Remove the battery negative cable. If you have a radio with a security code be sure that you have the code before unhooking the battery or you'll not get the radio working again after you're done. If you dont have the code leave the battery connected but be careful of dropping tools in the engine bay especiall around the starter and alternator
Remove the plug leads and mark each ones' position on the lead with masking tape. Remove the air cleaner feeder pipe from the manifold and the throttle cable by undoing the lock nut and unhhoking from the throttle. Remove the PCV pipe along with the valve from the RH bank valve cover.
Removing the valve covers themselves involves undoing the philips head screw around the edge of the cover. They can then just be pulled off.
When fitting the new gasket make sure that it is properly seated in the groove in the valve cover all the way round. If it wont stay in you can use red RTV sealant (or any high heat silicone sealant/gasket maker) to keep it in place. Refitting is the reverse of removal. Readjust the throttle cable by having someone press the gas pedal to the floor and see that the throttle opens all the way.

Where is the starter solenoid on a 1994 Toyota pickup. V-6 2 wheel drive. Is it on the passenger side close to the cab.


I think you'll find that the solenoid is part of the stater assembly itself. If the V6 is anything like the 4 it isn't especially fun to remove the assembly.

I need a step by step outline on how to change valve cover gaskets on a v6 1988 bronco xlt


First off you need to disconnect the battery. then you will need to take the plug wires off be sure to number them per cylinder. NOTE on the passenger side you have cylinder starting from the front of the engine 1-2-3 3 being at the back of the engine. on drivers side you have 4-5-6 6 being at the back of the engine. firing order is clockwise- 1-4-2-5-3-6.. then you will have vacuum lines that have to come off so you would need to mark those as well as to where they go, you can use masking tape and a fine point black marker. You must take out the altenator for better clearance on the passenger side and you may have to loosen the distributor to have clearance because of the ignition module if it is in the way. most hoses and fuel lines can be lifted up with a bungie cord and connected to the hood for getting those out of the way. the biggest pain is the wiring harness for the engine that runs through the pentium you can wiggle it enough to bungie it up out of the way. you may also find that you have to remove the heater hoses also since that will give you more clearance on the passenger side. the bolts are a 10 mm they also should have a spreader on them that you must look for under the bolt very important to put these back on. carefully lift and remove the vavle covers. clean all gasket and material off of the engine and on the vavle covers you want them clean enough to eat off of.. check vavle covers where the bolts attach to see if the vavle cover is straight if not then use a board under the vavle cover lip to tap the holes back down from the underneath side to get them straight. once all this is done then you need to get i suggest the cork felpro gaskets and some black sealant for valve covers. once the vavle covers are clean and ready for install then coat the valve cover where the gasket goes with sealant and let it setup- very important. then coat the gasket on one side and put it on the valve cover the valve covers have cutouts to where the tabs on the gaskests go then install on the valve cover. then coat the gasket again and let it setup for awhile very important. then reinstall the valve covers using a criscross pattern staring from the center out then tighten all bolts the same . very important do not over tighten the bolts just snug them up otherwise it will leak-reason the valve covers will warp by the holes.. and let the vehicle sit for about 12 hrs to make sure the silicone is set up.. it is a good weekend project did my fathers took about 2 days sat-sun but never leaked since..

I have a 1994 Nissan pickup. v6 manual trans. I get a loud hum as I drive. But when I press the clutch in, the hum stops. release clutch and hum starts. Could this be the Clutch fan?


No, By pushing in the clutch to stop the hum all you are stopping from turning is the transmission and ( transfur case if 4 wheel drive ) the engine is still running ..and some parts in the rear differential . I have had 4 nissan pickups and currently drive a 1995 pickup, without actually hearing the noise I would look toward the transmission, these Manual transmissions are very prone to bearing failure. This has happened to 2 of the one's I have had including the one I have now. You can also see as time goes by if the noise is quieter in fourth gear than others because this is direct drive and not as many trans bearings are involved Good Luck

Leaking coolant from head gasket area and valve


Well the head gasket job will cover the valve cover gasket ( you have to do one to get to the other) Bring it to a repair shop its about a $1500 job.

Overheating and water mixed in with oil


Absolutely correct. Have cylinder head dye tested and checked for warpage before re-using. Do not run the engine any more than necessary ( into the garage or onto flatbed on it's way to shop) or you risk doing damage to engine bearings.
