Get Some: Thanks for the video. Very helpful.

John Ingram: By the way, definitely be careful how hard you tighten the valve cover bolts. I snapped one off. I assume the others are enough to keep it snug, but I would have preferred to not have done that. On mine, I have some bolts that come out, and a couple of bolts that stick up in front, with nuts that you screw on. That’s the kind of bolt that I broke. It’s broken off flush with the top of the hole. I also found it a bit more challenging to get the cover back on, particularly without unseating the gasket. I ended up going around it with a chisel to shove little bits of it back in line before bringing the whole thing down. Might not be a bad idea to use some sort of light adhesive, though I don’t know what would be good for that.

John Ingram: Thanks for a great video. I also have a 2003 Camry, and my job went just like this one, right down to the blue gasket. I just became a paying patron of your channel and encourage others to do the same.

JoeLopez40oz: Not enough torque on the valve cover bolts.

Billie Bob Norton III: One point you may have overlooked ...I would recommend replacing that PCV valve (located on the rear left side of the valve cover where a rubber hose went on it). Also, noticed @ 13:50 it looks like a washer or stopper fell off the corner of the front left side of the valve cover. It's resting on the bolt under the valve cover. It's probably the kind of piece you are referring to @ 16:30

Richard Ahlquist: Thank you sir. I used your fine instructions to do just the same on my wifes car today.

Jason Gallardo: brand of your orange gloves and if possible a review ...thanks man great camera work

ttime1021: Does anyone know where to get a replacement hose that he was messing with around 6:00

Kesheng Yang: You are amazing. Just changed the gasket after watching your video. Thank you so much.

Bean Soup: Awesome video thanks Jo Daddy

David Miller: My 2000 Camry If I remember right. The tech I talked to claimed most Toyota heads if aluminum are 13 lbs.

Prince Simmons: What if the Head Gasket was blowed how do I check it or get it fixed on mine

Rob Russo: I have a 2010 Camry 4cyl. I hope I get 200,000 out of my different components as well.

James Dean: making a mistake by not torquing those spark plugs. If one of those spark plugs works it way loose and blows out you could strip the threads and then you really have a mess on your hands.

James Dean: good video enjoyed it....Can you tell me what you would have to remove to change valve stem seals?

Thanks

Analyzerbynature: You did a good job and explained everything very well except mentioning that the replacement spark plugs need to be iridium. I bought the gasket and $2.49 spark plugs online from Advance AP which said they were exact fits for my car that I had entered as the car the parts would be for. However, after picking the parts up and beginning the work, upon removing the cover, I found a sticker on the valve cover saying to use iridium spark plugs. This was also mentioned in the owner's manual. While exchanging the $2.49 plugs for the $6.99 iridium plugs at AAP, I mentioned that it said the plugs were exact fits for my 2002 Camry, but evidently have a different performance than the iridium plugs. The clerk told me that the $2.49 plugs burn a lot hotter than the iridium plugs. With that being said, I can only imagine what kind of permanent, irreparable and unknown damage that could be happening to the engine due to the excessive spark heat until enough damage is done to effect the performance of the engine. If you didn't use iridium plugs when you did this work, I would replace them asap to minimize the damage they are doing. All of the other information you shared was spot on. Thank you.

Katherine T: my Toyota 04 Camry quit on me. It brought us to get bloodwork but would not start. Hubby jiggled the battery cable and it started... So we went to Wal Mart. Got back in car it would not start. Again jiggled the cables and the relay and it started.. Got home and nothing would get it to start. Except maybe hitting the starter a few times. He changed the starter but now it hesitates and feels like it is not getting gas. I know we need to change the gasket and I would go ahead and do the spark plugs while at it. What else should be done?

Katherine T: If I knew I could get the bolts, nuts and screws off I would be out there doing it now

Rick Amira: Should you clean out where oil is in spark plug container?

Sam's Garage: Similar maintenance around 200,000 miles on my s10.  Leaking intake manifold gasket and original spark plug change.  The head gasket should be fun.
