Cleaning EGR valve on 98 Toyota Camry?

December 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Can anyone comment on the process involved in cleaning the EGR valve on a 1998 Toyota Camry. Any cautions or tips. Is there a gasket that will need to be replaced, and do I need to use a sealer if there is? I am assuming that throttle body cleaner is the best solvent to use. I want to try cleaning it before I pony up $165.00 for a new one. I have basic mechanical knowledge and tools, and the part removal and re-install looks to be easy enough as it sits right on top of the engine. There always seem to be some little hang up on these “simple” jobs. Any assistance or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Is it possible to lower the engine compression on a 02 ford escape?

December 16th, 2010 · No Comments

Problem: I would like to know if it is possible to lower the engine compression to keep the spark plugs from blowing out, spark plug blowouts are common with ford engines because of the compression and aluminum heads that are not strong enough to hold the plugs in place under normal compression. Will lowering the compression keep this from happening again? what else could happen with lowered compression? gas mileage, horsepower, etc.

2001-2007 Honda CBR600 F4i Slip-On System Installation Instructions

November 18th, 2009 · No Comments

Installation Instructions
1. After bike is cool make sure the bike is secured before beginning the installation.
2. Remove the right side fairing (refer to the owners manual for more information on removal).
3. Remove the stock exhaust from the bike. Unbolt the exhaust mount on the rear peg and loosen the collector clamp and remove the stock system.
4. Attach the LOR exhaust canister to the slip-on tube adapter with the spring tabs aligned (make sure your hands are protected with a pair of gloves in case the tubes slip). You may have to squeeze the mid-pipe adapter tube to fit into the exhaust inlet as the mandrel bends may become slightly out of round due to a cut near the bend (the tube will take form once connected). Slide the canister all the way until the slip-on adapter seats fully against the exhaust inlet. Wipe off any excess silicone.
