in this video I do a full brake inspection on a customers 2014 Toyota Prius and their concern was the loud grinding noise they were hearing in the rear of the vehicle and they wanted the ABS/Trac light looked at too. Two separate problems? I dunno... let's find out!
-Enjoy!

    Some body actually said they would quit because you didn't use or make the break clean sound? Maybe Jan 1st start save the clips of that moment in a separate file. Then Dec 31st next year put out a video of them or some of them files.

    Toyotas speed sensors are finicky as hell.. if youre replacing one and dont get it seated exactly the way they want to be then your abs will go all kinds of funky.. mine would trigger the abs every time only when you were slowing down around 5mph…. So i would be stopping at a light or stop sign all normally then every time right when it got down to 5mph it would go into the abs fart and pedal goes to the floor.. almost ran out in a few intersections…. Ended up reseating the sensors and boom went away.. the codes only said abs short to ground.. no speed sensor codes after i replaced em.. friggn toyotas.,

    Looking at the underside of New England cars, you're more Archaeologist than Mechanic.

    “Ol’ Mr. Jack got in there… Ol’ mehoff…” 🤣🤣🤣. Haha that’s great! Love your vids, bro! They’ve helped my to be a better mechanic, to help me keep my cool when the crap hits the fan like you do, instead of throwing my tools across my yard. Lol! IF YOU CAN DO IT THEN I CAN DO IT! Lol. God bless ya, man!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gerard Gregory says:

    I love how you follow rainman with the brakekleen 😂😂😂

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nate Tallman says:

    I wish you lived in my town. It's hard to find a good mechanic who won't just shoot the parts cannon and charge.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Yaj says:

    Not sure if this was mentioned but on a Prius NEVER open the door with the calipers off unless the battery is disconnected. If you do the piston in the caliper will press out.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Quinn Adamarczuk says:

    Love your show always…. I sure enjoy your truthfulness in all the jobs you do!
    Question tho…. do you even have to turn new brake rotors … to make it right… thanks to you and the family!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Purser says:

    It don't matter what these blankety blank like people think just do your thing don't worry about you thank you blank people God bless by being blank I mean Democrat

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wanda Meadows says:

    In the rust belt there's no such thing as longer lasting brake pads. Seems like by 2022 they would have solved this issue.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hipshot says:

    The amount of crusties in the Northeast is nuts. Montana vehicles are Rusty but nothing like that. Thanks for the content Mr O

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eddie Bear says:

    I love living in the south (NC) I have a 13 Dodge Charger. I do baby my cars and that helps too. I had the rotors turned this year and the brake pads were still 50% so I reused them. This car is all original down to the wipers. Except tires but only because they dry rotted from age. Lol. It is a road trip car. Been all over the country and Canada numerous times. We are spoiled that we can get two or three times the use out of a car than our northern friends.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Today's Project says:

    75,000 miles and its that rotted already… thats impressive.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jacob Haas says:

    You need to get the air powered rear caliper tool. LOVE mine. No threads so there’s no “screwing around” 😂 I’ll let myself out great job Dr. O

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ford nut says:

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BaggedF100 says:

    People are such whiners…. I just like to hear the sheep noise…

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rainer Skogberg says:

    In 30 year I have to take care of same problems here in east Sweden. Best CU paste who stay in salt water is Molycote. Ceep made videos.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Morgan Reilly says:

    wish i was around during the great brake lathe sale. no inspections here we like to wear em to the fins !

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Hancock says:

    I'm pretty sure the EV revolution isn't going to put Eric out of business.. if anything I can see more brake jobs being needed if people are using one-pedal driving and hardly use the friction brakes.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anh Năm Bình Trưng Tây says:

    Did you open the brake reservoir before you compress that brake caliper piston, dude?

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anh Năm Bình Trưng Tây says:

    Doesn’t your garage have a lathe machine to mill out those brake discs dude?

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars shay stern says:

    "mr. mehoff"?🤣 fine troubleshooting.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnny Hawk says:

    GOOD STUFF!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars G. Fortin says:

    Nice quick n dirty.. or quick n rusty.. troubleshooting. Cool Eric !

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dlaitch says:

    I notice the rust on a lot of autos you work on. I had a 2000 Malibu bought in 2004 with 121,000 KM (73,00 miles) that I drove for 14 years. Used to undercoat with Rust Check every couple of years with virtually no rust when I traded it. This stuff is messy (drips) but saves your frame and exposed brake & fuel lines ,etc if someone plans to keep their vehicle for a few years.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen Deming says:

    Mr. Meoff 😂😂

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sandra folsom says:

    That’s pretty specific fella! Hilarious!

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

    I would catch you on the insty of I knew what that was.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hubjeep says:

    2012 Prius, ever since it drove on a low pressure tire, the traction control light and maybe another one came on. Can I shut it off myself?

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

    Eric , you mentioned Jack Mehov , that was my great grandfather's name from Russia, I think. Couldn't have been the grandfather from Finland he was Harry Areola.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mad max says:

    LOVE YA ERIC!!!! YOUR A GOOD MAN.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Seligmann says:

    I was worried the brake clean theme ran into some copyright bs! Continue on sgt O!

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Chiodetti says:

    Never ceases to amaze me what salt does to vehicle components.
    Looking forward to part two and…….

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mark Roper says:

    I think new drivers should see at least 15 or 20 of your videos!! Educate them about the way things work and help prevent them from getting ripped off in the future. Good stuff sir!!

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jondoef says:

    "In case of fire, freak out and run like hell!" LOL Love that sign!

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Logical Guy says:

    I will be looking out for the follow up videos, I enjoy your content being a gear head in the Midwest salt belt myself. i would not know how to behave working on a car from Phoenix or Texas. Must be nice.

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don Goff says:

    the upside of being an honest mechanic with regular customers. If it's broke, fix it. rock on. Thanks for another great video
