Hi there. I have a problem with a clients car Trajet 2002 V6 FWD 2.7 with my cams. I just replaced new head gaskets and had the heads planed cause some1 had run it out off water. So the problem is that i cant realine up the Cam gear to get the timming belt on. Since these run like a twin cam but 1 Timming belt sproket, and they run a chain on the 2 Cams internaly, can you tell me how you get these Cams to run true to with each other to be able to get the Timming belt on and have it perfectly timmed. I did mark every thing wen i took it all off But cant seem to get it back on right. Thank You Very much if you can help me. Im Morgan Dally

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.

2 Answers a4's overheating and seemingly no oil pressure.

well you may have put the gasket back on wrong blocking the oil hole which supplies the oil to the head, this would cause the low oil pressure and the oil light coming on.
If the gasket is on the wrong way it may be causing the overheating problem as well by blocking or partially blocking the water holes in the head that allow the water to get to the head and cool it down.
these are the only things I can think of apart from maybe a cracked block caused by the overheating but that would not explain the lack of oil to the rockers
Hope this helps

How do I replace my valve cover gaskets on my 1992 toy cam v6 3.0

this is relatively easy unbolt the cover from the head (this usually requires a 10 milimeter socket)once unbolted pull the cover off make sure you clean the old gasket off the cover and the head glue the gasket back to the cover and reverse the process used to take it off be careful not to over tighten the new gasket so as not to split it and cause it to leak.

the only thing that causes this is a blown head gasket or a cracked block, the head gasket is the most common problem, the block being cracked rare/

92 toyota camry v6 do they have 2 heads or just 2 cams

That is possible if it is not dual overhead cam if it is single overhead cam that would be right.

Head gasket

The best solution? Remove the heads, have them planed to true them up and put new gasket set on. Depending on how many miles the engine has on it, it may be needful to have the heads reworked. New valves guides, the valves ground and seated. If it has a lot of miles it could be best to purchase a set of remanufactured heads. If the engine is low miles a gasket set and planing the head will probably do it. If you just have one head plane, make sure to get the proper gasket for that head. The planed head will cause that bank of cylinders to have higher compression then the other non-planed side. You will have to get a thicker gasket for that side to keep the same compression. Your machine shop can tell you how much they took off. Hope that helps.

I have a 98 dodge intripid. The mechcanic said it has a blown head gasket. He said it would be cheaper to just get another engine. Can anyone tell me what it would cost to replace gaskets. I checked on new...

Problem is once the heads are off you need to have them checka nd probably planed and rebuilt. If the heads are also cracked than you will buy heads. In my area a head gasket job costs around 2-2500$ if it is a v6 15-1800$ for 4 banger. USed engine is a possibility but you can get a bum engine. I vote for sending to machine shop and having rebuilt. Other option is finding an already rebuilt engine and dropping in.
If minor leak you can try alumaseal. Awesome stuff. Is a fine aluminum powder taht fixes small leaks. Major blowouts can't be fixed by alumaseal.
