  1. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hi. I am working on a 1999 Solara with a 1MZ V6. I have experience with changing timing belts on the Camry 5SFE, other 4 cylinders, and a 3VZ. I have searched and have not found the answer to my question: With the cam pulleys lined up to their respective timing marks, where is the crankshaft...
  2. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    I have a 2009 with the 1.8 with a suspected burnt head gasket. My question is, has anyone tore into one of these and the deck surface been torched? I'm worried since it's an aluminum block. TIA for the advice.
  3. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I've got a 2000 Camry with the 5S-FE (257K miles) that I'm in the process of replacing the timing belt, water pump, oil seals, etc. I already have the timing covers off, the crankshaft pulley pulled, etc. While I was waiting for a part to come in, I pulled the plugs and found that #4 seems a...

    Hello everyone. I have garnered the job of helping a friend solve her issue with misfire and overheating. A little history/background... the car had been sitting for 2+ years waiting on body work to be completed on the front clip. Once I was able to help her secure the car from the shop, I was...
  5. Supra Gen1 thru Gen4 (1979-1998)
    Every place I find, those ARP bolts/studs are out on back order indefinitely. I need to swap ASAP because I just bought a stock mk3 that doesnt have this upgrade. I found the thread callout being a M12X1.25mm. Anyone have a length so I can find an equivalent on mcmastercarr or some other...

    2018 HL XLE V6 AT. Bought certified used in March of this year, 36k when we got it. Now at 42k. Service done so far is oil and filter, ATF drain and fill, 4x4 service. In November I noticed the coolant reservoir tank was completely empty. So in 8 months it consumed an entire tank full of...

  8. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hey all. So I’m having to replace my head gasket. Yay. It also PAST time to replace the timing belt and water pump, as members pointed out. I’m also loosing power steering fluid slowly from what appears to be a bad seal (no noticeable change in performance or noise). So, i find myself...
  9. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I’ve got a blown head gasket in a 1996 Camry LE, following overheating. #2 cylinder is full of oil, and the spark plug wire boot in #4 aparently MELTED and resolidified around the spark plug like cooled lava. Getting that plug out will take an act of congress. And why bother? Not when… I’ve...
  10. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Hello! My '92 Holden Apollo is definitely showing signs of needing a head gasket replacement (white smoke, water in tailpipe, slow but noticeable coolant use). What concerns me is what I'll find when I get in there - the car had been sitting for a while (was a grandma's car who could no longer...
  11. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hey there! I have a 2009 Corolla LE I bought last night for $1,300 not running. I was able to get it to come to life but it only runs if I have my foot on the gas and dies if I put it in gear or take it off, it makes a weird noise when I rev it in gear, and supplies some white smoke, which it...
  12. 89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    Hello Everyone 😊 When is it time to rebuild or replace an engine instead of fixing/repairing multiple issues? I realize there are a lot of variables to this but in the basic sense, when’s the best time to just go all in? I have a 1990 Toyota Pickup 4x4 with the 3VZE engine and 5speed manual...
  13. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    03 Camry 2.5L with 190k miles, bought last week for $2500. The jabroni poured Blue Devil or equivalent into it, Changed the oil and coolant right before I looked at it, and reset the Check Engine Light.

  15. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Working on a blown head gasket (lord please let it just be the gasket), I don't have an engine hoist so I'm trying to pull the head off with the intake manifold and fuel rail connected and leaving the engine in the vehicle. This is the first time I've ever done any engine work ever. So far it's...
  16. Cressida Forum
    found a 1990 cressida near me that looks to be in good shape but the owner says it is having over heating issues. i texted him and he told me it over heats after about 20 minutes. he also said that he suspects a water pump or heater core to be the issue because the pump leaks when running...
  17. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hi there, I'm hoping someone out there has some familiarity with this problem (I can't find any solutions online so far) I have recently purchased a 2007 2.2d T180 Auris (or Corolla mk9 I have learned by joining these forums!) and I have a problem! I've trawled the net for the last 2 weeks for...

    What I got: 94 pickup, 3.0L V6 4WD, Ext. Cab, ~150,000 miles Symptoms: Coolant leaking from exhaust, white smoke, Radiator nearly dry, mis firing after it runs for 15 minutes. Is there a way to tell if this is a Blown Head Gasket vs. Cracked Block? Does it make a difference in terms of...

    Alright, so I'm a first time Toyota owner, and its a actually one of the first cars I've ever purchased. I bought a 1989 Celica GT (Not an all track, but still, I already love the car) the only problem is that I made it an hour out before it overheated, leaving me with some quality time in a...
  20. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    I´ve been loosing coolant on my 01 Corolla that is powered by a 7AFE engine. I´ve already replaced the radiator cap and the lower plastic radiator tank because it had a small crack. I decided to put a funnel over the radiator fill hole and add coolant when the engine was cold to see if there was...
