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?

Shop etiquette is different depending on where you're working. Some shops are pretty laid back, others not so much. The idea is to recognize your place and how you fit in.

I recently posted a question about your worst and best brand experiences on my social networks. I got some pretty interesting answers. I think brand loyalty is something the manufacturers strive for with their vehicles. Some are successful, some, not so much.

I came up with this topic on the way to the shop one day. I'm not sure what triggered it, but I think it's an important topic. The art of listening is something that I think takes time to develop.

As something of a follow up to "Know When To Call it a Day" I made this video. Sometimes you're not 'giving up' so much as walking a way to take a little break. Lets face it, auto repair can be stressful sometimes.

There are times when you need to call it a day. Knowing when that is can be difficult since on the one hand you don't want to give up. On the other hand you might be burning a hole in your pocket and wasting your time.
