In this video I replace the front brake pads on a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.

In this video I replace the "trunk struts" aka the liftgate struts on a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

A compilation of bad drivers and the epidemic of expired paper plates captured from the dash cam of my cars while driving around the St. Louis area. This is what zero traffic enforcement looks like.

In this video "I" show you how to replace the tensioner pulley on a BMW e46 330 xi with a manual transmission.

In this video I replace the factory battery in my 2010 Camaro SS with a used one I got from Pick n Pull. I paid like $30.00 for this battery and it has about 75-80% of its life left, whereas the factory battery is down to 50% health.

In this video I show you how to replace the air filter in a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with the 3.7 liter V6.

In this video I show you how to replace the driver side headlight on a 2005 Dodge Neon. The passenger side light can be replaced with the headlight still in the car. The driver side light must be removed in order to replace the bulb (9007).

In this video I address the dreaded wet trunk issues plaguing the Gen 5 Camaro. These cars (when equipped with a sunroof) leak into the trunk when it rains or after a carwash.

In this video I replace the rear O2 sensor (bank 1) on a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.7 V6. This vehicle has a trouble code P0420 stating the catalyst system efficiency is below threshold (bank 1). Maybe it's a bad cat or maybe it's a bad rear O2 sensor. Either way, I show you the cheapest and easiest way fix the issue by replacing the suspect O2 sensor on that bank, and affix a cheater device to trick the ECU in case it actually is a bad cat without replacing the cat.

In this video a seemingly easy to replace maintenance item ends up being a horror show. This is how you replace seized and rusted sway bar end links.

In this video I diagnose a bad tensioner and idler pulley on a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 with the 3.7 liter V6. I replace both pulleys and the serpentine drive belt.

In this video I travel to a customer's house to fix his 2007 GMC Yukon Denali that has a cooling system issue. Per him, his car was leaking coolant and he paid his neighbor to fix it. The neighbor scratched and bent the heater core fitting, and a nearby metal pipe and destroyed the o-rings inside the plastic 3-way fitting attempting to replace the new plastic fitting the owner purchased.

Essentially, the owner paid someone to do more damage to his car and break his new parts. I fix the car properly to the best of my ability after the owner purchased new parts again for me to properly fix the coolant leak.

In this video I explain and demonstrate how to replace the blower motor in my 2002 Ford Crown Victoria P71.

In this video I explain and demonstrate how to diagnose the difference between a bad catalytic converter vs a bad post-cat oxygen sensor on a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I use a scan tool to pull a DTC P0420 (Diagnostic trouble code: catalyst system efficiency below threshold). I then look at live sensor data, a graph and use an infrared thermometer to check catalytic converter temperatures.

In this video I explain and demonstrate how to replace the headlight assembly in a 2003 Lincoln Town Car. In a previous video I explained and demonstrated how to replace the headlight bulbs after one of my low beams burned out. The procedures are similar enough since the assembly must be removed in order to replace the bulb that you can watch either video and know how to replace the bulb or assembly, but they are their own videos for the sake of people searching for "headlight bulb replacement" vs "headlight assembly replacement".

Vitaliy Kofman needs some plastic retaining rings for a Lincoln Town Car cut down to size so he can put them in his headlight assemblies and install LED low beams. I find some interesting stuff in the junk yard and get the plastic deals so I can cut them down to size for him.

In this video I explain and demonstrate how to bleed the brakes on your car. This particular vehicle in this video is a 2002 Crown Victoria but this procedure is generally the same on all other vehicles. Bleeding the brakes will remove any air in the system and should be done should the brake system develop a leak, or you replace a component that required you to open the system and expose it to air.

Brake fluid also absorbs moisture and should be done every two years. I do not replace it that often, but it should at least be done every time you replace the brake pads to prevent the fluid from rusting the calipers or the lines from the inside, and seizing the bleeder valves inside the calipers.

In this video I replace the water pump on my friend, Latonya's BMW E46 330xi with a manual transmission. She said after driving and parking, she came back to find a puddle of coolant under her car. She had it towed home. I suspected a water pump and went to her house to pressure test the cooling system. My diagnostics confirmed my original suspicion.

She ordered a new water pump and today, we are going to replace it for her and get her back on the road.

In this video I explain and demonstrate how to replace the IAC (idle air control valve) on a 2002 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor (P71) with the 4.6 L V8.

This channel will mostly feature vehicle "how to's" along with occasional dash camera footage reference automobiles. The vehicles that I own are a 1993 Corvette LT1, 2000 BMW 740iL, 2002 Ford Crown Victoria P71 and 2010 Camaro SS. These vehicles will be the bulk of vehicles featured in the repair videos. Occasionally I work on other people's cars and will feature that content as well.
