I can see how this might be confusing, so I'll do my best to explain. The parts of the video where I replace the cam and crank sensors was shot just after Jerry picked up the car in early December 2015. The part where I replace the control arm and air tube were shot in late March 2016.

I realize this may be a bit confusing, but I wanted the series to end after the final video. I didn't want to have to come back with another video AFTER the final video which will air next week. This way the series concludes with the next episode.

Link to final episode: Link posted when it becomes available.
