replaced my Valve stem seals last week, took about 1 1/2 days of labor....

Plugs were fouled, used to add 1/2 quart oil every time I added gas to the car, in the last 3 fillups I added "0" oil, yippee, my mile even increased... Thanks for all the great information from this web site...:pepper:

I only changed the Intake VSS like mentioned in previous posts, worked for me.

I am trying to do a valve job on a 94 Tercel with a 3e-e engine and can not break the crankshaft pulley bolt loose. Is it left hand or right hand thread?

Thanks,

first off get a crescent wrench and a buddy.
then place the crescent wrench in the ceter of the cam on a ruff spot not the shiny spots. Then turn your 19 mm socket on the crank pulley nut to the left and it shall come loose.

bigbassfrank:

what readings did you get when you did your compression tests?

It surprises me that I am still driving the same car 7 years after I changed the VSS --- My car still burns no oil.

For those of you who may be interested, I have posted a photo of the valve compressor I made in the original post.

I am stilleeping the car!!!!


Well, after 7 years since I changed the VSS of my Tercel, I still have the car and still drive it daily to work during the winter seasons, In summer times I drive my 5 speed manual Lexus IS300.

The Car is counting on to 270,000km now and do not burn any oil at all. This week I just passed my emission test. I am going to keep it as long as it runs.

As far as I can see, the car still in very good mechanical condition with no rusts. I am very impressed with the clutch ---- after close to 270,000km mostly city driving, I still have the original clutch (with no signs of slipping) which is amazing! I only hope my Lexus can be as good as this!

For an 91` Tercel, I can not ask more than it has given me.....

My wifes 1996 needs this done. I wish I had done it when I had the head off....hindsight.....

I just thought it was the headgasket. Oh well. It's not too terribly bad to take the head back off if that's what it takes. Once you've done it you know all the tricks and procedures...makes it MUCH faster the 2nd time around.

Ok...there is a MUCH MUCH MUCH easier way to remove and install the valve keepers.

Go to ebay and do a search on this....

VALVE / VALVE SPRING TOOL FOR CHINESE SCOOTER QMB139 50cc AND 150cc GY6 MOTORS

BU-LEIVE ME...get this...it's $8.00 and it will make removing the keepers, retainer and springs a BREEZE. The kit comes with two tools. One is for removeing the keepers and the other for removing. To remove. just place the removal tool over the keepers and tap with a hammer. The keepers just pop right out. To install...place the keepers in the retainer disc then place the retainer on the valve spring. Push down with your hand until you feel the keepers lock back in place. DONE!
