Overheating fans may be cutting off or thermostat sticking, or radiator needs replaced.

    radiator is new and fan runs continuesly, thermostat is about 5 months old

    then the only other thing is maybe the heads weren't trued, i would have them trued when the new head gasket is replaced.

We change the head gasket we put it on now we have oil comminh up from vent hole that cross over on the vbank rear of the engine

What is year--make--model, not sure about m62? Are you talking about crankcase motor oil blowing out? If so, check for too much crankcase pressure. Too much pressure and it will blow oil out anywhere and everywhere it can. I can't tell if head gasket--cracked block--melted piston, several things could cause it.

1987 toyota pickup with 22r keeps blowing head gasket

Your head bolts are stretched, when it got hot it weakened the metal in the bolts which means that the bolts cannot hold the needed tension on the head. Replace the bolts and you will stop blowing head gaskets. Also use Genuine Toyota head gasket, It will be a bit dearer but they are much better than aftermarket options.

Head gasket blows every 15000mi have had the entire engine rebuilt , the engine still blows without water temp being high

was the head (or the block) re machined and measured with a level or also could be useing the wrong clearances of gaskets if the motor was ever modified

I have a 1987 toyota pickup 22r carburetor i replaced the head gasket 2000 miles ago and now it blew again i had the head milled and new head bolts and i used a felpro head gasket what do i do now?

The 22R engine is one of the best engines Toyota built.

With the head off, you should have had the head gasket surface machined and the head checked pressure checked for cracks. It seems you did so.

I can only assume, you MAY have put the bolts back in without bowing out the cylinder block bolt holes before installing the bolts. These bolt holes fill with oil and antifreeze when you remove the head.

Doesn't matter how careful you are, the bolt holes always fill with fluid.

If so, the bolt torque would be reached before full clamping of the cylinder head. Worst of all, the block could have been cracked by the hydraulic pressure in the bolt hole as you tightened the bolt.

Hi, I have a 96 Honda Civic. I have been having issues for the past 2 months now with the coolant getting so hot it keeps boiling out of my overflow container. I have to fill the radiator every time I...

I'm NOT a mechanic.. But.. Check this by starting engine with radiator cap removed, and look for flow.
Do you see a lot of bubbles? Esp when engine is still cool.. And bubbles are full of vapor? My guess is head gasket leak.. Blowing exhaust into the coolant. Gas in coolant preventing proper flow, and overheating the coolant, and simultaneously over pressurizing cooling system, causing blow out.

Are you seeing any steamy exhaust. ? Try pulling plugs and looking for extra clean one.
Good luck..

Head gasket

It's time to do a head gasket job the 22Re's blow the head gasket at about 140,000 so your son did you a favor, remove the head have it machined and valeves done replace the head gasket the the tork to yeild head bolts that HAVE to be replaced spend about $200.00 and it will last another 150,000 miles the rings and bottom end are solid on them but the head goes bad between #1 and #2 cylinders.also when you pull the head undue the exhast pipe and dump out the antifreeze in the catalitic conveter and you don't want that it will ruin it. and you can fix the broken exhaust pipe at the same time down by the L on the side of the tranny.

Water in oil

I have yet to see a cracked head on a 22R,so more than likely a blown head gasket,unless you overheated and warped the head and worst case a hole between the cylinder wall and water jacket(this is pretty rare).The only way to tell short of using some expensive tools or taking to your local shop is to pull the head and inspect the gasket for leakage wich is generally fairly obvious(separation of the gasket layers,oil and water between water and oil passages)and checking the head deck for warpage.If there is obvious leakage in the gasket you're looking at a top end gasket set if the head is slightly warped you can get away with a thick graphite head gasket,I personally use these as they are very forgiving on slightly warped and scratched head decks and inepensive also,but a severly warped head will require milling at a machine shop or replacement.

Need to change engines

If you have a 22r carbed then all 22r carbed engines from 1981-1995 will interchange. You may need to use sensor out of your old engine however. The 20r,22r,22re,22ret all have the same mounts and tranny bolt patterns. how ever there are lot of differences. you can swap from a 22r to a 22re but you must also swap the entire vehical wiring harness to do it right. if you have a 3.0L i would keep the same engine. some people have swap to the tacoma 3.6L but that is a expensive swap not exsactly bolt on so to say. If you have a 22re then stay with the 1986-1987 22re because the newer 22re use different computers, electronics ,sensors and more.. Same story with the 22ret. I hoped this helped.
