Unfortunately, not all mechanics are responsible and honest with their customers. There are several things they don't want you to know so that they can take advantage of you when you bring your car in.

    SUMMARY:
    - The truth is that the biggest problem with the battery comes not from the battery itself but from the wires connected to it. The spots where they're attached to the battery get damaged by corrosion.
    - Various car experts state that the earliest you should start to worry about an oil change is after driving a minimum of 7,500 miles.
    - You'll probably agree that no one can ignore the terrible screeching of car brakes. But the most likely cause of these terrible sounds is rust on the brake pads.
    - Some car service centers attract clients by promising free bumper-to-bumper examinations of their vehicles. After you bring your car in, a mechanic will most likely discover that it has tons of problems — which need to be fixed right away.
    - Don't fall for the offer of free lifetime muffler replacement! If you agree to this, you'll just end up paying more money in the long run.
    - Before you drive to the garage, mark the tires with chalk. You can write the letters "RL" on the rear left tire and "FR" on the front right tire. After you get your car back, check where the marks are.
    - Few people know that the most widespread reason for the check engine light to appear on your dashboard is because your gas cap isn't fastened well enough.
    - Your mechanic may suggest that you buy additives for the engine, gas tank, or transmission. After you agree, you find out that these additives cost you an arm and a leg!

    This is kinda nutty. Nobody blasts brake rotors. Battery's need water added in many cases and the occasional trickle charge to extend their life. While there are many mechanics that are dishonest, if you're making a video about it, have good information. Rotating tyres is important because fronts will scrub the inside or outside tread edge off and rears will wear more evenly.

    I agree with him, but Mechanics really take advantage of WOMEN! I'm very happy that my car shows up on the dashboard and reads "Oil change" also if one of my tires even needs Air it shows which tire. I first read the manual cause some signals I don't understand. And Yes, my engine light came on one time and I read to make sure the gas cap was on properly, and that's all it was 😊

    I work on my own cars but I take my car to get alignments from time to time. I been lied to about my oil and brake fluid being old and dirty literally days after they were changed out. I even had a BMW that was still under warranty with services and got all fluids changed before getting an alignment from a nearby shop, only to be told that my fluids all need to be replaced. I explained to them that it’s impossible and I will investigate if my fluids are old. I checked, and behold... my fluids were all fresh and the shop was lying to me.

    If you don't change your oil engine regularly every 5000 kilometer or every 6 months:

    ( 6k ) engine noise increase
    ( 7k) car cranks Too Long Before it Starts
    ( 8k) camshaft position sensor will fail
    ( 9k )The oil turns to sludge and precipitates in the engine
    ( 10k ) After the oil became sludge oil pump will stop working and engine will overheated and it will damage to Conrod bearings

    one day on road your car's check engine light on and the car turns off and you have to pay a lot more to get your car engine repaired

    Not true, if you have rust on the break disc that means that something with the piston go wrong and means that the wheel do not stop or even slow down when you push the break pedal. ..........second if the battery stay in the shop more than 1 month it will be less charge and will die after one or two years, another bull_____t. If the battery stay 6 months in the shop in the moment when you put it in the car the engine starts with the first try and from this moment if you drive it 1 hour the battery is exactly new one like the same battery in the another shop that comes from the manufacture today.(apologise for my English )

    Your video is misleading. Only in half of the things you talked about are right. Not rotating tires does lead to tire wear issues. Some additives for oil does help it with things the oil company does not want to pay to add to the oil, like friction modifiers. And you do need to change oil when it gets dirty. Oil dirt works like Ice tea when you add sugar... too much and it drops the dirt on the cylinder heads and under the intake manifold. You do not need to change it if it is clean, but is it discolors... CHANGE IT!!
