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 See These Cars Everywhere Now

Does this happen to you? You get a new vehicle, well, new to you, and once you start driving it, then you start to see them everywhere. This happened to me after I got the Mini. It's not the first time either. I've gotten other vehicles in the past and had the same phenomenon happen afterward.

Has this ever happened to you? If so, I'd love to hear about it.

Hydrostatic Lock the Silent Killer

I've seen this a lot in my career. An engine experiences hydrostatic lock. The fluid is removed from the cylinder and everything seems fine. Some time later, the engine fails. That's exactly what I believe happened to my Fairmont engine as I discuss in this video.

I Hate Social Media

Perhaps “hate” is too strong a word. Let’s just say I’m not into it and we used “hate” to get you to click on the video.
