Liqui Moly Diesel Purge on a Seat Ibiza FR TDi PD130 (ASZ)
Carrying out a Liqui Moly diesel purge on a Seat Ibiza FR TDi. Most of the
diesel purge had been used by the time I thought of doing a vid. The can I
used contained 500ml and takes about 20 minutes to be used up cleaning the
injectors and fuel lines with the engine running at various revs. I find
this purging technique WAY SUPERIOR to putting additives in the fuel tank
such as Forte diesel treatment, Redex or Millers Diesel Power Ecomax. Liqui
Moly is a lot cheaper to buy as well.
The engine purrrs afterward and feels a lot better for sure.

Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky
throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this
video in response to it. There are many different configurations of
throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is
sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I
am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states
now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts
One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle
(DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this
procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in
order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this
procedure if you're trying to correct a problem with a sticking throttle.
If you have idle problems, I recommend you check out this article on my

DIY Fuel Injector Cleaning & Repair
This is the end result of a few hours of work and $60 because I didn't have
a 1/4" NPT tap in any of my kits. I could have done this for less-than
$40. The BG products were donated to the cause.
The REASON you want to use 20 PSI is precisely because of how peak-hold
type injectors work. The injector signal sends a 4v spike to open a
peak-hold type injector quickly, then maintains its open condition with
only 1 volt. Really, it's a current thing and there's a longer
explanation, but that's it in a nutshell. When you put the injector in its
operating pressure, it takes more than a AA battery to open it, but you
don't want to sustain that much current with a momentary switch and your
expensive injectors. This isn't in the video because this warning wouldn't
be as clear. Unless you can simulate the injector pulse precisely, don't
try it. 1.5v is enough to open it below its operating pressure. If you
open it and THEN apply pressure, you can flow as much pressure as you can
throw at it.
I don't discourage anyone from getting their injectors professionally
cleaned and balanced, but in my case, I didn't feel that was necessary.
In my first video, I thanked the seller for these injectors and happy to
know I got a great deal on high quality parts. My gratitude is even
greater because I had problems with them. It gave me an opportunity to
help others troubleshoot these kinds of problems when purchasing used
parts. A different idiot might have blamed the seller for peddling crap,
demanding their money back... but that would only be because they didn't
even know what they were looking at.
This particular idiot knows what high quality parts RC injectors are and
how to clean 'em. $250 + $60 still means I saved about $150 on a brand new
set. We all benefit because I bought these and I'm grateful! Let the good
How to clean a throttle body and Idle air control valve (iac)
*** PLEASE READ ***
In this video demonstration, I show how to get to, remove, clean, and
replace the throttle body and idle air control motor (aka IAC) on a 4.2l
ford motor. This procedure is the same for any fuel injected vehicle.
* * * Check out my website krkvideos.com * * *
The vans require removal of alot more stuff just to access the throttle
A dirty IAC can cause a rough idle. A dirty throttle body can harm
performance and cause rough engine operation.
When the throttle body or iac is removed a new gasket must be used to
properly seal the connection to the intake.
GM idle air motors are generally mounted on the throttle body and can be
cleaned without removal from the throttle body. This means one less gasket
and a lesser chance of creating a vacuum leak.
The ford throttle body had a note on it that said it was not to be cleaned
because the coating on the throttle blade might be damaged. Thats fine for
a new car but that has to be disregarded when working on something that has
some miles on it.

