What is VTEC and How Does it Work? - EricTheCarGuy
 
02:21
VTEC or Valve Timing Electronic Control is a system that's been used by Honda in passenger cars since 1991. I believe the 1991 NSX was the first production vehicle to get this system. It has since been used in several other Honda vehicles. Late model VTEC equipped vehicles use the iVTEC system which also changes cam timing as well as lift and duration. The system is designed to give you the 'best of both worlds'. You get to switch between 2 cam profiles. One for fuel economy, one for performance. A lot of people think that when VTEC kicks in you get an extra boost of power. Not true in my experience. It does however extend the torque curve to give you more performance after it does switch over. There is no set RPM where VTEC switches. The computer looks at several variables and calculates when to activate the VTEC solenoid. It's a cool system and for the most part rarely has issues. The most common issues I've seen with VTEC are the result of low, or incorrect oil viscosity. So if you have a VTEC engine, keep the oil topped off and make sure you use the viscosity listed on the oil cap. The animations are courtesy Honda Motor Company, thanks guys.

How To Perform a Compression Test - EricTheCarGuy
 
10:00
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. I enjoy making these videos and the fact that you seem to like watching them means a lot to me.

Torquing Wheels and Why It Is Important - EricTheCarGuy
 
02:42
This is a quick tip response to my disc brake video. A very observant viewer mentioned this important fact that I forgot to put into the original video so I will correct that here. Wheel torque probably accounts for at least some percentage of persistent brake vibrations. Thanks to BigBlockMustang for pointing this out, and thank you for watching. I've recently gotten to the 100 subscriber mark and hope to do something special for you in the not to distant future. If you have any show ideas please post a response to this video or send me a PM with your questions.

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.

How To Find A Vacuum Leak - EricTheCarGuy
 
05:56
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 Bleed A Cooling System - EricTheCarGuy

How To Bleed A Cooling System - EricTheCarGuy Kind of a request, I've described this procedure a few times in print but never made a video. As I said in the video if your having issues with a fluctuating idle, no heat, or an overheat problem you may want to start here. Also, if you have just serviced the cooling system in any way this is the procedure I recommend to fill it back up. The only regret I have with this one is the end where I didn't shoot footage of closing up the radiator using the tool that I used in the video, I may show it at some point in the future.

How To Diagnose Exhaust Restrictions -EricTheCarGuy
 
06:12
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ If you're experiencing poor performance, overheating, pinging, or having trouble getting up hills you might want to check to see if you have a restricted exhaust. An engine needs to breath which means that not only does it need to take in air but it also needs to get rid of the spent air, much like we do when we exhale. If it's not able to do that properly you'll experience all kinds of performance issues including lack of power. This video shows an easy non obtrusive way to check to see if you have an exhaust restriction using a vacuum gauge. A vacuum gauge can tell you a lot about how your engine is running including if you have a restricted exhaust. If you do find that you have a restriction you can confirm it by either dropping the exhaust at the manifold or removing an O2 sensor and taking it for a drive. If it runs better you likely have an exhaust restriction. Don't assume it's the catalytic converter though as I've seen mufflers and exhaust pipes cause restrictions as well. Here's a video on how to check your Catalytic Converter should you suspect it's bad. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VZ5K8n5jj0&feature=youtu.be Stay dirty ETCG Discussion about this video: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/kunena/18-The-EricTheCarGuy-Video-Forum/42701-diagnosing-exhaust-restrictions#43854 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 Parasitic Draw Test - EricTheCarGuy
 
16:51
http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ This video has been a long timing coming and is one of the most requested things I get is about batteries going dead overnight so I'm very happy to finally bring you this video about the process of finding a parasitic draw which is a small drain on a battery above 50ma when the vehicle is shut off. Once you find the right fuse(s) the next step is to trace the components involved in that circuit till you find the source of the draw, you first start with a wiring diagram to give you an idea of where to start looking and then start unplugging things in that circuit to isolate the cause, it's quite scientific really a simple process of elimination. Here is a link to BBB's site that you can use to look up wiring diagrams for your application. http://www.bbbind.com/tech_database.html Good luck and if you have anymore questions check the database on my website and if you don't find what you're looking for there then post your question to my forum, here's a link. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx --- 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 --- Be safe, have fun, and 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.

