Question about 1991 Toyota Corolla

Hello. Let me try to assist you the best I can, with the hope of achieving a FixYa rating from you for my assistance.
Changing the rear valve cover gasket on your vehicle would be not considered a "real" big job, but IS a time-consuming job.
In order to remove the rear cover, you first have to remove the intake plenum. If you do not remove the plenum, you can't get to the valve cover bolts that are under the plenum. After the plenum is off, the valve cover is easy to access. You will also need to replace the intake plenum gasket, if you do the job yourself.
I hope this information has satisfied your question.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance!

no need to bleed it at all,just turn steering from left to right and its bled.never done one but it depends on whats involved and what you need to remove to get at it.Also over the pond anything thats not come from motor city they dont know how?? to do it.Just like in europe if its american with auto box then its telephone numbers.Dont be scared just get a new pipe and allow a saturday morning to change it but make sure you borrow a set of pipe spanners first,like a ring with a **** in the end so you dont round off the nuts.Think they are either 16mm or 17mm heads.

i think its going to be the head gasket duto the way its leaking coolant. one of the water jackets maybe i would have it checked to be sure but it sounds like head gasket

have the system pressure tested for a few hours, if pressure drops and no leaks are found you may have a head gasket leak and the coolant is going out the tailpipe
