    ok guys I just bought a 1997 tacomoa extended cab. it has a lift and 35's on it already I was told the cam seal was leaking. but not too bad I'm going to do the work myself. just need to find parts. and some tips on what all I should change while I'm in there and does this engine have a rear cam seal on it? I have worked on many chevy V8's kind of new to toyota but I work on F/A 18 hornets I think I can work on anything. given I have a manual. any input would be helpful.

    Welcome to TW. While you're there you could probably change the plugs/wires, oil, oil filter, air filter, and the belts. Is it the V6 or I4?
