I am replacing the valve cover gasket and have only gotten on spark plug out of it. There is oil on the wire caps, and can't seem to get any of them to come out. I am using a 5/8 socket, which is it calls for. Just need a suggestion.

Engine light came on, took it in and the Fuel solenoid is faulty. Is this located in the fuel pump in the gas tank? If not, where is it?

my son has a 2000 toyota celica he told me that when hes driving it theres white smoke coming from the dash. do you have any ideas about what this might be before i take it to have it looked at?

valve tap when engine is warm

Have the Toyota Repair Manual. Replaced water pump and timing belt. Reinstalling all the stuff removed and at the step where it says "Install the Water Pump Pulley," they say to "carefully jack up your engine" (already removed the right motor mount and rear insulator) and put the pulley back on. But the engine would have to move three to four inches to get the pulley on. Will something break? Are they serious? (I am jacking from below using a block of wood under the oil pan.)

on idle when gased it pings sounds like its coming from intake manifold...

Can valve guides be replaced on a 2000 Toyota Celica, 1.8 liter 4 cylinder? If yes, how difficult is the task?

I had my mechanic replace my timing belt in which he put the new one on wrong (dash sensor indicated so). It ran but was underpowered at higher speeds. He reset the belt at what he thought was correct and it is much better (no check engine codes triggered) yet it still runs sluggishly at high speeds (need to kick it into passing gear at moderate inclines). Mileage dropped from 29 down to 25 MPG. Bob, my mechanic tried to advance the timing (loosening distibutor cap)but there doesn't seem to be a way to manually do this (computer adjusted). He is prepared to pull it all apart again yet with work involved wanted professional opinion/ advise first. Tune-up was done yet didn't make a difference.
