Are you one of those drivers who trust their car mechanic fully? Good for you if you’ve found a true professional who takes good care of your vehicle! Unfortunately, not all mechanics are responsible and honest with their customers. There are several things they don't want you to know so that they can take advantage of you when you bring your car in.

SUMMARY:
- The truth is that the biggest problem with the battery comes not from the battery itself but from the wires connected to it. The spots where they're attached to the battery get damaged by corrosion.
- Various car experts state that the earliest you should start to worry about an oil change is after driving a minimum of 7,500 miles.
- You'll probably agree that no one can ignore the terrible screeching of car brakes. But the most likely cause of these terrible sounds is rust on the brake pads.
- Some car service centers attract clients by promising free bumper-to-bumper examinations of their vehicles. After you bring your car in, a mechanic will most likely discover that it has tons of problems — which need to be fixed right away.
- Don't fall for the offer of free lifetime muffler replacement! If you agree to this, you'll just end up paying more money in the long run.
- Before you drive to the garage, mark the tires with chalk. You can write the letters "RL" on the rear left tire and "FR" on the front right tire. After you get your car back, check where the marks are.
- Few people know that the most widespread reason for the check engine light to appear on your dashboard is because your gas cap isn't fastened well enough.
- Your mechanic may suggest that you buy additives for the engine, gas tank, or transmission. After you agree, you find out that these additives cost you an arm and a leg!

    James C 2 недели назад @mnementh2000 Chevy's poor tolerances or Goldilocks is up in that bit*h runnin things with the whole brake pad mounting holes too close, then too far, and then just right shenanigans. I ran into a similar experience on a 05 trailblazer on two separate occasions where the first set of brake pads fitting was off just enough to where they were useless so a second set had to be ordered. Both times The pads were marked as oem replacements and on the second brake service I ordered the exact same pads that finally fit on the last job and still had to order a second set. Got to love Chevy / GMC quality control. Haha

  • mnementh2000
    mnementh2000 1 месяц назад @George Rivera I know, but true story. I worked for Mighty Auto Parts in the warehouse, and sent the set of pads out. Since that was the first occurrence that we had run into of that happening, the delivery rep had decided that they wanted to make sure that the first shop wasn't just doing something wrong, and so had the second shop try the pads. When it came back with the opposite result, they tried once more. Needless to say, after having that happen, I decided that Chevy/ GMC wasn't a company that I wanted to buy from - in fact, pretty much any American made autos. The tolerances on American cars and trucks was set to tenths, while (at least for Japanese) foreign manufacturers set their tolerances to hundredths of an inch (American Standard scale). I don't know if the standards have been re-spec-ed, but at least the older vehicles were a bit hit and miss. That wasn't the only instance of that happening for Chevy/ GMC (and a few Ford and Mopar vehicles at the time), but it was a regular occurrence for that make and model of the time, at least in my experience during my time in the warehouse.

    George Rivera 1 месяц назад Yeah, but is the bottom there? It could have fallen off and that a serious problem. Notice the dead cars along the roadside dead. Yep, you guessed it. The bottom of their engine fell off. It's a common problem that can be prevented by tegular inspections. Bring it in for a free inspection. Let the experts inspect it for you free; that's right, you heard it here. Come in to George's Garage, home of the experts. If the doors are locked and the lights are out, knock harder. We don't call it, "Home of the Experts," for nothing.

  • mnementh2000
    mnementh2000 2 месяца назад @Matt The Builder. I worked at a auto parts warehouse, and can tell you from my experience that I wouldn't drive Chevy or GMC if I can help it. One example of why - Had three service companies order a set of brake pads for a Chevy Z71 in one day, at different intervals. The rep took a set to the first place, and the pin holes were set just too far apart to install, the next place used the same set, and they were too close together, while the third truck they fit. It comes from the fact that Chevy's tolerances are not as strict as they really need to be (as with many American-made cars). Frankly, I would sooner drive a Toyota, Mazda, Honda, or Nissan. These brands have much stricter tolerances on their products.

  • fourty5seventy
    fourty5seventy 3 месяца назад On point #2 dirty oil will most definitely damage your engine because there is dirt in your oil. If oil looks dark but is still under the manufactures recommend interval then it is dark but not dirty. Always follow your service manual and the manufacturers required service interval for oil changes or risk voiding your warranty. I could sit here for an hour typing about the things that are wrong with this video but all I can say is that when a YouTube video tells you to pour coke over your car battery there is a good chance that they don’t know they are talking about.
  • Major Havoc
    Major Havoc 1 месяц назад fourty5seventy I have used baking soda and water 50/50 for the last 48 years. This does work without the sticky mess of Coke that would draw all sorts of insects. Been a professional driver for 35 years. Our in house mechanics changed the oil every 3,000 miles or every week. We got 300,000 miles from the engines before the management replaced the vehicle. I agree that their bulb is not as bright as it could be, but take into account that most people do not perform REGULAR MAINTENANCE on their vehicles.
  • Denny Hiett
    Denny Hiett 1 месяц назад @Pete Lattimer thanks so much
  • Pete Lattimer
    Pete Lattimer 1 месяц назад @sacheverelle i always think its pointless to change the filter and not the oil. you are just filtering dirty oil. also if you needed to change oil at 3,000 miles, why do manufacturers specify MUCH longer oil changes and have ZERO issues, with many cars, even here in the UK, seeing 200,000 miles with ease, and higher mileage users (such as Taxis) seeing 500,000 miles in average cars without issues?
  • Pete Lattimer
    Pete Lattimer 1 месяц назад @Denny Hiett boiling water over the battery terminals (but NOT over the battery vent caps) works a treat too. then smear some petroleum jelly over them to prevent the corrosion returning. its common practice here in the UK
  • j k

