Best Head Gasket Sealer For Headgasket Leaks
http://www.trustmymechanic.com/auto-repair/4345/head-gasket-repair-this-wor ks/ (visit my site for more tips) Did your mechanic tell you your car has a headgasket leak? I get TONS of questions like this everyday and many of them are NOT head gasket leaks. I made this video to help you determine if you DO or DO NOT have an internal coolant leak. The FIRST, FIRST, FIRST thing you need to do is get a cooling system pressure test. This fast and cheap test will help you determine if you have an internal or external coolant leak. If you are absolutely sure there are no external leaks, and the radiator is not restricted and the electric radiator cooling fans are working, then try this awesome sealer. The product is called Engine Block Sealer, made by K&W. They have the old version in a hard metal can and their new and "improved" version in a green plastic bottle called Nano Technology. Both seem to work just fine. I do not personally use the product as the instructions on the can say (been using it my way for years with a 75-80% success rate and its much easier) My instructions for using K&W Block Sealer are: 1. Drain out all coolant from radiator as you possibly can. 2. Get a bucket and mix up the block sealer with tap water 3. Pour contents of the bucket into the radiator, top off with tap water 4. Then put 500 miles on the car as soon as you can 5. After 500 miles drain out the mix and reinstall coolant and water as needed The seal should be permanent You will NOT have boil over or freeze protection during this time period so please keep the engine from freezing and overheating. And no, I do not remove the spark plugs or the thermostat as the can says.. Just the steps above. Hope this helps, visit my sites for more cool tips and information http://www.TrustMyMechanic.com http://www.MyHonestMechanic.com





How To Perform a Compression Test - EricTheCarGuy
Compression Testing and What You Can Learn From It - EricTheCarGuy Here is a video on performing a compression test on an engine to assess it's mechanical condition. An engines ability to compress air and fuel is directly proportional to it's performance since an engine is nothing more than an air compressor once you take away all the controls. A compression test is a good general test that will give you an idea of the engine's overall health but it does not give specific information on what the problem is should there be one, for that a "leak down test" would be required, here is a link to that video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgrfT0LFMhc However if you find yourself looking for the source of a performance problem with an engine, this is a great place to start. This test is often overlooked in favor of looking at the fuel or ignition system, I think that's a mistake, if an engine can't perform mechanically no amount of electronics will make that better. Recently, I hit the 500 subscriber mark and I'd like to thank all of my subscribers past, present, and hopefully in the future for that. I enjoy making these videos and the fact that you seem to like watching them means a lot to me.
