    Scams I've seen working in a garage. "Can you put this oil in my car", Ends up in mechanics car "Can you use this engine flush", end up in mechanics car or bin "Can you change the oil and filter" - Tops up oil. Or changes oil, and cleans filter housing. "Can you change the fuel filter" - Cleans filter housing "Something-something doesn't feel right" - Don't touch car, bill customer for inspection, and quote to fix "Headgasket" - Fixes head gasket, same head bolts. "Got a leak into the car" - Don't look at car, bill for fixing leak I NEVER take my car to a garage for any work. But I'm an ex-mechanic.

    I have always bought batteries in costco, they return your money and with that money you buy another battery, and the warranty is renewed every time, they are not of high quality but the guarantee is, greetings from Mexico. The price of a battery for a Nissan Sentra has an approximate cost of 75USD in Costco Mexico.

    I always change my oil myself; my Chevrolet Sonic uses a Cartridge-type oil filter with an O-ring that must be seated correctly. However, for preventative maintenance I did take my Sonic to the Junkyard (Chevrolet Dealer😂🤣) for a cooling system flush and I must say, they seemed to have done a pretty good job. My local Junkyard seems honest.🤣🤣 Love the videos, Scotty.😁👍

    Sorry for the long story guys: I bought a car 2 years back and the stealership told me that I had 3 free oil changes (at the moment thought that was sweet!) I took it at 5k to get the free change and left it there. A couple hours after I received a call to my office from a "manager" stating that my car needed a new "air filter". I played him off asking him what was that, where does it go and why did I needed it. The guy came out with this whole story of how important the air filter is and how hard it is to replace since (according to him) it's so deep in the engine. After his "explanation" I laughed my a** off and asked him if my car was ready. He replied with a short, "yes" and I hanged up. Went back for my car and never been back since!

    Hey Mr. Scotty, I got a deal on this 2005 Lincoln Navigator (Limited Edition), and one problem that I’ve been noticing is that if I keep it parked somewhere like the garage for a few days, there will be a little green-colored fluid on the ground below where the truck was. When I asked our local mechanic, he just shrugged his shoulder and said it was nothing. What do you think sir? Is this something I need to worry about?

Called me up while he was there and advised to go to another shop.

I stopped to talk to her and put my jack under to show her it was wobbling in a parking lot. She STILL wanted to drive it to a mechanic. Had to call a cop to watch me run the lug-nuts back in on a little Honda in a parking lot... seriously. Weak old men or dumb grandkids not knowing what 70ft/lbs is can cause accidents. Five times I've stopped rigs because a trailer tire was blistering for a good pop. I go up with a diagram of which wheel it is, you show em that and they'll listen.

    The wobbly tire story brings back an old memory. I remember riding with my brother in his beater of a car. This was 35ish years ago. Coming back from the mall, at a stoplight, a car that was behind us pulled up beside us and said," hey buddy, your rear tire is wobbling". My brother responded, "That's the only straight part, the rest of the car is wobbling". The light turned green and we continued on. Miss you, Paul. R.I.P.
