  • I've known Magic Mike for years and years, over a decade, longer than the Car Wizard actually. 4:00 was an obvious joke (he knew I was joking) but if you want to take it as an Ellen Degeneres moment, go ahead... It did look rude, it was rude looking at it out of context. Sorry if you think I'm a terrible person now.

    • I figured as much and didn’t give it a second thought. If anyone wanted to judge you, the video showing your double digit car collection would be the likelier choice. You MIGHT be Satan incarnate, but who could tell? This example of you apologizing for your behavior is almost as nice as you were being when you shooed the stripper guy away. You could butch it up a bit and still seem like the nicest dumb car channel on YT.

    • @Mens Lifestyle Do you have a problem with someone providing context? What is the problem with explaining to people who obviously did not understand? If you don't explain people complain, if you do explain you complain. Do not defend yourself over this comment or are you sensative? Dick.

  • Why aren’t the transmissions repairable?

  • Please set a good example of safe driving, and keep both your hands on the steering wheel. I had a blow out on the front tyre of a Ford Zodiac MK4, the power steering pulled the car in to the centre barrier, and, I lost control of the car because I only had 1 hand holding the wheel, after spinning off the Motorway, up a bank, rolling twice and landed on my roof, facing the way I had driven from, I walked away from the crash, mainly because I had a seat belt on.

  • Hey Hoovies, Just happened to stumble on this video and the title scared me a little (ok a lot) because I have a 2011 SLS Coupe. Couple of questions: What is the mileage on your SLS and do you know if the trans fluid had been changed before? I have 5,500 miles on mine, but the trans fluid has never been changed. One reason is I do not trust the dealership to do it. Watching your video it seems fairly easy once you know what is involved, and correct me if I am wrong but it seems to change the trans fluid all that is involved are drain plugs. I think it is time to do mine as condensation can affect fluids. Would it be possible for you to list exactly what fluids are needed for the trans? Thanks much appreciated. At the risk of this being a shameless plug here is a link to my SLS

  • The AMG GTs also has dry sump, not just the SLS. When my GTS was in Mercy service, the manager told me they just replaced the DCT in another one. $55,000!! And that's what they billed Mercedes under warranty! It would cost we poor owners more. Mine has run regally, but that issue looming over has me damn worried. 😬

  • Another source for your vibration could be those General Grabber tires. I have had bad luck with those tires, they vibrate a lot. The tires feel like they are square; especially when they are cold. Get rid of them asap!

  • A good way to have a maintenance failure is interrupt the mechanic while he is doing the job. Asking questions constantly and pointing out the lose bit of plastic while he is about to fill something, or tighten a drain plug is a good start to making sure he forgets where he is at in the procedure.

  • Hmmm, in a previous video you stated the MB 300 SL as your favorite car of all time. Were you not aware that the six cylinder engine in the 300 SL is also mounted at an angle to clear the hood? Also, in the Sixties, Dodge and Chrysler had a slant six in their Dart and Valiant models that no doubt powered those cars for millions of miles.

  • You are supposed to check the temp of the oil after changing it using the Star diagnosis tool and also check it has not been overfilled also there is a specific torque setting on the plug. If you want to protect a 30k transmission do it properly

  • 4.32 "Complete new shaft will be here next week" Is the universal joint not available? I had the same issue with a "U" joint on a BMW 320i. The only worn part of the driveshaft was the rear U joint. BMW said no U joint was available but a complete new driveshaft was, for $1800. A German parts supplier in Toronto got me a U joint for $49. That was 5 years and 60,000 miles ago. It turns out the replacement U joint is actually a Volvo part, and the supplier was aware of that.
