Depending on the year and size of engine but roughly about $800 a side at the dealership and a good local mechanic about $300 a side.I would charge $200 a side just trying to give you a better scope of what you are looking at.

SOURCE: Question on price of repair to fit valve seals

I have a 1991 escort 1.9...It's burning bluish smoke. It runs awesome though. It has 188,000 miles on it. Can I use an additive in the oil or should I look into replacing the valve seals/guides? Is this exspensive?

Toyota Caldina 1999, too smoke from exhaust


if it is diesel and you have black smoke you need fuel injectors either serviced or replaced also you must check the engine valves clearance. If your smoke is blue white smelling unburned fuel renew injectors.If it is blue white smelling oil and diesel then you will have piston rings and valve steam seals.

Leaking valve seals. I want to know the cost to replace versus trading in the vehicle. The vehicle has 176000 miles and is in perfect condition. In fact, the original brakes still have 2/3 of the pads...


Hello
The valve stem seals can be replaced without removing the cylinder head(s) using special tools, so the cost would be be around $600.00 for the V6 engine and about $350.00 for the 4 cylinder engine. Since you don't mention which engine you have I provided both estimates. Keep in mind the parts to do this are the least amount of the cost (about $30), the major cost is labor, labor rates vary wildly from state to state even city to city, so get multiple estimates, Any well trained technican and well equipped repair shop can do this basic repair. If the new seals don't correct the problem which I assume is smoke then the engine has other much more expensive problems like worn piston rings and worn valve stem guides.

Well looking at the age of your car,it would need a valve seals replacement,in order to fix your problem.This would cost you around for about 1500-2000 $.

Replaced crank seal on 97 intrepid 3.5 ,why is there still an oil leak?


Because there are also cam seals & valve cover gaskets which could leak. (Both at top part of engine( Usually if you hot steam clean engine--restart engine--watch closely & may see where oil starts to leak again.

White smoke coming from tailpipe? Slight knocking noise. 99 Camry.


White smoke or steam? Smoke is oil buring and steam is coolant steaming. If this is steam, you have a blown head gasket...if oil, it could be either a oil ring problem or a valve seal problem.

I have a 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5L that is leaking oil into the spark plug tubes; can these seals be replaced or does the valve cover have to be replaced?


Yes, you need a Rocker cover (valve cover) Gasket kit. Remove the valve cover, remove all old O-rings and cover gasket, clean grooves and mating surfaces without gouging or scratching them, put the new gaskets on as per factory recommendations, tighten to the proper torque and you're done. The spark plug holes in the cover are part of the valve cover gasket kit. Any Napa, Car Quest, Pep Boys, Auto Zone will have it.

I have lots of white smoke coming from tail pipe when starting


White smoke is either steam or coolant. Oil smoke is blue, fuel is black. The smoke is water or coolant boiling and then coming out the exhaust as vapor.

If the weather is cold, water will condense in the exhaust system after shutdown, then come out as steam on startup. This is OK. If you see the smoke after driving on the highway for an hour or it is an all-the-time event, you have a problem.

If you have a problem, most likely, at this age, it is a leaking head gasket. Possibly the cylinder head is cracked. Valve problems are possible but less likely. Keep track of how much coolant you add to keep it at the full mark. Obviously, this is expensive to fix.

The problem was bad/worn valve stem seals which allowed oil to seep into the cylinder heads when the engine wasn't running and burn off when the engine was started creating the white smoke. If it is valve stem seals, they are not too expensive to replace however I would suspect your mechanic will want to do a complete valve job which is a little more costly.

Hope thos help (remember comment and rated this).
