Hey Scotty! Im looking into getting a 6th gen Celica, and I love everything about them except for the front headlights. I much prefer the look of the JDM version Toyota Curren front end. Would it be an easy conversion to buy a JDM front end much like an integra if you could find a good deal on the parts?
Hi Scotty. I have a 2008 Nissan Altima that is using oil like crazy. The service engine light is not on. When it runs, it doesn't shake, make noise or blow black smoke. What could it be?
Hey scotty, ive got a 2008 Mazda 3, i changed my drivers side wheel bearing and hub just yesterday. When iwent to test drive it I noticed a considerable amount of squealing coming from the wheel area when i get to the last few feet of a slow stop. I'm concerned as it did not do this with the old hub/bearing. Could I have over pressed the hub into the bearing? What could i do to fix this issue?
Hi Scotty. I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty 3.7L with 120,000 miles and the original Chrysler 42RLE transmission. I noticed a few rough shifts, nothing serious, but they are there, and sometimes I think it might slip (rarely) but I'm not sure how to tell. I don't know if the fluid and filter have ever been changed. Should I drain and fill the fluid, change the filter and fluid, or leave it alone?
Scotty I have a 2008 impala, it idles rough especially when I let it sit in reverse, also hesitates when going uphill between 35-45 mph, I tried cleaning vvt solenoid, checked fuses and I cannot figure out what the problem is, it started doing this after I cleaned the battery terminals and wires to get the corrosion off, I put new terminals on and got all the corrosion off, and after making sure everything was put together correctly it started acting up the next day, please help, tried taking it to mechanic and no one can figure it out.
Hi Scotty. My car is due a brake fluid change and has not been changed in the past two years. If I buy a tester and it shows the quality is still good is there any need to change the fluid? Is changing the fluid purely incase water has been absorbed or is there some other reason to regularly change it?
What do you think of nissan’s automatic transmission? I know they have a crappy cvt.. thanks and more power!

Celica Hey Scotty, the whole world knows you're a die hard Toyota fan, and rightfully so, but if you had to pick between say a new Hyundai Elantra or a Nissan Altima, both with standard transmissions, which one would you buy for long term ownership?

Hello Scotty. What would be a good deal to buy a 2008 Lexus GS 350 Sedan? The car has 143K miles on it and the current owner has been using it for 5 years (he is the 4th). The asking price is 8k. Also, is it worth buying such old car? This will be my first car purchase.
Hey Scotty! Will there be any harm in using fuel system cleaner in a modern naturally aspirated car?
Hey Scotty, I have a 2010 Lexus ES 350 and on the fuel cap it says to use "Premium Unleaded Fuel Only". Some people online are saying that it's okay to use regular fuel. Is it worth the extra cents to put premium fuel in my car? Will anything break if I don't go by the recommended fuel type?

Hey there, Scotty! 2002 Honda Civic Si, hatchback. Just noticed a bit of water down in my spare tire well. Don't see obvious holes. Nothing else is wet inside the car/cargo area....just in the well. Thoughts?

Hey Scotty i'm 16 years of age and i'm currently restoring a Toyota Celica GT, I noticed when i saw older pictures of the car that the rear wheels played hide and seek under wheel arches and was considering wheel spacers but i'm not sure if they're good or bad for the car. So whats your opinion on them?
Scotty and everyone is the 2019 Honda civic hatchback a good first car buying new

What's your opinion on a 2006 Buick Lacrosse CX with 130k miles? I have already had the transmission overhauled by a local transmission shop with excellent reviews. I need to know what I need to keep an eye on as it gets older, as I intend on keeping it long term as a road trip car.
Scotty, did you hear about Honda extending the warranty on some turbocharged Civics just like the CR-Vs due to gas getting into the oil? Supposedly it's due to bad software. Thoughts on that?
