How NOT to remove your engine.
Subscribe to my channel, I'm always posting great videos!
About this video, I know this is a bad idea. There were some idiots on the
turboDodge.com forums suggesting that
this was a good idea. I needed to get a blown motor out of my car, so I
setup the camera and demonstrated exactly what can go wrong with this
method. Honestly, I tried to get it down gracefully, in the end I guess I
was lucky it didn't knock the car over in the process. Let this be a lesson
to all, use an engine crane. At least in cars where it's not designed to
come out the bottom.

Failed motor swap
I finally got my sr20det motor swap finished after several months of work,

4 cylinders, you can hear the knock at just over half of the video, I
purchased this motor from jdmenginescorp.com, do not buy from them!!!
Subaru Impreza 10000 RPM engine
Takhle vypada subaru motor kteremu upadne ventil v 10000 otackach. - This
is Subaru engine, broken valve in 10000 RPM. This was not poorly tuned, EGT
and AFR was right, Problem was in material of one of the Cosworth valves,
there was air bubble in it and it broke apart. This was not one shot as you
think, this car was running few months before this and it is running again
fine after repair. But we changed manufacturer of vents :-)

Used Car Scam (The Today Show)
Today Investigates the Nation's biggest used car scam.
Buying a used car? Don't just take the seller's word about the car's
You can use a car's vehicle identification number (VIN) to get information
including whether the car is stolen or has been in a major accident or a
Since Jan. 30, consumers have been able to research cars through the
National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS), a program of the
U.S. Department of Justice. The online database includes information for
about 73% of the country's auto population, gleaned from state agencies,
junk- and salvage-yard organizations, and insurance companies.
Currently information from 38 states is available, and all states are
required to fully participate by Jan. 1, 2010.
Visit nmvtis.gov, click on one of the listed providers and follow the
prompts. Expect to pay between $2 and $4 for a report, because the
authorizing law required that federal funds not be used for this database.
Used-car reports from commercial companies, like Carfax and Experian's
AutoCheck, have a higher price tag but draw information from a wider
variety of sources.
A single report from AutoCheck costs $14.99 (unlimited access for 60 days
costs $24.99) and includes information from all states as well as from some
sources not found in the NMVTIS database.
When buying a used car, you need to verify the VIN so you are not a victim
of this scam:
Here's How to Find Your Car's VIN
Locate your car's unique DNA - its unique vehicle identification number.
VINs are normally located in several locations on a car, but the most
common places are:
- On the door frame/door post of the front doors (usually driver's but
- On the dash near the windshield
- On the engine itself (machined pad on front of engine)
- On the car's firewall
- In the left-hand inner wheel arch
- On the steering wheel/steering column
- On the radiator support bracket
There is a chart that gives further information (by car line) on both the
location of the VIN plate and which character in your VIN represents your
year of production and specific engine on a used car website, but they have
limited the listings to only import cars since those are the car lines in
which they specialize.
Alternatively, you can call the consumer relations department for the
vehicle manufacturer or visit a local new car dealer and ask for the
location of the VIN
It is often etched into multiple locations on any vehicle.
Bad Spark Plug
Bosch Platin F5DP0R BUSTED (new)
I want to share in this video what a bad spark plug CAN look like. I have
another video with the sound the engine was making when this plug (1 of 6)
was installed. I brought the car (2000 Audi S4) to 2 different shops who
both suggested replacing all of the lifters in the 30 valve engine (Audi
2.7T) as the sound was so similar to stuck lifters. Fortunately, I
eventually diagnosed the problem myself and saved thousands. My main
goal of this video has always been to help others avoid similar situations
in the future by highlighting one way in which spark plugs (of any variety)
