Clutch disc and pressure plate. The bolts should be tightened in 2 or 3 steps, gradually and evenly. Final bolt torque is 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm).

How do I replace the spark plugs?

This requires a certain amount of mechanical skills and knowledge of how to use a torque wrench properly. To begin the process know that the spark plugs are recessed deep in the valve cover. Follow the high tension 8mm wires from their individual coil-paks directly to the respective plug and carefully remove. Now using a 5/ 8" deep well plug socket and an 8-10 extension carefully remove the plugs. Install new plugs (spec per mfg.) I like the iridium then platinum, but check to ensure gap is correct before installing the new plugs. Now take plug and insert into plug socket then carefully lower into recess until you contact threads lightly. Rotate plug clockwise with very little pressure keeping plug socket 90 degrees until you get proper thread engagement. Continue installation of each plug then torque to spec, and reinstall all wires.

I need to replace the clutch in my 1998 Toyota Corolla, Should I pay for someone to do this or is it easier to do it myself. How would I change this out myself?

Pay someone. This is a difficult job that should take a trained technician in a well equipped shop 5-6 hours to complete. That does not include having the flywheel resurfaced. Unless you are very organized, have adequate tools, torque specs, knowledge of what parts to replace and inspect while in there, and what not to destroy when removing the transmission and what to replace when putting it back together, you might get in over your head rather quickly. I am not out to doubt anyone's ability but this is not a as simple as an oil change or a brake job that even a novice can perform in a driveway unless you are 100% positive you are up to the task of removing the transmission, properly replacing the clutch and reinstalling the transmission I advise you not to open that can of worms until you are better trained. There are a ton of snags that you can and will run into during this job and you will need to know what to do. You can't get everything from a manual or how-to book.
Good luck.

How to choose the best clutch kit

you need to match your new clutch to the old one the only concern you should have is the torque value it should always be the same or exceed the the factory specs but if you exceed the torque it can be no more than 15% greater than factory specs.also remember to change the input shaft bearing/bushing in the crank

Torque for head bolts for 1984 Toyota Corolla

head bolt toque specs are 40-47 ft-lbs

Mar 22, 2009 | 1984 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Torquing head

The 98 Corolla has a "torque-to-distance" spec.

First, torque all 10 bolts to 36 ft lbs (49 NM or 500kgf-cm), in a clockwise fashion, starting with the 2 center bolts.

Second, mark the bolts with a paint mark, and then torque each of the 10 bolts an additional 90 degrees.

Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.

1994 Toyota Corolla - Valve COver Gasket Replacement

You need an aftermarket serviice manual from Haynes or Chilton. They will have that kind of info.
I know of no car (I don't know them all) where that is needed and depending on the cover material (sheet steel or cast), could lead to warping and new leaks. I always use a thin film of silicone whether it is specified or not and there are torque specs for ALL valve covers I have ever seen.
