2019 Denali Ultimate CQuartz UK 3.0

I purchased a brand new 2019 GMC Denali Ultimate and it's time to paint correct it and put on some ceramic protection! I also used CarPro Iron X to decontaminate it and topped the whole thing off with CarPro Reload. I'm loving the new truck so far and it's a huge upgrade form the F250 that had constant issues. The 6.0 did turn out to be a "power joke", lets hope the Denali proves to be a stable beast!


2007 F250 New Wheels, Speedo Correction & Seat Belt Chime Defeat

The old power joke is now officially known as "King Tut" and today it got a set of new shoes. I stopped by the shop and picked up a set of 2019 F250 wheels with Michelin AT/2 tires. This means they're now 1" over the original size and I need to re-write the "As-Built" data. I'm going to use Ford IDS dealer software to perform the reprogramming work to correct the speedometer.


6.0L Power Stroke Injector Replacement

The problems experienced by my 6.0L Power Joke super duty have escalated and it's time to perform the needed repairs. Before we get started we'll also check out Adam's Polishes Mystery Box and see what kind of goodies I got inside. Then back to the truck I diagnosed a bad #1 cylinder HEUI injector. I'll tear the valve cover off and the oil rail. You'll be able to see what it's like to service this six liter rube goldberg contraption.


Power Stroke or Power Joke? Injector Issues & Testing

I've been having an issue with what I suspect is a sticking injector in my PowerJoke 6.0L turbo diesel V8. This is the engine the 2007 F250 SD. It's giving me a rough idle while warming up. Seems fine while driving, but throws a P0263 Cylinder 1 Injector Circuit Contribution / Balance fault. There is no CEL but the code is there and pending.


S14 240SX Transmission Fluid Change

Today we're going to change the transmission oil in my 1996 Nissan 240SX SE with the five speed manual transmission. This is a really simple job. Anyone can swap S14 or S13 transmission fluid on jack stands or with a lift and just a few basic tools and a pump.

S14 240SX Oil Change

Today I performed the first oil change on my recently purchased 1996 Nissan 240SX. This is the one with just 16k miles on it, not sure how many oil changes its ever had. The filter selection was OEM and for oil I went with some nice Mobil 1 10w30. It's a super easy job that anyone could do in the drive way or on jack stands. Very very easy!

Turbo E36 M3 Cooling System Rebuild

My friend Sean's M3 also needed a little love when it comes to the cooling system. Sean wants to pick the car up and take it home. Our plan was to replace the radiator with a Mishimoto Z3M three core unit and a Spal 16" fan. However we ran into a few quirks. We also replaced the thermostat and thermostat housing. We upgraded the water pump to a Stewart high flow unit to improve performance. We also used some new billet radiator stays and a European radiator cover. To cap things off we threw in a Radium Engineering billet expansion tank.

BMW M3 E36 - Brake Rebuild

As you might recall my friend Sean dropped off his E36 M3 at my house the other day. We spent some time getting his brakes rebuilt which was a pretty significant project. He got them powder coated and they look absolutely amazing.

S14 240SX Valve Cover Gasket Replacement

As we saw in my prior 240SX video, the valve cover gasket is leaking on the 1996 16k mile 240SX that I picked up recently. This is not a big problem and an easy one to DIY fix yourself in the garage. It takes just a little patience and effort. These gaskets tend to fail from age and miles. I also show off my ultrasonic cleaner.


Texas Hill Country Special

We take Dmitry's Garage on the road with my friend Sanjin and explore the Texas Hill Country. My buddy brought along his recently purchased Jeep and I took my F250. This wasn't much of an off-roading adventure, but really more a fun time exploring the county roads of Texas. We had a great AirBNB rental on a ranch.
