  2. Scotty, I know this is an old video, but I thought that lifetime ATF was a load of hooey. Shouldn’t you change it at 40k miles or thereabouts? It hard to do and expensive on these new transmissions, but I would want to get the longest life out of them.

  3. When he's talking about transmissions that use fully-synthetic fluid, @ 1:56, is he suggesting that you never need to change the transmission fluid on a transmission that uses fully-synthetic fluid? For such transmissions, i believe it is more so that a fluid-change is required LESS frequently, but not never.
    Unless he is talking specifically about the transmissions of the 2007 Toyota Camry's… in which case, they sound like quite the miracle car.

  4. Even if a car says not to change the tranny fluid you still should every 50K miles if you want it to last a long time!

  5. I see a video where two fools were slating scotty and calling him a liar etc. Scotty is a legend who speaks the truth and if he earns money promoting certain products then good on him, fact is scotty has saved me a few quid

  6. I agree with everything expect the tip where you said not to change automatic fluid on transmission that have "lifetime fluid", we all know that is a myth and it has caused newer transmission like CVTs to fail due to poor cooling problems.

  7. Love your videos! You've provided a lot of guidance that has helped greatly! And I love to see "Old Abe" at the beginning of your videos – Strike Brigade for 7 years!

  8. Sir after how much time I should change my engine oil currently using fully synthetic oil. Runs 2000 km. 15 months.

  9. 1. Change oil twice a year (owners manual)

    2. Change fluid transmission.

    3. Change coolant every 3 years.

    4. Check battery and clean. Battery protection spray.

  10. Hey I own a Chevy Colorado 2019, and it started to shake a little ever since I installed a bed tool box on the truck. Yes it’s heavy but I believe not that much to make my truck to shake… they also fixed the alignment on the wheel since it was a little crooked… any ideas what can that be??

  11. We've got a 99 cent only store that has FULL SYNTHETIC KENDAL 5w/30w for ONLY $2.49 @ QUART!!…I've stocked up for about a year being that you never know when the price will go up OR they stop stocking it

  12. I’m sitting here thinking you can’t escape from Scotty lol hw is popping up everywhere! I feel like imma get scared from exactly seeing him pop out of nowhere and punch him in the face from getting scared while he sits there thinking how did this happen?

  13. On the weekends Scotty goes to the airport dressed as a 4 Star General, with multiple medals on his chest and stands at random gates with a sign that says Chung lei

  14. I have a question about servicing the transmission. I have a used car and do not know my car's history for transmission changes. Just got it from the last month. Should I base the next transmission change at the mileage I bought it at?

  15. You were the first person that I ever watched on YouTube to learn about cars and you have helped me a lot and made me realize how much I love fixing cars I've enjoyable at times especially when you get one running the desert run thank you for all your help God bless you and your family today and always keep that great attitude

  16. Guys, I added green coolant by accident. I was told to go ahead and keep adding it since I already had. it's supposed to use the gold coolant. What do I do? Keep using green? Will a flush help or will it not really get all the green out? Help

  17. My ford’s ATF fluid was burgundy in about 3 years/ 11,000 miles (I don’t drive a lot) so I had that changed and it shifts great now.

  18. In one of your other videos you said conventional oil can last 5 to 7 thousand miles but when you are changing your oil at 3000 in this car. Why is that?

  19. Just wanted to say thank you for all the videos you have created. Wish you lived in Michigan I would take my car to you and no one else! Keep up the good work Scotty!

  20. On one video you say don't listen to the don't change your atf crap and on this video you're saying leave it alone.
    You're confusing us

  21. I have a 2012 Toyota highlander 3.5l v6 with 135 k Miles on it and I use mobil 1 extended performance and for every maintenance I do on the vehicle I use the most expensive fluids for everything the thing works like new I do my oil change every 3000 miles even when it is golden I bet my car will last longer than his 😂

  22. 2016 Cammy with 47k miles. Fully synthetic oil every 8-10k miles. I maintain that. I only work 8 miles away. Very light use of the car. The dealer is stressing me to get a ton of maintenance work. Thanks for the video. Based on this info. I guessing continue oil changes, check and spray battery, and flush coolant. Anything else you reccomend I do?

  23. In regards engine oil in a pre- computer car such as my 1991 Honda Accord, is it safe to use synthetic oil when it was designed for petroleum-based lubrication 🙀?

  24. Scotty makes the best car videos. Only thing I noticed is that in his newer videos he suggests you change the atf regardless of if it’s lifetime fluid or not

  25. U must forgot this video. Nothing lasts forever. U still need to change your ATF at some point. U taught me that scotty!

  26. Hahaa, Scotty said "Unless you live in a dust environment, leave the ATF alone" about the life time AFT in this 9 years old video. But all the new videos, Scotty recommend changing AFT very 50K miles regardless of what the manufacturer said.
