I wanted to create a list of "how to's" by [MENTION=229411]makuloco2000[/MENTION]. He does some great videos on common repairs. He has a Youtube channel that you can subscribe to. If you watch his video's take a look at some of the ads so he gets credit for the work he's done.

Wow thanks for this post and getting the word out. I may not have much time for the boards but I do now have many videos up (over 300) explaining how to fix some of the most common issues you guys are likely to run into.

I want to thank you for your videos. I know you are aware of how many views you get but hope you realize the impact you have made on those who watch. Your style is exactly what someone like me needs to have the confidence to tackle stuff that we normally wouldn't. I have started doing my own work on my Explorer, F150, and now a Jaguar because you demonstrate that it can be done. I never had done more than oil changes but have now changed struts, changed control arms, rotors, calipers, and pads ; sway end links ; spark plugs......etc... I am saving money but also having a great time doing my own work. Thank you very very much.

Agreed. I wasn't going to do the front wheel bearing hubs, but after watching the videos and reading up on it, I just did it myself. Great job on the videos!