  • Denny Hiett
    Denny Hiett 3 месяца назад @fourty5seventy Thanks for your response. I have actually used baking soda, pouring the soda on the post then water. On this site someone also suggested mixing the baking soda in water first before pouring it over the post. That may be more effective and less messy. On my newer vehicles, a Camry and Rav4 I follow the suggested oil change .
  • fourty5seventy
    fourty5seventy 3 месяца назад @Denny Hiett I am In fact a Technician and have been for 21 years. Here is a tip.. instead of coke you should use baking soda and water it does the same thing and won't leave sticky sugar syrup in the spots that you can't wash it off of. The reason I have been so successful for 21 years is because of the reputation That I have built during a career honest and reliable service and I have the clientele to back that up. So no I am not one of those "mechanics" It is amazing that you didn't change the oil in your 1991 corolla for ten years and you are certainly lucky that it didn't do any damage. But in today's modern engines that wouldn't be possible as a lot of them have variable valve timing that needs clean oil of the proper viscosity to function correctly. And with MultiAir technonogy, it will be even more vital to have clean oil. That is why I always urge my customers to follow their factory scheduled maintenance to prolong the life of their investment and maintain the factory warranty.

  • MrRedragon64
    MrRedragon64 3 месяца назад @Denny Hiett I use battery cleaner from parts store. I don't waste coke. Coke only goes with my jack and some ice while I'm cleaning my batt terminals. Heh heh
  • fourty5seventy
    fourty5seventy 3 месяца назад @Dave D At 2:24 in the video "some mechanics will tell you that dirty oil can damage your car engine" which it will. Every engine will get debris from cold starts and carbon deposits that break down and make their way into the crankcase. The oil filter can only remove so much of this debris before the filter clogs and the bypass valve kicks in. At that point the oil bypasses the filter and if left unchanged can damage the engine. It is always recommended to follow the OEM maintenance because they built the vehicle and know what is best for it. However if someone chooses to leave their oil changes go for longer that is up to them but the dealer may not honour the warranty.I don't want people to change their oil too early but I do want them to follow the OEM recommendations so that they can protect their investment and get the most out of it.

  • DJ AYVO Flores
    DJ AYVO Flores 3 месяца назад Nice Adding Coke (pop) to the battery terminals is the lazy, dumbest, and a dirty waste. Clyde, what you'd want to do is put half a cup of baking soda into a pitcher and add warm water. Might not need so much, depending on the amount of the corrosion.
  • Bogtrotter
    Bogtrotter 3 месяца назад @Leo Bonin "adds a quart every 6 months or so but never changes it." That's the same as changing it every year or so.
  • Bogtrotter
    Bogtrotter 3 месяца назад ​@Denny Hiett You are only cleaning the outside surface of the clamps. Once in a while remove the clamps and clean the insides back to bright metal with a terminal cleaner or emery cloth. Do the same on the battery posts. Replace the clamps back on the posts and tighten up really tight. They shouldn't move. Then smear the lot with battery grease or even Vaseline to stop any corrosion.

    Dosedmonkey 2 месяца назад Oil burns off and evaporates??? You mean oil that passed the rings burns and leaves carbon deposits that get dragged in to the sump which is the dirt!!! Awful advice!
  • Pete Lattimer
    Pete Lattimer 1 месяц назад @Khidreal in fact currently (certainly in Europe) engines are designed TO use a little oil. the use of thinner oils (5w30 is common and has been increasingly so for over 25 years now) means it passes the rings and into the combustion chamber more easily, but tolerances cant be tightened or excessive drag and wear will be caused, either (or both) of which will increase the emissions levels.
  • Khidreal
    Khidreal 1 месяц назад a small amount of oil passes to the combustion chamber every time there is an explosion on the chamber. it's normal, even for a new car, to waste some oil and that is called the oil evaporation process because when the explosion happens the oil actually evaporates and leaves the engine into the exhaust system.
  • Faw Shaw
    Faw Shaw 2 месяца назад @Joe Shabidu by the service booklet. It will have the date and odometer reading recorded at last service. If the service records have been lost it may be worth doing an inspection of the oil and changing it if it looks very dark. If you know the history of the car and know where it was last serviced you can ask them if they have a copy of the last service.

    Joey Diaz Неделю назад @sri nandu still its not that simple. Giving advice thats wrong well its wrong. Follow the manufacturer recomendations. The manual. If its Pre 1990 stay with conventional and every 3k miles
  • sri nandu
    sri nandu 3 недели назад switch to synthetic, avoid sludge, go longer than 3k miles say 7.5 k miles for oil change, if needed change the filter at 3k. This may be the balance in reducing environmental waste as well as money spent.
  • Joey Diaz
    Joey Diaz 1 месяц назад (изменено) @Steinar Danielsson your right. My wife and I have two very diffferent vehicles. Her manual recomends every 7500. And full synthetic is what I use. Mine is a 1986 Nissan pickup. And its every 3000. And I only use conventional. Becuase not having zinc in synthetic can ruin the old motors.
  • Jack Straw Jr 2
    Jack Straw Jr 2 1 месяц назад charlotte quillen. Isn't it odd that first they say don't change your oil any sooner than 10k miles, then they say the best way to improve the way your engine runs and to minimize pollution is to change the oil regularly...
  • Steinar Danielsson
    Steinar Danielsson 2 месяца назад @Gaming Legend Don't you guys ever read the owners handbook ? It tells you when to change oil. If you drive an old worn out Chevy from 1980 it might be smart to change oil more often, but modern cars with modern oils ; it is a total waste of money to change at 3000 miles. Your HOT ROD Magazine tested oil a few years ago and found that if the car-manufacturer did not stress that you should use synthetic oil, semi-synthetic was just as good and you would save a lot of money.

  • Hunor Magyar
    Hunor Magyar 3 месяца назад Yeah. It's best to learn to do at least basic things like oil replacement etc. by yourself. If you know what to do, you will only need to go to a mechanic when you don't have some special item for it (I had a bit of trouble talking about this as my English is just too basic, sorry). Making it yourself costs much less, my father for example, had a crash by the other driver's fault, the mechanic said it's totaled, as the repair would cost more than the car itself, before the crash. However, he didn't give up, he repaired it himself for much cheaper, it wasn't a truly big damage luckily, the engine and things were all fine, it was just the payment for the mechanic that made the situation look so bad for a while.

    Alfred Wilson 2 месяца назад Tom Moore So you disagree with what he says about the battery? I must admit, that he didn’t mention a loose alternator belt ( which can cause an alternator to go bad) thus drain your battery. I’ve seen this many of times and people buy a new battery, only to have it drained again, then it’s discovered, that the alternator is bad and they ended up replacing both. The same holds true with loose or corroded cables.

    Vikas Shelke 3 месяца назад (изменено) Frequent oil changes are must in all IC engines. Just topping up reduces the engine performance as all residues which are hamrfull are left in engine. Engine oil is core component of an engine and not just lubricant. A sheared engine oil will loose ability to stick to sliding surface reducing compression and friction will reduce engine life. 7500kms is too much for average running car. Best bet is 5000to 6000kms if manufacture recommends 7500-10000kms oil change

  • Alfred Wilson
    Alfred Wilson 2 месяца назад Casual_jerry I respectfully disagree. Proper air pressure in every tire on the vehicle is key not only to the longevity of the tire, but also the role in which the tire plays to contribute to maximum performance of the vehicle.

    Ginger Smithers Welch 2 месяца назад Om Chatterjee : This video is simply stating "Consumer.... Be Aware" and giving the reasons why. Maybe the points mentioned are top complaints reported to the Better Business Bureau, in their area. I will admit that I've been to a business or 2 that have tried to get me to have them do more work than necessary. Hence the reason I do the majority of my own wrenching. Besides, who is most likely to watch YouTube videos? Teens & young adults. Who is less likely to know anything about mechanics? The answer is the same. It's not meant to thoroughly educate anyone, I'm sure. I believe it to be aimed at those who haven't lived yet. So please, don't be a hater. Not everyone can match ur wits. Sincerely & Good Day

    vulkus Banks 2 месяца назад @charlie dee Did you stop to consider that the person meant, the transference of dust to the pads? Sintered pads can form rust particles. I ride motorbikes, it does happen.
  • charlie dee
    charlie dee 2 месяца назад @vulkus Banks They may not however I do and they are right, these idiots have no clue. My evidence? Number 3, rust on the brake pads. Brake pads DO NOT rust, even the semi metallic ones. Rotors, yes they can get rusty. But a rotor is a completely different part then a pad.

I can assure you that no mechanic will change his own car's oil over 10k Kms

  • Caliom
    Caliom 3 месяца назад Some very misinformed info in this video, more of a scare attempt. Try extending your coolant changes to 100,000m for example and see the corrosion which can damage components and gaskets. Oil changes should be carried out more frequently if you only do very short journeys, combustion acids dilute the properties leading to increased wear. If you drive around on 90% worn brake pads, you run the risk of overheating your brakes and cause an accident.

There is also a light on ur car telling u low oil pressure that light come on they didn’t do it which also means they owe u an engine if it messed up and why would they purposely damage ur car when ur most likely not going to pay for that to be fixed pal
