      Soooooo..... pour Coca-Cola in the gas tank to clean the carbon build up? If a person can’t afford a new Mass Air Flow sensor, disconnect it? Make sure you get a can of air to dust / clean your air filter?! 👍👽✈️✈️⚗️⚗️🌬🌬💨💨🌫🌫🌨🌨⛈⛈🌎🌏🌍🚫

    Hey Scotty, you fixed a problem you didn't even know you fixed! Recently I bought a brand new 2006 Acura RSX (well, like-new--less than 80 K miles, one owner). I had one small but annoying problem w/ it: when starting from dead stop, engine warm, I would sometimes stall it, or sometimes the revs would spike when I let out the clutch. Now I've been driving stick shifts--3, 4, 5, and 6 speeds--for 50 years. I thought it was either the gas pedal or I was just getting too old! Well, the gas pedal was okay. But then I watched this video and thought, Aha! the throttle plate, let me look at that. So, I saw just a little carbon around the edge of the plate, but cleaned it anyway. And guess what? --Starting problem solved!

    Coke and Pepsi cleans a greasy windshield incredibly well, so before you go spend 40$ for new wipers, try that first. You know that moment when it has not rained for a while and your wipers can’t seem to wipe off the water and makes it hard to see through, just shake the shake the can and spray it all over the glass and then turn on the wipers. Better do it when it’s raining when it’s urgent or better when you’re about to drive in the car wash, That’s an ol timer trick and works like a charm.

    I always use 10W40 oil in our cars because we live in high temperature desert country. When the outside temperature reaches 100-110F I do not trust 0W20 low viscosity to provide lubrication to protect the engine. With 5 cars with one having 145K miles, never had engine problem except oil leakage from worn seals. I rather pay a little for lower gas mileage than a 3K engine problem.

    Mr. Kilmer, My oil cap says 0 20 but the auto parts store (in FL) recommend 5 30 and since changing I've had better gas milage (it was 24 mpg now 28 mpg) but I'd change it back if it was best for my car. Please advise, Thank you.

    Nice nowhere in the video did you actually recommend putting Coke in your gas tank... Which I know will kill your car btw, there's a video of someone who did it on TVclip already.. nice hook though
