How To Find A Vacuum Leak - EricTheCarGuy
Vacuum leaks are one of the biggest causes of engine performance problems. This video is pretty straight forward in it's approach to finding a vacuum leak. On thing I might mention is that not all vacuum leaks are at the engine. Some HVAC systems run on engine vacuum and can cause a leak under the dash in some cases. I've even seen vacuum operated door locks. Just be sure to be careful spraying flammable stuff on a hot engine, you don't want to take one problem and make it a whole lot worse. You can also use a spray bottle with water to do this same test. It may not be as effective, but you don't have to worry about spraying a flammable substance on a hot engine.

How To Perform A Leak Down Test - EricTheCarGuy http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ At long last I was finally able to put up a leak down test video for you and the really good news is that I will be replacing the engine in this truck and I hope to shoot some video of the process, I also hope to be able to take apart the old engine to examine the fault that caused the excessive compression loss in this engine so keep your eyes out for that. --- 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.





Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this video in response to it. There are many different configurations of throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts store. One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle (DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this procedure if you're trying to correct a problem with a sticking throttle. If you have idle problems, I recommend you check out this article on my website. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/solving-automotive-idle-problems The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com BowlingBalOutl's channel http://www.youtube.com/user/bowlingballout Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy?fref=ts Twitter: https://twitter.com/EricTheCarGuy Google+: https://plus.google.com/100195180196698058780/posts Information on Premium Membership: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-streaming-etcg-content 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.





Paintless Dent Repair Using a Heat Gun and a Can of Compressed Gas Duster
Can you repair dents in an automobile with a hair dryer and a can of compressed air? Yes and no. It depends upon the location and severity of the damage. But as I have demonstrated, with a heat gun, $9 worth of Endust Duster, and about 15 minutes, you can achieve some remarkable results. Read more at... http://blog.yagelski.com/2011/10/paintless-dent-repair-using-heat-gun.html Responses to the most common criticisms: Q. Why didn't you just push the dent out from behind? A. This is a hybrid vehicle and there is A/C equipment for battery cooling that is located between the sheet metal and the interior finish. The dent was simply not accessible from the inside. Q. Why didn't you just use a toilet plunger and pull the dent out? A. That may have worked on the larger of the two dents, but the surface area of the smaller dent would have made that impossible. Q. This video and photos of the dents have been Photoshopped and faked! A. Absolutely not. I will gladly attest that this video and the images of the dent, before and after, have not been retouched. I also have a witness who observed the process and would attest the same. Q. "Tapping" the panel like you did in the video would have popped the dent out without the heating and cooling. A. My attempts to pop the dent out with persuasive tapping by hand and a rubber mallet prior to the heating / cooling did not have any impact. Q. This process didn't help, you can still see the dents! A. Yes. if you look closely you can still see the smaller of the two dents. However, the larger of the two is not distinguishable to the casual observer. This process made a significant improvement to the appearance of both dents. It is not a factory perfect repair, but this is not a valuable vehicle either. I could not justify the expense of a professional body shop for a vehicle that is seven years old and +150,000 miles. This process provided a good alternative.

How To Perform a Compression Test - EricTheCarGuy
Compression Testing and What You Can Learn From It - EricTheCarGuy Here is a video on performing a compression test on an engine to assess it's mechanical condition. An engines ability to compress air and fuel is directly proportional to it's performance since an engine is nothing more than an air compressor once you take away all the controls. A compression test is a good general test that will give you an idea of the engine's overall health but it does not give specific information on what the problem is should there be one, for that a "leak down test" would be required, here is a link to that video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgrfT0LFMhc However if you find yourself looking for the source of a performance problem with an engine, this is a great place to start. This test is often overlooked in favor of looking at the fuel or ignition system, I think that's a mistake, if an engine can't perform mechanically no amount of electronics will make that better. Recently, I hit the 500 subscriber mark and I'd like to thank all of my subscribers past, present, and hopefully in the future for that.

Diagnosing a vacuum leak in intake manifold
Here I performed a 'propane test' but using Throttle Body cleaner instead --Carb cleaner is supposed to be equivalent. Be careful, this is FLAMMABLE. Have somebody look at the RPMs (revolutions per minute) in the tachometer while you spray carb cleaner (pointedly) in suspected areas of the intake manifold. In this case, I started with One, (uno -1) at the firewall, driver's side of the air intake and proceeded clockwise in 10 total spots - the last 6 correspond to 'the intake runners' where spark plug boots enter the engine. The principle is that flammable carb cleaner is taken by a suspeceted vacuum leak as you spray, and then it proceeds into the intake plenum enriching the gas:air mixture and increasing the engine speed, thus moving the needle in the tachometer. Once again be careful with flammable mineral spirits. -.-. - The problem turned out to be a broken vacuum chamber or vacuum reservoir (typically found in Mazda Mx6 2nd generation) where vacuum is 'stored' to be used by the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculaton) Valve. Replacement of the vacuum chambers or reservoirs fixed the problem.
