Precious Automotive Fluids, and how to check them
In this ETCG episode we will be going over the basics of checking fluids. I know this isn't a stellar topic but it is useful information in my book. So many automotive systems are dependent on proper fluid levels. As always you can post a text or video response to this video if you have questions or visit me at
The clip at the beginning of this video is from "Dr. Strangelove", one of my favorites. It is not used as a motive for profit but instead for educational purposes under fair use.

This is a quick tip response to my disc brake video. A very observant viewer mentioned this important fact that I forgot to put into the original video so I will correct that here. Wheel torque probably accounts for at least some percentage of persistent brake vibrations.
Thanks to BigBlockMustang for pointing this out, and thank you for watching. I've recently gotten to the 100 subscriber mark and hope to do something special for you in the not to distant future. If you have any show ideas please post a response to this video or send me a PM with your questions.
Something I found recently found that might be of help is this torque chart for different manufacturers.
