Question about 1992 Toyota Paseo
Disconnect Batt, pull spark plugs and wires, and PVC hose. Remove six nuts from valve cover. crawl under pass side front wheel and remove the plastic rock gaurd under engine. Remove power steering belt and serpentine belt. Remove upper and lower timing chain covers. Before you remove the timing chain covers I would turn the motor clockwise until you are at top-dead-center compression stroke. that would be the #1 cyc. If your not sure how to do that look at the bigger pully on the front of your engine. There will be a grove across it. Using a 19mm socket and ratchet turn the cranklshaft until the notch aligns with the "zero" on the lower timing chain cover. Have someone else put there hand over the #1 cyclinder hole and when they feel pressure you are on the right stroke, stop when you align the notch with zero. Now take off the covers and remove the timing chain idler gear. It has a spring on it. Remove the belt. Now you need to remove all plumbing going to the head. Start with the thermostat housing hose and make sure all hoses are disconnected. Remove the fuel rail and exhaust manifold to make the access easier. Once everything is out of the way pull the valve cover and remove the 8 bolts securing the head. if I remember right you will need a very big metric allen wrench. Buy one that you can use with a 1/2 inch ratchet and extension. Do not reuse your head bolts they stretch after initial torque. Replace them and the head gasket. Hope this helps

You have to take the top part of the motor off to get to the head gasket. all the way down to the heads.
