My story and the Beginning of How to Automotive


well nobody I’m Brian Oso from how to automotive and today I wanted to share you my story so I’ve always wanted to be an automotive technician since high school that’s all I’ve known that’s all I’ve done I started out on dirt bikes so we were racing dirt bikes as kids and we couldn’t afford to take our bikes to a mechanic to have him fix them and so my friends and I were to fix our own bikes and I became the guy that was had skill at fixing stuff so all my friends were bring their dirt bike stuff to me and I would just keep them running with basically spare parts or I’ve worked very little you know means and I was good at it so then that progressed into I started working at a used-car dealership and out of high school and now and at the used car dealership I learned a lot of skills you know a lot about cars I mean I learned a little paint-and-body I learned a little upholstery I learned a little bit about emissions and getting cars to pass smog I’m living here in California we have state emissions tests and getting these used cars to pass smog you know as can be tough so we got so I would gained a lot of skills like that and then and then basically the car dealership I was working at went out of business and and I got an opportunity to mop a shop I was just mopping the shop and one day the owner of the shop says hey hey Brian super-busy got this transmission in his van over here it needs to be pulled out can you do it for me I just said yeah I just jumped in there both feet pulled the transmission out a week later he goes hey Brian transmissions back from the rebuilder can you put that back in I was like deer in the head like I had no clue of what to do but I managed to muscle that transmission back in there and managed to have a pretty good system of keeping all my track of all my bolts and everything got a few tips from the owner very little help from them by the way and put the tranny back in transmission ran perfect I was like and then that then I was off and running he’s alright you did great on that here’s a brake job here’s a radiator here’s those and then you just can’t throw and work at me kept throwing work at me and I kept getting better and better hey you’re doing good you should start buying your own tools I started buying my own tools next thing you know I’m a full-blown the technician I took the Bureau of automotive repair clean air course at a local trade school and you know I learned you know engine performance and engine electrical and and it just really launched me into my career and then then I’ve taken a hundred of these little training courses or training classes that are offered through parts stores and stuff like that and really just doe both feet in and it just just soaked up as much knowledge as I possibly could you know and uh it’s been great you know this career has been a good career to me it did almost cost me of my life at one time I did catch stage 4 throat cancer and it came from all the chemicals and stuff that I come in contact here at the work so one of the things I do preach about is taking care of yourself you know wearing your protective gloves your mask and eye protection all that stuff you know you look here you mention that from time to time and that’s only because I went through stage 4 throat cancer and it’s not fun trust me so I do want the best for you guys I came out of that and then a few years back I decided to make a youtube video and and just did a video I didn’t think much of it I got a lot of positive feedback from the video so they made a second video and a third video to fourth video now I’m up to nearly eight hundred videos and let me tell you starting the YouTube channel was one of the best things I ever did because it super motivated me to to take training courses it’s super motivated me to give back to you guys even more just kind of amped up of Who I am just I like to give to everybody and it just amped everything up so now I get to give is even more ten times as much and I don’t ask for anything in return and it’s been it’s been phenomenal and I like to thank you guys for all the support you have you’ve given me you know and uh so that’s in a nutshell Who I am I am the guy that gives everything to everybody else first and gives myself I take care of myself laughs that means everything in my life that means everything from my tools to my car to the clothes I wear I always let everybody else get the cream of the crop first and then I would whatever’s left over I would you know spend on myself or do for myself so that’s who I am I’m the person that’s gonna give to you first before I give to myself and I want to thank you so much for watching the channel and supporting how to automotive it really means a lot and because
