Some people just shouldn't own a diesel....

Saw these video's on youtube.
Please tell me someone knows who these jacka--es are so they can save that poor truck before it's too late....if it isn't already.




Just thought I'd share.

First video - "It needs a glow plug relay." BUT....kept spraying ether in there. Why not wait till you can replace the GPR?

Second video - "Maybe all the cylinders haven't lit yet?" Ya think?? It sounds like it's only running on half. I hope he was smart enough to check the UVCHs.

What's the address - I want THAT guy working on my truck!!

Ether and duct tape should fix any cold start issue....Ether to get it started and duct tape to fix the piston/valve once you crack it.
Favorite quote from the series has got to be "Because see diesel has to have some sort of, um, heat to light 'em you know?"
Amazing how much heat 17.5:1 compression will make. I think that's the least of this guys worries.

I have seen a lot of his videos. Honestly can't stand his voice. In one of the comments someone asked why his name was RedneckMan454 because he liked Fords and 454 was a GM engine and he replied that 454 was the cubic inches of a 7.3

So now we know he can't read or add. 7.3 is a 444cid.
He needs to go back to school or find another kind of work to get into.

Well actually he can't multiply... (And hopefully he won't "multiply", but I digress....)

But he plugged in the block heater for "a minute or so"!

Oh, and then "Hold 'er a-boat half throttle!" Uhhhm, does the go-pedal do ANYTHING while cranking?

Even with a bad GPR, all that effing around, and they could have just jumpered the relay for 20 seconds or so.

What's in the water up there, eh?
