  1. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    So ive heard some say on here that if/when you swap the valve cover gasket on this car you should also check the valve clearances. I have very little understanding of this, but I do know how an engine head functions so I bet I could figure it out, but any tips on what I need to do or what I...

    Hey guys.. Need some guidance here. 1990 Geo Prizm/Corolla 5spd 248,xxx miles. It's always had a bit of a weak 3rd cylinder for some reason, checked all the ignition stuff, changed some things out, and it's been pretty smooth since, although I'd have to feather the gas sometimes at a stop. I...

  7. 89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    When I adjusted my valve lash I didn't find tdc, I don't turn the motor "x" degrees. I remove the valve cover and adjusted the valves that are on the back side of the cam lobe. I bump the engine with the starter slightly and adjust other valves. Repeat until I got them all. Hope this makes...
