Viewer Automotive Questions Answered ~ Podcast Episode 86

Happy Monday everyone. Today I am answering your automotive questions. I will also tell you that a few parts of this video have odd audio. It sounds like some electrical interference. It may be because I had 2 VWs in the garage today. 🙂  It is pretty subtle, but I wanted to give you a heads up. If you would like your automotive question answered on a show like this, email me, Charles(at) HumbleMechanic(DOT)com and put Question for Charles in the subject.

    Charles, this is a very informative episode. If I had a nickel for every time someone asks me about what it takes to standout and move rapidly to the main shop, I’d be up 10k or so. You did a far better job of explaining this that I have ever done. In fact, here’s what i’m going to do: I’ll bookmark this video, and send it to anyone who comes asking me about how long it takes to move from service express to the main shop. Keep up the good work charles. From a silent fan ;).
