    The front valve cam assembly looks cleaner than the back valve and cam assembly.

    I feel that Ray has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. However I feel this is a good thing if he is working on your vehicle. If I don't feel the urge to work on my vehicle, it will go to Eric O. Since he is not far from me, however I would trust both to service my vehicles.
    You all probably guessed I'm a Ford Fan. Ray seems to be good with both, Ford and GM. Ditto with Eric O.

    Longitudinally mounted V engines should be illegal. So hard to work on

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stanley Mcfalls The Southern Comedian says:

    Thanks for the video ooooo and I think the new them at the beginning is cool 😊

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joshua Mccloud says:

    Like the fact you got jelly roll playing

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon A says:

    Whats the torque sequence for that intake lololol

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richardd Hutchens says:

    I lost 9/16. 1/4 drive 25 years ago cpst 32. Dollars to replace

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richardd Hutchens says:

    How many sockets you lose per month lol

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gerardo Lopez says:

    I didn't see him doing the half-moon seals they always need to be done when doing valve covers on these cause they leak from there as well toyota/lexus engines

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Dove says:

    Love your work. Hate that digital torque wrench. Sounds annoying in your videos. In practice I prefer the traditional click. For low torque stuff i quickly test the force needed on something already higer just to calibrate my arms. This way I feel when I am close.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ed Chenal says:

    Methodical work.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Gould says:

    Does anyone know the design reasoning for the "basket gasket"? The only logical reason I can come up with would be to disrupt the airflow going into the intake, possibly to better balance how the air goes into the manifold and cylinders. Or were the Toyota/Lexus engineers concerned about large items getting dropped into the intake track? 🙂

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Parker says:

    👍

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Haughey says:

    Hi Ray, been watching your videos for some time now, really fascinating watching you work I would be interested in seeing all of your tools, you must have a fortune tied up in them. It amasses me every time I see you coming out with different tools to complete your job.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ken Stevens says:

    I know what it’s like to need eyeballs in your fingertips after 45 years of twisting wrenches, still need them sometimes working on my Hotrod.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars grandmaster Jim says:

    Washed my engine just like you did at the end, and should have waited until it was stone cold. Cracked the block and had to junk my car.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Parker says:

    I noticed you did repair the plastic clips you broke off of the plugs for the injectors…vibration soon will find this motorist on the side of the road when the injector clips vibrate loose and come unplugged and the injectors will not fire….naughty boy Ray!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Allen says:

    You literally have to tear that engine apart just to change the back spark plugs….sometimes I wonder who designs these cars. Nice video though. Kind of feel sorry for the owner of this P.O.S, it cost them a fortune just for valve cover gaskets.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ric Mackie says:

    Watch the self-talk. It adds up and we start to believe our self-talk after a while, even if obviously untrue. Great work!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Milosz says:

    I don't like you beepy torque wrench. Clicks are preferable to beeps, haptically speaking

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Schmohe from Simcoe says:

    I think the ground wire to to bleed off static electicicles from the plastic manifold? Static electricicles kill electronical parts dead.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Darren says:

    YES!😊

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Radio Rescue says:

    Yeah I've done a few of these (Well the 3.0L) in the Avalon's and that back wiring harness will make you say dirty words. As it gets in the way of installing the back valve cover as your gasket falls off. Because it's not easy to get to, these gaskets rarely get serviced. So the gaskets are hard as a rock and like in the prior video the spark plugs seals refuse to come out! Good times!

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RyeOnHam says:

    That EVAP clamp was bothering me for about 10 minutes.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Michaels says:

    Top job Sir! You're an inspiration for quality..Thank you for sharing…NJ

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stefan Buscaylet says:

    Question from a guy who loves Rays videos but I am not a car mechanic but feel like I can find a repair guy better because of the content. Question: why does the customer bring their own parts vs having the shop get what they need? Do shops typically charge more for customer brought parts similar to a restaurant charging a corkage fee?

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ezequiel cordero says:

    Surprised 😮 you did not tighten sparkplug before using wrench, you probably can tell if they start to strip

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars aenoymotors says:

    My wife used to have the non hybrid RX from that same time period. Was a great car.

    All fasteners?…let's see you empty your pockets.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars andrewwturner says:

    Very slick, really enjoyed these two. He got me at the end though, I didn't think we'd get to see it running. Didn't realise this had become a 'thing' for me watching these until just now.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don's Junkmail says:

    "No worry's…I got it" holy smokes that was quick!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Leonard Cole says:

    And also locate it like where is it. That’s why they are blue.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don's Junkmail says:

    And bars leak…don't go in the bushes.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Longeno55 says:

    I thoroughly enjoyed the heck out of part one and part two of this Lexus repeat video and can hardly wait until the next one

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don's Junkmail says:

    On second thought maybe two bottles Skotty K At205…

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruce Augustine says:

    You didn't forget the ground wire.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SStreet says:

    Nice intro Ray, makes for a great part 2 or more intro for you multi-part videos. It's a keeper. 🙂

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charlie sw9ve says:

    What about the zip tie fix for the broken coil pack plugs? I really wanted to see how you did that. I didn't see any on it in the video.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Longeno55 says:

    The YouTube automotive master technician god! Doo doo dee doo to you!!!
