SOURCE: need to find specks on cylingder head for 1996 toyota tercel

The cylinder head bolt torque is a 2 step process.

First: Torque all of the bolts to 45 Nm (450 Kgf-cm or 33 ft lbs.)
Replace any head bolt that will not torque to the above specs.

Second: after all ten bolts are torqued to the above specs, the head bolts are then "Torqued to Distance"...

Starting at the center bolts, retorque all ten bolts an additional 90 degrees.

Hope this helps, the graciousness of a FixYa rating would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: oil leak problem with 1996 toyota camry

I am going to see a mechanic - my trusted mechanic who does not nickel and dime me - to see what this is. I have the same problem and he told me he has never done this job on a Camry and is unsure. Given the miles, he has suggested that maybe it is time to part ways with the car. I am going to ask him if he will put some florescent dye in it and let me drive it for 50-100 mi and then check to see where the leak is and fix it. Let you know what happens. I have to try, the car is solid.

SOURCE: To change the oil pan gasket in a 93 Tercel

Stock the car doesn't come with an oil pan gasket but you can order one from rockauto.com you don't have to remove the A/C compressor for any of the jobs you listed. If you want to change the timing belt you need to remove the plastic rock guard under the motor on the passenger side. remove the spark plugs and using the socket turn the engine from the crankshaft clockwise until you are at TDC on #1 cyclinder. (compression stroke) Next remove the upper and lower plastic timing belt covers. The idler pulley is the one with the spring. Loosen the nut and remove the spring then you can remove the timing belt. It really isn't that hard to do. Maybe one afternoon.

SOURCE: 1995 toyota camry leaking oil from behind the

either the cam seals are leaking or the valve cover gasket is leaking into the timing cover. maybe even head gasket... but in most of the cases like oil leaking from behind the timing cover the camshaft seal is the faulty .and replacing the camshaft solves the problem. no its not a costly part to be replaced. you can get it from a local car repair tech or from www.autozone.com service center.they also deal in parts. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

1988 Toyota tercel. How do I change timing belt?


Yes, you do. Also be sure and set the engine at TDC of compression stroke of # 1 cylinder. Remove crank bolt and pulley, remove timing cover...you may also have to remove the front engine mount to get the cover off. Use a jack and a piece of wood under the oil pan to hold the engine up.

Do the timing belt cover on a 1996 camry have a seal or gasket that can leak oil, mine seems to be leaking for around that area. If so how to replace the seal/gasket?


The timing cover itself does not seal any oil from leaking. It is just a cover to prevent debris from getting into the timing belt and ruining it.

To find the oil leak you will need to remove the timing cover and inspect the seals behind the cam gear, crank gear, and oil pump drive gear, and the oil pump to block seal. The most common leaks on these are the cam gear.

1989 tercel major oil leak passanger side. how do i change the oil pump gasket? do i need to change timing belt too? N where is the unit located? is it under the cover between the valve cover and oil pan?


The oil pump is located under the black timing cover , however your leak is likely the lower main seal under that cover as well , your oil pump will be on the upper right side , you should replace them both and the timing belt while your there considering the cost of the parts , it is good insurance you wont lose your belt while you still own your car and have to go back in again , it is not hard to do just be patient , also when you loosen off your timing belt tensioner '' to remove the belt ''dont forget to re tension it after you replace it

I need but cant find a Chilton manual for my 1995 tercel. All I find are up to 1994. 1995 was the first year of the fifth generation Tercel so I doubt 94 would work. I need to find something so I can...


I only found a front crankshaft seal replacement not the whole crankshaft: Front Crankshaft Seal REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION 1.5L (5E-FE) Engine Tercel NOTE: The front oil seal can be removed from the engine without removing the oil pump.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. On vehicles equipped with an air bag, wait at least 90 seconds before proceeding.
  2. Remove the front covers and the timing belt.
  3. Remove the crankshaft timing belt sprocket. WARNING
    When removing the front seal, be extremely careful not to damage the crankshaft.
  4. Using a knife, cut off the oil seal lip.
  5. Tape the end of a flat bladed tool to avoid damaging crankshaft. Pry out the oil seal using the taped end of the tool.
  6. Inspect the oil seal riding surface on the crankshaft for signs of wear or damage. To install:
  7. Wipe the seal bore with a clean rag.
  8. Apply multipurpose grease the lip of a new oil seal.
  9. Drive the oil seal into place using tool SST 09309–37010 or an equivalent seal installer tool. Make sure the seal surface is flush with the oil pump case edge. Work from the front of the cover. Be extremely careful not to damage the seal.
  10. Install the sprocket without disturbing the Woodruff key.
  11. Install the timing belt and front covers.
  12. Connect the negative battery cable to the battery.
  13. Start the engine and check for leaks

- distributor shaft o-ring (appears on top of transaxle housing)
- oil filter bracket to block o-ring seal (drips on front bank exhaust)
