check the head as well - make it's not warped before you change the gasket -

sorry to hear Keith -

I'm driving my '94 Toyota Pickup, which I've had since '97 when I bought it with 15k miles on it for $4200. Understand that it was a repo, had been wrecked, had a barely-matched fender/hood on it, the stereo had been torn out, no A/C, no power steering, vinyl bench and floor. It was about as base as you could get.

Now it has 140k miles, and I added A/C years ago.

Gonna have the head gasket replaced, the heads checked/milled. Also gonna have the timing belt replaced since it's way overdue. Even gonna put a new water pump on while he's in there, pre-emptively. Time will tell what shape the head is in, or if there is any other noticeable damage due to running with watery oil. But it's in the hands of a good Toyota mechanic that DRM knows, so I'm feeling good about the work.

Yeah, I've had a bit. But then I'm managing four vehicles for the family, and they are a '94, '95, '98 and '01. Also a back-up minivan that we've had since '95 that we run occasionally for youth group trips. They're all paid for, all run most of the time, and all fairly dependable. So the maintenance is my dues for not having a bunch of car payments. \:\)

actually the 22r motor has a timing chain and not a belt

i have seen them last over 300000 miles

however if i was having to pull the head I would change it and the guides just because

I bet a dollar to a donut its not the headgasket! 22re is bad about the timing chain guides wearing, and when they go the chain then rubs on the timing cover. This cover has coolant passages and it rubs a hole directly to the coolant passage. Check your timing cover for chain rubbing before pulling the head. If it has rubbed inspect it very closely and I'll bet you find the problem.

Good info there^^^^^^^ Mine was so thin from the chain rubbing that I easily pushed a screw driver through the cover. it wasn't leaking yet but it wouldn't have been long. My head gasket was blown and would put compression into the radiator.

A timing chain on a 22re with a broken guide will slap when you let off the throttle, and I didn't hear that when he started it up and was leaving the house.

Not ruling it out, but it's a pretty obvious sound.

Still waiting for any updates. So far it's been quiet, hopefully because he's been busy fixing problems that weren't as extensive as first feared! ;\)
