Let'S cut the crap on cutting the grease, washing your car with household detergent, just how egregious a breach of automotive etiquette. Is this that's next, I'm John Cadogan from Auto expert comdataís, you the place where I see new car buyers save thousands off their next new cars. Hit me up on the website for that first, let us cut this crap and also the grease and the grime, and then we might detain ourselves briefly with a few recent and salty nuts hand-picked. Of course, it could be you, but only the creme de la creme of nut dela nut actually makes it onto this fine upstanding family program. That'S all coming up, I'm thinking about hand washing my car gray metallic and wanted to know. If using the detergent I used to wash my dirty dishes would be suitable. Unfortunately, the internet is full of dire warnings against using washing up liquid sounds like bullshit to me. Your thoughts, the chemistry, is pretty straightforward. Detergents break down grease so that you can dissolve it in water and they are slippery and foamy to make it fun in the hot tub with the cheerleaders and also to help lift up surface contamination and reduce the other kind of grease elbow grease. Because nobody likes a cheerleader with surface contamination, who's also hard to work. With speaking from bitter personal experience, you know, people commonly use liquid, dishwashing detergent or laundry detergent to wash their cars and amazingly enough. A rift in space-time does not open up and allow the Four Horsemen of religious nutbag apocalyptic folklore to ride on through these products are pretty effective at cutting grease and they have to be to get congealed, saturated fat and residual bolognese sauce off the plates at home, And sweaty crutch smell out of your undergarments, so I guess they're just right. If you've been eating bolognaise off your car or giving it a good post-workout rub with your wedding vegetables they're the obvious choice, if you're doing that, but a good safety tip there. If you are going to do both of those things, do them in that order, so that you do not contravene local health regulations. Apropos of the preparation of food, the problem is actually that these household detergents are a bit too effective, they're, so good at cutting grease. That they will probably strip away any protective wax on the paint of your mother's Corolla, leaving it subsequently exposed to environmental contamination. She'S, thus very likely to strike you from the will. And then everything will go to your sister, whom you have always detested anyway, and nobody wants that, except, of course, this environmental contamination right. That'S everything from bird shit and industrial fallout on the acid etching attack front grits, which is often you know, silicon dioxide, which is small and hard and sharp and thus abrasive, and it causes swirl marks in the paint when you rub it off. So, there's that the wax on the paint acts as both a chemical and a physical barrier to these insidious paint attack vectors and if you strip it away. Obviously it's not going to be doing any of that. Protecting detergent attacks grease directly and the foam lifts up the abrasive particles off the paint, and it helps thus minimize swirl marks. A good safety tip here is to wash from the top of the car down the better to prevent the higher concentration of abrasive particles lower down from being lifted up. And if you want to be a real car detailing car care. Nazi use a second sponge for the scungy of wheels and sills, and all of that area down there [ Music ]. There is obviously a class of person who cares deeply about the appearance of the fine chariot and another class of person who really could not give a flying proverbial about that kind of thing and a sliding scale of people somewhere in the middle. If you're kind of in the middle with, I suspect the vast majority of us, the people who sort of care how their car looks but they're, definitely not true car care. Zealots then just use a car specific one shot wash and wax detergent based product get the car wax twice a year and move on with your life. You know the better to detain yourself over the stuff that really matters so know. The world definitely will not end. If you use household liquid detergent, but it is certainly a sub-optimal car washing hack, if you are that zealot, though you can detain yourself all day long with multistage car, primping and monuments and processes, just knock yourself out polish, it like a 15 year old. That'S the kind of thing you enjoy and, of course, if you really do not give a shit here, then I recommend a wire brush, a scotch-brite scour and wash it all down with some Drano [ Music ]. Quite strangely, a small number of people felt compelled to apologize for the fact that ford, holden Mitsubishi and Nissan paid no income tax in Australia for at least three years. John you're, an auto expert, but not a tax expert corporations have pay little or no taxes do not mean our tax dodgers are unethical and vice versa. There are many things that legitimately affect profitability, not necessarily due to shady accounting or cheating. All major companies hire tax experts to find ways to pay as little tax as possible in the long run, unless there is a deliberate illegal tax evasion, everyone ends up paying their fair share. I was very surprised at the number of people expressing this sentiment. However, I'd suggest that attacking the qualifications of the commentator is a weak way to kick off. You don't need