Older cars can use heavier weight oil.

That is a valuable tip of applying anti seize compound on the spark plug thread. This will prevent galling on the threads, especially with aluminum heads.

TRUE STORY!!!... I was working in a shop when an old Chrysler sedan pulled into the parking lot. Smoke everywhere. Asked the young man what was wrong... "I don't get it! The dipstick says add 1 quart. I just keep adding oil because it's low according to the stick but it just keeps smoking worse!" I asked how long this has been going on... "All day, just put the 3rd qt in this morning! LOOK... see for yourself!" He pulled it out & showed me & pointed out where it says add one qt. I could barely keep a straight face as I told him... "That's the dipstick for your transmission!"

Smart to get rid of the wstar. Youcant go wrong with jap cars. Having owned 11 hondas for the past 30 years. The most i Paid for one was 400. Many were 100.-200. All were little rusty but run good. Did no oil changes or maitance other than brakes & exhaust, just drove em till the body rotted of & moved on to the next one. Always had a couple of spares ready to go. When scraping the old one i always got more than i payed for it. Other than fuel, zero cost. Why do peaple spend 20,000-40,000 for shiny paint and in 10 - 12 years i buy the car from them for 200$

You forgot to fill the new filter with fresh oil before installing! Nothing like a dry start on those rod and main bearings!😝
Jc Burks (13 дней назад)
I read a lot of people saying fill the filter up with oil first and I done this for years myself. But I work on tractor trailers for a living and Cummins said do not do this because as soon as you start the vehicle it sucks up unfiltered oil just saying

What is your opinion on mixing oil brands when topping off oil between oil changes? Years ago it was common in the NE to put a thinner oil in winter and thicker in summer. It was believed the outside temperature effected the oil. I don't hear that anymore. What are your thoughts on this?
Jon Flanagin (16 дней назад)
Don't use oil and heat makes asphalt glue. Use silicone dielectric grease and the gasket won't stick.
Marcus Mizerak (16 дней назад)
I thought the W stands for winter/freezing viscosity at that temp?

Glad to see that the best cable was removed. Always remove the ground cable, and that is the negative cable usually. Some did have positive ground. If the wrench shorts ground to ground there will not be a spark.

Very good advice Scotty. Years ago, I did an oil change on my motorcycle. I didn't spill one drop of oil. When I started the bike, it was like a high pressure spray of oil from between the old ring that stuck to the engine and the new ring on the new oil filter. What a mess! Like you said, in a car you may not notice the problem until its too late. You have a really great channel! Keep up the good work.

Hi Scotty, you're amazing and I love your tips. These really help me with my car, but I must make one correction about something you said, it's not about your advice, which I'm 100% sure you're right on. It's just that the W in engine oil stands for Winter not Weight.

Scotty Kilmer- ruining your tires so you don't have to, for over 42 years!
X-Man (1 месяц назад)
ALWAYS disconnect the negative battery cable 1st. It's what you did but not what you said at 1:44. If you disconnect the positive first, the whole of the metal parts of the engine and compartment are "live" and negative. If your wrench is touching the positive pole on battery and then accidentally touches something metal in the process there will be an electrical arc. This will not matter if you disconnect the negative first because all the metal structure is negative and no electricity will flow. Always disconnect negative first and reconnect it last. If you only need the positive disconnected for access to something, disconnect the negative first anyway. It's the ONLY safe way.

The W in 10W30 doesn't stand for weight. It stands for Whataburger.

The dealership told me Nissan cars require power to the computer. Should you still disconnect the batter and just hook up a battery charger to the positive and negative wires? Is this just a bunch of BS?

Thank's for the videos, really help full, and like you sort of,,,( not that experience ) but do love to work on my cars, and do the service my self, I do have a question only cause you mention to use the oil listed on the cap or owners manual, and not go thicker, but how about when the vehicle has over 150k miles, should that same oil weight be used as when it was new????

Josh Johnson (1 месяц назад)
hey Scotty you know your stuff and I can tell my father was a auto body man for 35 years at one of the largest Volvo dealership in the U.S. lemco 4500 clear coat will stand just about anything you can throw at it but you have to spray it with a gun so not for everyone and not to point out a mistake... that everyone makes by the way... 10w-30 or any multi "weight" or viscosity oil the W stands for winter NOT weight what it means is the oil will flow like a sae 10 weight oil @ 32 degrees and flow like a sae 30 weight oil @ 195 degrees "operating temperature on most cars " so even when it's cold and oil will be thick a multi viscosity oil stays thinner but does not get too thin when @ operating temperature anyway Scotty your a good guy there need more honest people like you turning wenches lol

