  • Please help. I have a Mazda3 which i love. When it rains, i get a water buildup in the driverside door. U can hear it when u open the door or drive until i guess it drains out or evaporates. Thats the one keyless lock that doesnt work. Never heard of this problem.

  • Way do you dont upload videos anymore

  • 11:33 “lightly tap it in”

  • Hi Chris, hope you’re doing well! Is fascinated in your videos and impressed on your cars knowledge pretty much in everything. I’m wondering if you can do a video on EVAP system. I do have a 2010 Jeep srt8 grand Cherokee with engine light on due to “small leak” of EVAP, and no one could identify where the leak is. Stay safe and keep the good work.

  • i hope you’ll respond but i’m just getting interested in buying my first car and i found a bmw i8 on ebay for $4000. I just want to know if that sounds reasonable at all because that is extremely cheap for an i8 but it also says that it’s a new car. it is in the uk and i’m in california though. but if it is a good car it would be an amazing deal so i just don’t want to skip it if it could be legit and i’m new to this so i’m not sure if it could even be legit.

  • hello chrizfix may b u could help me i have a 09 chevy malibu hybrid 2.4L ive been loocking everywhere for a alternator replacement couldnt find the right one but i did find one that is very similar in every way the only difference is on my old alternator it says 13.5V and on this new alternator is says 12V can i use this one i wouldnt even care if the hybrid features stop working as long as i can start my car?

  • Chirsfix. Seires idea: build a dirt track racecar. I think you’ll perfect in it because you seem to know lots about cars.

  • Hey Chris, I recently bought my first car, a 2009 Hyundai Elantra. It was used, but looks really clean under the hood. It has a problem with a sticky gas petal though, and was wondering if you knew any reason for this? Thanks, keep up the good work!
