  1. Yes, I did everything I knew to properly "burp" the system, even had it on ramps. I decided to start opening the engine up to get an idea of the internal condition. It was horrible. Now I'm in the process of rebuilding the motor, head gasket was shot and cylinder head was warped .002" out of limit. Thanks for the reply.
  2. Hey guys, Upon disassembly of my cylinder head it was found that my VVTI oil control valve housing, or the fwd cap on the intake camshaft, was missing both aft attachment holes for the bolts. For the life of me I cannot find a part number for this housing. I contacted the Toyota dealership in my local small town and it was painful to describe what I was talking about to the parts girl. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  3. Hey guys, I changed my starter, plugs, wires, radiator hoses and thermostat today. When I started the car it fired right up and ran beautifully. After about 2 miles I noticed my coolant temp gauge on the rise. Luckily I pulled in the garage right as it was approaching the red mark. I did a search on the forums and it seemed like any problem people were encountering were related to thermostat or coolant quantity, both of which were addressed today during maintenance. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
