How to replace PCV valve on a 01 Honda Civic (01-05 Civic)
 
03:11
The PCV valve is located on the side of the engine near the oil filter area. It's easiest access from under the car. Need jack stands. You will need a 17mm wrench and pliers. Use pliers to disconnect the clip holding the hose to the PCV valve, then remove the valve using the wrench. May have to turn hard. But should not be a fight! OVERALL EASY!!

In the verge of moving out! (a right thing to do??) In Danger of bankrupt!
 
08:49
SO, my wife's job has already planned on moving her to a different position, cutting the pay significantly. This is going to cause TROUBLE! Even with me working we will struggle! Jenny's income CUT, And my job is NOT reliable! So it means NO WAY we can cover all the bills. THIS WAS UNEXPECTED. I ALWAYS have a HARD time getting a "Good" job. Employers just never give me a freakin chance! I'm tired of working some days and then it stops. SO I'm am thinking one of these two things.: Filing bankruptcy. BUT will have quite a few things to sacrifice, possibly my Mercury and or other vehicles. Because the court can take away some of my things. Or sell the house and use the equity we have to pay much of our credit off and move in to a cheaper apartment. What do you guys say? Those of you who are experienced on this type of thing?

adjust headlight aim on 2001 Civic
 
01:53
This is where the adjusters are at on a 2001 Civic. Very easy. But it does take quite a few turns of that "gear" to get it adjusted. After NOT finding ANY info what so ever on youtube about how to adjust the headlight aim for Civics 2001 thru 2005. With how popular these cars are, I'M VERY SURPRISED THAT NOBODY POSTED ANY VIDEO FOR A 2001 THRU 2005 CIVIC yet!

1989 Nissan Stanza! BRAND NEW!
 
06:10
This is a BRAND NEW 1989 Nissan Stanza! Our 1983 Mercury had just blew the cylinder head rendering unusable, BUT, this is because my step dad kept driving the Mercury even when it was over heating. Ruined the engine. SO, as you see it, my step dad, with his good credit, went ahead and bought this BRAND NEW 1989 Stanza! Mom originally wanted a Sentra, but my step dad insisted on the Stanza GXE, which was the top of the line Stanza. The price was about $15000, and the payments was $325 a month. The Sentra started at about $7000 NEW! When I first heard the price of this new Stanza my step dad just bought, I commented to myself. "$15,000 is TOO MUCH. It's not worth to spend $15000 on a car" So in these days, the top of the line mid size cars like this one was about $15000. And the cheaper small cars typically started at $7000, and usually not more than about $10000 for a decently loaded Sentra for instance

1991 Working at dine in Pizza Hut at Sierra ave Fontana
 
15:53
So, I used to work at this Dine in Pizza Hut. From Aug 1991 til June 1992. I was making $4.25 an hour (min wage). I was a dishwasher and a cook. I liked the cook position better evidently. My boss was a cheapskate. It took them 10 months for me to finally get a little recognition for my quality work. And even more insulting. AN 8 CENT RAISE! 8 cents..... REALLY? I stayed with this job until I got a new one at a laboratory. I started at $5.50 an hour which I liked!

Working at McDonald's! 1989
 
12:21
I had this job in 1989! What McDonald's was like in the 80's. I worked at McDonalds back in 1989. I used to do 10:1 or 4:1 (hamburgers or quarter pounders). I cooked chicken nuggets and fillet O fish as well. I remember I used to get PISSED when restaurant is almost closing, then a SHIT LOAD of customers come in at the last minute! OH OF COURSE the busiest times there. Where we can't seem to make enough burgers for everybody..SHIT I hated that. And it's funny cause many employees particularly the youngsters,would LET OUT our frustration of the SUPER BUSY moments. AND I MEAN SUPER SUPER busy by reusing buns, cheese, patties etc after dropping on the floor! I did not usually do that. Even though I was a KID then. I worked here for almost a year. Then I quit. Because I fell for this gimmick. And ad I came across to. The ad promising I can make $300 a week working at home assembling products (making normally $75 a week here). So I let the manager know, I will be moving to the "work at home" job, assembling products. Only to learn (just after quitting) of the deadly mistake I made. The assembling products job WAS A GIMMICK! DAMN, (You know, young kids believe in everything, ME). Quitting was a BAD mistake. Now, I'm cut from income. To THIS day, it is a MEMORY! I really regret quitting the McDonalds job.

Repair vintage VHS camcorder that does not eject (or play tapes) 80's RCA brand
 
18:16
It is one small rubber band that is the mother of the problems! This is a CPR-300 I am working on. Most of the RCA VHS camcorder of this year range is all basically the same. The CPR-300 and the 350 I have is from 1987, also the CPR-250 1987 and a Sears VHS Movie 1988 is basically the same, Replacing all 3 rubber bands (drive belts) will make your camcorder work perfectly!

How I fixed the rough idle. And resolve OBD2 readiness issue on 95 96 Mazda Protege
 
04:54
ATTENTION ALL! For many of you who most commonly have a problem with rough idle on the older cars.AND NOTHING YOU DO SEEMS TO FIX IT. For my case I had the wrost nightmare about the OBD readiness monitors on my 96 Protege. 4 of them was just NOT getting Ready! Fails the smog because of it. Got very frustrating! For so many months, I've NEVER been able to make out "What's causing those monitors to NOT be ready!" Also along with it, the problem with rough idle. "Didn't bother me too much, BUT for the smog check it DOES bothers". Also often get the CEL light showing "Fuel trim problems" and "Cyl 2 misfire". I just kept resetting the codes. So I don't have to see that annoying "check engine" light. Of course since I bought my car, those 4 OBD monitors NEVER got "ready" 5 months. THEN (this is the INTERESTING part), after researching the web for months! I decided to check the MAF sensor! I had bought some MAF sensor cleaner, $7. I removed the top of the air cleaner assembly (just the top) out of the car. I then cleaned the hell out of the sensor, including the area of the "hot wire". Plus I cleaned the inside throttle body as well using this same cleaner. Put it back together. Also replaced the PCV hose from the valve cover to air cleaner. (Not the hose to PCV valve, the other PCV hose) I used my 96 the next day and................. I GOT THE NICEST NEWS, A GREAT SURPRISE!!! The rough idle STOPPED!!!!!!!! My gosh!!! All those months of "scratching my head". Finally fiqured it out! And here's the BEST PART................. As of the next day. Two of 4 OBD monitors in my 96 protege are NOW READY! Will pass smog now (since its only 2 that are not ready, if more than 2 are not ready it fails) MY GOSH! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT. All those months of frustration!!! And....... STILL NOT ONLY THAT! I have reasonable belief that the gas mileage is IMPROVED! Ever since I clean the MAF sensor. UNBELEIVABLE! I can't beleive a LITTLE thing like that caused those HUGE problems! This is the neatest experience I had in so long! So for my point of advice. When you clean the MAF sensor. Buy the cleaner DESIGNED for MAF sensors. Other cleaners can ruin the sensor, they have spray cleaners that say "MAF sensor cleaner". Evidently this MAF sensor is a BIG thing in a fuel injected car. So where is the MAF sensor located at, some may ask. Well on this particular car, 96 Mazda Protege. Its the rectangular shaped box just behind the air filter area. On the air cleaner hose going to throttle body. Its not the rectangular box you're paying attention to, its what's under it, and inside the hose. When you remove the air cleaner TOP, spray on all parts of the circular part including the screen and all thin metal lines "hot wire" crossing the circular part. Don't do this while sensor is connected! Disconnect everything before working! Clean this really good and WALLA! UB STYLIN!
