After making the initial diagnosis on this vehicle and determining it is in cylinder number two, it is time to pull the intake and have a look to see if we were right! UPDATE: Customer had me remove the heads and off to the machine shop they went. Machine shop reported back that ALL intake valves need to be replaced even though they would seal, they had slight bends to them when installed on valve grinder. -Enjoy!

    In the words of Artie Johnson….if you are old enough…very interesting!!

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Farmer says:

    You made the call day one. Thought it didn't appear to cause as much damage as suspected. I would recommend that both heads be pulled so that all fasteners would be checked for proper tightening. If I were you I would have to get the customer to agree to you continuing only if you were allowed to do 100 percent of the work from scratch.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edward Demedeiros says:

    Quite the diagnosis. Spot on.

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

    Nice diag process Wric O great video as ways @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

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

    Wow at how the bolts are either missing or loose all over this engine and vehicle I have seen that more then I wish I have and it always shows the lack of care who ever Did it and It's frustrating for the tech and even the owner if a shop or the place it was bought from did it shame Eric O @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alexander Cahoulan says:

    This is shot in the dark that youll even see this….how much did the machine shop charge for fixing/replacing all intake valves? I just have been trying to get a ballpark number at least. To no avail. If your eyes do run across this just want to let you know, you are my hero. I can only hope to be half the man you have become.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alexander Cahoulan says:

    this is the second time Ive seen someone align the crankshaft incorrectly. This one guy….he posted a video on Youtube teaching people the wrong way to align the crankshaft. He said the little arrow should be facing south. I couldnt believe my eyes. I immediately tried to warn people its incorrect. But imagine all the engines this freaking guy ruined. Who knows! maybe this is his car!

    Great videos … my only issue is I wish you had a microphone. After years of hearing loud motors ,sometimes it’s hard to hear all that you say … or maybe closed captioning ? Thanks.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Reaperofwind says:

    All the missed bolts, I could of worked on that.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars philiphied says:

    You're phenomenal dude. A lot of mechanics have problems with dyirs like me, and understandably so. but you have props man. Given customer's bs job and then not taking offense if they took your assistance but wanted another Crack at it.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David SCHWANDT says:

    I would call the customer first. I find out if he wanted you or even himself and save whoever the the time and effort of removing it again

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David SCHWANDT says:

    A Jr college that teachs auto mechanics would do well to hire you

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars arsbadmojo says:

    dafuq is a "leakdown test", and compare/contrast to a compression test?

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Studmuffin says:

    if all the bolts were loose the bolts on the cam gears were also loose and slipped the timing. Good times.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lou Roberts says:

    Just found your channel. Remind me of when I worked on them 13 years ago before the economy took a dump and was forced into trucking

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Victor Barajas says:

    Well, I don't like to complain much but, if a mechanic works on my car and, do the timing wrong, his morning coffee will be full of screws.
    Thanks for all your help Eric

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel A. Freeman says:

    Being a mechanic is tough. I have been 40+ year's. I have seen some incredible repairs.
    This would rank in the top 20's for me.
    Eric, I tip my hat to you!
    Owning my business has taught me that people want to be informed.
    We are not perfect. We do our best from our vast experiences and knowledge.
    I tell the customer, in simple format, and want them to ask as many questions as for them to feel comfortable with the answer.
    I do not know everything. I will find the answer always.

    Thank's Eric! Keep the wrenches turning!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Cambreleng says:

    Where can i get that software you used and how much does it run along with the compression tester and leads

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tyler Williams says:

    im left wondering what the customer wanted/decided to do. am i missing a video?

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lawdawg Mon says:

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DAMRGHOST says:

    Your a good mechanic brother . Love the unfake no BS or drama to your channel.. I have thought about doing a channel like this but always worried that you can't make it without made up BS .. keep it real 💯 👍👍👍👍👍

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Hamilton says:

    This is the problem when so called do it yourselfer did not know enough to tackle this job. There are books and/or online instructions to do this. I feel sorry for the guy, but he should have done more research before he tried to tackle this job. Great job of diagnosing Eric!

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craigie F Concert says:

    Such a great video to watch and be aware to take care and not cut any corners.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robin Sattahip says:

    That timing mark is a nasty trap.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert King says:

    serious issues with who did the job to begin with. warranty? It seems this will be a expensive lesson, do we save money using x or a mechanic

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Terence Hawkes says:

    Wow Eric, I would not have touched that thing! As always I am impressed with your diagnostic skills.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars fdrangerman says:

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Becky Wilkerson says:

    Like always great videos

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars cory horne says:

    Well all I can say is I have had to take both heads off after I did a timing belt. I was not going to take it somewhere else and have them laugh at me for my screw up. I was taught it is ok to make a mistake as long as you learn from it

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Josephine Oliver says:

    I'm a female and I enjoyed watching this, I used to hang about listening to the males in my family work on cars when I was a kid so for most of it I knew what he was talkin' about..also I'm buying a 2004 Honda Odyssey.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Sweet says:

    That sux, there goes that feeling of self satisfaction for doing something yourself…. plus another $600 bucks gone for the second valve job within 1 mile of operation! Poor guy, that's how hard working, do it yourselfers learn though!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Raul L Calzadilla says:

    Another great video!!!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars postersm 71 says:

    D2DH dedication to a dead hole. To the hooptie in all of us. I suppose a dead hole might not be an inspection fail.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Enright Automotive says:

    DIY, I can do it myself I don’t need a mechanic 😂😂😂 see this all the time. People try and save a buck and end up costing themselves more in the long run.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NUNYA BIZNES says:

    as soon as the engine is fixed the trans will fail.. Odyssey's are notorious for trans failures.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jjc882011 says:

    Never do a head gasket as DIY, leave it to the mechanic.

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kurt t says:

    I would have said its junk now , go buy something else and be careful when you work on it
