    Excellent channel. Love your approach to the job. I really like your sayings on the T shirts. I'm a bit funny in that I only like writing on the backs. Any chance on getting a custom one made? I'm probably a bit funny in other areas too. But let's not talk about that.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Proclaimor says:

    If anyone thinks your hands are dirty, just say you were stacking charcoal in the grill. They are fake dirty. We know you guys were grilling it up for labor day.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Proclaimor says:

    Teach a man to make fish and grits and he’ll never have to work a day in his life. What a racket! Buy fish, buy grits, mix them together and sell them. It’s like running a peanut butter and jelly sandwich restaurant, except the choice is not grape or strawberry jelly but rather fish or shrimp. Darn $12 shrimp and grits! It’s highway robbery.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars k. roy says:

    that was a lot of crap just for a radiator!

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael says:

    ultra low profile tools are awesome. I've had too many jobs that required them.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Hutcheson says:

    did you reattach the trans lines under the car?

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Topher D says:

    I was screaming at you the entire time to lift that vehicle first.. you have to remove the cover, the two bolts you were after, and the lines/brackets/screws anyway.

    And using non factory coolant is likely what has caused their cooling system problems in the first place btw. Mixing coolants even though “they’re the same” is not best practice. I would argue a majority of cooling system issues are caused by 1) not changing it enough and 2) mixing coolants. But since this thing only had water when it came in.. who cares? Certainly not the customer.

    Worm drive hose clamp gravity.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Celydus says:

    Older but much wiser

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chuck Davidson says:

    How-do-you-remember-where-all-the-screws-go???

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R Evert says:

    Might I suggest the metric sledge? 6 lbs or the equivalent in killergrahams! At the very least the unit releases tons (metric) of pent up frustration associated with engineer types!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob Incog says:

    You did the removal and installs skillfully. If I didn't put cardboard between the condenser and radiator I would have punctured one or both 🙂

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Troy Allen says:

    Maybe Ray had a few Heinekens before work instead after work. He said he had plenty of sleep no coffee makes me wonder.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Peters says:

    Woah, when the flashlight fell, my heart sank thinking your parts tray was going to flip!!!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Artiken says:

    If you give a man a match, he will be warm for a while.
    If you light the man on fire, he will be warm for the rest of his life.
    My kid comes home from high school. "Dad, I just heard this brand new song by this band called Aerosmith. Dude looks like a lady." I go to my cassette box, grab "big ones". Shows my kid the cassette, ask them to read the song list and copyright date. "Dad. There is music on that thing? Holly Crap. 1979. That tape is older than I am." I put the tape in the JVC, stereo rack cassette player, just to prove that the cassette's were a real thing and that they sound good. Of course I turned the volume up to 11. The 14 inch woofer in the 4ft tall speakers, beat the hell out of their 3 inch speakers of their portable radio/cd player. lol. Kids loved it. Then I told them that they could NEVER do that to MY stereo. (without my permission) :~)

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DeadEyeDave says:

    It's OK Ray, I bet I'm older than your Dad.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Oscar Leon says:

    I don't know why this bothers me so much but can the shop please buy a hose nozzle for the washing station?!?! The finger method only works so well.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Felty says:

    Good job ray.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Smyth says:

    I have a set of the profile sockets, love them especially when working on stuff that has a long cord!!!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wallace says:

    great effort! u really know what to do!

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Felty says:

    I was gonna say that but?

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars VeritableChris says:

    Lexus and Mercedes, always end well despite the trouble yet always still so expensive to fix.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jared Palmer says:

    Glad to hear you like the same beer as me Ray! Cheers 🍻

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sliding Scales says:

    I love the videos! Keep 'em coming!

    You were asking about audio quality in another video – Can you go back to the old mic please? This new one is better and picks up all the high frequencies from the fans and stuff, and I prefer the other mic.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SSG25URet says:

    Your not old Ray, it’s seasoned and experienced. Wise to the younglings at your work. 😂

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Salty Creole says:

    I'm 65. It doesn't get any better after 45. The bright side is if you live long enough, you get wiser about the stupid crap you dare not do anymore, Some call that maturity. I call it crap. Just saying.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars molotovEOD says:

    After looking at the length of your phalanges, I’m glad you’re a mechanic and not a proctologist!

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dave lento says:

    Hump day Heineken 🤙🍺🍻

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Pressman says:

    By the way when Ray was making fun of the noises co-workers were making by going wah wah wah wah wah it sounded like the adults in Charlie Brown hey have a good day thank you Ray bye

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Pressman says:

    I hate to say it's not you it's the way the engineers to put design the vehicle to go together at the factory and have no concern whatsoever for the people that have to work on it or service it and as far as you know you saying that oh it didn't go as planned hey yours got to have a plan a a plan b and a plan c and I usually pull out enough tools to cover all basis and make sure have all parts cuz I hate stopping in the middle of a job hunting around and the other thing is you got to look at it this way I like getting jobs done and I do them in a timely manner or did them in a timely manner but you're not going to die if you don't have the job today the world's not going to come to an end people put false priorities and stuff that doesn't really mean anything and being in the maintenance and service industry myself I got that kind of pressure from people and I'd say I'll get it done when I'm done I'll do the best I can now turn around and leave I will take care of you have a good day bye

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shivom Maharaj says:

    If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars PossibleDecoy says:

    How do you tell when the thermostat opened?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Stauffer says:

    "we gotta make sure the camshafts are in time" admit it ray you just wanted to get on it lol

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Stauffer says:

    this channel isn't just working on cars, it's a complete experience. tho you should do more grenaded engines 😀

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars blautens says:

    I owned this same car for 13 years and there are so many obstacles in some of the common repairs, it really turned me off of Toyota vehicles.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Smith says:

    no no no the saying is give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day take the fish and tell him he's lucky to be alive and he'll figger out how to have a fish for you to take tomorrow

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars fred414141 says:

    …. anyways, give a man a fish, he has a fish,
    teach a man to fish, and he'll sit in the boat all day drinking beer.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mad Mike says:

    I would have forgotten where 90% of those bolts went and/or knocked the bolt tray down inside the engine bay. Good job bud 👍

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony Freeman says:

    Goodbye Ray.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roderick Harvey Jr says:

    Age and treachery will often overcome youth and skill, Rainman.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shade Tree Mech says:

    You forgot to put back that 10mm bolt that you had to lift the car and get under in front.
