If you want to replace links, feel free. However, if keeping the smaller one and adding this one is possible, I would think that would a better option. That's just me though. Very handy reference. Good job. I have a paper '99 FSM that has all this stuff. If you like, I can scan the relevant pages and send them to you. Maybe you can PM me an e-mail address. Or if you have some other way to do it?
Doc No problem. You might list the original thread in the header paragraph of your top post here. That way if someone wants the quick and dirty version they can get to it.
I did also link both in the "Master Directory of Should be adequate. Thanks for the hard work put into this! TheDurkAnything else you'd like to see added? Thanks very much. Saved me time and angst when reinstalling fuel injectors.

This is the only VZ series engine, which uses cylinder heads with one camshaft; it was being installed in the off-road Toyota models. Inthe production of a more modern 3VZ-FE engine has started. Differences between 3VZ-FE and its precursor 2VZ-FE are the following: a new forged crankshaft with 82 mm stroke, new pistons, the compression ratio of 9.
The diameter of the exhaust valves is The toothed timing belt is used to drive the camshaft. You should replace it every 50, miles of mileage 90, km. The cooling system has also been modified; the injection system has been improved.
The exhaust manifold has also been changed. The firing order for the 3VZ engines is This is the most common problem of the 3VZ engine. If the coolant level is normal, then check the cooling fan, it often fails. If everything is alright with it, then you need to check the radiator cap, thermostat and radiator condition.
Most likely, you just need to adjust the valves. Valves clearances on the cold engine are the following: 0. Other 3VZ engine problems: increased connecting rod bearings wear; sometimes cylinder head cracks occur. These engines are very old, so do not be surprised if in 3VZ-FE oil consumption increases or anything else happens.
Use only high-quality engine oil, have your engine serviced regularly, and monitor the cooling system condition. This will increase 3VZ engine lifespan and you will be able to drive more thanmiles of mileagekm. Look at the picture below, it is to help you find the number location. The best choice to increase the 3VZ engine power is head porting.
Just give your cylinder heads to the tuning company for port and polish. Also, buy some performance parts, such as cold air intake, headers, and 2. What not to do: increase the compression ratio, buy lightweight pistons, buy aftermarket intake manifold, and so on.
It is expensive and it will not give a lot of horsepower. Just sell your car and buy a more powerful one or swap a more powerful engine. The second option is to build a turbo kit using Toyota Supra turbochargers, make turbo manifolds, do everything custom. As a result, your engine will lose its reliability, still not producing a high power. Mitsubishi 4G Honda K20A K20C. Honda K24A K24Z. Honda R18A.

Oil holes are placed in the center of the crankshaft for supplying oil to the connecting rods, pistons and other components. Crankshaft main journal diameter is Pistons are made of high temperature—resistant aluminum alloy, and depression is built into the piston head to prevent interference with the valves.
Piston pins are the full—floating type, with the pins fastened to neither the piston boss nor the connecting rods. Each piston is equipped with two compressions and one oil control rings. The top compression ring is made of steel and the second compression ring is made of cast iron.
The oil ring is made of a combination of steel and stainless steel. The outer diameter of each piston ring is slightly larger than the diameter of the piston and the flexibility of the rings allows them to a hub the cylinder walls when they are mounted on the piston.
Bore is The cylinder heads are made of aluminum alloy, with a cross-flow type intake and exhaust layout and with pent—roof type combustion chambers. The spark plugs are located in the center of the combustion chambers.
The intake camshafts are driven by a single timing belt, and a gear on the intake camshaft engages with a gear on the exhaust camshaft to drive it. The camshaft journal is supported at five intake or four exhaust places between the valve lifters of each cylinder and on the front end of the cylinder head.
The intake valves are Exhaust and intake valves are equipped with irregular pitch springs made of special valve spring carbon steel which are capable of functioning no matter what the engine speed.Remember Me?

Toyota 3VZ-FE 3.0L Engine Review
Feel free to PM me, about anything. Awesome thread Doc! Torquing is probably one of the most important jobs someone can do aside to repairing and replacing. Good info; good idea to make it a sticky. Just what I was looking for.Toyota started the production of 3. This engine was installed in other off-road Toyota models in the future.
The engine is similar to its predecessor the 2VZ engine, but the more significant displacement is not the one difference. The cast iron cylinder block looks the same, but it is taller by 20 mm the height is mm.
The angle between cylinders in V-shape configuration of the block is 60 deg. Inside the block, there is new forged crankshaft with nine counterweights and 82 mm stroke. The compression ratio of these engines is only 9. The redeveloped version and more performance engine the 3VZ-FE was produced from to The engine doesn't have hydraulic lifters.
The shape of intake valves also was changed. There are numbers for adjusting valve gaps: 0. Timing belt drives the intake cams. The exhaust cam is driven by intake camshaft through gear in the middle of the cylinder head. The exhaust system also was tuned and optimized. The engine was designed to be installed with 15 deg angle to use it in many applications.MaksWerks Garage - 1991 Toyota 4Runner Valve Cover Gasket DIY
First of all the engine has the problem with overheating. The reason can hide in the bad head gasket. Also, the coolant fan doesn't do its job as good as should. Try to keep the radiator clean and the required coolant level for this engine to prevent overheating in the future. The 3VZ has the issue with increased connecting rod bearings wear and cylinder head cracks. The engine life is aboutmileskm. Increased oil consumption or knocking noises from cylinder block area can recognize a soon death.
