Hey Scotty, I got a 2013 Buick Verano, 124,000 miles mostly made on the highway, with the 2.4L ecotec 4 cylinder. Over the last year or two I've noticed that the car is using more oil than before and have to top it off a quart every 1,000 to 1,500 miles. Is this normal or do you think something really wrong could be going on?
Scotty, you're one of a kind. Buying 08 Lexus RX350 for my daughter. Just found out that some are made in Canada. Are they as good as japanese?
lol everybody is asking questions here.
Hey Scotty, what do you think about a low mileage 09 maserati quattroporte? I've only ever owned Lincoln town cars but I really like the styling on the quattroportes, do you think they're worth it?
I know you're not a huge fan of Nissan. However, I know you mentioned that you liked the Nissan Frontier. How about the Nissan Titan (esp. the Cummins)? Would you take the Nissan Titan or the Toyota Tundra?
Hey Scotty, I have a '09 Dodge Journey (4 cyl, fwd. 130,000 miles) with a clunking noise near the front left wheel. The noise is most apparent when turning left around 10-20 mph.
I also notice a popping noise occasionally from the middle of the vehicle around the transmission mount area is when hitting the gas from a stop. I am hoping the popping noise is just the transmission mount because I'm getting it replaced. (engine rocks back and forth, no misfire detected on scanner).
I was wondering if you had any idea what the clunking is. No play when shaking the wheels or pushing back and forth at the 9 and 3 and 12 and 6 position. Haven't checked the tie rod ends, upper/lower control arms. The noise also appears without turning left when hitting the gas on ice/thick snow and the traction control kicks in. Most loud when wheels spinning faster than the car. When the ABS kicks in on ice, there might be a bit of a clunk, but the ABS noise is a bit loud, so its difficult to notice.
Thanks in advance and Happy New Year!
I have a automatic 2010 chevy Malibu and it keeps cutting off when I come to a stop or sometimes when I'm driving. And it wont crank back up unless you take off the positive battery cable and then put it back on. I ran codes its showing no codes and the battery came back good and the alternator came back good to. What else could it be?
Hey Scotty. I own a 2015 Altima and the transmission is going out. Going to be looking for another vehicle soon. What do you recommend for a good used car? Around the same year I guess could be newer or older. Thanks for all you do.
Hey Scotty! My sister has a 2018 Nissan Sentra with 18k miles. I calculated yesterday after driving for a long time on the highway at 70-80 mph, and it only got 32 mpg. Today, it started to shake whenever we stopped. I know Nissan's CVTs are terrible.
hi scotty, i have a toyota corolla 2003 150000miles automatic, the check engine is on took it to autozone and scanned says code p0420 so i read about it so i guess is the oxygen sensor upstream, how can i make sure is that part? and not other parts or other maintenance require that trip that code?
Hey Scotty, our 1999 Dodge Dakota Sport 3.9L V6 doesn't want to idle, unless you keep your foot on the gas. If you let off, it stalls. What could be happening?
hey i have a 2007 nissan 350z and it won’t crank i tried everything new crankshaft sensor new starter new spark plugs but still won’t crank i observed the fuel pump but it look good to me at this point i don’t know what to do
Hey there Scotty, love the videos! I have a 2014 CR-V LX with just over 131k on it. Question is, should I trade it now while there is still value on it or ride it out to 200k? The propeller shaft is making a fair amount of noise as the weather gets colder but that's the only thing going on with it. Get oil changed every 5k and rotate tires the same. Car has been great but eventually want to upgrade to a V6 like the Pilot, Passport, Highlander, or 4Runner.
Hi Scotty, I'm planning on buying a car for limo business. I need advice which would be the best bet. SUV: Chevy Suburban, GMC Yucon XL or Ford Expedition. Sedan: Lincoln Continental, Cadillac xts or ct6? Thank you

2008 Camry. Can battery failure affect the alternator? I understand it's usually the reverse.
I used to own a 1998 Chevrolet Lumina and I loved that car. I recently was in the market for a new car and was leaning towards a 2018 Chevrolet Impala. In addition to the whole discontinuation of the Impala, GM vehicles and my own research it broke my heart to find out that my "American" muscle wasn't so American. I'm done with Chevy from now on.
I lost my right mind and leased '19 Equinox. On trip, engine quit on expressway and was towed to Chev dealership. We were 5 hours from home. Came home in rental. Now 3 days later am told that engine destroyed and have to put in new engine. 2,800 miles on car. Dealer not forthcoming with answers. Of course, Chev customer care is saying "sorry about your luck". Want me to drive back there and pick up car. They are not willing to do anything. I have more sordid details if you would like them. Too much for here. Can send repair order from dealer. Thank God I don't own this piece of junk. Thanks for listening.
