      Hopefully these tips are helpful. The weather has been horrible here with snow ever couple of days which has put a hamper on filming my regular How-To videos. Hopefully the snow melts soon! I have some awesome videos coming!!!

      1. Ezekiel Morales

        Can you please make a video of negotiating a used car at a dealer ship?

      2. Duke Craig

        A square clear plastic lens from a welding hood is the best ice scraper that you'll ever use, they'll cut through ice that the regular scrapers just skip across.

      3. MattyG

        Hey man can you do a video about head lights or tail lights with wooder/condensation in them and how to fix it or prevent it 🐐🐐🐐🐐

    5. Mathew Bolanos

      Hey Chris I just got a 1995 mustang it starts up but when u add gas it sputters and dies. Any tips?

    6. Nick Soehren

      That plastic bag trick on the side mirrors is pretty smart haven't heard that one before

    7. Mike D

      While I was growing up my parents took all our vehicles into the driveway and as close to the house as possible. First car gets backed in and the next one gets parked up close to the front bumpers to help keep the engines warm as long as possible. Some of us had different schedules that helped keep most of the heat in and some of the snow off. One side had less to clean off because of the house. Less scrapping too

    8. Eric

      About time for another video isn't.......

      I love living in Florida during the winter months. It’s dry sunny and cool. The summers on the other hand is hot with daily thunder storms

    20. Stacey Toure

      Do a drift vid

    21. Michele Alaimo

      For ice on windows.... I always have a 50/50 solution in a spray bottle of isopropyl alcohol and water with a few drops of dish detergent. Spray that on the widows and BOOM... ice be gone!!!! :-)

    22. Salutations

      Rain-X Treated windows are easier to clear snow and Ice off of. Its something i noticed a few years ago and it works. I always treat the windows late Fall for Winter. For me, most of the time i have time to warm the car up, but ive scraped and gone with a lot less effort on treated windows.

    23. Longnails

      Hello i know is about snow thing my question is due u know if any ford ranger headlights fit a Mazda 04 b3000 thank u

    39. Peter Kjærgaard

      You gotta paint the driftstang into some cool colours like ken block or pastrana did on their cars!! and then do what you do best, making a video of it

    40. CARBON BLACK

      Chris I watched you when you had 500 subs and it’s amazing how fast your account has grown

    41. Minhaj Uddin

      Wouldn’t wd40 work as well as silicone for frozen doors?

    42. muhammad qaiser

      In your next video PLZZZZ add logos on your car like purple scratches on the side

    43. Antor Sarker

      I don't own a car nor can I drive a car. Also snowfall never happens in my country. But I watched the whole video satisfyingly without skipping a second.

    44. MARCHIZUL GAMER

      Hey chris! What happend to your driftstang?

    45. Nazimelon

      I live in germany and generally speaking, we dont get too much snow in the south. last year we moved to a hilly area tho, temperatures are considerably lower, there´s way more snow, etc. I have never understood just how convenient the winter-package offered for cars is, until this year. I have a Seat Mii, an Eco-box based on a VW Up, the winterpack cost, whoever got the car new, some decent extra money so it seemed excessive but Frozen mirrors? heated. Cold butt? heated. Engine cold? someone fit a coolant preheat in it. yes really, in a small ecobox. its just insanely convenient.

    46. ASHTON EASTERLING

      10,000,000 face ravel????????

    47. Eric Olsen

      Purchase a small plastic ice scraper without a brush for $2-3 or on clearance in the spring for like $1 or less when your wheel wells get packed with snow use it to clear it from your wheel liners trying to avoid your painted bumper covers, body or flares this will also prevent excess water in your garage if you have one available which can refreeze after melting do you rears and for your front wheels turn start your car and turn your steering wheel lock to lock get the front of one side and the rear of the other fender and switch wheel direction. if your car has unpainted textured bumper covers like 93-04 Grand Cherokee's give it a swift kick with your boots and a-lot of snow will drop.

    48. Ramsey Villarreal

      Hello Chris, I've been recently seeing your videos and I really enjoy them, they're really useful to me, I know that there's still some snow wherever you're at, but once its all gone I was wondering if you could make a video on how to properly clean a convertible, thank you so much in advance, God bless you

    49. Cameron Chambers

      Hey Chris hope you see this but can you make a video on replacing a heater core? Seen some of other videos but they not clear or doesn't show all the steps. I really want to do it myself instead of paying $1500 for mechanic to replace it

    50. Marianne Jassar

      Where I live we get snow once every 10 years...But still found this vedio interesting 👍👍👍👍hi from Jordan 🇯🇴

    51. Adrian Kasiama

      Why don't you drift the driftstang any more

    52. Lucas Etten

      Why does this channel have so many subscribers?

    53. Anthony Valverde

      Where did you get the battery terminals for the mustang. they look better than anything I can find.

