  2. I forgot all about this video, the last time I saw this I didn’t have a crack addiction, totally forgot that I was trying to fix a vacuum leak on my easybake oven

  3. My buddy tried this by smoking some weed. Now my fridge is empty and his car always shows its out of gas.

  4. You just saved me some money! Been pulling my hair out over my Ford Taurus misfiring and with a rough idle, I finally decided to try this trick. IT WORKED! Seems I have a leak on the intake area, so guess my weekend project will be changing out the seals for that. Also noticed a very small wisp of smoke coming from under the EGR valve, probably the diaphragm going out? So be it if I have to change that too, you just save me a lot of money Mr. Kilmer. I'm sending you a virtual cigar and a virtual beer as a treat! 😉

  5. Hey Scotty. So I just had my 97 Ford Mustang cobra , mechanic also had me replace several parts including injectors,mufflers,all 4 cats,fuel pump,air control valve,fuel pressure regulator, plug wires,radiator and the battery. The vehicle is at a high idle at 1000 rpm. I have the po174-p1506-po171 codes. No vacuum Leaks and o2 sensors are new. What’s your opinion? My heard is twisted. Thanks for your help. Love your videos.

  6. hooked up to my bong , loss of acceleration and radio was stuck on reggae station for an hour

  7. Ive spent $1500 over the last 2 months chasing a problem on my 94 c1500 5.7. It runs GREAT anytime except for at night when I get off work, on the freeway after doing 70mph for about 5 minutes, it starts to decelerate and when I press the gas to compensate, it doesnt respond until i floor it. If I stay under 60mph it wont mess up at all but 70+ and it starts decelerating. Ive replaced the fuel pump/filter/injectors. the EGR, the Throttle Pos Sensor, O2 sensor, Ignition Cont Module, MAP sensor, Battery and still no joy, Autozone and O'riely both tested the Alt and said its good. Could the Alt be bad anyway???? Im lost and out of cash, please help LOL

  8. Scotty guess what ? I tried it and my lipps started to sting , so I thought hey it's an old contaminated hose so i grabbed a new black rubber hose the next time and things got much worse first a tingle then redness and next FIRE !!!! OH guess I'm allergic to rubber/latex . THANK YOU

  9. Scotty always points out that he has been a mechanic since he was 12.
    Now you know why he is short.
    Smoking stunts your growth.

  10. 8 years later I finally see this video… I love it. I know how my dad and I will fix leaks in the future. Guilty.

  11. This guy is a nut!! Lol Probably was middle class and struck it youtube rich. Much respect. I have questions about bikes

  12. Sir I have a 2006 2.4 Camry w 108K miles. It has about 5 seconds of blue smoke on start up. Have R&R the PCV valve. Also tried the AT-205. going down the road and flooring it with no smoke. Runs good w all but the start up smoke I am thinking valve seals. Any words?

  13. I have a code p0304 and p0306 and p0300 my mecanic told me it’s a bad engine coil ….I change the two coil but the problem stay the same …

  14. I tried this. With my cloud vape, which has more smoke(vapour)😂👌
    And instantly found it with just one blow.

  15. Hi Scotty!, interesting method, i just tried this out on a 1996 Chevy Caprice and like to have your opinion about those old gm cars, are they any good? however i saw quite big amount of smoke escaping from the throttlebody shaft and i wonder if that`s normal?

  16. I learned 3essential thing from Scott that actually are true
    1-Buy a car with a naturally aspirated engine
    2-The GDI enginesare not good more if it have turbo vvt and other complicated thing that in the end ever fail
    3-The best cars is Toyota and some American cars like LINCOLN

  17. Instructions weren’t clear got penis stuck in vacuum lines and the lit cigar went into the fuel tank and im stuck

  18. Great video! I was thinking about doing it with a vape before the video. I'm glad to hear from a real mechanic that just a cigar works 😀

  19. Hey so i have the codes for lean in both banks and also when i press my breaks i hear a hissing sound and the breaks just feel soft and take longer to stop any advice? Thanks

  20. I did this and got hooked on cigars. So I tried to quit with the patch. I like them, but they're just freakin difficult to keep lit.

  21. I am a Cigar guy. I usually spend almost about $200.00 bucks on a whole box of them, when I should be using it to get new breaks for my vehicle.

  22. 1:08 the point of the video is to find the leak. You already found the leak before you blew the smoke in the tube. What hose do we start with if we don't k ow where the leak is coming from in the the place?

  23. Hey scary thanks for all your videos.. I blower some weed smoke into my ram and I got it hight and still misfiring 🤣
