Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
I installed a new head and the truck was driven for about 3 wks till this. There is so much blow by that it blew the oil fill cap off the valve cover. Lots of smoke through exhaust. I looked in the converter and Cat is like new... Blown rings or bent valve is what I'm thinking. Please help
A combination of valves and rings
more likely rings or hole in the piston to get so much blow by as blow by is not from valve problems
the combination could be that a valve head broke off and punched a hole in the piston

Testimonial: "Ok, pulled the valve cove and exhaust rocker arm has excessive play. I know adjusted them properly before closing the head... I told my buddy to pour oil into the spark plug hole and see how quickly it makes it into the oil pan..."
