Detail: What are the valve clearances for a 2e 12 valve engine?
Solution: I have Toyota Corolla EE80 2E engine with 12 valves. I recently top overhaul but the engine is not running in perfect condition. The engine rpm goes up and down (engine shaky). I set the rpm around 1200, if i set it lower than that the engine will stop. I check the engine timing with both the cam and crank on the correct mark. Sounds like the carburetor failure but i had service it but still the same. If i turn the distributor to the right (******) the engine rpm drop, than i turn it to the left (advance) but the rpm drop too, as i know the engine rpm should raise high and could hear the pinking sound from the valves if the the engine accelerate. For your info, i bought the cylinder head from someone who previously general overhaul his engine about 6 months ago. He dismantle his engine because of con rod problem. I just fix the cylinder head to my engine without grinding and adjusting the valves because it had been grind and adjusted 6 months ago. I check the spark plugs but look all black. I pull the plug cable one by one during the running it sounds all ok. Now i wonder what is actually wrong with the engine? Do i need to adjust the valve clearance too? What is the valve clearance for both exhaust and inlet, hot and cold? If i do the valve adjustment and yet still the problem, what is next? , Need a carburator and vacuum diagram for my 2e engine corolla 1996 model big body. , They are in the hood white sticker. if the car was in an accident they may be gone, If you want give detail informatiion about the vehicle, year and model ( 2e 12 valve) dont help much. , I have a 2e engine in my offroad race car, and i set my valve clearance for both inlet and exhaust while engine is cold at 0.003, if you set it with a gap any larger than that, it will give you noisy tappets , Hi, a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
