  1. Cylinder head removal?

    89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    I did not know about chain eating into side. And my mechanic never told me. I found out through the internet. I checked and the chain was eating through side after inspection.I think the guides broke around 130k. I remember an explosion and this horrible noise and smoke. The car stalled and had...
  2. Maintenance Questions

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    I switched our 1st gen Avys to high mileage synthetic about 6 months ago. Keeping a close eye on things but so far no issues.
  3. Cylinder head removal?

    89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    That Ishino Stone gasket set looks like the ticket. I already have the Ishino stone valve cover gasket and plug seals. Won't hurt to have an extra pair!
  4. Cylinder head removal?

    89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    Great info. Thank you guys. I wish I could take this to a machine shop but I am already sinking 600 for this job and another 500 for suspension and 230 on new gas tank and fuel pump. I am thinking good ole truck might last me another 10 years after this. But if you guys think it is a mistake to...
  5. Cylinder head removal?

    89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    Thank you 71 Corolla. I will take your advice. I do not want the HG to blow later. The whole point of changing the chain is because it is cutting into the metal as there are no guides left. I will follow the FSM exactly and will make sure head and block are true and clean. I will use new head...
  6. Cylinder head removal?

    89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    I have a 1994 2wd mt 2.4l with 250k miles on it. I am doing a timing chain replacement including water pump, oil pump, and hd chain guides. The FSM says to remove cylinder head. I know it is not necessary. But I am wondering if I should go ahead and replace head gasket and valve stem seals while...
  7. Replacing Filler Neck Pipe

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    From what I can tell that spectra premium is the direct replacement part number. It is for cars manufactured up up to 8/98.
  8. Windshield Wiper Linkage, How...

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    You remove the dix linkage bokts then you remove the linkage from the motor through the service hole. Then you take out linkage through the hole and if you need to remove the motor you do that last.
  9. Climate control issue.

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    No. But I could. The car is still all tore up. My spouse has it. I am waiting for an FSM and a EWD so I can fix an AC issue. I just have to wait for the chance to get at the car.
  10. Climate control issue.

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    Lol In my case I was lying facing up across the front seats with my face close to the accelerator pedal looking up and sideways towards the center of dash!
  11. Climate control issue.

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    I can see it in my car. I have the lower panel on drivers side off and the metal panel under it off also. It is not that hard to find. Once you take those panels off, you can see the heater core behind the controls. Follow the two metal hoses from the heater core as they go up. When they make a...
  12. Security system

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    Avalon start alarm shutdown override To start the Avalon when alarm shuts off the car. Take key out. Disconnect negative at batt. Put key to on, not start or accept. Leave key in and never back off to off. Put neg cable back on. Start car from on position where it should have been all this time.
  13. Security system

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    Just hang in there A lot of these cars were sold with aftermarket alarm systrms that were part of special packages ordered by dealers and whst not. I have the same thing happen to both my Avys. A lot of the time it happens because you do somethibg wrong like letting the battery discharge or...
  14. Intermittent drop to 0 on speedo. Speed Sensor?

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    This resonator info might be what I needed! I have a 1995 avalon that had this exact same issue with the speedometer for a while until it went out completely. Sensors are good. Scan tool registers speed correctly and odometer updates correctly. Cruise control works. I still do not understand...
  15. AC woes. Help very much appreciated.

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    Thank you SFCamry. I was not aware of TIS! I have the FSM for my 95 Avy but I think I need exact info for this. You would not happen to know ehat the AC amplifier does, would you? I cannot find info on it.
  16. AC woes. Help very much appreciated.

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    So the AC on the 99 Avy stopped working. The switches in the AC upper control module have no lights. And nothing happens when the controls on the lower panel are turned. No air comes out. Dead. It appears blower was making noise before it keeled over. I suspected a blown fuse or burnt AC...

  19. Oversized oil filter

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    Yes I feel guilty because I was told the dealership was more reliable than I am. So I said ok , let Toyota do it. I am the one that fixes and maintains the cars and I should have checked it but I had felt offended that I could not be trusted. I put four quarts of oil in that car when I saw it...
  20. 95 - constant ignition chime / no horn

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    I also have a 95. To fix the horn, I got another steering wheel from the junkyard and swapped mine out. Worked like a charm plus the steering wheel looks like new.
