Did this video help you?

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)

jerry Dishman: Great video! really helps out,thanks!

adrian wellman: were abouts did u put the ultra grey

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 now. Thanks......

Abraham venegas: Should this be replaced if your car shoots out white smoke when you start it? thanks

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 problem?

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 side.

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 the video.

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 did.

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. Sorry

Nat Funk: I have a 93, and it is the same.

shooter250: yes

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 you.

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!

ToneUp 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 manual.

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
