Remove the cam and double check the journals. If the truck had gotten hot enough, it could've scarred the journals. Make sure the journals are nice and smooth. If they're not, it will cause a bind on the camshaft causing it to "grab". I just went through this on a Lincoln Navigator.

Engine tapping

There is a blockage in the lubrication line to the top end. If you have recently replaced the head gasket there may not be a hole for the oil in the gasket Check that there are no missing plugs in the cam shaft and rockers. Other problems may include a massive oil leak ( chain or belt hydraulic adjuster ) that is leaving little pressure to get to the top

Need to replace the seal at the differential

There are several seals for the differential. The pinion seal is towards the driveshaft. The rear cover is on the back of the differential.

The rear cover seal is a gasket and can be replaced by removing the rear cover and scraping off the old gasket. Some mechanics make their own gasket out of a liberal application of atv gasket compound. Other mechanics use a stamped gasket and may apply a small amount of cement to one side of the gasket to hold it to the cover.

The cover is bolted on by Torx head fittings.

The pinion seal is another matter. The driveshaft needs to come off. The flange needs to come away from the differential and the seal rides the shaft going into the differential. Some housings require a removal tool.

With either seal, you need to determine the type of differential you have. Limited -slip requires an additive to work in the standard lube. Some require only synthetic gear lube as well as the additive.

A cover gasket is not very hard to replace. The pinion seal can be more difficult. Price the repair.

Do not reuse the differential fluid.

The cam shaft journals are not receiving oil on my 1983 suzuki samurai 1.3 after there was a head job done, do you know what might be the reason?

Not without taking the head back off. Could be a problem with the head gasket blocking one of the oil passages, or foreign matter in the passage, or in the oil holes in the head for the cam bearings.

Car with blown head gasket more that 120,000 miles

Quite possibly the motor will be OK after replacement of one or both head gaskets. This can be done with the engine still in the car. The definitive tests for whether this is needed are a compression test (shows head gasket leaks) and a radiator leak-down test (shows water jacket coolant leaks).
If it turns out the job is required it is a good idea to have the timing belt and water pump replaced also, and the crankshaft nose and camshaft oil seals. The cylinder head faces and mating block faces must be carefully checked for flatness.
Although more expensive it is advisable to specify genuine Toyota seals and gaskets as the cheaper non-genuine ones do not last on this engine.
The V6 has several characteristic oil leaks which develop, and that may not be related to the head gasket problem. It will leak from
- rear bank cam cover gasket, onto the exhaust- distributor shaft o-ring seal- oil filter bracket o-ring seal (if present)
These can be replaced at the same time.
The alternative is to have a 2nd hand motor fitted, which is always an unknown, but if you can get a warranty that will be better.
Get several quotes for each alternative, and try to gauge the reputation of the mechanics

Oil pump replacement, location of it, nomenclature

Remove oil pan and pump is bolted to back main bearing cap. But this is most likely not the problem. This engine is known for cam bearings spinning out of the block and cam shaft breaking inbetween #3 and 4 cam journals, oil pump is driven off the end of camshaft, engine runs very rough and makes all kinds of noise when this happens, cure is a new engine. to check for broken cam shaft removed front valve cover, have some one start or crank the engine, the 2 rocker arms on the drivers side will not move at all, most likely there will be silver metal dust laying in the low spots of the head where oil puddles up.

My toyota vienta 3VZ-FE 1996 - oil leak onto exhaust


That engine will leak oil from

- cam cover gaskets (rear one drips on the exhaust)
- camshaft end seals
- distributor shaft o-ring (appears on top of transaxle housing)
- oil filter bracket to block o-ring seal (drips on front bank exhaust)
- crankshaft nose oil seal (have done with timing belt change)
- rear main seal (expensive, leave it be)

Where do i find the camshaft position sensor A on a 1995 plymouth neon

Why are you looking for a cam sensor (cmp). You can test the sensor for any and all diagnostics up above in the harness for the 5v reference signal that allows it to operate properly. You can also check the pulse/signal in the harness as well.

It's either on the front of the head or the back, however, your model, depending on the engine, may have a camshaft synchronizer, in whch case it would appear to take the place of where a distributor would have been. I think the cam sensors on the chryslers are on the front and the crank (ckp) sensor (engine speed sensor according to Chrysler) is in the back down low by the rear of the engine.

What's the problem you're trying to solve? A crank, no start? Surging?
