    I love your videos great

  • malaka1212 says:

    That’s some acute echo in your shop. If you banged a woman in that shop, you’d still be hearing the screaming orgasm minutes after you put your drawers back on while asking her name…

  • mrgoodbar216 says:

    Its a waste of time fixing those fucked over rebuilt dodges! Cheaper to buy a new one.

  • tdhmale007 says:

    yeah, I noticed that one too, and the second time it looked like he put it back into second gear when it was already in second gear. First time was without handbrake, second time was with. But I still don’t understand.

  • rx7smakemejizz says:

    Like Eric said, check and see if you have a hydraulic or cable operated clutch. If its cable, see if you can adjust it. If its hydraulic, I would start looking at the clutch itself. I wouldnt drive it too much longer, if you keep grinding, youre going to wear down those gears and youll start looking at a new transmission in the long run. If you have to replace a pressure plate, you might as well replace the entire clutch assembly.

  • rx7smakemejizz says:

    The second time he gave it a tad bit more gas.

  • nowzor says:

    i have always been told to use the manufactures fluid so in your case honda manual trans mission fluid

  • JFD492 says:

    hey eric, how many miles were on this clutch?

  • lowwdoggy says:

    indeed, but eric is a much more earnest and better person overall so forget clooney. clooney should remind you of eric the carguy.

  • CZARKing says:

    I don’t get it. He tested the clutch in 2 second gear twice. And the second time it worked. What did he do differently ?

  • Robert Williams says:

    in a 92 civic what would you use as manual tranny fluid?

  • ivan fuentes says:

    i cant chose any gears on my car man. do u know what the problem may be is it the clutch or the pressure plate. and when i put in reverse it grinds and it goes in. but i have to push it hard for it to go in..

  • airizonaforu says:

    Is it belevable that im the only obe at my school that drives stick were im from its like an antitheft system

  • Ralph Lee says:

    1:17 Man, you remind me of George Clooney. Awesome.

  • Alex M says:

    I know it seems sort of weird, my parents always owned automatics since I was alive and the first thing I get is a manual, I think younger people and people who care about fuel mileage have manuals.

  • SwampBoyJ says:

    are u stupid? like everyone i know has a 5 speed O.o?

  • RFKFANTS67 says:

    Does anyone know what the average kilometers are before clutch replacement is necessary on a 93 GMC SIERRA ?

  • palmerjames29 says:

    This man is tearing shit up fjsksisjdjzbd

  • playstation2bigs says:

    ((( A LITTLE IS HOT SEX BUT STILL FEEL )))

  • jamerican347 says:

    I drive a 5-speed 96 Maxima and I’m in the US. Yes, people like us do exist in the US.

  • SergSkate661 says:

    I drive the same car. I had to get a new clutch kit and used tranny. Now im afraid for a valve seat to drop. Do you know how I could prevent this or hold it off?

  • Bigbubba2132 says:

    It may need a gasket but you have 2. also if it has a blown head gasket your gonna need new heads and some other things need to be adjusted/repaired plus they will have to clean out the water from your oil. $500 may turn into $1000-$2000. for that you can buy a decent Impala thats newer and 1/2 the miles. good luck.

  • Turkamel says:

    a manual car in north america??? what kind of parallel universe is this?

  • ImFlyLikeRedBulll says:

    pause at 44 seclooks like he his stoned

  • mikez565 says:

    “I’m too big for this little jap car” HAHAHAHA!

  • Adrian F. Long says:

    Eric, you have a lot of steel left on those headrests… Take the grinder and make a new notch.

  • xbloodzz says:

    i wonder how many people actually flung their heads back in their computer seats

  • Thecarguy1254 says:

    That is another reason I LOVE the seats in my 4runner. The headrests adjust up/down and forward/backwards. So those seats have excellent lumbar support, excellent thigh support, the cloth is very durable, the headrests are perfect, the side bolsters are amazing (like something you would expect to see in a Supra) and they are superbly comfortable. Who knew such amazing seats were in a 1988 Toyota 4runner sr5! lol

  • EricTheCarGuy says:

    I’m glad they do, thanks for the comment.

  • EricTheCarGuy says:

    Cool. I’m just learning all kinds of stuff today thanks.

  • MrRichierich1990 says:

    that means how are you in slovak.

  • EricTheCarGuy says:

    @3233656364 thank you.

  • jfranklin19919 says:

    yea i have i never really paid attention to the seats though i want an 89 dx

  • Gravecreper says:

    88 DX mine adjust, have you seen ones that old? its more rare i have yet to find one with the same trim as mine

  • jfranklin19919 says:

    what year cause 92-95 dont umless they have gsr seats

  • chillincruisin says:

    damn lol i’d better keep my eyes open, im 6’4” as well and drive a 96 teg.

  • EricTheCarGuy says:

    Interesting theory, good luck with your study. I love driving Mini’s especially the turbo versions.

  • Gravecreper says:

    i already own one and my headrests do adjust on mine, probly varies apon year

  • Gravecreper says:

    i have a strange fascination with small cars also specially ones i dont have to sqeeze into. Always wanted to drive a mini copper just to see if i could fit. about the compensation i was actually told by a girl thats majoring in psychology at my college that big trucks can be a compensation for something men are self conscious about, and maybe its reverse for big men in small cars. *pun intended

  • jfranklin19919 says:

    if your getting a civic hatch the headrest dosen’t addjust if thats what your talking about by hatch

  • EricTheCarGuy says:

    The Integra wasn’t hurt too badly really, a sore neck was the worst that came of it really. It is true that little cars are not made for big people but for some reason I like driving little cars. Maybe I’m trying to compensate for something.

  • Gravecreper says:

    well doesnt that suck i hope your intergras alright, ill think about that when i get in my hatch cuz im 6’4 in a seemingly small car thanks eric the car guy

  • EricTheCarGuy says:

    Thank you Polish guy from Canada!

  • BigHouseOfBooty says:

    awesome video, and what a neat surprise with the intro, all the best, a polish guy from Canada.

  • EricTheCarGuy says:

    Thanks for that, I’m surprised at all the responses for the Polish intro, I think it’s cool. Sorry to hear about your accidents but you do have to watch out for the idiots especially if they are behind you.

  • EricTheCarGuy says:

    They didn’t build cars with safety in mind back then but the cars were cool and had real personality unlike most things out there today.

  • EricTheCarGuy says:

    @crombieposterboy It all worked out. I don’t have the ability to create specific videos at will, I have to wait for a particular car to come in with a particular problem to fill most requests so it may be some time before I make the video your looking for sorry.

  • EricTheCarGuy says:

    Well I wasn’t ETCG back then and it didn’t really come up all that often but I did enjoy the label, best part of the job really.

  • Michiganborn1969 says:

    @EricTheCarGuy
    Omg that’s funny & I bet your coworkers at the dealer also had a good time with it such as Mr. 69 or EricThe69Guy lmao.
