Did a little seafoam treatment on my colorado. Had just cleaned my throttle body and needed it and was I glad that I did. Truck runs like brand new. Remember to never add to a engine that's not running as it will cause Hydrolock

Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky
throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this
video in response to it. There are many different configurations of
throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is
sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I
am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states
now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts

Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Chevrolet Colorado - etrailer.com
Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer
installation instructions and specs for complete information.
Today we are going to install hitch part number 82641 on a 2008 Chevy
Colorado, and this hitch also fits models from 2004 through 2007, as well
as 2004 through 2008 GMC Canyon. On the side of the frame we need to remove
this rear-most bolt that attaches the bumper and bracket to the frame. And
on the bottom, on pre-2008 models there are actually going to be two
logistic holes here. On this 2008 model, there is actually a weld nut with
a bolt into here, which we are actually going to take out, and we will be
using this hole as well. We need to do that on both sides of the frame.
Okay, with the bolts removed out of the frame, we want to go ahead and put
the carriage bolt and block into the frame. And I am going to go through
this hole here. And we actually want to use the fish wire that they
provided. We want to feed it through the hole at the bottom of the frame
and then run it out through the side access hole. Then we want to put the
block on and then wrap the threads of the bolt with the bolt leader here.
This allows us to pull the bolt and the block through the frame. And for
pre-2008 models that have the secondary hole here, we want to do the same
thing as well. But we want to make sure that the blocks do not overlap
inside the framework, and we need to do this on both sides of the frame. I
do want to make mention here that, again, on models before 2008 where you
have both holes and not the weld nut, the block alignment is critical.
Okay, with the hitch loosely installed here on the frame, I am going to go
ahead and put the existing fastener that we took out earlier back into the
frame. Then we are going to go over here to the side of the frame and
install the fastener here. We want to make sure we put the 1/2 inch block
in between the hitch and the frame. And we want to use the 14-mm hardware
that they provided in the installation kit. Now we want to attach all
fasteners on both sides. Now that we have got all the fasteners loosely
installed, the next step is to tighten them down and then torque them to
their specifications. The 1/2 inch fasteners here at the base of the frame
are going to be torqued to 75 foot-pounds and the 14-mm fastener on the
side of the frame gets torqued to 85 foot-pounds. And now that we have got
all the bolts torqued down, the installation is complete. This concludes
the installation of hitch part number 82641 on a 2008 Chevy Colorado.
HOW TO use seafoam properly
this demonstration is explaining how to use seafoam properly thru the brake
Booster vacuum line. notice how this
motor is very poorly kept up on maintenence. notice the motor knocking
before the shut off. the only reason y Dave Martin let us seafoam this
truck was to see all the smoke pour outa his filthy disgusting dirty ass
How to clean a throttle body and Idle air control valve (iac)
*** PLEASE READ ***
In this video demonstration, I show how to get to, remove, clean, and
replace the throttle body and idle air control motor (aka IAC) on a 4.2l
ford motor. This procedure is the same for any fuel injected vehicle.
* * * Check out my website krkvideos.com * * *
The vans require removal of alot more stuff just to access the throttle
A dirty IAC can cause a rough idle. A dirty throttle body can harm
performance and cause rough engine operation.
When the throttle body or iac is removed a new gasket must be used to
properly seal the connection to the intake.
GM idle air motors are generally mounted on the throttle body and can be
cleaned without removal from the throttle body. This means one less gasket
and a lesser chance of creating a vacuum leak.
The ford throttle body had a note on it that said it was not to be cleaned
because the coating on the throttle blade might be damaged. Thats fine for
a new car but that has to be disregarded when working on something that has
some miles on it.

Throttle body cleaning 2004 GMC Canyon
After reading online how to do this, i decided to out my throttle body on
my 2004 GMC Canyon and clean it. Having never done this before, it was
pretty easy and I am saving a lot money by doing it myself :)
How To Clean a Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAF)
Here I demonstrate the simple steps involved with cleaning your mass
airflow sensor. In this particular case I was troubleshooting a rough idle
on a 2006 Chevy Colorado 3.5, but these steps can work for almost any
vehicle. If you have any questions feel free to post them and I will do my
best to help!
Here are some of the codes you might see related to your MAF:
P0100 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Malfunction
P0101 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Range/Performance Problem
P0102 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input
P0103 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit High Input
P0104 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Intermittent
P0171 System too Lean (Bank 1)
P0172 System too Rich (Bank 1)
P0174 System too Lean (Bank 2)
P0175 System too Rich (Bank 2)
