SOURCE: rear valve cover removal for 94 camry se v6

The best way to remove the rear valve cover is to remove the intake plenum. There is really no other way to do it. It is not a hard job, removing the intake plenum, but, trying to tackle the rear cover without taking off the plenum is almost impossible. If he does remove the plenum, make sure he replaces the plenum gasket. Hope this helps.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

SOURCE: upper engine knock

I had the same problem with my 1999 Cobra Convertible, it sounded like valve problem, but ended up being, a wrist pin noise! Replaced the enging and trans, found a new Engine thru Trans, with everything on it for $4300, sold the old one (with the noise) on e-bay, for $4300 plus shipping.
The drivetrain now has about 10k miles on it, no problems! Have someone check for wrist pin noise!
This is a Roush Cobra Convertible, I will sell for $12,500, with a new top! Pictures avalible!

SOURCE: I can't remove the valve cover on my 99 kia sportage.

Remove Mass Air Flow pipe from Valve cover, then detach hose at rear of valve cover, and hose on left hand side.Remove Plastic Spark Plug cover, and remove coils (leave plugs). Remove all Bolts from inside plug cover (x8) and 9 from the outside (the last one is from behind the timing belt cover. The rear ones are tough, as there is little space to work.Then gently remove the valve cover, you may have to divert the spark cables and small hoses behind the Transmission fluid dip stick.Remove and refit the seal / gasket, and ensure there is a little oil on the top of the block when you replace the valve cover, just tighten bolts to hand tight fit, (you may need to put a piece of newspaper between the screwdriver/wrench handle and your hand to gain sufficient grip.Reverse the process and you should be good to go.

How to change cam sensor on pontiac GR AM 3,4L 1999


Place a jack underneath the engine with a block of wood on it as to not damage the engine and pump up the jack just enough to keep the engine from sagging down. Then remove the engine mount near the power steering unit. Removing the motor mount doesn't have to be done, but it makes it easier to remove the power steering pump (your choice). Remove power steering pump and set it aside keeping all the hoses attached. Camshaft position sensor is located beneath power steering pump. It should be held on by 1 bolt if I remember right. Disconnect the 2 wire harness and remove sensor.

support engine and remove front engine mounts, you'll have to remove your upper intake and some EVAP hoses, some other parts mounted to your intake and your ignition module from the rear valve cover the bolts should be either 8mm or 10mm, make sure to clean the valve cover of all old gasket material before reinstalling with new gaskets!

Are the valves adjustable on my 99 Cherokee 4.0? If so, how can I adjust them?


If your valves were fine in the past and they suddenly began to make noise then its a lifter or a cam problem. hydraulic lifters are not adjustable. 99 Cherokee 4.0 didn't have solid lifters.

99 grand am gt 3.4 no compression on either the 5th or 6th cylinder and blowing exhaust out of the intake. Any suggestions??? please help!!!


Remove valve covers If rockers for those cylinders move as far when cranking as all others do then likely you have a valve problem. if not, then cam is shot. Since you have exhaust coming from intake, I'd bet on bad valves. you will know more after you tear it down.(no quick easy cures for this one.)
