Top 5 Oil Change Tips -EricTheCarGuy

**Sponsored Video** I teamed up with Pennzoil on this one to bring you my 5 oil change tips. I hope they offer you some useful information the next time you change your oil. 1. Safely lift and support your vehicle 2. Be sure to use the correct viscosity for your application 3. If possible, add a little oil to the filter to prevent dry start up 4. Replace the drain plug washer 5. Dispose of your used oil responsibly This is the first time I've used Pennzoil Platinum Plus in a vehicle. I've been running it in my air compressor since I got it and it's working flawlessly. I'm looking forward to seeing what results I get with Pennzoil Platinum Plus. I had a little fun with this video. I tried to place the oil bottle in each shot. See if you can spot the oil in each shot of the video.

Torque and Horsepower Explained - What They are and How They are Different

In this video I will explain to you with examples what Torque and HP are and how they differ from one another. How they are calculated and what each means when talking about engines. This way next time you take in your car and put it on a Dyno (Dynamometer) and get your Peak Torque and Horsepower you know they exactly mean.

The Secret Behind Numbers 369 Tesla Code Is Finally REVEALED! (without music)

As requested... I uploaded The Secret Behind Numbers 369 Tesla Code Is Finally REVEALED! (without music) https://youtu.be/Mg7FI8cAuQs READ FULL ARTICLE HERE - http://369news.net/2018/04/10/secret-behind-numbers-369-tesla-code-finally-revealed/ Nikola Tesla did countless mysterious experiments, but he was a whole other mystery on his own. Almost all genius minds have a certain obsession. Nikola Tesla had a pretty big one! He was walking around a block repeatedly for three times before entering a building, he would clean his plates with 18 napkins, he lived in hotel rooms only with a number divisible by 3. He would make calculations about things in his immediate environment to make sure the result is divisible by 3 and base his choices upon the results. He would do everything in sets of 3. Some say he had OCD, some say he was very superstitious. However, the truth is a lot deeper. “If you knew the magnificence of the three, six and nine, you would have a key to the universe.” – Nikola Tesla Music By: 1.

Zmiana oleju mineralnego na syntetyczny. Co się stanie?

Czy można zmienić gęsty olej mineralny na olej syntetyczny? Test ma pokazać, że Tak - o ile zrobimy to z głową. W silniku mamy olej mineralny Mobil Super 1000 x1 15w40. Silnik spala jakieś 100ml na 1000km. Na jaki olej syntetyczny możemy go zmieniać? Na olej o tej samej lub większej lepkości. W naszym przypadku gdy silnik spala olej, należy użyć oleju o większej lepkości np. ...W50 albo ...W60. My dla bezpieczeństwa użyliśmy oleju syntetycznego 10W60. Najlepszym wyborem oczywiście byłby olej 5W60 - ale jest drogi. Czy można było użyć oleju 5W50? Myślę, że tak, ale byłoby to już delikatne ryzyko, ponieważ olej 5W50 jest znacznie rzadszy niż 10W60, co mogło doprowadzić do jeszcze większego spalania oleju. Czy można było użyć oleju 5W40? Nie. 5W40 w porównaniu do 15W40 jest bardzo płynnym olejem, skutkowałoby to bardzo dużym wzrostem spalania oleju. Jak się objawy po zmianie oleju mineralnego na olej syntetyczny? Silnik ma lżej, lepiej wkręca się w obroty, znacznie dłużej zwalcza zanieczyszczenia, wycisza silnik (w zależności od oleju jaki wybraliśmy). W naszym teście na starym oleju mineralnym mamy wynik 62-63db, na nowym syntetycznym 60-61db. Należy pamiętać, że silnik z czasem powinien się bardziej wyciszyć... dajmy syntetykowi popracować z parę roboczogodzin.

