Hey ChrisFix! I just wanted to let you know that your videos inspired me to fix up my 1997 Ford Mustang! Just got done installing new spark plugs, spark plug wires, a new coil pack, and I even wired some exterior LED lights with a switch under my hood to give me extra light to work on my stang into the night. I am only 20 years old and have never known these skills before watching your videos. It is a great feeling to learn from you and then to put what you teach into practice. Starting up my mustang after installation was an amazing feeling! Thanks!

Better reason for backing cars and trucks into anparkong space, same reason why emergency services does it. Ypu don't have an emergency when parking at the end of the day,, but if you have an emergency at home like a family member injured, you can safely exit the parking quickly.

My tip is not to use a leaf blower on the snow, especially before 10 am. That noise wakes up the whole neighborhood. I have a neighbor who blows off all snow including 1/8 inch dusting from his driveway and car. Everyone HATES him 😅

The only thing I can think of to add is really only helpful if you don't have a leaf blower. I start the car first. Then I start removing snow at the back of the car. Often, especially with thick, wet snow, the hood will be warm by the time I get there and makes that part of the car a bit easier to clear. Oh! And never use a hammer to break up ice on a windshield.

I am not sure how I would write to you about something I’d really like if you could cover... maybe just leaving this comment is enough. When I first got my truck about three years ago it had heavy water spots on the glass and I used 0000 steel wool to remove the water spots but in my inexperience with vehicles I might have done it too long or too rough and it left swirl scratches all over the windows. I’ve tried waxing the windows and rubbing compound mixed with fast orange hand cleaner with pumice from a video I found on USposts and a DA polisher and didn’t work. If you have a way to fix these steel wool scratches I’d really like the video! Appreciate what you do it’s all awesome tutorials and great video editing! Thanks ChrisFix!

I personally love to get the ice off of my paint by simply just using a circular saw. Works great on the ice, and the paint should be just fine.

Ive never heard of backing in called combat parking but i didnt do that for a few days when we got lots of snow and the shield underneath my car to protect the engine bay kept getting bent back towards the rear of the car and you can constantly hear it scraping snow with it, and bumps and just scraping the pavement in general. not fun dont recommend.

If I have a lot of snow on the truck or car, I grab a long-handled broom with very soft bristles and the snow comes off very quickly. And not to worry cuz I've been doing this for years and have never ever found one tiny scratch on the paint or molding. This is the best trick for me removing snow if you have to be somewhere and time is short. The broom is about 2 feet wide so you can just imagine how fast and how much snow can be removed in just one swipe. Use a back and forth method (push to remove snow away. reposition broom then pull snow towards you) Boom, you're done.

Chrisfix i think you missed some tips 1. always let your car heat up 2. If you have a truck that has 4x4 put it in 4x4 it will help the traction in the snow 3. Make sure your headlights, taillights and turn signals are working so everyone can see you Love your videos keep up the great work

You should see some of the cars here in Finland, especially this winter. In my city it's been about -20°C (-4°F I think) for like two months straight and there has been more snow than we comfortably have room for on the roads and streets. Some cars that I've seen are completely buried under snow :D. It can get pretty dangerous though because the roads become narrower and a lot of parking space is lost. Nice vid tho, I should probably adopt some of these methods if I ever have to park on a driveway (currently I have a carport, which removes the need to take care of almost every other problem except for the cold).

Windshield wiper arms left up are a bad idea. Something in the spring mechanism fails on Hondas preventing the wiper blade from making full contact with the glass. One wiper arm is $58.00 from the dealership, installation not included. In a blind stupor from clearing snow from the driveway and ice from the windshield, I managed to leave one up. The wife said you should not have done that, as the News Media had made her aware. Opps!!!

hi chris love your videos and thats why i am coming to you. i did not watch your "guide to buying a used car" in time to save myself $6,500 on my 2011 dodge charger v6 with 177k miles (which is alot thats why i am not too upset about the mechanical issues) but i believe i can save her. the dealer did in fact reset the codes and through my 10-15 test drive all was fine no check engine light. i turn her off and back on just to double check and its still fine besides things here and there nothing to throw me from it. well i get home less than a hour later taking a look at the cabin air filter and oil which where fin and no leaks as far as i could tell i get back in and its Christmas and maria carry is singing on my dash. check engine light and the battery light. i then take it to a auto zone and have them run the codes and it was a misfire in cylinder 2 and its calling for a cylinder head replacements. as for the battery took it to a mechanic and my alternator is working but they are saying its over charging which is causing my speedometer to shut off as well as the radio. so i am now at the mechanics hands when it comes to this car which i really love and want to drive it but i do not know if i should just call it a lemon and get my money back or see about fixing it myself. also there is a clicking when the ac turns on which has been determined to be a door in the ac unit that is stuck that might be causing the air to run hot. i just want to get your opinion on if i should try to fix it and enjoy it or move on and also is there any videos that would help me fix it that you have made or plan to make in the near future.

Trick that I used over the years is to keep antifreeze in a spray bottle. I’m not good at looking at the weather sometimes and it is nice to be able to just hop outside and spray the windshield with antifreeze or the side view mirrors or that rear window when I’m running late. Thanks for your tips as well. Definitely like the tips about the wax on the shovel. Great idea.

*THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS VIDEO IN PARTICULAR BUT I NEED YALLS HELP* So I just removed my OEM trunk lip on my car so I could put a new one on and Volkswagen I guess uses not only a 3M adhesive but also some sort of epoxy to help secure it. I got the 3M tape off no problem but I cannot remove the epoxy to save my life. Ive tried all the low level removers like Goo Gone and WD40 and they didn't do anything. I also took it to a few body shops and they all said they would have to damage the paint and just repaint the whole trunk. Id been avoiding using a paint thinner or something really strong because I really don't want to destroy the paint. Does anyone have any suggestions? I think my next move may be to use a Q tip and dab the acetone on very lightly to try not to kill the paint.

Anyone can advise on this issue? Driving 2008 estima. Facing this problem. Gear engage to drive on level road. Release brakes half way but car won’t move. Need to fully release and then can feel the gear kick in. If car is on a mild up or down slope, release brakes half way, the car will roll due to slope and then can feel gear kick in. These happen after car warm up. When car is cold these problem doesn’t exist. Anyone can help?
