just saw them dump bleach into gas tank and it caused car to die. they cleaned the gas tank and then dumped liquid drano. car ran perfectly. then the put sugar into the gas tank and car still ran fine with no stalling. cool show or what. the bleach caused the tank to rust very quickly.

I watch mythbusters every week religiously. For us engineering types, there's no cooler show on TV. I just wish discovery would start showing it on HD theater.

I love Mythbusters!

One thing that irked me about the egg in the radiator though...I have a feeling it all congealed and blocked the radiator up before the leak. This would stop coolant flow and make it seem as if the leak was fixed. Since they blew up the engine shortly after there was really no way to tell.

Pepper in the radiator will stop a pin hole leak as well.

Witnessed my father employ that trick on a Cordoba he was going to fix up.

Had an OLD mechanic tell me when I was in High school that they used to clean valves by pouring slowly uncooked rice down the carb throat(!) while the engine was running. Polished up the intake and the valves and seats,all at the same time. Shot the rice out the tailpipe!
HOWEVER---that was on old flat head style of engines. He said he didn't know if it would work on these "new" ('60's) V-8's...
Similiar to using walnut shells to clean running jet engines...
Heard of that pepper trick, too...

Actually, while out in the deep woods moose hunting last fall on of my buddies sprung a small leak....he made it over 80km back to civilizaton with no apparent damage after using an egg to plug the whole.

Wallnut shells in a jet engine?!?

Highly doubtful it would do anything besides destroy the compressor section............

How do I know? I've seen a sparrow destroy a running jet engine, and thier bones are pretty small and brittle......I'm an aviation technician among other things.

Now, if you're talking centrifugal instead of axial flow, then maybe..........

Cheers

Hah, I remember changing the battery fondly. The leaking gas also brought back memories :(

Kari is fine as hell! Not to mention the fact that I love a girl who doesn't mind working with her hands. Did you see her in Maxim??
