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!

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.
Brake Rotor Worn Down to the Vents
This is a short video of a Ford Expedition with some neglected brakes. The
vehicle was driven with brakes grinding metal-to metal until, not only the
vents were contacting the pads, but the caliper pistons were hyper-extended
so all the brake fluid came out. If your brakes are making noise, don't
wait until you can't stop to check them. Subscribe to

World's Worst Intake Manifold Coolant Leak
The Chevrolet/GMC 4.3L & 5.7L CPI Vortec engines had a horrible problem
with the plastic intake manifold gaskets cracking around the coolant
passages. I've replaced many of the gaskets and a few manifolds on various
vehicles. This was the absolute worst lower intake manifold gasket coolant
leak I've seen in a long time. It was a Chevy S10 Blazer with a 4.3L. I
removed the power steering/AC bracket and the EGR valve to get to the leak.
Otherwise it was just water running out under the compressor. I had my
camera with me, so I thought I'd share the video.
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!
How long will an Engine run without oil?
I recently found this dusty VHS tape of a test I did for an Engine Oil
Additive company. In the early 90's, I tested this friction reducing
additive. The product was actually pretty good but the company is not
around any more.
I had to edit it this way because some scenes showed/named the place that
allowed me to perform the test & donated the car. We ran the product in the
engine for a 1/2 hour, then drained it & ran it without oil. We actually
placed bets on how long it would run.... times ran from 10 to 51 min. The
engine ran the full 51min at about 1000-1500 rpm. Since the the last time
on the betting chart was met, we then revved the P*** out of it till it
went up in smoke. 56 min of total run time & the last 5 were at high revs.
She put up one hell of a fight!!!
**** obviously DO NOT run any engine for any amount of time with out oil
2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine Noise (4.0L) - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This was a strange one, a little more than a week after I put a starter on
this engine it comes back with this horrible engine noise and I decided to
investigate. I wasn't able to find the source of the noise and later in
the day after they took the Jeep back the engine apparently let go for
good. My friend then sold it to someone with a salvage yard and I haven't
been able to get hold of him to find out what happened to it. I hope I'm
able to track down the new owner and find out what the deal was with it and
post a video response when I do, till then I'm afraid it's going to remain

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!
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".
Cash for Clunkers- 1990 Chevy Astro (throws a rod)
this is the first real 'clunker' that i have had to do. it did run, albeit
poorly and smoking a lot. the camera dude doesn't speak much English, he
helps out around here sometimes. i believe he about shit his pants when it
threw the rod.
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
