  • 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.

    • DONT CHANGE ANYTHING! I am so proud that you posted this and the wizard encouraged you to post this because it means there is still hope in the world of cars and repair shops, honesty, integrity, and admitting people are human and will always make mistakes. It's less dumb and more "human".

    • Hoopties??? Could you speak English please

    • 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!

    • You should try a 0,9 Fiat Seicento or Cinquecento. Thats more fun than this Mercédes.

    • 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 ✌🏻

  • Yeah, this type of drama adds to the video view counts. Maybe you should work more screw ups into the channel? Also, most of those liquids are just different types of lubricants and cleaners with different viscosity, you could easily run 100 miles with this type of mix up with no long term damage. You are living the dream dude!

  • Dude stuff happens. Wizard has been SOLID to you for a long time. Anyone can have a mistake but finding a mechanic that stands by his work and even goes beyond that. Dude thats golden

  • Don't buy cars if you are going stress about them I am so disappointed that you even posted this video at all. You seemed like a nice guy but true colours come out in the stress.

  • Had a 84 Buick Electra full size , beautiful car , drove it one year without powerstering , seal went . Difficult in town always back in when parking , easier on my upper mussels . Even I thought it would be easy to mix up the fluids . Mr Wizzard and Hovie have class .

  • Ohhh...the wizard has a matching Tangerine Orange Lambo tool in his pocket. Nice

  • OMG...is that a Chrysler Conquest ( Mits Starion ) in red in the background? The coolest Porshe 944 knock-off of the late 80s ever AND I didn't think any were still around as they have all blown up or rusted into the original iron ore they were smelted from...or old recycled silverware.

  • Actually, Wizard got it right, but his mechanic who was the supposed 'expert' told him he was wrong and it was the other way round.

  • standard repair cost: HOURLY rate 550$ IF YOU WATCH: 750$ If you HELP: 950$ IF YOU MAKE CS-tv VIDEO: 1650$

  • You never really know your garage until they screw up. A cock up is an opportunity to impress if handled well.

  • I own a 2008 bmw m3 and sometimes my dif moans. I took it to where I bought it and I got my fluid changed. When I went to pay for the service she said that they put the wrong dif fluid in. She told me that she was the one who caught the mistake. The dif oil that the m cars use is different from regular bmws. She was very nice and said sorry and she would charge me the cheaper price. Bavaria bmw in edmonton alberta is the best I thanked her They have my business for sure It sux When you rely on people to be professional But it happened Now we change our mindset and look for solutions We keep going

  • Wizard and you: 2 gentlemen

  • Every 11 seconds some guy in this world puts his thing in the wrong hole.

  • The Jaguar newbie did this to my mom's new XJ6. They gave her a new car but didn't fire the kid but instead trained him better which made both of us happy.

  • Cut d hamstring....he never walk again

  • 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.

  • Everyone makes mistakes he is a honest mechanic. That wouldn't stop me using him

  • Keep it humble dude

  • Show me a human being who doesn't make a mistake every now and then. People in glass houses!!

  • 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. 😡😡😡

  • That lambo is sexy af man I like it better than your sl63 but your sl63 is nice too.

  • What's next to the old woody?? That silver thing.. like I know what it is just can not think of the name.. think it starts with a A tho lol

  • EVANS WATERLESS COOLANT!? And the so called wizard just let this happen? You guys are insane. If that has overheating issues you just made it worse.

  • Back in 1987 I had a Dodge Conquest TSi just like that one in background!

  • The Wizard goes to The Dark Side! 😈..Wizard.in Vader Voice.."Hoovie I'm your Father" Wizard Wars!

  • 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.

  • Wow talk about chucking the wizard under the bus with this video.

  • Poor wizard, he’s clearly upset about making such a mistake. The wizard is the best!

  • I take it this is in the USA?

  • Why did he have to make this video, couldn't he have kept this one between him and The wizard. I guess the CS-tv views and money that comes with that was worth making his friend the wizard feel that bad

  • Wizard wizard wizard 👍😎

  • Omg omg omg 👍😎

  • 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.

  • Would take my car to the wizard anytime

  • I’m a welder and even sometimes I get burned. It’s part of being a craftsman, a tradesman. Sometimes you just get it wrong. The Wizard made it right though!!!!

  • I'm revisiting the transmission saga. Tyler was the only one on top of it. All I can say, is Jonny wouldn't have messed this up.

  • Good genial response, proper gentlemen, both in the vid and their pinned comments.

  • It's like my doctor just diagnosed me with cancer. I've only got three days to live. Please distract me!!!!

  • you were awfully nice to the wizard if one of my friends messed up i would rib him till he cried and then some . and tease him for months and months over it and after all that i would calm down and just remind him about it a couple times a year till death do us part xD NO i am not petty its just the codex of brothers Rule 1 if a brother fucks up you shall bust his balls relentlessly

  • i subscribed to car wizard after this video such a nice guy !!!!!

  • WELL he is human so mistake will happen. And he owned it so give the guy a break. You can see he embarrassed.

  • Why does he continue to use that fat lazy incompetent useless so called mechanic? ????? Why? ???

  • I love watching you and wizards videos y’all are awesome

  • Getting rich off videos. Doesn't seem like a big loss even if the trans went bad. Typical spoiled boy needs his balls coddled.

