Easy 3-Step Parallel Parking With 3 Simple Markers


For new drivers, parallel parking is considered to be the hardest skill. For non-new drivers, the problem is not remembering how to do it when it is needed. Or you may not have the confidence to do it in one shot.

Mathematically, there is only a single fixed solution to parallel parking. If you follow the instructions exactly, there should be no variations and anyone should be able to complete the parking in one shot without hesitation. When you have a problem, either you are not following the instructions correctly and precisely or more commonly the instructions were not precise and were hard to interpret. Today I am giving you the shortest and very precise instructions in just 3 steps. Instead of using common phrases such “knowing your 4 wheels” or “don’t collide front, back, left or right”, I am providing you with 3 easy to understand and well-aligned markers to follow while you are inside the car driving. The video is a little long because I want to demonstrate multiple times and I want to explain the concept well so that you will never forget. Once you learn it, you’ll be good for life.

I understand that some of you may have your own preferred set of instructions, and may have already mastered the art of parallel parking. However, teaching someone else is quite a different thing! I have spent a year in researching and producing this video, so I would appreciate any comments that let me know if the concept in this video is good or not.

DIY: Cheapest Engine Oil Extractor, Drain Fluid Easily and Free

If you hate sliding under the car and getting your hands covered with dirty oil or damaging the oil plug, I will show an easy way to construct your own oil extractor free! The most difficult DIY oil change is getting underneath the car to drain the old oil. Now that is no longer an issue and I also make the DIY super cheap (it’s free)! Please share it with your friends.

If your oil filter is not mounted on the top, you will probably have to slide underneath the vehicle anyway. Still, the extractor eliminates the difficulty of wrestling with a stubborn drain plug bolt. Also, removing the drain plug often means having hot oil gush onto your hand. The oil extractor makes the operation easy, but if you do decide to do the traditional way, we have a different video to make it a little easier for you: https://youtu.be/S0Ndn4rdBMg

Some people may question the advantages of this method. You may not get all the oil out, you may not remove all the debris out etc. The counter argument is: but the oil filter will hold most of the debris. The oil is changed hot which means the debris doesn’t really have time to settle. Plus no matter what you do , there is still oil left in the engine, oil left in the pan. What do you think? Is draining better? Do you get most oil out? Does 2 cups of oil left in the engine really matter? Post your thoughts in the comments below.

What is Done to Your Car During Yearly Smog Check?


Aren’t you curious about what is done to your car during your yearly smog check? Every year or every other year I have to have a smog check done. In the past when I asked to do video taping, they always refused. Today I found a friendly shop to let me show you how exactly the smog check is done.

There are 2 different smog check procedures, one for cars from year 2000 and earlier, the other one is for newer cars (which is easier). There are 7 steps in your California smog check. They are computerized tests and takes about 20 seconds for each test. If you pass the test, the report then is sent directly to the DMV electronically.
