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?

I think we've all got things in our tool boxes that have been there for a while and we're not using. Tool box real estate is at a premium in most cases. Especially when we get new tools. I recently got a new set of screwdrivers and pliers and needed space to put them. In order to make that space, I had to take out some of the old stuff that I just wasn't using anymore.

Auto repair is not just a boys game, girls can play too. In fact, these days more than ever it's become accepted that women are just as capable as men when it comes to doing repair work. In fact I've known a few female technicians in my day that could defiantly hold their own.

After working as a technician for a while I think you develop a sense for pattern failures. A vehicle comes in with a problem you've seen before, and you begin to assume what's wrong. This can save you time, sometimes. Other times, it can really set you back.

Paul Danner aka ScannerDanner came out to shoot some videos with me a few weeks back. In addition to the videos we shot, we ended up with a ton of outtakes. In some ways I think these are as good if not better than the serious videos we did.

My dad recently turned 66 and it got me to thinking about retirement. I posted the question to my social networks last week and got some interesting responses. Many of you feel you may never retire. Honestly, I feel I might be part of that group myself.
