    The fact that you replaced everything with new parts is something I strongly believe in. My 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited (1 year only) gets everything that I can find new gets replaced. 23 year old parts need replacing before they let you on the side of the road. GREAT JOB!

    the O2 sensor readings he showed had nothing to do with the catalytic converter. They are in response to how rich or lean the engine is running. They move up and down slightly as the O2 sensors are telling the ecm/ecu whether the exhaust is rich or lean. The ecm changes the injector pulsewidth to add more fuel or cut fuel to achieve the desired 14.7:1 stoich ratio. If the sensors are way off or bad, the engine will run rich or lean. In addition, the maf is providing a measurement of how much air the engine is taking in as the wire is heated or cooled down and higher or lower voltage is applied. He is using a measurement that will only be affected if the cat was clogged, and only on the post cat.

    5:52 these screws are for adjusting up/down/left/right... Not in/out. its obvious from their location after closing the trunk. 7:02 you can take of the trunk door, and make those holes for hinges bigger, so you can push the trunk door deeper. 8:35 i think thats illegal in most countries. 27:15 it looks awfull. You should buff it a little

    Hello there I have a mk4jetta tdi 1.9 1999,5 When clutch is already engaged and car going. The rpm being close to 1000 up to 1500 car vibrates bad. I don’t like drive high rpm, only at highway goes up to 2600 . Car always vibrates slightly but when rpm is lower vibrates bad. In neutral or clutch disengaged vibrates some but not much. Car shifts ok and clutch pedal is not sticking. And clutch doesn’t slip. The transmission feels ok. But car vibrates bad. I already changed the motor mounts but still car vibrates. I noticed after installing the dog bone mount is twisted. As was the same way the old ones. Old owner had hit a rock driving off road long time ago. The oil pan got knocked . I wonder if have any frame damage. What can it be the vibration and how get rid of it?

    I have the same noise in the rear of a Dodge truck. I had a mechanic disassemble and inspect it because I had plans for a motor swap. The noise was slightly different after it was reassembled with synthetic oil. It has about 6000 miles and still has not changed. The motor swap was completed about 4500 miles ago. It had a 4.7 and now sports a 6.4 Hemi. Sounds like I need a different gear set as well from your video. I had suspected the pinion bearings same as you. Anyway, well done sir.

    It works if you run it every 10,000 miles from the time the vehicle is new. I use the Scotty Kilmer method also, except I remove the the cat or cats every 50,000 miles. I do a 5 minute soak in muriatic acid rinse/ back flush in water. Then a 5 minute soak in lye ( granular drain cleaner mixed with distilled water). Then another through rinse and back flush with tap water. As long as there is no damage on the inside of the cat from mechanical or impact damage they will look almost new inside.. I have a 2005 Nissan Xtrerra with 380.000 miles on it running the original cats applying my method.. It is time consuming and you have to be careful with the acid and base but it works and beats paying over $3,000.00 for OEM cats.

    In extreme weather synthetic oils are far superior. If your engine is in good shape synthetic is the only way to go . To say otherwise is misleading in the extreme . A wasted engine is far more expensive to fix than a few extra dollars you save by choosing cheap dyno oil.
