GM Has Stopped Making Car Parts, You Can’t Fix Your Car Anymore


rev up your engines, some people
might not have thought out with that UAW GM strike it’s
not really affecting the ability to buy one of their new vehicles cuz they had
so many of them lying around cuz they had horrible sales so they’re not
running out of cars to sell you but they are running all the parts if you want
to fix your car they don’t have that big of a back stock of spare parts and now
that they’re on strike and they’re not making any for a bunch of different
vehicles you might want to go and get the original part for your car when it’s
time to get it fixed well you might find out they can’t get their hands on it
because they don’t have any now of course there’s always aftermarket so
it’s not like you have no other alternative to do but if it’s a deal
where it’s a dealer only part and they don’t have it yeah then you’re pretty
much screwed would you’d be trying to find one in a junkyard wait until their
strike goes off and they start making this thing so you know they don’t really
think about that in a long run but that’s one thing that’s really gonna
bite them in the rear end they don’t have spare parts and the people can’t fix
their cars correctly that makes them look bad I mean they were looking bad
enough in the first place over the last decade with the problems that GM has had
with hiding that ignition key switch problem that they’ve had so this is a
negative look any better yeah we’ll see what happens it goes on cuz this is
today and the strike is still going on there as I said earlier I’m assuming
that GM isn’t even gonna care all that much because they’ll probably end up
moving a bunch of their production to China they already have a bunch of
factories there and they’ll probably just say we’ll just move it over there
and then not even worry about having it over here that’s my theory on it cuz I
see how they’re all seem to be doing that which is kind of funny when you
think about it because Toyota and Mazda are just building a new factory I
believe in Alabama together to build car so don’t move over here and then our
companies will move to China, acorn 25 says is it okay to keep pressurized cans
of glass cleaner and other cleaners like battery cleaner a trunk of your car now
you don’t want to keep them inside the car where you sit where the Sun beats
down it makes them hot but the trunks don’t get that hot I’ve had pressurized
stuff glass cleaner right cleaners stuff inside the truck
never had any problems at all it doesn’t get all that hot inside the trunk itself
but as I said in one of my videos you don’t want to have any kind of cleaner
hairspray sitting in the window on a glass inside the sunken here nothing
that can blow up in the trunk no you’re not gonna have any problems, Murano WTF
says hey kind of a doozy I’ve got an 04 Nissan Murano wiper blades won’t turn
off all the lights flashed with every swing of the wiper blades keeps blowing
a fuel pump relay up yes you’re not the original owner I would say perhaps the
vehicle got in the flood and now water is corroding the wiring and the
computers and they’ll do all kinds of crazy stuff because the fuel pump and
the wiper blades really aren’t related and if it’s blowing a fuel pump fuse and
the wipers are doing that crazy stuff my guess would be the car was flooded now
it’s just gonna start falling apart but then again it is a 16 year old Nissan
Murano one of the junkier vehicles ever built in the history of mankind so it
could be that you got a computer flaw or a wiring flaw that’s starting to cross
circuit stuff and do it I would say find a guy like me first took up his
computers and if he sees a bunch of weird stuff then he starts testing and
says I think your computers going out then you decide you want to put that
kind of money in that car you just want to get rid of the stupid thing because
you put a ton of money and electronics on one of those but let’s say you’re not
the original owner and you think maybe it’s better than a flood and a mechanic
looks and says yeah this thing’s been flooded just get rid of it don’t even
bother once the car is flooded all the electronics start breaking down the line
with all those computers and it’s not worth even attempting to fix them, DJ
says I got an 06 buick LaCrosse with 93 thousand miles sometimes I take off
it shifts from first to second it feels like it skips or bounces but it doesn’t slam
it doesn’t happen any other gear well odds are your transmission is wearing out
typical on a Buick that’s about as long as they’re gonna last pray that it’s
something like one of the solenoids the shift song I was going bad and have it
replaced you might get lucky and it could be a shift solenoid but it takes a
professional mechanic with a bi-directional stand tool they can turn
things on and off and test and see what happens when he turns a mind start there
and if it’s a song great I’d put a new solenoid in it but if not transmissions
wear it out and on that thing the money it costs to rebuild those things you
might just live with it as long as it goes down the road
I’ve had customers driving years that way and they still weren’t good enough
that they didn’t care they didn’t want to spend a ton rebuilding the
transmission on an older try like that mmm chicken says
Scotty I got an 03 Chrysler intrepid v6 2.7 liter hundred six thousand
kilometers how much time do you reckon little a still runs perfectly all right
I’m assuming you’re in Canada and kilometers doesn’t chop it’s uh v6 2.7
liter is one of the worst engines they ever make but you only got what like
54,000 miles or something on it cuz you said kilometers because the last a while
I mean if the engine ever starts their problems is the transmission said get
rid of the stupid thing but you got it it’s worth nothing nobody’s gonna give
you much for a 17-year old intrepid so keep driving it if you baby it keep
doing whatever you’ve been doing it keep your fingers crossed
cuz you never know I never advised anybody to buy one house but you already
own it with that low mileage it’s going last quite some time here in the United
States people drive a lot more if that was a 17 year old one here and probably
had 190,000 miles or it would already be in a junkyard because somebody would
have got rid of it when the engine went huh so just take care of it who know how long
it’s gonna last, so if you never want to miss
