Scotty, I'm not sure if you think about doing this or not in the past. But have you ever tried to write to all these car companies about doing stupid things and have some of them change some off or all of the stupid things that they do? If so, do some of them listen to what you have to say about this topic? Such as putting fuel pumps in fuel tanks,etc..

Mr. Kilmer. I have been watching your videos for some time now and find you to have the years experience of a mechanic behind you to take your words as education. Myself I am a veteran auto body tech who restores classics for a living and I know my old carburetor cars very well. But we get into this fuel injection vehicles even as older as 90s I have some issues. I have been looking for a way to find your actual email info but as I said fuel injection stumps me as does technology with electronics so this computer stuff isn't a strong point either. I am in middle of an issue with my work vehicle which is 91 s10 4.3. I would like to ask a few questions if I could so I can confirm my hunches that I have a failing fuel pump. Thanks and love the channel.

Plastic clips! -fuel line clips, door panel clips, etc. Designed by Satan himself. They get brittle, some require a special tools. They are hard to find replacements for. Dealers charge more per ounce for than the going rate for gold.

My neighbor backed into my 99 Cadillac and pushed in the front right about two inches. After further investigation that car has a front shock built into the cross member that was a little rusted .I got under there with a sledge and tapped it a couple of times and it popped right back.A little paint smear was all I was left with.

Toyotas with plastic oil filter housing they break easily. The plastick oil filter housings stuck so bad sometimes unscrewing them can break them. The aftermarket metal oil filter housings had no problem busting them off at all.

Plastic water pump impellers aren't as stupid as they sound. They are a form of mechanical fuse. Virtually all these days are driven by the timing belt, and if your coolant freezes then the water pump pulley will strip the teeth off your timing belt risking severe engine damage. By having a plastic impeller, the timing belt won't be damaged as the water pump pulley can continue to run.

Isn't there still a law in the US that says bumpers had to withstand a 10mph collision? I remember it came in in 1974, that year all cars started sporting these ugly blocky bumpers and all the car magazines were complaining about how stupid the government was for passing this law. Before that, bumpers were just heavy gauge sheet metal, a 10mph collision would result in deformed bumpers and a large repair bill. I believe the law was watered down somewhat (probably during Reagan's or the first Bush's presidency) to 5mph or something of the sort. Sounds like they actually got rid of the law altogether if the bumpers are as bad as he says they are now.

The most stupid thing I've had to fix was the turn signal flasher on the 1988 Taurus wagon I had. The old can flasher that cost about a buck . Was clipped to the dash and all you did was disconnect the wire connector . Well this electronic flasher fails, I had to reach up to the top of the dash between the steering column and braces . ripped up arm just trying to reach it. I needed a ratchet to remove the screws try to disconnect the connector with one hand  . Then go to the store for a new one and told it would cost $75 .

I bet also most of this plastic mania is to reduce weight cuz the govmint imposes ridiculous MPG demands on the automakers . Yea, oh I'm $aving in fuel. Then comes the repair bill$ for all the plastic crap that breaks. Oops, guess I didn't save much.

Scotty I think you're just angry with automotive innovation. I've been wrenching on cars for 40 years and the new models are way better than the domestic crap my parents had in the 80's. We've driven Volvo and Nissan my entire adult life, but I spend my weekends fixing pieces of crap from Detroit. Sometimes newer, lighter designs are more efficient and last longer, get better fuel economy. If everyone listened to you we'd all have to drive '87 Tercels with stick shifts. The world has moved on.

We had a storm recently and a tree branch fell on my car barley leaving a scuff but the plastic handle broke off and flew 30 feet. I took in for repair, 1900 for repair because the inside mechanics broke. Couldn’t believe the cost. When I found out the cost, I got my insurance involved. They covered the cost. Really dumb...plastic. But it’s everywhere now. Can’t really buy a newer car now days that is designed for decades of use. Planned obsolescence.

Car manufacturers make very little money on the cars they make. The only real profit is in the maintenance. Now, what's your solution for that? Making the cars perfect and sell them for twice the price? Nobody is going to buy it.

I take it that you will still share some of your extensive automobile wisdom with your viewers? By the way, I think we are about the same age, and I to, although not a automotive mechanic do from time to time make some car repairs, I agree with you whole heartedly about the use of plastics in cars.

I a gree with you!! Car manufacturers produce plastic parts because its cheaper to make for them. For us consumers, there is no benefit. They break much earlier Notice,,car brands make money with cheap plastic parts they use Maybe the parts are cheaper to buy (which isn t always the case)but it costs us much money and time when the car is in the garage again.

I'm beginning to think Scotty is a sham. All his "experience" that he touts and he only has a single driveway "garage"? No heated and lighted indoor garage, no car lift system, no display of tools other than a junk carport. He claims he has done "hundreds" of this and that repairs which is actually impossible....and his hands and fingers look like a female opera singer... I like to watch his videos, but I think he is full of s---
