    Good video Ray.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Derric Greene says:

    Me: Watching this bored at work while I have a cold, waiting for the next ten hours to pass so I can go home and have my two days off
    Rainman: Have a great day!
    Come on, Ray…I'm trying!

    This is why the joke about increasing the price if 'you watch' 'if you help' 'if you worked on it first' or 'if you say I heard it on the internet'.

    '…it's so stiff…'
    What about the drive shaft?

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars harold h says:

    1. Don't use a grinder to clean electrical contacts.. they are tin or nickel coated and if you remove the coating it will corrode in a month on the road.. used contact cleaner and a fine Scotch rite. If you remove the coating, spray with gylptal etc to prevent future corrosion
    2. Clean corroded relay and fuse contacts with contact cleaner too.
    3. Always mark the drive shaft so you can put it back the same way… Over time the balance can become positional.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Foxtrap says:

    I can't believe you don't put witness marks on the bearings you pull apart. Bearings wear out of true, and they need to re-assembled in the way they came from. Otherwise, they're out of balance, and will rumble, wearing the part out faster.

    hey, this problem wouldn't hapen to also be common to old Mitsubishis and other Japanese makes would it? I had the fusebox open in a Montero Sport, and the fusible links were all corroded INSIDE their casings.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BickDutt says:

    I've been lucky and most problems are an easy fix like this.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Dube says:

    Who knew taping wires together was a bad idea….? LOL

    Hahaha, what till his truck starts dying while driving.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TVhyrus says:

    As an amateur mechanic nothing hurts worse than finding out you did the right thing the wrong way

    Did you ever put the nuts back on the ecm?….and remember kids…you cant replace the ecm without programming your keys to it or you have to get the keys and key cylinder that goes with the new ecm or your auto will not start.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Hedrick says:

    I've used duct tape for a electrical repairs when i was stuck on the side of the road. Then i fixed it properly after i got home

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Spaghetti says:

    Very interesting. It seems a good deal of being a mechanic is quite it bit of investigative work.

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

    Ohhhh then you'll love working on my 2001 Honda Accord. I affectionately call it Connie the Rattle Can"! I do all my own work of course.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars yourmofo says:

    The OCD in me wants to rotate those u-joint caps so they’re center in that yoke and not 1/4 mooned.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MR Alien says:

    Your certain is incorrect… That aftermarket wiring is actually factory wiring for the 12 volt supply to the trailer brake. So confidence is way down.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thirza Peevey says:

    Geez, I did better wiring repairs on vacuum cleaners than that. That one will be back in 3-2-1… It ain't gonna be happy with that cam sensor for long.

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

    you know he's a real mechanic.. he swears at the parts

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frank Bowne says:

    There isn’t a connector for the neutral safety switch?

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Next Level Club! says:

    Shaft is so stiff – thats what she said

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kara Noelle says:

    For the moral of the story, this heavily applies to my job working tech support for an access control system. Find what someone did to try and fix it, because sometimes what they did to fix it breaks or hides another problem.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Harley Stevenson says:

    Read the two small wires when is brake control one is charge line for the tow plug

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike says:

    it's time to duct tape z auto

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike says:

    Nice stereo effect when the cop went by!!

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars saultube44🇺🇦 says:

    If the wiggle test triggers something, then those cables should be replaced entirely, probably destroyed cables IMHO; and I'd be wrong.
    Why people don't fix properly their vehicles? it bothers me, they're going to be a hazard, on the highways specially, for everybody

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

    They do make a spray contact cleaner you could have used on the relays and sockets.
    I often wonder what the dealership charges for this kind of work.🤔

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rich Halsy says:

    Great video thanks
    Always messes me up seeing the flickering odometer and radio display but it’s the frame rate of camera and the displays fighting each other 🤣

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rarr says:

    not to dog the guy that tried to fix his car but Google and YouTube exist

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dekz says:

    if you get a chine out of wiggling some wires under the hood, god youve got a fire hazard on your hands

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 96VS says:

    Man you do good work.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug & Nancy Cunningham says:

    Your the man brother

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ithaqhua says:

    5 people for that? Try pushing a full sized truck up a slant with 5 people XD

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Hooker says:

    Thank you for you diligence and countence!

    Someone almost lost an eye when the wobbly bit got engaged.

    Loved the sped up clip of zombie in the background near the end!
