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.

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

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

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.
