1999 Tahoe HVAC Head Unit Replacement - EricTheCarGuy
Welcome back to another episode of ETCG where we boldly go where we haven't
before, taking apart the dash on this 1999 Chevy Tahoe. To be honest it
was easier than I thought, if I were to do it again I would try first
cleaning the switch and if that didn't work I would just replace the switch
for the problem this truck had. I'm learning things here too you know.

Fix It Right! - Evaporator Core Replacement (S1E5)
Demonstrated on a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.7L V6 4WD.
In this video, we demonstrate the process of removing everything that
covers the HVAC airbox on a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which essentially
involves having to strip the dash down to the firewall.
Essentially, this video differs from our previous videos in that in this
case we show a job that isn't really safe to attempt by most DIYers and
should be taken to a professional, and we show why it's best left to the
Removing the entire dash of a vehicle is an intensive process that should
not be attempted without extensive expertise and a comprehensive set of
tols, including AC recovery equipment and specialized tooling as necessary.
This process requires the disabling and disassembly of critical safety
systems such as airbags. AC work often requires certification - in the
United States, the Clean Air Act's section 609 mandates certification for
working with automotive AC refrigerant. Since this is a task best left to
professionals, only an overview of the process is shown without getting

About the "Fix It Right!" video series:
"Fix It Right!" is a series of how-to videos intended to give
do-it-yourselfers basic instructions on proper vehicle repair and
maintenance. All of our videos show real repairs being performed on real
vehicles by real technicians in a real auto shop. (Repairs are filmed and
shown with the permission of the vehicles' owners.) Although there may be
more than one way to perform any particular repair (and in many cases there
are lots of ways!) we try to focus on the methods that will be safest and
most expedient for DIYers with limited access to tooling and equipment.
We will also occasionally be showing repair processes that are too complex
or dangerous for DIY, or require specialized tooling, expertise, equipment,
and/or certifications. Those episodes will highlight the importance of
hiring a professional auto technician for tasks that are not DIY-friendly,
and demonstrate why such tasks are best left to professionals.

Mystery of the Gurgling Heater Core
The heater core on my 1998 Dodge Ram was gugrling air on startup, sounding
like a percolating coffee maker when I would start the engine in the
morning. I approached the problem by purging the system of air and then
searching for a cause after that. The heater core was noisy but it never

Car Heater Not Working - Troubleshooting Repair Tips
When a car heater doesn't work, the most common cause is low coolant. When
troubleshooting to try and repair the car heater, check the coolant ONLY
when the engine is cold. That's because removing the coolant cap on a hot
pressurized system can result in severe burns. If a cooling system is full
and there's still no hot air coming from the vents, there could be air
trapped in the system. A Lisle coolant funnel can be used to burp air out
of the system if the pressure cap goes directly on the radiator in your
system. If the pressure cap is located on the reserve bottle and not the
radiator the Lisle funnel will not help. The bottle in that case does the
same thing as the funnel as explained in the repair video. However the
Vacuum fill system by FJC can be used to fill cooling systems and
eliminates air being trapped by using vacuum and the coolant is drawn into
the system. The link to our car repair article with more tips and tools
mentioned in the video is here -

Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This video is part 1 of the replacement of a water pump on a 5.7L Chevy V8.
This video will apply to many other makes that use this engine such as GMC
as the engine in this video has been used for many years by GM. I feel
it's a job that just about any DIY could do with the right set of tools.
The video also covers the diagnosis of the faulty water pump as well as
purging the air out of the cooling system when you're done. One last
thing. I know the Check engine light is on, it's a catalytic converter

Go to http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAF14558A66A160F9 for more of
our DIY auto repair videos!
The Message Center on the dash of my 2000 Chevy Suburban was displaying
'Service 4WD'. The message would come and go. There was no error/trouble
code set in the truck's computer when I used an OBD-II reader. This video
shows you the quick (5-10 minutes), effective and inexpensive (approx. $50)
fix for this problem.
Materials Needed: Transfer Case Control Switch (GM Part# 19168767). I
ordered this part from www.GMPartsDirect.com. I have ordered several parts
from them and have always gotten the best price and prompt delivery. They
stock genuine GM parts.
