SYNCPHAN1OM: oil is leaking behind on the top of trans next to sensor and on top of
exhaust idk if it could be the oil pan or valve cover or cam plug
coltcomphbar: You should have resealed the cam plug.
(on the older Camry models they had a distributor o-ring. They use the same
head on the 97-01 models with electronic ignition so you need to reseal the
plug that goes where the distributor used to be)
adrian wellman: were abouts did u put the ultra grey
jerry Dishman: Great video! really helps out,thanks!
KATHLEEN DUVALL: I have a 1999 Camry, Oil was sopping # 4 plug. used a 10 mm wrench,
purchased a 30mm socket, purchased new plugs, wires, Gasket set. went back
for Sealant, then went back for PCV valve. Then went back for a O ring
Grommet for the valve. Took longer to go shopping and down time, and I am
no mechanic, BUT, Shooter250 Props to You, Camry running like a Swiss Watch
Abraham venegas: Should this be replaced if your car shoots out white smoke when you start
The68VEEDUB: What could be causing my 1998 toyota corolla to go through almost 2 quarts
of oil a week, the exhaust doesn't smoke and there is no evidence of it
leaking oil. The engine has 176000 miles on it what could be causing this
nicewknd: @nicewknd Ohh and about the RTV, I was able to use the previous spots of
RTV as a guide to put the new RTV. There were a total of four spots on each
ns671fr: haynes manual is pretty tight at 33ft lbs, i still saw an old toyota shop
book and it was at 13, but revisions to it show now 17. Just thought Id
throw it out there.
MogTrader: Hi, Do you know what else I should do if I do this job? Do you know what
sizes those fuel hoses are? Thanks.
nicewknd: Thank you soo much for this video. I used your video as a guide and I was
able to save a couple of hundred dollars to what the dealer wanted. And the
job is not too difficult for the average diyer.
Koan Khmer: My 1998 2.2 Camry got to 300,000 miles right now and it still runs great. 3
months ago Ive noticed that there an oil leak but I cant tell where its
coming from. I will give it a try by changing the valve cover. Thanks for
Joe Blow: I know this was a couple of months ago but just in case you haven't fix the
oil in the spark plug tube problem i might have the answer. On the inside
of the valve covers where the holes for the spark plugs are there are also
gaskets on those holes. they keep the oil from getting into the injector
boots or tubes. And obviously in there is oil there then the gaskets are
bad. Hope i was clear and i hope this helps.
anthro116w: @shooter250 Thanks for the info. And thanks again for the video!
ns671fr: Actually its 17ft lbs. I've owned a few 5sfe's. Previously it was 13 but
the revised is 17.
Xcite Music Entertainment, Inc - DJ service: You will have to replace valve stem seals in your head.. Two ways oil can
get into combustion chamber is through broken/cracked valve stem seals and
a blown head gasket...
Terri McDaniel: Thanks so much, couldn't have done it without with out this video!!
Icebeam47: How many miles did this car have on it when you did this?
shooter250: @MogTrader I went ahead and replaced the spark plugs and spark plug wires.
I destroyed the old spark plug wires trying to remove them. I would
recommend replacing the PCV valve. I don't know what size the hoses are. I
would take a picture of your valve train while you have it apart. I wish I
Amir Cash: any difference between this and replacing a blown head gasket?
fukthbullshit: thnxs my camry is a 95 and was leaking oil from their
terri steele: on the 2.2 ltr toyota camry vavle cover replacement is it mandatory to add
the 4 dots of permatex on each side of engine?
Rene Romero: wpuld this be the same for a 93 camry?
markzzzzzzable: Shooter, my haynes book says 14 ft lbs for intake manifold bolts. ARe you
sure that it is 33 ft lbs? tx
Nat Funk: That would be the valve guide seals. replacing the seals would also involve
changing the valve cover gasket because you need to remove the valve cover
to get started on the valve guide seal repair.
shooter250: Change the PCV valve, if that is going back, it can increase oil
consumption and is cheap (<$10). Another possibility is it only leaks at
higher oil pressures, so when you're parked you may not notice it. Have you
pulled the spark plug wires to see if there is oil around the spark plugs?
Also, check the coolant in the radiator. Make sure it still looks clean and
doesn't have oil contamination. Keep me update, I'm curious too now.
shooter250: I would guess yes if you want to keep it from leaking again.
