    My neighbor is a DIY mechanic. He seems to fix everything by popping the hood and manually opening the throttle body and revving the engine until the noise stops. Its Belgium. Only a few generations have been walking erect although now the knuckles are hairy because they no longer drag on the ground. I can't believe that they built F-16s here, and they were good. They invented the French fry too.

    In my Nissan which the placard says tires should be at 33 – a one pound drop will make the TPMS light illuminate.

    Hi Ray. I would like to know how much training you have had? You seam to have so much knowledge. Enjoy your videos.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thomas Estes says:

    Fur-vision!

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jan Jančík says:

    So did you confirm the front left tire pressure when you changed the fuel cap? Was it a leak?

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kev Newman says:

    Similar thing happened to me. I bought a used car and was having issues. Found that the dealer or previous owner had installed the wrong fuel cap. 🧐

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fubarnow says:

    I just installed a cooling fan sensor and thermostat. I used Real Honda Parts.
    You pay more for quality.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Echristoffe says:

    I am always skeptical with « compatible » parts … for everything …
    I know manufacturer sometime have the habit to inflate the part prices but depending on what it is, it can give you a bad day.
    Even something as stupid as a replacement light can be troublesome…

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Johnson says:

    The tire light is in because of the low tire. Which probably throws the traction control light on too.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Big Hygiene says:

    Any time there's an evap or vacuum leak on toyotas, the VSC will be disabled and TCS will also be disabled because both of those systems also run on vacuum (or at least used to), so if there's any faults they turn those off and pop up the idiot lights

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Barnett says:

    No! thank you, thumbs up click!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Falco says:

    Surprised you didn’t do a smoke test for an actual diagnosis Ray. Did they not authorize full diagnostic? Just asking, not criticizing.
    Have yourself a great holiday weekend! You deserve it as much as anyone!

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Duhamel says:

    I had a couple of issues with fuel caps similar to this. I bought 2, one for my Trans Am and 1 for my Torrent. Both were from that online company named after the rain Forrest that owns the world. They both said they were authorized for my cars. But then engine lights came on for both cars. I put the old ones back on after cleaning them with brake cleaner and the lights went off.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Luca R. says:

    I was wondering: chinese automechanics should live something like a dream and a nightmare life at the same time: dream, because all the chinese components on a car fail constantly, so they can repair them. Nightmare, because when they see a car coming for the 3rd time stright, they say "how can now fix it?!" Just joking, I know there are good techs in China, and they can get good spares. A friend told me that in China you can get top quality products, if you pay the right price.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ju M says:

    No dooo-DEEEE-Dooo and wearing shorts in the shop? is it an off-day? GREAT evap system operation explanation! Thank you!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Avi Tech says:

    My truck failed emissions using one of those APS "Fit-all" cheap gas caps.
    Now that I have a 2020 Tahoe which doesn't use a gas cap, I'm kinda concerned how much it going to cost to fix when the capless filler fails.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars andrew says:

    don't try to save money and buy crap fuel cap. lol. or buy a honda and no more fuel cap required.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CNC295 says:

    When my 07 Cadillac had that code the Cadillac dealership in Vancouver Washington wanted to charge me over $3200 for repairs after charging me for a $250 diagnostic fee. I drove the car home and my buddy came over and said well let's take it to my friend who has a scan tool. He's a retired mechanic. His friend checked the codes and said that it "looks like a loose fuel cap. When was the last time you got gas?" Well that was the problem. You can't trust dealerships. 5 years later runs like a dream.

    Jeez-amus…vehicles are crazy these daisy's.
    Sometimes the tiniest little part ( which is ridiculous moneys $$$$ ) can practically disable a vehicle.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zachery Thomas says:

    Y would there be air in my gas tank when I take the gas cap off I started after I changed my spark plugs for a 2000 dodge Durango slt plus

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars stephen vale says:

    The sad thing today is the overwhelming numbers of counterfeit parts, that are sold by reputable stores. And you never know if the store even knows they are counterfeit now.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Moon Moon says:

    What I love about evap systems is that you’re actually saving fuel with an emissions system. It’s tiny, but yes, your car literally does run on fumes—at least partially.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cody Pugh says:

    I had to yell at my friend whom I helped install cheap Chinese wheel bearings on his vw jetta. Those crappy bearings failed almost like clockwork within 2 months. He complained saying oem was 3 times the price I told him he already paid more buying multiple cheap parts than he would've paid buying oem. It's been 4 years since then and the oem is still going strong

    Have a great day Ray!! 🙏❤💪

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Clark says:

    Mis matched tires can cause traction control because wheel speed sensors pick up tires turning different speeds.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Youtube is Inconsistent says:

    Nothing wrong with an aftermarket fuel cap as long as it's actually model specific. This was probably the first one they grabbed off the shelf in the oil change section at walmart without looking at any part numbers, assuming they're all identical regardless of make.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars badassbiker1974 says:

    Ray, did blowing the tyres up put the pressure monitoring light off or not? Could have had a dodgy sensor in one of the wheels! Update please 🙏

    Toyota knew people would ignore CEL for evap system error so they set their ECU to turn off traction control etc so it couldn't be ignored…crafty!

    Changed out radiator and OEM cap doesn't fit and didn't come with one so now what do I have to get a whole new radiator just for a cap or is there a way around that

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pumpup Jam says:

    You know,due to inflation, I was going to buy a gas cap for my car off Amazon. But changed my mind. So I coughed up $44.00 for a omegas capfrom dealer. You know IT WORKED! The engine light went off. When it comes to certain vehicle parts make sure they are OEM's or else you will suffer for it sooner then you think! Rock Auto, good place to check for parts. But naje sure oem!
    I ordered months back spark plugs cylinders.the advertisement said OEM. I bought! Surprisemthey were not OEM. But made in China, and I sure said one. I sent back same day delivered with pictures. Got my money back. Sparks plugs from dealer. Better safe then sorry

    Ray, I love your work. Last video you asked for opinions about the new mic: Tinny, lots of BG noise. Wind stands out. That said, will always dig these vids, and I'm not even a car guy.

    Also. EVAP leak does not happen on a full tank or below 1/4. It runs it's test between 3/4 and 1/4. I'm sure you already know this. But to everyone who doesn't.

    You’re better off farming used OEM parts from a u pull it junkyard.
