2007 Subaru Check Engine Light Diagnosis -EricTheCarGuy

Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ This 2007 Subaru Outback showed up with a few problems, one of them was a check engine light. The codes were P0137, P0037, and P2096. They all related to the secondary O2 sensor. In this video I show the procedure I went through in order to diagnose and repair these codes. All you need is a scanner and a DVOM. So, if you have a vehicle with a CEL, even if it's not a Subaru, you can use the information in this video to help resolve the problem. Here are some other videos you might find helpful.

2007 Subaru Outback Suspension Noise Repair -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ The Subaru came in for a couple of things. A noise in the suspension was one of them. In this video I show how I diagnose and repair a noise in this 2007 Subaru Outback. It wasn't easy to track down but it turned out that the left rear upper strut mount had come apart and was causing a 'clunk'/'squeak' when going over bumps. The replacement of this mount shows how to compress the coil spring on the strut as well as the replacement of the upper mount. Here are some helpful links if you find yourself dealing with this problem.

O2 Sensor Basics - EricTheCarGuy
This will be the beginning of a series that I'm going to do on computer controlled systems. I've had quite a bit of response to the check engine light video and I think this is the next logical step. I've covered the basic operation of an O2 or oxygen sensor as the basis for closed loop operation. This will probably not be the last time I cover information on O2 sensors, there is so much more to these than meets the eye.

Check Engine Light Basics - EricTheCarGuy
If you have the code you can look up what it means here http://www.ericthecarguy.com/obd-code-lookup Sorry about the camera focus on this one, whenever I use my wide angle lens it tends to do this. Aside from that I have a lot of video shot that I don't intend to post here because of time constraints, these videos will be made available at a later date through the EricTheCarGuy website. I used this video because I didn't have anything else this week that I could use for the show and I like to do at least one a week if I can. I have lots more scheduled so stay tuned in the coming weeks. As for Check Engine Lights they come in all shapes and sizes, sometimes they are easy to diagnose and others can be a bit more challenging. I plan to do an entire series on this subject so don't consider this the last time I will cover this. The point of this video is to familiarize yourself with the basic hook up of a scan tool to read the codes stored in the on board computer nothing more, I got a bit carried away with my O2 sensor explanation and had to cut most of it. Much of what I cut from these will also be available at a later date as a series of "Tips" that may be made available on future shows or on DVD depending on the subject.

ETCG's Air Tools and Compressor
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ I get asked about my air tools and compressor ALL the time so even though I've made a video about my tool boxes I thought I would make a video JUST about my air tools and compressor. One of the most popular of those questions is, "What kind of compressor should I get?", as far as kind that's up to you and what you can afford but I think this 26 gallon is perfect for the DIY. As for the air tools well I used mine every day so I bought the best I could get at the time but consider how you're going to use the tools, if it's just on weekends for your own projects I don't think you need to spend as much to get results that will work for you. I also cover a bit of compressor maintenance as well as air tool maintenance which you might also find useful.

DIY: Reset Check Engine Light without OBDII reader
Learn how to reset your Check Engine Light (CEL) without using an OBD II 2 scanner / reader tool. Will work on just about any car. Also referred to as Service Engine Soon, and Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL). This is very general and will work on any vehicle. Not just on this Honda. If the light does turn back on, go to any auto parts store and ask them if they can read the code on the computer. This is free most of the time and will tell you where to look for the problem. WARNING: Do not attempt to fool the company that gets you your vehicle state inspection. After resetting your computer this way, you will lose logged data. This shows up on their computer and will automatically fail the inspection. The fix? Drive it around for a while, a day or two and you will have the data back. Be warned, if you haven't fixed the issue, the light will turn back on. 2nd WARNING: As pointed out by Sam Cotts, if the problem is not fixed, the light will turn right back on. These videos are for DIY-ers. They are not intended to have professional results. They are intended to have similar effects, at a much cheaper price, and without purchasing professional tools.

