I hate this job, but I saw yesterday a Youtube video giving step by step instructions, and made it seem a whole lot easier. I found this informative, and well done. Hope you enjoy.

Good video!
After the first couple minutes it is fast paced, not like some guys that drone on repetitiously

No, just home done youtubes in general - some people just love to hear themselves talk about nothing.
This one is fast paced and he does a good job of managing his cadence - it is not a boring video to watch.
As well, it is informative - I think most of us worry about electrical issues.

Mind you, with the SSR, the trick is to not let the engine bay get dirty in the first place.

I agree, I thought I'd watch a couple minutes just to see what it covered but watched the whole thing.
He covered all the concerns I would have about how to work around the electrics/electronics.

Yes, dust the mantel/trophy case more often. :shades:

Wonderful Thanks

One of the overlooked aspects of prepping a car for sale by a owner is the engine compartment. :grin2: You can improve the odds of a quick sale by taking the time to do this. Gives the impression of a well maintained car. GREAT video THANKS

Thanks for posting.

ChrisFix YouTube videos are generally pretty good stuff. No nonsense with clear explanations/instructions. I’ve watched quite a few over the years. His video on brake bleeding video convinced me to make my own one person bleeder vs. fighting with leaking power bleeders.

You don't need to be a trophy hunter to take pride and show your SSR some love.
I wipe down Kate's engine bay "almost" every time she is washed.
Even though she is a fair-weather 3 or 4 times a week driver her engine bay is always close to showroom clean

I would rather take a few minutes every time rather than be embarrassed to raise the hood.
I don't care what vehicle, letting an engine bay get to look like the subjects of the video is a negligent owner.

I watched this video because I have to deal with a messy engine bay in an old S10 I recently bought for winter driving and property maintenance.
It might only be a $1000 truck but it deserved better than what previous owners have shown it.

I don't need any engine bay assistance but you Such a Good Waxer!! :thumbs
I forget where you left off though - start fresh is the only logical solution I see

darbysan I found the video to be very helpful. Of course I'm only 77 so I have a longer attention span than my "older" Fanatic Friends. It's that time of year for me to do the job on Slick again and I appreciated the tips. Thanks for posting the video!
