It was not that long ago that Zach was shredding the S14 on the Los Angeles Crest when all of a sudden he heard a very alarming sound coming from the engine bay… today we are taking a closer look at the S14’s engine and determining what the problem is. Let’s hope it’s not GG for the RB25!!!

  • If you can find one, RB30 block. reuse the 25 head. I would do new bearings on the entire block. then beat the snot out of it.

  • I had a knocking noise in my car. Also had trouble with gears. Can't remember what made me think that. Any way I assumed it was a gearbox. Been strapped for cash I parked the car up and I let it sit for 5 yrs. Eventually I had a look at it with my uncle and it was just a centre bearing to the tail shaft which blew out 🤣🤣🤣 Then I had to replace the barrel for some reason to get the car started. Needed a new fuel pump and cleaned the tank. Now the timing is out also lol

  • I had a 2006 Honda Accord LX Special Edition that at one point started knocking, and my mom had noticed it. The dealership I've been taking it to for oil change, during the first few years, never said anything about it. So when I took it to a different dealership to get an oil change, they brought it to my attention. It was cracked and broken barrings in the water pump, so I got it replaced with a Bosch

  • Sad story time: So, I watched this video a few days ago and just thought "Oh poor Zach". Then, yesterday I had to regasket my oil pan because of a leak, and oh my, it was a goldmine down there, even more than what Zach found in his, I seriously felt like crying lol it's my baby and first car, and a complete money pit but I always had confidence that at least the engine was healthy. Lucky Jobe that he can rebuild his engine, me? I'm just gonna thicken the oil and pray to the lord until knock-knock jokes begin.
