  • Last month we got 3.5 feet of snow and it completely buried my car. I had to snowblow around it just to get near. I took a photo and when I show it to people they say where is it and I say that white lump.

  • Chris i just want you to know that you are doing the work of a hero with all these DIY repair/replacement videos. You are seriously changing peoples lives. Feeling confident in knowing how your car functions and how the components work, AND how to diagnose/fix any issues is a huge thing for people. I'm sure some people come here not even knowing what the part they are trying to replace does for the car.. But by the time they leave (and hopefully fixed their car with your help) they feel like they learned real useful knowledge. Obviously doing the labor yourself saves you the money, but it also gives you satisfaction of having done something to immediately, positively change your situation... Something that now-a-days maybe most people don't know how to do You can sleep at night knowing that this is some of the best , most helpful content on the site. As someone who did level one automechanics in free college, and fixes my own hondas all the time, you have taught me a lot of things bout working smarter, not harder. Sad that most people have no interest in the mechanics of their car. Automobiles and I.C.E are truly amazing human creations Sorry if you actually read this whole comment, I wish you all the best in life.

  • Do you have any tips for getting salt and mud combined off off interior door panels... I have tried vinegar and it does mot work. I got stuck and had to dig out took about2 hours and I was in and out of the car and brought the mix of snow salt and mud to the interior with me. I really enjoy your videos and how you have improved how you make your videos...

  • Unfortunately I know all about snow and ice. Many decades of the junk, time to move and enjoy 12 months of the year, not only 6 months. Fuel cools your fuel pump, so never drive on empty unless you like replacing fuel pumps.

  • Please do not leave your windshield wipers up during the winter. They are engineered to withstand wind forces from a specific angles, and if you leave them up it can catch the wind from multiple angles which could lead to the plastic gear that operates the windshield wiper breaking and you needing to get it replaced. Use the cover, put your wipers down onto the cover. Also, a bottle filled with Alcohol can clear ice if you forget to do all this one day. Just get a spraybottle with Alcohol in it.
