Don’t Fall For This Car Scam


rev up your engines
Baltazar soul says thoughts on the 94
toyota pick up with rebuilt manual
transmission and rebuilt engine oh
they’re great vehicles who rebuilt them
I see a lot of guys say oh that’s rebuilt
that
rebuilt straight out of a junkyard they
spray cleaner hose and then spray
painting was painted make them look shiny
and away they go
you want proof that these things
actually were rebuilt like here in Houston
if somebody said it was a rebuilt
transmission I’d say who did it enough
or somebody like my friends at McAfee
standard transmissions I’d say hey yeah
they do a great job no problem and same
thing with the engine who rebuilt it
I’ve seen people buy rebuilt engines and
you pull the oil pan off they’re full of
sludge the only thing they did was buy
it from a junkyard steam clean them and
spray-paint them and the insides weren’t
touched though you gotta have proof that
the stuff was actually done by somebody
you can talk to and see what kind of
reputation they have and that they
actually did the work cuz a lot of
people talk to talk but when it comes
down to actually doing the work it see
they’re not done right you’re not even done
at all
Don across says Honda passport vs.
Lexus rx350 I wouldn’t even compare
them Lexus is such a better built vehicle
you know of course on the other hand
let’s say you’re buying a used one
that’s got lower mileage on it you’re
gonna be able to pick up the passport a
heck of a lot cheaper then you’re gonna
be able to pick up to use Lexus they
hold their value I’m often ever
customers bringing them and I’ll say
look I’m not a fan of those things by
any stretch of the imagination the hondas
you can get used ones as low mileage so
much cheaper than others go and buy one
if a mechanic says it’s good there’s
nothing wrong with doing that but if you
compare them as actual vehicles you
can’t even compare the lexus is such a
better made vehicle and that Honda’s
anyways, andrew says Scotty what are
your thoughts on when dodge and Shelby made
cars
those were some weird cars like they had
that Shelby of the little 4 cylinder
Chrysler ugly little things it was like
their copy of Volkswagen Rabbit I mean
there were terrible cars they went fast
until they blew up that was a deal where
you know they’re trying to build on the
Shelby use the Shelby name to sell their
dodge and that was when Chysler was
in real trouble they were making junk
nobody wanted to buy I mean I don’t
think there’s such great cars they were
interesting for the speed and what they
can do but really most of them don’t
have any resale value these days cuz
there were such financial flops that
people don’t wanna and those 4-cylinder
ones that they made they were so ugly
nobody wants to track my retirement they
look terrible you know even with some of
the horrible designs out today those
things were even worse, part three plays
Scotty I got a 2013 Mazda 3 the brake
pedal feels soft and I bleed the system
after I bleed them they were firm for two
weeks got soft again if you have done no
work on the system and you got soft
breaks and you bleed them and they get
hard and it get soft again you got a
leak somewhere that’s sucking air in
normally bleeding brakes won’t fix
anything unless you’ve opened the system
got air in it or if there’s something
letting air get in the system there’s no
reason to bleed the brake system if
it’s never been worked on if there’s
nothing wrong because there’s nothing
wrong you’re somehow it’s sucking air in
the most common thing is a bad master
cylinder that sucks there cuz most other
things if they got a leak they’re gonna
be leaking out not only are they gonna
suck air but they’re gonna squirt air
out too and with the master cylinder
they can often leak internally and you
won’t see any leaks but then it’ll
building up I guess the master so maybe
the first thing I’d do in something like
that I just changed that they’re not all
that expensive not that hard to change
on a vehicle like that either Anthony
Barboza says 51 years as a mechanic what
haven’t you worked on well I haven’t
worked on any of those crazy little cars
they sell in Asia cuz they don’t import
those little micro cars because they
don’t imprt them over here so I’ve never
worked on it but I mean I worked on rolls-royce
of course Ferraris Lamborghinis I
hated working on those exotic cars
they’re a pain in the butt but most cars
as long as you can get parts for them in
the United States I’ll work on them to a
certain extent but I’ll also tell people
let’s say they got a mid-engine Porsche
and you got to pull the engine to do
work I won’t do it I’ll say hey I know
Porsche guys that work on these all the
time but you know just bend over and
start throwing money at them because
they’re gonna want a ton of it to work
on a mid-engine car like I’ve even
worked on old Renaults from the turn of
the century you turn to the 18s to the
1900 my grandfather had a customer had
one when I was a kid and it was a cool car
I’ll work on them as long as I can get
parts for them you know that
doesn’t bother me, lawrence says
would you buy a Camry made in the USA
actually I have but I’m so cheap I
buy used ones I bought for my wife a
Toyota Camry station wagon a blue one it
was beautiful and it was made in
Kentucky now I only paid a couple
thousand dollars for it it had 70,000
miles and she liked the car the AC blue
called I gave it to my first son he
learned to drive on it I gave it to my
second son he learned how to driving on
it then I got it back and I ended up
selling to a girl who joined the Peace
Corps and drove it to California and I
don’t know what happened to it after that
so that was decent build you know
they’re not quite as well made as the
Japanese ones but there’s still decent
made and they can last a long time
silver pixels says how reliable would you
say the Pontiac Firebird are, well you
know they were real reliable back in the
day one of my friends had one he bought
four thousand bucks with was a big deal
that had a four-barrel carburetor v8
engine and a four-speed standard
transmission most people had three
speeds out of four speeds and man did that
thing used up gas when he floored and
opened up all four barrels but it was
well made solid vehicles
but as time went on you
know they started making them cheaper
and cheaper GM parts and they got
cheaper and cheaper and cheaper but
originally there were really good muscle
cars you didn’t mind spending a lot of
money on gasoline, so if you never want
to miss another one of my new car repair
videos, remember to ring that Bell

