You look like a 13 year old who got into his dad's closet. I feel sorry for the 10K sad people who actually belive that you are a real "mechanic". You are pretty boy who likes to flaunt that he is a "business owner" yet his business sucks. LMAO Good luck twinkle toes. Muuaaah! Oh yeah, get some new music... Christ!

My biggest mistake when i open my shop 17 years ago is the one you are making nestor !!!!!!! You have to decide whether u want to be a mechanic or shop owner !!!!!! As a mechanic you all ready know how much you can make and theres no way you make more unless you work 16 hrs a day , i did that for a long time 16 hrs a day 6 day a week on my own shop and i make money good money but theres a limit , as a shop owner theres no limit you can open 100s of shops seating in your office !!!!! Think about it !!!!!!!!!

Turning away business it the worst thing you could be telling people to do. What you should do is boss up and hire a staff of employees that have automotive experience!

Im 21 running a shop my father has left me. Some of his old friends helping me along the way as far as guidance goes. These videos are doing a lot for me dude. Working 80+ hour shifts while everyone else is partying and drinking is one mind boggling experience but after a hard days worth of work. Its the best feeling in the world to know your doing something good. Hope your shops still up and running, its gonna suck to see you leave this channel, but these videos keep me up and ready for more bullshit every day. Business is not something i thought i could handle but sooner than later all the peices are coming together so perfectly despite hiccups along every hour. Thanks again. Your a huge inspiration my guy

I'm the opposite I'd rather do engines and transmissions. The shop I work at I average 3-4 engines and maybe the same in transmissions each week and still have to help with general repairs witch sucks to me cause brakes and struts don't pay like heavy does
Paul Oshea (7 месяцев назад)
Here's a tip if you're a one man shop. Start at 6am(On the tools at 6)work till 12. You'll get 6 productive hours in before lunch. No phone calls or other distractions, during that time. Use the afternoon for ordering/office work/emails/customer queries/collection and delivery of vehicles. You'll be a lot more relaxed, and you won't burn yourself out like most mechanics do.
Dan R (8 месяцев назад)
So, you were not a part of the Nika-seal-Alu-seal debacle with I believe the M54 (E34 and E38)engine. This is where the blocks wore out and the engines had low compression. We had to replace engine internals. Big (probably the costliest campaign for BMW ever)Suprisingly you still run across these cars today (priced really low).
Edgar Bravo (10 месяцев назад)
I've pulled out two engines in my backyard on the dirt and grass with cherry picker. Not easy but fun. A Kia Sportage and Toyota Camry 4cyl. Actually tore them both down complete. If I had a shop it would've been way more fun.

Engines and transmissions are my favorite jobs, 10-15 hours per usually. RWD trans R&R trucks that pay 6 hours that takes 2 hours at most. Best weeks are always when I have multiple big jobs like that in the week

Mechanics always treat the Service Advisors like shit but it also takes a good person to estimate the work out and get it sold. Sell it high and deliver low. For both time and money. Always add contingency money. If you don't need it then deliver the repair under cost. The customers LOVE that. I've done a lot of engine jobs and there's always one or two things you have to go back and redo, readjust, tighten etc. And anytime you do an engine job, you just put a wedding ring on that fucking car. That's right you're now married to it. Anything that goes wrong, it's your fault. People think when they pay for an engine job that the entire vehicle somehow gets overhauled. "Uh yea, last week you put in a new engine now the CD player doesn't work, what did you do to my car."

With the right equipment labor intensive jobs such as engine trans replacement are great money makers. best off to have an employee that has a few under their belt
Tony Soliz (1 год назад)
I hear you bro...I've had a lot of engines lately and recently slowed down a bit...unless it's an gm ecotech or a 4 cylinder ford I want nothing to do with engine jobs. it's just me and my girl here at the shop so I'm definitely blessed to have her here because my shop is a sales and service so I still have to go to auctions buy cars sell cars and work on my own cars, but I live for the shit so I'm not complaining but I just don't need any engine jobs in my life. Plus I only have a 2 stall garage..

