Is it leaking if so I would. If not then there is no reason to replace.

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.

It is 1997 Toyota Avalon, there is a trace of overflow of coolant from the reservoir tank after test driving.(I wanted to buy that used car). Around the tank and coolant cap, some traces show overflo


The car may have a compromised head gasket, forcing air pressure into the cooling system, displacing water/coolant mixture and forcing it out into the reservoir.

This can be expensive to fix if it's the case, but it could be that it has a faulty radiator cap also.


does it have proper antifreeze/anti-boil mixture, or just plain water?
if it's plain water, it may indicate that this is an ongoing problem that the current owner hasn't fixed.

Check the cap and see if it seems loose, the spring inside should be firm, and the inner sealing ring (rubber) should not be cracked or damaged. if the system is leaking, this can cause similar issues where the coolant boils off into the reservoir.

if the cap seems fine, it will likely be a blown head gasket between a cylinder and a water passage, the problem will continue until the gasket is replaced.

Have oil in one of the spark plug cylinders what would be causing this ?


broken/worn piston ring(s). Each piston has 2 rings. These can be replaced by the DIY mechanic by
1) removing head of engine (remove head gasket - you'll replace it), then
2) manually wind the engine (with a ratchet wrench & socket) til the piston in question pops up
3) remove both rings (with ring pliers - available from any auto parts store)
4) install 2 new rings (with a ring installation collar - available at any auto parts store)
--- choose ring installation tool to the correct size for your pistons.
5) re-install head of engine (replacing head gasket)

Note that this procedure preserves the engine timing, so you need not reset it.

Just had a new cylinder head fitted to my 1997 toyota land cruiser , now its over heating what could be the problem .


It sounds like the head gasket is leaking and needs to be replaced. Keep in mind that the antifreeze is corrosive to the bearing to the engine so try to replace the gasket and engine oil soon as possible. Keep an eye on the oil level and condition, check to make sure that there is no antifreeze mixing with the engine oil. If your lucky, it could just be a bad thermostat and less work to replace the thermostat. Good luck