to be a tax expert at all to understand that it is manifestly unfair for an individual on 100k a year salary to pay more income tax than a corporation like Shitsville, Chevy or Ford earning billions. In fact, I'd submit that if we got our fine Democracy together or a representative sample in a focus group, perhaps down the pub, we could take democracy's temperature on this and remember corporations don't vote people do. We could even give Shitsville Chevy's CFO or some slime bag from the FCA. I thirty minutes or more on the floor, to talk us all around on the inherent equity of the status quo. Good luck with that! Our fine Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, shit himself, wants to detain us all endlessly with issues that really don't matter, such as gay marriage. It'S a diversion I just let people marry whomever or whatever they wanted. If someone wants to marry the Sydney Harbour fucking Bridge, knock yourselves out, I now pronounce you man and coat hanger. Thank you now. Can we finally get on with fixing the issues that really do matter to ordinary shits villians? You are a stupid individual. Hydrogen is not the lightest gas in the universe. There is one more helium damn fuck, I did scour all of the chemical literature and although there are nine isotopes of helium, none of them are called helium dumbfuck. In point of fact, helium gas is twice as heavy as hydrogen gas in conveniently the molecular weight of helium is four for hydrogen. It'S two. If you doubt me on this, and it is pretty basic high school chemistry just go to google and type in. What'S the lightest gas, you know you are kind of entitled to your own opinion on some epistemic ly, ambiguous things, chocolate vs. strawberry. You know blondes brunettes. You are not, however, entitled to your own facts. Love the Barnaby. Jab, keep the bastards honest, I'm pretty sure Barnaby enjoys a jab. Ultimately I mean he got paid 150 grand for having one for those of you who know nothing of shit, civilian politics. Barnaby Joyce is the former deputy prime minister of our fine South Pacific shithole. He is, in fact, a genetically modified beetroot in a ridiculous hat who fell over accidentally in the shower one day and landed inside one of his ministerial aides. There'S no nice way to put this a child ensued and sadly, he lost the big gigas turned bullshit. Sexes are slicker in chief and ultimately, he sold his story to the trashy media for a hundred and fifty big ones. It'S a modern adaptation, of course, of Samuel Taylor, Coleridge's immortal classic Rime of the Ancient Mariner with screenplay, I guess by Lewis Black. It all sounds like a fairly tacky, low-rent and ethically Bank thing for a sitting member of parliament to do mainly because that's exactly what it is personal opinion, and I guess he wonders why everyone now calls him the Beach Rooter search, hashtag, the beach Rooter on Twitter And you will see exactly what I mean: how would you like to have your loved ones, cemetery monument used like this mr. fun is talking about this scene from my recent he under eye 30 n review cemetery monument. It'S called a grave to answer your question when my loved ones depart this mortal coil. I expect them to be with Jesus and Allah and Thor and Zeus, which is to say that they won't exist, except in my memory. How is my use of this grave? Any different to the many and varied uses of cemeteries in Hollywood, as long as the site was not damaged, and I assure you it was not I'm sure the only people directly affected really were not in a position to give a shit would rather push me Commodore. Then get a lift with you, belief and sure I'll buy whatever I like new come out. He'S sweet agreed totally. Well, almost certainly, instead of getting a lift with me, I too would prefer you to push you're fine Commodore, preferably over a cliff into the Great Southern Ocean, the better to emulate the sales performance and public popularity of the new french-owned german-made Shitsville Chevy flagship, faux pas. The new Holden Commodore is a dog which has absolutely bombed even worse than I thought it ever would they should have retired the Commodore nameplate, with the V F to the better, to give it a respectful burial in place of this undignified, lingering death football meat, pies Kangaroos and shooting ourselves in the foot the Shitsville Chevy way what this can hamed to with Subaru Impreza's, and there is nothing wrong with the Toyota Corolla. Honestly, you are just a bell and bellend. Really, I think he's talking about you all night. You know that you mean much more to me than that anyway, Corolla most boring popular car in the universe. A lot of people want a boring uninspiring car with the approximate personality of the second fridge in the laundry of course, and if that's you knock yourself out. Oh, what a feeling ken ham shit smells worst export ever by a country mile, worse, even than Shane Warne, leader of the creationist fucktard cult in [, Music, ], Kentucky retard, Stan emblematic of people who refused to look at the facts because the Bible tells them so Anytime, I need an example of why it is dangerous to ignore the facts. Ken ham is my go-to guy, the obvious choice. Mr. ham is a former school principal terrifyingly enough who says the world is just 6,000 years old, actual scientifically proven age 4.6 billion years. So there's that hashtag ffs, I'm John Cadogan. I hope this helps Monday mornings generally so hard few nuts might lighten your load thanks for watching





