About ETCG1

ETCG1 checker Logo Broken small 2018 copyI started the ETCG1 channel about a year or so after starting the EricTheCarGuy channel.  I did this for a couple of reasons.  The first is that I needed a place where I could post 'non-repair' videos that related to EricTheCarGuy, it became apparent early on that my audience on EricTheCarGuy were interested in repair videos only so to accommodate them and fill the need for video topics outside of repair ETCG1 was born.  The second reason is that it became apparent that many viewers had questions about becoming professional technicians and they wanted to learn what it was like to work in the field, they also seemed interested in my opinions and experiences that developed while working as a technician.  ETCG1 has become something of a 'soapbox' for me to share these thoughts and ideas and it gives me the opportunity to respond to some of the questions I get about the auto repair industry.  ETCG1 is also a place where you can learn a little more about what it is to be and work as EricTheCarGuy, best job in the world if you asked me.  Why not watch a few videos and let me know what YOU think?

Lately I've been doing a lot of work on my 1993 Acura Vigor. Since it was only made for 3 years back in the early 90's,I'm finding parts are hard to get hold of, and when I can get hold of them, they are VERY expensive. Since it's a 'rare' car that is out of production, even the aftermarket isn't making parts for it anymore.

Time management is something we deal with in every day life. It also effects our work and our work habits. This is especially true for auto repair technicians where time is often directly equated to their pay checks.

"Is List Pricing On Parts Fair?" comes from the suggestion box over at EricTheCarGuy.com. The post comes from 'adrianfig' and he writes, "Just throwing an interesting topic that I think would make a good ETCG1 video. Ever since I started working at an auto parts store I have been learning about "list" prices.

This topic comes up from time to time and since my 1993 Acura Vigor is one of those vehicles that seemed to sit for a long time, I thought it made a good opportunity to make a video on the subject.

Non Serviceable Components is a topic was brought up over in the suggestion box by barneyb. It seems that more and more vehicles are becoming less and less serviceable. I see this trend continuing as vehicles develop. In this video I talk about my thoughts on the topic and where I think things are going in the future.
