Hey guys, I just picked up a 2001 Spyder with 116k and I'm new to Toyota. The car got a huge leak and oil blow by from the exhaust (white smoke) when cold start. I just fine a dye leak detector and here is what I found. Look like someone did a poor job on the valve gasket and oil pan. There are overrun rubber sealant on the corner of valve cover and timing tensioner. I want to know if the engine is still worth saving? I'm planning a 2zz swap in the future.... what are the common leaking point for 1zz ?
