Question about 1998 Toyota Celica
I have recently change my head gasket and all 16 valve stem seals. After refitting the head and experiencing a smoking engine, I have endevoured to find a solution. I have investigated some of the old valve stem seals removed and have compared them with new ones. I have found that there are some differences in the hole diameters. The original hole diameters measure 5mm were as the new measure 5.8mm. Also, Toyota used to supply two different seals, a green top for the exhaust and a brown top, but now supply just one, suggesting that there is very little difference?
Can anybody help here?
I am trying to solve a problem and with Toyota wanting £9.38 each, to commit to spending £150.08 on these seals is a little scary.
When does it smoke? All of the time, or just when you start it? If it smokes all of the time, consider piston rings. If you have lots of smoke when first starting only, valve seals and possibly worn valve guides are the culprit.
