How to Rebuild a Turbo - Part 1 of 2
Rebuilding a td05h 16g turbo. This
process can be applied to many journal bearing turbochargers. :) It definitely comes in handy to
know how to do this when you are in this type of hobby.
4/25/12: Small explanation on the balancing of the rotating assembly since
I get so many comments regarding it. This particular turbocharger, td05h, has its rotating assembly
components balanced separately. This means each individual part (compressor
wheel, turbine wheel/shaft) gets balanced separately. This allows for easy
interchangeability of parts in case they need replacing. This is why I am
able to install a td05 20g wheel on this turbo without having to balance the entire
rotating assembly. THIS IS NOT THE CASE FOR ALL turboS OUT THERE. You need to research whether
your specific turbo (if it's not td05h)
was balanced as an assembly or "component balanced" like I explained above.
I hope this information helps. Good luck in your projects. Stay Boostin'

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
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

Volkswagen TDI - Dieselgeek EGR delete install
This is a step-by-step instructional video showing how I installed a race
pipe and EGR cooler delete kit from Dieselgeek.com on my 2002 Volkswagen
Jetta TDI. Written instructions were not included in either kit. This mod
did trigger a Check Engine Light after about 12 miles of driving.
The race pipe and EGR cooler delete kit together ran me exactly $169.01

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
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.

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 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.
