good YT videos


(Weber Auto Channel at Weber State University - YouTube Channel)

This channel features technical videos by John Kelly from the Department of Automotive Technology who teaches at Weber State University.  He presents technical content related to Hybrid and Electric Vehicle technology, Automatic Transmission technology, Manual Drivetrain technology, and Vibration Diagnostic technology.  This is great for those who want to dig deeper into the inner workings of their vehicles (automotive engineers, mechanics, DIYers).