Clear check engine light for less than 5 dollars
More Tutorials on my CHANNEL: http://www.youtube.com/user/moccina *This video is an EXPERIMENT I wanted to try on my car, and is for INFORMATIONAL purposes ONLY. This fix is for off-road use. The content shown in this video is not intended to encourage emissions test cheating. I enjoy the process of testing theory because you always learn something new, regardless of the outcome. Using a spark plug defouler kit, I install a "buffer" in between the downstream oxygen sensor and the catalytic converter. Quite often, frustrated car owners get the P0420 code for reasons other than a bad cat. I have heard of people getting the code just because they removed the converter and reinstalled it. It can also happen if you run your vehicle out of gas etc... etc... It is also common for car owners to get the P0420 code, replace the converter, and both o2 sensors-- only to have the code come back after 1000 miles or so. This can be a very frustrating, time consuming and of course-- expensive venture. Here is one way to resolve the issue. Good luck and have fun!





Bad Oxygen Sensor Symptoms and Dangers
Is your "Check Engine Light" on? It may be a bad O2 Sensor. You don't want this to go too long or you'll be spending a ton more in car repairs, namely the Catalytic Converter will burn out, and those aren't cheap. You'll also be wasting gas and have a less efficient vehicle. So get that changed ASAP!





Diagnosing Your Subaru's Check Engine Light
In this video I will show you how to diagnose the check engine light for your OBD1 (1996 and older) Subaru. In this video I am diagnosing my 1993 Subaru Legacy LS Special. Learned how to do this myself and figured I would share to the world how to do it. By diagnosing the check engine light yourself you could save the money it would take to have a shop or a dealer diagnose it, and you can also save money as opposed to buying and OBD scanner which could run a price of up to $100+. The website that I found most useful for trouble codes was www.troublecodes.net. The only few reasons why an OBDI Subaru will have a check engine light are for the following reasons: - The connector to the sensor is unplugged. - There is a grounding problem within the circuit. - There is inadequate power to the circuit. - The circuit is shorting out somewhere. - The sensor itself is shot so badly that it cannot communicate with the ECU. OBDI is different from the OBDII system because in the OBDI system, there are no inefficiency codes or monitors like there are in the OBDII systems. --UPDATE-- My Subaru has been destroyed. I was driving the other night in the snow and a moron in a 4WD Jeep was doing at least 45 in a 25 zone, and he started swerving all over the road and he ended up swerving his passenger side rear end right into the front of my car. After he hit my car, he was going so fast that he continued to slide an additional 40 feet away from my car. My car is totaled, and the stupid ass hole in the Jeep got away with his rear end smashed. The worst part is that I did nothing wrong and now I am out a car. RIP.

Yes I am really thinking about 'hot rodding' the Subaru but I have some work to do before I get there and a lot of money to come up with, unless I find a wealthy benefactor to help out. I also plan to reach out to MCM and get some advice on how to go about making my Subaru al it can be. I'm hoping Marty or Mechanical Stig will have some helpful input on what I should do with this car. Stay dirty ETCG

Well to be honest I have no idea but obviously this car has giving me some trouble lately and it doesn't seem to want to leave the shop. This time it was a FLASHING check engine light that seemed to pop up overnight that ended up being a bad intake manifold gasket. Not sure why this didn't show up when I checked the codes the first time and got the speed sensor code but it didn't. I'm just grateful that it's fixed now and has made it's way down the road. This is a nice addition to my check engine light series though as misfires are quite common in the world of check engine lights. Should you run into a misfire code such as a P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, P0305, P0306, or P0300 I would suggest approaching it in the same way and don't forget to check for vacuum leaks because as you can see in this video they can set a misfire code and cause performance issues.

Honda J Series V6 Valve Adjustment (Part 2) -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnyqVg3nWRk Forum discussion about this video: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/component/kunena/18-the-ericthecarguy-video-fo rum/33925-honda-j-series-v6-valve-adjustment-videos?Itemid=0#33925 Well here is part 2 of the J Series Valve Adjustment video. This is where the 'meat' is and we cover how to set up each cylinder as well as the adjustment itself. Remember this is a 'fine tuning' operation and really isn't meant to correct a problem unless the valves had been misadjusted in the first place. Also keep in mind that it's better to get the adjustment loose rather than tight so try to keep your adjustment on the loose side because if you get them too tight this can actually damage the valves, if they're too loose the worse you'll suffer is a lot of valve train noise. Either way try to do it right the first time because it's a lot of work to get back in there and readjust everything. I think you'll do fine should you attempt to do this job just take your time and double check everything. Here are links to the videos I mentioned in the movie that might also be helpful if you're servicing one of these J Series engines.
