Need to remove valve cover on 2000 Camry Toyota


For the four cylinder engine:

  1. Remove and label all electrical wiring, connectors and vacuum hoses necessary to gain removal clearance.
  2. Remove the spark plug wires. Disconnect the PCV hose.
  3. Remove the four nuts and grommets located on top of the cylinder head cover.
  1. Remove the cylinder head cover and the cover gasket from the cylinder head.
  2. Discard the gasket and replace with a new one.
To install:
  1. With a wire brush or gasket scraper, remove all the old gasket material from the cylinder head and the cylinder head cover gasket surfaces.
  2. When the cylinder head surfaces are free and clean, apply beads of sealant to the cylinder head in the locations shown in the accompanying illustrations.
  3. Install the new cylinder head gasket in the cover. Make sure that the gasket seats evenly.
  4. Place the cylinder head cover with the gasket onto the cylinder head.
  5. Install the four grommets and nuts. Uniformly tighten the nuts in several passes to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm).
  6. Connect the PCV hose. Connect all removed vacuum hoses, connectors and electrical wiring. Connect the negative battery cable.
  7. Start the engine and inspect for oil leaks.
  8. Repair any leaks as necessary.
For the V-6 (3.0L) engine:
  1. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
  2. Disconnect the radiator inlet hose.

  11. Clean the mating area of the valve cover and cylinder heads well. If necessary, scrape any left gasket from either surface.
  12. Apply seal packing to the cylinder heads and place new gaskets into position.
  13. Attach the valve covers. Uniformly tighten the bolts in several passes to 69 inch lbs. (8 Nm).
  14. Install the spark plugs in their proper locations, then place the ignition coils into place and secure.

Whats the proper order and torque specs for a 99 32v northstar head?


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION NOTE: The manufacturer recommends that the entire powertrain be removed from the vehicle before removing the cylinder heads.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  4. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Powertrain assembly
    • Intake manifold
    • Cam covers
    • Harmonic balancer
    • Timing chain front cover
    • Oil pump
    WARNING
    Align all timing marks before performing the next step.
    • Chain tensioner from the timing chain

    • Timing chain guides, access for the retaining screws is through the plugs at the front of the cylinder head
    • Water crossover
    • Exhaust manifold
    • Cylinder head bolts by reversing the torque sequence
    • Cylinder head and discard the gasket
    WARNING
    With the camshafts remaining in the cylinder head some valves will be open at all times. Do not rest the cylinder head on a flat service with the cylinder face down, or valve damage will result. NOTE: Clean all gasket mating surfaces. Clean the head bolt holes in the crankcase. WARNING
    Be careful when cleaning aluminum gasket surfaces to prevent damage to the sealing surfaces.
  5. Check the cylinder head for warpage; it must be less than 0.002 in. (0.05mm). If the cylinder head was resurfaced, the dimension between the combustion chamber gauge pad and the deck surface must be at least 10.5mm. To install: NOTE: Refer to Section 1 of this manual for the cylinder head torque sequence illustration. The illustration is located after the Torque Specification Chart.
  6. Install or connect the following:
    • New cylinder head gasket
    • Cylinder head, lubricate the bolts with engine oil
  7. Torque the M11 bolts, in sequence, as follows:
    1. Step 1: 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).
    2. Step 2: Turn an additional 60 degrees.
    3. Step 3: Turn an additional 60 degrees (total 180 degrees).
  8. Torque the M6 bolts to 106 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
  9. Set the camshaft timing
  10. Camshaft guide bolt access hole plugs in the cylinder heads. The plugs should be seated and snug

After replacing valve cover gasket with dry fel-pro gasket,


Your new gasket has tabs that make it easy to set in place; the tabs hold the position properly on the cylinder head. The gasket also has the rubber coating to establish a tight seal between the cylinder head and the the valve cover, even if there is slight damage or warping. Proper torque for the valve cover bolts is between 50-100 in-lbs., which is about 8 ft-lbs for a maximum.

If you have the gasket properly set, and proper torque on the valve cover bolts, you should not leak.

If you still experience a leak after double checking the gasket and the bolt torque, I would replace the valve cover itself. You will find several at most any salvage yard, and probablly will cost you $10.00 or less for a used valve cover.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
