Red Sonja trying on a new pair of alternator belts. Turned out to be a bit loose, which wasn't the fault of the mechanic or car, but more the fault of the belts not being matched (one was bigger than the other, stupid belts).
Volvo 245 Oil Change Adventure!
A regular maintenance adventure between an old Volvo and it's owners. A
couple of points to note.
1. I refer to a socket wrench with a 1" socket on it as "quarter inch
drive". I'm clearly asleep, as the wrench is in fact a half inch drive.
2. I'm not wearing any gloves in this video. Generally accepted science
says that used motor oil contains carcinogens, and to protect your skin you

example but don't blame me for your cancer.
3. The sexy camera assistant is in fact a blood relative of the last
hereditary chief of her nation. She is essentially native royalty. Be
Thanks for watching! I hope this educates and entertains.

1979 Volvo 245 - Bad Alternator Test
Red Sonja has the leads hooked up to her to verifiy a charging problem
exists. As the internet can tell you elsewhere, when the electrical system
is working properly, most cars will put out 13.3-13.7V while running, which
is a good charging voltage. The poor Volvo was only coughing out 12.2, and
less under load. This was after changing the battery leads, charging the
battery, and replacing the alternator belts.
