In a previous video https://youtu.be/Xr1J_h1mngc I had a look at this 2015 Jeep Cherokee with the big 3.2 and determined it had a faulty fuel injector. Now it is time to tear into it and see if we were correct.

    Ha ha yours and Rain Man Ray’s phones sound the same

    "What a PITA"
    LOL

    audio sounds great to me, never had an issue

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BigDaddy MRI says:

    Sounds good to me, Eric. Pretty crystal clear. Watching on YouTube.

    Might just be very sensitive and picks up everything. One of my electronics creators wears a lapel mic that bluetooths to his camera. It sounds amazing and has very little external sound pickup. Maybe look into that?

    But this mic you’re using sounds great.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Gleebols says:

    Perfect audio here👍

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrEnfilade says:

    My God, Stellantis, what have you DONE to Willys-Overland?!

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars methanial73 says:

    I love my 3.6 Chrysler, but it's irritating to have to remove the plenum to just change the spark plugs.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ecotec4 says:

    Eric, we need to buy you a Atlanta Hawks trucker hat and see if you can pass off as a Burt Gross look alike! 😁

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SoLo says:

    can you not add a fluffy bit to the mic to reduce the background noise, like the old wind noise trick?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave J says:

    Never nothing wrong with the audio, even the background noise is real.
    However I need to stop blinking because I missed the spark plug replacement 😒

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The older I get the wrong bit gets stiff !!! says:

    The audio is fine for me YouTube UK, its a working shop so I expect background noise.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars zx8401ztv says:

    Eric, your audio is fine, people are too picky.
    A quick check saves your neck. 😀

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bismarck San Diego says:

    Hey Eric, do you recommend using fuel injector cleaners? Like Lucas or anything, or do you just recommend replacement? TIA

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Berg says:

    Not sure what kind of camera you have or if it supports external audio sources, but you could look into something like a shotgun mic. That would be better for times when the camera is just on the tripod and would help cut down on background noise since it is a lot more directional, but it might make things a little weird if you are trying to cram the camera and yourself under a dash.

    Personally, I don’t mind the audio as it is. Honestly, if you hadn’t said anything, I wouldn’t have known that you had a new camera at all. Then again, I’m not one of those types who power-whines about minute, insignificant issues.

    I was never a fan of Mitchell. I always found the navigation to be super clunky and I don’t like the fact that they try to translate OEM service documents into their own stuff. That’s just another point of failure, as you showed in this video. Just give me a reprint of the actual OEM data, not another company’s version of translated OEM data. I got along fairly well with AllData and Identifix, specifically for the OEM data and TSBs. I always skipped the “silver bullet” fixes on Identifix and the AllData community though lol.

    How do you remember where all the hoses go? I forget why I walk into the bathroom

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Melvin Jones says:

    The sound is ok for me. No jeep for me.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Chiodetti says:

    This was one of those times where the OHM meter paid for itself in testing the injector.
    Hopefully the injector "o" rings on the old injectors won't cause a vacuum leak.
    Good job Mr. O. Nice to see Mrs. O.
    Oh ya. Where did you buy the lubricant you used on the engine cover? What brand?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars buffsheeri says:

    Rayman is rubbing off on you with the phone noises lol

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jay Stevens says:

    Been wondering, how many P.I.T.A. cars have you worked on? Other than all of them

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars malkentent says:

    you my friend have some magical hands. but that wiring harness and antipollution stuff.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mockmonkey1 says:

    I tried the audio on my Computer which is just my regular TV for the video and my Roku using the same TV. The Roku was more tinny sounding because it's using the cheap TV speakers whereas the Computer Audio is using my separate speakers which has more bass. Neither was objectionable. I think your new camera is fine. YouTube on Roku isn't that great.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Didamo says:

    I get what your saying about the multiple sources for data, but like you said, a couple hundred a month, how’s a diyer supposed to afford that, I can hardly afford one source, and which one do I get if I can’t trust any one of them? There has to be a better way, besides a service manual and blind luck.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Emeny says:

    I was screaming at the screen, " Ohm out the new one before you stick in the engine. " Just because it's new doesn't mean its any good!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Hind says:

    Your audio is just fine !

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GTCGreg says:

    Smart to actually measure the resistance of each injector. If you just went by the Mitchell data, you would have gone through all that work only to put it back together and find you still had the problem. Next step would have been to start checking the wiring for high resistance and if that didn't show any problem, next would have been to suspect the ECU. Thank you, Mitchell. Wonder if you can get your money back for this month.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Latarian HoodRat says:

    Eric, I will never ever own a Dodge, Ford or Chevy, but I still watch every single video. Thank you so much. I appreciate your effort!

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony Nixon says:

    The point of failure might not be you my airpod sound quality is perfect.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Hancock says:

    Audio sounds fine on this video. Some other recent ones had a bunch of the audio coming out of the rear surround speakers for some reason, I assume those were with the surround mode turned on..

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars panzerveps says:

    In my opinion, as a professional technician, it's not the red lock tabs that are troublesome but the grey ones.
    I absolutely hate the grey lock tabs.
    The red ones are all right.

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

    Out here in California many of the dealership parts department don’t even answer the phone. Or deliver parts. Getting harder to make the customer happy these days. Keep up the good work.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Terry Zimmerman says:

    Sounds great to me.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mic Glou says:

    I don't think the audio sucks… it's really clear. But yes, it does pick up a bit more background noise, but not to the point is hard to listen to. Video also very crispy looking!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jam Ram says:

    Within 6 months, another injector will fail. With Napa packaging OE Jeep injectors, it should behoove the owner to replace the other while they’re available…..🤑🤑 and life would be much better for this Jeep.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul westerhaus says:

    I see you use some German tools

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Torrance says:

    Hi Eric, don't despair. The audio seems perfectly good to me. I am playing it through my standard video card in my PC, and a set of 5+1 Logitech speakers, the "5" being 2 inch units in plastic boxes. The bass unit is quite a bit larger and can overpower the treble. Just remember some audio nuts will complain about the slightest imperfection. Don't worry about them. I just love your video content, and your playful toying/teasing on screen with your Good Lady, Vanessa. She is lovely and cute.

    Mozzle do the oil cooler while you’re in there.

    I see you have your Led lights most of them have LEDs light on both sides of them I'm just a DIYER you think that's a big advantage in a shop that you think for a DIY person got some good ones thinking about upgrading

    I always double check my hearing aids and the batteries before I watch one of your videos.😉
