    The old s/10 2.2L was just as bad. Had to remove a dozen things for a simple job.
    To remove the 2nd or first spark plug i cant remember which, you had to remove the ac compressor. To move the ac compressor you have to remove the belt. To remove the belt you had to remove the fan shroud. To remove the shroud you had to remove the intake tube/box thing that covered the shroud. To remove that you had to remove the top radiator hose.
    All if that to access a single spark plug.

    Lovely assistant. You don't need another one.

    Sheba is a very beautiful puppy.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffry Blackmon says:

    I'm anxious to watch part 3…. after a little break. You're a patient guy, Eric, as you took that engine doen to the timing chain.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffery Arnold says:

    Haha

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lee Carroll says:

    You would have been money ahead to pull the engine. You gotta love GM engineers/designers, somehow I think they have a hard on for mechanics. I'm done.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Leif Nilsen says:

    You need to try Milwaukee M18 Fuel Rachet and 1/2 stuby impact. OMG you would love using that on working on the vehicle. Way faster and better than air tools. Far quieter. My son and I plus many co-workers use it in the shipyard all day.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sam Pantiliano says:

    Why I will never own a GM product or Dodge for that matter. Ford trucks and German engineering.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Gibson says:

    can anyone tell me where is south main auto is please let me know and the phone number thinks

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jose cavada says:

    Good.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Clint Helling says:

    I don't know if it will work on gas engines or not but if you take a breaker bar over to frame rail. May need pipe to extend bar. Have someone tap the.key. Breaks the snout loose a Duramáx anyways.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars phillip mckinney says:

    That fkn Chain was fine

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mzimm460 says:

    Im serious when I say this only fans please for your wife not you

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mish Jish says:

    I really like your videos papi, and the mamacita that appears in the video with you.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    Very good Case Study Eric O Thats interesting is the system really that Sensitive on these older colorados hmm 🤔 @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Hanna says:

    18hours sheesh

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars hassan mroue says:

    Had the same problem and same code. Vvt solenoid fixes problem every time?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kent Sr Gain says:

    follow your gut, larger problems have been fixed with simpler answers

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jimmy Mullins says:

    What brand wabble sockets are you usin? Thanks

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jimmy Mullins says:

    Would the 3.5L I5 engine be about the same? Thanks

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Camaro Drag Racing Second Generation says:

    Must have been a Ford engineer or a Dodge engineer building Chevys now.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dependable Auto Truck says:

    this is getting good hope its not a oh ono

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dependable Auto Truck says:

    would a in cylinder pressure transducer tell if the cam was opening to late and tell chain stretch. i haven't watched the rest of videos yet. i know one time Ivan found stretched chain with transducer

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars glmoore001 says:

    Note to self, never buy a Chevy Colorado…

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kenneth Brown says:

    Eric, we have a 2004 Chevy Colorado. It does a nose dive at around 2100 – 2300 rpm under moderate acceleration. The codes just to list a few are:
    U1000
    C0055
    C0244
    C0268
    U1064
    P0014
    P0327
    P0335
    P0336
    P0621
    If you feather the throttle you can keep it running. It starts fine, idles good but has appeared to lose power and performance. Any clues what to do? KB

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Miller says:

    The struggle is real

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Gardner says:

    All you need to do is reset the computer so the timing matches on the cam and crank after replacing sensors.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mohamed Ahmed says:

    The STRONGEST TIGHTEST crank pully ever, period.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Crawford says:

    I can’t follow the voodoo mathematics on the chain length/degrees of rotation equation.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim Gruver says:

    Another piece of shit design by fucking high paid so called engine design professionals. What a fucking joke. Make some pos engine CHEAP AS POSSIBLE and screw the buyer over with " so very highly reliable " engine design EVER!!! Fucking idiots

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Remember how simple the chevy luv was in 76 and the s10 was in 81 with the isuzu engine and when it began loosing it power you sent it cause there was no fixing the isuzu and after seeing what your going through I wont want any of them to fix that's for sure

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    You may as well spit it out it's over engineered you cant begin to fix it till you've taken every engineered ideal out of the way first you probably should have started at the oil plug it takes the same amount of time lol

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Old Geordie Geezer says:

    All very interesting, but did you look at the vehicle with the bad oil pump? Was it a bargain??

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paublus Americanus AMERICANUS says:

    To take this valve cover off this Colorado is as rediculous as I used to think about Ford pickup spark plugs. If this was done in a Chevy shop this would be 2000 dollars.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paublus Americanus AMERICANUS says:

    Four years from now you never use this office space fluorescent light. To me this would still be perfect with your shiny bright led magnetic.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William England says:

    In glad I've retired absolute joke Chevy/ GM Vauxhall UK the same don't think of mechanics to repair these cars build standards nowadays is abbismal should not be called engineers

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Negron Negron says:

    You talk to much lol

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Crawford says:

    Just about the time the furnace stopped running and I could hear your commentary my tinnitus kicked in.
    Guess I’ll have to watch it again!

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hannes W says:

    I know this is an old video. Re sensitivity: The old chain is 0.4% longer. To put that in perspective: a bicycle chain is considered "bad" at a stretch of 0.5%. Of course you can continue to use the bicycle chain, but it will excessively wear down your sprockets and then you have to buy a new casette and chain rings in addition to your chain, because the chain slips over the cogs when you pedal 😉

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Crawford says:

    Sorry but you lost me with your correlation between the chain length and the waveforms. (???)

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Crawford says:

    Holy Chrismas! It would have taken less time to pull the engine.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bo Elliott says:

    Just wanted to be the one guy who defends this engine …. my lowered single cab 2.9l (basically the same as 2.8) 5 speed manual with possi welded rearend and caltrax for traction has 313,000 miles on it and it lives at 5,500 rpms lol 😆

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rob522 says:

    I guess the Ford Ranger was really built 'Tough' I have a Colorado myself with a skyjacker lift, but damn come to think about it, I've seen many rangers still going strong, and it's rare to see an s10 or an old colorado still running on the streets. Unless it's a new colorado.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Russell Dilworth says:

    Hi Eric, Was wondering why u just didnt put the engine round on her timing marks after u pulled the cam cover off!!?…..instead of all that balony of counting teeth and getting all confused..cos u will also have sprocket wear that ur calc's will not account for and it would be a hell of a lot quicker…cos the crank sprocket's alignment mark will show up very clearly if there was any stetch on the chain/sprocket wear due to the crank sprockets ratio being 2:1 with the cam sprocket!!…and of course u will see the discrepency because u see the wear over the entire chain length including 3 points of contact(2 cams and 1 crank) with sprockets.
    Great video and diagnosing all the same,,,im sure u cant think of every possibility when the camera is running!!! lol

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donnie Robertson says:

    Second time watching 5/23/2020

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alexis DeVille says:

    Terrible design by Chevrolet engineers to make that repair so time consuming! I think pulling the engine would b faste.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ULTRA MAGA PIMPERNEL says:

    You just convinced me that I will NEVER own a Chevy Colorado!

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars scott gaydos says:

    OMG I laughed so hard when you described how you know when an oil pump goes bad! Your videos are great.

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vicente Bianchini says:

    I have an 05 Colorado ext cab, but same motor as this one, 280 k miles on the clock, rides very good and just take about a quart of oil between oil changes (every 4K). I use as a work truck and i"m very happy with it, when it hits 300 k I might get something newer, but I'm even considering getting a newer 3.5 or 3.7 with low miles. Very little expenses thru these 280 k miles
