Chevy Trailblazer misfire DIY diagnosis - step one - p0301 p0302 p0303 p0304 p0305 p0306
Here I have a Chevy Trailblazer with a P0302 - cylinder #2 misfire. I show you the basic troubleshooting steps that you can do that only require a code reader and a few hand tools. This procedure can be done regardless of which cylinder is misfiring. First, I swap the coil of the misfiring cylinder with another cylinder. At the same time, I swap the plug of the misfiring cylinder with another cylinder that is NOT the one that I swapped coils with. I then clear the codes and then run the engine. If the misfire moves to the cylinder that I swapped coils with, then I have a bad coil. If the misfire moves to the cylinder that I swapped plugs with, then I have a bad plug. If the misfire stays on the same cylinder, the problem lies elsewhere. Further steps will be shown in future videos. Big thanks to Bill (Kristis Dad) from trailvoy for donating the bad coil!!! UPDATE June 2013 - I know you can also unplug the coils with the engine running to isolate the cylinder. If you want to show that to these guys, how bout YOU make a video. When the average youtube user, who doesn't have much experience doing stuff like that, gets hurt, YOU can live with that on your conscience. I know I couldn't. SMFH.

My main point here is that if you have a performance problem and you're going to throw parts at the problem start with the basics before you to off and start replacing sensors that you suspect are a problem, if you don't have evidence of a faulty sensor then don't start there start with the simple tune up items and check for vacuum leaks and air leaks as I've shown here and I believe you'll have better results and save yourself some money in the process. In short the rule of KISS applies, Keep It Simple Stupid. If you have questions about your own engine performance issues head over to my website and either ask the search function or ask the forum, we'd be happy to help. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.

Chevy Trailblazer spark plug replacement 4.2 I6
A how-to video for replacing the spark plugs in a Chevy 4.2 I6 engine. Always use AC Delco 41-103s in this engine. NOTE: The AC Delco 41-103s are pregapped from the factory. That's why they have the plastic sleeve things in the box, so the gap won't change during shipping and handling. For what it's worth, I have replaced hundreds of the delco iridium plugs and haven't gapped a single one. If for peace of mind or whatever you do decide to gap them, do not use the "silver dollar" gap tool (or equivalent).

You guys do know that your commenting history is publicly visible, right? I can see you're fanboys of some other channels and I don't give two fucks what you or they think or do.

1996 Ford F-150 No Start with ScannerDanner-EricTheCarGuy
1996 Ford F-150 No Start with ScannerDanner-EricTheCarGuy ScannerDanner and EricTheCarGuy are back again this time solving a no start condition on a 1994 Ford F-150. This time I wouldn't let him use his fancy expensive scanner and to be honest it was no problem for ScannerDanner because he understands the fundamentals. It's really great to work with ScannerDanner because he knows so much about these systems and how they operate, I learn something every time we work together. So please enjoy this no start diagnosis with nothing more than a spark tester, a DVOM, and a test light.
