22R Engine

See Figures 1 through 11


WARNING Do not perform this operation on a warm engine. Allow the engine to cool a minimum of 3 hours, more in hot weather. Overnight cold is best.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system (both radiator and block). If the coolant is to be reused, place a large, clean container underneath the drains.



CAUTION When draining coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant may be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

  1. Remove the three exhaust pipe flange nuts and separate the pipe from the manifold.
  2. Remove the air cleaner assembly, complete with hoses, from the carburetor.

 

Cover the carburetor with a clean shop cloth so that nothing can fall into it.

  1. Drain the engine oil.



CAUTION Used motor oil may cause skin cancer if repeatedly left in contact with the skin for prolonged periods. Although this is unlikely unless you handle oil on a daily basis, it is wise to thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water immediately after handling used motor oil.

  1. Disconnect the radiator inlet hose from the water outlet.
  2. If equipped with an air pump, disconnect the air hose from the check valve.
  3. Disconnect the two heater hoses from the engine.
  4. Disconnect the accelerator cable at the carburetor.
  5. Label and disconnect these wires:

    EGR temperature sensor (Calif. vehicles only) Water temperature gauge sender Cold mixture heater wire Temperature sensor Fuel cut solenoid valve EACV (Calif. only)
  6. Label and disconnect these hoses and lines:

    Charcoal canister Brake booster Main fuel line from fuel inlet Fuel return line HAC from the bracket Electronic Bleed Air Control Valve (EBCV) Calif. vehicles Vacuum Switching Valve (VSV) with bracket
  7. Remove the rear ground strap from the engine.
  8. Remove the distributor.
  9. Remove the spark plugs.
  10. Disconnect the power steering bracket from the head.
  11. Remove the valve cover and gasket.
  12. Turn the engine clockwise (use the crank pulley bolt) until the piston is at TDC on its compression stroke. Matchmark the timing sprocket to the cam chain, and remove the semi-circular plug. Remove the cam sprocket bolt. Slide the distributor drive gear and spacer off the cam. Leave the chain on the sprocket; either wire the cam sprocket in place just off the end of the cam or rest the sprocket on the vibration damper. Tie a string or wire to the chain to keep it from falling in the engine.

Fig. Fig. 4: Remove the front cover bolt before loosening the cylinder head bolts

  1. Remove the timing chain cover bolt at the front of the head. This must be done before the head bolts are removed.
  2. Remove the cylinder head bolts in the correct order. Make two or three passes to loosen the bolts. Do not loosen any one bolt all at once; improper removal could cause head damage.

Fig. Fig. 5: Loosen the head bolts in this order, in three passes

  1. Using prybars applied evenly at the front and the rear of the valve rocker assembly, gently pry the assembly off its mounting dowels.
  2. Lift the head off its dowels. If it is difficult to lift off, pry gently with small tools. Do NOT damage the mating surfaces of the head or block. Do NOT attempt to slide the head off the block; it must be lifted.

Fig. Fig. 7: Scrape and clean the area well, insert paper into the cylinder walls to keep dirt from entering

  1. Support the head on a workbench.
  2. Remove the manifolds and EGR valve from the head on the workbench. Keep the head covered and the manifold ports plugged with rags when not working on it.
  3. Re-drain the oil pan after the head has been removed; coolant will have spilled into the pan during head removal. The coolant will pollute the oil.
  4. Remove the head gasket, never reuse the old one.


To install:

  1. Apply liquid sealer to the front corners of the block and install the head gasket.
  2. Lower the head over the locating dowels. Do not attempt to slide it into place.
  3. Install the rocker arm assembly over its positioning dowels.
  4. Install the cylinder head bolts. Tighten the bolts sequentially in three passes and in the correct order, coming to final torque on the last pass. Correct tightness is 58 ft. lbs. (78 Nm)

  1. Install the chain cover bolt. Tighten it to 9 ft. lbs. (13 Nm).
  2. Hold the chain and sprocket; double check that the engine is set to No. 1 TDC. If necessary, manually rotate the engine so that the sprocket hole is also at the top.
  3. Fit the sprocket over the camshaft dowel. If the chain won't allow the sprocket to reach, rotate the crankshaft back and forth, while lifting up on the chain and sprocket.
  4. Install the distributor drive gear and cam thrust plate over the chain sprocket; tighten the camshaft sprocket bolt to 58 ft. lbs. (78 Nm).
