Un-seizing a V6 engine #4
The V6 engine I have is seized up, so I show how I get it to spin over
Note some of my techniques are not recommended for a useful engine. One of
the most important factors is time, the longer you let diesel or
penetrating oil sit in the cylinders, the better, so long as you keep any
water out at the same time!
Using citric acid for rust removal
Citric acid can be bought from drugstore (they use it in jelly or such to
adjust acidity) but it is very expensive there. Therefore Finnish rodders
buy it from some agriculture-store. It is not expensive. Officially it is
used as pigs obstruent! I dipped those parts in citric acid for overnight,
next day brushed it with wirebrush and flushed it with water. Then again
back to citric acid over night and wirebrushed + flushed it next day.
Flushing is important, you'll want to get all acid away, otherwise steel
will turn to yellow.
You can't use this method on all parts because of hydrogen embrittlement.
So no pedals, frames, brake drums, engine blocks or such to citric acid!!!
And yeah, parts should be clean -I've cleaned 'em with fuel- because grease
will neutralize acid. Ratio was 3%
Parts must be dried soon as you get them flushed, I quess you guys know

Magic Potion to unstick an engine part 1
I whipped this concoction up to soak the cylinders with in my Oldsmobile.
In part 2 we'll see if it works.
Also, if you wonder what the difference is in stuck, frozen and seized,
there is none. Stuck just sounds like there's a better chance of getting it
to move again :-)
Disclaimer: There is no guarantee that a stuck engine will run correctly
after they get freed up, so try this method at your own risk. Internal
parts including the engine block itself could be damaged. Even if the
engine does run, often there is cylinder or ring damage resulting in
excessive oil consumption.
Engine Running NO OIL - NO SUMP - Seized Soild on Camera
Messing with a Mitsubishi Lancer
There are loads of videos where people run an engine at full rev with no
oil in it, and the engine seizes.
Running it a medium rev, I wanted to see how long it would run with no
lubrication, and I was surprised.
However if the car was driving and the engine was under load, it would be
dead in minutes!
Un Seizing The Tractor Mike Rolled
This is the beast that mike took over the cliff. It seized up maybe 10
minutes after he rolled it. Sean was driving it at that point. So i
rescued the beast with the tow truck that is now at drews. no more easy
rescues like this one. at least for a while.
This bolens does work again. Its hard to pull it when its cold, but after
it starts, and warms up, you can shut if off and it spins normally again.
till it cools. but it still runs perfect and all. Maybe a little less
How To Unsieze An Engine
This is the diesel I got for the Astro van, basically free, with the 700R4
transmission. Which ironically turned out to be a great transmission, the
only one of three that has a good fourth gear, but I rebuilt it anyway.
Who knew a 30 year old automatic could still be sweet inside.
I have unsiezed this diesel engine like this three times now. It
obviously has some internal problems. So its on the list to get a tear
down and rebuild, right after the Ranger is back together. It takes about
an hour or more to get this motor turning over 360 deg. Then it won't
quite fire, but makes little smoke puffs.
The starter in the 6.2 diesel has some serious torque, sucks the battery
voltage down and makes a tremendous amount of heat. It still takes an hour
of cranking an eighth of an inch at a time.
Freeing up a stuck valve without having to tear the engine down
I was working on the 1964 Honda CA77E ( 305cc Dream ) and figured I'd share
a trick on getting valves unstuck without bending em and without having to
tear the engine down... Now for reference this is the same CA77E that was
in my old shed and I had previously flushed it through so the crank and
trans were freed up.. but I had a stuck valve ... Now ya'all know one way
to get around it without having to tear down an engine

#1 Small Engine Repair: How to unseize a Kohler Shredder 16HP
Used The Product Engine Release to unseize this 16 HP Kohler Shredder,
Found the product on www.seized-engine.com Followed the instructions on the
website and used their "Kit calculator" to figure out the amount of Engine

took a little over two weeks to free-up the engine as said on their site...
The product worked GREAT! I will try this again 100%.

Animation I created for Toyota that gives an overview of the components of
an engine, how an engine works and some of Toyota's valve, intake and Exhaust technologies. I wrote, directed
and storyboarded the video. It was for training purposes only.
