Can Any One tell Me About The Probability Of Anti Freeze Getting Into Oil From Worn Timing Chain Housing? I Have An 84 Celica GTS Liftback In Very Good Condition and Have Just Had Head Checked And Gasket Replaced Twice But Still Taking Small amount Of Anti Freeze In Oil. NAPA Shop Said That There Is A Bulletin Out On This But I Can't Find On Internet. The Car Has 208000 Miles and Still Runs Otherwise Like a Top!

Timing chain eating away the cover and the pump is not new to vintage Celicas. Don't remember where I read, deffo it was a vintage Celica related site, where there was a complete explanation on why this happened and how to avoid it but it's quite normal on those cars.

the easy way to determine is take off the valve cover and use a radiator pressure tester to pump up some pressure, loo down to the left side behind the timing chain for a mist of water to be spraying.
this is a common 20r 22r 22re 22rte problem
