Hi Scotty we have a 2001 Toyota Sienna with 320,000 miles. We only paid 1,200 bucks for it and we have put less than a 1000 bucks into repairs. I did almost all the work myself. I am kind of a home mechanic. Now it runs like new almost. Was this a good deal and when should we think about getting something newer?

Hey Scotty, I just bought a 1977 Buick Electra limited with the Oldsmobile 6.6l V8 and th350 trans(43,XXX miles) for 1400$. I'm not familiar with the 403, are there any common issues that I should watch for?

What's your opinion on a 2011 Volvo C30 T5 with a manual transmission? I have one with 55,000 miles on it. My father bought the car new but he now lives in New York City and he does not have anywhere to park his car. I got the car for free. I've been thinking about selling it or trading it for a used Mazda Mx5 (2006-2013 model years) as I've heard those cars are eaiser to get parts for.

Hello how are you. I have a 2010 dodge charger sxt v6 that blowers hot air from the AC and the radiator fan is not coming on. I added freon in it but still no luck. I checked the fuses/ relays but everything was ok. Not sure what the problem can be. Its not overheating but im not going to drive to take the risk cause the fan is not coming on to cool it down. Do you think its the compressor?

Hello Scotty,

I’m interested in a 2006 Ford F-350 SRW XLT 4x4 6.0 w/ 112k miles. He’s asking $8000. He claims to have replaced: EGR cooler, oil cooler, heads, head gasket and injectors. However, the carfax report is vague and the dealer purged the work history from their records. These trucks have some issues, but once resolved—they can be great trucks. I just one don’t want to buy a dud—I can’t afford it! Please help! Thanks!

Hey Scotty, I recently purchased a 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with 140k miles automatic transmission. Was thinking about putting a cold Air-intake on it and drilled rotors. Is that something that you recommend doing? And was also thinking about lowering it with lowering springs. Is it bad/good for the car? Thanks

Good afternoon Scotty hope your havin an awesome day. I have a question for you in regards to Ethanol Free gasoline but is it really true that it makes any car run better compared to gas with ethanol? For instance let's say I went to Harris Teeter and I selected to put in ethanol free gas into my 2001 Honda Civic LX would it make it run better and have improved gas mileage or is it a scam?

Sir Scotty, Wish you could show us how to check if the car's odometer has been rolled back. I've been searching here for used cars planning on buying one in the near future. But the odometer in the cars I'm seeing are less than 100miles but the cars are already 10years old or more. Is that something to worry about? cause if it is then I won't have to go where the car is and waste my time for it. I'm from the Philippines and I always watch your videos since you taught me a lot about cars.

Hey Scotty put this in your video I want to advise everyone NOT to buy a Nissan. There quality is down to the S***s. In 2011 I bought myself a Nissan Maxima brand new and the right left door always had problems with the latch. No matter how hard I would shut it the light always came on inside as if the car wasn’t latched. Also the door was very hard to open from factory than all the other doors. And when you get the door open it would open all most to the fender mind you this car only had 3000 miles on it. I took it to the Nissan dealer they claim they put a new door latch system. At 9000 miles it failed again. I kept driving the car with a broken latch. Just 3 weeks ago the car now has 128000 miles I was going maybe 35 mph the right door just fell off the car. I paid 25000$ for this car also the transmission is going off. Scotty I need your help should I go junk it for a New Toyota Camry

Hey Scotty, We have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe LS 5.3 flex fuel 4wd automatic with 117k miles. When we bought it it had 98k miles. It was a retired police car used by the cheif (we know this because we talked to the chief from where it was used) and on the air filter box it said 0w-20 Aimsoil. Should I use that or stick with what I have been using 5w-30 high milage castrol. Also any know issues with the GM 5.3 from back then. Thanks!

Hi Scotty, today I’ve realized that my AC went down. It’s a Honda Pilot 2010 with 110000 miles on it .I plugged my OBD2 BlueDriver and the code B1239 came on. Could it be just the relay ? How do I tackle this issue. Thank you

Hi Scotty , I’ve heard the Honda’s reliability is going down due to an oil dilution problem. The latest article from Consumer Reports Honda’s reliability’s gone down overall because of this issue. When the engine oil level reads above the full mark on the dipstick- the manufacturer says that’s ok. What is your take on this issue ? Thanks

Hello. I have a 2007 Dodge Caliber sxt 2.0 engine with 200 thousand miles and it has a rough idle. I have recently replaced the spark plugs, coils, and the throttle body. Still having the same problem. I noticed oil in the 2nd cylinder while replacing the spark plugs. Could a blown head gasket be the source of my problem. Or what else should I be looking at.
