This Chevy Impala with the 3.5l engine came in today with a dead battery, a long crank time, misfiring, no tachometer and a message being displayed on the the dash "Engine Hot A/C Disabled" and the check engine light is on. It has codes P0118, P0335 and a code P0326 stored in it. Let's see what the heck is going on with this thing!

    here in california rangers in the state parks tell people to bring tarps while camping. lay tarp on the ground and drive your car on to it and wrap it like a present. the squirels are chewing through the wires and stranding people.

    What advice about vehicle repair would you give to your 19yo self if you saw him now??

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim A says:

    You are one hell of a great mechanic, Eric. What did all this analysis cost? Sell him some mothballs too. No shop vac???? And I thought ford put their PCM in a stupid place!

    Where the hell does this guy live? Oh yeah, NY, rodentville USA LOLOL

    There is on a Subaru I believe where the ECM tracks the crank sensor the cam sensor wheel speed in a few others to determine whether off-road or a misfire and interestingly enough when you first fired the car you had no RPM and on the dash it also said beware of icy roads so it may have tripped a similar code in the ECM because it affects how advanced retarded. And if the engine runs hot it will disable the AC. So all things considered it is pointing to the ECM. And considering you had injector wire control damage there may be more in the harness. You should probably sell him a battery.

    Hi Eric, love your videos learning a lot. I'm just a in home garage guy. I'm hoping if you ever get a 2012 ford fusion, I'm struggling with doing the rear shocks. It's not hard just tricky. don't have a lift just a floor and jack stands. I could use some tips. Thank you. keep up the good work.

    Hi,
    I am working on 2004 Jeep Liberty with 3.7L that is running rich on back 2 only, spark plugs are not wet with fuel but black, replaced them with new once, the Compression test is good, injectors are at 14.5 OHM, I replaced the ECM with a good used AND programmed it to the vehicle, I can hear a strong vacuum going in through the air intake hose, but smoked the intake manifold but tested good no leaks. It is taking such a long time for the code P0175 to flag. Fuel trim is over -30%.

    Hannah isn't learning mechanics for cars but mechanics period and tools. In medicine a huge number of tools is used so when she knows what you need before you need it it would be the same in surgery where the surgeon asks for a tool she will know mechanically which tool is needed as the human body is much more complex than any motor car with a computer and all its wiring. Has the same type of circuits and instead of cooling and oil it has blood which cools, fuels, and the nervous system is the wiring.

    Do they make a tape to stop a homeless guy from spitting on your windshield and using his sleeve at a traffic light and then asking for a dollar?

    So after handling that tape I suggest you don't pick your nose or rub your eyes. And use a soap not a detergent to wash your hands. Soap is an alkaline detergent isn't

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Getz says:

    Mr. O . you should be taking pictures to document that so when a guy says hey how is it going? You can show him.

    I just found this channel a little bit ago, I am amazed at your knowledge! “Got to start somewhere “ this has stuck with me. I don’t have the wire diagrams to pull up, I work on buses, but current has to go somewhere! I’m enjoying your channel! Keep it up!

    I really like these cars with the 3.5 great cars from what I've heard…

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J Mabs509 says:

    Had the same issue on my 04 trailblazer. Chased my tail, 3 hours in I went next to wiring harness, sure enough broken wire!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Storm says:

    Two words; Shop Vac! You should always vacuum that puppy out before continuing. Get the crap out of your way, get any fecal matter, fleas, etc. that the vermin left behind gone before you evaluate things further. It always helps to see what you're dealing with. The rodent tape is a great idea though!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Beilman says:

    Where’s the shop vac ?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars nash69ish says:

    That mouse was smart. He chewed the wire that won't allow the car to start. It like he knew he would be toast if the car started.