Flat Four Automotive (1 год назад)
Funny You say this, because 90% of my work is engine replacements. You're pricing the jobs wrong would be my guess, (or working on the wrong cars, (Euro Crap lol ;) !) .
Mod MINI (9 месяцев назад)
It also gets easier the more you do them. You can shave hours off the job if you are organized and methodical. It's a great time to upsell other work since everything is so accessible. Could pay 25% of your take home pay that month.
Flat Four Automotive (1 год назад)
I guess i didn't really have a point lol, other than that you were correct on your statments, assuming its a bmw/audi or cars of that nature.
Flat Four Automotive (1 год назад)
The Mechanic OC True, same engines over and over, but fast, Nah, lol. I guess its more about being able to push cars out of the way while the engines get built. No subfrme/suspension/or hood removal needed is pretty epic.
The Mechanic OC (1 год назад)
lol well maybe youre fast at it because you only do subies. Makes you fast when you the same engine every day!
RacerRickxx (1 год назад)
The money in a shop is the smaller jobs, the in and outs in a few hours. A hoist needs to make X amount of $ per hour to keep the shop going. You figure that out by taking all your over head for a month (don't forget to put is some sort of salary for yourself and your guys), and dividing it by the hours you are open. That gives you the $ you need to make an hour just to keep the doors open and everyone paid. Then divide it by bays or hoists. A good mechanic can work 2 or 3 at the same time, making money on all. Some flat rate guys I know average 100+ hours a week out of three bays, two with hoists. If the bay is sitting idle, or is just storing a customers car, its costing you money. Unless you are a specialist shop and can slam the engine in in a day, you are never going to make the same money as doing a number of smaller jobs in the same time. I do know of more than one specialist shop that can do an engine swap in 6 hours, and at least one trans shop, that can can remove/rebuild/replace most transmissions in a day. But that is all they do, all day, every day. They have all the specialized tools, and know every trick to speed up the job. Don't expect your general repair shop to be able to do it in the same time. They might do it just as well, but they will take longer.

mrgearheadfromhell (1 год назад)
A week to swap a engine, really? When I worked at Hall ford I drove a Crown Victoria in the shop at 7:00am and replaced the long block. I test drove the car at 5:00pm. It wasn't just a swap because I had to use the tin off the old engine as well as the timing cover, intake and exhaust manifolds. I would usually paint the new engine prior to installing it, they told me that wasn't part of the job because at that point Ford had quit painting their engines. I prefer to paint engines I install "hot rod white" it tends to brighten up the engine bay and later if it has any type of leak it is real easy to find where it's coming from. This is just something I like to do unless it's a restoration whereas the engine would be painted the same as it would have been from the factory. Although today with aluminum heads and in some cases blocks they don't get painted. My Crown Victoria has 366,000 + miles on it now, the engine I rebuilt that is currently in the car has 110,000 + of those miles. When my mother had the car it got the typical main bearing knock at cold start, I told her it would do that for 100 K miles without any issues. She didn't like it and had me build a engine for the car at 153,000 miles. I got the car from her with over 250 K and it still runs just as sweet as the day I put it in.

Vons Motorwerks (1 год назад)
When I first started in the business one of the best investments was hiring someone to answer the phones, handle sales people, order parts etc, most of the front office stuff, freed me up to turn wrenches, only way to get bigger is to delegate some of the work load.
Vons Motorwerks (1 год назад)
I grew and grew during my 30's and 40's got tired of the grind, closed my shop in California, moved out in the middle of nowhere in Missouri built a nice big 10,000sq ft shop on a 50 acre farm and now I build custom German cars for myself, build it, do a few car shows here in the midwest than sell it to finance the next build. happiest time in my wrench turning career. A lot to be said for staying small, you run the business and not letting the business run you! I like your videos, I think your doing a great service for the young guy's just starting out, I wish I had something like this when I started out!!
The Mechanic OC (1 год назад)
true. If you want to grow you ahve to hire. I dont want to grow. i only want to grow my youtube channel .
Miles Barber (1 год назад)
There is defiantly plenty of money in engine swaps if you know what your doing and are fast. My business partner can do 1-2 engine swaps in a business day at 400+ a piece.
Miles Barber (1 год назад)
So on a day your going to do an engine don't schedule anything else. That would be the best way
The Mechanic OC (1 год назад)
That's fast. If i wasnt bothered i might be able to do one in 2 days.
Cary K (1 год назад)
Yeah dude, I agree man. If you had another employee or two it'd be different, but like you said, you could make a lot more money with other, quicker jobs. Good video man. Enjoy your life.

ARe you working for free? Why not just charge the actual time/cost?
Mod MINI (9 месяцев назад)
I've had to charge friends for work lately. They get a really good deal of course. They know I am busy and that their work would eat into paying work. They offer to pay so it's not uncomfortable. They know they are getting a good job, and that they will get the same level of service as anyone else and I'll take care of them if anything goes wrong.   I don't charge for family, however.

Chivo Blanco (1 год назад)
We make a grip from engine jobs. 1-2 day turn around. Then they come back for more work. Brakes, suspension, hvac, etc. Usually customers feel that much more invested in their vehicles that they want to iron out any other kinks with the car. Long term relationships. Faulty parts covered by warranty and labor claims. We make the job worth our while. So engine jobs usually more than satisfy our needs, financially.
Chivo Blanco (1 год назад)
The Mechanic OC I'm sure there has to be a way for a higher profit margin on engine work at your shop. But if bread and butters are what make the money stick with that. Haha. We do have 3 techs a service writer, a secretary, owner on the grounds, and a smog tech at our shop. So turn around time is up to snuff. We need more volume though.
The Mechanic OC (1 год назад)
Man, I wish that was the case with my shop. lol. it always ends up bad for me.

Typically contractors who don't want a type of work will just price it so high either the client goes elsewhere or they actually make a really good profit off the work. Why doesn't that apply in this situation with engine work?
