Camshaft seal must be replaced when the engine is cold. Take off valve cover and then the upper timing cover and take off the camshaft sprocket and the timing belt will come off too. Use a small screw driver to pull the old seal off and then force in the new one. Then pull back the sprocket and timing belt. If the engine is hot, the timing belt will not go back on the sprocket until the engine is totally cool down overnight. Or if you want, you can set the camshaft to TDC and take off the rocker arm assembly, take off the seal and put the new one on and reinstalled the bolts to the rocker arm assembly and then do the valve adjustment.

How do change crankshaft seal on toyto 4runner sr5 97


front seal --remove harmonic balancer/ front pulley
if it is a belt for the cam shafts set it on tdc no1 piston so that all the marks line up then remove the belt and the bottom pulley to get to the seal
if it is a chain the seal will be after the balancer
if it is a rear main seal, remove the transmission and flywheel
best advice is to get a workshop manual for the vehicle and follow the directions and photos closely

Replacing the cam seal. You had to pull the timing belt. Because you had to remove the cam gear. This is where the problem is. Reset the timing and follow the manual to exact procedures. I recommend you replace all the timing components. Also, when you set the timing belt tensioner, Pry on it to get maximum tension. Before you put it together, turn the crank shaft two full turns (by hand/wrench/socket. Make sure it is on the marks. then reassemble.

Is it bad to replace the cam and crank seals, while doing the timing belt, without removing the shafts i.e. cutting and prying them out)?


Haynes manuals get their information from factory service manuals, so I believe you could do as described in the Haynes book. Just be careful not to scratch up the seal surface on the shafts.

That seal typically comes with a pack that includes all the cam bearing seals and the valve covers seals. It very easy to replace. Remove the valve cover and discard the old seal, remove the old cam shaft bearing cap seals. Replace the bearing cap seals and the valve cover seal and replace the cap and cover. Tighten the bolts to about 30 lbs and that should resolve the problem.

Is the front engine seal related to the time chain tensioner seal got a link behide the timeing belt


Don't quiet understand your question...but here's some insight.

The chain is under the valve cover/s ( 1.8t and some 2.8 V6.) and drives 2 or 4 cam shafts.

If it is the VR6 engine then the chain is in the front of the engine.

1.8t has seals on at cam sensor at rear of head and seals at front for crank and cam. To install it needs belt removed for front seals. 2.0 gas engine same except no rear cam seals.

All oil seals are now Teflon and a new instal procedure must be followed. Briefly : Installed dry...allowed to sit 4 hours before engine started.

Post again if this does not answer your question. We need year and model to give you a definitive answer.

Main seal


First is it a front seal ,or rear main seal,(front seal,being were you see the pulleys and fan belts,,you have to look at the bottom pulley,follow the shaft to the motor,where the shaft goes into the motor is the front seal,the pulley and everthing behind it has to come out then you pull out the seal,auto zone actually has free tool rental that you can pull the seal,and a tool to put it back in,if a rear main seal its where the shaft from the transmission meets the back of the motor,youll have to pull the trannsmission back,check where you see the oil leek from,the front seal you can do if mechanically inclined,but if its the rear you should take to a mechanic,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote
