If You Don’t Own This Car You’re Stupid

rev up your engines, John says Scotty love
your vids I bought a 96 24 runner 3.4 v6 128 thousand miles had all the invoices
for oil changes belt oil changes every three what can I do make it last
as long as possible well keep doing that 128 thousand miles is low mileage for
one of those it’s a 96 and that’s a classic vehicle just keep taking care of
it like that it’s got the v6 engine with a timing belt in it cuz it’s an old
one so I would definitely change the timing belt now I’m not just because of
mileage but because of age that’s rubber time your belt it’ll crack I changed the
water pump too and the timing belt tensioner you never know I had a customer
with one of those that had four hundred and fifty thousand miles on it
thinking lasts a long time just baby it and take care of it those are solid
built trucks especially back in 96 the frames are solid everything about them
were solid built trucks Kevin giver says I bought a 96 saturn
sl1 with 23,000 miles I wonder if they’re dependable cars I’m usually
Honda Toyota fan that thinks oldest Hills I’m assuming did not pay much
money for it I’ve had people buy those cars for $500
$1,000 in time for four or five years and I’d have to spend too much money
fixing if that really has 23,000 miles on it it can still be quite dependable I
got customers with those things then a hundred and fifty thousand miles they’re
still running okay if you take care of them if that really is the real mileage
you didn’t pay much you might have actually gotten a really good deal sure
they don’t make them anymore but truth be told the 96 is were better made than
the older ones when they finally went bankrupt because GM even though they
called it Saturn GM owned it kept forced them to make them junkier and junkier
they’re kind of jealous that the Saturn’s were selling good and their GM
cars weren’t so ended up destroying all company and then they just shut the
whole thing down but those old ones were actually better
made than the ones near the end when they stopped making them f batches
how is the Lexus es350 2019 well they’re beautiful cars and it costs an awful lot
of money the only problem that I find is Toyota has had problems higher speed
transmissions the 8-speed transmissions on above they’ve had some problems and
you’re working on them I don’t know if they perfected them and you’re not gonna
know since it’s a 2019 car is that good now cuz it’s 2019 till
it’s been out for a few years it’s the big reason I buy used cars but my wife’s Lexus
yes 300 and it was 12 years old only had 60,000 miles but in those 12 years
that had history had no problems at all and it only at 60,000 miles so I bought it
might be the last car I ever buy her I would never buy a new car any start
especially since they have had problems with the transmissions and the other
ones and not like they fell apart like a Chrysler Fiat toyota claims that got
software fixes why wait until few years down the line myself to see if they
really do work fine and I don’t have any residual problems because a lot of times
to do the software over and then a year or two later that didn’t work right and
they get even worse as the transmission swear so I’d wait on that one
Y 2 K says I got an 09 Hyundai Sonata is leaking coolant right
where the water inlet meets the water housing in the dash
could I use a sealer on it, you could try but here’s the problem
that inside part where it goes in it’s all cheap plastic crap it’s a 2009 so
it’s an 11 year old vehicle and I knows young guys that cheap plastic crap when
it cracks generally means you have to replace it and on that situation you
gotta take the freaking dash of the car part because the hose fits in there yes
but the part it fits into was inside the dash and you got to take all that apart
to change it as a royal pain in the body that’s why I hate to use a plastic crap
like that it’s just cheaper to make that’s all it’s not better it’s worse
when they used to make all those valves and stuff out of metal
hey they’d last for an awful long time but you got hot coolant and all kinds of
chemicals they’re over time plastics gonna do what crack and leak and when
it does you gotta replace it and it’s bad enough when it’s on the outside
sitting in the engine bay where you gotta pay 300 bucks or some piece of
plastic crap with valves it but when it’s hiding inside the dash it’s ten times
worse, Jay Braun says Scotty 2007 honda accord 57,000 miles low mileage
with slow steering rack leak the fluid is
relatively dirty should I change it to prevent a further leak you gotta use honda
fluid cuz they’re very particular I would change all the fluid and I would
add 3 ounces of at 205 reseal it can help it from leaking and a lot of
times it will now if it gets to really leak yeah you gotta have to replace the
rack and it’s gigantic pain in the rear end there’s no arguing that but Honda’s
just have a history of wheat leaking racks on those things and the dirt
doesn’t make sure you get it nice and clean and try the at205 reseal and pray it
fixes and I’ve seen them fix it sometimes because it’s awful low mileage
Volkswagen is now supporting the old beetles by making an electric conversion
motor assembly that you can put on a classic Beetle when they made them so
they actually lasted a long time they’re not talking about the price because
that’s being done by another company in Stuttgart Germany
they are already converting the classic Volkswagens and they’re having a
reasonable amount of horsepower on these things that electric motor they having
like 91 horsepower and they have a pretty good range because they were
small light cars it’s what electric cars are basically
designed for smaller vehicles and there’s tons of classic Volkswagens
still going on you could convert it like I said they’re not given the price tag
yet and since they’re made in Stuttgart I’m sure they’re gonna be really
expensive and it’s gonna be you know a rich man’s toy for the time being but
when they start coming out with these kits in mass and they make more I’m sure
other people the Chinese probably start copying it and you know my Chinese made
conversion kit for a lot less money than what the Germans are making it for but
really not a bad idea cuz those old beetles hey there’s lots of them still
rolling along small vehicle why not convert a small vehicle to electric
instead of making these big things that are never gonna go all that far cuz
they’re too big and they gotta pull the heavy battery,
so if you never want to miss another one of my new car repair videos, remember to
ring that Bell
