My friend Zach has always been a huge help when it comes to my salvage projects. When he saw found the Turbo Beetle he always wanted, I decided I'd surprise him with it. Turns out, the car was a theft recovery car, somebody had crashed it and it was in rough shape. It won't start, but we tried to get it to run...

  • Sam is like a dad, and his step mom is like a step mom.

    • i dont know if anyone gives a shit but yesterday I hacked my gfs Facebook password using SicZine. You can find it by Googling for SicZine account hack if you wanna try it

    • You're the best SEnewssR ever Sam.....will you buy me a Beetle? Miss my herbster lots!

    • @Tony Anderson “Oh no step son I’m stuck in this safe”

    • She got caught in the safe.....

  • You pull the engine cover and the other guy hits it with sledge hammer on the side (wrapped in cloth).

  • Those new beetles are such underappreciated cars its crazy. If you need a good car with good power and dont mind 2-door, then its perfect steal. Even 2.0TSI ones go for pittance.

  • my 2014 TDI VW Beetle destroyed the Fuel Pump....the inside of Pump went thru my fuel lines Fuel Filters...destroyed my Injectors....VW Replaced it all $7000.00 1 month later Destroyed the Turbo....$2000.00 VW payed for....65,000 miles still under warranty

  • why aren't you scoping the cylinders before you do the compression testing?

  • The moldy disadvantage controversly milk because wholesaler unusually bake astride a scandalous bowling. pink, quack insurance

  • Of course he drives over an hour each way. Gotta get those brownie points with step mom.

  • good detail. he was speechless

  • That is a pretty marvelous gift.

  • I want to point out that no rebuilding this engine is not as expensive as buying a new one.

  • Every Vw I've had the cable breaks off from the handle and had to fish the damn cable out

  • BimmerGeeks tool is WAY better!

  • that moment you try jacking up your car but it sounds like step mom haha . Love your work Sam , hope the current BM project works out

  • Lots of RESPECT to you my Man !

  • Had to stop watching couldn't bare seeing unnecessary damage being done to the car. Future reference Sam, when you pull the cable you should be pushing down on the hood that would make for an easy release of the latch by offering less resistance as opposed to pulling the hood up, capeash

  • Nice Sam good heart bro!

  • Almost sure zack is Venezuelan

  • do any of your cars run?

  • The damage in the back makes no sense the previous owner hit it with the hammer 🔨 just look at the dents in the back makes no sense he blew his engine and scammed his insurance company

  • What a bunch of muppets!

  • I thoroughly enjoy your videos. So cool of you to buy the car for Zach. It brought a tear to my eye when he said “no one has ever done anything like that for me”. This was one of your best videos. You’re a good dude, Sam. Thanks for sharing.

  • You need to pump some jack grease

  • You're a good man , Sam Crac

  • they called it the anniversary bug..... What an amazing gesture Sam... I am quite sure you will figure it out with that obvious great big brain....Great big heart as well......new subscriber. Canadian Vet, ive been living vicariously through you and your projects...

  • How could 279 people give a thumbs down. Some people are just ass hats.

  • As soon as you opened the engine I knew it wasn’t going to run and then the cam code confirmed it. These engines at least the earlier ones had a tensioner issue where it would fail and loose timing although I don’t know if it was the issue with this one but Definitely something to keep an eye on with these engines along with the rear main which may leak. All in all hope your buddy has good luck with this beautiful car and I look forward to seeing it on the road again.

  • Awsome friend you are 👍

  • you can do online salvage yard searches and a lot of the time they will list the color of the car/part. pretty sure thats what tavarish used to do when he was still flipping beaters in NYC

  • Way to go Sam. Sam I have to say if I ever need someone to pick me up a car from the auction. It won’t be you lol you have hands down the worst luck picking out cars from auction. I watch dozens of other SEnewssrs Buying cars from the auction and none of them even come close to your bad luck. Well maybe the good dead you did helping Zach out will change your luck.

  • Wow Sam I didn’t realize you knew Zach. I love his channel as well that pontoon boat came out amazing he does great work and he is a great guy.

  • Lovely gesture and good lads for sending the engine. To summarise this video is wholesale AF 👍👍

  • Cambelt

  • All my friends are equally poor and none of us has a car. I think I need new friends

  • I don't know why, but I have always like the VW Bettle and would totally purchase one for a fun goof around vehicle. The only question comes down to Turbo gas or TDI.

  • How to open a hood: You're doing it wrong.. 🤣🤣🤣

  • Ok, OK, now I've got to call all these people I've told otherwise, "SamCrac ain't such a bad guy after all!" Cheers to you Sam!

  • Man, pull off that drivers kick panel and look there first.

