Here’s Why GM Really Pisses Me Off

Here’s Why GM Really Pisses Me Off


rev up your engines machinist said
when did GM make good cars a long time ago I learned to drive on a Chevy
Biscayne had a big v8 engine man that was a well-built vehicle yeah it wasn’t
that great on gas but gas back then was thirty five cents a gallon so people
didn’t care all that much and it was a solid reliable vehicle then in the 70s I
started getting weaker and then in the 80s they started making junk and in
since then they’ve gone down even further but back in the day and way back
in my grandfather’s day yeah they made great vehicles but times are changing
they didn’t file with the times they just started making things cheaper and
cheaper that’s the way the cookie crumbles if you’re a big corporation
then you end up not caring about your customers anymore look at the thing they
had with the ignition switch they lied about they had problems they even
changed the part number to make it look like it was a different one I mean any
company that does that’s just saying they don’t care about you we’re working
access 2010 Tahoe PPV good choice no bad choice it’s a ten year old GM and they
fall apart now I have customers that have bought those because they wanted a vehicle had a lot of space inside which it does have but then every single one
of them said oh it was always breaking the transmission would go out the
electronics would go out they’re not very well made vehicles and they’re big
they hold a lot of people but over time they’re not dependable and that one’s
ten years old now cuz the 2020 models are out don’t buy it unless you get a
dirt cheap and it’s got less than a hundred thousand miles and you’re only
gonna use it like on a weekend so do stuff you can’t buy something like that
and expect to drive at fifteen twenty thousand miles a year it’ll fall apart
and cost you a fortune item or says Scotty I just purchased my
first used car what do you think of it oh seven a Volvo v70 2.5 d5 what should
I look at for it his one hundred and eighteen thousand miles on it alright I
hope you didn’t pay much for it because as they age Volvo’s often become endless
money pits but if you get one cheap enough you never know it might last
awhile I got a customer’s got one of those
things and they bought it used from a friend for a couple grand they have fun
driving around they’re nice luxurious cars there’s no arguing that but they
have very weak automatic transmissions you want to baby that you want to change
the engine oil I would change it every 4,000 miles
on that one because you don’t want to ruin that expensive Volvo engine they’re
very expensive but they’re well made and just you keep loyal don’t I’ll read them
they can’t last quite some time so you know good luck but I just hope you
didn’t pay too much money if Volvo isn’t making regular gasoline and diesel cars
anymore the Chinese on the mouth and they say they’re gonna go electric
eventually you nobody’s gonna make parts of the things anymore, Sam says Scotty when I was turning left about 10 miles an hour
gave it a bit gas to transmissions lifts what’s going on well unfortunately the
transmissions going out if they start slipping there’s only two things that
can make them slip either you see the axle is breaking down and it’s slipping
because when you turn it’s not grabbing anymore or the transmissions going out
but you said it slipped when the axles go they almost always Clank you hear them then you know they’re worn out that’s obvious and jack it up you see
the rubber boots are ripped the grease is coming out pray it’s that but normally if it
actually slips the transmissions starting to go out but pray it’s one of
the joints and if it’s the inner joint they can sometimes pop out and slip like
that and then go back in pray it’s your CV axle with the joints going bad and
not the transmission itself jack says what are your thoughts on rotary engines
well the German that invented a Wankel had an interesting idea because really
when you think about it piston engines the Pistons go up and down and up and
down and they spin a crankshaft up and down so they got to go up and then they
got a stop and go down where a Wankel rotary engine is rotor it just spins it
is kind of a triangular wedge shaped thing with seals on the ends the apex it
wasn’t spins around so great ideas started going up and down it spins more
efficient right well actually not because they get horrible gas mines that
was a problem when Mazda first sold those early model was the Wankel engines the mazda cosmo are great piles of junk anything got like 80 miles a gallon but
the worst thing was it had a four-barrel carburetor on it and they were so poorly
made little seals that as they age never you turn them off you turn them off in
your count one two three and they go bang cuz gas
oh and the exhaust heat up and then explode their absolute piles of junk now
in the end there were decent engines but they always either burned oil or
polluted too much so you know that’s what you gotta worry about with those
but I was just reading Mazda maybe bringing it back again but in a real
oddball seems they’re working on electric vehicles but they don’t have a
long enough range for the United States so they said they’re gonna have an
electric vehicle then they’re gonna put a wrinkle engine in it as the range
extender to make it go further so would be an electric motor when it ran out of
battery power the real Wankel engine would run apart
which isn’t a bad idea cuz see they’re small they don’t take up much space so
it would be a good backup motor really I just read that so who knows maybe
they’ll come to fruition one day Omar Lopez I got a note six Honda
Odyssey I lose power steering fluid my mechanic can’t find a leak says the
houses are good we’re going on for six months could it be the pump yeah it
could be lots of things one you need a real mechanic guys an idiot
anybody can find leaks these days they make ultraviolet leak dye and it’s great
stuff you pour a little bit like in that case about a quarter of an ounce of the
dye in the power steering reservoir then you see where the leak comes out using
an ultraviolet light and yellow sunglasses you can get a kit for like 25
bucks at autozone for stuff like that either the hose is leaking or the pump
is leaking or the rack is leaking but wherever it’s leaking it’s leaking so
it’s gonna be dripping out and that dye which shows either bright yellow or
bright green when you test it will show you where the leak is from my experience
of those Honda’s it’s almost always the high-pressure hose that’s what goes on
behind us a high-pressure hose goes all over the place big giant long thing I
just changed when I want it’s a giant pain in the butt but that’s normally
what goes spraying it’s not the rack cuz they cost a small fortune on a honda,
so if you never want to miss another one of my new car repair videos, remember
to ring that Bell

  2. I've got a 03 trailblazer 300 thousand miles same transmission and motor and a 05 Silverado 270 thousand no issues at all and after all those miles if the transmission or the motor goes bad I'll gladly pay for a new one

  3. GM got what was coming to them. Dealerships here in Canada have been closing all over. Good riddance. The only people still buying GM Ford and Chrysler are old white people that don't know any better. That's what they grew up with and ya can't change that mentality.

  4. Kilmer you are too much of a Toyota fan and GM hater to be of much use or actually honest on the question…..I drove GM's from the 60's and worked on all of them ….60's cars, All of them were total junk compared to cars of the 80's 90's and to today's cars….I replaced everything, ALL the parts of those cars …Nothing made it to 100K without being replaced ….The 10 year old car of today is far better than the Brand New car of the 60's and 70's …..The same holds true for the Japanese models …ALL of those older cars Rusted so badly by 5-10 years they were not worth fixing …..Your flip comments do a total injustice to GM and others …..The GM ignition key problem was a rouge Engineer covering up a problem he was responsible for and kept quiet about it …NOT GM policy …..

  5. Scotty, what do you think of Chevy?
    Scotty: "Money Pit"
    Scotty, what do you think of Ford?
    Scotty: "Money Pit"
    Scotty, what do you……
    Scotty: "Money Pit"

  6. I'm thinking about buying a 1991 gmc sonoma. It has the "iron duke" 4cyl with 98,000 kilometers. What are your thoughts about it?
