  1. I love your videos!! So extremely helpful and easy to understand. One of my favorite YouTube Channels to watch! Thank you! Keep up the amazing job! ♥️

  2. Always an excellent video from ChrisFix. Even my 10 yr-old daughter likes your videos. I learned a lot from you than from an expensive autoshop here in our area. Haha.

  3. A fully qualified mechanic threw hundreds of dollars of parts without properly diagnosing the problem? What a conman!

  4. If the engine isn't "in time", wouldn't one of the pistons hit the valve, destroying it? That happened to my friend's car. His distributor belt broke, and one of the pistons hit a valve.

  5. How on earth did the pistons not MASH up the valves??? The camshaft timing was so far off, and this is an interference engine! Can anybody answer this??? Lmfao

  6. my neightbors van didnt want to start then we looked at its computer and there was some sensor that thoug the car was upside dow

  7. You solved so many riddles for me with that one video. I am so happy right now cause I was never confident enough to do my own timing belt as I didn't understand how to line it up. Thank you 1000 times over!

  8. The misalignment was almost 180 degree, i.e. multiple teeth. Does it mean it jumped that many teeth when the engine stopped working?

  9. ChrisFix maybe tell me what my car has? (2007 Honda Accord) won’t start basically sounds like a blender when trying to start. The mechanic told me it’s the timing but charges me 3k to fix. Please Help?! Will send videos of my car and the sound it made.

  10. BEST tutorial EVER Chris ! I've seen the video 3 times! Why ?…I've had the similar Honda powered vehicle ROVER 216 GSI (60 k km!!) and a "mechanic" have changed the coil distributor…then again the distributor failed due the faulty/bad spare part.
    I left the car for 4 years AND FINALLY GAVE IT AWAY..! (I regret now, not seen your this video in time.
    Car was a nice British "RACING GREEN" collor, new breaks, clutch (bad use of previous owner), and clean/nice interior…Pity.
    Keep going Chris, help people to save money …
    (note, I;ve seen ALL of your videos in Greece)
    PLEASE do more in European cars ! (Mercedes A, E, S clas, BMW E 39 E34 etc)
    Your work is highly appreciated in Greece so fahr I know.

  11. Grats! Having similiar issues after the o2 sensors (upstream and downstream) were replaced 2 months ago and check engine light is still lit. I can smell fuel and dies after I start it up. This will save me a lot of money and not go in debt using my credit card due to most of the charges are car repairs.
