  • Here's the second installment of Fixing it Forward with Barbara's 1998 Chrysler Town & Country minivan. In this episode we take a look at the transmission that doesn't have reverse. I go through my prices of diagnosing the transmission to see what the issue is. Let's just say, it's not looking good.

  • This video covers the radiator replacement in a 1998 Acura 3.2TL. The information also applies to the 91-95 Acura Legend, the 96-2004 Acura RL, and the 96-98 3.2TL.

  • The Acura Integra & Honda Civic Rear Suspension Rebuild series was actually shot sometime in 2004-05. This is the very first EricTheCarGuy video to exist. You may also recognize the car because I ended up buying it years later and it's appeared in a few other ETCG videos. I believe this video laid the foundation for what I was eventually going to become.

  • Here is Part 2 of the Integra/Civic Rear Suspension Rebuild. This video covers the replacement of the front and rear coil springs. It also has some helpful tips on prepping for an alignment. If you do rear trailing arm bushings on these vehicles it is highly recommended that you get an alignment when you're done. If not, you could get some nasty tire wear.

  • Battery Care and Maintenance tips was actually suggested by my good friend and forum moderator at EricTheCarGuy.com, College man aka Paul Krawsek. I thought it was a great idea for a video so I ran with it.

  • The BendPak XPR-10A-LP has been the single most life changing piece of equipment in my shop to date. Having a lift is a game changer in every way when it comes to auto repair. Just the time savings alone is huge. Not to mention the wear and tear on your body.

  • I forgot to mention about setting the parking brake or leaving the vehicle in gear when lifting. Chalking the wheels is also a good idea. This slipped my mind during production but keep in mind I have a level floor and I don’t often concern myself with this part of the procedure. I just wish I had put it into the video for those that don’t have solid level floors like I do. Once again the take away is to be smart and careful when you’re lifting a vehicle. If not, you could be seriously injured or killed.

    I've been asked about doing this video about How To Safely Lift Your Vehicle for some time. In this video I cover the basics of jack, and jack stand placement for working on your vehicle. I can't stress enough how important it is to take this seriously and do this properly.

  • I've started the modifications on the 1979 Ford Fairmont. Remember kids, many of the things I do to this car also apply to Mustangs from 1979-1992. So if you're looking for a walkthrough on installing frame connectors, this will work for you too.

    I have to admit I was a bit surprised at how well this tool worked. Having using large 'old school' soldering irons for years, it was nice to pick this one up and feel how light it was. I'm also excited about the portability of this unit. I feel I'll be able to get into places that my older soldering irons couldn't.

    Today when I was putting batteries in my Elvis clock, I broke his head off. This is not the first time this has happened. He once fell off the wall and broke into several pieces that I needed to glue back together. Since my friends at J&B Tools sent me some Q-Bond to try, I thought I would try it out for this repair.

    When Bendpak sent my 2 post lift, they also sent this BL-5000 to check out. It's a more affordable and practical solution for the home garage or small shop. This thing is AWESOME. Kinda makes me wish I had looked into one of these years ago.
