    Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hey all, I have a 2009 Toyota Camry XLE with the V6 (2GR-FE) engine, and recently I've started hearing chirping noises coming from the belt system on the right side of the engine. I can't figure out what it is exactly, but here is a video of the sound I'm talking about: New video by Zareef Huq I...

    I've got a 2014 2.5, and I was going to put on a lightweight crank pulley from NST. Only problem is, I cannot find the torque spec for the crank bolt anywhere. If anybody has any clues, please let me know. Thanks

  5. 96 Camry 4cy - Oil Pump Pulley Hex Nut

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Doing the timing belt job and decided to change out the oil pump seals as well. The flanged hex nut on the oil pump pulley was totally seized on there (12mm) and so had a difficult time removing it. Definitely more than the 21 ft/lb that the manual calls for. Ended up rounding out and marring...

  7. Pulley Making Noise\Oil Burning

    Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    I'm trying to figure out what the pulley is called so I can replace it. The car is a 93 Corolla with the 1.6l SOHC engine. I thought it was the harmonic balancer but I think that's the same as the crankshaft pulley. It is the other pulley that accommodates 2 belts. One I believe goes to the...
  8. tensioner pulley help plzz reply fast

    Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I bought a new pulley for my tensioner, but I guess the bolt holding it in is a torx for 2006 and later. I am curious how people have gotten it out. (and just to verify, I am turning the wrench toward the windshield, am I just stupid and turning the wrong way????? - its so tight that I cant tell)
  9. Another Belt Chirp or Squeal Thread

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    '02 Avalon with 250K miles. This summer I had my mechanic replace all the belts (was 40k overdue). A few days after I got it back there was quite a bit of belt squeak. He took it for a day and adjusted everything. It was fine for 2-3 months. Then every time I started it there was a shrill...

    I'm wondering if there exists a set of lightweight (not underdrive) accessory (not crank) pulleys for the 1ZZ-FE engine. If so, could anyone tell me the brand and/or give me a link?
  11. Stubborn Crankshaft Pulley Removal

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    So, I was replacing my girlfriend's 1996 Camry's front brakes and as I was testing the car out, I heard a wonderful noise coming from the drive belt assembly. I thought it might be a belt problem but after inspection, it appears to be the harmonic balancer wobbling really bad. I looked and it...

  14. 96 Tercel Squeel

    Tercel, Paseo, Starlet, and Sera Forum
    Forgive me if I'm duplicating a thread, I didn't see one in my initial, nowhere near thorough, search. When my Tercel starts up it squeals, then keeps with the high pitched noise when it runs. I'm assuming it's the idler pulley. it's coming from the belt area, and it looks like the belts could...

    Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Does anyone know where I can find instructions online to remove the idler pulley? I found a Toyota repair manual but it doesn't say anything about it. I just wanted to prepare instead of going in blind so that I can minimize downtime. TIA

    On my 1991 All-Trac wagon, 4A-FE, I just did my first ever timing belt job, along with replacing the water pump. Here's what I learned. 1. The Toyota Factory Manual is an incredibly valuable resource. If you don't own one, get one. 2. This job was a good excuse to buy more tools without...

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hey Guys! The mechanic told me that my timing belt slipped on my 1MZ-FE 1995 Camry, so I decided to tackle the project myself. After I was able to get the timing belt covers off I found that the LH Camshaft Timing Pulley is Cracked and I also found a roller from the Camshaft bearing. My...
  20. Alternator Seized - Van Sat for Weeks

    Previa Forum
    So after tearing through an alternator/drive belt I figured out that my alternator had seized after my van sat for a month. I took a pipe wrench to the pulley and got it to turn (the pulley that is) but it still sticks in spots. I thought about taking the alternator out, taking the pulley...
