Blue smoke at low rpms on a 22re toyota

Blue smoke indicates burning oil in the cylinders. Could be worn piston rings, worn valve guides, or bad valve stem seals. An engine compression test may help find it, but a cylinder leak-down test is a more precise way to find where compression is being lost. If compression is good, you just may need to replace the old rubber valve stem seals. A shop could do it without having to remove the cylinder head, using an air compressor hooked up into each cylinder while the valve train is being worked on. The air is used to keep the valves from falling into the cylinder while the seals are replaced. About a 4 hour labor cost, so expensive, but a lot less than a cylinder head removal.

There is engine oil in the spark plug well of No1 cylinder (the well is about 10-12cm long and the oil is almost up to the top of the spark plug). I'm guessing there is a seal or seals between the cylnder...

Valve cover gasket , this is a common problem and its not the cylinder head it is held in by 6 bolts and is common to leak in to sparkplug area and causes misfire, your spark plugs wires are considered oil soak and you might as well get those replaced,

I have oil in my anitfreeze what does that mean? how much does it cost to fix it? Is it worth fixing?

It means you have a blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder head. Its allowing the oil to mix with the water in the cooling system. You will have to remove the belts and accessory's in front of the timing cover, remove crank pulley, remove the timing cover and then timing belt. Remove all connectors, hoses and lines to the intake and cylinder head (Make sure to mark the hoses and connectors to there location for reinstall), remove the intake manifold if it makes it easier to remove cylinder head, if not leave it on and remove the valve cover, Remove the bolts to the cylinder head and pull it off with the intake manifold attached. You should see the gasket if it is not stuck to the bottom of the head. Installation is reverse. Have a Haynes Manual so you can have your torques and timing routing. Is it worth it, cost to replace head gasket verses another car, you have to make the call. I think so because I like no car payment and I know whats in my car. Get a salvaged cylinder head and new head gasket set, Total cost if you do the work yourself and get a good deal on cylinder head, 300 to 400 dollars. Shop cost 700 to 1500 dollars. Just a Ball Park

Hi i have 98 camry it blow white smoke not only on 1st start, but only sometimes.driving up hill and it is rattling and blow white smoke and the car have not enough power.pls any help suuggestion is very...

Sounds to me like the head gasket is blown, but there may be sealant in the system which is making it intermittently leak antifreeze into the cylinders.

A bad cylinder head gasket will also cause a compromise in compression, which will cause a lack of power.

Time to overhaul or replace the engine's head gasket, or replace the engine with one that doesn't have a blown head gasket.

Good luck on this repair.

How to remove valve cover to replace valve cover gasket

Number 8 cylinder has 65 psi in it and the rest

put a few drops of oil in the cylinder and check again

If the compression comes up then you have a cylinder issue, Time for a new motor.

If the compression stays the same then its a valve issue.

To have the heads done providing no parts are replaced cost about 200 a head (400)

The labor alone could cost 1000 bucks or more if a shop does this for you

CYLINDER HEAD REMOVAL FOR MB E320 1995 . do i need to take out the timing chain guard before takign out the cylinder head i need help pls thank you

no-just make sure you remove the pin that secures the inner guide rail. The banana rail isn't secured on the head. If the inner guide rail breaks then you will have to remove the bottom front cover to replace it so be careful.

Where is the head gaskets

This is not a good question to ask.....I take it that you must not be too mechanically offense. is this a v6? A head gasket is between the head(s) and the block. If a head gasket is bad (blown), then it is a very major job to replace. And hoping that your head is not cracked, which is sometimes possible. It is like tearing the engine apart, except for the crank and pistons (bottom engine) head gasket is on the top half of the engine. I would estimate that this job would cost you over $1000. without cost of parts. ???

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.
