Story
Tagline
I'm here to help everyone with their car problems at the Scottykilmer Channel on youtube.
Introduction
I started working as
a mechanic in my father's Texaco
gas station at the tender age of
14 (making it 42 years I've been
wrenching so far.) My grandfather
Elmer Kilmer, was my mentor.
In between getting a Masters
Degree from the University of
Illinois, and working as a mechanic
in the summer, I kept my 
mind clean while my hands stayed
dirty.
  In 1979 I got married and
started my own repair business.
But eventually, I became
restless. So I wrote my book,
Everyone's Guide To Buying A
Used Car, in 1994. This lead to me
becoming the "Crank It Up" car talk host at CBS TV in Houston.
  After ten years of car talk hosting, I moved on to the internet, winning an Emmy for Interactive Car Talk Host in 2004.
 

I'm always helping people out with their car care problems, making the seemingly incomprehensible complexity of modern cars easy to understand for everyone. My combination of mechanical knowledge, truthfulness, and humor makes for instructional repair videos that won't bore you to death.
