If you give it time to cool off between starting attempts, it should hold up to it. If you use the starter for 15 seconds trying to start it, then give it a full minute to cool off before trying again.

Do you have compression in all cylinders? That and spark and gas is all a good-timed engine needs in order to run. Actually I would do it in this order: check for spark going to the spark plugs, if good, check that gas is getting into engine (carb or fuel injected? you would see gas coming out of either one- down the throat of the carburetor, or out the bottom of the fuel injector in a cone pattern, while cranking the engine over and watching). If spark and gas are good, then better check compression. See if your work really sealed the cylinder chambers. A compression test will verify this. Cause the next thing you will have to check is if the valve timing is right. You will need to make sure the timing marks are spot on. This may be a tedious job. Removing a few parts to check the timing marks.

So just remember, spark, gas, and compression. that's what the cylinders need to fire and run, but the timing has to be correct.

SOURCE: 2.2l toyota camra engine has pressure leaking from engine when oil fill is removed from valve cover, is this normal, i also have small oil drip at pan gkt.

replace the pcv valve. If it is not working it will allow pressure to build up in the crankcase. this will cause leaks everywhere.

SOURCE: 1993 TOYOTA TERCEL 1500cc Valve Seals Replaced now smokes much worse

You either have had the wrong valve seals installed, they are physically missing, or the valves are incorrect (too loose in the guides/stem too thin). The rocker arm seals will not contribute to your issue. If it did not have the oil smoke before you took the head off, the issue is with whatever the machine shop did. Valve seals have to fit TIGHT, or oil will go down the valve stem into the intake.
Take the head back to the machine shop & tell them to fix it. For free.

SOURCE: How do I change the starter in a 2000 Toyota Camry LE

i'm sure it's not the starter itself that is the problem, have the stater's solenoid checked...it might be stucked. It's quite a lot of work removing the starter but you can do it if you are willing enough to learn. You just need the right idea and tools to do it. Hope this will help save you bucks!

Installed new piston rings and gas is getting inside oil


valve not closing is from a bent valve. Black soot is from over fuelling and incomplete combustion. Oily chamber is oil from the rings. It si possible that more than one valve is bent as it occurs from turning the engine over without letting of the rockers when adjusting the valve timing.

WHAT CAUSE ENGINE JAM/THE ENGINE TOOK IN WATER THROUGH THE BREEDER HOLE


It is called hydrolic lock.It happens when you get fluid in the cylinder and the piston cant compress it and the valves are closed so there is no place for it to go. Pull the plugs out crank the engine over slow at first then fast to get the water out. Clean the plugs and reinstall and hope you didnt blow a head gasket or bend a rod at the least. Dont forget to change the oil and filter and check trans ect.

ONE FOULED SPARK PLUG


Either worn valve guides, valve guide oil seals on that particular cylinder, or worn piston rings. You need to perform a compression test to find out which one of these it is.

Compression check each cylinder with all plugs removed. Take notes on which cylinder has the weakest compression.

If no compression difference and if all operating within range, then change the valve guide oil seals on problematic cylinder.

If the cylinder shows a significant drop in compression, then drop no more than five or six drops of oil down the plug hole of the problematic cylinder, and perform the compression test again. The oil will temporarily seal any worn piston rings, so the pressure should rise when retesting if the rings are worn. If the pressure remains low, then your valves are not sealing properly and require attention.

My toyota is start burning engine oil besides the pistons rings what else can make that happen


if you have bluish smoke coming from the tailpipe, then it is bad rings. however the valve cover gasket on toyotas tend to start leaking with age as well and if there is not much smoke, the oil may be leaking onto the exhaust tubes or down the ports past the spark plugs into the cylinder.

1994 s10 truck has spark and fuel but will not start This all happened suddenly no warning signs


Hi, An engine that has fuel and spark, no serious vacuum leaks and cranks normally should start. The problem is compression 57f07a7.jpg If it is an overhead cam engine with a rubber timing belt, a broken timing belt a35cd82.jpg would be the most likely cause especially if the engine has a lot of miles on it. Most OEMs recommend replacing the OHC timing belt every 60,000 miles for preventative maintenance, but many belts are never changed. Eventually they break, and when they do the engine stops dead in its tracks. And in engines that lack sufficient valve-to-piston clearance as many import engines and some domestic engines do, it also causes extensive damage (bent valves and valvetrain components & sometimes cracked pistons). Overhead cams can also bind and break if the head warps due to severe overheating, or the cam bearings are starved for lubrication. A cam seizure may occur during a subzero cold start if the oil in the crankcase is too thick and is slow to reach the cam (a good reason for using 5W-20 or 5W-30 for winter driving). High rpm cam failure can occur if the oil level is low or the oil is long overdue for a change. With high mileage pushrod engines, the timing chain may have broken or slipped. Either type of problem can be diagnosed by doing a compression check and/or removing a valve cover and watching for valve movement when the engine is cranked. A blown head gasket 1e00f0b.gifmay prevent an engine from starting if the engine is a four cylinder with two dead cylinders. But most six or eight cylinder engines will sputter to life and run roughly even with a blown gasket. The gasket can, however, allow coolant to leak into the cylinder and hydrolock the engine.
Take care

Car/1990 Toyota Corolla


If Biggy1 has described it right, I think when you remove the WIRE to the spark plug ( not the plug itself ) and oil jumps out, there is a cylindrical seal that needs replacing and one does not need to even remove the cylinder head.
I have the same problem with my corolla. On the other hand if Biggy meant when removing the SPARK PLUG oil was on the contacts....

It sounds like your valve seals are getting old and are leaking oil into your pistons.As long as it is not using a lot of oil or fouling your spark plugs drive the heck out of it and look the other way when you first crank it up in the morning.
One other problem that will cause this is a cracked head or a leaking head gasket which is getting water on your pistons overnight. Watch for #1 low antifreeze in your radiator #2 higher than normal engine temperatures. This could be a serious problem that could cause expensive damage to your engine if not corrected.
