Here’s Why Corvettes Suck

rev up your engines today I’m gonna show
you how to fix a car that stalls out intermittently every once in a while not
a case of this Corvette it’ll start up and run okay now a sudden it just stalls
out when it’s idling but it does have the service engine soon light which
serves as a check engine light and this so we’re gonna scan it so we plug the
out scan tool in now let’s see what it says it says PO335 crankshaft position
sensor circuit malfunction now that does make logical sense our stalling because
the crankshaft position sensor here it is in a case of this Corvette it
measures the flywheel spinning around to tell the computer what position the
crankshaft is named and if it loses data it can shut the car off because it
doesn’t know what’s going on it doesn’t send the pulses so the car doesn’t run
now these sensors the crankshaft position sensors I’m GM products they go
out all the time so we’re gonna replace it and hope that that’s the only thing
that’s wrong that it doesn’t have a wiring fault or computer failure or even
worse the reluctor on the flywheel has fallen off and there’s no longer
standing a signal here we would have to pull the transmission off the car in
order to fix it so let’s hope it’s just the stupid sensor no the hi I’m all over
the place but if you look it up on it’s Corvette got a bottle in the car but you
have to remove the starter to get to it I know they’re brilliant team design now
since we have to remove the starter first we’re gonna disconnect the battery
turn so we don’t short anything out well just on voltage pull it out away so it
can’t touch the positive terminal and make up short somewhere now the circuits open so there’s no power now jack it up in the air so we get the starter and
then the case of this Corvette we certainly want to use a jack stand there
low to the ground and if something happened it fell down it would squash you
like a pancake go under it go and even though I started with this mat I got a bigger one now cuz I can slide it on to a crawl under without
getting dirty and as we slide under way lock there’s the starter it’s got two
bolts on it that we take off we take off take off the inside one first because
that’s often kind of an away so you want to get the harder one to get off first
and there goes one and there goes the second one it’s a thirteen millimeter
socket if you’re curious long threads and out it comes my question all
there’s not enough room to get it off but not taking everything off so now we
gotta take off the power line up here and we gotta take that off ah then once
you get all those stupid wires off going that much working room come up enough
what wouldn’t you know GM makes them like right up the casting mark on the
engine block is in the way so you can’t get the star to run off the only way
you’re gonna be able to get the starter off is by pulling the catalytic
converter and the exhaust system off so I’m not gonna do that instead if you
look way inside there you can see that wire with a green end on it that is
for the sensor I’m just going to reach in there with my hand and unplug it and
I bolt it and put the new sensor in without actually removing the starter
because I don’t feel like taking half the car apart because GM engineers have
their fingers so far up their rear ends they’re coming out of their mouths no I
can’t tell them this because I can’t even see it I’m putting my hand in there
blind I can’t see what’s going on in there but I’m using one of these ten
millimeter gear wrenches with the ratchet and head so I can get in an angle to
get to ten millimeter bolt off so I can on both the bolt it holds a sensor in
place here’s a new sensor itself when it’s bolted in there’s a ball pulled in
and where I’m bolting that then we got to get this out and as you can see
there’s a seal it always gets stuck so we got to pry that out after we on
bolted and here’s a giant screwdriver pry bar I’m going to use of that once we
on bolt there’s the old sensor popped out and as you can see our prayer it’s
really hard to get to focus it in because there’s not much working room
there it is there’s a new sensor it’s popped back into the hole we just have
to put the bolt in zoom out you can see it’s at a really horrendous place to get
to as you can see here the only way you can get it in with this shiny little
gear wrench barely anybody can get your hands in there so I can’t film it
but it gets it nice and tight just make sure you have one of these
gear register go in there here it is after it’s done its job it can get in
just about any position with a swiveling head then of course as you can see here
you got to make sure you got the electrical connections snap back in
we’re getting focused there it is now it’s plugged into the side so there’s a
sensor there’s the plug and it can work then we got to put the wires on here and
put the bolt on to hold the cables on and then of course we have two snaps
other way around too and of course we got to put the two bolts back on hold
the starter in place through my hand then use the wrench put the battery
terminal back on get it nice and tight we don’t want to come off that’s nice
and tight but we’re not gonna jack it down just yet cuz hey maybe something’s
loose are not working we’re gonna try it while topping here before we jack it
down so that we can jack it down slowly and take it for a road test and away we
go it’s cold sideways got a lot of power
down so the next time your car randomly dies pray that it’s as easy as a fix of
this one of just replacing the crankshaft position sensor because now
you know how it’s done and in most cases they’re not as big of a pain in the butt
to do as this corvette is come on stupid thing, so if you never
want to miss another one of my new car repair videos, remember to ring that Bell

    'Stick it out of the way behind the starter motor. It's not going to go wrong, is it..'

