Scotty. Thank you.
Scotty at his best. The reason I subscribe
mPXg-N28rZs&t=1m50s 1:50 "old clunker" and Scotty puts up a picture of a Mercedes. mPXg-N28rZs&t=13m02s 13:02 "old junker" and another Merc, LOL.
hi scotty. ithink ihave a power steering fluid leak from my steering rack, is it ok to put some stopleak fluid in the resevoir . it's only a small leak but it may become worse overtime, some say it will damage the system but i;m not to sure. i have a 2007 mk6 ford fiesta, cheers scotty.
I did my apprenticeship with Honda in Australia and asked my coworker who was working for them for 15 years "Power steering fluid and ATF can be interchangable, why doesnt Honda just use ATF for power steering" and he told me that the mechanisms are delicate and that can ruin it
I wished I lived closer to him just so I can give him some tip money for helping us all for free.
Most of these things can be found in the user manual. Optimum tire pressure is on the driver's side door jam. Don't trust the oil life indicator that's on the DIC.
I agree with another commenter that you know your stuff Scotty, but why do you call people "stupid" in your notification comments?
I explain the oil thing with the "skating rink vs ball pit" Old cars and the old tech wanted to ensure there was always ice in the skating rink so your metal could glide but the new stuff needs to shove balls under you in the ball pit.
Tire pressure is "cold standing" meaning room temp, 72°F pressure, the tires will increase their pressure on highway to "optimal" for travel.
If you go to the car and the sidewall beside the tread is horizontal "in line with the ground" at the edge of the tread it may be a situation of too much moisture or too low a pressure in that specific circumstance... like late 90's SUV's where the manufacturers were telling customers to badly underinflate their tires to soften crappy ride quality - this doesn't happen often anymore
God bless you even more 🙏
Thanks for all the information. I specially like the "old clunker" word now.
oil is cheap, engines arent- words to live by
I stick with manufacturers recommended life times transmission fluid
All good information.
100% with the Hondas don't use anything but the stuff specifically for a Honda. I had a 88 Accord that went 487,000 miles with no problem till the Deer stepped out in front of it one night.
So 5w 30 Pennzoil in a Honda civic 2008 model ~ no good?
I’m not even high, yet Mr. Kilmer tricks my eyes and brain. The way he moves, and the way the background remains so still makes it feel like a green screen is on the background. Kind of trippy.
I wish I lived next door to Scotty.
Hope you continue to injoy your car it's 1 of 2 dream cars
