Automotive Intimacy = Automotive Knowledge

Automotive Intimacy = Automotive Knowledge

Video
https://youtube.com/watch?v=8ATWQ0nxQg0Automotive Intimacy = Automotive Knowledge. That's an interesting phrase. Lately I've been thinking a lot more about how I repair vehicles and I think that is in large part due to the fact that I'm in the process re-engineeirng a vehicle. They say the best way to get to know something is to take it apart. I agree with that to a point, but the way you need to think to actually BUILD something is different than just taking it apart. In this video I talk about my experiences building the #FairmontProject and what it has taught me, which seems to be more than I anticipated. Intro music by Eric Cook "ETCG1 Intro".

https://youtube.com/watch?v=B1E-l9VZl7sI get asked about this a lot, so I thought I would make this video covering some of the basics of what to look for when choosing an automotive school. It's an important decision for sure. It's a lot of money on a career that you might not be entirely sure about. I think with a little time and some research, you'll be able to find a school that's right for you. No matter what you decide, ETCG is behind you. Good luck. Here's some useful links.

Since ScannerDanner aka Paul Danner, stopped by the shop, I thought I would take the opportunity to have him help me out with this question. It is his namesake after all. The first step in choosing a scanner is to figure out what it is you really NEED in a scanner. Once you've done that, it's a matter of looking at the spec sheet for the tool you're considering and see if it meets those needs. Look for things like ABS capability, even SRS capabilities, manufacturer specific code capabilities, perhaps a 'help' database, and if the tool is 'bidirectional'. Also, for high end scanners, check out their help and training features that may come with your purchase. I know we used a lot of Snap-on scann...