  3. Gord235 November 19, 2019 at 11:37 pm

    Scotty is willing to go where no man has gone before.

  4. 6 6 November 19, 2019 at 11:48 pm

    The bottom of the corvette is not flat. It would squash you like a waffle.

  5. 6 6 November 19, 2019 at 11:49 pm

    You could not be more wrong about the engineers. They've all been fired and marketing departments do all the product design now.

  6. FoxhoundVnzla November 19, 2019 at 11:56 pm

    damn i had the same problem and error in my impala ls 2000, and it ended being the MAF O.o

  7. Ultimate Warrior November 20, 2019 at 12:03 am

    I was wrong about Corvettes
    3 days later, heres why Corvettes suck lol

  8. Robert Holmes November 20, 2019 at 12:13 am

    GM – Generic Motors

  9. kangaroo chico November 20, 2019 at 12:18 am

    kia sorento. 8 hour job to replace the cps. The front end of the engine has to come off. Don't complain about GM!

  10. trent ryan November 20, 2019 at 12:18 am

    Had the same problem with my 93 cougar a few years back but the sensor was in the distributor, which required removing and completely disassembling the distributor to replace the bad sensor, this is on a ford 302 5.0

  11. Bossman November 20, 2019 at 12:21 am

    Go to regular mechanic probably would charge 1000 dollars for that

  12. Guitars, Cars, and other man stuff November 20, 2019 at 12:25 am

    Make sure the sensor is all the way in. The bolt WILL NOT pull the sensor in. Cant tell you how many no starts ive fixed because people did their own and didnt seat the sensor fully.

  13. Malachi Stephenson November 20, 2019 at 12:26 am

    Corvettes do suck!
    Mustangs are better

  14. chief tp November 20, 2019 at 12:59 am

    isn't this the same car you recommended people buy 4 days ago?

  15. Mike Ross November 20, 2019 at 1:00 am

    My neighbor's 2007 corvette breaks something almost every month. I unfortunetly always help him fix it.

  16. xdrfox November 20, 2019 at 1:03 am

    why all the video cuts, I could use learning a few new words! LOL

  19. Curtis J November 20, 2019 at 1:35 am

    Scotty read how people was saying how he was praising General Motors so he had to double back for another video.

  20. Bracsim 1 November 20, 2019 at 1:47 am

    Nice Corvette, even without an engine in it still better than any Japanese crap.

  21. Mark Kalfahs November 20, 2019 at 1:48 am

    ….just wondering, could Scotty be ZZ Top's, "Manic Mechanic"?….

  22. JCsaves November 20, 2019 at 1:50 am

    You did it! 👍

  23. Kory Denman November 20, 2019 at 2:04 am

    We get it scotty, you like fords. To be honest with you. The ls engine is one of the best v8s ever made. Simple easy to maintain and reliable and affordable. You made the crank shaft positioning sensor look like the most difficult thing to replace on the entire engine. People that actually listen to. Your comments are gullible

  24. tarwash November 20, 2019 at 2:05 am

    2:23– thirteen millimeter? vettes aren't made in the USA any more? doesn't surprise me.

  25. Tom Cannone November 20, 2019 at 2:07 am

    Why is that when Ant, does it on Wheeler Dealers he makes it sooo easy. But I guess he don't wear sunglasses and he does it in a proper garage. I'll bet if he pulled an engine out of a celica he would be singing its phrases while pulling the crankshaft. Good going Scotty…..

  26. JDM heart November 20, 2019 at 2:12 am

    Scotty please I want to see you flexing your driving skills one day. 🤞🤞🙏

  27. Jose Sanchez November 20, 2019 at 2:25 am

    I had this same issue on a 2014 Kia Rio no computer could find what it was, so I traded it for a 2020 corolla, and later found out about this piece and that many Kia owners had the same issue.

