    If you have a bad head gasket, compression from the cylinders is lost into the adjacent cylinder, as the head gaskets prevent this problem. The fuel smell that you are getting is from the fuel not igniting at the proper second...it is just getting pumped thru the system.

I've had mine blow twice on the EFI 3.0 engine. Toyota came with a beefed up gasket. Make sure that is the one they are using.

SOURCE: 1992 Toyota Previa van,Oil dripping onto exhaust manifold, replace head gasket? need a free manual!

The toyota previa uses a formed silicone gasket for the valve cover and the cover is held in place by metric shoulder bolts ( 10mm). The valve gasket leaks because you can't get enough preload on the bolts to re-seat the old gasket when it gets old and shrinks. The shoulder bolts only allow you to tighten the gasket enough to seat the shoulder on the bolt. If you continue to torque down the suspected bolts, you will snap the bolt off ( don't ask me how I know this ). You can either 1.)replace the old gasket with a new one or 2.) remove the existing bolts around the leak area and put in new metric bolts that do not have a shoulder. You may want to put in a small sleeve into the existing bolt hole but shorter than the thickness of the valve cover to account for the smaller diameter bolt. You can now torque down the bolt and get enough preload to seal the valve cover without removing the old gasket. Make sure you use a torque wrench ( in-lbs) or be very careful not to snap these small valve cover bolts.

SOURCE: 1991 toyota 4 runner heater does not work, the fan

The head gasket replacement wasn't done right if you still have overheating; this indicates that exhaust fumes are still entering the water jacket. Not using a thermostat will have a definite negative impact on power and fuel consumption.

On your heater: check for vacuum hoses not reconnected while this great headgasket job was being done.
There are dampers in the climate system that open and close to send the conditioned air to where you want it and these are controlled by vacuum from the intake of engine.

SOURCE: water leak under the intake manifold,1995 toyota 4 runner

There is a heater core bypass pipe that runs from the block (under the manifold) to the bacl of theengine where you will see a flat rectangular "sheet metal" thing with a pipe coming out of it. The a rubber hose connects. You need to pull the top air plenums and intake to get to it. The p[ipe flange bolts to the block with silicone rtv as a sealant.

SOURCE: 1995 Toyota 4 Runner rear window will not open, on

check to make sure that the wiper is not stuck in the window seal. Pull it out if it is and then try. The window will not roll down if the wiper is in that position.

1995 Toyota 4 runner why is my exhaust smoking really bad and smell like tranny fluid


I don't think its transimisson fuild .
Is the smoke white if so the head gasket is blowen.
Not really many ways transmission fuild can enter the combustion chamber unless the transmission cooler lines are breached inside the radiator.
Do you see antifreeze on the oil dipstick or oil floating on top of the antifreeze in the radiator white foem its 25 years old think about that

1995 runner looses power up hills and coasting. am going to repair, need to lead mechanic to area to check. exhaust system or head gasket? also smell antifreeze after turning motor off.


sounds to me like a bad headgasket. if they are bad. you will loose power and it will leak if bad enough. have a good one ! pull out oil dipstick. if it is a foamy substance on stick, then you have a bad head gasket. Pressurized exhaust gas can be forced into the coolant system through a cracked head gasket. When this happens, oil particles from the engine will often be blown in with the gas, causing pollution of the coolant system. The result is visible traces of oil in the coolant tank.

I have a 1995 toyota 4 cyl pickup, it keeps overheating.There was some white smoke coming out of the exhaust but when i changed the thermostat and purged the coolant system the white smoke stopped and it...


Somehow the coolant is getting into the exhaust system. Either by a blown head gasket, a cracked head or possibly a cracked block. If it's an aluminum head, that's probably it.

My toyota camry starts to over heat and cut off after driving it for 15 to 20 mins. It has coolant and oil but it starts to smoke behind the engine.


Sounds like a bad head gasket or head. Have the vehicles cooling system pressure tested to determine whether you have a bad head gasket or head or some other cooling defect ( water pump defective radiator) have then check cooling fans,and relays for operation.

My 1998 toyota camry 4 cylender car over heated top hose busted gasket on thermostate leaking car stop, so change out hose put new gasket ,added radiator fluid check for any leaks nothing so started car...


hi, it sounds like the head gasket has gone take out the spark plugs and check for signs of water also check the oil for signs of water as this to me looks and sounds like the head gasket has failed and will need replacing.

If water is not present then try starting the car with the coolant filler cap off and see if it starts if it does then this is head gasket failure if it still dont start then your going to need to get a compression test done and then this will tell you if the gasket is good or bad but to me it sounds like head gasket failure.

If the gasket needs replacing then you need to also check the water pump is working and also test the thermostat as any of these failing can cause the head gasket to blow again so make sure you get these checked ok.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
