SOURCE: 2.2l toyota camra engine has pressure leaking from engine when oil fill is removed from valve cover, is this normal, i also have small oil drip at pan gkt.

replace the pcv valve. If it is not working it will allow pressure to build up in the crankcase. this will cause leaks everywhere.

SOURCE: need the cylinder head torque settings on a toyota

Tighten in several passes to 44 foot pounds.

I just wanted to add. Since this is an aluminum cylinder head, I hope you loosened the head in the loosening torque pattern. The pattern opposite of the torque tightening pattern. If not, you stand the chance of warping the head.

Again, since it's an aluminum head, it needs to be checked for flatness. Most aluminum heads need to be surfaced before re-installing.

Tightening torque pattern is as follows:

1.The Drivers side of the engine is the Left side.
From the Front going towards the back; the bolts are numbered 10, 6, 1, 3, and 7.
From the Front going towards the back on the Passenger side; the bolts are numbered 8, 4, 2, 5, and 9.

The Exhaust and Intake Camshaft Bearing Cap bolts go to 9 foot pounds. Tighten gradually. One bolt to the other with so many foot pounds, work back, and forth up to 9lbs.

Camshaft Timing Pulley bolts go to 43 foot pounds. (In a tightening sequence, and gradually)

You'll need to remove the bolts on the motor mounts and jack up the front of the engine to get enough clearance to get the pan clear once all the pan bolts are removed.

How can I remove oil pan on 1991 toyota pickup 2wd 2.4 L


There are two ways to get the clearance required to remove the oil pan.
Start by draining the oil pan, after all the oil is out remove the 16 bolts and two nuts holding the oil pan on. You can use a oil pan seal cutter to break the seal or if you don't have one just use a putty knife (it okay to scratch the pan a little but do not bend the flange!) There are two strut bars under the engine that need to come out. One is a square tube about a 1.5 feet long and the other is a typical tubular strut bar, remove both of them.

Once the oil pan is loose the easiest way to get it out is to lift the engine about 2-3 inches. Start by hooking up an engine lift to the front lift point on the engine. You will be pivoting the engine on the transmission mount so you only want to lift at the front of the engine. On the passenger side undo the two bolts on the sides of the motor mount (should be 14mm) and on the driver side undo the nut in the center of the mount (should be 17mm). Now lift the engine 2-3 inches and the oil pan should be able to slide out. Unfortunately the oil pan takes up the entire front part of the engine so there is no room to use a jack if you dont have a car lift.

If you dont have access to an engine lift the you will have to remove the steering rack from below the engine. There are three ball joints that will need to be separated so you will need a pickle fork or some tough screw drivers to pry them apart. Undo the two castle nuts and ball joints on the passenger side and the one on the driver side and undo the big bolt from the pinion arm. You should be able to remove the steering rack now and the oil pan should be able to just come straight down.

How to cange and oil pan gasket on a 87 monte carlo


The oil pan is at the bottom of the engine. You might have the exhaust in the way, in which case you need a helper so that you can remove the exhast from the engine and take the entire pipe from the vehicle. From there, make sure you drain all the old oil from the engine and pan. Unthread all the bolts that surround the old oil pan gasket (you may have to remove the starter motor to gain access to a few bolts). Lower the pan carefully off the engine block (the oil pump and oil filter screen are within the oil pan. You want to make sure not to damage these componets or the baffle inside the oil pan). Your new gasket may have four retainers-especially if it's a Felpro gasket. These retainers go into the corners of the engine block mating surface for the oil pan. Slide your gasket up onto the retainers and engine block, then put your oil pan onto it (the retainers will hold it loosely in place. Put all the bolts but the four corners into the engine block. Remove the retainers and replace the bolts. Reconnect the exhaust pipe. Fill engine with oil, run, and check for leaks.

Replace oil pump


Oil Pump is in the oil pan.. You would have to take the pan out. To get the pan out you either have to raise the motor up or remove crossmembers.

Car/1990 Toyota Corolla


If Biggy1 has described it right, I think when you remove the WIRE to the spark plug ( not the plug itself ) and oil jumps out, there is a cylindrical seal that needs replacing and one does not need to even remove the cylinder head.
I have the same problem with my corolla. On the other hand if Biggy meant when removing the SPARK PLUG oil was on the contacts....