  28. ferios19801 November 20, 2019 at 2:26 am

  29. Octivian Castle November 20, 2019 at 2:32 am

    who wants more behind the scenes in his videos

  30. c a November 20, 2019 at 2:34 am

    But let me guess, Scotty – you will charge "book time" even though the book says that you must take off the starter and exhaust…charging for work that you didn't do.

  31. biggysground November 20, 2019 at 2:41 am

    You missed a step Scotty, crank sensor relearn. Ooops that's right, those cheap scanners don't do that function.

  32. 90steed November 20, 2019 at 2:47 am

    “It’s going sideways!” 🤣

  36. A.J. November 20, 2019 at 3:24 am

    Man I had that problem with my 05 Xterra but something else had to be going wrong because it would work for like 3months then the same code pop up change the sensor, repeat 3months later. I miss the Suv but thank god its gone.

  37. pentonhusqvarna November 20, 2019 at 3:25 am

    We are brethren Scotty! I hate GM as much or more than you!

  38. holychitlingravy November 20, 2019 at 3:32 am

    Well, now I know why Scotty doesn't listen to music when he's working, besides needing to concentrate. He's also singing to himself to keep from using bad language. It was pretty easy to spot how irate GM had made him, and I have to say I agree it was completely bullheaded idea to put that sensor in like that.

  39. Sergio Gonzalez November 20, 2019 at 3:40 am

    i want more bloopers/behind the scene action …scotty kilmer raw

  40. Charles Bolin November 20, 2019 at 3:42 am

    Is that a Tekton quick release flexhead ratchet you used on the starter at 2:35 in the video Scotty? If so, I'd like to see you do a video on your thoughts regarding Tekton , modern high tooth count ratchets in general and good tool companies that stand behind their tools with lifetime guarantees and you know, who do think is good and who would you recommend avoiding.

  41. Ben Kalinowski November 20, 2019 at 3:58 am

    My dad bought a brand new c6 2007 z51 6 speed
    It was beautiful car and amazing fast and ppl stared
    It had a issue where the battery would due dead after 3 days
    It got so bad my dad had the battery charged 3 times in a year
    The dealership had the car for weeks trying to diagnose it
    My dad had it for a year and traded it in we don't have a learn law in Canada and we should
    I loved that car but man if it sat fi4 more than 3 days he had to unhook the battery
    3 new ac Delco batterys
    It was a major pos

  42. jeff jacobs November 20, 2019 at 4:02 am

    Another great video Scorty. I was excited to see a BTS section, but bumbed that it lasted 2.67 seconds. And more BTS video clips or bloopers.

  43. Adrian Hernandez November 20, 2019 at 4:07 am

    Scotty sounds like The Ice King from adventure time😂

  44. Ryan Frantz November 20, 2019 at 4:07 am

    Scotty, your cackles and laughter make me giggle like a child. Thank you

  45. Mt N November 20, 2019 at 4:19 am

    Is it me or am I the only one that noticed he took off the positive cable and not the negative???

  46. nostickpeople November 20, 2019 at 4:27 am

    You are worried about gettin squished by a corvette? Ur about the size of a hobbit. No worrys

  49. Richard Moreno November 20, 2019 at 4:59 am

    So why do corvettes suck? That looked pretty easy to me. Have you ever worked on some of the Ferrari's were you had to pull the engine to do valve cover gaskets ? Now that is ridiculous

  50. Marlon Mcderby November 20, 2019 at 5:17 am

    Corvettes are trash

  54. Yefuneh David November 20, 2019 at 5:43 am

    Ought to investigate to determine which GM engineer is responsible for that design and lock him up.

  55. 1955gaylord November 20, 2019 at 5:49 am

    I hope you put a OEM sensor in it !

  56. Grant Goldberg November 20, 2019 at 5:50 am

    Because the new ones don't have a stick shift. That's why the ones suck.

    Scotty really provides good info while enjoying the smell of his own farts.

  65. Hipsters & Hippies November 20, 2019 at 7:54 am

    Anyone else noticed that that gear wrench looks exactly like the Pittsburgh ones from Harbor Freight. And guess what… it works just as good too.

