I can tell you upfront you must check your variable valve timing p1396 and 1384 as for code po197/198 thats your engine oil temp sensor.po102 check your mass air flow meter connection right behind the air filter housing where the air duct elbow is located.The sensor could be bad.p0112 intake air temp sensor code.ok the p1224 is the throttle postion control sensor.make sure your battery is good...seems like these codes are related to low voltage also...but 1st make sure your fix that oil leak.

Oil pressure sensor replaced 9/14/2015started to leak oil again. Valve cover gasket replaced 1/6/2016 9/14/2015 now leaking oil again

When you replace the rocker cover gaskets, clean the surfaces where the gasket contacts the heads and the rocker cover with alcohol and a rag. Make sure there is absolutely no oil residue on either surface. Use a silicon sealer and spread it on the side of the gasket that will touch the head. Position it and use the head bolts temporarily as guide pins to hold the gasket in place until the sealant dries COMPLETELY. Remove the bolts. Now put more sealant on the surface of the rocker cover and install the cover on the gasket gently so as not to disturb the gasket. Install the cover bolts and tighten firmly but not so as to squeeze or deform the gasket. If dine correctly, the gasket will not leak.

Simple steps to replace the Valve Cover Gaskets on a Jaguar XJ8?

Replace the valve cover gasket if the valve cover gaskets are leaking or if they're worn. The procedure is as follows:--
1)First carefully remove the nuts holding the valve cover to the engine head.2
2)Then pull the valve cover off from the engine head .
3)You can use flat-tip screwdriver to remove the valve cover.
4)It will be very dirty inside so you will have to clean the mating surfaces on both the engine head and the valve cover.
5)Take your time and clean it completely.

6)You can use a bead of RTV sealant on both mating surfaces.

7)Then carefully seat the gasket to top of the engine head.
8)The gasket can only be fitted in one way. So fit it properely.
9)Then tightly Press the valve cover to the gasket
10)And tighten the valve cover nuts secure.

This will help.Good Luck.

Do I have to use additional sealer on a metal head gasket for a 1995 Toyota tercel 1.5 dohc?

Did you have the head shaved? If not it is warped and will not seal. To answer you no, it is rare that any sealer is used on any gaskets on most engine parts. There are a few places where oil pans meet seals or valve covers with over head cams that do, but most modern engines do not need sealant on quality gaskets unless there is surface damage.
You did not mention if you torqued correctly and use new head bolts. This is considered very important.

My Jaguar Xj8 I had placed engine seal accidently into the oil instead of the radiator

You NEVER in---- my world ---use any sealant in any vehicle
systems-- as it is there for life

It will stop up a heater core
It will stop up a radiator
It will not or seldom be a fix for a head gasket replacement
Get the idea

Don't know what to tell you

Did it shut down from lack of oil pressure to save the motor?

How your going to get that out of the bearings,cam actuators,
oil passages,oil pump,sensors

I think your in BIG Trouble & need to ask many shops what
success they have had with that issue

I say stay out of the parts store chemical isle, with the exception
of LUBEGARD for transmission & power steering additives

Those are ALL, I Repeat ALL, I use & they actually not only work
but are necessary in those two items only (i once owned a trans shop)
I use NO other brands,no Lucus,no genie in a bottle

Just Mobil 1 Oil & Lube Guard & make the proper diagnoses
to all vehicles & do the necessary & painful repairs

Error code p1384 and 1396


Possible Causes:
- Bank 2 VVT solenoid valve to PCM PWM drive circuit fault.
- Bank 2 VVT actuator oil supply fault.
- Bank 2 VVT actuator stuck.

The biggest issues with vvts are oil supply issues. Useally debris like oil sludge in oil pickup screen, loose bearing clearances as an engine wears, and oil passages blocked/partially blocked to and in vvts. The first (i always shoot for cheapest potential likely fix) use a good engine flush(2 bottle for our higher than normal capacity engines) follow directions on bottle. Change oil and switch to a 20-50w. Leave out 1 quart and add 1 qt auto ****** atf(highly detergent, more so than engine oil and wont hurt anything) while you have overly ******** cam codes, it may be an issue of apply and blockage that keeps pressure in vvts too long when supposed to release. Most times its ******** cams( like the 1 i am doing right now....try this first and go from there, rememebr to clears codes and give time, you may have to clear codes a few times as it may continue to reset.

I have a pontiac and i keep blowing head gasket on number one cylinder. I have installed new heads and gasket lasted about five years. I was wondering what the correct head bolt torque is for a 1995...

cylinder head bolts, step one;33 ft. lbs, second step rotate an additional 90-degrees (1/4 turn). do not put any oil or sealant on gasket. the gasket should seal itself if torqued properly.

Intake to head bolt torque

Intake bolt torque is 11-14 foot pounds. Note:
to torque bolts & nuts, start in center using
crisscross pattern working outward. And as Far as the sealant goes, you shouldn't need any additional sealant since the new gasket has sealant.(just make sure both surfaces are clean an free of oil.) sometimes if the head or the block show signs of pitting on the matteing surfaces then you could use a litttle of that cooper spray gasket to coat the new gasket.