Every now and then someone makes a new and brazen attempt to scale the daunting North Face of Mount ignoramus. Invariably they achieve new dizzying heights before the mountain shrugs them off and they plunge deep into a crevasse from which the only hope of escape is to tunnel out by credit card. I'M John Cadogan from auto expert kaamdar, you the place where Ozzie new car buyers save thousands off their next new cars hit me up on the website. For that today's predict. Amore comes from a woman. I will not name mainly because I have no burning desire. No need to embarrass her, specifically on top of the problem that she already faces. Question about the quality of modern engines. I have a 17 month old vehicle. We serviced it at 1 year 35 thousand kilometers. We thought it was a 1 year interval equals didn't think it had to be at 15,000. Kilometres service was fine now five months into the service, and the engine has seyis ed. Is that right? No, that's not right. I recommend spellchecker I before E, except weighing surveiling or reimbursing either a seized, caffeinated deity or a heinous seismic poltergeist concierge on a heifer whose neighbor reignited eight feisty foreign sovereign atheist reindeer after a heist. That'S weird: is it possible for an engine to completely pack up after only 17 months? Are they not built like they used to be? Would love your advice because at this stage we're up for a new engine? It'S now not covered under warranty, which will essentially cost us five to ten thousand dollars. Unfreaking believable. But perhaps I should not be surprised anyone can whip down to Bunnings, which is kind of like Home Depot, if you're not from around here and procure a nine inch angle grinder one of my favorite implement for purifying the gene pool so incredibly effective. Then should you choose to operate it in the privacy of your own domicile nude at 2:00 a.m. on a ladder after consuming a bottle of Jack Daniels, perhaps wearing a car battery attached to your reproductive organs via a set of jumper cables? Then I suppose nobody is really going to intervene and stopyou, but frankly, as a professional, I should learn you in the pre-emptive advancement that any one of those operational decisions is probably a mistake. The point is, there are minimum responsibilities that come with just about everything. There'S an operational baseline that is simply assumed and there are consequences if you fail to heed these, even if only because you are ignorant of them. I understand that this is an unpleasant position to be, and I absolutely get that a blown engine definitely not fun. I mean I've had fun, and that is not it. This situation is, of course, not a one-off. It'S collective ignorance and not the first time. I'Ve had someone try to deflect accountability after letting the service lapse more approximately infinity longer than they should have not servicing a car for thirty five thousand Kay's is nuts. That'S almost one lap of the planet. It'S utterly negligent and completely indefensible to feign ignorance. In the face of the repair bill that you can't jump over, what I cannot defend here is the tactic in play, rather than just take responsibility. Let'S try to brush it off on the carmaker. Servicing requirements are very clearly spelled out in the owner's manual. Even a politician would get them. The clear protocol is servicing on the basis of time or distance which ever occurs first and the intervals specified other maximum possible operational times and distances between services. Pretty simple huh twelve months or fifteen thousand Kay's is a very generous service. Interval. 35,000 Kay's is a cruel and unusual punishment. There is no doubt in my mind, legally or morally that there will be no regal room for having this fixed under consumer law, no grounds for legal action and almost certainly no altruistic offering by the carmaker to pick up the tab. This has nothing to do with engine build quality, a properly maintained engine from any of the leading car makers will last two hundred thousand kilometres, maybe more depending on the usage, and this is not a quality problem. This is a you subjected it to enhanced interrogation at Abu Ghraib and it died problem. One of the more perverse feedback consequences of the incredible advances in automotive reliability