Thanks again to Mobil 1 motor oil for sponsoring last week's video and hosting us at their Engine Test Center - since we like their products, we've included them in this episode too. Visit AutoZone to find the right high-quality Mobil 1 synthetic oil for you: bit.ly/38EvoLT
Great so you got your first project car, now it’s time to make sure that it is ready for some mods! Before we throw any new bits at our Mazda Miata we want to make sure that it is in good running condition and healthy. So, we will do some basic but very necessary maintenance on our project car and you should do the same. We will talk about and show you how to DIY change your engine oil, coolant, power steering fluid, diff fluid, brake fluid, and transmission fluid. We’ll also cover air filters, fuel filter, belts, and spark plugs. Even if you don’t have a project car these are all routine basic things that you can do yourself to keep your car running for a long time and also save some money!
Money Pit goes hands-on in the garage with Zach Jobe as he shows you the fundamental principles of how cars work, and how to apply your DIY knowledge to your very own project car --all using our very own 1994 Mazda Miata.

  • My only quarrel is at 11:16 he discusses the dry boiling point of the brake fluid. You really should be addressing the wet boiling point as it'll designate the scenario of the brake fluid after it's been used for a portion of its lifetime. As the brake fluid is used water gets in there and that's what the wet boiling point indicates.

  • I noticed a big difference between my cobalt’s power steering pump and my grand caravan’s power steering pump. At full lock my cobalt doesn’t make a noise but if I put my van at full lock it hissing for about 2 seconds and then goes away. I replaced the serpentine belt on the van but it still hisses. Never really cared since the wheel doesn’t get tight and the fluid system doesn’t leak but I wounded what the difference is.

  • When I checked the oil, one time, and noticed that the dip stick was entirely dry, I got a little worried. So, I filled up 1L of oil and waited about 15 minutes before checking it again. Still dry. So I filled it up with 1 more liter and waited 15 minutes. Now there was a small speck on the tip of the dip stick, so I filled it up with 1 more liter and waited 30 minutes this time. Right on. It was just below max. 3L of oil. I had a bunch of it laying around, bot 5w-40 and 10w-40, and because it's a 19 year old Volvo, it won't be too sensitive if it's not the correct oil.

  • If you have water in your brake system, you can pump multiple times to build up pressure, and be able to actually use the brakes. Isn’t that correct? So you should get the air out, but you are t completely fucked, right?

  • Make sure to replace the crush washers on your fluid plugs if your car has them. They're not designed to be reused (crushed after torque is applied) and will cause leaks if not replaced. They're so cheap. Just do it.

  • A couple pretty important side notes, from someone that managed a lube shop for a few years. Every motor, and variant has its own oil plug torque spec, based on the material the pan is made of. Also, and less important, a quarter to a half turn is usually fine, but the filter also has a torque spec as well. And always use your new oil, to lubricate the new rubber. Never use the old oil. Ever.

  • It should be important to note and inform the home gamers that you want to start at the furthest corner from your brake cylinder when bleeding your brakes or replacing the fluid. It's also important to make sure that you drain all the old fluid and ensure the bleed line is clear so you know when you have fresh fluid coming out. I've done a bunch of brakes as a mechanic and had access to an awesome pressurized system that did all the pumping and draining for me. I could change fluid or fill a dry system in a matter of about 15 minutes when taking my time and being sure that I had all the bleed valves prepped to bleed or loosened a little so I wasnt struggling to loosen them enough to bleed but not too much to the point that the fluid rushed out under pressure.

  • Spark plugs! Oowee you need to not advise people on spark plugs that way. 89-93 NA miatas require copper plugs. If you install any other spark plug beside what is recommended, you will get a misfire, slow acceleration and poor gas mileage. 94+ you can use platinum plugs Iridium plugs are for turbo or supercharged applications. DO NOT install iridium in your NA engine (unless your compression ratio is close to 13:1) That is all I wanted to say. Have a great day

  • 1 man break bleed trick. 1 extensive length of 3/8 clear tubing and a couple squeezy clamps or clothes pins. Attached tubing to bleeder valve and clamp the other side to the brake fluid reservoir. If you're using a closed end wrench, be sure to put it on the bleeder valve before attaching the hose. Now loosen the bleeder valve and pump your brakes. Now just watch the line until there's no more air in it well also checking the reservoir to keep it topped off. Close bleeder valve and move to next brake cylinder. As long as the hose in the reservoir is kept below fluid level, it will keep a vacuum and you will not dump brake fluid after removing the hose from the bleeder valve. This is also useful to do a brake flush to clear out any old brake fluid from the lines.
