One thing I'm very thankful for this Thanksgiving is my 10 year bromance with the Car Wizard. I could not own these hoopties without him. My channel has always been pretty honest showing the good with the bad, but usually the bad only applies to the many stupid things I do, or the stupid things nameless BMW engineers have done over the years. In this instance, the Wizard made a doozy of a mistake, and I was really worried and upset about my dream car (and a huge investment). Clearly, though, I was being a bit of a drama queen here. The Car Wizard agreed to handle it immediately, and even said it was ok that we make this video on the subject before I even asked. I was conflicted about doing it, but knew would be a good, honest story about the ups and downs of car ownership. It's clear many of you think I rubbed Wizard's nose in it a little too much, and you are absolutely right. He is a great mechanic, and nobody is perfect, and I'm glad to see the thousands of nice comments showing you don't think less of him, because I don't. I also understand why some of you think less of me, being so upset about something that isn't life and death. I know many people would dream about having the problems I have, especially in this current turbulent world. I totally get it, and apologize to those I disappointed. I'm very fortunate to be where I am, and I'll never forget that it's because you all watch these stupid videos.

Hoopties??? Could you speak English please Prije 17 dana
Actually, if you watch the original video again, Wizard said where the fluids should go correctly and his mecanic who supposedly knew what he was doing, told him he had them back to front, so wizard was not at fault, it was his mecanic to blame!

Whichever way to try to spin it you did him dirty by blasting him in front of millions of people, all so that you could get your little views. I would never put my mechanics reputation on the line like that especially since he took ownership of his mistake and stated he would fix it. Obviously views are more important than friendship to you. Peace out ✌🏻

Lots of love to you and the Wizard both. Getting emotional about something of that magnitude is understandable, albeit unfortunate. Wizard was honest and it proves how good of a mechanic he actually is. You will both grow, hopefully mutually, from this experience. Bless you both.

About time I lived seeing him own up to something. Wizard the type if it wasn't filmed he would have said he didnt do it. He still tried to tell hoovie u should be glad u didnt drive it 3000 miles. It still would have been your fault fatass if he did.

Citing: "One thing I'm very thankful for this Thanksgiving is my 10-year bromance with the Car Wizard...". I do think you´re kind of a pussy man! Of course, it´s about business, but you should value more your Car Wizard, for you won´t find many of those guys IN THE WORLD. You did not act like a gentleman, for you are clearly not one, and you aggravated so much the poor guy, that I have pitied him. Remember all the profit this guy has already made clear for you, timeless hours at "special price for Hoovies", walk the last 30 miles back on your knees and ask him to pardon you for your CHILDISH behavior. 😡😡😡

I'm glad that everything has worked out with the SLS, as a lot of people have said on here, mistakes happen, the Wizard is human just like the rest of us and we also all react differently to different things. I'm a recent follower and subscriber and I really enjoy your channel's content, long may it continue, stay well and stay safe.

That was a shit go on hoovies behalf,they obviously consider each other friends. Itd be a different story if wizard was just Tyler's mechanic but putting a friend on show for the whole globe to see was a dick move. I already loved wizard but this gave me a whole new respect For him. The way he was genuinely hurt by it,you can see how much passion he still has for he's work. I couldn't help but cringe at this video.

Mistakes like this happen when a mechanic doesn't want any repeat business from you. I do a variation of "the wrong hole" when I dont want a girl to call me ever again. Every once in a while they call you more.

From what I’ve heard, waterless coolant (WC) doesn’t run cooler, it actually runs hotter but as it boils at a higher temperature there isn’t the characteristic cloud of steam when it happens to warn you it’s overheating, therefore it’s possible the engine can run hotter than intended and overheat without you realising it. The reason water is used in almost all engines is because it transfers heat very efficiently (better than WC) so by switching it out in favour of WC on an engine that’s prone to overheating it could be a big and expensive mistake to install it without making improvements to the cooling system. I’m sure an engineer could work out the thermal conductivity difference in the 2 coolants and work out what extra volume of radiator could compensate for this shortfall in WC efficiency.

Just keep this in mind at all times Hoovie: The wizard is a vital part of this channel. I have been subscribed and watching since day one but if there is even an hint of wizard not coming back, i along with many others may leave. Technically speaking it wasn't the Wizards fault, it was magic mike who directed where the fluids went. TBF wizard handled it all very professionally. Hopefully this doesn't change anything regarding the relation with the wizard. BTW for 2 weeks i was unable to watch your videos so i haven't watched the videos ahead of this one. I assume things would be normal.

As a fellow mechanic I can say if you come into the shop calm mind and clean mouth we will work with you the best we can, if you come in screaming we will do the bare minimum to get you out the door and out of are hair. Please be nice to your mechanics we are not just replaceable cogs in a shop and it is a stressful job to do.

It's NOT a transaxle in that car. Transaxles have ONE case containing the differential and the gearbox. They also share the same fluid. Your AMG has a transmission/differential in SEPARATE cases using separate fluids. You can separate the trans from the diff on that car, but you CAN'T separate them on a transaxle-equipped car... its a common mistake to call it a transaxle, but it only shows one doesnt know what theyre talking about when they call them by the wrong name. Money doesn't buy only makes folks laugh when someone chokes on it...😏

I remember being told to put sawdust in the noisy engines gear boxes rear axles of cars going to the car auctions. Stops engine slap I guess so does a little heavy duty gear oil .I also remember piping in a red heavy duty heat resitant grease in to axles and gear boxes to eleminate leaks as it was very thick .I was not there to reason why I was there to do and try.I was event told to stand by and bid if a car wasn't making its reserve. And I could make filler out of anything including play dough and make convincing colour matches using water based paints under the right light. Good times.

I think Hoovie blew a gasket off camera and said things he regretted, which is why he was sooo apologetic. I could see Wizard holding himself back, he could pick Hoovie up and snap him in half if provoked. I smell tension in their relationship. Wizard wants to be nice as Hoovie made him a minor celebrity.
