  1. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I just received a rebuilt engine for my 2001 Toyota Camry CE 2.2L. Threw it in and used all new gaskets for water pump, intake manifold, head, etc. I go to start it up and it starts smoking really bad, idles rough, stalls and throws misfire codes. So I take it back apart just to see that there...
  2. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hello everyone, I have a 1992 Camry that has the automatic V6 3vz-fe. This car has been a pain but she is worth it. I originally purchased her with a blown head gasket. Replaced the head gasket and many other random gaskets throughout the process. She has a new timing kit and belt on...

    I have a complete 1991 Supra that I am parting out. Between swapping a 7MGTE and a 7MGE and W58 and automatic transmissions between two cars, I have a complete car leftover. The 7MGE engine and the automatic transmission, both of which were running fine when I started the transfer are now...
  4. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    I have a 1994 4AFE Corolla. There's a coolant leak where the underside of the intake manifold meets the cylinder head. I guess it's a problem with the head gasket, but there isn't water in the oil, and the car doesn't seem to be burning oil. Do you think it's the head gasket, or is it...
  5. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hi everyone, I'm new here, just getting into DIY car repair. My '98 4cyl LE just came back from a diagnostic with leak alerts around the valve cover and cylinder head. A good buddy has a little shop with all the tools we'd need, and we're looking at making it a summer project. Would it make...
  6. 89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    I have read manuals, posts and watched videos on replacing timing chains on the 22RE's. Many say to remove the cylinder head and others say it can be done with it in place. I did not see nor read anything about having the head checked or resurfaced in any of the manuals/posts or videos? ...I...
  7. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    1997 Toyota Corolla CE 4A-FE 1.6L 430k miles I'm replacing my head gasket. The head is off my engine and the block is full of hardened Steel Seal that needs to be removed before I can proceed. (I have a few pictures.) I removed the drain plug; can I use a water hose to flush out the sludge...
  8. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    1997 Toyota Corolla 1.6l 4A-FE CE Sedan with 480430 miles. My engine has been overheating, and blowing coolant out the radiator when the cap is off. I replaced the radiator, and one of the fans, but it didn't help. I pulled off the water pump, and the impeller looked fine, even though the water...
  9. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    1996 5S-FE 2.2. My #3 plug broke during removal. The ceramic came out with the plug, only the thread remains. Repeat..only the thread remains. I have tried "easy-out" screw bits and there is nothing "easy" about it. It just refuses to come out. I am using a breaker bar with it and still, it...
  10. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Car starts and runs, but pours coolant out of the exhaust without any smoke. Gets worse the higher the revs are. Know for sure the radiator is bad, anything it could be other than a blown head gasket? Once again, the only thing we know for sure is that the radiator is bad.

    Buy yourself a service manual, it will have much more detailed (and correct) info than anything me or others could post here.
  12. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I warped my cylinder head in the first leg of a cross country road trip. I'm not from around here, so I had to get a diagnosis from a random mechanic. He confirmed the head is either warped or cracked. I called around town and the labor quotes are outrageous! The estimated time required for...
  13. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I've got a 2000 Toyota Camry LE, with a 2.2L I4 DOHC engine. It's got about 125k miles on it and has blown 2 headgaskets. The car was owned by my uncle before me and hasn't blown them due to overheating. We believe it was due to a warped cylinder head. My question is, would it be smarter to...
  14. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hey guys, I have a 95 Camry LE with the 5S-FE engine (auto). I'm 75% sure my head gasket is leaking coolant, so I'm trying to find out what all needs to be done to remove the head. Just FYI, there are zero visible drips/leaks, radiator is brand new, rad hoses are brand new, and this is my...

    1989 Camry V6, 103k miles I live in NH, my friend lives in Round Hill, VA. He has the Camry which he gave to me. It was overheating and his mom had bought a new one and gave him the old one. He replaced the thermostat and then a mechanic said it was some tube (?) which was replaced. He...
  16. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    2009 Corolla S 5 speed. Well had a slight over rev, engine died. Well need less to say I know the 1.8 has floating rockers. But the lifter popped out on the exhaust side and wedge into the cam and cracked the head around the lifter. Already have all the parts to fix this. However alldata says I...

    Hey All, Thanks in advance for all of your help!! I couldn't have gotten as far as I have without reading all of the advice that you have given throughout TN! I am in the middle of replacing the head gasket on the 22RE of my 1992 Toyota Pickup with 4 wheel drive, manual transmission, w/...
  19. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    I own a 2002 Corolla with a 1zz-fe engine that burns a quart of oil every 500 miles. It doesn't smoke probably because the catlytic converter is new, nor does it leak....no oil on my garage floor. I'm convinced the rings are stuck due to excessive varnish build up. I've tried so-called...
  20. Previa Forum
    Not too long ago I was boasting about rebuilding my Previa engine despite being a amateur. Well, at the risk of embarrassing myself, I am back to give a small, perhaps obvious in retrospect, heads up. 2tz-fe and 2tz-fze (s/c) engines have different cylinder heads that look the same, bolt on the...
