Car Falls Off Lift!!!
A vehicle at a garage slipps off the lift arms and some how manages to get stuck 1 foot off the ground. Somehow the vehicle suffered very little damage. Car gods were looking out for this one.
*update* This is how the vehicle came to it resting spot*
Engine and tranny were getting ready to be installed into vehicle, Hence the craddle sitting on jack stands. While lowering the vehicle down to install the craddle back into vehicle no one noticed the pole jack still supporting the rear end of the vehicle until it was to late. This is the result of what not paying attention does. 1 man almost looses an arm while holding the strut up right to slide it into position... Dont work in a hurry people!
Failed motor swap
I finally got my sr20det motor swap finished after several months of work, it ended up having a really nice knock on at least 3 cylinders, if not all 4 cylinders, you can hear the knock at just over half of the video, I purchased this motor from jdmenginescorp.com, do not buy from them!!!
How NOT to remove your engine.
Subscribe to my channel, I'm always posting great videos!
About this video, I know this is a bad idea. There were some idiots on the turboDodge.com forums suggesting that this was a good idea. I needed to get a blown motor out of my car, so I setup the camera and demonstrated exactly what can go wrong with this method. Honestly, I tried to get it down gracefully, in the end I guess I was lucky it didn't knock the car over in the process. Let this be a lesson to all, use an engine crane. At least in cars where it's not designed to come out the bottom.

I also want to add my "Idle Speech" into the mix here: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/8-Service-and-Repair-Questions-Answered-Here/41475-solving-honda-idle-issues-rough-idle
There are a lot of things that can contribute to an idle issue, in fact in the end it may still be there to some degree because of the nature of that engine however here are some things to start with.
First start with a good tune up, use NGK or Nippon Denso plugs, don't change the wires if they are OE, if they aren't OE you might consider NGK wires as they are very good and less expensive then OE. A quality cap and rotor should be good. A new air filter also helps.
Don't change the PCV valve, if you see an aftermarket PCV valve in there put a Honda in, believe it or not I've seen idle issues caused by aftermarket PCV valves, the OE's last just about forever so you can easily justify the expense.
Next a good valve adjustment, this goes a long way to smooth out the idle if done correctly, mess it up and things can get a lot worse though.
While you have the valve cover off check the timing belt tension, if you feel a lot of slack this can cause the cam to 'chunk' as it spins causing a rough idle. If you think the belt has been on there for some time then you might consider changing it and resetting the tension properly, if it's not ready for replacement you can reset the tension to take up the slack.
DO NOT adjust the idle screw under any circumstances, it is set at the factory and that is the reason it was sealed in the first place. If you find that the seal has been broken and you have a low idle and you have done all of the above then you might turn the screw out a little to see if that helps the idle but only enough to try and bring it back to where it was before it was adjusted in the first place.
Last clean the screen in the Idle Air Control valve, this can get clogged up with carbon over time and cause the flow through it to be restricted which can cause idle issues.
If you still have a 'rough' idle after all of this THEN look to the engine mounts as you want to be sure the engine is running correctly before you go for those as the one in the back is a real pain to replace.