  • You are rubbing off on the Car Wizard the wrong way, but we are all human. Car Wizard needs to work on fewer cars and stop hanging out with Hoovies Garage.

  • 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.

  • Evans waterless coolant is shit. That's a downgrade for the woody.

  • I always watch your vidoes but after this you are worst man in the world

  • Note to ALL- DO NOT TAKE YOUR SLS to WIZARD GARAGE!!!!!!!!!

  • wizard handled that like a pro

  • I love that you’re kind of breaking the wizards balls on this but he’s actually really worried and upset. It’s good to have such a decent relationship with your mechanic.

  • Even DOCTORS do this type of stuff, but you won't hear about it unless it happened to a celeb.

  • you should buy yourself 1992 VW golf diesel, no stress

  • 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.

  • I swear Car Wizard seems like the most genuinely trustworthy, knowledgeable and just plain friendly car expert on CS-tv.

  • 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 knowledge.....it only makes folks laugh when someone chokes on it...😏

  • All the DCTs use special fluids. = Have a VW dual clutch transmission? --> better use the VW fluid. -And expect to pay a premium for it.

  • Bro wizard didn’t need all that passive aggressive shit. He said he’s fix it what more do you want bro

  • Garages carry insurance for this exact reason. If something goes terribly wrong they can fix it and not have to dump 30K into a car.

  • I am very disappointed at Tyler ;0

  • Video for February, 2020- transmission dies....back to the Wizard...then what?

  • New steering wheel and gas cap,what a thing to be able to feel better about with everything else all jacked up

  • Next time take it to the fucking Mercedes dealerships if it's such a big fucking deal. And the wizard hooked you up plenty of times so stop bitching

  • Car makers should just make all car fluids the same lol

  • its always a joy to see americans working on european cars xD

  • A serious question please? (Am not bad mouthing anyone or making fun of anyone). Why/How did Magic Mike who is the "Pro" of these cars make the mistake? Cause he was paying too much attention to the video making or......?? Great video you are a very honest shop indeed!

    • Or they were doing it on purpose to create extra fake drama.......

  • Stand up business owner. Went above and beyond. I wish I had a mechanic like the wizard.

  • As a mechanic I can't help but feel bad for the wizard. I understand someone being upset and worried but idk about making it a public shame show. He agreed to fix it and make it right I don't think digging the dagger deeper is going to help any.

  • 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.

  • Its got a quartek steering like a 1970s Austin allegro.I love square steering wheels.

  • What happened, happened. In this case, you are lucky as oil is oil and the damage is non-existent as you didn't drive it long enough to damage anything.

  • I mean if you cant afford a transmission to go out you shouldnt have 30 expensive cars and a mansion. Are you that tight? You probably make 20k+ a month doing the easiest job possible. As a subscriber, its good to see that you've re-evaluated yourself and apologized though.

  • Great video dude

  • The GT350 is GORGEOUS!

  • I feel bad for Mike.

  • Great love and respect for wizard and his channel. You could make a thousand successful repairs and one mistake. And that’s the one people pay attention too.

  • Wizard is the best and most honest mechanic ever. Most mechanics would say its fine if someone brought a car back for a reason like this

  • Tbf wizard called it correct, the Mercedes tech was at fault and corrected him (wrongly )

  • 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.

  • The Wizard did what was right in the customer care department, and you did a great job playing a dickhead customer.

  • Your both adults that shows in your reaction to a mistake. Both deserve a👍👍👍👍

  • The Car Wizard is the only guy I knew who fucked up but I ended up respecting him even more because of it. Total integrity

  • I wonder who his next mechanic will be?

  • Hoovie reacted pretty calmly. Wizard looks like hes about to cry.

    • Oh I'm sure Hoovie did not react well initially at all. I think this was a staged "No harm no foul" video

  • That corvette isn’t that bad. Check out @autoauctionrebuilds “Swamp thing”

  • Wizard is honest! Recognizes his mistakes and makes it right

  • How many people are getting payed the good bucks by one single youtuber lol :D

  • Using someone's (wrong) hole is guaranteed to result in a lot of anger... let alone inseminating it with (the wrong) fluid!

  • Wizard is human. And. a good guy.

  • Lol. It's funny, but jokes aside. The car wizard is an absolute badass. Even the best mess up. It happens. We're human.

  • Hoovie made the unforgivable mistake of buying that vehicle, on purpose! Dave, aka the Wizzard is a bloody legend, and a gentleman.

  • Wounded Pride can Cut Deep, sometimes even Deeper than a Close Friendship, Time will tell 😥

  • Huge respect for the Wizard. He is doing wonders for the reputation of independent mechanic shops. But folks, really, Tyler being a drama Queen is half the reason we watch right. Glad to know it’s all biz as usual now.

  • You can tell wizard felt bad this whole video.

  • 🤔Let’s face it though, it’s made for good content and this video wouldn’t exist nor the subsequent generate add revenue for the channel.... silver lining 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Genuinely awkward viewing

  • Tyler, it’s not only viewers that bring you wealth. It’s also content. Wizard has done you so well, how many times? I’ll wait..... How many times has he come through? Again, I’ll wait. He makes a mistake, and you throw a tantrum. You should rebrand. Maybe Karen Hoover would suit you better.

  • man,I need wizard type of mechanic in my country 😔