    Ha ha! Take notes auto engineers!!!
    “Can that part be accessed in situ?” No??
    Then design it better!!!!

    Scotty, what's your opinion on the New Toyota Supra? (I mean BMW M2) Hhhhmmm

  72. Mike Courtney November 20, 2019 at 10:21 am

    Scotty you are the (pro from dover…) GOD bless you sir…👍

    GTO or vette, what is more reliable?

  74. Jonny DIY November 20, 2019 at 10:42 am

    Speak of the Devil. My crankshaft position sensor just went out on my GM Suburban. Wish you were my mechanic. Got ripped off

  75. ThunderyZero November 20, 2019 at 11:07 am

    I finally convinced myself that scotty is actually a blind mechanic.. plot twist!?

  76. Noah Hunt November 20, 2019 at 11:10 am

    It's not just corvettes every single new car has shitty computers

  77. Daniel Young November 20, 2019 at 11:12 am

    Looks like she's been bottomed out a few times looking at the oil pan casing. Lol Darn those speed bumps and angled driveways.

  78. Woodland Burl November 20, 2019 at 11:36 am

    Somewhere near the 5:32 mark in the video. You as easy as….. to me that did not look that easy. So, I am happily giving you a big thumbs up for this one.

  79. Ray Kehr November 20, 2019 at 11:40 am

    I almost traded my bike for a Corvette yesterday

  80. backyard garage November 20, 2019 at 11:51 am

    I've never had an issue pulling starters on C6's. Never dropped exhaust to get them out. Maybe scotty doesnt know how to work on something that's not a 92 celica….

    Here's why boomer sucks

  82. Bill of Rights Not Needs November 20, 2019 at 12:16 pm

    GM's suck period horrible engineers cheaply made garbage. Are they still using side post batteries in their heaps & why would they ever use those anyway?!

  83. Mythos Allen November 20, 2019 at 12:22 pm

    Never remove the positive cable first!

  84. Mythos Allen November 20, 2019 at 12:24 pm

    The air gap needs to be set on Ckp sensors.

  86. Billie Boe November 20, 2019 at 12:52 pm

    Think of the guy who owns a corvette and has this problem needs to search for “Corvettes sucks” to know how to replace it😂

  87. Martin Lavoie November 20, 2019 at 1:36 pm

    Taking the manifold off is not much harder Scotty and you really should get a max Jacks set up would spoil you from working on the ground. I just had to do a starter on a Tacoma and had to take the intake off to change the starter so not only GM that does stupid things

  88. Martin Lavoie November 20, 2019 at 1:37 pm

    Also you should disconnect the negative terminal off the battery instead of the positive terminal

  89. Daniel Ramsey November 20, 2019 at 2:19 pm

    I want a corvette!

  90. Blue Ridge Ghost November 20, 2019 at 2:45 pm

    The worst thing one can do to a Mercedes is not drive it… Corvettes fall in the same category.

  91. Cars Trucks And Detours November 20, 2019 at 2:47 pm

    Going sideways huh…are you doing a neighborhood drift or was the traction control off? Ha, Ha🐴

  92. Tony M November 20, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    Scotty sounds like a 12 year old that has smoked for a decade.. or Charlie day lol

  93. Ted Malley November 20, 2019 at 4:32 pm

    Scotty…check out the new C8 mid engine Stingray…you'll change your mind…

  94. Rich P November 20, 2019 at 4:39 pm

    Had the same issue on a 2000 Olds Intrigue way back. Would start but just stall shortly after. I recall it being similar to what Scotty showed with the Corvette in that the starter had to be removed to change crankshaft position sensor.
    I prefer to use rhino ramps over jack stands whenever possible especially for something like this.

  95. tee vee November 20, 2019 at 4:41 pm

    Why don't you have a lift?

  96. James p November 20, 2019 at 4:55 pm

    the car sucks because the sensor was in a tight spot how easy do you want it to be not a Toyota Corolla way easier than any exotic cars

  97. J V November 20, 2019 at 5:03 pm

    Scotty, you should do a behind the scenes more often

  98. BB November 20, 2019 at 5:13 pm

    Corvette being a genuinely good car–> I was wrong about the corvette

    As smart as placing starter inside intake, leave it to GM Geniuses
