Hello Paul. Just want to say thank you very much for the diagnostic revolution that you have started via YouTube! You are an excellent teacher and, aside from your depth of knowledge, your ability to get your point across is top notch and the best on the web.

I'm a long time diy-er and after watching your videos have become fascinated with your diagnostic technique. I'm slowly working on improving my skills by watching, reading, and practicing. I'm going to buy your book as a resource and learning tool and also as my way of saying thank you for all that you've done.

Hello all..

My name is Shawn.. I am a truck driver by trade and wear out my data plan by watching ScannerDanners videos over and over sometimes.. lol.. I have been a truck driver for the last 17yrs..

but before that, I worked in a 10-Minute Oil Change place, a race engine rebuild shop (worked with a friend helping him fix big trucks in the middle of the night and in the, helped that same friend run his Southern Modified Winged Sprint car on the weekends, a starter/alternator rebuild shop, and other jobs not related to cars..

but I have never been a diagnostician.. I was a parts changer..

just out of high school, I took a correspondence course for auto mechanics (but I quit before I got my oscilloscope..).. but I have always just been in that parts changer mentality.. and I have always worked on my own cars..

recently, I found both Eric the Car Guy, and ScannerDanner.. and now at the age of 46 am going to retrain myself, with their help, to be a diagnostician.. no longer just a parts monkey..

I just bought the EBook, and subscribed to ScannerDanner Premium.. so I think my new journey in retraining the monkey is on a good starting path.. I have 3 vehicles I will be mainly working on.. a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee, a 97 Infiniti I30, and an 89 Olds Cutlass Ciera..

I am having to start over tools wise, but my basic kit is just about complete.. and I plan to purchase a dedicated ToughBook for mechanical work, a Hantek Oscilloscope, 65 and 650v clamp leads and some other tools to help me learn the New way of diagnosing mechanical electrical problems..

I will probably not be a frequent poster, but I will try to contribute as much as I can..
I have a youtube channel and intend to document repairs and testing sessions when they arise so you can see what I have done, and if I make a mistake, how to correctly execute my stated goal for the test..

I apologize for the wordiness, I am glad to be here.. thanks

Hello My name is Fred Jochen. I am a Marine Technician. I have 20 years experience in the Marine industry. 18 of the 20 years as a tech. I am co owner of a small shop in California. Props to ScannerDanner ( no pun ) ha ha. Thanks for all of the info and teaching. As we all know as techs, knowledge does not come easy or cheap . Although I work on boats, a lot of the information I get from SannerDanner correlates with my industry as most of the manufacturers I work on use GM products. Thanks again