  2. Hey Scotty , Love your videos man. You said in this one that you never need to change your brake fluid and I have to jump in here. Brake fluid is hydroscopic and slowly absorbs moisture from the atmosphere. Over time the system can get enough moisture to rust things from inside. A good brake bleed every few years is a good thing.

  3. Scotty I wanted thank you so much since I've been watching your YouTube channel you have taught me so much about cars you're like the father I never had and you saved me thousands thank you so much

  4. Hey Scotty, I got a 2003 Subaru WRX and I’ve just installed a boost controller on it, aside from the obvious problems, is there anything I should be looking out for?

  5. Scotty I used to move your videos but your just a crazy old man who thinks he knows it all then proves himself wrong next episode

  6. My parents got a Jaguar XF instead of a Lexus or a Acura. It’s already having frequent electric issues at 50k miles. They only use it as a weekend warrior type of car so I guess it’s not that bad

  7. Seems that anything to do with buying any type of vehicle or even parts they have figured out a way to scam people !
    Is the a reflection on the values of our Country . From New Vehicles , Warranties ,and Specially USED VEHICLES , Parts , Financing , extend warranties , even simple repairs . not to mention Customer service ! No wonder no one enjoys buying a vehicle , cause you know your about to lose either a arm or leg or worse BOTH ! They should make the Dealership post a ALERT SIGN out side ! YOUR ABOUT TO GET TAKEN < SO ENJOY THE RIDE !!!!

  8. hey scotty I have a 2007 Pontiac g6 3.5L v6 125000 miles on it. I bought it 6 yrs ago with 100,000 mile on it. I baby it most of the time and drive pretty easy all the time. I have put brakes on it and new battery and oil changes and air filter since I bought it. I just recently drove it to gulf shores Alabama from Tennesse about a 1000 miles round trip and got 30mpg. whats your thoughts on the 3.5L v6 and the Pontiac g6 its a 4 speed automatic. thanks for your time and love your channel.

  9. I loved the Dodge Laser I test drove a turbo one, I wanted to buy but it was too expensive in the 1980's for me so I bought a 4 cylinder mustang slow poke car

  10. I brought my car in for an alignment. The front tires were very unevenly worn. The car went onto the rack. 15 minutes later, it was done. I was curious why the mechanic did not have a speck of dirt or grease on him. I trusted him. I brought it to another less expensive shop where my friend worked. It went in and 60 minutes later it was done. The technician was covered in grease and dirt. He said both front wheels were way out of spec. You never know what you are getting at an auto shop. Buyer beware!

  11. When I change gears on my Mazda 626 the rpm pointer is falling allmost to 0. I have often a feeling that the motor is going to shot it self off. After changing the fuel filter it is a bit better now. Is this normal behavior for 2.0 l 115 hp

  12. hey Scotty my daughter just bought a 2009 Hyundai sonata I've never really heard you say much about hyundais are they decent cars that has 60,000 miles on it and she paid 7500 for it?

  13. Just another reason this guys a dipshit. Just noticed a 1986 Shelby GLHS sold for 27,500 at Sothebys auction, not bad considering new they were 10k. I see how youre a Lexus fan. Cant help but see the flagship LS400 was 40,000 and now sells for like 7k. These Shelbys will still be sought after long after you and your lexus's are gone…

  14. Hi Scotty- In urgent need of advice.. ‘99 Volvo S70 will not show any OBD monitors ready. Only one ready is comprehensive component. Seems maybe the data is cleared whenever the ignition shuts off..semi common problem from what
    I’ve read. Need emissions test soon…car idles and runs fine. PCM puts off engine temp, voltage data etc. Thanks to you and anyone else who might be able to help!

