I have a 1963 ford galaxy and I want to replace the original engine with a fuel efficient engine that gets 40miles per gallon or an electric engine that doesn't run on fuel gas. What can I use please to will replace the original engine, will the motor mounts have to be replaced also? If I replace the original engine will have to replace the original transmission, differential,  radiator?

Does it matter the type of fluid for power steering?
Brad On Cars (19 дней назад)
Best to check your car's owner's manual for specifics (or google it). It can be a big deal if you use the wrong stuff. Also if it is losing fluid that means something is leaking. It's not like oil where the motor is expected to use a little between changes (typically). Good luck! I wrench too and do my best to share what I know! -Brad @bradoncars

They are not that scary so long as you pay attention to a few key things before you start! I now work on all my cars (even the air suspension in my old Merc wagon!). Just be safe and do a little research. They are pretty darn easy once you know a thing or two! -Brad @bradoncars

I feel like there were a lot of crucial topics of automotive repair hit in this video that every car owner needs to know if they want to own a car. The big ones are reading tire pressure, checking oil levels, and checking your anti-freeze to identify leaks or low levels. For anyone who thinks they are ready to do their own mechanic work now, who thinks they could benefit from using their soap after working on their car? https://www.naturesgardencandles.com/candlemaking-soap-supplies/item/00mecsoa/-mechanics-soap-recipe.html

I check all the fluids every 2 weeks. One thing I've learned over the years is to keep up with the vehicle maintenance schedule in the owners manual and you extend the life of the vehicle and keep it running in good condition. I also use car maintenance and management software to track my maintenance schedule www.automotivewolf.com so I don't forget anything. Been using this software for 5 years and never had a major repair on any of my vehicles. It also creates a great vehicle maintenance log that I used to sell one of my vehicle very quickly.

Sir, I met with an accident in my car the whole cooling system got damage. I kept the engine running for half n hour in idle position, a very bad smell came out of the engine do u think that it has damage the block head or the gasket.... Sir plz help me
RzVids (6 месяцев назад)
Owners manual is useless... I needed my brakes changed, owners manual doesn’t tell how to do that. Doesn’t tell you how to change brake fluid, coolant. Do yourself a favor and buy a SERVICE manual for your car.
Brad On Cars (19 дней назад)
Exactly. >Shop manual< is what you need for the how-to. Owner's manual just tells you what fluids to buy, when to service the car, etc.

How change battery of the car?
Brad On Cars (19 дней назад)
Remove old one; insert new one... ;) So long as you buy the correct replacement it should be reasonably straightforward for cars that have the battery under the hood. Some german cars have them underneath (or in the hatch i.e. BMW X5s from a few years ago). You'll have to reprogram your radio but that's easy...

J. Thomas Lanham (1 год назад)
I love your video content! **Problem** I have a 2005 GMC Yukon XL 5.3 Vin# 1GKEC16Z75J154574. Start no crank problem until 2nd start attempt. Checked fuel pressure at the test port on the fuel rail. With the Key on but not started the pressure indicates 25+- psi but quickly declines to 0. Checked after vehicle starts pressure holds steady at 48psi. Once vehicle cranks no problem accept a light rough idle. Fuel pump is original from factory. Current mileage is 241k. I don't see a fuel regulator to check. Anything else to do before replacing fuel pump. Hesitant to replace pump cause once cranked there are no problems. I thought fuel pump failure was all or nothing. Thank you for your help.

MsPoohdy (1 год назад)
u said not to used the break fluid after 3 weeks is that after purchase or look at the expiration date at the store then judge from the date that's my first question next does all car air filter come in the same size or does size varies and what's the exact tire pressure for the average standard coupe
Brad On Cars (19 дней назад)
For tire pressure use 32 pounds all around. That's a good baseline.

Besides these videos what is the best way to learn about cars? I currently live at home and the car I drive is my parents' and they won't let me explore around... it's also 2016 so it's in good shape. I don't plan on becoming an expert but I do want to know how to do the basics myself and understand what my friends are talking about when they fire off "car talk."

there is a toyota vitz 2002-2004 (same engine with this toyota yaris / echo), and there is a squeaking/squealing sound somewhat like a belt when slow turning while running (aircon turned on).. owner replaced the bellt but sound still exists. it occurs occasionally specially in slow turn.. what could be the problem?
Brad On Cars (19 дней назад)
New belts need to be tightened after they stretch a little after the first few weeks! It's very straightforward. Hit me up on my channel (bradoncars) and I will do a video on it if you like!
sandiego11calif (1 год назад)
You're forgetting something REALLY important when checking fluids: Check them when the car is WARM, not cold, especially oil. Oil in a cold car has settled and does not give an accurate reading. Also, a dab of vasoline on the air filter clamps will make it easier to put the clamps back on. Also, what's with the black tape on the can of lubricant? Are you afraid of showing the brand name of a competitor? It's rather tacky.....and I truly doubt the manufacturer will hate you if you leave the black tape OFF of the can. It looks tacky boys. Brake fluid: NOT use an opened bottle of brake fluid? Where did you get this? I've been driving for over 40 plus years, I've NEVER had a problem with using a previously open bottle of brake fluid however, if you're THAT afraid of contamination getting into the bottle, put the bottle into a plastic bag and tie it off to avoid ANY contamination. Really....I've never had a problem and I sure as Hell am not about to dump a good bottle of brake fluid.

It's absurd how they charge you hundreds of dollars to replace or fix basic stuff. I'm a trained technician. I've worked on projects for the army, navy, air force and homeland security. I can fix stuff just fine at a fraction of the cost.

if there's coolant in the reservoir you shouldn't worry about it unless your car starts overheating, but if you need to check, wait until the car is cool, and open the cap that's on the directly on top of radiator (most cars have it there, or do as the video says and "check the owners manual")
