    I am going to take your mind off learning English for a minute

    Is there any grammatical error ? I found nothing.

    - I am going to take your mind off learning English for a minute. would anyone like to know how a hydraulic steering system works? as most of you probably know it is not a simple directing of flow of oil into the steering jack; it has to be precisely and instantly controlled. if you are not interested, please DON'T hit 'like'.

    Hello, Kharkhun.

    Are you sure they are all correctly capitalized?
    (Please don't ask me whether or not they are natural English sentences.)

    You mean "Hydraulic Steering System"? You're right. Are the other parts fine?

    Hello, again.

    Well, not really. Please read each of your sentences carefully.

    I quote from one of emsr2d2's posts:
    "Start every sentence with a capital letter."

    tzfujimino is right, of course. Also, to be quite pedantic (and why not? - you're a teacher), the example should be quoted; the first sentence doesn't need a dash/hyphen preceding it; a question mark is not preceded by a space; and capitals (as in 'DON'T') are not used for emphasis in good writing - use italics ("... please, don't hit 'Like'"). 'Like' is capitalised if the link is.
    But your actual grammar is fine!
