Hi, all,

Does anyone have experience to DIY replace the valve seal?
Any special tools do I need?
How long for the first time?


Thanks.

I believe you'll need to remove the cylinder head to do that. Don't think you can remove the spring and seal without the valve falling into the cylinder :eek:
That means you'll need lots of work and a Toyota Repair manual.
You'll need to change head gasket once you lift the head.
I'll say try to get a used head, get a shop to P&P it, clean it up with new seal and shims. Swap the ported one in and sell the old one.
You may want to do a full rebuild also.
