Humble Mechanic Podcast

Almost three years ago I pressed record on the camera and started shooting the show. One of the things you guys have been asking me for is an audio only version of the videos. And I could not agree more that having an audio only side of the podcast is a great idea.

I am super happy to let you guys know the Humble Mechanic Podcast is now in a true audio format. I am so pumped to be able to bring this to you guys. Now we can ride to work together, cut the grass, hit the gym, even work in the garden. You don’t have to worry about data streaming or killing the battery on your phone. Just download from your favorite podcast place and smash play!

Going back in time
Because the video version of the show has been out for a while, I want to go back and post those shows in audio format. That means you get to travel back in time to listen to the early episodes. WOW has the show come a long way since then. For now, the way it will work is new Viewer Car Question podcast episodes will come out on Monday, just like the videos. The rest of the week I will post the older podcasts and quick answer videos from Youtube. This means you will get five days of podcasts for a really long time. This will give me time to fine tune the format, fine tune the notifications and get the show as awesome as it can be.

What about the videos?
For those of you that have been with me on Youtube, don’t worry. Nothing is really going to change from what you will see. I mean I Will still be working my face off to make the best videos and show I can. This is in addition to the video side. So much of the videos I have done for you guys work great in audio only format.

Carbon buildup direct injection

Happy Friday everyone. Today I am back in the Passat with another automotive podcast. I get asked about carbon buildup on direct injection engines all the time. Generally they are asking about the newer VW engines the TSI. That would be engine codes CCTA and CBFA. These direct injection engines are developing issues with carbon on the back of the intake valves. This is not just a VW problem. This is an issue with most direct injection engines.
