In a previous video https://youtu.be/PrEh0zK4BI0 I looked at a Toyota Camry that was towed in for a no start. We made the call on the fuel pump and the car was towed away for a cheaper fix. Welllll.... it's back 😏! -Enjoy!

    That was Nice. I'm not looking forward to fix being fuel pump, but you made it seem quite easy. – after tests. Thanks.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steven Resendiz says:

    yeah got love customers like this – I always think "I forgot you are saving money"

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Christopher VanZetta says:

    Gotta love the cheap people who keep spending more to save less 🤣🤣

    That is what is called, "Poetic Justice".

    Another case of chinisiem not the first won't be the last lol

    Saved $200 on E-bay to pay for the towing charges….

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ALDO says:

    I wanted to point out on the Ebay specials. Ebay sells many OEM parts, used and new. Many Toyota dealers have Ebay accounts, many junk yards like LKQ also sell on Ebay, Ebay is just a platform that is comprised of many part sellers. Ebay does not directly sell anything. Any yes Ebay sells these cheap Chinese fuel pumps too. I also want to point out I have installed parts from reputable places and they have turned out defective as well. One time I installed three "new" starters, each one defective. I also have installed many OEM parts from junkyard and they were garbage. Junkyards on some parts are NOT economical, some parts costs as much as a brand new aftermarket part. I don't think this customer is "stupid", everyone is trying to save money, but sometimes things go wrong. We also don't know if the customer has other priorities like paying for rent or paying for his kids schooling. He might not have $400 for an new OEM pump, plus the repair costs. At the end of the day, its easy for all of us arm chair mechanics with MBA's to give opinions, but to be honest, should we call him stupid since he needs a mechanic to fix it? I have not visited a mechanic in decades. I think this is were you get ripped off. This guy probably paid at least $350 at minimum (if not more) for a one hour repair, but everyone is trippin on the Ebay pump.

    What year is this camry

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jvst20051 says:

    When I replaced my toyota celica fuel pump it was 5years ago from advanced it was a car quest and itss still going till this past weekend car dnt wana turn on but I dont think its my fuel pump

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jvst20051 says:

    Knowing its a fuel problem why didn't u use a fuel guage to show us that it wasn't holding pressure

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hawk 1966 says:

    Diagnosis: Owner is a cheapskate willing to spend more on towing than a reputable mechanic. Some people. . .

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars egreens says:

    Solid

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars zr1sparky1 says:

    And if I can do it… I can do it

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Burns says:

    Ha ha, fix it cheap, fix it twice 😂😂

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew ROBINSON says:

    Ebay won't take back damaged stock. Only himself to blame. You would of had him on the road the first time. Makes me laugh. Nice Work like Always.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Common Sense says:

    So this guy could have just bought the good pump with the money he didn’t spend on two tows!

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

    That’s what happens when you want to go cheap

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Mount says:

    That's what you get for trying to go cheap. The OEM is under $250. Would have been better off just buying the new part and being done with it.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zoran Neskovic says:

    lol iv got this people in my shop all too often funny how they end up spending lot more

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Flammable 281 says:

    This guy is a rube. Trying to save a few bucks and wound up paying more not to mention the aggravation of not having a car longer than what’s necessary.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars craig smyth says:

    Sounds like your customer couldn't afford to save any more money

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars agmc4me says:

    Can't fix stupid.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe T says:

    Thank you Eric for this video. Would you know the mileage the F Pump failed at ? What mileage would you recommend to change the F Pump? ( preventive maintenance)

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Parker says:

    Too cheep to pay for oem pump but can shell out for 3 tow bills, two pumps and two diags I’m amazed that some people can walk a straight line

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Wood says:

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

    Stupid guy, I used to do the same thing but after paying a very high price, I learned my lesson. Going cheap does not mean that you would save money but waste it.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pg rated says:
