This Car Mod is Stupid

This Car Mod is Stupid


rev your engines mg says scotty in a
modern vehicle if someone were to put a cold air intake and free-flowing exhaust
with the fuel management system dump more fuel in the gaining any increases
in fuel economy you can’t just take off the factory equipment throw stuff like a
cold air intake different exhausts without reprogramming the car on any
modern car if you want it to really run correctly there but all kinds of studies
done where they tested them before and after putting the cold air intakes and
exhaust and find out that over time they wouldn’t run right unless they reprogram
your computer is measuring stuff with the oxygen sensors and the back pressure
and all kinds of stuff and if you just change it on the computer doesn’t know
it’s not gonna guess right and a car won’t run right so don’t do that it’s a
stupid thing to do anyway race guys do it yeah man they got guys that program
one before the race every race to take in consideration the temperature the
humidity the barometric pressure the altitude all kinds of stuff you can’t
just bolt I don’t think it’ll run better right obonda hey Scotty what do you
think of the honda civic type-r those are excellent screaming little cars now
they’re not giving them away they’re close to 40 grand now they are a
race design civic with a fast engine they only come in a standard
transmission I get a customer just bought one I love driving around he
brought it over here to let me drive it around see what it’s like I was
impressed now Scotty’s a cheapskate I’d never buy a new one it costs too much
money I have to wait until they got really old and my Toyotas jelly don’t
break so you know I got three cars in one person I have no reason to buy
anymore so I probably never will they’re excellent little cars they handle they
got tons of acceleration a lot of horsepower but there are expenses
they’re not giving those things away from what I’ve seen they’re generally
even a scan over sticker price at the dealer because they’re selling them so
fast cuz people want that type of car small little zippy racecar that’s what
they’re gonna buy Cheyenne Martha Scottie I’m problem put my gear in
reverse sometimes they’re a terrible noise and when I put it in reverse it
takes several tries for it moves cars the Suzuki Swift low mileage maybe low
mileage but it’s a Suzuki Swift Suzuki’s do not make good cars which is kind of
because they make fantastic motorcycles I add a Suzuki 750 she said thing 159
miles an hour started every time had a great sound never leaked oil this is the
crate motor stuff I gave it to my son their cars exact opposite kind of junky
clunky little things they don’t sell Suzuki’s in the United States anymore
the cars cuz they sold so bad they pulled out of the United States entirely
new transmissions going out you hear noise and it doesn’t move it’s just flat
going out the money it costs to fix one of those things my advice is if you can
find a used transmission there small vehicles maybe see what a guy charged to
put one in and gamble with the used transmission but I wouldn’t put too much
money into that thing they’re not worth anything if you’re in the United States
now other parts of the world a lots of guys fix them in the parts availability
is higher so you might just have it fixed then if you live in Europe or
Australia or something but in the United States it’s not worth fixing really see
says Scotty I got a 2002 rsx when I let go of the gas the car seems to lurch forward what do you think is the issue 99% of the
time when you’re driving a car and you let go of the accelerator and it lurches
you got an automatic transmission problem that it’s just catching and
that’s what happens they kind of lurch it’s sad but true now let’s say you got
a standard transmission well in that case if it lurks when you took off in a
gas it could be a problem in your fuel management system worse when you take
your foot off the gas it’s confused and it’s supposed to let the fuel injectors
gradually lose fuel and I might be cutting them off too fast and then
turning them back on I can lurch most of the time they do it on those it’s an
automatic transmission if the transmission starting to collage now the
other hand I think customers the cars like that and they drove them for 2-3
years more and they still went down the road and they just live with little bit
alerts when it again doesn’t necessarily mean you got to rebuild the transmission
right away Oh doc says a Walmart brand oil and synthetic long miles filters any
good sure yeah Walmart doesn’t make anything they just buy stuff from other
people there’s nothing wrong with buying their synthetic oil all the oil is sold
in the United States has to meet certain standards in anyways when you buy a
higher-end long mileage filter fram makes them for them and the same one is the high-end Fram and the high-end Frams
are excellent filters now the low end frames are crap because they’re just
cheaply made low price it’s no arguing that but fram have been making oil filters for a long time they also make high-end
filters and they make them for a lot of different companies do and they’re all
the same because fram is making them and if you are gonna buy one of those friends
do buy the extended one because it’s a much better filter than their cheap ones
that are just the normal ones they’re a lot better built, I got a whole video on that
you can watch radioactive bananas’s I don’t want a new car as I can’t fix them
maybe in a program child, give me a 65 Pontiac Bonneville is my first car
I love the tanks yeah well you could something old like that sure they’re
