FAQ's Auto Repair

Why Does My Car Keep Burning Off The Oil?
I Drive A 2002 Toyota Avalon And Theres About 116,000 Miles On It. The Previous Owner Was My Mother So I Know Where It Came From. The Biggest Physical Sign That Tells Me Something Is Wrong Is That It Burns Through It'S Supply Of Oil Before It Should And It Smokes When I Cold-Start It. I Got An Oil Change 2 Months Ago, And I Put One Quart Of Oil In It About A Month Ago. I Went To The Oil Changing Place Two Days Ago To Have My Fluids Topped Off And They Had To Put In 3-4 Quarts Of Oil. More Often Than Not, A Big Cloud Of Smoke Will Come Out Of The Exhaust If It Hasn'T Been Started In A While, Especially If It'S Warm Outside. It'S Not Leaking Any Oil And There Doesn'T Seem To Be Any Other Problems As Far As I Can Tell. It'S Been Given A Once-Over By A Mechanic A While Ago But I Don'T Think He Looked Hard Enough. Can Anyone Think Of What It Might Be? Solutions?? Thank You!!

Ouch. My 01 Camry puffs a little bit when I start it cold in the mornings. If your car is using that much oil in such a short period of time, here are some things to consider:
Your oil seals could be worn out. This can come from sitting still for a long time or being hard on the car.
You could have a cracked head or head gasket. Is there oil in your antifreeze, or antifreeze in you oil? (Can't remember which it is)
Has your car overheated?
Either way, its not gonna be a cheap fix unless you know what you're doing and can handle the job yourself. That engine's on it's last leg.

Factory Rebuilt 3Vze For 92 Toyota Pickup 4X4. Good To Go?
So I Love The 89-95 Toyota Ext Cab 4X4 Pickup. Most Of The Few I've Seen For Sale Are Equipped With The Infamous 3Vze 3.0 6Cyl. One In Particular Has Low Overall Miles And The Engine Was Rebuilt By Toyota On The Factory Recall. Once Rebuilt, Are These Engines Good To Go, Or Do You Stand The Same Chance Of A Blown Head Gasket That You Did Before? I Know The 22R Was Better, But That's Not My Question. I Want To Know How Reliable One Can Expect This Engine To Be. It Has 140K Miles And Was Rebuilt 30K Miles Ago (Obviously Hasn't Been Driven Much Since Then). Thanks

well for the 3.0 3vze, i found a few articles on this question,

this article deals with alot of people talking about how long there 3vze lasted before and after the head gasket problem.
http://www.yotatech.com/f2/3vze-how-many...

and this other article is
http://yotatech.com/f2/3vze-vs-22re-5427...

"I'll take the 22re AND the 3vze!

I think the 3vze is one hell of a reliable engine. Significantly more reliable than other manufacturers of the era these engines were produced. The 22RE is also a reliable engine - more reliable than the 3vze? I don't think so.

The one hindering thing with the 3vze that lots of mostly non owner "theorists," seem to like to point out when debating the merits of the 3vze vs 22RE or other engines they think they know well is the headgasket problem. But I think something needs to be made very clear about the head gasket "problem." First, it is not a Problem. The headgasket put in these vehicles at the factory was the WRONG head gasket. Wrong in terms of design, or material, probably a bit of both. When Toyota put the Right head gasket in, either with the last year (95) of the 4runner/pickup with the 3vze, or through the recall, the 3vze is every bit as reliable as the 22re. If they were just replacing the head gasket during the recall with the same one they put in the factory when the truck was built, and the recalled head gasket wasn't holding up, then it would be a problem. But the redesigned proper headgasket holds up, so it is not a "problem." Calling it a problem would insinuate that it reptitively occurs in this truck. But it is clear that it does not. It may have happened once - with the original head gasket if the dealer didn't get to it first with the recall, but when it's taken care of, it's taken care of. People seem to forget that the 22re has a skeleton on the closet in the timing chain. This slight flaw can also be fixed by changing the timing chain more regularly (i.e. paying attention to its maintenance) or buying metal timing chain guides over the stock plastic ones. But when both of these flaws are addressed with the fixes available, these engines are simply flawless! (if that makes any sense)." CoedNaked-yotatech.com

AgRunner06-
You seem to have forgotten the issue of the #6 exhaust valve burning. The cure for that seems to be elimination of the crossover, headers, and exhaust. People have had the recalled HG fail so it can still be an issue/problem. It also seems that more people have problems with the 3vze than the 22re on this board.

I like the 22re better for these reasons:
1. More reliable.
2. Better gas mileage.
3. Much easier to work on. If the HG goes (which does happen every once and while), you can easily fix it yourself.
4. More and cheaper aftermarket parts. You can easily and cheaply build a reliable 22re with the same amount of power as the 3vze. Intake, cam, header, and exhaust is all you need.
5. Relatively the same amount of power with the 5-speed when the 3.slow has the auto behind it (or so I'm told).
6. Much cheaper to replace.

I would much rather prefer to have the 22re and do some mods to it. It's just an overall better engine without the design flaws of the 3.slow. If my motor goes, it's getting a swap but probably not for a 22re. If I'm going to go through that trouble, I'm getting power.


EDIT: Replacing the timing chain guides is very minor and inexpensive compared to a HG on the 3vze.

I Have A 1991 Camaro With A 305 And A Toyota Supra 3.0 They Both Busted The Radiators Wide Open Under Pressure?
Both Cars Got Really Hot Over 260 And The Busted The Radiators Wide Open, Are The Head Gaskets Blown?

In addition to the first post, you can use a compression tester or leak down gauge to pump air into each cylinder listening for air leakage with both valves closed. Check for water in the oil, and also oil in the water.

Keep in mind with the 305 at least, that the heads are prone to cracking when the engine is over heated.