The Differences Between Inline Four & Boxer Four Engines

We have a 3D printed EJ20 Subaru boxer engine, as well as a 22RE Toyota inline-four engine. We’ll start fairly basic and work our way through several different topics for each layout, including the four strokes, the firing interval and order, the vibrations of each layout, the packaging differences, the cylinder head differences, and finally a bit about the sound. Looking at either layout, they’re both based on the same four strokes. Intake, compression, power, and exhaust. Both engines fire one cylinder for every 180 degrees of crankshaft rotation, but they have slightly different firing orders. On each engine, we can see cylinders one, two, three, and four. For the boxer engine, the firing interval is one, three, two, four, while on the straight four it’s one, three, four, two, so the order of the last two cylinders firing is switched. On the boxer engine, you’ll notice the pairs of pistons move in and out together. This means that the primary forces when the piston reaches the top of the cylinder, as well as when they reach the bottom of the cylinder, are canceled out. On the inline four cylinder engine, it’s the same story, the primary forces cancel out as the pairs of pistons reach the top and bottom at the same time. When we get into secondary forces, however, the engines begin to differ. Secondary forces are created due to the piston traveling faster at the top half of the piston than at the bottom half, something I’ll include a link to in the description for a video that breaks it down in great detail. What you need to know though, is that when the piston reaches the very top of the cylinder, or the very bottom, the secondary force points up or out from the piston. Now with the boxer engine, since the pistons point opposite each other, these forces are balanced out, resulting in a very smooth running engine. For the inline four, all of the forces point in the same direction, and thus do not cancel each other out, causing the engine to vibrate unless balancing shafts are used. The boxer engine isn’t perfect, however, because the pistons do not perfectly align with each other, it creates a rocking moment which makes the engine want to rotate back and forth along the vertical axis. What’s fascinating, however, is that if you add two cylinders to either of these designs, whether it’s a boxer six or an inline six, you can perfectly eliminate all first and second order forces and moments. You might think the boxer six would have a rocking motion from the cylinder banks of three, but each bank of three cylinders cancels out the rocking motion of the other, unlike in a V6 configuration. The other biggest advantage of the boxer engine is the low profile, which keeps the center of gravity low and thus reduces the amount of load transfer you have in the car during braking, cornering, or accelerating, which improves grip. With a lower center of gravity, you can also reduce body roll and choose to use softer springs. Additionally, in the event of a collision, it’s easier to position the engine so that it goes underneath the passenger compartment, rather than into the passenger compartment, for improved safety. That’s not to say the inline four doesn’t have it’s own size advantages. Generally it’s a bit more compact, with only one cylinder head, and it’s not quite as wide as the boxer engine. This leaves more room for suspension geometry, and can also allow for a better steering angle, since the tires won’t have as much of an interference at full lock.

My mission is to take subjects that can seem quite daunting and somewhat difficult to understand and explain them in such a way that everyone can understand and benefit. All too often things are explained to us in a way that is difficult to grasp. I really hope that all of my tutorials are understandable by most, if not all, people who wish to view them.

I want to help people understand as I was helped by some fantastic mentors during my years as a University student, in Science, and a trainee apprentice as an engineer. In fact, I could NOT have became a qualified repair engineer or a Science graduate if I never had these wonderful people in my life.

Sadly, some of them are no longer with us to see these videos, which I really want to dedicate to them. More than anyone else, I want to dedicate these to my Father, who is still a practicing engineer, for always pushing me into this field and ensuring I applied my mind to it, and for my amazing late mother, who nurtured, cared, loved and motivated me all of my life. When I was down she would always reach down and stand me back up again, telling me I was worth something. I only wish I could thank her in person and show her these videos. I realise now that she was my biggest and most amazing mentor.

Thank you for 40 Golden years mom!

I hope you find this video useful. I have tried to explain the meaning behind the codes you find on the engine oil containers. It basically explains their meaning and why they have been given their particular codes.

Codes may include 5w-30, 10w-30, 10w-40 or 15w-40, to name just a few available.