  15. Scotty, LOVE your vids. Thank you! In case you have not covered this topic I would like to. Beware when leaving your vehicle to be repaired. First and foremost, make sure they print the odometer reading on the work order, and let you know if a road test will be needed. For example, changing an alternator, shocks, water pump, et cetera do NOT require a road test. Remove all valuables and paperwork. Leave only the car key on the key fob. If possible get them to do a walk-around inspection before you leave so if the vehicle is damaged they cannot say you brought it in that way. Disable your sound system if possible. When you pick your vehicle up after the repair, check your odometer reading and car for body damage before leaving.

  16. MY MOMS TRANSMISSION WENT OUT IN HER 03 ECLIPSE GTS 4A AND SHE TOOK IT TO AAMCO AND BOUGHT A REMANUFACTURED TRANSMISSION, BUT IT TURNS OUT THEY SPRAY PAINTED ONE AND THREW IT IN!

  17. dodge Dakota 381000 only did clutch and brakes and you have to have 4×4 to get to my home more than 2/3 miles are dirt road and yes ball joints and u joints but a Honda no good in the dirt and toys front wheels fall off. 2 this year on my road. bad front ends! like can we say that they are over price with a bad front end

  18. ive had my 2000 pontiac trans am for over 7 years. bought it from the original owner with 40k miles. it now has i believe 72k mile. i daily drove it the 1st 2 years. all i can say is aside from performance upgrades i have done to it i have never had a problem with the car aside from a broken brake line. and mind you it is the 6 speed manual, original clutch. so even until the end they were pretty decent cars. the ls1 is a very solid trustworthy engine.

  19. I build my own engines. I dont do it for other people though. People ask my why I dont is because I dont know how you drive or service you car.

  20. I had an 02 Firebird and the only things I had to replace on it were the water pump and the tensioner assembly. Other than that the only issue was the gas needle (typical GM)

  21. It's unfortunate just how many basic facts are incorrect in this video. Scotty probably knows how to fix stuff, but his "facts' are mostly biased and flawed opinion, and if he's making a dime off of these videos, then I would put his channel in the "scam" column.

  22. As a European who is about to move to USA I wanted to ask are Volvo's worth getting in the USA? I had several older ones and they seemed to be bulletproof. (manual trans and diesel engines)

  23. My brother had one of those Dodge Shelby 4 cyl. car when it first came out. It was a fun car to drive. Decent power and hugged the corners well. That was the first time I've seen such a low profile tire. They looked like one inch thick rubber wrapped around the rims.

    Unfortunately, within a few years, someone side-swiped it and was considered totaled. Also, keeping with the Chrysler trend, the head gasket went out within that few years.

  24. I know another car scam out there, the owner saying the car is in pristine condition only to find out it was a crappy vehicle the entire time.

  25. I wish he'd do a LetGo App challenge and buy a super cheap LetGo car and show us how he finds and fixes everything wrong with it. I told a guy if he could drive the last one to me i'd buy it. It proved reliable and made it.

  26. Them big muscle cars were fun, mu brother had a Chevelle SS with the 454. (can't recall the model year). Gas was cheaper then!

  27. I need to find where you all are getting these toyotas at. All I can find are camrys that are 2005 to 2010 with 100k to 160k and all of them are in the 5 to 6k range. Yikes. Hell finding a MANUAL is already tough, I don't want all of the problems with the automatics. Also when i look for cars locally under 6k why are so many of them Jettas? Are they really that bad of cars?!

  28. Scotty's right about those old Shelby Chargers from the 80's. I had a friend who bought a brand new one and after about 15,000 miles the manual transmission went out – not the clutch – the transmission itself. I've never heard of a car before that or since that had a manual transmission fail.

  29. I run the car maintenance Youtube channel in Korea. I'm always learning such a great ideas on your channel. I hope we have a chance to be together. Thank you.

  30. Dude, my GF's Mom had a Red Pontiac Firebird like the one in the Video. Her's was a '92 w/ the 3.1 L V6. My GF would Max it out at 120 mph. on a regular basis unbeknowst to her Mom.🏁🏁🏁 Lol. Well built Car. They had it all the way up until 2012.

  31. For the person with Mazda 3 I recommend checking the clutch control system, because in some cases they have a common brake fluid tank.