over the past forty years is the rise of a mechanically decoupled segment of the population. I'M talking about people who own a car but believe that maintenance is optional. I'M tipping the car at the epicenter of this shitstorm has not had the oil or coolant levels checked in thirty five thousand Kay's ditto the tire pressures. The only reason these Muppets bother filling up with fuel is that they know the car's going to become furniture if they don't. If these people just check the oil, water and air every second time they filled up with fuel, reliability generally would jump through the roof. There'S an elephant in the room to just about every car has a service indicator. A message on the dashboard says: I dick ed, get your car serviced. It'S do I need it now when yours has been a glow for the past 20,000 kilometres that sound you hear, is you loading the chambers and pulling the trigger repeatedly Russian Roulette? Let'S play yes, there's underlying science. Here too, pesky little rule called the second law of thermodynamics, all about a thing called entropy. It'S a scientific fact: a physical property like length or weight, it's a measure of inherent spatial and energetic homogeneity, randomness and you're thinking. So what take a look at a balmy old shit-heap one day, a real dung box and imagine the day that it rolled off the production line, not a single defect, all shiny, no rust, all the systems online and operational, even new car smell. So what happened? The answer is time happened. Entropy increases with time. Entropy is why the house needs painting it's. Why steel rusts? It'S why food spoils everything gets messy untended on a personal level. Entropy is why we all get old and die. Cancer is literally entropy at work on your DNA and I'm not making that up on the most macro level. Entropy is a virus that infects the universe. It'S actually entropy that imprints the arrow of time on the universe. Thank you very much, Stephen Hawking, the ultimate conclusion being a totally homogenized universe with no free energy. They even call that the heat death of the universe - and this is of course, why there is no God a creator - would not have botched this design so badly. So breathtakingly inelegantly, it's all just an accident and anyway back on earth. Entropy is why you cannot escape the obligation to service your car, a very expensive lesson for some I'd suggest anyway, before I let you go words of naked encouragement just now. Some feedback from the YouTube comments feed for balance. If you believe anything, this Muppet has to say you're, easily swayed and will probably believe anything News, Corp's back idiot at best news, corn, very, very harsh, Brett Jackson and it's two words dickhead just saying, but you very much Brett. Thank you sincerely for your interest in the reports, and now this missive from anti-semite. I doubt there is any presenter on YouTube, more annoying and a worse asshole than this ozzie loser, at least he was honest to say he lives in Shitsville. Undoubtedly, the descendant of an English felon likely pedophile rapist. So that's just about all I can take today from me: asshole Ozzy, loser descendant of a Pompano rapist reporting live from Shitsville. Actually, my relatives were on the side of law and order. Here I am a descendant of Isaac Tarr, who was a Marine on the first fleet on the Sirius which arrived here in Shitsville with a bunch of British pedo rapists, bread, stealers belowdecks on the 26th of January 1788. Just saying so, you see entropy even infects. The comments feed it really is everywhere. If you've ever dreamed of being a YouTube creator, do make a point of going on the concrete sandwich. Diet! Won'T you because you will need to harden up somewhat. The lowest form of humanity is out there. Entropy ingush, it out of itself sitting on stained basement, captures all alone in the sweaty boxes, with no friends unable to get it up, eating Cheetos and doing what they do best, which would be enthusiastically impotent lee impotently, both of those things being nobody - and I kind Of like that, there really is a place for everyone. Don'T forget, get your damn car serviced on time. If you know what's good for you, I'm John Cadogan subscribe and lube up for more of me, I'd like that. I hope this helps thanks for watching





