Popping Noise from Strut

There is a strange popping sound coming from my new struts and new bearing plate when I press down on the car. Its worse when going over speed bumps. Sounds like something is going to fall off. I tightened everything and 3 mechanics have tighten things down and it still is like that.

Replacing struts
Struts can sometimes be a little scary. That is unless you have the right equipment. They are really pretty simple for the most part. However be sure to use a spring compressor. Here is an example on a Honda. Other vehicles will be basically the same

How to Find a Bad Wheel Bearing - EricTheCarGuy
How to Find a Bad Wheel Bearing - EricTheCarGuy Well as I said in the video I shot this some time ago but never posted it. I've been snowed in for a couple of days so I haven't been to the shop to make some new video so I decided to bring this one up from the vault. The idea is to give you some basic information on how to find a bad wheel bearing, replacing it once you find it is another story but diagnosing is the first step. Now, another way to find out if you have a limited slip is to jack up both sides of the car and rotate one of the drive wheels. If the wheel on the opposite side moves in the same direction you probably have a limited slip differential. If the wheel spins in the opposite direction you probably have a regular differential that is not limited slip. As I said in the video a bunch of times be careful doing this, use the parking brake and brace the rear wheels with something. I know you'll do the right thing.

Bad control arm bushing? Clicking sound. Volvo S80
Does anyone know what this sound is? 2004 Volvo S80. Happens whenever we engage the gear. I am thinking its the lower control arm bushing, they look bad. But then there's a plastic housing connected to the front wheel. When I grab it with my hand, the clicking feels like it may be coming from there. Any idea?





Replacing Honda Front Struts - EricTheCarGuy
Replacing Honda Front Struts - EricTheCarGuy After posting the last video on replacing struts I thought I would post this one next. I shot this along with the rest of the Accord front end work that I did last fall. A couple of things are different, the most obvious is that the springs are a much smaller diameter so you really need to be careful when you work with these since the spring compressor doesn't have as much to grab hold of. Second, when you install the struts back on the car care must be taken to get the notch on the strut lined up with the wishbone, if you don't do this the upper wishbone bolt will not go in since it has to fit in a groove on the back of the strut. For the second time I've shown you that I tighten the lower wishbone bolt with the car off of the ground, the fact is I shouldn't do this since I'm told it may ruin the bushing that goes through the lower control arm. I believe this to be possible but I have not experienced any problems doing it this way. For me it just seems like a pain in the butt to try and reach around the tire after I've put the wheel back on. But for those of you that like to point out my faults here is my excuse for not doing it the "right" way. --- 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 --- Be safe and 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.

Bad head gasket symptoms, Head gasget bad? Easy way to check- Chevy Uplander
This is an Easy way to check for bad head gasket(s). This video shows Co2 gases entering a vehicles cooling system due to bad head gaskets. This is what can happen when you do not change your vehicles Antifreeze every 2 years with composite head gaskets. The other problem I have seen is that with steel layered head gaskets the cylinder head looses it seal to the engine block over time and starts leaking between the layers. I have seen some vehicles with as low as 32,000 miles a lot of vehicle around 80-100,000. Probable cause two different metals (aluminum heads on a steel engine block) and two different rates of expansion and contraction. Some symptoms can be thermostat, misfire and 02 sensor codes, bubbles in cooling system, heating problems, oil slime in coolant tank and or radiator, low coolant levels, leaking, split or blown out radiators, leaking water pumps, intake gaskets leaking oil and or antifreeze, catalytic converters that are inefficient or clogged, oxygen sensors that quit working properly and spark plugs that are coolant fouled. If the problem has gone on for long period of time and the gasket(s) is deteriorated enough and the antifreeze is now entering the combustion chamber, then you might have other symptoms of white smoke out the Exhaust and antifreeze mixed in with your oil. Dealers used to say Maintenance Free, Change your Antifreeze every 5 years or 150,000 miles. Now they say 30,000 miles, which for most of us is about 2 years. Huge difference. Be mindful of these symptoms and remember to Find and fix the cause not just the symptom. This video is of a 2007 Chevy Uplander, 3.9 Liter with 52,181 miles.
