Did this video help you?

Rob Russo RobertR: 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.

Fixer 1: From what ive heard the cooling system stop leak is a bad idea. it plugs up everything.doesnt really work, just my two cents worth. great vids though thanks.

Bobby Tectalabyss: Hi . One thing I always use is neverseize/ antiseize it keeps the plug threads from sticking in the head. Steel and Aluminum doesn't play well together. Glad you didn't find a wet plug from a blown head gasket. Had to help my Son In-law fix his car for that a month ago.

UCanDoIt2: Thanks for sharing Barry!   Any chance that some escaped oil was sitting on those oil spark plugs?  They looked wet on the outside.  Once you removed them, that oil could have drained into the cylinder and potentially foul the new plugs.  Hope this isn't the case.  Great job!  Go Dawgs!

thomas dave: thanks for the video bro..

Leonard Gilbreath: I was told that Ford dropped the 5.4 because of this and the 6.2 doesn't have this issue.

Leonard Gilbreath: Jo just got off the phone with Ford $650 for the plugs.

Leonard Gilbreath: I've got an 06 F150 and need to change the spark plugs put from what I've seen they are problems taking them out breaking off in the head I normally do this my self put I'm going to take it to Ford and have them do it. What did you find on the no heat inside .

ELSDP-45: THANK YOU...for sharing. I trust your son brought you home a cold drink?

Steve Shelton: Another great video. Did adding the coolant take care of the heating problem ?
