How To Test Your Car Starter
In this video, you will learn how to test your starter real simple before
taking your starter to the auto parts. you will learn all three steps:
Solenoid, Motor and Overide Clutch testing. the goal of this video is for
you to understand the function of the different elements that make up the
starter and to help you diagnose starting problems with a more accurate
approach. video done by Jesus Cabrera of Chabot College MCOM 61.
Servicing/rebuild your starter motor
When most starters quit, they only need a clean-up of water or oil
ingression and carbon dust deposits, their brushes and commutators are
New starters cost hundreds $ and any parts could be hard to find. Servicing
them with a bit of creativity could save you some money. Brushes could be
somehow extended but the commutator segments have to be long enough.
Brushes could be as short as 5.5mm not 55mm, my slip.
Do maintain electrical separation between the baseplate + housing + 2 bare
wired brushes (ground side) and cable terminal + 2 insulated brushes +
armature coil (battery positive terminal side).
Total service time on this starter: 1 hr

Astra Turbo - Rocker Cover Gasket Renewal
My first video, it's a bit slow and boring. But was a good test.
On an engine with hydraulically adjusted valve clearance, the rocker cover
gasket may never get changed in routine maintenance.
The gasket on this car hasn't been changed for 120,000km's and was leaking
New gasket = cleaner engine bay :)

good understanding of how to do it. or at least whats involved.

head gasket kit
new head bolts
new coolant reservoir

for me it was better than buying a new car...

Instrument Cluster Light and Domelight Replacement/ LED Conversion on 98 Saturn SL2
This video was a fun one to do. You can use this as a video on replacing
the standard bulb that goes into the socket, or you can replace them with
LED's! Recently ran across a few threads on a popular forum for Saturns
about putting in LED's. Thought this was a good idea. I got my bulbs from
superbrightleds.com. Below are the part numbers:
74-CWHP3 Mini Wedge Base - for the instrument cluster
RL4410-CWHP9 Rigid Loop Festoon - Domelight
I kind of skipped over the removal because there was another video already
made. Props to Richpin06a for a great instructional that helped me. link

How to Test Head Gasket
** Please see my other videos on this topic* Thx!
This video is intended for those who would like to know how to confirm a
damaged head gasket on a vehicle prior to making the decision to invest a
lot of money for repair. My apologies for the camera focus- next video I
will pay closer attention, but the information needed is viewable. Further
research should be done on the risks of overheating to the engine block and
such. This video is meant to simply show a 'how to' on the test method I
used quite often when professionally working on vehicles, the results of
which are based on chemistry and industry-standards of the time (1990's).
I hope you find this video useful. RI.
