hey scotty good day to ya, my 2007 Acura Type S oil gauge started going down after my daily commute on a new route that was under construction, after a week or the light came on but i knew i recently had an oil change, it would seemed the right side of the road roughed up underneath the timing belt around the oil pump area ive seen and heard that is a very common accurance for the cars model someone unproffessional blatantly suggested i get a new engine because of the rattling it makes now whenever the engine which it never did until the day that it shut off on me on the highway, i'm afraid to move it out of my parking space at home to not worsten the situation nor have the tool at hand to lift it to exactly where the leak is coming from, the engine hardly has any miles on it & this has be the 1st problem ive had to far with the car i'm contemplating using a seal or replace the O ring or any other seal, i just can't afford a whole new engine or willing to go to that extent, before i contact the acura dealership, tow it there & let them handle it ,what are thoughts or actions u would take in such a situation, thank you .
Hey Scotty I have a 2006 Acura RSX Type S that revs up and down by itself when idling, also when I connect my scan tool I get codes P0300-P0304 what can I do to fix the multiple misfires in the cylinders and what can I do about the idle that revs up and down by itself? By the way I love your watching your videos

Hi Scotty, thanks for a great channel with lots of practical advice. I'd like to get your thoughts on the time required to warm up cars from a cold start. I know some advise ~30 secs of warm up time before setting off slowly. However, it's between -15C to -30C (5F to -22F) in Northern Canada right now and I'd like to know if this is sufficient or would a longer warm up time be recommended. Car is a '08 Rav 4 V6 with ~225K kms (140K miles). It does comes with a engine block heater but I don't always have the means to plug it in.
Hey Scotty, I love your videos, and have been using them for years to help maintain my 07 Yukon XL (170k miles) but I have a question to run by you. I just bought my dad's 2013 Chrysler 300 with the 3.6 pentastar,(got it on the cheap). I know it's been well maintained, and has had regular fluid changes. My question is, I know you say the automatic transmission is a weak point in the vehicle, what do you think about adding a auxiliary transmission oil cooler? Do you think it will help extend the life of the AT, or is it not worth the $75 or so it costs to pick one up? Thanks for the years of invaluable assistance!