What Happens When You Don't Change Your Oil?
 
02:56
A lot of things happen to your engine when you don't change the oil. None of them good. In this video I highlight what happens to the rubber seals in your engine if you go extended periods between oil changes. I was able to repair this 2002 3.5RL by replacing the valve cover gaskets and cam seals. However, there still may be issues with some of the other rubber seals down the road. As I said in the video, this effects all the rubber seals in the engine, not just the valve covers. It may seem obvious, but be sure to change your oil on a regular basis to avoid the same fate.

The Basics of Disc Brake Service -EricTheCarGuy
 
10:19
This might seem like pretty basic information but it is important and often overlooked. If you have noisy brakes you might want to try this. Also, if you feel your brake performance isn't as good as it could be this might be something you could try. It's also a good idea to do this to your vehicle every so often to make sure things are working as they should. This can prevent sticking caliper slides as well as the noise I mentioned. The Honda service interval is about every 30,000 miles. I think that's a good number to start with for servicing brakes. Here are some useful links for you.

How To 'Top Off' Your AC System
 
16:14
Sometimes your AC system might not be working as good as it should. Sometimes this is due to a low system charge. In this video I walk you through the steps of topping off your AC system to get it to cool better. Keep in mind the pressures in this video may not be the same as what you might see on your vehicle. The pressures are dependent on the system your working on, the relative temperature, and relative humidity. **Note** This is not likely to work in all situations. Also, be sure and follow safe procedures when working with refrigerant.

Salvage Yard Tip: Don't Be a Selfish Tool!

**Sponsored Video**While I was at Pull-A-Part in Atlanta, we decided to make a video about 'salvage yard etiquette'. I had a ton of fun with Erik Tande of Velosity Labs making this video. Most of this is common sense, but you'd be surprised at how often you see this bad behavior in the salvage yard. So next time you're at the salvage yard, try and keep these helpful tips in mind. If you're not familiar with Pull-A-Part, they're a self service salvage company in the US. They have 25 yards in 12 states.

Front Disc Brakes and How to Replace Them - EricTheCarGuy

Well here you are after many requests for this one it's finally here. I shot this last spring but I've been saving it for you as a special present. In this episode we go over the principals of operation and replacement of a basic front disc brake set up. It all starts with a shaking steering wheel and ends with new brakes. I think this is a pretty good video overall and gives the important information you would need to perform this task yourself. A couple of notes. I didn't have time to go over how to isolate a brake pulsation between front or rear in this video. Also, I had a very easy time of getting these rotors off, I can assure you that this is not often the case, I could probably do a video just on removing difficult rotors alone. I may do a video on that in the future as I collect some different scenarios for you. --- 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 --- The Blog http://ericthecarguy.blogspot.com/ And you can always leave your questions and comments for me to answer here as a video or text response, I'm here for you after all.

How To Test Relays- EricTheCarGuy How to test relays is a video about just what it says. Every once in a while you need to test a relay and when you do it's important to check it thoroughly, if not you may think it's good and it's not, just because it 'clicks' doesn't mean it's good because that's only part of the equation. Yes you can swap it out with a known good relay and that will save you time but if you don't have a known good then this test should do the trick for you. This video is also a good way to get to know what's inside a relay and how it works so if you're curious about that this would be a good video to watch.

Things You Should Know About Differential Gears
 
04:00
I made this video just before assembling my Ford 8.8 differential. I thought it would be a good idea to cover some of the basics before I dove into this part of the build. One of the most important take aways from this whole thing is the difference between face hobbed, and face milled gears. They are set up differently and if you don't know what you have, you could make a lot of time consuming mistakes. he best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com Camera: Brian Kast Thanks for watching!

How to Set Ignition Timing, Acura Integra - EricTheCarGuy

How to Set Ignition Timing, Acura Integra - EricTheCarGuy This is kind of part 2 to the video I did on replacing a distributor on an Acura Integra. Whenever you replace a distributor on an engine like I did in that video you will also need to reset the ignition timing. I did my best to show you the operation in real time but the camera really didn't like the strobing light so I'm sorry I wasn't able to get you a better picture of that. The most important thing to remember with this is to read the procedure before you get started, if not you may perform it incorrectly and as a result set the timing incorrectly.

