Question about Toyota Tacoma

Cracked heads Looking at a 2002 Toyota Tacoma with 164,180 miles on it. I was really pumped on this truck. It's selling in an auction via email within my work so I thought I could get a good deal on it. However, they just told me it has cracked heads and needs a new motor! Does this even make sense? If the head is cracked I could just replace that and not the whole motor correct? How costly/hard will this be?

They are telling you that the cracked head may have damaged the engine. You can replace engine with a 50K engine from Japan through the internet supplier.

SOURCE: Cracked Head Gasket???

The cylinder that is missing will indeed set a code, all 96 up cars and trucks sold in the US have this self diagnostic ability, the system is called OBD 2
Yes you are right the repair should be performed for free if it is the same problem, head or head gasket, take this matter up with your local authorities dept of consumer affairs if the shop refuses to help you.

SOURCE: Head gasket blown. What is approximate cost to

    Considerations
  1. Many internal engine problems, such as a blown head gasket, cracked head or cracked piston, can be repaired without having to replace an entire engine.
  2. Potential
  3. While taking the time to replace an engine may seem labor-intensive and costly, it will add years to a vehicle's life and will save a car owner from the cost of having to buy a new car.
  4. Benefits
  5. Taking a car to a mechanic and replacing an engine with a used engine can cost between $1,000 to $2,000 for parts and labor.
  6. Solution
  7. Car owners interested in replacing their engines with new ones can expect to pay anywhere between $2,000 to $4,000.
  8. Speculation
  9. For those interested in doing the engine replacement themselves, purchasing specialized tools needed for the job is a cost to consider in addition to the price of a replacement engine.

The 22R engine is one of the best engines Toyota built.

With the head off, you should have had the head gasket surface machined and the head checked pressure checked for cracks. It seems you did so.

I can only assume, you MAY have put the bolts back in without bowing out the cylinder block bolt holes before installing the bolts. These bolt holes fill with oil and antifreeze when you remove the head.

Doesn't matter how careful you are, the bolt holes always fill with fluid.

If so, the bolt torque would be reached before full clamping of the cylinder head. Worst of all, the block could have been cracked by the hydraulic pressure in the bolt hole as you tightened the bolt.

to see if there is a possiblity of blown head gasket, check the oil and see if there is any coolant in the oil pan. If the oil looks like milky chocolate, you have a blown head gasket or cracked block/head

How do I get access to the spark plugs in my 2002 Toyota Tacoma? There is a air flow tube over two of the spark plugs and I can't figure out how to remove it.


Replacing 2002 Tacoma PlugsIf you're talking about a 6 cylinder, then it's fairly straightforward. The driver side has normal-looking plug wires, the passenger side has the ignition coils covering the plugs. In either case, remove and label the wires from the plug side, unscrew and remove the ignition coils from the other side. Using a spark plug socket (this is important, the rubber ring in the socket will hold on to the plug, which is deep inside the head) unscrew the plug, make sure the new plugs are gapped and replace them. It is wise to use some rubber hose to start the new plugs so you don't cross thread. Then replace the plugs and ignition coils.
It's probably worth replacing the plug wires at the same time.

96 Toyota Tacoma lacks take off power and stumbles


Any trouble light? Sounds like it might be misfiring during acceleration which is more related to ignition quality than timing. Check the spark plugs--if badly worn, replace them. Might need new spark plug wiring. Check the air cleaner. Replace the O2 sensor if the truck has a lot of miles. Look for loose or cracked vacuum hoses.
