Inspection - This is our brother Gregg's Car neon. The water pump seized and blew the timing belt. We decided to take it all the way down to the head because there was some question that a valve had bent as well. But other than a TON of carbon, it turned out to be OK. more at http://www.reinsmith.net

How To Torque Cylinder Head Bolts - EricTheCarGuy
Well this was a fun one to make. I believe I covered everything but if you
feel I haven't please let me know in the comments below as well as any tips
you might have to add as well. I'm not trying to make a big deal about
"pound feet" or "foot pounds" I'm just trying to put that out there, the
important thing is that you get the proper torque and get the job done
right in my opinion, what you decide to call it is up to you.

2002 Dodge Dakota - Odd drum brake issue
We're trying to diagnose a problem where the left rear wheel is
overheating. The mechanic that original did the brake replacement has had
this 4 times and still can't come up with the cause. If you listen closely
you can hear the scraping coming from that wheel. You might also be able
to notice the wobble of the left as compared to the right.
So this is an interesting case...
The backplate on the rear drum brakes ended up being the cause of a very
annoying scraping sound.
I say it was very annoying because it took us almost a month to find!
The reason it took so long is because the sound was deceiving
At first it sounded like it was coming from the front. Which led to us to
inspecting and replacing the front brakes (which needed to be done anyway)
After doing the front brakes you could still clearly here the scraping
sound, possibly even worse than before, anytime you would drive by a
highway divider or something that would reflect the sound back at you.
So finally, after standing in the parking lot and having my brother drive
the truck around so that I could hear it from the outside, I was able to
tell it was coming from the back driver-side.
To make a long story short we still had difficulty figuring out what was
causing the scraping sound until finally we put the truck up on jack stands
and ran the wheels to hear where the sound was coming from
the backplate was bent in such a way to cause it to scrape against the
so you need to put your headphones on to listen to this video and you can
hear the sound that I'm talking about