I've been working on cars for 52 years, and I recommend avoiding STP oil filters and keeping your receipts for EVERYthing you buy for your vehicle! Here's why: My son put an STP oil filter on his wife's car, and ruined the engine. Granted, the dummy should have parked the car when the valves started rattling and not driven it further without adding oil, but the root cause of the problem was a crack in the filter. I took pictures of oil dripping from it with the engine running. There were no scratches or dents in the filter nor displaced metal as with a gouge. There was absolutely no evidence of damage during installation. But, again, the DUMMY, did not keep track of his receipt. If he had kept it, he was told that either Autozone or STP would have replaced her engine.
Mark Sharp (1 месяц назад)
How about using STP high mileage additive in your oil ? The engine is 2012 6.2 liter with 112,000 miles on it.
1redrubberball (1 месяц назад)
Scotty gives good advice. Back in the '80's, I had the oil filter gasket come off and stick to the block, even though I had always rubbed a film of clean oil on the gasket, when new. I saw oil spilling out upon starting the engine, and saw what happened, and learned right then to always look for the old gasket on the old filter! My son saw it happen to him once too! DIY'ers, be alert to this! Anti-seize on plugs is excellent too, especially in aluminum heads! Can't hurt in cast iron heads, either! Don't risk electrical trouble, disconnect the negative battery terminal! And always use the correct oil viscosity, for your oil. Good advice, Scotty!
Stephen Heiser (1 месяц назад)
Some mechanics know the w in the oil viscosity doesn’t mean weight... it means winter.
cat 11 (1 месяц назад)
Great advice, just remind people it's the negative battery cable you disconnect, in the close up photo you did show it the negative terminal of the battery.
Damon Richter (1 месяц назад)
I saw the thumbnail and thought, doijt oil the seal before install = catastrophic failire
Brian Cooney (1 месяц назад)
"disconnect one of the cables???" NO. You disconnect the NEGATIVE! Always disconnect the negative before putting any kind of wrench on the positive terminal. Inadvertent metal contact with the positive terminal will do just as much damage as it will at the alternator or other positive terminals throughout the vehicle.
Billy Fauna (2 месяца назад)
The tip about the oil was interesting because a stupid guy said use heavier oil in my motor. Mistake. Thin oil it runs much better. Thanks a lot.
Julio Rizzo (2 месяца назад)
Always take the ground cable off when disconnecting the battery. That way if your wrench touches ground during removal you wont arc weld your wrench.

😂 I’ve seen the old oil filter gasket mess up. At one point in my life I worked at a quick oil change place. Being someone who turned wrenches on planes I felt (and probably was) ahead of the game with the other monkeys in the shop. I was working top bay and had a co-worker slap my foot during the leak check. 😂 Covered in oil pit guy screamed there was a massive leak. I looked at the old filter and the O-ring was missing. Same pit guy I had show how locate a Chevy fuel filter, and bleed the line pressure off. Got fired for letting a customer get his keys after an obvious BS fail on his safety inspection. Also due to the climate where I’m at I use a 10w-30 synthetic oil rather than the 5w-20 the manufacturer recommends. Not too much difference in viscosity, but it never gets cold enough for the 5w part, and it’s always hot where I’m at during the summer months.

I made the first mistake as a teenager while working for target about 10 years ago thank god I lived only 2 to 3 miles away from work at the time and got a text from my dad saying "Do not drive your car home it is leaking oil FAST!" low and behold when I checked the filter it came loose due to a left behind gasket. For years there was an oil trail from my house to the target at the mall of georgia and every time my parents would see it they'd get a kick out of it.

On the first one I actually made the mistake of leaving my old gasket on because I forget to check if it come off with the old oil filter, I was driving and circled a block and right when I got to my house I saw a HUGE oil leak! I was lucky enough to not drain all the oil out and corrected my mistake, LESSON LEARNED!! No damage was done thank god lol

The best thing to put on the gasket of a new oil filter before installing is petroleum jelly. A very thin coat goes a long way. Why did you put used oil on with your finger? A person should always use a drop of the new oil instead. It only takes a drop spread very thin. Also, you should pour some new oil in the new filter so that the pump does not starve during starting after the oil change. If your engine is starved of oil it will seize. The short duration of starving the pump can significantly damage your engine. I recommend the negative battery terminal. You forgot to tell the folks that doing this will reset the computer and delete all the trouble codes so....analyze it first if you have a 'check engine' light on the dash. Write the codes down or print them off if you have a reader that has a printer. You stated, "Twenty weight oil". NOT!!! The 'W' stands for 'Winter' to indicate what the viscosity of the oil would be like in severe cold weather. If you are going to teach people about cars then do it right.
Justin Tyme (2 месяца назад)
The reason I've had you put oil on the oil filter seal is to stop it snagging when you tighten it up
