Hey Scotty I’m trying to put myself through college right now and money is tight. I have a 2005 Toyota Tundra with the 4.7 with VVT and only 120k miles. I love that truck but I’m past due on my timing belt and it’s about $1000 to replace. What should I do and how long do you think I could get away with driving it until it blows up? And because it’s an interference will I need a whole new engine if it does snap? Thank you so much

Hi Scotty thank you very much for your videos you have truly enlightened me. A few years ago I got to work on BMW’s. i’ve owned a couple I have a 2007 X3 And I was considering getting an electric vehicle but after viewing your videos I’ve decided trade in my bmw which by the way I’m only getting $3600 and purchase my first Toyota 2012 Scion TC It has 77,000 miles and comes from California has a really good car fax but shows a recall is there anything else I should be looking for? I work on my own cars I just got tired of working on the Beamers. There are exactly as you say money pit. Thank you I will keep watching your great videos.

Hey Scotty, I really enjoy your videos. I have a 2009 3.6L Equinox Sport. I bought a serpentine belt to replace the original belt. I can’t seem to find a tutorial video or anything else to help me with procedure. Can you help me out? Looks like it might be a major undertaking. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Scotty,

I have an 07 Nissan Altima Hybrid. I cleaned the throttle body and now I'm having positioning issues with the electronic throttle body. I tried the standard re learn procedure, but it does not seem to work. I do not get the MIL to flash the accept at the end of the procedure. Do I need some other tool because it's a Hybrid trim?

Scotty, I have a 2008 Chevrolet Impala LT - V6 - 3.5L

at start up the rpm run high for a couple minutes if I switch gears and accelerate before the rpms go down the car will hesitate and act as if it’s going to die, also the lights will dim and get brighter repeatedly. I think this might be part of the same problem... I’m dumfounded batt, alternator,and stared all check out. No engine light, car has a pedal position sensor on it so not sure how I would go about testing the throttle position sensor, I also have cleaned the mass air flow sensor, changed air filter and cleaned throttle body... any ideas on what’s going on with this vehicle?

Hey Scotty, I just purchased a brand new Mazda 3 touring and sometimes when I start the car the breaks harden and I am unable to shift into drive. To fix it I have to spam the power button to turn the car off and hope it doesn't happen again. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

Hey ! Scotty I have a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer and the service engine light won't go off it has a code reading P0455 so I changed the fuel cap, purge valve and vent valve. How do I get rid of this code for good ?
