cyl-4=brakeAmp.
carb/manifold gasket=crank vent.valve.
airfilterhouse=valvecover vent.
Thats the 2K setup but it should be the same on 4K!

SOURCE: Water mixing with engine oil

5.7's had all kinds of problems with intake manifolds but it could also be a head gasket leaking. One way to check is to pull out your spark plugs and have a look at them. One of them will should be really white looking, that is the cylinder where the coolant is leaking into. A good rule of thumb (but not always true) is that if the coolant is leaking into one of the cylinders at the very front or very back of the engine, it is an intake leak. If the coolant is leaking in one of the middle cylinders, it is a head leak.
But the only way to know absolutly for sure is to pull the intake off and look for a break in the gasket, if you see that you know its the intake manifold. If you cant see any signs of leakage its probally a head problem. Another word of advice, there is an updated gasket from fellpro that lasts longer that the OEM gasket.

SOURCE: motor oil spitting out from the dipstick. No smoke, no blow by.

Have you checked for a PCV valve plugged? Not sure if there is one an that, but would sure look for one. Crankcase ventilation somewhere.

SOURCE: Recommended Brand and Grade of Engine Oil for Toyota 4K Engine

If you use a Toyota 4K engine, most manufacturers both engine and oil companies recommend a 20W-50 GRADE motor oil. We recommend Castrol. However, Castrol is kinda expensive. Try Petron Philippines products that can be purchased at their gasoline station shops. Castrol ranges from 800-850 (4-liters) while Petron oil products ranges from 490-550 only (4 liters). They both share the same addtives for 20W-50 oil grade.

I disagree with changing the MAF sensor. I had the same problem for about 4 years until today on my 2000 s10 4.3 4wd 125K. It runs like new, and all i did was paid 6 bucks for a can of mass air flow sensor cleaner from auto zone. Try this!! it was awesome the results

2002 Toyota Corolla oil change:3/3/2017 Mi:159,578 MI:now 164,530.Checked, no oil on the dipstick when checked. Why would this happen? Do you think the engine was damaged?


The engine was damaged before you check the oil why else would it burn all that oil? Now the engine bearings are most likely terminal.

White smoke just started coming out the exhaust. It smells like gas, not coolant. What could it be?


Has the vehicle been overheating or losing coolant? The symptoms you describe could point towards head gasket trouble (and other faults). Often, the exhaust fumes from a car with a failing head gasket will smell 'pungent' and 'sharp'.

Check the oil on your dipstick. If there's a greyish/cream sludge - sometimes referred to as 'mayonnaise' - this points towards coolant entering the oil system via a leaking head/head gasket.

Also check your coolant - is there any evidence of engine oil in it? Although the mayonnaise on the dipstick is usually the tell-tale sign of gasket problems.

If you suspect the head/head gasket try a special sealant such as:

My toyota 1n ended up with clean dipstick after 2000 km no oil leaks underneath and no white smoke from the exhaust what could be the problem


have you done anything to the engine ( rebuild with new rings etc). The oil has to go somewhere and the only place is out the exhaust as blue smoke.place the vehicle on a hoist and check under the floor pan area for signs of oil on the metal under the car as there may be an oil leak that is squirting out into the air stream under the car.

1990 Corolla started shaking after I accelerated rapidly (gunned the engine)


White smoke coming out of exhaust is water vapor. Blue is oil burning and black is carbon from unburned fuel.
U have water or coolant leaking into your combustion cylinders - not a good thing. Probably blown head gasket.

Check your oil - if it like a brown mud then the coolant has also gotten into the lubrication system.

My 2001 Toyota Highlander is burning oil but does not show the symptoms of oil burning. After 500 to 1000 miles, the dipstick does not show any oil. What would cause this and what solutions are there?...


If you see no signs of burning oil ie blue smoke from exhaust, ticking from the engine, then most likely you have a valve cover gasket leak. The reason you wouldn't see the oil in the driveway is the oil is burning off on the exhaust manifold. Check around the valve cover gasket for seepage (usually around the bolts).

Car uses alot of oil


Assuming you already checked for a leak, your car burning oil is a sign of your piston sleeves failing. When the piston travels up and down, oil is getting through to the combustion chambers (above the piston) where air and fuel is mixed and gets burned with the mixture. Is your exhaust smokey? A simple compression test will verify this, however the fix is an engine rebuild depending on severity and consumption rate.

Smoking and oil spitting out from under the hood


First of all check the cap and the dipstick. If they are intact then you need to degrease the engine and fill with oil. Then look while the engine irunning where the oil is leaking from before you know what is wrong. I hope this helps.

Ford C4 Auto gearbox spits oil


It sounds like it could be overfilled, but that will be easy enough to check on the dipstick. Should be checked with the engine idling in neutral. Otherwise, the trans could be overheating, causing the oil to expand to the point that it spits out the breather. Pull the dipstick and check the fluid condition, if it's dark and smells burnt, the trans may be slipping or overheating for some other reason, and it's probably time to get a trans shop involved. You should probably run an auxiliary cooler at the radiator area in the type of application you describe, especially if you're gonna be using the gas pedal fairly heavily! Sounds like a sweet car, lots of fun to be had in something like that.
