How To Winterize Your Vehicle -EricTheCarGuy

Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Discussion about this video: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/component/kunena/18-The-EricTheCarGuy-Video-Forum/40872-How-To-Winterize-Your-Vehicle?Itemid=0#40872 This video has been a long standing request and I'm glad I was able to fill it here. So if you're about to go into the winter season perhaps this video will help you with ideas on what you should do to your vehicle before the snow flies. I took a slightly different approach with this one in that I reached out to my viewers and asked them about what THEY do when they winterize their vehicles and incorporated many of their suggestions into this video. Even so, I'm sure there will be other good suggestions and I would urge you to either post them in the comments below or even better post them to the forum link above. Either way your comments and suggestions are welcome. Enjoy the video.

Why Mechanics Drive Junk Cars -ETCG1
This topic was suggested by forum member Brink5. It's a great question and I admit that I'm guilty of this myself. For some reason I'm happier driving a junky old car over a new whatever. My reasons are simple and I state them in the video. I've also noticed this trend in many other mechanics and technicians. I'd love to hear your input as well. Are we wrong in this, or do mechanics really drive junk? Thanks for watching. EricTheCarGuy Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/EricTheCarGuy Intro music by Eric Cook "ETCG1 Intro". Related Videos.

How To Mount and Balance A Tire -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ I often get asked how to mount and balance a tire with tools at home and the truth is that's WAYYY too hard. It's much better and easier to use the equipment that was designed for it. In this video I show exactly that, how to use the proper equipment to mount and balance a tire. It's not terribly exciting but I do show some things that are necessary when performing this work on an aluminum wheel. You MUST clean the bead area before you mount a new tire onto an aluminum wheel or else it will forever leak at the bead. I say this because all too often I see a tire that leaks air that's just been installed where the rim was not cleaned. Enough of my soap box. Also this video only covers the 'basic' tire mount and balance. When it comes to low profile or large tires it's a bit more complicated. As far as tires go these are pretty easy and straightforward. I'd like to thank my friend Scott Armstrong for his assistance and for letting us film in his garage. If you're in the Cincinnati area and looking for auto repair work I suggest you contact him as he's a heck of a mechanic.
