State Car Inspections And Why They Are A Scam

State Car Inspections And Why They Are A Tax Scam

Scotty Kilmer, mechanic for the last 50 years, explains why state car inspections are basically just a money making tax scam for the states who have them. They do not prevent accidents, as scotty proves in this video, comparing states with inspections to those that don't have them.

Hey Scotty my dad has a 1997 dodge ram 2500 recently the whole front end of the truck went out but they engine still runs great, i’m thinking of building a car with the engine and transmission of the truck ( 5 speed stick and the 5.9L v8) what do you think is a good rolling shell for this build?

Here in Missouri, a mechanical safety inspection is not required until the car is over 5 model years old, and then every 2 years. The charge for it is $12, all of the money being retained by the shop. Here is what is required of the inspectoion /www.mshp.dps.missouri.gov/MSHPWeb/Publications/.../SHP-494.pdf That's a hell of a deal, if they actually follow the rules.

Hey Scotty, so I am having a really bad issue, I have a 98 Chevy 1500 and the hazards turn signals and brake light fuses went out today so I tried to replace them and as soon as I put them in they blew again. I took it to a shop and paid 320$ they spent 8 hours on it and concluded it was a wire somewhere, but when I took it apart my self all the wire look fine... I love my truck and it’s got low miles for its age, it would be awesome if you could help me figure it out By the way I tried to replace the relay with no luck and the multifunction switch
