    Is your mic screwing up? Or is it my phone?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Salty Creole says:

    Your hands move decidedly faster on the back end of a repair than on the front end. I feel your pain.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mitch Short says:

    Good job ray it's nice to know some people you can trust out there

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SpeedRunLabbo says:

    I like that you show the process and take us through what you’re doing. It’s like ASMR for car people

    Same exact thing happened to my Acadia. Dealership replaced my engine and when i got it back the charging system was all screwed up. I took it back twice and still was not properly fixed. I ordered a new alternator and low and behold when removing the old alternator the nut was hand tight on the main power wire. The alternator I took out looked just like that one all burned and melted around the stud and so was the main wire.

    Hey, your time machine isn't working. I tried it and I ain't going back in time.

    You don't seem to have very much light to see anything , maybe its just me , not sure !

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don's Junkmail says:

    Its another sign when you start pushing doors that normally open up to you or visa versa!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don's Junkmail says:

    The mosquito's have a tracking device on you also.

    Couldn't stop staring into the deep abyss that would be a dipstick

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dr.Cosmar says:

    extra aqua, for you not the vehicle.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alejandro Serantes says:

    The “Click!” And “gravity…” get me every time. Fun and informative, great content!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jay Stay says:

    silly American…..it's the other way around the GM is built out of Suzuki parts lollll

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob says:

    Another car fixed ray

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Allen Bo says:

    Before any vehicle leaves research and design the engineers should have to take various parts off to see how hard they are to replace after engine is installed in car.
    Ford pick-ups have to remove body from chassis on newer ones to get to different parts. That's insane.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kyle Cecil says:

    I love your attention and detail and thorough trouble shooting. I was nervous for a sec that you were going to forget the dipstick, but you caught it. I'm binge watching your videos! Keep up the good content buddy!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KamsWarNPeace says:

    That engine looks NOTHING like my 09 CTS engine lol

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Jackson says:

    Maybe the shop should get some bulk hoses just to have on hand for everybody's convenience

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben Dover says:

    Luv your videos! You definitely have more patience than I! Food for thought: if you don't remember how you got a part out and you were recording the process, watch the video to see how you removed it.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Walter Wieckowicz says:

    Was that the oil dipstick tube missing a dip stick🤔

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars richodude2 says:

    Ray , you know you don’t sound a bit like that telephone ringer, but now everyone is making that sound when their own phone rings …… you even have Eric O doing it now …. Keep up the awesome channel , thanks .

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eric K. says:

    Ray it is not built out of GM parts, it is a GM product, it dates back to when GM owned a large percentage of Suzuki.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thoridin58 says:

    Auto Design Engineers should be made to replace every part under the hood themselves on a mock-up before a design goes into production.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brennen Goude says:

    I thought that looked like a gm. Steering wheel was a dead giveaway

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jesse S says:

    You’re suppose to put a new battery in when you install a new alternator.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ken Dowton says:

    Back in the eighties I was working at an Oldsmobile/Gmc dealer when the State of Calif. held a class at our shop about safety & chemical use. Brake-Kleen is/was a Cancer causing substance as well as having an effect on brain fuction and lung condition. Bad thing was before that we never concerned ourselves with taking precustions with it. It must be used with proper ventilation or lund damage will occur.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Madsen says:

    Everyone should watch your videos because of your video quality and explanation detail. I don’t know where you live and work or the “Dealerships “ that are around you. I’m a retired Dealership fixed operations director and never allowed poor workmanship or taking advantage of customers. Your dealership reference inferring poor workmanship annoyed me.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars K Brickell says:

    put some grease (battery terminal grease) over the main alternator lead to stop corrosion

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Av8tore71 says:

    Chevy Traverse, GMC ACADIA also has the 3.6L

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Yawwee Shalimar says:

    You did it Ray, got thru the day on this job. Rest and have a nice hot toddy drink or two !!!!

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John says:

    Funny that you mentioned being a contortionist. In my early days on London's buses I remember we had a Chinese gynaecologist on call for instances just such as this

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Taylor says:

    Bad Medicine.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Black Terminal says:

    In 10 years: "on today's video we are going to unbolt this Tesla battery. In part two we bolt up the replacement. "

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thomas Coyne says:

    Nice work 👍👍🇬🇧uk

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thebanjoman1963 says:

    Suzuki using GM 3.6v6 engines and parts for their Xl7 line was partly the reason why Suzuki left the US market. I still own 2 Suzikis myself a 1992 Samurai since 94 (28 years) and its been a very reliable car. I wish they still sold Suzuki in the USA. You may have saved the alternator, only to have the timing chains in the 3.6V6 go soon after.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fredrik Oscarsson says:

    Good job! No dip stick?

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rob pierce says:

    I knew this Suzuki was made from GM parts but was quite surprised to learn it had a Cadillac engine. This is what I love about your channel over the many similar out there. You don't just cater to the mechanics in your audience, but also to the auto enthusiast with an interest in how things work. I have learned so much watching your videos!

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Emelito Duran says:

    You must have followed a sequenced procedure that your place of employment enforced upon you

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Ruberton says:

    I though these were fault six Didn't know Cadillac made one or as m I thinking of suburu

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Ruberton says:

    If brake cleaner bothers you you spray it like windex

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mk L says:

    All you have to do is do one higher level mechanic project, and you will understand immediately why it cost a little bit to take your car to them. Some of those projects are quite involved, even after a pretty thorough diagnostic procedure. Also kudos for the filming, I tried doing it once and I stopped within maybe 10 minutes. Grease, positional changes, job taking longer/frustrating, etc. This guy clearly has it down.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kristine Jeffels says:

    The same as Ford makes most of Mazda’s stuff!

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

    You would not be using break clean like that if you had to pay for it

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keith Libner says:

    I always tell people to hook up the positive before putting the negative cable on. That way you can't accidentally hit your wrench on anything grounded and crow bar your battery.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg B says:

    Love your videos. I know that you probably can't say but I'd like to know the name & location of your shop. My daughter, (single mother) lives in FL and it would be nice to have a honest, reputable place to get her car serviced without having to go back to the dealership.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edwin Jewell says:

    Ray saves the Day. Suzuki's can be a Pain in the a##.
