Question about 1989 Toyota Corolla 2 Door
Now fearing that starter might burn
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.

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

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.

Check the backlash of the starter it may require a shimm if it has a high pitch wind when starting....make sure the flywheel isnt damnage or missing teeth...

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!
