@Sue San Now that you mentioned it, i have a friend whose sister had a 83-84 Ford Escort 2 dr. base model back in the early nineties and it had the triple line pinstripe red, grey, white or blue it was something like that.

@Myke Johnson Ye, my family's 1984 Ford Escort had a "dealer installed" pin stripe. I think it was either $80, $125 or $250. My Older brother was a diy guy, so he never took it to the dealer, for Pin Stripe Tune up 😉😂😎

@Sue San Really i didn't know they were that expensive, but yeah i know what a pin stripe is it's just i never had them much on any car that i've owned except a 1991.5 Honda Accord Ex 4 dr. sedan, but i remember my uncles and Grandparents cars of the 70-80's had them on it, i did thought it was sort of a cool thing.

I’ll be honest the first time I heard this guy I was like hey buckshot slow down your gonna give me an aneurism!!! But the more and more I watch your videos the more I can appreciate your years and years of experience and honesty! To me honesty is the best way to get and keep friendship, business, relationships that you want to keep! So even though I’m a very quiet type but if someone is sincere, decent, reasonable, fair, and all those type of qualities well talk till your blue! It’s people that are the opposite of those that really drive me nuts! It’s not the talk it the honesty or dishonesty that makes the difference! I’ve grown to love this wild man’s videos! Good guys are getting harder and harder to come by!!

In Norway and Sweden almost every man between the age 18-25 with an old Volvo are blackmarket mechanics xD. As in they haven't gone any mechanic school or anything but perform perfect work on peoples cars for 1/10th of the price offical mechanics do.

A timing belt isn’t even that hard to replace I don’t get why they’d charge that much to do it anyways. Timing chains are usually hard than timing belts

1000% spot on, there are many unscrupulous people who call themselves mechanics but they are not! they are THIEVES... when you find an individual who knows mechanic and is honest stick with them, they are worth its weight in gold. The Chinese golden rule is "do not do onto others what you do not want done on to you." in addition Confusions really did say.... You want to have a good society you must have "rectification of names" your name is father be, act like a father, son be a son etc, mechanic be a mechanic not a F-----g thief. And before some smartazz say it, "what if your name is thief?" then people who's names are cops and judges and jailers will do their jobs and put their azz away and or at least spread the word to friends and family about crooked thieving mechanics so the freeeeken starve.

Lmao it’s funny I ran into this video and Honda tried to have me “Cut my rotors” because they had a “Lip” from the brakes digging into them.. I never did it and they never asked again.. They were charging me 550$ to do this job and I just came up with the excuse that I didn’t have the money and they just stopped telling me to do so.. Now all of a sudden my rotors fixed themselves..

I just check what the manufacturer states and ignore the service engine light that's been on for 3 years. Get the oil changed and spark plugs when needed etc...the simple stuff. It has no problems at all and it's 18 yrs old french car with a Toyota engine

I can’t believe it - I’ve sat and watched videos for the last hour, and I haven’t seen one thing that you have said that is incorrect. Brilliant channel.

Scotty this is why I'm glad I took auto mechanics in high school. Now I'm no grease monkey, but I did learn enough that if I had to do some minor work I could if push came to shove, like my brakes, or cooling system.

''Timing Belt'' is the biggest scam in modern cars, in most of them the timing belt is actually a timing chain and is located inside the car and does not need to be replaced. What they change is the serpentine belt. But they love to call it timing belt so they can charge you 100's of dollars, tell them to replace the serpentine belt and they wont like it because the cost wont be more than $100.

My wife bought a new car and it came with 2 years of free oil changes. On her last oil change I came with her and the service supervisor said that she needed to have her brake fluid flushed, I checked and it was clear and clean. The car was parked out front and had not been looked at. I told him to just change the oil and not to touch anything else. Later I got an email survey for the dealership and I called them out on the spurious diagnosis. They wanted me to come in and talk. I passed, and now we take it to a local shop I trust.

So we have a check engine light in and advance auto gave us the code for it saying it was a sensor and we took the car to the garage and gave them the code that advance told us. They said they still had to hook it up to their computer because toyota camrys have two sensors and the code they needed to see which sensor it was. The light came back on in just a couple of days. My son was worried so he took it to another garage who told us those lights can be weird sometimes and they didn’t charge him anything and told him it was nothing to worry about.

You must remember we live in a fallen world. Mechanics are people and most people lie. Find you a mechanic who's a True Christian. Born Again, Bible Reading, Holy Spirit Endowed, Christian. Hallelujah

Check their reputation and ask questions. You can judge a tree by the fruit that it bears. A bad tree cannot bear good fruit and a good tree cannot bear bad fruit.

Change the synthetic oil about every 10 -12,000 miles. New tires when they're worn and brakes when they squeak or grind. Anything else, don't replace it until it's obviously broken or defective. Don't get sucked into the nonsense of flushes etc. These are just money makers for the dealership.

I had a 1980 Chevrolet Chevette that had a bad cam that was subject to a recall. While doing the repair under warranty, the dealer called and said that the timing belt was getting worn and that they would change it for some exorbitant amount of money. I said "You have to take it off and put it back to replace the camshaft anyway, so why the high cost?" They replied, as Scotty says, "That's what the book says to charge." I told him to put the old one and that I would buy the part somewhere else and replace it myself. Stupid guy could have at least made the $$ on the belt, but he chose to lose out altogether. I never took it there for anything else and told everyone that I knew about the scam.
