    Best $22 tool I have bought

    My buddy had stop driving his 55 because the oil pressure kept dropping to zero upon acceleration. It has 40lbs at idle.
    I bought this $22 endoscope inspection camera, drained his oil, plugged in the camera in my smart phone and found his oil pickup tube was laying on the bottom of pan. Probably just saved his engine.

    I think those scopes are pretty cool and could come in really handy. But a "real" car guy would have just dropped the pan and left the phone scope to the millenials.

    Nice catch Bill!
    The problem is not the problem.
    The problem is your attitude about the problem.

    I also bought one of those scopes to find a leak in my pool plumbing. I found the leak right under the skimmer. Only had to cut
    one hole in the concrete deck to fix it. Time and money saver!!!

    I have one also. Can't say I've ever really had a great use for it, but I did look at the top of my pistons with it. I don't know if I can hook it to a phone, I leave an old laptop in the garage with the scope.
