hi. So i have my fathers old 1998 toyota siena le. he took horrible care of it. there is leaks, and i intend on replacing as many gaskets and seals as i can.

It has almost 200k miles, so i should replace spark plugs. should i also buy wires since its that old? i also know i will be getting the rubber boots with the spark plugs and dielectric grease. but should i also buy wires?

i also had my wheel hub on my front left tire done (idk why they didnt do both...), should I do it for all my rear and front? i was thinking moog.

since my brakes are spongy and an inspection 1.5 years ago revealed my brake pads have like less than a quarter inch left, i also figure i replace rotors. is powerstop or centric any good? how about brake performance?

also should i get shock absorbers and strut and strut mount? i was thinking kyb. i watched your video on pre-assembled ones are bad. Coils as well?

Hello Scotty, I'm looking to buy a car and have narrowed it down to either the Renault fluence diesel (2014-2015) or a civic sedan 2010. I know I'll get way better gas mileage on the Renault but how's the reliability compared to the civic? I'm willing to buy a manual one if the automatic isn't as good. thanks in advance.

Hello Scotty My Chrysler Pacifica 2004 All electrical systems now working and I cannot start the car.(it’s completely off) I already charged battery (unfortunately cannot test if it’s really charged) because I have no testing tools. Should I just call mechanic on road so he come over or take battery to auto store? Or you can suggest other approach?

Hey Scotty, I recently came across your Youtube channel when my wife and I were in the market for a new car. After watching some of your videos we decided on a Toyota Corolla; we got a 2019 model that was used with less than 500 miles on it.
It was a bit more than we were willing to spend but was basically brand new.
Since this is such a large investment for my wife and I who both recently graduated college. I wanted to know what things we can do to keep it running well for a long time as well as keep the resell value up if we ever wanted to sell it. I have been watching a lot of your videos which has helped but wanted to know if there was anything more specific we should be doing for car maintenance. Thanks for your help.

Hello Scotty, I have Chrysler Pacifica 2004 with 105k miles on it. Lately I start noticing how car is vibrating I can feel it in the steering wheel and inside of car. Couple years ago when I went to my mechanic to perform some work we find out that pillows (sorry if im incorrect in terminology) on which engine is sitting were no-good. So her replaced it. Couple weeks ago when I brought it in for oil change I mentioned that its still happens. He didn't find an issue but said if it would get worse he will investigate further.

So my question is; What do you think, what could it be?

What do you think about a 2009 Murano SL with 116,600 miles? No problems except there is a light rumble in the front right wheel mostly every time the brake pedal is pressed. What could it be ? Took it Mavis Tire Discounts and they couldn’t figure it out.

I have a 2010 ford fusion and it was running perfectly but the other day all my idiot lights came on and the speedometer, rpm, and temperature control gauge all lost power. My usually incredible mechanic didn't really do anything. Any causes/solutions? Thanks in advance!

Hello Scotty, The wife has a 2005 toyota camry with the 3.3 v6. After watching one of your videos I bought a fuel gauge tester to test the fuel pump but for the life of me I cannot find the test valve. I have looked all over the fuel rail but don't see anything Do you know if this engine has one and if so where might it be. Thanks for all your help and guidance.
