My daughter's fiance had some oil seepage from the valve cover gasket on his 92 or 93 Camry wagon. I looked up the torque for the spark plug tube nuts (I have the pdf format factory manuals for the Gen 3 and Gen 4 Camry). These are both 5SFE engines, but the torque that is specified for the Gen 4 (like my wife has) is 33ft/lb, and the specified torque for the Gen 3 is only 17ft/lb. I torqued his to 17ft/lb, but there is still seepage from the valve cover. Does anyone know why the difference (or if there should be a difference)?
