Hello i was wondering is it a lot of work to change the valve head on my toyota rav4 2.0 16v 1998 ?
I just did all the maintenance including the timingbelt so this is now .........Valve head?
Do you mean valve cover gasket?
I do not know your skill level, and since there are many things, that if not done right, can make the job go south fast, I cannot say whether you can do it successfully without issues.
Ouch, that doesn't bode well for a DIY mechanic with "big hands" on a much more involved job. (You are much better at interpreting "its just a krak bij tichtening the oilsensor" than I.)he has cracked his head by over-tightening the oil pressure sensor and cannot get it to seal up, so now he is sourcing a replacement head.
Yeh I would try cutting it back and re-tapping it, just make sure no swarf goes down the hole (use an earplug or somthing as I mentioned in the other thread), vaccuum the swarf out and extract the plug at the end.I contacted someone that restores engines also for racing sport.
He said it could be repaired.
He would close the hole and pull new wire to replace the oil sensor.
On Monday he will contact me to tell me the cost for this repair he said it would not be much.
I hoop so because i don't won't to change the valve-head :frown
