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.

2001 GMC Sonoma 2.2L Engine Replacement (Part 1) -EricTheCarGuy
Link to full version of the video: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/vmanuals/22-vmanual-store/236-2001-gmc-sonoma- 2-2l-engine-replacement-video-full-version As some of you know this job had a personal connection for me. My friend Ryan Coffey, who was the former owner of the truck, lost his life to cancer last year. His parents brought me the truck and a new engine so that I could make it run again. I was honored to do the job, and make this video series for you. I present this series as a tribute to Ryan and his family. I know you guys like watching my engine replacement videos, and I'm glad to know that this series will get some views and get Ryan's name out there. Ryan loved my show and having his truck featured in my videos, it's been in 3 before this series came out. I think this is a great way to honor him and his memory. Here's some some links to those videos as well as other stuff you might find useful.

Torquing Wheels and Why It Is Important - EricTheCarGuy
This is a quick tip response to my disc brake video. A very observant viewer mentioned this important fact that I forgot to put into the original video so I will correct that here. Wheel torque probably accounts for at least some percentage of persistent brake vibrations. Thanks to BigBlockMustang for pointing this out, and thank you for watching. I've recently gotten to the 100 subscriber mark and hope to do something special for you in the not to distant future. If you have any show ideas please post a response to this video or send me a PM with your questions. BigBlockMustang's channel http://www.youtube.com/user/bigblockMustang Something I found recently found that might be of help is this torque chart for different manufacturers. http://www.discounttire.com/infoCenter/infoWheelTorque.html --- 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





Modified Cars, a Technicians Point of View
I was actually asked this question over at the forum the other week by georgelv1999. It seemed like a great idea for an ETCG1 video, Modifying Cars, a Technicians Point of View. Keep in mind that I actually thing that modified cars are cool, I just don't like to work on them as a technician. In many ways I feel like, if you made the mess, you can clean it up. It's always difficult to work on something that someone else has worked on. It's even more difficult to work on something that's been modified by someone else. You just don't know what they did or how they didi it. I look forward to the discussion on this one. In fact, here's some useful links to that end that were mentioned in the video.

Solving Cold Start Problems 1999 GMC Jimmy -EricTheCarGuy
A friend of mine brought me this 1999 GMC Jimmy stating that they were having trouble starting the truck when it got cold outside. Of course the day they brought it to me it wasn't cold. Because of that, I had to look for possible causes of the problem. In this video I cover the basics of what I check in a situation like this. I did find something, be sure to watch the video to see what I found. Here's some useful links for you.
