        @Brizuh K 👍 💖🌎, ☮️

      3. Brizuh K

        Black Opal yeah yuh low tire pressure and old tires is what is it

      4. Black Opal

        ** 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.

      5. Ryan Smith

        I agree with you! I only wanted to start with simple and basic things before begging for something that costs more money.

    2. 76

      Scotty you must be a Democrat!! Lol

    3. Timmyc4t

      Scotty is the BEST !

    4. veerraju tv

      Really as you said it has become very big problem,keeping the technical information about vehicles in secret. Not allowing the independent mechanics to learn and work upon cars. Even today We are finding it very difficult to get Service manuals of Newly launched Cars or Old cars. Car companies want to continue mint money through their authorized service stations. This is very BAD. No Democracy.

    5. Will Carter

      If the car manufacturers could get away with it, they'd scrub the word "mechanic" from our memories and replace it with a "certified technician". The problem started with consumer protection and ASE certifications, aka government intervention.

    6. Michael John Renzi

      Are you a cat or dog person. Haha... love the couch !! haha

    7. Larry Dommer

      I didn't know you were a mechanic. I thought you were a comedian. Your videos always make me laugh.

    8. Brian Palmer

      Adore your videos Scott . I don't like over statement... like on this one.

    9. PMFL

      I see a lot of your videos and only today i noticed you are a cat person. 😃

      6 months into a 3-year lease of a 2019 Subaru Crosstrek (best car I've ever had). I drive 20K miles/year in Upper Michigan and this early winter proved out the AWD control and stability I was looking for. You actually have to control the tendency to OVERDRIVE the car - because it can GO like a mother, but it can't STOP like a mother. Considering snow tires just to get better stopping power in the snow. Downsides: Defroster is underpowered - and, while you can Remote Start the car in full defost mode that mode doesn't seem to be available via the selector knob. Weird. Also, on a dry road I had a pickup turn left in front of me, plenty of room - but it didn't clear the LEFT lane fast enough for the Eyesight System, which AGGRESSIVELY applied the brakes. I don't want a repeat on snow or ice...

    11. theawaitinggargoyle

      I like how you sound like Joe Pesci.

    12. Porsche924Tim

      The consumer and independent mechanics are already protected by the Magnuson-Moss Act in 1975... dealers cannot void warranties if the work was done in a shop other than a dealer... this is not an issue. All good automotive mechanics should be aware of this...

    13. happios

      I wonder if Scotty can make a video with his hands tied behind his back 🤔

    14. Trigger Warning

      Absolutely hate the new cars 👎

    15. Tom Stidham

      Had to get the front passenger seat replaced in my Hyundai, independent could replace the seat but they were unable to reset the air bag light, had to take it back to dealer.

    16. Austin Orr

      Ill keep my 98 chevy and laugh at all the morons buying 40k cell phones with wheels

    17. Royce Lilienstern

      Your a mechanic? I thought you were a comedian doing Automotive skits for MNsel

    18. Allen Anderson

      I'll never own a car that has any control over my steering or brakes.

    19. J Louis

      Even the auto audio market drastically changed since the radio in a vehicle today is integrated in the computer system.

    20. Millennium Productions

      Scotty, great videos! Here's a head scratcher for ya... 1996 Chevy Impala SS, the "Change oil light" won't reset. I can turn the light off and on manually with the TEC II plugged in, but the light comes back on when it's disconnected, and there is nowhere in the menu that allows for a manual reset. Have you ever seen this before, and do you know where the circuitry for that oil life system lives? There is seemingly little information online anywhere, and the dealer has no clue, so you're the last hope!!

    21. HighSierraOverland

      For my 4Runner, Toyota charges I think $1,000 for their repair manual.

    22. John Kocolowski

      This is my last Scotty “Rambler” nonsense video I will ever waste my time watching.

    23. Baris Metin

      bmw liked this video! :D

    24. betatalk357

      What this is going to do is drastically drop car prices. Or people will just lease it, beat it up like a rental, then dump them back on the dealer. Nobody is going to want a 3 year old car, beat to hell and going to break sooner.

    25. Sudipta Sarania

      Sir suggest some degreaser,plastic polish,or engine cleaner that doesn't damage any modern car engine bay electrical components like ecu,sensor,fusebox etc pls suggest each of one

    26. antonio rodriguez

      outstanding, from PUerto Rico, sir YOU are BOSSSSSSSSS>>>>>

    27. demonetization


    28. Barry Bretz

      This is what they did to the individual TV repairman . To get the same schematics you needed to either pay 49.00 for a schematics. Now to replace a ic you need to cool down the ic in steps over time for the advanced solder different types they use. Expensive equipment to do correct.

    29. Anthony E. Idealistic Woodworks

      I've had more problems with Ford's ABS systems than ANY GM products braking systems or even Chrysler corp. Ford's actually caused me to get into an accident on dry pavement at 30 mph figure that one out there Scotty!

