Jeep throws a rod

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.





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.





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 youtube.com/roadragecustoms. Then fix it yourself!

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 a mystery. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.





Attempt to Drive the Jeep Grand Cherokee With Blown Engine
Well I had to try and move the jeep with the blown engine, let's see what happens!





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 ****





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 *UPDATE* 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".





Ever thrown a rod? how about a block?
HUGE engine explosion at a tractor pull event. the block is literally blown out of the engine bay and lands onto the ground next to the tractor. as far as catastrophic faliure goes, this is as bad as it gets.
