The Truth About Scotty Kilmer’s Drinking Problem

The Truth About Scotty Kilmer’s Drinking Problem


rev up your engines, j-jordan says
Scotty do you like beer, I like a beer
every now and then I go more for the
German Pilsner styles myself, I was in
England recently and they had some
pretty good beers there I guess and they
always laugh about, oh the English spent
warm beer, what a load of hooey their
beer was just about as cold as it is
here, they usually just start in the
cellars, but I noticed a lot of the pubs
that I was in, they had refrigeration
units in them too, so that’s nonsense on
that you know, I like having a beer now
and then not too many of them, but I’m
actually more of a rum man I’m a rum
aficionado, the best rum I ever had in my life was when at the British Virgin Islands
these Rasta guys with those
big dreadlocks on, they had a place
they’ve been there for 200 something
years, oh my god it was $7.00 for bottle
of rum, even my wife drink it straight, it
was so great it was unbelievable rum
when they used to make them in small
batches, rum was really something I mean
it really has distinctive taste, the
modern corporate ones are garbage as far
as I’m concerned, it’s probably the same
way with beer, I imagine you went to
Germany to places that made their own
it’s probably fantastic, deplorable says
Scotty can you run regular unleaded in a Lexus, well I have for a really long
time,
most Toyota’s are normal compression
engines they’re made for regular gas,
some of the fancier ones they always run
on a high test gas, half of that is snob
appeal, because oh it’s a luxury car
it needs luxury gas, well here’s the thing
if you have a really high-tech modern
car, you can generally run it on any gas
you want, as an example I had a Ford
Mustang with that EcoBoost four-cylinder
engine and if you ran it on a high test
gas it had like 315 horsepower for
four cylinder engines, which is a lot but it
even said in the manual, you can run it on
regular gasoline, but then you only get
like 260 horsepower, so you lose horsepower, but in the modern cars the
computers can compensate for the octane
rating in your car and it doesn’t hurt
anything, on most Lexus you can run them
all day long on a regular you might lose
a little power but it isn’t going to hurt
anything
Benjamin’s sanguine says Scotty, my sister
in the market for used hybrid how does a
Ford Fusion compare to Toyota Prius in
terms of reliability, the Ford Fusion
Hybrid, the general running of that thing
is the same as a
Toyota Prius, they used the same electric
motor and the same battery pack that’s
made by Panasonic, so they’re relatively
similar vehicles, it’s a toss-up for what
you want, I’m not a fan of buying used
hybrids because they can get really
expensive as they age, but if you buy one
that has well under 100,000 miles you
probably won’t have any problems, but
don’t go buy one it’s got 150,000 miles
on it cuz you’re gonna put a lot of
money into it as it ages from my
experience, whether you buy the Ford or
the Toyota Prius, Cruise says Scotty I
got an 05 2500 HD Silverado truck, my
truck doesn’t hold itself up on a small
hill what could it be, if you’re talking
about you just sitting there and it
keeps going backwards, even if you got
your foot on the gas, odds are your
transmission is starting to slip, that’s
the most common thing, now if you’re
talking about you step on the emergency
brake and it won’t hold itself on a hill
those things had one of the crappiest
emergency brake systems ever made, they
went to this cheap Mickey Mouse setup
and you’re gonna need to repair it or
replace the whole thing, they do sell
every year duty units to replace them with
that was a kind of design flaw of
those things, I don’t know why they put
such a crappy emergency brake system on
a big truck like, that but if you’re
talking about that, have that worked on
or don’t Park on hills, funky
says do you think I need new window
seals to keep moisture out of my car and
my turn signals don’t work when a car
lights are on, my wiper motor went out, so
did the washer fluid reservoir, well one
you got a wiring problem and if you’re
getting water in, your window seals
aren’t gonna be damaging that stuff
because the window seals are on the side
and all the controls for the turn
signals and the wipers they’re all in a
dash, so the water coming from windows
seals that isn’t gonna do that, now if
you do have water coming in from your
windshield in the front, unfortunately
the only way you can fix that is, you got
to pull the windshield out and reseal it
you can’t put extra sealer on the
outside cuz that’s not how they worked,
when they build cars the frame is naked
where the windshield goes in, then they
put glue the whole way around and then
they fit the glass over it, and if it
does go bad and leak, you got to pull
the whole thing out to fix it or it’ll
still continue to leak, whatever is
leaking if it’s affected your wiring you
got to go under
there and sometimes the modules get
shorted out, sometimes the wiring
connectors when you unconnect them you’ll see
they’re green, that means they’re
corroded you can clean them all off, it would be
lucky if it was just something like that
little corrosion, John O’Donnell says pick me
Scotty picked me, I have a 2001 lexus
ls 430 with cracked bushings on the
control arms, can I replace the bushings
or do I need to replace the whole control arms thanks,
they’re basically made that you got to
replace the whole control arms, you could
attempt to take them apart go to a
machine shop and see if they could press
things in and out, but from my experience
do what I do, go aftermarket there are
plenty good companies out there that
make the aftermarket control arms with
the bushing and brand-new they cost like
1/4 of what Lexus gets for the factory
ones, just do that then it’s just the
bolt off bolt on job that you can
easily do yourself without any specialty
tools, that’s how I always do them
nowadays
I don’t even attempt to rebuild the
things, so if you never want to miss
another one of my new car repair videos,
remember to ring that Bell!