MrDb2002: Great video!!! I recently replaced the valve cover gasket in my 1998 Toyota
Camry 4 cylinder 128,000 miles. Your video walked me through the entire
process, it took me about 1.5 hours as I took my time. I thought about
getting a new vehicle but in this economy and high gas prices I'll just
keep driving my ole faithful Camry. Plus she still drives great! To all old
Camry owners install an aftermarket radio/cd player and you'll love your
Camry even more, factory speakers will handle it!
iworkforbudlight: great job
Caleb Warren: great video, learned a bunch!
shooter250: I haven't worked on a Mazda before. Anything I said would just be a guess.
Nat Funk: I have a 93, and it is the same.
shooter250: @djanthro116 To be honest. I don't have any experience with oil in the
spark plug tubes. I don't want to give you bad advice. I think if you were
just replacing the valve cover gasket and you had all the tools you needed
with you, the job could be done in 1 to 1.5 hours. This does not include
curing/drying time for the RTV sealant. I'm glad the videos were helpful to
june8758: hey, i have a Mazda 6 2005, and I found oil around my 2 spark plugs in the
middle, I have a 4 cylinder do I have to change the cover gasket? any
advice would help thanks a lot...
masskhamisi4: No white smoke means your burning...not leaking
Homework04: What's the reason for applying on 4 spots the ultra gray seal? Thanks in
advance. Nice video!
Tone's Fitness Channel: any idea on how hard will it be to do this on a 1999 toyota solara?
anthro116w: @MrYoeyyutch My problem isn't quite that bad. I asked a Toyota mechanic, he
said that the sealant on the base of the tubes isn't completely sealing. He
wouldn't tell me how hard the job was or how to do it, but said "all that
needs to be done was pull the tubes out, clean out the oil, reseal them
back, and it'd be done". We'll see if I get around to it. I do appreciate
you putting time into my problem though. Thanks! ...side note: my TPS is
dying. another thing i gotta replace...
MrYoeyyutch: @djanthro116 I have a similar issue with my 95 Camry. It's as if oil has
gotten into the spark plug tubes and every once in a while the pressure
actually causes the boot to pop out of the top of the valve cover. A friend
who is a part time mechanic told me to replace the valve cover gasket. I
think I'll start there. But I'll ask around about the spark plug tubes and
post again if I come up with any good info on that.
inagod: they rarely leak,but if they are you will see oil around,boot,plug.
Stanley Hill: JUST DID THIS ON A 1996....MAN WAS IT FUN, PCV HOSES SNAPPED LIKE
TWIGS...GOTTA REPLACE THEM.....DID THE SPARK PLUGS AND TUBE SEALS AS WELL :)
The68VEEDUB: @shooter250 I tried the cardboard no signs of oil leakage. No smoke , I use
5w30 synthetic and normal oil off and on and change anywhere from 3000 to
13000 was the longest I've ever went without changing it. Because I go
through oil so quickly. Literally no joke I'm spending at least 30 dollars
every two weeks just to keep oil in. It's so aggravating when there are no
visible signs of smoke or oil leaking. I drive about 40000 miles in a year
Flatlandcoder85: Did you get around to this repair? How much oil are you leaking now?
shooter250: Mark: I'm not a mechanic, and I can't say I'm sure. Just double check the
MrYoeyyutch: I was leaking about a quart of oil every 1000 miles. This has steadily
increased over the past few months. Just dropped a quart yesterday!!!
Thanks so much for the video! If I can find a torque wrench, I think I
could pull this off.
shooter250: My first thought is its got to be going somewhere. I would wash under the
hood, that any leaks will be more noticeable. I would also put cardboard
under the car when you park. These two things will make leaks easier to
spot. Is the car smoking at all? What weight and type oil are you using?
How many miles between oil changes? Have you taken the cap off the radiator
to make sure your coolant is clean and the oil is mixing with the coolant?
Is your oil cap and dipstick still there?
shooter250: I didn't keep a record of that like I wish I had now, but I think it was
around 190,000 miles when I replaced the valve cover gasket.
shooter250: I drained and refilled with new filter after the change just to be safe. I
don't know if Toyota has any official recommendations.
shooter250: If it has the 2.2L engine, I think I would be similar, but I haven't seen
one yet. Good Luck
