A must listen podcast

Really enjoy the common sense approach to vehicle repair. I am a retired Semi Tractor and Medium Duty mechanic that had my own shop for 30 years. Some of their answers to these category of vehicles is vague and not best but they seldom get any heavy duty questions. It is permissible and valued to just tell the caller that is not in their wheelhouse of experience and tooling and diagnostic equipment. I don’t know squat about light duty pickups and cars but enjoy their knowledge about them no matter brand or vintage. Sometimes Chris is annoying. Russ and Shannon are good wholesome people.