Coming up the biggest car servicing ripoff in Australia, new development there and guaranteed, you have already been ripped off by this. I'M John Cadogan from auto expert comdata. You the place best new car buyers, safe thousands off their next new cars, hit me up on the website. For that, the GD VP of Shitsville, the gross domestic product grew by an incredible 25 percent just last week, thanks to increased output from some of our more world-class homegrown bullshitters, the science denying asshole Morrison government did nothing except contribute here, predictably enough, but here is the Genius of politics right: they sexed it up like a real win for consumers. Sorry I mean voters and the media typically just lapped it up and spat it back out as dumb shits. Here'S how Nick Toscano kicked off his wonderfully authority of investigative piece on this in Fairfax Media global car makers will be compelled to provide tens of thousands of Australian mechanics with the technical information needed to fix increasingly computerized modern vehicles under a new plan being developed by The federal government to be completely fair, high-level government asshole spin-doctors did use all the right hot-button buzzwords in their release, including level playing field and hard working strands. It'S very hard for a journalist to swim against a strong EM tide of that nature. The cognizant of the looming election elite, bullshitter and junior burger Minister for finance and Treasury said sessile. They'Re, said more choice and more competition will put downward pressure on the cost of vehicle repairs. Ensuring the best deal for families when getting their car repaired because clearly is only ever families who need to get their cars repaired and sorry to rain. On the whole, let's get reelected parade, but all you government, metal lovers really did here was release another in an endless stream of consultation papers again still over the firm proposal to maybe at some indefinite point in a possible future, perhaps mandate the sharing of servicing data Between car makers and independent mechanics, this would, of course, be hilarious in a yes ministerial context if it were fiction and not fat, especially as it makes our fine South Pacific paradise, look like some friggin anti-consumer Banana Republic, and I hate that this issue was a political Hot potato, almost three years ago now you might recall I reported on that then and emphatically nothing has been done in the intervening time. That'S your tax dollars at work. Tar makers are generally and with a couple of notable exceptions, chronically anti-competitive mongrels. They do not want your local mechanic to be able to service their car, even though it's actually your car, because you bought it and even though restricting trade to achieve this is both illegal and anti-competitive. In fact, the a Triple C found about a year ago now that car makers were routinely withholding computerized vehicle servicing data from mechanics outside their own authorized dealer networks, the truthless watchdog, even found that car makers were systematically incentivized to do this. But, of course no action has been taken, and that is also your tax dollars at work. The status quo costs you money, okay, because you either go to the dealer for service or repairs, and you generally pay through the neck for that privilege or you go to your local guy and he hits some roadblock in the form of a withheld information or black Hole and when this happened it costs him time and therefore it costs you money to solve, and sometimes the independent guy even has to take your car to a dealer to get something done, that they could have done in-house if only they were blessed with access to The data - and you are the bunny in the middle footing the bill for this insane double handling. There are, of course, perfectly functional off-the-shelf data sharing schemes. Overseas murica actually has one and they've had one for years, and car makers do not want to share the data in ratata Stan any more than they do here. The only difference is regulation. Retarder, Stanny feds legislated to compel car makers to share the frigging data, there's a federal watchdog and they manage compliance and independent independent repairers just have to log on to an online portal for the servicing information they need. It really is that simple, the independence even pay a fee for access, so this is an earner for the car maker potentially, and they do the same thing in Europe. So it would of course, be child's play to clone this scheme and implement it here in Shitsville. We don't need more high-level, bullshit consultation. If that's the word to determine whether or not this is a fine idea, it simply is, and we don't need to develop a means of sharing the data because one already exists. We just need to do something the Morison government hates they need to act decisively and for a change in favor of consumers. Here in Shitsville and amazingly, you know people still wonder why I call it that a powerful anti consumer lobby group with a grandiose but bullshit name representing car makers, called the Federal Chamber of automotive industries. The FC AI has been busily giving the government a fist-sized State massage on this issue. For several years now, federal chamber assholes actually claim that a voluntary data sharing code is working well, unquote and fuck me. If that isn't God's honest truth, it is in fact working brilliantly for car makers. Unfortunately, it's also royally screwing over you and me, and independent mechanics, and the government is just too stupid to see this even after years of alleged ongoing consultation. If that's the word and of course they do enjoy that this size tickle a spokeswoman for the FCA, I am I've kind of known for years and problematically respect open the bullshit floodgates even further, our focus will be on ensuring the end results provide the most positive Outcomes for Australian consumers, given the highly sophisticated and technical nature of the modern automobile, the FCA, I will bring a strong focus on the safety and well-being of automotive staff, technicians and customers to the discussion. Professional respect notwithstanding. Allow me to retort positive outcomes for consumer safety, and the well-being of consumers is simply not part of the topography of the car industry's filthy, little lobby groups remit. They are funded by the car industry to the government into delivering the optimal outcome for car makers. That'S how this works and that outcome would be not to share the frigging servicing data. The FCA. I is an anti consumer lobby group, which is, of course, why they claim to be the exact opposite and the media just lets them. Have it it's like giving them a free, kick glass? A cherry on the icing of the filthy lobby groups, comments a token truth in the form of a statement that they were quote looking forward to working closely with Treasury. On this topic, I am absolutely certain. They are doing that. I'M sure that some grubby car industry, Barrow pusher, the pink piston of Kingston, is already pulling on an elbow length, latex glove and looking forward to a long reciprocal lunch with appropriate Treasury officials to continue the fine research into simple harmonic motion. That'S been going on to date. Meanwhile, it is you and I and our local mechanics getting bent over while the government remains mentally retarded on who it actually gets paid to represent, and the car industry and his asshole lobby group continues to enjoy exactly what it once eyyy anti-competitive nirvana happy clapping god-bothering Tongue speaking, Prime Minster, Scott Morrison, I would say it's beholden on this fine nation's top political dickhead to display a prominent pair of testes on issues such as this with a right course of action in support of voters is so fundamentally clear. What a pity you appear. Not to be fuckin packing and packing, both of those things not to be facking the fine swinging pair. We demand of you to get important jobs such as this across the line.

