    REMOVAL
    Preparation: Battery ground

    1. Common chamber duct
    2. Common chamber See: Intake Manifold\Service and Repair
    3. Fuel hose

      • Disconnect feed and return hose from fuel pipe.

    1. Cylinder head cover

    INSTALLATION

    1. Cylinder head cover

    See TSB SB94-01-003 12-94 (see below)

    • Clean the sealing surface of cylinder head and cylinder head cover to remove oil and sealing materials completely. Apply sealant (TB-1207B or equivalent) of bead diameter 2-3 mm to four places of arched area of camshaft brackets on front and rear sides.
    • Tighten bolts to the specified torque N.m (lb.in) 8 (69)

    TSB INFO:

    When reinstalling cylinder head covers on affected vehicles, care must be taken to ensure that the head cover bolts are properly tightened. Use only a good quality torque wrench and tighten only to the specifications listed in the appropriate Workshop Manual. Do not use air impact wrenches to tighten cylinder head cover bolts. Air wrenches tighten the bolt until the corner tab on the cylinder head cover either cracks or breaks (Figure 1). Once the tab is damaged, an oil leak will result. This damage can be incorrectly diagnosed as a leaking head gasket or a rear main oil seal. Cracked or broken cylinder head covers due to over tightening are not covered under warranty.

    Okay, first we need to know if you have the SOHC or DOHC engine.


    Then we need to make sure that when you say "right side" you mean the passenger side.
