How To Winterize Your Vehicle -EricTheCarGuy

Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Discussion about this video: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/component/kunena/18-The-EricTheCarGuy-Video-Forum/40872-How-To-Winterize-Your-Vehicle?Itemid=0#40872 This video has been a long standing request and I'm glad I was able to fill it here. So if you're about to go into the winter season perhaps this video will help you with ideas on what you should do to your vehicle before the snow flies. I took a slightly different approach with this one in that I reached out to my viewers and asked them about what THEY do when they winterize their vehicles and incorporated many of their suggestions into this video. Even so, I'm sure there will be other good suggestions and I would urge you to either post them in the comments below or even better post them to the forum link above. Either way your comments and suggestions are welcome. Enjoy the video.

This is a kind of video response to a question I got from RadicalComedy about servicing her AC system. Keep in mind that this is a very basic overview of the components and operation of the AC system. In future installments I plan to get more in depth about the operation and function of these parts but for now I think 6 minutes of your time is enough.

Carburetor Rebuild Basics (Part 1) -EricTheCarGuy
Carburetor Rebuild Basics covers the basics of rebuilding a carburetor. Now there are a LOT of different carburetors out there so this video won't apply to all of them, but it will give you a general idea of what you would be in for if you decided to rebuild one. Me, I like rebuilding carburetors. There's something about mechanical things like carburetors that interest me. How even the smallest part has a big effect on the overall operation of your engine. Since we've gone to fuel injection carburetors have become somewhat obsolete. I'm still a fan though. I may be a little rusty on this stuff since I haven't done this in some time but I hope this video helps you just the same. If nothing else, I hope you're entertained by it.

1996 RL Rear Wheel Bearing Replacement -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ I get lots of requests to just do straight up repair videos like this all the time and I'm always happy when I can oblige. This wheel bearing replacement is fairly typical for a FWD vehicle so much of what you see here can be applied to other FWD vehicles. There are variations in the way the bearing attaches to the hub however the principals are pretty much the same. You should not need a press to do this, just some basic hand tools and sockets will do, air tools make it easier but you don't need them to get this done. As you can see in the video I ran into trouble but the method I employed can be used if you find yourself in a similar situation.

How To Rebuild a Front Brake Caliper -EricTheCarGuy
In the past few videos I've been getting my Fairmont ready to take to the drag strip. Since I discovered some brake issues I thought it best to address those. In this video I rebuild the right front caliper. Turns out after I replaced the brake hoses that it was sticking and not releasing. Not wanting to spend the money on a new caliper, I decided to go for a rebuild. Now may of you may question the logic of doing this, especially when you see the caliper piston, but keep in mind my intention is to replace the entire brake system when I upgrade the engine and suspension on this car so it doesn't make sense to make a huge investment in this car as it is now. So for the naysayers, it's temporary, chill out. Either way I hope you enjoy this video and that it helps you if you find yourself needing to rebuild a front brake caliper. It is a cheap alternative IF your piston isn't all corroded. BTW it's not likely your piston isn't going to be all corroded. Good luck.

It's a high resistance circuit that's on all the time when the vehicle is running, the heater elements go from being very hot to very cold in the winter time, I suspect these heat cycles eventually wear the elements down and as a result they eventually fail. No matter what the cause a quick check of the heater circuit can save you a lot of trouble down the road so the next time you run into an O2 sensor heater failure code I suggest you do this quick check before replacing a sensor. You might also want to check out the article that I wrote above for more information on O2 sensor operation and why they use a heater inside them.

How Oil Pressure Works - EricTheCarGuy http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Here is the second offering from last weeks set of videos. The most important thing to note with this is that oil pressure is not created by the pump but rather the resistance to the outlet flow of that pump and part of that resistance is the clearances between the bearings and the other parts inside the engine.

Yes this is the one I put the engine in TWICE. It's not back for an engine thought it's back for a speed sensor code as well as harsh shifting and a bouncing speedometer needle. This is a fairly common problem on Hondas but in this case there was come corrosion that came into play. I don't want to give away too much though so you're just going to have to watch the video to get the details on that. I hope you find this video useful, in fact I believe you can use this method on other makes to help verify a speed sensor failure.
