Trying to get a feeler here if people think videos on car maintenance items would be good to do or not. If so, what would you all like to see? They would be somewhat on the generic side, as each…Continue
"Good idea. Start with the basics and go from there. Don't worry too much about the model car at first for the basics like oil changes, tire changing etc. as they are generically applicable. Once you get past the basics you can…"
"Mr Sterling, and others,
Currently doing a few repairs following a game of chicken with an Elk... we both went left. Already replaced radiator, but I'd be willing to take a step back for the sake of a video if there are plans to move forward…"
"Great Idea. It would be cool to see something on knowing when it is time to replace things. Things like spark plugs and the like. But I do like the idea of basic diagnostic tips and how to replace/change the right thing.
"ABSOLUTELY! I had a mechanical father and two brothers who could fix cars and my stubborn ass never saw the value in learning from them.
I can change oil and rotate tires, but I'd love to learn how to replace brake pads and…"
"I like it, though, if I may be so bold as to toot my own horn I am rather mechanically inclined. though perhaps some stuff on these newer fancy jobs we got runnin round. an occasional abnormal maintence video would be cool too. I could contribute…"
"Cool idea. . . start with basics oil change, brakes (disc and drum), battery, alternator (checking the alternator also), checking for vacuum leaks, maybe fuel pressure, struts/shocks, general tricks for breaking things loose, tricks for pulleys, A/C…"
"As a middle-aged man I have "Powers and knowledge beyond your command," like how to jump start a car, according to Mike Myers on SNL. Therefore, I think it's a good idea just in case some guys don't have access to an old fart…"

"Eh, it wouldn't hurt. That is what happens with projects like this, one little thing would snowball into a huge ordeal.
IMO the best thing to do is pick up the 290hp motor. It give you 100+more hp, is cheaper, and your stock…"
"Second ... isn't most anti-discrimination policy built 'for the 1 out of 100,000' (give or take)? It is explicitly for the protection of minorities -- the fewer the better. I have a hard time thinking special…"
"The 'policy' of not intentionally punishing the innocent is hardly "built for the 1 out of 100,000". It's a pretty fundamental policy of American jurisprudence. It's the basis of warrant law, search and…"
"Your guy isn't the rugged type. Short of trading him in for an off-road model, the best you're going to do is give him a reason to endure it because of something he enjoys -- sex, fishing, weapons, booze, wild game, motorboating…"
"Haha, my sentiments exactly Rick. I actually elected to not do this one the last time I ran a Tough Mudder. I did it once and got the token picture, no use in practicing bleeding.
Shane, this is the "electro shock therapy" an obstacle in…"
