HID startup II

Starting and warmup of a Philips 35 watt D2R Automotive Xenon-Metal Halide HID lamp with the reflector removed. This type of lamp is commonly used for headlights in luxury vehicles such as Mercedes, BMW, or Lexus. Automotive Metal Halide lamps are commonly called "xenon lamps" due to the presence of xenon gas used to fill the arc tube. The xenon gas allows these lamps to provide a minimally adequate amount of light upon startup. If this lamp was filled with argon instead as is commonly done in street lamps or other stationary HID lamps; it would take several minutes for it to reach full brightness vs 30 seconds.

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.

The Basics of Car Audio Speaker Replacement -EricTheCarGuy
I've done a lot of work to my 1993 Acura Vigor lately and I've been driving it a lot more. One thing I began to notice was that the stereo just didn't sound all that great. I suspected blown speakers. I pulled one of the door cards and found out my suspicions were correct. So I measured both the front and rear speakers and went on the hunt for some replacements. I made a video of the installation and included some basic tips that I believe will work for most vehicles. So if you're looking to upgrade the sound quality of your ride, you might find this video helpful. Comments, tips, and suggestions welcome.

Decarbonizing Your Engine With Water -EricTheCarGuy
I get asked all the time about using Seafoam or other products to clean an engine. Granted, those products if used correctly do have their place but with something as simple as a cup of water you can decarbonize your engine. The thing is DON'T USE TOO MUCH! You can actually damage your engine if you put too much in so be careful. That said, on a fully warmed up engine a couple of squirts of water in the engine can break up carbon deposits in your engine. Just before I rebuilt the carburetor on the Ford I decided to perform this procedure and make a video about it. It's a cheap effective way to clean your engine. Like I said though, don't use too much or you'll be putting an engine in. Camera: Brian Kast The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com Related videos.

How To Diagnose and Replace a Rear Caliper Using an Infrared Thermometer -EricTheCarGuy
How To Diagnose and Replace a Rear Caliper Using an Infrared Thermometer shows how to use an infrared thermometer to find a bad caliper. This method will also work on front calipers as well. Earlier this year ScannerDanner was visiting the shop and after we came back from a drive in my 2004 Honda Element, we smelled overheated brakes. The smell seemed to be coming from the right rear caliper. Upon further investigation, using an infrared thermometer, I found that that caliper had seized up and needed to be replaced. I've done brake videos like this in the past but never went through this particular diagnostic procedure to figure out what the issue was. It's a method you can use for many other mechanical issues as temperature diagnosis is something that is used throughout the service and repair fields. It's a fast and easy alternative to taking things apart for diagnosis. I hope it's able to help you should you run into similar issues with your own vehicles.

How to retrofit Toyota Matrix headlghts with xenon HID LS460 projectors
Here is a DIY video of Toyota Matrix headlights retrofitted with high end Lexus LS460 xenon projectors. Our Website: www.advancedlites.com





Xenon-Vision Bi-Xenon HID Install
Here are a few things to keep in mind: 1. There is NO need to disable the Daytime Running Light (DRL) module if you have the Bi-Xenon HID kit. The reason being that the DRLs will run off the low beam and will not flicker as I initially thought. If you have the non-Bi-Xenon (no HID hi-beam), then you WILL have to disable the DRLs (from what I understand). 2. If you happened to have disable the DRLs, it is likely that your interior dome light will not work, as was my experience. No idea why the DRL module is connected to the dome light but I'm not a Toyota engineer. 3. There are two things that look like grounding wires in the kit ... they actually are not. They are connected to the battery terminals. The wire coming from the two fuses go to the POSITIVE terminal while the wire coming off the control unit go to the NEGATIVE terminal. I unscrewed the nut that helps tighten the clamp around the battery and then placed the wire in between the clamp and the nut. 4. The clips only fit one way except for the one on the ballast. You will see in the video how they should connect but the red wire should go to the POSITIVE terminal. 5. There is a metal bar in the front of the car with holes in it. Run the wiring through that to ensure that the wires don't melt on the radiator or get caught in the fan (that would be bad news!). 6. Lay your wires out to get a sense of how things connect together. 7. It is normal to have one of the original headlight wiring harness not connected. All in all, the install is very easy. I did it in about an hour and a half but if I knew what I just wrote above, it probably would have taken 30 minutes. Hope this help anyone that is installing the Bi-Xenon kit in their Yaris! If you have any questions, please quote this post and I will do my best to answer them for you. Cheers llcooljayce PS. This is a bit of a rough edit job ... I'm no Sony Vegas master ... yet.
