Not sure what your asking but this is an overhead cam motor which means the valves that are on the high lobe of the cam are going to be open when you install the head onto the motor and there is nothing you can do about this.just make sure the crank timing marks are aligned were they should be and the cam marks are aligned when you install the head so as not to have to turn the motor much until you get all the timing marks properly lined up and the timing belt on.

Small metal clicking noise when I push gas pedal


is it just one click noise per push of the pedal or is it a repetitive clicking noise that gets faster as the engine speeds up? if its from the engine, it could be a warped valve making contact with the cylinder head. not a HUGE problem but causes less MPG and less power. to fix that, (assuming you know which valve is warped) youll need a lot of time, a lot of patience, a valve spring compressor (looks like a C clamp,) different socket wrench tools, possibly some screwdrivers, and maybe a couple more misc things. procedure: youd drain the oil, take off the valve cover, detach exhaust manifold from cyl head, remove the cylinder head, use the spring compressor to tighten the valve spring down to remove the old valve, then install the new one, put the head back on, reattach exhaust manifold, put the valve cover back on (might as well replace head and valve cover gaskets while you have the chance) then fill the oil back up. also if you had to remove anything above the valve cover to get to it, reinstall those as well.

Its a 2000 cadillac deville the oil motor goes to the radiator what can I do


Engine oil going to radiator is a cylinder head problem.
Either
1. Cylinder head gasket burnt
2. Cylinder head bolts not tight enough
3. Cylinder head cracked
4 Cylinder head warped.

Remove cyliner head and pressure test it for cracks. If cracked replace unless someone near you can repair effectively. If not then skim and you might as well do a complete cylinder head service ie valves, stem seals etc. Put back head with new gasket and torque correctly and be surprised with the results.

How do you know which valves should be open/ closed (BTDC/ATDC) on which cylinder in the head of a 4g64 sohc head to put the head in time with the crank


All of the valves in the number one cylinders should be closed when the engine marks line up at TDC (top dead center). BTDC= before top dead center, ATDC = after top dead center.

1997 Neon- DOHC. My timing belt broke or came loose. I am told that this engine is an "interference" engine. Before I repair the bad water pump and replace the timing belt,,how can I be sure...


DON'T KNOW HOW MANY MILES BUT CRYSLER PRODUCT ARE KNOWN FOR BENDING THE VALVES
WHEN THE TIMING BELT BREAKS, YOU WON'T KNOW HOW BAD THE DAMAGE IS UNTILL YOU PULL THE HEADS. NEW VALVES AND CHECKING THE HEAD COULD RUN UP AROUND 800 DOLLARS WITH OUT REPLACING THE HEAD. A NEW HEAD COMPLETE 1,700 DOLLARS THESE ARE JUST ESTIMENTS NOT A GOOD SIGN, I'LL LET YOU MAKE THE CALL 2,000 REPAIR VERSES 20,00 NEW CAR

I have a 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5L that is leaking oil into the spark plug tubes; can these seals be replaced or does the valve cover have to be replaced?


Yes, you need a Rocker cover (valve cover) Gasket kit. Remove the valve cover, remove all old O-rings and cover gasket, clean grooves and mating surfaces without gouging or scratching them, put the new gaskets on as per factory recommendations, tighten to the proper torque and you're done. The spark plug holes in the cover are part of the valve cover gasket kit. Any Napa, Car Quest, Pep Boys, Auto Zone will have it.

1995 Toyota fourrunner v6 two over head cams thanks ahead of time I just replaced the heads with new ones properly but have a question before I put the heads on I put the motor on top dead center as I am...


If your valve timming is correct the valve should not contact the piston, and upon fitting the camshaft some valves are bound to get openned. That should not worry you, before you crank start it or after installing the T-Belt and adjusting it, rotate the engine manually 360 degrees to make sure tht it does turn all the way and you can also check if the timming is right by following the valves openning and shutting at different stroke on the cylinders..the firing order should 1-3-4-2.
Hope this helps!

Oil into the cylinder


You need to replace the valve seals with new ones when you do the valves.... also... did you check the fit of the valves as the valve guides may have been damaged as well
