2000 Toyota Celica Q&A
2000 Toyota Celica Question: Are my valve seals to blame?
Vehicle has two plugs with oil on them.one is saturated. car runs relatively fine at idle but when accelerated it runs rough.no external leaks. no oil in coolant or vice versa.used a stethescope on the engine and everything sounds fine.can't do a compression or leak down test because of where the car is located. Plus when its running it smells really rich, guessing cuz of all the oil and the 02 sensor.I'm guessing its the valve seals.would i becorrect in this assumption.plus the check engine light is showing a catalyst damaging issue is occurring - j.sowers
No I do not think its valve seals. The fact that its running rich could foul plugs and thin oil out with fuel. I suggest you get fault codes read first and repost them here to see if anyone here can help. - milesauto
Could be a lot of things. - pushrod
