  • chevyhs says:

    thank you for the video. The issue that I am having is my vehicle is consumer a ton of oil.  Changed out the oil pan gasket which helped, but there are no visible leaks. Thinking valve seals, is there any way to check.

    check your timing,egr system,and if its a high performance engine you may be using the wrong gasoline…..91 octane instead of cheapest 87 octane.

  • eddiebaby82472 says:

    Eric, would it also be a good time to look at tranny parts to check clutch / pressure plate wear? Or is part of flat rate work to not concern yourself with preventitive stuff?

  • Logan Altom says:

    Hello Eric, I am planning on swapping out my Civic engine for a GSR. My wife ran the car low on oil and now it eats oil fairly quickly. If you have any advice on what to look for in a swap, extra parts I may need, and any other tips, I would greatly appreciate it. I recently rebuilt a 91 Civic Hatch for my brother and didn’t have much of a problem. I have never actually swapped engines before, thanks again. Logan.

    you should leave the harmonic balancer off until u can drop the engine in completely past the chassis then install it. This gives you much more room to make small adjustments when mounting the engine.

  • gsrhatch14 says:

    i would like to add if you disconnect both sides of the harness that connect to the harness that go to the inside of the car you can take the motor out with the harness and then plug in all of the plugs on the other motor outside of the car its 10 times easier than doing it when the engine is in the car. this way once your ready to drop the engine back in all you have to plug in is 2 or 3 plugs (cant remember) on the left by the battery and 3 plugs on the right by the master cylinder

  • ulyanof says:

    hi! i have a question.. why do you think the transmission is located on the passenger side, not the driver side ?? is it any help to mass balancing (thus to handling).. as i know toyota always locates the transmission on the left side (driver side) ?? and for manual trans. hondas, is the trans. also located on the passenger side ?? i really wonder the reason for that.. thank you in advance..

  • Skandalos says:

    I would cuss and curse through the whole process. Id actually need a punching bag somewhere close.
