    reeeee clean that old stuff off so thermal paste works as intended
    🤬🤬

    Hi,
    I am from Germany and love your videos. There are some interesting difference between your art of work and the way they do the things here. One is that you record the video by yourself. Wow not easy to film and work at the same time. So thank you and go on with your videos.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Paturno says:

    I have to laugh when non-mechanics throw parts at an issue, hoping that one fixes the problem. Sometimes, experience with a particular vehicle makes it more likely that a time-consuming diagnosis is not necessary, but in most cases, following a shop manual troubleshooting step-by-step procedure is ideal.

    Your best videos are the most catastrophic and involve total neglect and forbidden mustard overflows. HVAC good too, some homes require moon suits due to hygiene.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrArtVendelay says:

    I am guessing that flow chart is from All Data. That must be an expensive service to subscribe to.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Nedyalkov says:

    This was one of the more complicated procedures here, thanks God the engineers have come up with these beautiful step by step instructions.

    2001 Ford Escape, bad ECU. Nobody but nobody could diagnose the failure. Replaced all the ignition coils. No ECUs available anywhere to test or even buy. Finally the dealership found one that had been ordered but never used sitting on someone’s shelf. $1800? In the end the car ran beautifully for many more years but the economical thing to do would have been to total it. 10 years and you can’t expect your dealer to have any parts for your car. This is when I decided to quit buying new Fords.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Staszko says:

    Wow, look at you looking at diagrams, just like Eric O.

    I have done several parking lot repairs including a timming belt.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ernest McHenry says:

    That old ford had a stopped up exhaust this I know from experience This is a new from like I said experience let me know I’m curious if I was right I know that the fuel problem but that’s not all the problems on that old Ford LTD Crown Victoria they had the motor put in it I really enjoy your mechanical aptitude I wished I would’ve had some of that when I was gonna work on the prayer partner screwed him it was too but I helped a lot of people I like the way you think right where you work and you’re watching your videos thank you

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Galen Vetterick says:

    What? My bill is $1500!😢

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mary Mulrooney says:

    Reminds me of a problem I had. My car would die. No rhyme or reason as to when it would die. Took it to a small auto repair place my brother recommended. I asked the owner if they had a computer thing to put on my car to tell them what was wrong. He told me yes. So, I left the car there. apparently over night the battery went dead (I never had trouble with it) so when I went to get the car, they charge me for repairs and the battery, and I leave. I get about a mile away and the car died again. It always starts again. So, I drove it back. They worked on it some more, charged me and I leave. (I forget what they said they did) I go around the block and pull into restaurant parking lot. Get my food and try to leave and it won't start. I was half a block from the mechanic and so I walked over, this time I was hot under the collar. One of the mechanics walks across the street, pulls a module of some sort out of the fire wall area, says now try to start it. It started. He has me drive back to the shop. They order a new module and plugs it in and charges me again. nearly $1000.00 later and it was a stupid, less than 100.00 module. I told the owner that I should get my money back on all the other work because it did not fix the problem, and why didn't their computer tell them what the problem was. He said they don't have a computer. I told him I asked first thing when I went there, and that is why I left me car, he told me that he never said he did, because he doesn't. I never went back there, and I bad mouthed them every chance I got.

    Thanks!

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars martin lyons says:

    Hi Ray thanks for the great videos !!!
    When I have a problem with my car it’s going to cost a fortune to ship it from the UK to the USA for you to fix !!! 🙈🙈🙈

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stetsonhatman says:

    I had to laugh the first time Ray said, “You guys watch for a spark I’ll go turn it over”. 20 k voices yelled there’s no Spark! Loved the TS flowchart – wow was that remarkably detailed. Great vid Ray

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars lynskyrd says:

    another great video… printing the flowchart- then methodically going through the steps instead of just ordering parts and crossing your fingers. Well done sir.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars randy beard says:

    Most all Mechanics including Ray knew if no fire to Spark Plugs, it was Coil or Control Module…

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars High Brow says:

    Step 47: go to step 1.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars D Hab says:

    Great detailed diagnostic! Never skip a step! Never be a parts hanger mechanic. Thank you.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Randy Stoffel says:

    approximate mileage then tell us actual mileage duh

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dave b says:

    Without heat sink compound that module wouldn’t last a week

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R L says:

    I really like watching you it brings back things when I was in the field.i used to love doing that kinda work

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JOHN SEAVEY says:

    Good to know that is my truck for many more years.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Assisi says:

    It's terrific to watch your process. Thanks very much for these videos.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David McDonald says:

    Good call. Appreciate the effort you put into diagnostic tests before you start.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pacher & Sons Roofing says:

    All your hats and shirts and cups should say "click"

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zachary Ives says:

    Where do you get the flow charts from? Those are Amazing

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thomas S says:

    Good job. I have one question … Can we download Flow Charts from the net or is it exclusively for services?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars XR8 Sprint says:

    Distributor systems are a pain in the ass, from the ignition coil to the distributor it self shitting it self was always a nightmare for one of my older cars. It was my first car and had to replace something in this system every 6 months lol. Coil packs are so much better to diag them and they just don't randomly shit them self every 6 months.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Hibbard says:

    I miss the good old days when you just parked under a shade tree and fix it easy breezy

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mattman says:

    I compliment you on following the flow and chart and directions bravo 👏

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars subbuilder says:

    Good job.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Kelley says:

    Where do you get flow charts

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

    No shower today, so they made me work outside… and I wear short pants to work.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Travis Allen says:

    Got fuel no spark check that crap cross fire distributor cap ive had enough experience with then going bad causing that same problem (by cross fire i mean the flat cap where the wores come out on the side of 5he spark plugs )

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Fagan says:

    Great video! Very detailed and meticulous diagnosis. Nice work! Really appreciate your knowledge. So many home mechanics throw parts at the problem and end up getting frustrated when it isn't fixed.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sophie Dolman says:

    Nicely done Ray. Proper !!

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Will Key says:

    Does it have a crank sensor on it

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Epke says:

    I want you to know, I love watching these videos. I'm going to do a LQ4 swap into a 1986 C10 Chevy Pickup and troubleshooting is going to be my friend. hah! I love the flow chart videos. Would love to know how to find diagrams and such(I would assume I could google things). Subbed and keep up the good work my man!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aborigine to the land Aborigine says:

    That was very interesting!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JAMES KONET says:

    ANOTHER JOB WELL DONE

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Leach says:

    Great job

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jesse Mounts says:

    I wonder how many computer geeks there are watching this cursing at the Gods for heat syncing issues.

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

    Hey ray no spark

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Ferguson says:

    Where do you find the flow charts?

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wayne mazan says:

    wow….. well done..

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joke Kelleey says:

    It's all about the click got to have to click click click
