Quick questoin. What interval of changing is preferred, the one in the owner's manual or inthe bottle of the fluid? My '04 jeep wants me to change the oil every 3K miles, but the oil I use is some fancy synthetic "can last up to 15K miles" oil. I check it periodically and have been changing it every 10K. Good enoough? Bad?

An engine doesn't run dry when you don't fill the oil filter, there is plenty of residual oil left on all the contact surfaces

7:30 I think the "running dry" thing without pre filling the oil filter is a myth. I used to do it all the time but not anymore. The car has plenty of oil left to turn over a few times before the new oil pumps thro the filter.

@Chris Fix is it important to use different pumps for each fluid? . . . Can i change out my steering fluid with a turkey baster too? . . . How can you tell the difference [symptom wise] whether you need new brake fluid, or need new pads? . . . & finally, do only 4x4 and AWD's have transfer cases, and thus only those need transfer case fluid changes? . . . Oh and if you have suspension in the back as you do in the front do they need greasing? what about front wheel drive (no need to worry bout drive train then+-?) and you don't remove the old grease? . . . I'm assuming you only did the front suspension cuz yr cars back susp. are leaf struts? . . . P.S. this was the straw that broke the camels back....SUBSCRIBING!

Is it true that changing transmission fluid on CVT may endup with a non-working transmission? 2006 Lexus IS 350 ‎is said to have a 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission. Doest that mean it's traditional automatic transmission? For traditional transmissions, how often should the transmission fluid be changed?

This problem happens usually when the engine is cold or first start in the morning? Do you have any suggestions?

One note would be to make a video on how to jack a FWD unibody car if you haven't already. If it were any of my old cars I'd title it "How to Crush Your Rotted Pinch Welds Without Crushing Your Brake Lines." I like prefilling the oil filter, I was a lube tech for 2 years and nobody ever tought me that, good idea. Good idea to feel oil and trans fluid for metal shavings. If you have to take the trans pan off check the magnet to see if you should sell the car immediately lol. Coolant change reminded me of the time I took the lower radiator hose off a F250 without depressurizing the system. Coolant tastes bitter, lol. I learned that day. One very minor note is to always use distilled water not tap water when mixing concentrate but that's on the instructions. Also torque your lugs again when it's on the ground. On your hummer video you used teflon tape on the drain and fill bolts in the diffs and transfer case, never did it myself but doesn't seem like a bad idea. I just learned U joints have grease (facepalm) only 4x4/RWD I ever owned was my $175 '89 ramcharger so I didn't change anything (except the oil every 3 weeks... because it blew by fuel into the crankcase.. and then leaked onto the manifold... and I had to use 20w50 to get decent compression, lol). Your vids are great man, and now that Scotty's done you got free reign. As soon as I move out of NYC and get a car again (insurance is ridiculous here and parking is worse so no need with the trains), I'm after a CRX (fingers crossed SI but I'll be lucky to find anything), Del Sol, or Prelude (also will be lucky to find one repairable). Used to work at Honda. Gonna head south and hopefully find one that still has a floor. Good shit man, I just subscribed.
