Checking for vacuum leaks using home made smoke pump.
Inspired by Scotty Kilmer and refined by me. My 1993 Ford F-150 has some issues like lack of power, poor gas mileage, slight rpm surge at high idle, and 6 of the 8 plugs are showing really lean burn, also ocasional overheating while driving. Any Ideas?

Episode 11: Finding Vacuum Leaks
Finding Vacuum Leaks with Home-Made Smoke Machine





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.

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 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. For more information on diagnosing engine performance issues, check out this article I wrote. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/solving-automotive-performance-issues The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com 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.