How To Safely Lift and Support Your Vehicle -EricTheCarGuy
 
11:00
**Note, I forgot to mention about setting the parking brake or leaving the vehicle in gear when lifting. Chalking the wheels is also a good idea. This slipped my mind during production but keep in mind I have a level floor and I don’t often concern myself with this part of the procedure. I just wish I had put it into the video for those that don’t have solid level floors like I do. Once again the take away is to be smart and careful when you’re lifting a vehicle. If not, you could be seriously injured or killed. I've been asked about doing this video about How To Safely Lift Your Vehicle for some time. In this video I cover the basics of jack, and jack stand placement for working on your vehicle. I can't stress enough how important it is to take this seriously and do this properly. Failure to do so can result in damage to your vehicle, or worse, damage to you. That said, with a bit of common sense and effort you can safely lift your vehicle for access to it's undercarriage.

Please be careful!! While transferring my engine from my engine hoist to my engine stand it fell to the ground. I was fortunate that I didn't get hurt. To be honest, it was completely my fault. I shouldn't have been doing what I was doing during the transfer. In this video I show you what to avoid, as well as what I did to remedy the problem so that it would never happen again. I hope this video helps you if you run into a similar situation. If nothing else, I hope it shows you what to avoid so that it never happens to you in the first place.

Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement - EricTheCarGuy

Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement Sorry I missed you last week, I had this video half done and didn't get a chance to finish. Well we have our 1990 Accord again, I'm getting some mileage out of this one but I don't mind cause there are still quite a few of these on the road and a few of you have claimed ownership to one of these 4th generation Accords, so enjoy. A couple of things to note, I could do a video on taking out the wishbone bolt alone, I've run into a few problems here such as a rusted bolt that won't come out of it's bushing as one example, perhaps future videos will show how to overcome this problem. I thought this one went together well despite the fact that you might be getting sick of Honda Accords, I still have more from other makes that I haven't edited or posted yet. I have more to this video as well that may show up in DVD form at one point, YouTube only gives me 10min to work with but I think that is enough to get you started and not lose interest. Perhaps you could help by submitting questions in the form of text responses or what I would really like is a video response to something I've put out there, that would be great.

iVTEC How it Works -EricTheCarGuy
 
08:07
iVTEC How it Works is a long standing requested video. Back with I did the video on the VTEC explanation I was asked about doing a video on iVTEC which is slightly different than VTEC. First you need to understand the basic operation of the cam shaft, once you have that, and you know a little about how that cam shaft effects performance, you can then begin to understand how iVTEC works. In essence, as far as the Honda system is concerned, it varies the cam 'timing' to optimize performance and fuel economy. Many companies employ similar systems to this but they may perform the operation differently. This video focuses on the Honda iVTEC system. That said, you may notice that the VTEC system on this K series is a little different in that instead of having a cam with a higher lift and duration, it switches between 1 and 2 valves on the intake side. So when VTEC engages on this engine it actually activates another valve in the cylinder instead of changing lift and duration. It still alters cam timing via the iVTEC system however. Once again, to optimize power output and fuel economy. Either way, I hope this video helps with your understanding of camshafts, cam timing, lift, duration, VTEC, and iVTEC systems.

#SalvageYardHack: How To Get Power in the Yard
 
02:07
Say you need to power something up while you're at the salvage yard. Here's a quick easy way to do that with a power tool battery, some wires, and some safety pins. With this set up you can add power to any electric motor to test it's operation or to move a power window like I did in this video. If you're not familiar with Pull-A-Part, they're a self service salvage company in the US. They have 25 yards in 12 states. I'm not just saying this, but they've become my favorite place to go for salvage parts. I suggest you check them out.

This video shows how to use Plastigage to check bearing clearances in an engine. Plastigage can be used to check all kinds of clearances, but engine and bearing clearances are among the most common. Remember there are several different kinds of Plastigage, so be sure to pick the right size for your application. Plastigage is not a replacement for precision measurements, but it can be a good quick check that you can used for engine assembly. In addition to using Plastigage, this video also shows how to use a degree wheel when torquing fasteners.

