is the 22re different than the 22r? i didn't have to drop the pan when i did clampy...a toyota tech told me not to bother unless i thought there were pieces of chain or gasket in the pan. didn't pull head either, just slipped the front cover out from inbetween.

IF your guides are completely intact and IF you see no evidence that some chunks of aluminum have parted ways from the timing cover you can get away without pulling the pan - and without cleaning any sludge from it.

Yes, you can get away with not changing the HG, but they do have a service life, and I'd rather replace one on my time table than its time table.

22R and 22RE longblocks are identical for a given year.

Pieces of my guides were broken, and were sitting in the oil pan. To change the head gasket don't you have to disassemble the timing chain stuff too? Seems like all that stuff is interconnected. Boy I don't want to have to drive the 40 every day to work while I fix that, but that problem is either way...

Smile It's all about your driving style...

Going to La Plata and back yesterday (278 miles on the odometer) via I-70 I netted myself 29.5 mpg! I let the speed drop to around 50-55 on the uphills (3rd gear, a little bit of 4th gear), and tried to cruise between 55 and 60 for most of the rest of it. On the way home I was getting it a little more, but it was downhill so you can go 75 in 5th without touching the gas

I'm telling ya, it's all about driving style...now I want to take a trip to Nebraska or Wyoming where I don't have all those hills to fight! On the way back I set the cruise control on 52 mph in 3rd gear and just let it go on the way up to Eisenhower!
