    What oil additive cleaner are you using?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian McSwigan says:

    Great to learn something new, about a system cars didn't have when I worked on them.

    Back in 2002, me and my mechanic friend did an engine swap, on a 1991 Mercury Grand Marquis. Everything was good except for black smoke coming out of the exhaust. Me and my “ ex” mechanic friend didn’t know, what was the problem. I took it to my mechanic, I left it there, in three hours I got a call that the car was good. Two of the suction hoses were reversed, this mechanic knew, what was the problem, way before, I left my car there. He calls me, i went over there, he charged me 40 bucks. About 64 bucks today. He was my “ trusted” mechanic for 14 years. He was a good mechanic, but not trustworthy.I look at this guy’s video’s he’s very honest, with the customer. Just an oil problem.

    Is a cleaner a flush? if they're different, what's the difference? I wanted to see the draining, why you cut it off, is so satisfying. Why you don't show the Scan Tool collected data? incomplete video

    ALWAYS check oil level BEFORE you do a testdrive

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rodney Haymon says:

    Need more educated mechanics like you out there.

    I can see the first problem it is a Chevy

    Seems to be running cold. Thermostat open, running rich?

    So funny that this particular video came up on my recommends, my daughters car had the same issue , she let her oil get low and she lucky, same day I scanned her car she got an oil change and the light turned off the next day. Before she went out into the wild I did teach her how to change oil and to put on a spare tire if she needs to.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eduardo Garcia says:

    With that mileage on the vehicle, I would imagine it is still under manufacture warranty.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ELA says:

    Good job man

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! David Beanz says:

    Ray, when I worked for Firestone they would have recommended plugs, wires, all coils, trans flush, O2 sensors, cat converter, brake fluid flush, power steering flush, speed sensor, and about $1000.00 dollars of needless other nonsense. When the car would come back, a wiring harness that caused a whole bunch of other failures. Possibly snuck in the oil change which of course not appear on any paperwork. Thus, my tenure was short. They are the worst thieves I have ever encountered. My opinion.

    IMPORTANT! REMOVE TAG BEFORE VEHICLE IS IN MOTION!

    I have a turboed 1.5l 1nzfe in my scion and it’s fun for a little motor

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Talbot says:

    What cleaner did you add to the engine oil?
    Great content on all of your videos. Thank you

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Ciofani says:

    Ray help!!! I have a 08 Cadillac CTS 3.6l di with a p0008 code. I’m wondering could it be the VVT solenoid? The engine runs strong with no other codes coming up when I clear this code, however, it comes back and I can feel the difference in engine performance

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thomas M Leahy says:

    ** Was this the brother of the other guy who seized up his engine, stating he never changed the oil?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Stewart says:

    I am here for the do da do da doos and lumens and gravity, I would watch you rotate the air in the tires you are so entertaining.Compliment CLICK

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles Powell says:

    Would an over fill condition present the same issue? I have a 2012 outlander sport with vitamin. 90 miles after an oil change I got a low oil pressure light. Checked the oil and it was over full. Was about 5 miles from home so I continued down the road. About a mile later the check engine light came on. I don't remember the exact codes but I believed the definition was timing more advanced than expected. Took it back to the dealer that did the oil change and they tried to sell me 3 sensor. The oil pressure sending unit and an exhaust and intake vvt sensor. Since it's odd for 3 sensors to go bad at the same time I decided to take it for a second opinion. The car didn't make it and has been sitting ever since. Had another garage tell me it needs a new motor cuz the timing jumped. The car has 70k miles.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mitch says:

    An engine throwing inaccurate codes which could cost $$$ would benefit from a low oil sensor.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars nhzxboi says:

    Obvious you have a MFG preference. Chevrolet is the only manufacture's name you pronounce correctly. Fird, Doedge, and all that. I am a Ford guy. I really don't like the Browns(Chevy). GM is General junk, IMO. I'm just a Ford guy.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thomas Beatty says:

    Terrific job Ray.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Ventura says:

    It's so important to check your oil weekly and change it every 3000 to 5000 miles ESPECIALLY if you have a small turbocharged engine.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marcus D says:

    Anything GM or Chevrolet is just garbage. You will rarely see Honda or Toyota.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ted Panes says:

    Yes, Ray. Put on your seatbelt. Ask DeiselTech Ron. He was killed on a test drive by a drunk driver a couple years ago.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Walter Butscher says:

    Hey Ray, HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Brooks says:

    Wow/Outstanding!
    Brother You are Great.
    God Will Bless You
    For Your Honesty
    Take Care!

    We have the same car….i change the oil 3-6k mi…. Oils cheap. Easiest oil change ive ever done.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Thatcher says:

    Outside of European models and vehicles that call for 0w-16, most vehicles oils specs can be met by a synth blend, even dexos. Ergo, most non-European dealers will use a synth blend except for vehicles with 0w-16. That is if they even do the oil change. My last dealer oil changes were on a 2017 VW and a 2015 GMC. In the VW case they forgot the sticker, in the GMC case the oil was black way before the oil life expired – and they way over torqued the oil pan bolt. So I sit and I wonder. ALWAYS CHECK YOUR DIPSTICK RIGHT AFTER SOMEONE ELSE DOES AN OIL CHANGE. Especially if you are running long intervals.

    Before i work on anybodies car
    I have them stand there next to the car and tell me everything that i should know about the car.

    Then i check all the car fluids possible at that time.
    Then we go test drive the car to try and recreate the problem. If it grenades on me they cant blame it on me.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars roythearcher says:

    I do believe its a design fault if the valve timing is upset by a low oil condition before the low oil light comes on as surely the low oil light should be warning of an impending condition rather than one that already exists!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Deborah hallett says:

    It’s amazing how new car owners don’t realize there is this thing in the glove box called an owners manual that states regular maintenance is required!! And you can’t fix lazy or ignorance! Just my opinion

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tracey Jones says:

    The other problem is that people don't train themselves to do basic knowledge of the car there driving they just buy the car and drive until something goes wrong and then leave themselves wide open to be taken advantage of by unscrupulous mechanics.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tracey Jones says:

    Man if this was anyone else working on his car they would have told him he needed a new this and that costing him an arm and leg no doubt about it.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Glenn Wood says:

    Love your videos

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Little pepper says:

    And my neighbors ask why I always check my oil condition and level every week 😒

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bowhunters says:

    A shady auto repair shop would have the engine apart already! $$$$$

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Big B says:

    What kind of cleaner are you pouring into the engine. I need some for my beater and just curious.
