Dear Friends and Supporters of On The Road With Scotty I’m about to move to an exciting new phase of expanding car help. I’m inviting a select few of supporters to join as volunteer hosts and contributors for this endeavor. I’m looking for friends passionate about their vehicles to ensure our community plan sets a great tone and culture. The tools are amazing, and for those chosen, provide an opportunity to be part of our global team. We believe it will be fulfilling - and fun! - and you’ll be among the first to see, use and test our new platform. I’m looking for hosts/contributors for the following rooms: Live Car Talks, Car Repair Videos, Cool Tools, Ask Scotty, and Cool Cars. If you want to apply, please send me a one-page summary of your passion and motivation to help in one or more of the above communities, and include your qualifications and perhaps a sample photo, video or written work, if you think it’s helpful. We’re looking for people who care deeply about their vehicles and want to help others. Looking forward to hearing from you! Scotty Kilmer

2006 Sonata manual tranny 132k miles
When I release the clutch, the first inch or so is 'normal' then it'll dump itself as if I let go of the pedal instantly, regardless of how slow I release the pedal

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.

Hi Scotty, my sister’s Jeep Wrangler 2012 60000. Miles on it has a squeaking noise from the rear brakes when lightly applied. Rotors and the pads are ok tho. I even plugged my obd2 scanner BlueDriver and again No trouble codes found. What causes that sound ? Thank you

I‘ve decided to buy a new car this winter, replacing a Nissan Rogue. I’ve read about issues with the 8 speed Toyota transmission. Should I avoid all cars with that transmission? After 3 transmission replacements in 90,000 miles for the rogue, I’m transmissioned out. Thanks.

Hey Scotty hope your havin a good day. Ik you dislike BMW but what are your reviews on the 2001 BMW M3 E46? My cousins uncle found one for sale and the owner has a price tag of $4,350. Had 130K miles on it, in perfect condition and the owner said hes taken good care of it and had no problems with it. It's also a manual. Should he go for it or nah?

Hey scotty. I've been watching your channel for a while like the information you provide. I have a 2003 Silverado 1500 4.3l with a 4l60e automatic transmission 130xxx miles. I change the fluids regularly and maintain the truck very well. It just developed a rattle on the passenger side, around where the bell housing is in the trans, I've climbed under the truck to check the heat shield they're all tight as well as for any bolts I dont see any. It only does it in low rpm with light acceleration, as well as sometimes when cruising with light acceleration. Any idea on what it could be. Any advice is better then none. Thanks,

Cory

Hi scotty. I saw a 2004 ford Taurus. It has 100,000 miles and the owner is selling it because his wife cannot drive it anymore. Selling it for 600 dollars. What do you think about it and what should I look for when test drive it. The car body looks in good shape.

Mr. Kilmer. I'm a huge fan of yours and your DIY videos helped me tons. I have a question for you. What do you feel about 96 Honda accords. I know someone selling it for a cheap price and I'm looking to buy. But I need professional advice on what to look for when purchasing. Can you give me a quick overview of a checklist to look fit before buying. It has 196k miles on it with automatic transmission and the person says they drive it daily. Thank you in advance for your expertise.

Hey Scotty, I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Montero sort with 181,000 miles, just had. Full tune up done, but the car is rough at idle and feels like it’s chugging once past 10-15 mph...not sure if it’s IAC, PCV, or EGR. Thanks!

Hey Scotty, i have my 1996 Ford F150 with the 4.9 inline 6. I know it has 3 O2 sensors, i found the 2 on the exhaust manifold right out of the engine, but i was told the third one should be after the catalytic convertor and when i looked for the sensor, it was before the convertor instead... I Just want to make sure it wasnt misplaced before i got the truck. Im Just trying to figure out where it belongs. The truck has 407k miles on it

Hi Scotty, thanks for all your helpful and honest videos. Very enjoyable! I have a 2011 Nissan Teana with CVT. It currently only has 60000 miles on it. Watching your videos and listening to other people and their troubles with Nissan CVTs have made me wary of the car. My dad has a 2009 Nissan Teana with CVT that has done 155000 miles and it's still going.

Should I keep the car and pray my CVT doesn't die on me, or should I sell it now and buy a newer Camry/Corolla to use for the next 10 years?

Hi Scotty . Love your videos, very helpful from Montreal, Canada! I have a 2011 GTI automatic with 125000 km. My wheel often , but not always , shakes at 50 mph and above, only when I accelerate. When I brake or let off the gas , it stops. I did a tire balance / rotation , alignment , and cv joints / axle shafts are fine. I even changed tires and the shake is still present. Thanks and continue with the videos!

Hey scotty, I have a 95 Nissan pickup with 210k with manual transmission and no troubles codes. I replaced knock sensor and o2 sensor and then the truck sat for a few months before I could put it back together and clean it all up. Now that it's back together it doesn't idle right I only replaced the cap and rotor not entire distributor. What would be some things to check?

Hi everyone. I need some help on my dad's van. My dad has a 2002 mercury villager van. We have been having it for about 13 years and never given us problems. I went to the doctors on Wednesday and it drive well but on the way back the van started acting up, the engine and transmission started to like jump on the freeway and after a while it started trying to turn off. It took a while until the van wouldn't start and it it did turn on and put it in drive it would turn off so we had to call AAA towing. Someone said that it would be the fuel pump. Any advise. The van has over 212 thousand miles.

1993 Chevrolet Caprice If you put a coil on it it will start and run and you can drive it. But turn it off and walk away then go back and try to start it and in a bit and it has no fire but if you put another coil on it it starts up again. It is killing the coils what would cause that

Please can you tell me what’s wrong with it.

Hey Scotty! What do you think about vinyl car tops? I’ve heard they can wear and be a pain as they age. I like the contrast with the paint color, but I can’t help thinking the concept is kind of silly. You’re pretending you have a convertible!

Love your videos Scotty

On the off-chance you are bored I wanted to make you an offer

My most recent background is opening a café at the tender age of 22 for £15k

I am now 25 and it took me 2 and a half years to improve its value to £135,000. My name is Altin Gashi, my café is called The village café, it is located in Tadworth (look it up if you have time, it all checks out. A customer of Lloyd’s business has offered me that amount of which I will accept. This is just a little background.

I would like to help you in your endeavours of whatever you’re working on. I think whatever you touch turns to gold and I feel I am also on that path so we could really create something great. I would like the opportunity to create for you. I have almost mastered html and CSS and will be familiar with JavaScript in the next few months. I hope you are willing to give me a chance. If need be, I am willing to give you more information about myself.

I ask of this because I would not like to give too much detail on such a public platform.

Wish you all, The best

Kind regards, Altin Gashi (London, England)

Scotty Love your videos. I have a 2006 impala 124,000 miles runs great. just had the oil changed recently. I bought the blue driver and when I run a scan it comes back with code P0011 Camshaft Position A - Timing Over-Advanced or System Performance (Bank 1) but it’s listed under Engine Control Module and not under trouble codes. I clear it and it comes back but not for a few days sometimes. No check engine light ever. Is this an actual problem or maybe the beginnings of one? The suggested fix seems to be replacing the camshaft solenoid magnet on the front of the engine. Thanks
