    To answer the most common questions in the comments section:
    1.) Quality videos like this take a lot of time to produce. This and the next took me over 300hrs.
    2.) Follow me on Instagram "ChrisFixit" for daily updates and tips and tricks.
    3.) The exhaust on the car is the performance exhaust, just used on the track.
    4.) The speedometer is fine… it spun all the way around at the last drift event and I havent had a chance to take the gauge cluster out and push it back to the other side of the peg.
    5.) The other red Mustang is from this video:

    Good timing as always. I just got a 98 Jetta that will most likely need a transmission if I can revive the engine. I am hopeful so far

    How did you get the car jacked up high enough to fit the 12 ton stands? I have the same jack and don't feel like it would go high enough. Also wondering if you make a script before you shoot since your hand motions are always right on point with your voice over. And also….Great job! Love your videos and I've learned a lot from watching over the years. Thank you

    Hi chrisfix, idk if this has been asked before or your stance on this, but will you be doing a video about turbocharging and what you should do to prepare for one? A lot of tutorials exist but dont cover information as deep as you go, and as someone who is quite new to cars I need a good tutorial to follow. Thanks!

  56. Austin Skousen says:

    Why did 1K dislike such an awesome video?

  57. makeminefreedom says:

    Years ago I had a transmission lock up on a Chevy Vega. When it locked up it immediately stalled the engine blowing oil through a couple of spark plug wells. I coasted to the side of the road and restarted the engine. It ran with blue smoke out the tailpipe but the transmission was finished. A couple of backyard mechanics said they could help me replace the transmission with one from a salvage yard. After they attached it I put it in gear and the car moved but it rattled and shook. I didn't know it at the time but when the original transmission locked up it warped the flywheel. My buddies attached a used transmission to a warped flywheel. If your engine stalls when your transmission locks up make sure to check your flywheel before you bolt another transmission to it.

  65. look4keith says:

    Every mechanic in the world: "You don't want to replace your transmission. It's a lost cause, and it is far too much work."
    Chris Fix: "Follow these simple steps to remove your transmission. I'll hold a camera while I do it all by myself."

    I love this video. It helped me a lot. My question is this, my input shaft doesn’t seem to want to line up perfecting with the pilot bearing. It doesn’t have any play, I just can’t get it to line up perfectly. Any savvy tips for a situation like this?
