Awesome...
I love how these vans can have the entire world wrong with them and yet they keep plugging away when they have no business running at all.

Oh I wouldn't say that... There are some very simple but confounding things that can put these vans on the side of the road.
I just happen to know what can and can't be ignored and how to work around certain things.
The transmission fix I did is only temporary and if I didn't have that diagnostics software, the van would still be stuck in limp mode. I knew the engine ran well and that was about it. I didn't totally know what was up with the transmission, and I certainly didn't know about the brakes!
It was an adventure, and none of it was staged for drama.
I have another one coming up soon that the seller prom ises will make the drive from Virginia back to Philly. I have my doubts, but I'll find out and Instagram it when it happens.

YouTube videos require so much editing. They certainly have their place and I have a lot of footage to make a number of them, but I just don't have the time to sit down at the computer and edit stuff right now. Those Instagram videos I put up we're over and done with in less than 2 minutes. You can obviously see that they are raw and unedited and they were simple to post. each platform has its positives and negatives, and I'm just trying to figure out what works best for me and for you guys too.

As an Instagram newbie, how do i access your other videos on this rescue?
(based on silosignal's "I watched all the videos! Keep it going!")
... "all" implies more than one?

Click his name, to the right of the video and all his images/vids will show up
All of these are the yellow van.

I am not an Instagram fan but I might just be too old...and I don't use my phone for that stuff either.

Yeah, I hear you "old guys". I'm crossing that line myself (41 years old) and I can remember life before cellphones and email. I think editing is my real problem. I'm doing tons of cool stuff with Sprinters every day, and I've got a phone, but I just don't have the time or skills to put together a slick video worth watchig. Or at least I'm not aware of an easy way to quickly edit them.
I think there's a YouTube live or streaming thing that I can look into. If anyone know about that and wants to give me some pointers, I'm all ears!
