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 clean a throttle body and Idle air control valve (iac)
*** PLEASE READ *** In this video demonstration, I show how to get to, remove, clean, and replace the throttle body and idle air control motor (aka IAC) on a 4.2l ford motor. This procedure is the same for any fuel injected vehicle. * * * Check out my website krkvideos.com * * * The vans require removal of alot more stuff just to access the throttle body. A dirty IAC can cause a rough idle. A dirty throttle body can harm performance and cause rough engine operation. When the throttle body or iac is removed a new gasket must be used to properly seal the connection to the intake. GM idle air motors are generally mounted on the throttle body and can be cleaned without removal from the throttle body. This means one less gasket and a lesser chance of creating a vacuum leak. The ford throttle body had a note on it that said it was not to be cleaned because the coating on the throttle blade might be damaged. Thats fine for a new car but that has to be disregarded when working on something that has some miles on it. Subscribe to my channel. * * * Definitions: * * * MAF - Mass Air Flow sensor - Monitors the amount of air the engine is intaking. IAT - Intake Air Temperature - Measures the temperature of the air the engine is intaking. IAC - Idle air control - Controls the amount of air the engine is intaking while it is idling. Throttle body - Responsible for regulating flow of air into the engine as you press the gas pedal. TPS - Throttle position sensor - Tells the computer how far you are opening the blade in the throttle body so it can add more fuel to compensate the added air. * * * Visit krkvideos.com for more! * * * * * * Visit krkvideos.com for more! * * * * * * Visit krkvideos.com for more! * * *

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.





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.

Homemade/DIY Vacuum Leak Smoke Machine Tester by Mark
Visually locating a vacuum leak on your vehicle's engine can be difficult if not impossible. Building a smoke machine can help you in detecting the smallest leaks.





Diagnosing and replacing a faulty EGR valve with a vacuum leak.
My vehicle (a 1991 Chevrolet G20 van 350/5.7) was experiencing rough idling and shuddering at stop lights and very poor fuel economy. My check engine light had been on for months. Usually I ignore the light it for a while, assuming it is an O2 sensor, but after pulling the code I discovered there was a fault in the EGR system. The valve was operating when manually depressed, but would not function under normal driving. Upon removing the EGR valve, I discovered a vacuum leak and thought I'd share how I diagnosed it. It is worth noting that the "thumb test" I describe in the video could be done with the valve still bolted to the engine. I did it with the part removed for easier viewing. Replacing this part may be harder on other vehicles. I've seen other ERG valves with Exhaust connections to worry about. Luckily for me, it was very easy on a Chevy 350... just a vacuum hose and two nuts to remove it. @MrJimBonham Ultimately, no... Replacing didn't fix my idling issues. The shuddering / rough idling at stop lights continued, but I did notice smoother acceleration after replacing the part. The busted ERG diaphragm meant it was never engaging when it should have (at higher speeds, not stops). I've read a bad EGR can take a toll on your fuel economy as well, so I'm glad I found this leak, even though it wasn't really the one I was looking for originally. I eventually found another leak elsewhere, on another vacuum line leading to the accumulator. All said and done, I'm glad I found this leak (albeit somewhat accidentally), because with both leaks now fixed, I'm getting smoother acceleration AND better idling at stops. I replaced my O2 sensor around the same time (I'm told they die slowly, sometimes not setting a code, but not operating effectively for a while before they die and set a code). I can't say for sure it it was the vacuum leaks, the O2 sensor, or both, but I'm getting better MPGs now. Either way, if your EGR is behaving as described in this video (popping back when it should hold vacuum), it needs to be replaced anyway, because it is affecting your engine in ways you may not even notice.