How to Properly Perform a Fuel System Cleaning
What I am showing you is the proper way to clean the fuel system of your
vehicle. The vehicle in this video is a 1998 Saturn SL2 with a 1.9L DOHC
engine. It has over 177K miles and is the second time a fuel system
cleaning will have been performed. The last time, I had it done
professionally at a local service center. After 20,000 miles, thought I
would figure out how to do it myself and cheaper.
Items you will need are:
- Seafoam Motor Treatment (or equivalent product)
- Self built intake cleaning hose
Components of fuel system cleaning hose:
- 4ft of 3/8"ID Vinyl Tubing
- 1ft of 1/4"OD Polyethylene Tubing
- 1/2" hose mender
- 3/8" x 1/4" barb connector
- 1/4"x1/8" connector
- 1/4" x 1/8" needle valve
All these items you should be able to find at the local hardware or
plumbing shop. This is just a prototype I have created and will be
refining the design as I go along.
Take the needle valve and attach the 1/4" tubing to one end and the 3/8"
tubing to the other. Use the 1/2" hose mender at the end of the 3/8" tubing
(You will have to force it on because mender is a lot bigger than the
inside diameter of the tubing) as the attachment point of the vacuum line.
I will be using Seafoam Motor Treatment for this video. There are other
similar products out there, but this is the one I have chosen. You will
also need a throttle body cleaner as well. Both of these can be found at
your local auto parts store.
1. take the Seafoam cleaner and separate it into 3 equal parts, or since it
is a 16 oz bottle of this particular cleaner, I chose to separate it this
1. 5oz. for the fuel
2. 5oz. for the oil
3. 6oz. for the intake cleaning.
2. Disconnect vacuum hose from the brake Booster. This is the big round drum looking
thing on the driver side at the rear of the engine compartment.
3. Take the intake cleaner hose you have just put together and attach the
1/2" hose mender to the vacuum line.
4. Take 5oz. and add to the fuel tank. Use a funnel to help keep the
cleaner off vehicle paint.
5. Remove oil cap and pour the other 5oz. in with the oil.
a. This will clean the lower end of the engine.
6. Take the bottle with the remaining cleaner fluid and poke a hole in the
top so that the hose 1/4" hose can fit through.
7. Somehow have it so it is hanging above the engine and that the 3/8"
tubing connected to the vacuum line is straight.
8. Make sure the needle valve is closed all the way and start the vehicle.
9. While running, slowly open the valve and allow a steady stream of
cleaner to enter the engine. Don't open the valve too quickly or you will
let too much cleaner in and may stall the engine.
10. Once the can is drained, turn off vehicle and let it sit for between
a. This will "Hot-soak" the engine and break up the carbon and
tarnish build up.
11. Reattach the vacuum line to the brake Booster. Very important or your engine will
run at higher RPM's and you may not have brakes.
12. During the wait, you can clean the throttle body by removing the intake
hose from your air filter exposing the butterfly valve. Open this valve
and spray in the cleaner. Make sure all surfaces are covered and let this
cleaner sit and break up the build up on and behind the butterfly valve.
a. DO NOT perform this step if you have a Mass airflow sensor.
These are very delicate sensors and expensive to replace. Do not messed
b. If you want to be more thorough, take a cloth or some type
of swab and manually clean off the build up that way it does not get sucked
into the engine.
13. Reattach the intake hose
14. After the wait, start the engine and rev the engine to between
2000-3000 RPM to blow the buildup and cleaner out through the Exhaust. The engine is going to start rough so
make sure you are ready to step on the gas to keep it running.
15. When you see that the smoke is becoming lighter, drive it for about 20
minutes to finish the process of cleaning.
16. You may see a check engine light come on, this is normal. Have someone
scan it to be sure and then erase the codes. It will most likely show
cylinder misfire and O2 sensor malfunction codes. If it is something else
then investigate further.
You have completed a complete fuel system cleaning. It is recommended on
the bottle that you perform this every 2000-5000 miles. I would recommend
every other oil change, or for those that drive a lot, at least twice a
year. This helps maintain horsepower, and fuel
If you have not done this procedure before, it is probably a very good idea
to have this done, either professionally or by yourself.

informational purposes only. If you choose to attempt the procedure shown
today, you do so at your own risk.
How To Clean a Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAF)
Here I demonstrate the simple steps involved with cleaning your mass
airflow sensor. In this particular case I was troubleshooting a rough idle
on a 2006 Chevy Colorado 3.5, but these steps can work for almost any
vehicle. If you have any questions feel free to post them and I will do my
best to help!
Here are some of the codes you might see related to your MAF:
P0100 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Malfunction
P0101 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Range/Performance Problem
P0102 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input
P0103 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit High Input
P0104 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Intermittent
