There is an old sayin', "Some times you get the bear and sometimes the bear get's you." In the case ogf this van the bear got the owner. He and a friend attempted to DIY their head gaskets on this 2004 Honda Odyssey and unfortunately the crank gear has two marks on. Some of you know where I am going with this.... -Enjoy!

    See 👀 what you can hondoo 😆

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LTP Ma says:

    I never experimented about put thick head gaskets set to avoid the valves from hitting pistons

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rich R says:

    sometimes it's best to leave head gaskets to the pro's who do this for a living…..

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars boostedsil40 says:

    this was so preventable why do they have two marks on the pully?maybe other motors use the same pully that time off the dot not triangle?

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brion Greco says:

    My q is why did we suspect #2 when it clearly had no compression on #5? I'm sure im wrong, jw. (Edit: nevermind im an idiot)

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

    Great diag video with the Pressure Transducer Eric O @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

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

    The foil Intake tune is very creative For sure Eric O @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

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

    My experience loose. Lots everywhere is never good because it's a sign who ever worked on it didn't care if it had issues more like they were just fixing it to sell it and get rid of it not sure the history of it but I can feel the frustration as well big bucks to do head gaskets and boom never rums again over a timing issue good video as always Eric O @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kax Byrita says:

    Wow that compression test was really neat 👌.

    I think it's important to treat your mechanic well. As cars become more complicated. All the more so. I'm giving my automotive guy to really nice antique kerosene lamps for when the power goes out. One for his house and one for his cabin.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars nathan F. says:

    Definitely need to update that windows 7 computer to windows 8.1 or windows 10. Windows 7 is not supported my Microsoft for a while now. So it's an easy target for hacking

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mellow Guy says:

    You're right; those 3.5s always seem to bang the valves in the rear head. Had some long-time friends who live out-of-town at our place one weekend. When they went to leave, they cranked up and their 06 Accord ripped a few teeth off the belt (never been changed. Had 175k on it). Bent two valves in the rear head, and if I remember right, they were in fact in the #3. Eh well, gave us a good excuse to get together again a couple of weeks later after I fixed it.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daryl Sparks - Sparks Automotive says:

    meh, put a temporary valve softener agent in it & run it.. I'm pretty sure that'll take care of them bent valves.. no, no it won't 🙄

    Honda—- professionally reused

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Knorr says:

    From my understanding, most Hondas are interference engines. The values can and will make contact with the pistons, doing great damage.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars E.C.O Built says:

    I have gotten this same
    Vehicle. Needed head gaskets and t belt. Did the work but it now has a whine while
    Accelerating. Maybe you have an idea on what it could be? Only when pressing on the gas is when the whine is present.

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

    Repair work has definitely changed over the years.

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

    Keep the good work up

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ordonezno says:

    You are a beast. Ahhmazed.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sergio newsome says:

    great videos, Thanks for the tips. I have a question, just got done with valve job, put everything on TDC before taking heads off, got the heads cut, cleaned the valves, and installed heads, when I tried to turn rear head, It wouldn't turn, or it was next to impossible. the mark was 180 degrees in the other direction. I went ahead and removed that head, and loosened rocker arms to turn cam and set it to tdc, than I tighten everything up and before I installed, notice that cylinder 2 had intake valves open, and cylinder 3 had the exhaust valves open. Now the Crank is at TDC with cylinder one being all the way up. Can I install head with valves open like that, or is there anything else I need to do. I haven't set my valves, I was going to do that after my timing belt was on. Please advice. Thank you

    I love the peco, but don't think you can get better than the old fashion competition test.

    I have a 2006 Mustang v6 and it cranks but won’t start. It started with me having a blown head gasket and after I put the motor and eveything back together it wouldn’t start. I’ve had people say it’s out of time and a lot of other stuff. What could it be?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Yiyang Shi says:

    Before I start a DIY job, I always consult the service manual. Not to mention a job so big like this. None of us has the experience level anywhere close to any mechanic.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blazer 123 says:

    eric thanks for being a great mechanic they are hard to find

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Krasimir Ivanov says:

    Dude spent $600 for heads but didn't want to give another $100 for labor on the time belt.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chippy Chopper says:

    Another Honda with a blown head gasket, what else is new?

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lefty dog says:

    DIY head gasket on a car with Reynolds Wrap for air duct intake. I bet the guy saved up for 2 weeks to get enough aluminum foil from all the wrigleys gum wrappers to fashion that! You gotta be shittin me with these rust buckets and Gomer Pyle mobiles. if the guy used aluminum wrap to make an air duct, I'm betting big time that he's not gonna pay for a HG, especially on a beater that sat for 6 mos. I give you lots of credit for even trying to tackle these jobs. I still think that you should start taking your psych meds and then move the F out of east nowhere, NY and come join the rest of us. LOL

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J M says:

    I'm an amateur, but this is one reason why, on any significant engine work, even a timing belt, I take a month of weekends, remove the motor, and do the whole thing. PLOT the piston positions with each and every valve opening and closing, and I know exactly where the machine is in the 720 deg cycle. Nice time to do that rear main too! But I chalk all that time up to education.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don Cornwall says:

    So I guess that saying " If I can do it " , you can too isn't quite right judging from that guys engine build

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

    that pico test tool is so cool! got any other videos using it? would you recommend?

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blake Harvey says:

    my car sounded like that after changing the water pump, then after the first drive, you couldn't even hear the car running.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blake Harvey says:

    this is a little off topic, but I keep seeing ASTRO products, I've never tried any before and I am curious how are the Pneumatic tools, lights, etc.??

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Fenwick says:

    Great info as always ! Thanks Eric!!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thenormalyears says:

    damn I know what you mean about workin on cars with bad vibes

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Raymond Jr. says:

    Man that sucks, I hate these intake and exhaust marks, I did the same thing with my car. Now I spin it first and recheck the valves individually. Great video

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NightHawk J30 says:

    Im take a guess they didn’t line up cam shaft and crankshaft timing marks.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Deepdirty South says:

    On all Honda engines there is a ground strap that goes from the engine block to the head if you do not hook it up it’ll never start.

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

    Sounds horrible!
    If they took the heads off themselves and already did a valve job then they can take them off again and redo some work 😂😭

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JT Jones says:

    You always spin an engine over by hand after a timing job, at least a few turns to make sure it is in time.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ed dy says:

    Dude, I love your channel.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars will b says:

    This is so easy I can't believe that

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Morgan says:

    i would pay double the price if this shop was close to me..ive seen alot of shops but theres not any with mechanics as honest as this guy and he always does the best he can on ever car he works on….man wish you was close to me lol..like the sip tie noone would have taken the time to do that thumbs up to this guy
