SOURCE: blown head gasket??? 1992 toyota pickup 22Re

sorry i still think its a gasket problem,or water ports---but without bringing it to yard for me to have a look its a bit difficult and iam in spain.These *** motors use a smaller rad cap with two seals in ,so it can draw the coolant back in on cooling,but iam of the opinion that its drawing in a slight water ingression causing the idle problem.Go on give it a birthday and pull the head off and check its level and not warped ,also the water ports are not dissolved to any extent.

SOURCE: Engine oil moisture

Known issues or not,It sounds like the head gasket is blown,or it has a cracked head.If it was water it would be thick and light grey in color on the dip stick,But yellow indicates antifreeze leak that has not had time to mix with the oil.

SOURCE: oil appearing in radiator, 4afe engine, is there awater gallery behind oil pump? checked head gasket looked fine

Since there is way more pressure from the oil pump than there is pressure in the cooling system oil can leak into the cooling system and coolant not leak back due to the pressure differential.It is very easy to have a head gasket leaking and not see where the leak was with a visual inspection after disassembly. I would inspect the head for cracks and if it is ok clean the block and head and have the head checked for warpage and if it is ok replace the head gasket and you should be good to go.

SOURCE: 2000 camry. blown head gasket (daughter drove car

Yes, you can, but not exactly recommended. If you are going to go that deep into it, then might as well do everything else. However, being unemployed tends to have a negative impact on the wallet....

I suspect it is more than just rings. I think that the walls have been scored badly as well. You may be able to use a borescope to take a peak into the cylinder through spark plug hole. Move the piston to bottom of stroke, and see what you can see. If scarred, much work will be needed. If hatches look alright, then you might be able to get away with just rings.

What kind of compression are you getting on #1 vs #2? This also might be a blown headgasket into an oil passage, or the head (perhaps block?) is ever so slightly warped in this area.

2006 ford f150 xlt 5.4 triton shakes terribly bad at stay up and stalls and also has an oil leak somewhere near the drivers side manifold. Rpms jump up to 1200 ish and down to 1000 rpms.


how many miles on engine? plugs ever been replaced? computer is trying to compensate for engine miss, this will effect fuel trim and (i a c ) idle air control valve. rpm will go up and down, check EGR operation, and ports for clogging and if who ever pulls plugs make sure they have done a triton engine before. loosen 1/4 turn engine hot, soak plug holes with brake cleaner and PB Blaster penetrant let set over night then remove plugs. blow cylinders out meaning spin engine over before installing new plugs. hope this helps

How to check and add ATF


Best to do this when the engine/transmission are warmed up. Park it on a level surface and, with the engine running, shift into each gear and then put it in Park (emergency brake applied). With the engine running, pull the transmission dipstick out and check the level against the cross-hatch pattern on the dipstick. Just like checking your oil. If it's low, add proper fluid by pouring it into the dipstick tube until the fluid level falls within the cross-hatch pattern. Do this a little at a time so as not to overfill it.

Drained transmissoin fluid instead of motor oil on my Ford Explorer XLT, how do i refill transmission fluid?


Insert drain plug, tighten back up. Open hood, look for the transmission dipstick (BE SURE NOT TO USE THE OIL DIPSTICK) refer to your manual or dealer as to it's location. Obtain the proper transmission fluid for your vehicle, get a small funnel that will fit in the dipstick tub (remove the dipstick) and pour in an amount less than specified by your owners manual. Turn on engine, let run for a minute or two then take reading. If your level is low then add small amounts until the desired level is reached. DO NOT OVERFILL. If you're uncomfortable with this procedure, it's best to get assistance.

1987 Toyota Camry 2 liter engine. How much oil do I put in with a change of filter? Thank you.


The safest way to be sure you don't overfill the motor with engine oil is: after draining the oil pan and installing the drain plug, put the new filter on and add three quarts of approved oil to the engine. pull the dipstick and wipe it clean, re-insert and check the accurate oil level. there should be oil either at the very bottom of the dipstick or between two holes or on what looks like a hashmark. if the oil is at the bottom of the dipstick, add one more quart, then start the engine. let it run for about 30 seconds then shut if off. check the dipstick just like before. The oil level should be right at the top oil level mark on the dipstick. It's ok if it is a little low but NOT OK to be above the line or mark.

How much motor oil do i need for my ford f350 how many gal


if it is a gas engine it should use 5 quarts, unless it has a heavy duty oil cooling system, then it may need up to seven quarts. Fill the motor with the first five quarts, the check the oil level with the oil dipstick. If its still low add one half of a quart at a time while checking level each time you add a half quar untill it show full on the oil dipstick..
