There is a gear at the end of the distributor that keeps the engine in time. Take out the distributor and see if you can pull out the gear.

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Corolla - Valve COver Gasket Replacement

You need an aftermarket serviice manual from Haynes or Chilton. They will have that kind of info.
I know of no car (I don't know them all) where that is needed and depending on the cover material (sheet steel or cast), could lead to warping and new leaks. I always use a thin film of silicone whether it is specified or not and there are torque specs for ALL valve covers I have ever seen.

SOURCE: 2005 toyota corolla motor oil capacity?

if you have a 1ZZ engine

4.2 quarts, 4.4 quarts with oil filter change

if you have the 2ZZ engine (XRS model) it is

4.4 quarts, 4.6 quarts with oil filter change

NOTE these are updated capacities that reflect changes identified in TSB: TSB-0134-08 issued July 15, 2008.
Your owners manual will reflect a lesser quantity that Toyota has since revised.

Before you could proceed please ensure that the following sub assemblies in good working condition:
- Battery health and it specific gravity.
- Alternator assembly.
- Starter motor assembly.
- Make sure that battery to engine ground thick cable is neat and firm.
- Check battery to chassis/body ground connection.
If the problem persists, check the following:
- Valve clearance.
- Distributor cap and rotor for any crack or corrosion.
- Ignition coil in the distributor assembly.
- Ignition module in the distributor assembly.
- Distributor assembly.
Hope that works.

Oil leak in front of engine around the distributor. top of engine


Its either the valve cover gasket or the o ring that seals the distributor.
It could be coming from either, so look for oil on the valve cover above
the distributor. If you see oil there its the valve cover.
If you dont see oil coming from the valve cover above the distributor, then look or touch
the bottom of the distributor and if there is oil there then the distributor oring is
whats leaking.

My 92 Corolla died on the freeway. It acted like it ran out of gas. The fuel filter was clogged, changed it. Then it started, ran rough. Then it wouldn't start again. Changed fuel pump. Still won't start....


Check to see if your timing belt broke. Remove the Distributor cap and watch the rotor as the engine cranks. If the rotor spins then the Timing belt is at least in place. If it doesn't spin then the Timing chain/belt has broken and will need to be replaced. You will also have to have the valves checked to verify they have not bent after making contact with the piston heads.

Leaking oil left side of motor


Since it's not clear whether you mean driver side or passenger side, I will address both.

On the driver side, the most common leak is from the distributor. This can be caused by the distributor shaft exterior o-ring, or it can be caused by the distributor shaft interior bearing seal. To determine which it is, remove the distributor. First detach the spark plug wires, then undo the bolt that holds the distributor to the head, then pull the distributor out of the head. You will see the o-ring on the exterior of the distributor shaft. This is a $0.50 part, so just replace it with a new one as long as you have the distributor out. The bearing seal is on the inside of the distributor. To inspect it, undo the three bolts holding the cap to the distributor body. Pop the rotor off the shaft, the unclip the inside plastic cover. If you see any oil inside the distributor or the distributor cap, this means the seal is leaking and must be replaced. You can get a seal and bearing replacement kit from kbox.ca. Or, you can just buy a new distributor. Note: To get the distributor back in place you must align the shaft correctly with the notch in the camshaft. There is a right way and a wrong way. If the shaft seems to be aligned but does not go in, pull it out and rotate it 180 degrees, then put it back in.

The other possibility on the driver side of the engine is the main seal between the engine and transmission. If this is the case, you would have to either drop the transmission or pull the engine to replace it.

What if the oil is leaking on the passenger side? If it's coming from behind the timing belt cover, there is a camshaft seal and a crankshaft seal, both of which can leak oil. To get to them, you will have to remove all accessory belts and the alternator, remove the exterior crankshaft pulley, remove the engine mount (support the engine) and the timing belt covers, remove the timing belt, then the crankshaft pulley and/or camshaft pulley, whichever is necessary to replace the leaking seal(s).

Where else could oil be leaking from? If it's coming out from near the top of the engine, that's the valve cover gasket. Remove the valve cover and replace the gasket. While you're at it, replace the spark plug tube seals.

If it's coming out from near the bottom of the engine, it could be the oil pan gasket. Remove the oil pan and replace the gasket.

One more possibility for oil leakage: The head gasket. But in this case you would have noticed other symptoms besides just an oil leak.

Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.

Toyota Caldina cambelt broke. Valve damage?


Sorry to say there is most likely quite expensive damage to the valve train and pistons. A new cam belt can be installed and the motor rotated to see if it is turning freely after which you would do a compression check (lack of compression will indicate bent or broken valves). I've never seen a diesel break a belt and avoid damage, virtually always a catastrophic failure.

1987 toyota 22r engine truck won't idle or run well at lowere rpm. could it be the egr valve?


That is usaully the vacuum advance diaphram on the distributor. Its job to advance the distributor when at idle. The diaphrams inside rot and leak air, causing it not to advance. Take off the distributor cap and use a vacuum pump to individualy test each port (two of them) on the vacuum advance diaphram. You should see it pull back, if not replace it. They are sold at your local auto store, oddly its cheaper to get a whole distributor that has one for $100 that to get it alone for $150.
