    Ray, I think you are a real good mechanic. I try watching you but you make my ass want to chop fire wood with your one arm videos

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Quick Brown Fox says:

    One thing that movies have taught me is the practicality of tiny stickers used to cover up dashboard lights wherever needed.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars B A says:

    Rodent poop, would lead me to check for chewed wires for the ABS.
    If mine at 300,000 miles, I'd say just do the valve cover gaskets and an oil change.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan's Learning Curve says:

    So basically, you got video content….

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ken C says:

    It's neat that you/your shop can even properly diagnose & repair ABS-related problems. I thought you'd have to return to the dealership for stuff like that.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Number 6. says:

    What am I sitting in is exactly what I was thinking when you opened the door. Do these vehicles smell in the heat when you open them?

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars repairdroid77 says:

    Just put a happy face sticker over each malfunction light. Lots of glowing happy faces.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Lombardi says:

    Duhhhhh

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Lombardi says:

    U got to turn it the right way

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark S says:

    This is what happens now. We create junk vehicles that still work. So many things are so expensive to repair now that it is not economical to do the repair, so you just trash the vehicle. We create garbage out of things that are not garbage. How environmentally friendly is that? Plus the environmental cost of manufacturing a brand new vehicle to replace it.

    Airliners are made so that it is economical to repair them for at least 30 years. How come our cars can not be made the same way.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott R says:

    Why does this guy mostly work on POS Fords?

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SOU6900 says:

    I'm glad my 85 and 86 Chevy/GMC trucks don't have all these lights. Same with my 95 Ford dually.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wtmayhew says:

    I bet there are some service techs who wouldn’t mind a few minutes in a locked room with the Ford engineers who decided that was a good mounting location for the ABS pump. On vehicles I’ve owned over the last 45 years or so, it has always been the braking systems which have most frequently required service. Engineering lesson: put stuff needing fixing where it can be fixed. Drive it til the wheels fall off is the right choice for this van.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! paul deavall says:

    That van is now a tin of beans

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stan Smith says:

    I'll buy it. Send me a message

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gerry Nightingale says:

    I'm in the 'Drive it till the engine seizes' category
    I'd ensure fresh oil and fluids, but that would be as far as I went with it
    ________
    Of course, it has to be considered I'm always 'Broke' so I have a good excuse, and even if I could afford the repairs, I wouldn't invest that much ca$h into a 300K-miles vehicle

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robbo Ironink says:

    That hood latch reminds me of my 79 Z28. It was always stuck. At least there was a lot of room to work on the engine. It was a very strong engine. 350 4speed with some mods. Too bad they were rust buckets. A buddy bought the drivetrain and the scrapyard gave me 500$. Not a good ROI for the 9k I paid for it new.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robbo Ironink says:

    Ray, I’ve noticed the top end of the speedometer on a lot of vehicles you’ve worked on. This particular vehicle has a top end of 130mph. I have always topped out my vehicles. The most surprising was my 2011 GMC Terrain. It topped out at 240 kph ( I’m in Canada, metric system ) it’s got the 2.4 liter 4 banger all wheel drive. I topped it out and it wanted to go faster. It also didn’t take long to get to that speed.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gaijininja says:

    Typical Ford Transit. Loud engine noise in the cabin, oil leaks, (At least it’s a gasket. Older models spray oil out the oil pump spindle.) and error codes everywhere. Most of us Transit drivers learn the simple rule, if it’s amber, not it, if it’s red turn it off and on again. If the red stays out, ignore it. If it comes back on, get it towed to the workshop.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars reopeadres says:

    This was the second time you worked on that vehicle. Watched the first one right before this one same result customer wanting something for nothing.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Vogel says:

    looked like my subaru before i traded it in

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars goawaken everyone says:

    Abs pumps and module should rarely go bad as the pump and motor only ever kick in when a wheel locks up.
    If there is vermin droppings in the engine area I would check for a chewed wire.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark NC says:

    I had a '92 Honda Accord that my anti-lock brakes went out associated with a huge ice and snow storm. Driving around on ice triggered my anti-lock brakes to activate very often, wearing them out. The mechanic said I was fine to keep driving the vehicle with the ABS light on. I did. I drove the car five additional years like that. The car later broke down for other reasons, leading to its disposal.

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

    You can buy a used pump if needed (much cheaper).

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars stanthrax117 says:

    I did like this video. That wee van should be so proud of itself.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars geoff decorator says:

    Disable the dash lights ,but i never said that honest !

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike says:

    “Where’s my key? Oh I left it in the hood” I laughed

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Alexander says:

    At the very least even getting another van like it around the cost of fixing this one get one in better condition and keep this one at least for emergency backup and just drive it like it is until it completely reaches the end of it's life

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dean C. says:

    2 year parts shortage? Because of the flu, scamdemic, Planned-demic.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jay R says:

    Thank you for including pricing details on parts and labor

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Vaughn says:

    That's not a traction control light. That's the "Do a Burn Out" indicator! 😆

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars F Huber says:

    The economy 50 gallon can of brake clean needed to clean the engine…

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Travis Bruno says:

    I had a 2010 transit and what a piece of junk tranny went after 105,000 and i have 2 vehicles that are still runnong great at 320,000

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TransGal Gaming says:

    the moment you said rat poop….. Fucker pissed on it i bet

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben W Gunter says:

    Bring it up here to n.d. … we'll put that abs to good use. Y'all dont need it down there.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr K says:

    Imo Ford Transit is trash.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars EvilJ069 says:

    You didn't even look at brake fluid or address TCS lol

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Peverley says:

    In the UK is would be marked as unroadworthy I suspect

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Peverley says:

    Or until it kills someone?

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Peverley says:

    So you forget things, a normal human trait!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Hermesch says:

    Love the hood latch!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Kettell says:

    I had the abs module go bad on my Avalanche a year out of warranty . They wanted $1200 plus labor . i said forget it and drove another 150 thousand miles without ABS.The brakes were much better without it. As far as i am concerned it is just a gimmick for women drivers to feel safe. The ABS on my 92 GMC Jimmy never worked right for the two years i kept it. They were exactly the same as on the S10 Pickup ,i know because i had one at the time. The dealer said no thats not true , it was because the part numbers were identical. T HHE PROBLEM WAS THAT THE jIMMY WAS 500 POUNDS HEAVIER.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Steward says:

    $2.000.00 for an abs module? The van isn't worth much more than that as a used car.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars seeya205 says:

    I would drive it until it died. You will have a hard time getting a new one right now and if you do, it will cost you!

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Robertson says:

    Plus the cost of a new ignition key.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rjk69 says:

    Bonnet release, turn key left and then right.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CAYMAN987 says:

    Dont blame them for not putting 2000 plus into a 1000 dollar van. I would drive it that way until something else broke.