    30. A Fat Bird

      I thought you were going to say cuz you're are rich beyond your wildest dreams.

    31. J Shaw

      His thumbnails crack me up

    32. Windy City Rideshare

      Car manufacturers and dealerships now make most of their money from repairing the cars. So they are incentivized to make unreliable cars. Does anybody else see a problem with that?

    33. Joseph Klimchock

      This was the reason decades ago for OBD that all scan tool cables could be plugged in to a "universal" connector...........I smell a big lawsuit by the aftermarket auto repair shops........

    34. AllMine Awesome Things

      U ain't looking Kool with the glasses n I call shenanigans u r full of oil.

    35. Erik Capozzi

      Its okay .this goofballs bias videos arent really needed anymore....

    36. FunGames

      I was watching to find out why he can't be mechanic any more. But the drama queen stuff just go on and on. I gave up and never did find out why. Most people drive used cars, and most mechanics fixed used cars. So, who cares about warranty? BMWs have the most widely available info out there, given their popularity with poor young males. Get one of those, and you are good to go.

    37. mogynamite008

      Cool stuff Scotty!

    38. Joe's Auto Electric

      He's actually dead wrong about most of what he says here. I agree with him talking about "fair" price for information, however, we have a right to repair as independent shops. The fact is, if a car is under manufacturer warranty, why would you take it someplace to have it fixed where you'd have to pay? Most cars today come with a 3/36 and 5/60 for powertrain. Some come with 10/100, so indy shops won't see a model year until it is out of warranty most of the time. The ability to gain access to modules and other such information is absolutely there for indy shops.

    39. worseto1

      Yeah watch it when they start offering long long drive train warranties Ford has in all their manufacturing plants make the cheapest parts possible and we don't care to give you 100,000 mile warranty worst car on the road I built em for 20 years.

    40. Sean Savage

      Embarrassing that people are listening to this guy.. He's just milking MNsel... I dont get it

    41. Matthew Green

      Right to repair.

    42. ABDUL KHAN

      When companies can buy politicians then citizens pay for that company to recover it back. Auto business is a big monopoly.

      1. strattuner

        the car dealerships are on a boat heading for a iceberg,some of the guys I trained are telling me how bad it is in the shops,cutthroat is the last gasp

    43. Gary Evans

      Harley Davidson is doing this crap and have for years. No one can buy the diagnostic tools or programs.

    44. Daniel J


    45. x2xtreme360

      Because he was a mechanic in the 1960s and doesn't understand today's modern technology. Clearly.

    46. Marcus Taylor

      Reminds me of that scene from Fight Club. Narrator: A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one. Woman on plane: Are there a lot of the kinds of accidents? Narrator: You wouldn't believe. Woman: Which car company do you work for? Narrator: A major one.

    47. John Whorton

      We should make them guarantee their products for 150000 miles parts and labor. I bet they could improve both quality and ease of service

    48. Sire Kakes'A'Lot

      There is a reason why the mitsubishi mirage has continually had positive upwards sales despite being a subcompact car and being cheaply made. Simply the fact that it is so cheap and easy to maintain without all the over complicated technology and voided warranties present. Most manufacturers don't realize that many people don't want, need, or use most of this extra technology and just want a affordable, basic car that they can fix or can take to their trusted mechanic. As cars become more expensive and ridiculous to maintain, expect another crash in the car market as more people keep their more reliable older cars or stick with simpler cars like the mirage.

    49. fredgt45

      I just took a snapchat of my VIN

    50. atl growganics

      John Deere is notorious for this as well. For years they have the only "programming" available.

    51. Mark Christopher

      Scotty u always are hating on Nissan like almost all ur videos u bash Nissan at least twice ..

    52. Tony Mata

      Scott what you think a 2003 Acura TL type s bought 1 for 1k .

    53. alf

      Just dont buy their crap

    54. Jason Sierchio

      Your voice sounds like a clone of Ron Paul... must be an accent? I wasn't watching, just listening, and I was like wth is Ron Paul talking about fixing cars

    55. Tim

      The free-market won't allow this to happen too long I would hope. The arrogance of these car companies is just rediculous.

    56. Billy Kuan

      Why do I need all these so called safety items? I can back my car up just fine, I stay in my lane and know where I am going. Only the braking computer seems useful and worth the money. I personally think driving standards are dumbed down enough.

    57. Awesome Sauce

      Pressure monitor in my Tahoe broke inside the tire and the dealer threatened to void the warranty on the car if I took it to a tire shop that wasn't them

    58. robert proctor

      Have you looked in the sky lately? CHEMTRAILS!!!!!!!! it,s passed what the yuygohugouygouyfiyufuyg YOU THINK!!!

    59. Trampuskeen Keen
