    If it's fogging up the lense does that mean it's still alive ?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paradise Road says:

    …those burnt exhaust valves usually leave the cylinder a little at a time…like slow cutting torch damage…saw quite a few when I was a cylinder head man about 50 years ago…

    How did you know it was on the compression stroke and not the exhaust stroke?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Oscar Cisneros says:

    Does your scan tool have relative compression function under special functions?

    I got a steal on a yukon because wrech after wrench couldn't find a leaking head gasket!!!
    "Cold miss" is how the owner described it. It hid except for rusty plugs in 6-8. Torqued the head, added liquid glass.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars F Jacks says:

    I'm dealing with a p0301…misfire on number one cylinder, ford's are nortourious with there misfires, but this is a 2017 with less than 30k miles, no way I should be getting this code…changed the plug and coil, no change, engine runs perfect..wtf?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CJ says:

    Nice work. I have a Misfire in my Escape. Still occurs after changing plugs and coils. Ses to me if that didnt fix it, whatever is causing it will be very expensive. Ugh

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob Swanson says:

    Cool video thanks for sharing

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lite Sleeper Music says:

    WHO LEAVES AN OPEN PLATE OF FOOD ON THEIR CAR FLOOR WTF

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lee Lemon says:

    BOOM! You Da Man. I have a 2010 Ford Escape 180K just started to misfire a little. Great research video for me. Thanks

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vann Loc says:

    Any people who own a Ford escape with a V6. Mine is acting weird but it's not throwing any check engine codes. When you first put it in drive or in reverse the idle drops low and it runs really rough, makes a weird noise and it feels like it's going to die, until it starts moving then it runs and shifts fine. And only once you come to a full stop and wait at a red light it will feel like it's going to die again. Any ideas?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben Smith says:

    if you had a camera operator we could see what you were looking at perhaps

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wayne Smith says:

    Yep. Used the camera. Very useful.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ted BURKE says:

    You didn't rotate the engine to the spot where both valves on number 3 should be closed

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alfa Omega says:

    Can you give hand for me I need help with my car

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dugie555 says:

    Great diagnostic! Thanks for taking the time to explain the little things.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dan diegidio says:

    Mine has the v6. That looks like a dream to work on

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jim ramsey says:

    Could a lean injector burn the valve?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gregory Wisnasky says:

    Have 07 ford escape 3.0 200k miles now an then back fires thru intake no codes

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NDIrishfan71 says:

    I have a 2015 Ford Fusion SE 2.5l engine misfires periodic. I replaced all 4 ignition coils, plugs, and now all 4 injectors. Still having the issue when driving. I may have to take it to Ford because it mudt be a short, or PCM issue. I know thid much Ford will never sell me another vehivle after this pos!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom C says:

    I have a P0301 on a 98 Integra Type R, and already went through spark plugs, leads, entire distributor replaced with a known good, fuel injectors to fix a rich condition (replaced all 4), and did compression test (210psi all 4 cylinders) and did a leak down on Cyl 1 for shits and giggles and it's perfectly sealed. Checked Cyl 1 with a boroscope as well, very clean inside, nothing to note, looked at the valves, the piston and cylinder walls. I don't feel any misfire when driving at all, but without fail it sets a code every 10-40 miles, depending on how it's feeling that day I suppose. I'm beginning to suspect a lightweight flywheel to be the cause (9 lbs instead of the stock 16 lbs) but really don't want to go down that road yet, since I believe it would throw random misfire codes or all 4 cylinders, not just Cyl 1. Anyone have any ideas I may not have thought of yet? I should also mention, not burning any oil or coolant, engine was rebuilt about 7 years ago.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rufus Connolly says:

    Unfortunately for you (and the rest of us who work with our hands) Milwaukee tools are little to no better than the cheap jank you find at Hazard Fart.

    Hey I have a Mazda Tribute 2.0L it runs rough at idle and wants to die then it will eventually stall but runs fine on the highway please help

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars a2cryss says:

    Good thing that valve chip was on the near side to the spark plug hole.
