cylinder leak test how to check for bent valves
i did this video to help some of you not get ripped off when buying a motor.
i will be doing many videos of how to test parts and what to look for. please email me if you have question or what to learn how to test something else email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
a 4.6L with a bad head cold.
bad EGR, bad cats, and a dirty MAFS.. with no Exhaust after the resonator..
1991 Honda Accord Rough Idle
This is a video I uploaded for diagnostic purposes on cb7tuner.com. I think it's an ignition problem. Could also be a bad tank of gas (as it happened right about a day after I filled up). Or a combination of both. Suggestions are welcome! New phone has HD Video. Might post some Exhaust videos later.
8th Gen 07' Civic LX CAI Problems
I just installed a cold air intake and now it's puttering, not running right, and dying. I've checked the intake and nothings blocking it. Also I've disconnected the battery cables to reset the MAF sensor and then let it idle for 10 minutes to let it adjust to the new air flow but that still isn't fixing it. ANYONE HELP ME PLEASE!!
Honda Accord Engine Noise.AVI
Just purchased 1993 Honda Accord SE Coupe. F22A6 engine with 348,000 KM's (216K miles). Valves recently adjusted but no difference to clatter. Engine runs fine; plugs proper colour; decent oil consumption but too noisy. Similar to other Accords of this vintage, so maybe typical of this genre.
1994 Honda Accord w/ Bent Valve
A video illustrating how your 94 Accord's engine will probably sound if it has a bent valve. Bent valves often happen in cars containing intereference engines, such as this particular model of Honda. They occur most often when the timing belt breaks during operation of the engine. This is an expensive repair, requiring the engine head to be dismanted. To avert this disaster, change your timing belt every 90k miles or sooner. This particular car had about 178k miles on it at the time of the video. There was a bent valve in cylinder 2, and the cylinder lost all compression.
Gsr b18c1 bent valve or need valve adjustment?
After a short pull from 60-90 mph my car starting bogging.
1. i thought it was the spark plug so i swapped it out. ran better but still shitty as hell.
2. Checked timing when i got home, it was about a tooth or two off. I'm sure it jumped timing
3. re-did my timing, now it runs better but still has misfire revving pass 3k.
4. its also making noises that wasn't there before, not sure if it's a sign for bent valve or need valve adjustments? any help would be appreciated.
5. also, while it warmed up, i took out spark plug #4 and it was boggin like it wants to die, also with #3, while #2, and #1 didn't do anything? i did research and it says if nothing it could be signs of bent valve? lmk.
H22a4 Bent Exhaust Valves
Just to clear up a few misconceptions, this is the sound of cylinder #2 bent Exhaust and intake valves. Not rod bearings, rod knock, or anything else. I paid to have the head rebuilt with all new valves, seats, springs, and retainers.
It sounds the way it does because a piece of a broken drill bit wedged itself in between my Exhaust valves and seat. It runs perfect now and I've put 13,000 miles on it since.

Spark Plug Well Oil Leak Fix, Honda Accord - EricTheCarGuy
I know I've promised this one for some time so here it is. If you have this problem I recommend replacing the seals in the valve cover first and then coming back to recheck for oil in the spark plug wells in about a month or so, if you find oil then I recommend performing this procedure. I can't stress enough how important it is to make sure everything is lined up correctly when you reinstall the rocker assembly, bad things can happen if you don't.

HONDA ACCORD 7TH GEN BENT VALVES???
ACCORDING TO THE COMPRESSION TEST THERE WERE THREE CYLINDERS COMPRESSION LEVELS WERE LOW WHICH ARE 1,2, AND 5 IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, AND THE RESULTS CAME OUT AS 70,75, AND 110 PSI RESPECTIVELY, CAUSE BY OVER REV
Honda Accord Misifre CodeP0301 P0302 P0303 P0304
Have misfire codes on your Honda? P0301, 302. 303...and so on. Honda's ECU cant tell which cylinder isnt contributing so do this quick cylinder ballance test and find out which COP is not sparking.
Radial Engine Test Stand Run Backfires
Here's all the video I got of our fun project. The test stand is a mix of parts put together over the years to mount different engines on.
This engine is a 9 cylinder Pratt and Whitney R-985 Wasp Jr. from the 40's. It had been sitting in storage for years. We convinced our instructor to let us mount it and run.
It took awhile to get the magneto timing figured out. The day we ran it I did one last check of the timing, but failed to check that my top-dead-center indication was on the compression stroke.
So, soon as the backfire occurred, i realized what I had ommited, quickly pulled the mags off, re-found tdc, and got the timing right. it started up quickly but a bad oil pressure line kept us from running it more that day.
In the week following, it ran great many times. Our smallest guy in class even started it by hand propping. Sadly, no good videos were taken.
It was a great experience in A&P school. After this we did turbines and got the j-34 in my other video running.
