    Hopefully these tips are helpful. The weather has been horrible here with snow ever couple of days which has put a hamper on filming my regular How-To videos. Hopefully the snow melts soon! I have some awesome videos coming!!!

    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?

    I apply pressure with my hands along the top weather stripping of the frozen door, flexing it in and out along the top outer edge of the frozen door around the window frame. Then I grab the crack of the upper corner of the door opening with my fingers and pry the door open easily ... Piece of cake!

    Hey Chris, no idea if you'll see this but why don't you make a course teaching people what they should know about how to fix their own cars? Like how to check important liquids, changing tires, all the way to replacing the fuel pump like you've done in a lot of your videos but in like a concentrated concise form? You could even edit together the videos you've already done into a more course like format and sell it online or make it into a "Chris's Car Basics" video series or whatever you want. The information you've given over the years is invaluable but even better than that is putting it in a super easily consumable and study-able way for people to learn about how cars work and how to work on their own themselves.

Open the door put one side of the tarp in it and close the door, than pull the tarp over the windshield to the other side of the door, open that door tuck the tarp in it and close the door on the tarp . It works for me every time, even in icy weather! Also put the blades over the tarp to hold it better.
