im never going back to the states ever again. got ripped off at the firestone garages. as a canadian who knows nothing about fixing cars, my front drivers side wheel was smoking up and for some reason i had a hard time accelarating. i went to 4 garages and they all cost 2000usd each time to fix. in canadian dollars thats about 2600-2700$. i was given every excuse in the book as to why i needed to pay for the most expensive work.
once i got back to canada, my garage told me it was a simple warped caliper. they fixed the issue for 400$. my mechanic told me that i was scammed and taken advantage of because the garages saw a canadian license plate and knew i would never be coming back.
Im interested why use weather striping glue why not use rtv sealant like the service manual says
Thank you you are a very intelligent man I love or show very awesome I work on my own car and I learn new things from you every time thank you for the very awesome video.
Question.?. I have a 2004 Honda Civic ex I had a code of P0139 on my car and I had the Oxygen sensor replaced earlier this week but I now have a P0141 code coming from the new sensor.. Is the sensor bad?
@scottykilmer i have a 05 chavy silverado 5.3 l l33 engine and it has 197000 km on it what is expected to be wore out or blown over them kms
I would strongly advise suggesting to disconnect the negative battery terminal before reaching your hands deep inside the engine bay directly beside the electric thermostatically controlled cooling fan. This fan has been known to turn on independantly of the ignition even when the car has stopped and is turned off and the fan can turn on even when the engine has been stopped and the key removed on a hot day. Careful.
I put screws and bolts a turn or two back in where they came from. I never lose them or confuse where they go
Scooty, I get a "intermittant" humming nolse when I reach say 50 to 60 mph, at slow speeds say round town , its very quiet , any ideas?
It sucks because basically what your saying Scotty, is mechanics do half @ss jobs but want to get paid top dollar :/ I got new pad and roters on my 2001 Toyota Tacoma last week. Now I have to take it BACK IN because I keep hearing a medal against medal sound 😡😡 Not happy! Who has time to keep going to the mechanic every week because they didn't do the job right the first time?
I never use dealerships for car maintenance. Always a RIP OFF.
Scotty, how do I find an "Honest" shop in Katy, Texas, or Westside of Houston, Tx.
thermostat doesnt fix overheating, if its broken it continously allows coolant to radiator even when engine is cold. so full circulation. so it can never overheat
Always get a 2nd opinion..Although I ran into a problem where I couldn't do anything but be hosed over. About 20 years ago I took my Nissan maximum in (90k) to look at the manual transmission. Well the Nissan dealership told me over the phone it would cost $2,500+ to fix it. I did some research and found I was being seriously overcharged however, when I went to pick it up I was told if I didn't fix it there I needed to pay $1,200 just to take it home with no repair (cost of looking at it if you could believe it). The moral of the story ask if the estimate is free or not
I had a problem with my truck so I took it up to my trade school and the automotive department said they got all there parts 50% off and labor was free because they were training students well all they replaced was the clutch and flywheel and charged me over 500 dollars for it and not only that but they put atf in my manual trans which I had to change on my own time with my money and on the way back home my driveshaft yoke broke in half which I also had to pay for out of pocket and on my own time
That sealer plugs up crap. Why would you use that stuff Scotty. Smart guy like you should know that
First one was more of a blunder than a scam..
Second, did the stop leak work?
That is why I never service my cars at the dealerships.
at the dealership they probably have a flowchart for common problems. the mechanics there don't know how to analyze the problem. they just follow the flowchart.
