I was just wondering "How tough can this be?" So -I went out to the mini Blazer (also an 84) and gad-zooks- the air injectors , power steering, Most of the unmarked emissions lines and a fist full of wires.

So get out your camera and note pad, sticky notes and magic marker. Get an 8139 Chilton book and have at it.

1988 f250how to change valve cover gaskets 351 windsor

valve cover gaskets on motors were mostly cork material and never seemed to fit properly. There were small sections that fitted into slots on the edges of the cover to hold them in place but the gasket always seemed to miss parts and leaked.. The secret was to immerse the gasket in water for about 4 hours and the cork swelled up and was more pliable and fitted correctly. Next secret is to use contact cement on the rocker cover and gasket and when touch tacky fit the gasket to the cover. place the studs in the holds to align the gasket while the glue dries and bonds. When ready, fit the covers with a coating of LOCKTITE blue gasket sealer and the gasket will act as a new one from the factory.

I changed my Tranmission fluid on my 1984 Chevy c10 and gasket,filter now I'm trying to figure how many Qts of transmission fluid do I put back in.

It depends on which transmission you have in the truck but between 3.5 litres and 4.7 litres. Pick up 4 or 5 litres, add 3 and check the fluid level. Go from there. Before you check the level run the truck through all the gears slowly down to 1 and back to Park. Leave it in each gear a few seconds. Top it up and repeat until it's full. Hope this helps.

Oil leaking around head gasket

I would assume that the leak is the valve cover gasket. The head gasket has no oil around it only combustion gases and coolant. This is were I would look first, however it could be possible for there to be oil coming from the head its self and that could be a crack in the head near the valves.

Valve train ticking noise 1997 cadillac catera

The cats use hydraulic lifters. Just before your next oil change, or when you are down about a litre of oil, put a litre of transmission fluid (Dextron II) into the engine and drive it about 2to 300 miles and then change the oil and filter. You should hear the valve train noise dissappear within the 1st 20 or 30 miles.

Do not overfill!!!!!

This is assuming you have a plugged hydraulic lifter(s). If you have a worn cam or worn valve train, you need to remove the heads (both) and send them to a machine shop that does heads and head gaskets, valve cover gaskets as well as any worn cams. valves etc....

Car really has to be worth it. At this point, if you love Cateras (I have 2 2001's), I would sell it the way it is and get a 00' or an 01'.

The 97' and 98's are not worth the trouble.......

I have a 1997 chev cavalier with a leaky valve pan that needs replacement can you tell me the torque specs for the valve cover please 2.2 litre

Valve covers don't need to be very tight. A torque wrench isn't necessary as all they do is contain the oil. If it is leaking you will likely need to replace the valve cover gasket. Just tighten it with a small ratchet and socket until it's snug. Over tightening will compress the gasket and cause it to leak. If you feel you need to use a torque wrench, i would guess about 10 or 15 lbs.

1984 F150 302 Had oil pan gasket and both valve cover gaskets

you have several points to check!
the dip stick tube has a "O" ring seal at the bottom where it fits to tranny.
a reverse switch on tranny & the shifters selector shaft has a seal that may be leaking !
there are the cooler pipes from cooler to tranny [in & out] plus pump seal to the torque converter [leaks out between engine & tranny bellhousing] & then there are the drive shaft or shafts seals
so wipe it all clean & park it in a diffrent clean spot!
some will only leak when its runnung due to tranny,s internal pressure!
