1997 Nissan Altima Misfire Diagnosis -EricTheCarGuy
In this video I get into a misfire and check engine light on this 1997
Nissan Altima. The misfire codes are P0100 MAF sensor, P0325 Knock Sensor,
and P0304 Misfire cylinder #4. The engine also runs rough at idle. I go
through the steps of it's diagnosis, find the problem, and come back after
the repair. The actual repair of this vehicle will take place in another
video (next week), this video covers how I found out what was wrong with
this Altima. Engine performance issues can be tricky to nail down but with
a little time, patients, and some diagnostic know how, I'm sure you'll be
able to overcome any engine performance issue.
Here's a link to the repair video:

2013 Ford Fusion Wind Tunnel Test
Ford Motor Company's wind tunnel facilities do much more than just create
wind—they can simulate a full-blown Canadian blizzard or Arizona's desert
The automaker's six wind tunnels in Detroit -- including its
state-of-the-art Driveability Test Facility -- are virtually replacing the
real world, playing a large role in reducing the cost and time it takes to
bring new products to market.
Every year, Ford treks to such faraway places as Arizona, Florida,
Colorado, and Canada, putting vehicles through a battery of tests under
extreme environmental conditions—heat, cold, high and low altitudes.
Engineers prove-out and calibrate vehicle components, such as powertrains,
air-conditioning, heating, cold starts and engine performance. These trips
-- as many as 50 a year -- can cost up to $20,000 each and it can take up
to two years to complete the testing.
Road Test: 2013 Ford Fusion
The Ford Fusion aims high, trying to win back the midsize market for

My 700th video dedication, thanks to everyone who helped me make it thus
far, looking forward to the next 700 videos in the future! In this video I
give a short tour and test drive of the all new 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
3.8 Grand Touring. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and
exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and
noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I show the car idling as
well as take it on a thorough test drive through the city and highway on
various surfaces. A thorough drive of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