Don't try and fix complex automotive issues. What seems like something small may actually be quite complicated, especially in the newer electric cars and also the newer computerized vehicles. Let an auto repair shop diagnose the diagnosing. Give them every detail about what happened and if there were any sounds associated with the problem, but leave the final diagnosis to them.

Warranties can be very important when you need to replace parts.Ask the mechanic about warranties on any parts he is replacing.

Some shops will give you old tires in the place of your original tires. They profit off of your ignorance if they can. Mark your tires before taking your car off. If there is no chalk when your service is complete, you've been taken.

If you are living on a budget, but desperately need to repair your car, think about asking a local vocational school if they have an auto repair class. You can pay much less for service since students do some work on your vehicle while a mechanic looks on.

Don't allow people to sell auto parts that come with a promise of lasting a lifetime. This is often simply a sneaky way for unscrupulous parts dealers to get more money from you. One example is that some vehicles say their transmission fluid.It is true that this fluid lasts much longer than standard transmission fluid, but you will still have to replace it after 80,000 miles.

AAA is a good company to look into when you need auto repair issues. You can often find that AAA membership if you shop around.

Make sure you often check the radiator in your car. Run your engine for several minutes, turn it off then pop the hood.You never want to open the radiator if your car that is running. Check the radiator fluids using a dipstick and remember to dilute coolant with water before putting it in the radiator.

You should keep your car records. You may want these with you when you go to get repairs done; a great place to store them is the glove compartment for easy access. The mechanics who work on your car might need to refer to these records. This can make the problem quicker and more smoothly.

Let them know about any sounds you heard or what problems you have been having, but allow them to diagnose the final issue.

Some untrustworthy shops replace your tired with even older ones. They usually do this to make a quick buck from the premise that you won't notice. Mark your tires with some chalks before you drop your car off.If the marks are gone, you have been victimized.
