    Hi

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Craig Goodwin says:

    Those scan tools aren't worth crap UNLESS they have a few drops of ice cream smeared on them here and there. Hey Eric, did you go past the ice cream shop on the way home. How did that work out? Thanks for sharing!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Uptin Sinclaire says:

    What was the deal with the test light and the sparking? Just checking to see if the coil is firing?

    Can I change mazda rims to ford ranger rims on too.for 2005 b2300 mazda.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ronald Bergeron says:

    I would like to see more of detecting plug wires that are in the wrong order. In this video I lost you. I couldn't follow your trouble shooting. Great video.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Larry Holland says:

    I have a 98 Ford Ranger/standard shift. My engine will rev high,and won’t go back down until I come to a complete stop, or downshift. What do you think about this

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Standaert says:

    Ever since my OTC Genesys that I got over 10 years ago, I completely lost faith in OTC scan tools. That thing never failed to disappoint.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Kubash says:

    We used to have John Deere 310A's back in the day, they did us a good job. Our newest one now is a 310SK – nice machine!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Kubash says:

    I might of crossed plug wires up before! lol

    Hope you weren't too hard on your brother on this. As you say, we all make mistakes or oversights.
    Also, oftentimes double, triple and quadruple checking things seems to exacerbate that – just keep overlooking the same issue to the point we convince ourselves the issue HAS to be elsewhere – when the issue is actually a consistent brain fart.
    Take a break (grab a coffee, smoke, toilet break, sandwich, w/e) and come back to it with fresh eyes or get someone else to double check it – blam fixed, there's your problem lady.
    Can't ride someone if you're the second eyes because you know damn well karma will bite you right away and you'll miss something even more obvious right the next day that they get to catch. Keeps us humble. 🙂

    The coilpack on these last gen vulcans have a 123|564 pattern instead of 456… very confusing to many people, its an easy mistake to make and even miss on second inspection….

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Krause says:

    I felt a slight miss driving down the highway in my 02' Ford Ranger XLT 4.0L and drove it into the the Ford Dealership. I had to initially paid for the Diagnostics Test that showed a misfire at Number 5 cylinder. I had them install new plugs and plug wires as recommended, and an hour later I was back on the road. I request the same trusted mechanic that repetitively works on Ford Rangers and gets to the point, does the fix, road test it afterwards, and evaluated what repairs I may need in the future like a valve cover leak, which he did the next day. My truck is 19 years old with 174,000 miles, and I'm retired now driving only 3000 miles a year. My truck runs, drives, and looks like Show Room Condition. It's the best $19,000 investment I had ever made, besides my 1998 Ford Ranger that was totaled in a head-on collision from the other guy on the wrong side of the road. The shock of impact traveled through the whole truck to where you couldn't open up the tailgate. If I had the money I would buy a new ranger, but they want double now for what I paid for mine.

    There's nothing here Worth Dying For carry your ass on kick rocks. That's a good sign at your brother shop I like it.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars hightttech says:

    Eric, you have worked with MANY scanners. Which one is your favorite to date? (For a shop like yours)

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Mason says:

    Wait till your brother gets the bill for the service call and double the price when someone else has worked on it

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Weir says:

    Any excuse to get out of the shop, or, to see baby brother?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Groel says:

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lisa Tamez says:

    I just replaced the catalytic converter on my 2006 Mazda b3000 Dual sport 3.0 Now the overdrive is flashing and check engine light came on. Code is p0174. System is too lean bank 2. When I move cable to overdrive under hood and secured it overdrive flashing stopped and kicking stopped. But P0174 still appears. 🤔 mass air flow sensor has been cleaned and the air control valve has been changed. Anyone have any clue what else it could be ?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Douglas Sprague says:

    un-
    burnt fuel to the O2 sensor? does that show lean or rich? Seems like it would indicate a rich condition.