  • Why not fix the head thats a easy fix.and that happens a lot. The intake valve hit

  • nice donkey jack samcrac

  • I don't know if he could let us know but what was the price for the engine from j&j.

  • did you check for a broken timing belt? many pistons are designed with valve inlays to achieve higher compression ratios and prevent valve damage in the case of a timing belt failure..

  • Hi Sam, jp Performance and Prior Design, here in germany, are currently working on a pretty cool beetle bodykit, maybe thats also something for you and your friend

  • It sounds like you're jack needs some lubrication and some jack oil!

  • Even running. That is absolute garbage. I’m sorry to be negative but those cars make Fiats look reliable.

  • Yeah you're a rough mechanic lawl SEnewss

  • you dont really work on much though, just video video video

  • Lmao at 6:05 on the video, the app states it can find information about your VAG.

  • Shame

  • that jack needs some oil its sounds like someone stepped on the dog's tail n hes screaming off lol

  • you push up and down on the hood while someone pulls the handle works well sometimes that whole front end comes off super easy .except for 2 hidden little bolts in the headlight bezel ..you will meet them

  • I’m surprised you even have friends crack head sam. Your a total loser

  • holy crap I just realized who samcrac reminds me of. Sammy from Blue Mountain State

  • Right on Sam, very cool indeed and way to go helping Zach with a gift that will last a life time,may your needs be met when needed ...

  • Hot mama

  • First things first. Throw some used motor oil on that screechy jack...

  • I LOVE THE VAG GROUP (VOLKSWAGEN GROUP) 😍❤️❤️

  • What if he had bought a similar turbo VW in those 5 weeks?? lol! I mean you did tell him you didn't win it.

  • My dog- *eats my dinner* Me- BAD DOG! My dog- 10:45

  • Piece of shit money pit

  • Having previous experience with one of those engines I'm going to guess a timing issue but I don't know it sounds when it cranked

  • Your floor jack sounds like a scolded dog

  • Damn Sam u give the worst gifts 🎁 never get me anything

  • I thought sam was gonna rebuild it paint it & reveal it "pimp my salvage car" style but this is still dope

  • Dude, only you could have given such a gift to somebody.

  • Fsi uses belts, tfsi, and tsi uses timing chains.

  • It's nice to be nice.

  • Thats so awesome. I do love carly on my e46. I have done so much coding and repgraming with it, it has really saved me a lot of money. The diagnostic portion is good but I get a lot of fault codes that false, but then again it is pretty heavily modified so that might be the reason.

  • That was very nice of you Sam, Merry Christmas .

  • You may think I'm crazy but I want to turn my 2013 santa fe into a sleeper. yay or nay?

  • Well done Samrac you're a star!

  • Give a car to someone in need like your friend did

  • Your assistant carly is pretty slim, compared to Rich's assistant, she's a bit more thicc.

  • Warped Perception!?

  • Do you EVER buy a working car!!!

  • Great video! Really curious for the end result.

  • German engineering... lol

  • How can I contact you?

  • Samcrac. Pat on the Back for buying this for Zac. Love both your chsnnels

  • @10:42 , carjack moaning, Sam moaning, a magical moment😉 Joke aside, what great gift😊 Merry Christmas!

  • Why did the jack sound like his step mom?

  • Good job Sam

  • It has bent valves. Replace them and the head and you should be good

  • Voucher code for carly invalid. too bad , I wanted one!

  • Well, I am suspicious. I bet the owner killed the motor and had it "stolen". To make it look more real, some damage was done to the car.

  • Thank you for the video

  • I want that e46 m3 so badddd🥵

  • thats amazing.....I have autism and saved up and bought a 2006 volvo non-turbo v70...spent 2-3k on timing belt and other maint. stuff...but now it needs some suspension love hopefully it wont cost me too much, havent been able to work regularly since march and I'm dying to drive anything at this point

  • Thank you! For restoring faith in humanity!

  • floor jack on grass, reaching under car without safety supports BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't show this video to my students because of that.

  • I finally ordered a CARLY! I used your name and got $18 off! With shipping it totaled $72, can't wait to give it to my son to use on his 2007 VW Rabbit! Thanks for the link!

  • 👍👋👋👋😁

  • Your nose is so huge

  • Not sponsored by WD-40 lol 😂

  • nice one dude ,you made his year good man

  • Sam the new Beetle Hatchback Infotainment and Features The Intelligent crash Response System will also switch off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and activate the hazard lights in the event of a crash.

  • You need to grease that jack bro...

  • yep, driven like it was stolen.

  • Had to turn down the volume when he was jacking up the car because it sounded like something else. Haha
