What is involved in replacing an expansion valve on my 1998 Toyota 4Runner?

December 17th, 2010 · No Comments

I am pretty mechanically inclined so I want to do this myself as I can only afford the part and not the labor. I understand it is evacuating the A/C system, replacing the valve, and then charging again. I do not know where the valve is, specifically and if it requires certain industry tools. I have replaced CV joints, done valve jobs, brakes, etc…(A little background, so you can determine if I can do this.)

Location of a/c valve for 1993 toyota camry?

December 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Hi, I already have everything I need to charge my a/c for my toyota camry, but I don’t know which valve it is?
One valve is in front of the passenger’s side and has a blue cap and is lower than the rest.
Another one is in front of the driver’s side, but closer to the front of the car, where the headlights are, it’s also higher than the rest and has a black cap.

Cleaning EGR valve on 98 Toyota Camry?

December 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Can anyone comment on the process involved in cleaning the EGR valve on a 1998 Toyota Camry. Any cautions or tips. Is there a gasket that will need to be replaced, and do I need to use a sealer if there is? I am assuming that throttle body cleaner is the best solvent to use. I want to try cleaning it before I pony up $165.00 for a new one. I have basic mechanical knowledge and tools, and the part removal and re-install looks to be easy enough as it sits right on top of the engine. There always seem to be some little hang up on these “simple” jobs. Any assistance or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

December 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Problem: I am looking to buy a used car. Although I would love to buy a Honda or a Toyota, money is an issue. I heard that the Chevy Prism has a Toyota Corolla engine. Is that true? And is it as reliable as a Toyota Corolla? I’m looking for a reliable car that will last me for many years, with proper maintenance of course. Should I consider this Chevy Prism or just suck it up and get a Toyota or a Honda?
