This was a 4.0L Jeep Wrangler that was towed to me that had thrown a rod. The back of the Jeep was covered in oil. It was splattering oil out of a hole in the oil pan. You can even see part of the connecting rod sticking out of the oil pan. I wanted to rev it up and scatter it, but the vehicle didn't belong to me and the owner didn't like the idea!

Why Crack Smokers Shouldn't Install Car Batteries
I didn't do this. I saw this at work today. Someone previously had
trouble installing a battery in an Acura TL. They put cigarette lighters
between the battery hold down and the battery. If you smoke, don't hate
me. I smoked for about 15 years before I quit.
Bearing Making Noise? Fix it Before This Happens!
Thanks for watching. Please comment, rate, subscribe, and check out my
channel for automotive repair how-to videos. This is video of a Ford
Explorer / Mercury Mountaineer that lost a wheel on the interstate. The
vehicle had to be making some serious noise for a long time before the
wheel finally let go. The caliper bracket was all that was holding the
wheel on until it broke. The people in the Exploder should be glad the
thing didn't flip or hit any other cars. Next time you're riding down the
road look at the car beside you or coming towards you. This could happen
to any poorly maintained vehicle at any time. Be careful out there.
How to Repack Trailer Wheel Bearings DIY
During the recent flood in North Georgia / Metro Atlanta, My Dad's flatbed
trailer was completely submerged under deep, muddy water for an extended
time. The brakes, bearings, and electrical connections were damaged and /
or corroded. This video shows how to clean and repack the wheel bearings.
Hopefully, soon I'll upload the video of all I did to the front axle,
trailer brakes, etc.
Engine Running NO OIL - NO SUMP - Seized Soild on Camera
Messing with a Mitsubishi Lancer
There are loads of videos where people run an engine at full rev with no
oil in it, and the engine seizes.
Running it a medium rev, I wanted to see how long it would run with no
lubrication, and I was surprised.
However if the car was driving and the engine was under load, it would be
dead in minutes!
Full size Chevy van engine AMAZING blow up scatter 4.3 v-6
This thing blew the freak up! It threw 2 rods and the pistons out of the
bottom, and KEPT on running until it finally locked up the other 4 rods!
Amazing blow up for sure! The other good part about this..
It used to belong to my boss. KUDOS to the one at the throttle for not
getting scared and letting off when it scattered!
My engine threw a rod
...my engine threw a rod
Alright because of a number of users claiming that I was "revving the
motor" I felt like I should explain in detail what happened. So many assume
that because the car was performance oriented that that makes the owner
drive like an idiot.
Anyway my old motor (original stock motor) was having to many problems and
I decided to get a newer used motor. I wanted a jdm swap but didn't have
the money and needed the car running again asap. I instead got a used motor
from a local salvage yard (moraine auto parts). I had just picked up the
car from the shop that day and was heading straight to work when this all
happened. The shop switched my painted valve cover out (which I thought was
nice) thats why it looks like its the same motor as before but its not.
Anyway I'm driving along and I notice the engine noise is getting louder
and sort of whining sound. Obviously we know what happened now because of
the video but when the rod actually blew I nearly crapped my pants. I was
in the middle of highway traffic and could have lost control etc and died.
The aftermath is I towed the car right back to the shop, missed work that
day, and a friend picked me up. The shop inspected the motor and called me
the next day and told me the reason the motor went bad is because the
intake side of the head wasn't getting any oil. After another motor was put
in and I came to pick it up they let me see the one that blew up. I'm glad
I didn't have to pay for the second motor replacement or labor again. They
called the salvage yard and bitched them out pretty good for me LOL.
I come to find out later that this salvage yard is very bad. We aren't
talking a reputable place like Hmotorsonline etc. The engines just sit
outside on the ground or back in a "barn" all year long out in the rain and
snow. Thats what they call "fresh".
Jeep Cherokee 4.0L Ticking Noise?
-Please Comment, and Subscribe-
Justins Jeep Cherokee started to make a horrible ticking noise. We couldnt
figure it out, but eventually we did. So do you think that you will know
just from hearing it? Its been awhile so heres what happened. The OBX
Header came with a intake/Exhaust
gasket and it was a cheap quality gasket so never use it. It got blown
apart into pieces and that sound is a Exhaust leak. We got a Felpro gasket and hasnt
had a problem since. Thanks for Watching!!
Who needs rods?
this is a video of my friend Joe drifting his 240, throwing a rod, then
drifting some more. lol.
How a 2 stroke detroit diesel engine runs
I have a couple videos of my 2 stroke detroit diesel powered pickup here on
youtube, and I have gotten hundreds and hundreds of questions about how in
the world it runs, and lots of people who do not believe that it really is
a 2 stroke. So, I'm sorry, I don't have the best voice in the world, and
I'm not the best at explaining things or getting the right words to come
out, but I did my best in this video to try to give you an idea of how it
RIDING in the 750hp LSx Willys Jeep
It's been a LOOOONG time since a ride along has put such a HUGE smile on my
face, as silly as it may seem, riding in this Jeep is more intense and
crazy than a 1800hp TT Lambo (although a different kind of fun), it's
almost like an amusement ride that tries to scare you. Hop onboard the
750hp Procharger & Nitrous Express
powered LSx Willys!

Cleaning Catalytic Converters With Soap and Water -EricTheCarGuy
This is my second attempt to clean a catalytic converter, this time with
soap and water. I've heard this method can work so I thought I would give
it a try. One that that's important with these techniques is to do the
procedure properly. On both my first attempt with this one and my last
attempt with lacquer thinner, I didn't do the procedure properly and as a
result I was not successful. I speak to those points in the video. So, if
you have a catalytic converter code and it's not all broken up inside, you
might consider trying this technique. You really don't have anything to
loose if you do.
