Scotty, why do you use the little gimmicks like dropping trunk lids, popping out of trunks and so on? Are you mocking the car dealer ads?

@Scotty Kilmer Nice Video! Apologies for the intrusion, I am interested in your opinion. Have you thought about - Tarbbatigan Cars Rehabilitation Tip (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a smashing exclusive product for learning how to repair your car the easy way minus the headache. Ive heard some decent things about it and my cousin finally got cool success with it.

In new batteries there is a indicator telling us is it good, little bit too low tension or totally bad with three different sings on them.

1) Always make sure your radiator is full of coolant so that your engine doesn't overheat. 2) If the fuel injection system isn't clean, the gas will not flow properly, and the car will not run very well.

Scotty does this apply to a new car like a 2014 Camry? Every oil change gets done at a mechanic and the fluids can stay in their forever. The fluids like the transmission fluid all gets done at the mechanic. So is this only if you do it yourself?

Question though,in one video,he read the "No need to change atf" thing and said that it was a bunch of crap. In this video he read the same sticker and he says it's okay to not change the fluid. Not being rude, just confused.

I don’t have to worry about antifreeze then. I’m lucky if my car makes it 100,000 before it rusts out. I’m at 99,381 miles on my 2005 Saturn Ion and the frame is holding on by a thread. Probably unsafe to drive, but meh it’s safer than a motorcycle.

Jerry Sempo (4 months ago)
Scotty is the best! Love your videos. I do believe in following the manufacturers vehicle maintenance schedule. I track the schedules on all my vehicles with my auto maintenance software www.automotivewolf.com and check the owners manual for each vehicle to make sure the maintenance schedule for each vehicle is exactly as the manufacturer recommends. Once you have it setup you just wait for the reminders and perform the required maintenance, then its automatically rescheduled for you. makes it easy :)

PCV valve always replace it! Most people don't even know it exists. Some people think they are burning oil or have engine problems when it's probably just a bad pcv valve.

Scotty, when mixing anti freeze remember to use distilled water to mix it as it contains no metals and will prevent any type of scale or rust developing over time.

I have one question, why is there a 10W30 fully synthetic oil ? A normal oil has that temperature change characteristic. A good oil should start with 0, like 0W30 or 0W40.

Little tid bit for what I do with my personal vehicles. I get a note book write down the current date miles and repair, then write down the next service date and miles. I usually use the owner manual for service intervals. I check the note book ever 2 weeks to see if anything need done, and check them off when I do the services

I'm confused. In one video he says to change fluid even if it's lifetime, and in this he says you don't need to. Not consistent.

Hey Scotty, would it be okay to change the trans fluid at 122,XXX miles? I bought the car and he said he never changed it. Sometimes it shifts rougher and i checked the fluid, it's darkish/red. also doesn't smell burnt or not metal chips. @scotty kilmer

I personally only use mobil 1 full synthetic in all my vehicles. It's only $25 for 5qts at Walmart. I replace every 5000miles or change at least once a year. Full synthetic is also very helpful in cold start up lubrication, if you live somewhere cold during winter like me.

Cheers for the Video clip! Excuse me for the intrusion, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you heard about - Tarbbatigan Cars Rehabilitation Tip (do a search on google)? It is a great one of a kind guide for learning how to repair your car the easy way without the hard work. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my buddy finally got astronomical success with it.
