Hi Scotty, I live in Houston, have a 2003 PT Cruiser (I know, I know...) with 118,000 miles on it, automatic, non turbo, base, and have problems with random stalling while driving, random very rough idle at cold start up and, dashboard icons going on while the chime goes off and the overhead light goes on when the car is bumped, turns, etc. I cannot put gas in it without pulling the gas nozzle out part way to allow vapors to escape or the gas pump turns off right away. I also sometimes have a rough start after filling the tank 3/4 to completely full. The evap system sounds like but the mechanics found my problem incredulous.

My biggest concern is the rough idle and stalling. I have had several mechanics try to figure it out but with no codes they couldn’t find the answer.

Is it possible to make an appointment with you to scan it and try and get an idea? I have had the fuel pressure checked and it is 56 but not tested under a load or with fuel trim data. Or, can you recommend someone who might be able to trouble shoot the issues?

Thanks,

Susan

Hi Scotty,

Just bought a 2001 Toyota Camry LE and it seems to be leaking coolant. I checked out your older videos on using the Dye kit from Autozone, would you recommend that I use the same method when investigating the source of the leak?

Scotty, a friend of mine wants to purchase the new 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander GT with the v6 engine and 6 speed transmission. What are your thoughts on this vehicle? I told him to avoid the I4 with CVT since those are made from Jatco.

Hi Scotty, I recently bought a 2013 Lexus LX570 with 58K miles, instead of a 2013 Lincoln Navigator. The Lincoln was a lot cheaper, but I wanted something reliable, big, and fast. What are your thoughts on these vehicles? Did I make a wise purchase?

Hey Scotty, My 07 chevy malibu has (150k miles, automatic trans) is randomly jerking to either side. For example, i tried to test drive my car, that has been in my parking lot for a year, but every time i turn the steering wheel right or left the wheel immediately jerks back to its original position. Any ideas?

2 years ago I received a 2008 HHR LS 2.2 auto as a gift. It has 58k miles and runs fine now but I know eventually that won't be the case. Should I sell it, hope I can get $5-6k, and find a Corolla or Camry? I need something for the long haul. My 03 Corolla went 350k miles before calling it quits and I know that's not happening with this lol.

Hello Scotty, I am new to your channel and I am hooked!

I am in the market for a new car... My budget would be around $4k I am in the process of selling my 09 Mini Cooper..... I am looking at Corrollas, Civics & Camrys BUT Is there a reliable convertible car that you would recommend that is around 4k? I would prefer automatic transmissions but I could also just learn how to drive manual THANKS!!

Hi Scotty, my dad is about to gift me his 2016 Honda Accord Sport w/ 6-speed manual and 75k mi on the odometer. He and his mechanic say valve coking in the direct injection is no big deal and won’t even check it. Say they’d have to take apart the engine to check. Are they right, and how should I handle the DI maintenance going forward? (Don’t look a gift car in the mouth?)

Hi Scotty, I watch a lot of your videos. Always talking about wanting to drive around Houston to look for you. Recently I bought a Nissan Cube around Montrose area, drove it home parked it for 2 weeks to replace the fender. Once i started to drive it, the car seems to act funny, after a couple of miles, it finally not running. I was told the transmission went out. I was scared to bring it to some unknown mechanic. (And the dealership charging too high). Hoping you could give me some advice, thanking you in advance.

Hey Scotty, I'm looking to purchase a 03 Lexus es300 for roughly 3.2k The car is in great shape and all @ only 112k miles. My only issue is the owner said he got the car @ 80k miles and doesn't think it has its timing belt replaced. He of course claims it hasn't been an issue, should i be worried and how will i know if It needs to be replaced?

Hey Scotty, I know you've addressed this before saying Scions are just Toyota's but I'm wondering if they're a "safe" purchase? I'm looking for a new cheap car like a Honda Civic but I've noticed Scions are cheap. Are they reliable or did I miss the memo on them being a waste of money?

Hey Scotty I have a 2013 Escape 2.0 AWD. I had a bad cylinder on 2. I had a cylinder 2 misfire. I had an engine with 50k installed. I still have a misfire on cylinder 2, turbo sensor a code, and the transmission is now shifting hard. Could this be a computer problem? Thanks.

Hey Scotty 2009 Scion tC I was doing motor mounts and I had the coolant reservoir turned on it’s side so a little leaked out and it got near the low so I added a little autozone coolant it was yellow and it said it was universal and can be mixed with any others. There’s pink in mine now. Is what I did safe or should I flush it and refill?

Hey Scotty, I currently have a 10 ford escape & the ABS/traction control is coming on & killing the power like I'm driving on snow/ice when it's completely dry & when I hit the breaks it pulses the breaks as if I don't have traction, is this a bad sensor? I tried to put a cheap amazon obd2 scanner, however, it shows 0 error codes. Thank you
