I like your honesty we’re not perfect we make mistakes everyday like your work ethic. I like the way you degreasing the undercarriage. Was that plain water or what cleaning solution you used and that AC device what is the name of it and where did you get it?

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Red New says:

    Had to use the AC cleaner because he used up all the brake cleaner😂

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars terry harvey says:

    Mistakes happen, but by checking your work, NO one knows about it but your and a few of your friends watching this video. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm not gonna tell on Ray. The customer doesn't have to know, nor does he have a puddle to worry with. NO HARM, NO FOUL. GOOD JOB RAY.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brad says:

    One time a guy I worked with forgot to tighten the cap, and fuel inductioned his face.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars T18skyguy T18skyguy says:

    Good honest video. I'm an aviation inspector/mechanic, and we're very careful about distractions, but when it does happen we call it "broken work". One new mechanic put an air filter in backwards on a Cessna, causing it to crash on take off killing 4 people. So we always say never start any work on an aircraft that you don't finish, and if your not sure ask somebody.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Emmanuel Fayad says:

    You also forgot to use a flare nut wrench spanner to tighten it.
    PS: Your videos are awesome to watch!. Thank you!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheCrakkle says:

    Doughnut LOL.
    At least you double checked 🙂

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Robison says:

    It's not a mistake if you catch it yourself

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pork chop says:

    Hey ray, your human!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars heyitschino says:

    Ray ray u got a link for the flush kit canister??

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RuralTowner says:

    Small oversight…just like a rag in the lifter valley.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark D says:

    good call sir

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GROG SMASH says:

    I would say you caught it on the "R" in "STAR" (STOP, THINK, ACT, REVIEW)…

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel McDermott says:

    I’ve been the customer of someone who’d been distracted. He forgot to finish tightening my air intake manifold.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Haag says:

    have you ever heard of the ozone layer…I am guessing not the way you spray the brake clean and other chemicals around

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Haag says:

    Mr.O always checks his work, I guess you have to go to upstate New York for good service

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jimmy, Making it work says:

    Great advice Ray! Even the best mechanics can make mistakes, but the best also are more careful and realize it's possible. 😉

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don Gillespie says:

    Ever do that again 🤔

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brad Dempsey says:

    Great video with a very important message 👍

    It takes a real man to admit it when he's made a mistake, good on ya mate

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Underground Lair of the Squankum says:

    Just a week ago I made a boo boo, because I was stupid tired. Changing tie rod boots, had to get it to an alignment shop the next morning. Forgot to tighten a tie rod jam nut and found it later when I checked.

    We all make mistakes but I try not to work tired or in a hurry, and of course, check things.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Carl ODonnell says:

    that was overspill ha!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Carl ODonnell says:

    In some cases people only get to make one mistake and it is their last, like a new learner driver having a bad crash and dying.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BRAVEHEART says:

    Those aerosol cleaners are deadly poison, wear a mask.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Dyckman says:

    Ray, you have my admiration for your work !!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars iqs0548 says:

    will there be the rack replacement video

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 01Lightning Truck says:

    Your honesty and integrity are only surpassed by your ability to provide interesting content. I might have missed it, but where do you provide this level of professionalism? I am moving to Fla, and it would be nice to move close to a great mechanic

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phillip Dewitt says:

    This shows the value of cleaning residue after repairs to easily find oversights.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Randal Bloomquist says:

    The super douche under car cleaner!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phil Seiden says:

    Kudos for the Mea Culpa!

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Laing says:

    It looked like a loose subframe bolt there too?

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Foell says:

    Great point Ray. I'm an electrician. We do a lot of automatic standby generators which involves re-routing and changing a homes main electrical feed. I always check all my connections to make sure they are right and tight before i restore power to the home. I also go over all the connections inside the main electrical panel before i finish. Countless times i have found loose or broken wires even though i didn't touch those particular wires. It only takes a minute and it may save a headache in the future.

    what did Father Petey tell you to do for your penance?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Not the one says:

    I'm the same, to the point that I feel I have some compulsive disorder to repeatedly check my work to make sure its 100%

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nicola Fachin says:

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Savage says:

    It's not like you sent a rebuilt engine out with the crank in backwards…..

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daryl Morgan says:

    Good call Ray. Even the best make some mistakes and you are honest about it. So simple to bypass one little thing doing mechanical work