easier to work on I was working on customers car he had bought a 65 Mustang GT and yeah it’s a fancy little car wasn’t really nice shined up one but
it’s simple defects it’s got a carburetor bolts on kind of five-speed
transmission they put an aftermarket on that but still it’s a standard
transmission simple to drive less things to figure out to go wrong cuz you’re
doing a shift not computers so you know if it’s not chipping right you know
you’re not doing it right or you need a new clutch it’s pretty much what goes
wrong with them real simple mechanical stuff you can
easily fix yourself there’s not a bad idea buying something like that the only
real downfall something like a 60 I it’s gonna get horrible gas mileage those old
cars are big heavy tanks and they suck the gas down there’s no arguing that and
you’re gonna get in the teens in town there’s no or even lower you might get
six miles a gallon with you driving hard in town, rss production says Scotty
I got an 05 Acura MDX 206,000 miles would you recommend using royal purple
oil and that old of the vehicle well yeah it’s actually wrong I know a lot of
people that use it for their race cars now the Acura is a pretty high-tech
engine the v6 engine and those are pretty high-tech engines time to make
some they’re excellent engines and if you don’t mind spending that kind of
money for the oil it’s kind of overkill cuz I’m sorry you’re not gonna be
raising it you’re not taking it to the high extremes but especially if you live
in a place like Alaska work it’s real cold or North Dakota sure it’s a better
oil because it flows better when it’s cold outside in that case you better off
getting a really good oil like that because it will flow better than a
regular oil cuz it’s made for colder and higher temperatures it’s got a longer
temperature range than the other oil pantera says Scotty my cruise control
stopped working in my 90s accord what can I do to fix it okay well it’s an old
car at least the old ones were mechanical and vacuum activator
there’s vacuum lines that go to it sometimes they fall off rot and they
suck air and then it’s not gonna work and the actuator that’s by your throttle
that also is a vacuum solenoid that could have a care in the diaphragm and
that’d need replacing of course check the fuses make sure the switch works
when you turn it on and off now if it’s not that then it’s the module and
they’re so expensive and I think so old if you really want a cruise control my
advice go get a guy installing aftermarket ones they’re not all that
expensive and you can just start from scratch because that kind of stuff
modules for those aren’t old Honda you’ll be able to get it at Honda dealer
if they still sold them and it would cost a small fortune for usually $100 you can get a kit to put a brand new one on the whole system and just do
that rather than try to fix that old thing matthew miller says Scotty what are
your thoughts about a car made entirely of plastic well you know strangely
enough oh she’s just like thirty years ago I was reading Popular Mechanics
magazine rather ironic now that I’m like the most popular mechanic and I read it and ford was working on this pinto engine and they were making the whole thing out
of plastic the Pistons everything and of course the thing melted after a while
and all the plastic parts broke making a car totally out of plastic not a smart
idea now I mean if we’re all gonna be riding around in tiny little cars I
guess you could make the bodies and everything out of plastic they wouldn’t
weigh much they’d get better fuel economy or electric cars make the bodies
out of plastic and if everybody’s driving a small plastic car it’s
perfectly fine but on the other hand if you got guys driving big semi trucks and
about 350 trucks down the road and you’re in this tiny little plastic car
if they run into you can kiss your hiney goodbye so, David says hey Scotty
I got an 06 Ford Ranger the AC works on Max AC but not on normal what’s the
problem if you have to turn it on max ain’t
seeing it blows cold and you put on regular AC and it doesn’t blow at all
probably you need a new control unit that switches sound like what controls
it is turn it when it’s on regular AC and also a power when it’s unmatched if
it only has power once on max that generally means that switch assembly is
broken if by any chance you mean that it only blows on high-speed but not on any
of the lower speeds that’s the ball or motor resistor or something in that case
you’d buy a new blower motor resistor some because when they go bad you’ll
lose different speeds but you’ll always have full speed because it bypasses the
resistor for full speed so you might want to check that too, Jarrett’s Kayla
says this guy’s got he doesn’t have any clue he’s ours you’re painting himself
well the reason I’m repeating myself because people ask similar questions so
I have to give them the correct answer the correct answer will be a repeat of one
of my previous ones cuz I’m telling the truth now if I was a liar I’d be giving different answers it’s the same question
all the time but I’m repeating myself because I’m giving you the correct
answer over and over and over again so people will understand what the truth is
and not make up lies every time something’s good yeah it’s telling the
truth could be boring after a while if you keep telling the truth even that’s
why people lie all the time in our society they’re bored so they just
decided to lie to make things a little spicier and make this a little more
action to me I’m old-fashioned I just tell the truth all the time,