      1. Anthony Valverde

        Ps. give cooper lots of belly rubs for me

    54. Thomas innovative mind

    55. Quenten. H

    61. MTB Uknown

      i just saw the first ever driftstang vid again and noticed his final objective was to get a vinal or wrap on it soooooo WHERE IS THE DRIFTSTANG AT BRO!!!!!!!

    62. Lee Mannile

      Hey chris how can we put a new the car pc ps i dont know how to spell the real name

    63. Jack Vogel

      Hey ChrisFix! I just wanted to let you know that your videos inspired me to fix up my 1997 Ford Mustang! Just got done installing new spark plugs, spark plug wires, a new coil pack, and I even wired some exterior LED lights with a switch under my hood to give me extra light to work on my stang into the night. I am only 20 years old and have never known these skills before watching your videos. It is a great feeling to learn from you and then to put what you teach into practice. Starting up my mustang after installation was an amazing feeling! Thanks!

    64. Horat Cocles

      Better reason for backing cars and trucks into anparkong space, same reason why emergency services does it. Ypu don't have an emergency when parking at the end of the day,, but if you have an emergency at home like a family member injured, you can safely exit the parking quickly.

    65. Mckenzie Brodie

      chris can you do a garage tour

    66. Addison McCullough

      Hey Chris so I have a 2002 ford ranger and when I go slow when I first start the car the breaks act up have you had any problems like this on your mazda if so how did you fix it

    67. richardtodd42

      Step one: park indoors.

    68. Lissa K

      My tip is not to use a leaf blower on the snow, especially before 10 am. That noise wakes up the whole neighborhood. I have a neighbor who blows off all snow including 1/8 inch dusting from his driveway and car. Everyone HATES him 😅

    69. Larry Hostetler

      I used to use an old license plate to scrape snow and ice from my windows

    70. LEGIT ALI

      who else watches Chris fix's video but don't get anything?

    71. M. Mir2

      So Chris. When are you going to do a video on installing a rear camera? There are many different models that include wireless types. I love to add one to my car, but your video would really help. PLEASE?

    72. DarkDiamondNinja

      Chris, you sound like an adult version of Gingka from beyblade. I’m living for it.

    73. cabhog77

      Chris I have a Ranger sport with the plastic floor liner no carpet, what is the best way to make it look good?

    74. Levi Casey

      Someone please go through and count how many times he says woder

    75. the Ayatollah of Rock and Rollah

      where is it you are with all the snow Mr. Fix?

    76. Misaki_16

      Where is the turbo del sol video

    77. iravenBG

      Hey chrisfix a friend if mine had a problem because he uses LPG which has this part that freezes in cold weather so most people use hot water to heat it or else the car wont start or run properly if its frozen.

    78. Screaming Khalifa

      I WANT YOU TO DRIFT😭😭😭🥺🥺

    79. the slovakians

      Don't forget to refill ur blinker fluid it tends to evaporate when it's cold outside

    80. Paul Cruz

      I lived in tropical country but whatever i will watch it anyway.

    81. Rob & Laurie

      Gotta Love Chrisfix . The back the cars in the driveway. Great tip my friend ! No wonder everyone finds your videos beneficial. Spring is around the corner, BBQs here we come .

    82. Jon Brackin

      The only thing I can think of to add is really only helpful if you don't have a leaf blower. I start the car first. Then I start removing snow at the back of the car. Often, especially with thick, wet snow, the hood will be warm by the time I get there and makes that part of the car a bit easier to clear. Oh! And never use a hammer to break up ice on a windshield.

    83. Conner Coleman

      Spending $5 on some deicer spray 👍🏻

    84. Simon HD

      where are the driftstang?

    85. ChrisFalcher

      Hey Chris! I have been a fan for a long time, and I have a question. Can you show us how too high pressure can damage car paint? (Pressure washer) I have wondered how it can damage paint for a long time. Thanks

    88. Demetre Jakhaia

    92. Scott j

      I am not sure how I would write to you about something I’d really like if you could cover... maybe just leaving this comment is enough. When I first got my truck about three years ago it had heavy water spots on the glass and I used 0000 steel wool to remove the water spots but in my inexperience with vehicles I might have done it too long or too rough and it left swirl scratches all over the windows. I’ve tried waxing the windows and rubbing compound mixed with fast orange hand cleaner with pumice from a video I found on USfilm and a DA polisher and didn’t work. If you have a way to fix these steel wool scratches I’d really like the video! Appreciate what you do it’s all awesome tutorials and great video editing! Thanks ChrisFix!

    96. John Langeland

      I personally love to get the ice off of my paint by simply just using a circular saw. Works great on the ice, and the paint should be just fine.

    97. TrueVital

      Ive never heard of backing in called combat parking but i didnt do that for a few days when we got lots of snow and the shield underneath my car to protect the engine bay kept getting bent back towards the rear of the car and you can constantly hear it scraping snow with it, and bumps and just scraping the pavement in general. not fun dont recommend.

    98. Mr Mamado

      Chris, when are we going to TURBO THE DRIFTSTANG😎
