Real Mechanic Reacts to More Horrible Tiktok Car Advice

Those who have scrolled through the pages of video sharing app, TikTok, have likely been hypnotized by the algorithm’s entertaining nature. The platform has a way of mirroring the user’s every interest which can create a really personal experience. Even though apps like this video-sharing giant are absolutely destroying attention spans by captivating us with incredibly short videos, I have to admit that it can be a really entertaining place to spend time scrolling.

However, just like any other part of the internet, or real life for that matter, there can be lots of bad information hanging around out there as well. Don’t get me wrong. As a pretty mechanically inclined individual, I have actually learned a variety of interesting tips and tricks from TikTok to make life easier in a variety of different facets. However, for every insightful video out there, there are probably a couple that leads individuals down the wrong path to some bad advice.

This is especially true when it comes to the automotive corner of TikTok.

Let’s just say that when it comes to people trying to get views, things can get pretty dangerous. Sometimes, the videos are misleading on purpose but other times, creators just toss them up, hoping for a couple of likes to get their video seen by more people without really even knowing what they’re talking about.

This time, we tune in with Donut Media who takes a minute to break down the dark side of automotive TikTok. This particular video enlists the help of a mechanic to react to some of the questionable car advice on the site. Are any of these incredibly quirky ideas ones that could actually end up being efficient out in the garage or is TikTok a place where maybe you want to triple-check before trying out anything you see? It’s time to find out just that.
