  1. Prius 2nd Gen - Hybrid (2004-2009)
    So I took my engine apart and when I went to install everything back I notice that the timing gear rotates freely left and right. Manual says it should have a lock pin that would lock in the most retarded position. I saw a few videos of people opening the gear and not finding a place for the...

    So I'm changing the water pump off my 99 Camry, over heating and this was diagnosed as the issue. When I get the harmonic balancer, the bolt was on there pretty good. Had to buy ridgid 1/2 impact wrench to get that sucker off. In the process, my cam and balancer markers got unaligned. How would...

    I took the left V-bank cover off my 1999 1MZ-FE (146,000 miles) to fix the valve cover gasket leak. Looked surprisingly clean (red stains everywhere on the head, camshafts, gears etc, no sludge, lots of black burnt oil deposited on the cover which I thoroughly cleaned out). Noticed that the...

    The computer is returning P1379 camshaft position sensor. Where is this sensor located on a 2002 Toyota Camry 2.4L and how easy would you rate the job of replacing it?

    I played mechanic with my 1994 toyota camry 2.2L. I figured it would be easy to just put a gasket in and it would all be better. So I had a blown head gasket confirmed by my local mechanic who wanted 750 to fix it. I dont have that. I got the head gasket back in and the timing right. but when my...
  18. Prius 2nd Gen - Hybrid (2004-2009)
    Hi everyone, 1st post. I have a 2007 Prius that I suspected had a bad VVT gear when I checked it the first time. The gear will rotate counter-clockwise by 1 tooth, but lock as it should where 2 dots line up. I have taken the entire camshaft assembly with the VVT gear to show a Toyota master...

  20. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    I am wanting to upgrade my cams, but don't really have money right now to purchase both for my 1zz-fe. Would it be OK for me to just buy one and install it, or wait to get both? What difference would it make? Would it hurt my engine to do just one cam upgrade?