How To Replace U-Joints 2 Ways
 
14:23
I needed to swap over the yolk from one driveshaft to another. In the process I replaced the U-joint. Since there's more than one way to do this, I decided to show both methods of U-joint replacement I'm aware of. I'm sure there are other ways, but I believe these to be the most popular. Either way, it's a fairly simple and straightforward process. The difficulties come in with the different types of fasteners used. The wax ones can be a pain, but a little time with a propane torch and they should come out fine. The thing is to spot those plastic retainers before you start. Good luck!

Restoring Headlights with 3M Kit -EricTheCarGuy
 
09:43
I've done other headlight restoration videos, one in fact, but when I tried this kit earlier this year I found it to be the easiest and most effective kit that I've used to date. I chose the kit for the drill but if you don't have a drill you can also get the 'human' operated kit. As you'll see in the video that kit comes with a few extra items. Just be sure to mask off the area before you begin work. If not, you might end up with some scratches on your finish. Otherwise I feel this is something any DIYer can do and get great results from.

How Does a Torque Converter Work?
 
19:59
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ In this video I cover the purpose and operation of the turbine, stator, impeller, and torque converter clutch. I hope the explanation and practical give you some insight into how these parts work to not only transfer power from the engine to the transmission, but also how it drives the transmission pump and doubles the torque output of the engine when you take off from a dead stop. I've wanted to make this video for some time. In fact I've had the fans sitting in the back of the shop for almost a year. Now that I have the Automatic Transmission Dissection video under my belt I thought I would add a torque converter dissection into the mix. I hope you enjoy this video and that it gets you a better understanding of torque converter operation. Especially since I killed my air compressor cutting this one in half. Link to compressor repair video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Zz9SKSHxFg Yes this is indeed 'take 2' of this video. I changed a few things to make the information more accurate.

How To Solve Honda Idle Problems - EricTheCarGuy

Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Before posting questions about Honda idle problems please read this: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/8-Service-and-Repair-Questions-Answered-Here/41476-solving-honda-idle-issues-hunting-idle The viewers have chosen and this weeks video will be about solving Honda idle problems. I'm really not surprised as I get a lot of questions and requests about this very subject. Here are the links I promised in the video that will help you address specific issues mentioned in the video. How To Bleed a Cooling System http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUpXgAJ1gjU How to Check for Vacuum Leaks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CPqbaSgcok Reading Check Engine Light Codes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BD05sPclLyE Diagnosing an Overheat http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUzOTnsWImI Hopefully when your done checking all that stuff out you will have solved your Honda's idle problem, if not leave a comment or send me a message and I'll see what I can do just make sure you have tried all the stuff in the videos first as that saves me from typing so much. I also want to add my "Idle Speech" into the mix here: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/8-Service-and-Repair-Questions-Answered-Here/41475-solving-honda-idle-issues-rough-idle   There are a lot of things that can contribute to an idle issue, in fact in the end it may still be there to some degree because of the nature of that engine however here are some things to start with. First start with a good tune up, use NGK or Nippon Denso plugs, don't change the wires if they are OE, if they aren't OE you might consider NGK wires as they are very good and less expensive then OE.  A quality cap and rotor should be good.  A new air filter also helps. Don't change the PCV valve, if you see an aftermarket PCV valve in there put a Honda in, believe it or not I've seen idle issues caused by aftermarket PCV valves, the OE's last just about forever so you can easily justify the expense. Next a good valve adjustment, this goes a long way to smooth out the idle if done correctly, mess it up and things can get a lot worse though. While you have the valve cover off check the timing belt tension, if you feel a lot of slack this can cause the cam to 'chunk' as it spins causing a rough idle.  If you think the belt has been on there for some time then you might consider changing it and resetting the tension properly, if it's not ready for replacement you can reset the tension to take up the slack. DO NOT adjust the idle screw under any circumstances, it is set at the factory and that is the reason it was sealed in the first place. If you find that the seal has been broken and you have a low idle and you have done all of the above then you might turn the screw out a little to see if that helps the idle but only enough to try and bring it back to where it was before it was adjusted in the first place. Last clean the screen in the Idle Air Control valve, this can get clogged up with carbon over time and cause the flow through it to be restricted which can cause idle issues. If you still have a 'rough' idle after all of this THEN look to the engine mounts as you want to be sure the engine is running correctly before you go for those as the one in the back is a real pain to replace. --- 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 --- 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.
