How To Replace CV Boots - EricTheCarGuy
This one is a request from more than one person so I'm happy to bring it to
you. As I said in the video I personally don't see much point of replacing
just the CV boots anymore as it just makes more sense to replace the axle,
that's just how I feel however. If you do want to replace the boots I hope
this video will help.

Valve Cover Gasket Replacement Camry V6
Step by step procedure on replacing the front and rear valve cover gaskets
in a Toyota Camry with the 1MZ-FE 3.0L V6 engine.
Procedure is the same for V6 Toyota Camry, Avalon, Solara, Sienna,
Highlander, Lexus RX300 and ES300.
Also covered in this video: Spark plug wire and ignition coil replacement,
PCV valve and grommet replacement, throttle body cleaning and gasket
replacement, EGR replacement, intake plenum removal, spark plug tube seal
replacement, air filter replacement, coolant system drain.
The intake plenum must be removed to access the rear valve cover.
Good idea to replace spark plugs, spark plug wires, PCV valve and grommet
and EGR/ Throttle body / Intake plenum gasket while your at it.
The job isn't difficult, but its time consuming. Only basic hand-held tools
Use a torque wrench to tighten valve cover bolts.
Use washers to build up the height of crushed washers.
Use Permatex RTV on all sharp or uneven surfaces on the valve cover.
Refill cooling system with Toyota Long Life coolant and mix 50/50 ratio.
Clean the idle air control valve (IACV), throttle body, intake plenum and
EGR before re-assembling.
Have a friend hold up the rear wiring harness when removing or installing
the rear valve cover or tie it to the wipers.
Label all electrical and vacuum connections.
Freeze spark plug tube seals and use a heat gun to warm the valve cover
before pressing the seal in.
2.2 4 cylinder Toyota Camry oil pump seal
A short video to show the oil pump on a 1998 Camry and where that mystery
lower oil leak you have is coming from. I strongly suggest you do this at
the same time you do the timing belt since it has to come off anyway, The
oil pump shaft seal was replaced at the same time, just lock the gear in a
vice with a couple layers of rag to protect it, then remove the 12mm nut,
remove the sprocket, r&r seal, lube it, put the nut back on with some
locktite, snug down the nut.
How to Remove Stubborn Toyota 20R - 22R - 22RE Crankshaft Pulley Bolt 1979 - 1995
A long (but detailed) video on the tips and tricks I've learned over the
years on how to remove stubborn crankshaft pulley bolts on Toyota 22R
series engines. (22R 22RE 22RET)
By far, the best way would be to have the SST (shop specific tool) that
Toyota recommends, but not many folks (me included) has one of those in
their garage. This is a video of some of the tips and tricks that I've
learned over the years on getting this sometimes EXTREMELY stubborn bolt to
The most common reason that you need to be able to get this bolt out is so
that you can access the front main seal on the front end of the crankshaft.
Most older Toyotas develope an oil leak through the seal. Oil works past
the worn-out seal and then gets flung around the front of the engine and
engine bay by the crankshaft pulleys. It's really a pretty easy fix for a
very messy problem...if you can get the crankshaft pulley bolt off in order
to access the seal.
