      ** It could just be low or empty. Just pour pure, undilluted AF in, see howmuch it takes, then gauge the heat difference. It may take lots and be enough to make you happy.

    Scotty, any idea how hot a car engine gets? Low-temp thermostats are available for 160-180 degrees F. That's hotter than the "quick charge" batteries that concern you. What's your problem?

    Scotty, what's not fair is YOU working on a self-driving car system. You are no more qualified than you are qualified to work on self-flying airplanes. Scotty, you couldn't have a nuttier view of this issue.

    This is also a problem in the electronics industry especially with cell phones. Companies like Apple don't want to let anybody else repair their stuff.

    Why do Ford's have those tiny lines on the back window? They keep your hands warm when you're pushing it home.

    90% of all Ford's ever made are still on the road. The other 10% of the owners managed to get them towed back home.

    Hi Scotty. Enjoy all of your videos . I have a diesel car 1.6 CITROEN C4 MPV. Some days it is very slow when you put the gas on, but other days it accelerates mega fast. Some days Driving on motorway at 70 mph my foot is hard on the floor but other days at 70 mph my foot is barely on the gas pedal . ??? Citroen garage can never find a fault. Fed up with paying them. Fault is intermittent, driving me nuts. I have been driving over 50 yrs, bring back the old cars of the 50's and 60's John

    Maybe you should open a bike shop. More and more people are using bicycles without knowing how to fix them, and there is a fair amount of crossover between bicycle mechanics and automobile mechanics. Derailleurs and disc and rim brakes should be relatively easy to learn. But Internally Geared Hubs (which are epicyclic) Roller Brakes (and servicing failed Sturmey Archer Drum Brakes) and Brooks leather saddles are definitely more difficult skills to learn. But seeing as most bicycle and bicycle component manufacturers (except Rohloff, whose only products are lubricant and a $1500 14 speed gearing system and accompanying shifter that is collectively considered to be the world's finest) intend for their products to be serviced independently, and Rohloff, the one that doesn't, makes their products so well that if you use their products correctly they basically do not fail, and even if they do they have such a high caliber support team and are so good about paying for shipping to fix it (especially if it is under warranty) that nobody seems to mind much (but then, that's part of why you have to pay $1500 for their product). That said, it seems like an excellent business for you, with your already acquired knowledge of mechanics and a little studying and investigation, it seems like it would be really good for you..

    20 years ago I had a second job detailing vehicles at A Chevy Chrysler Subaru dealership and lots of the mechanics were pissed they had to go to NJ for a class, buy a $2000 laptop just to access the codes to sinc new parts to the vehicle computers,plus the dealership had to pay big bucks to access the site That held the codes

    Seems like federal court would rule against warranty voiding just as they have regarding the use of aftermarket parts.

    Why I don't buy a car too hard to maintain by nearby mechanics after the warranty period. It's a scheming business concept deserving a TOTAL CONSUMERS BOYCOTT.

    You can thank John Deere for this. Since they "won" their case to keep equipment owners from being able to connect to their computer controlled products (yes, even lawn mowers), the door is open for automakers.

    Why should they give their patented info away? The mechanics don’t have a right to fix their cars. Very few mechanics charge a fair price. What goes around comes around.

    They followed the Apple business model. Apple doesnt allow 3rd party repair facilities to buy parts or even access schematics. That way only Apple can repair their product for your safety (and their profit) AND they dont even repair easily repairable things. Instead they say you need to replace the product and if they do a repair they routinely overcharge for simple fixes.

    For those wondering about the recall mentioned in this video. From consumer reports website. Obviously check with your dealer. - Only vehicles equipped with a 5.3-liter V8 engine, four-wheel drive, and a 3.08-ratio rear axle are in the recall.

    Scotty,I've got a question. I found out that the rattle coming from my 06 Explorer 4.0 is the timing chain tensioner. This noise started recently on cold starts and usually goes away once the engine warms.I have 220K on the vehicle and hope to keep it longer. I've seen one video where the fix is as easy as replacing both tensioner units without pulling the engine. Have you had to do this or is it a bigger operation? Your advice would help me decide,Thanks.

    Hey Scotty, Please combine the short (4 letter) version of the word information, with the second word in the name of the famous George Lucas movie from the seventies, followed by dot com and make sure you poke around off and on for a week or two before you write the guy off because he covers this sort of thing every day and I think you and your viewers may be interested. All the best and thanks for helping us out of many jams!!
