  1. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Ok, so this was a tough choice for me and I am curious of other peoples point of view in regards to some repairs I just green lighted to my local independent shop. I have a 1997 Camry with the 4cyl that I bought about 1 1/2 years ago. I bought it due to the fact that in my opinion both the...
  2. 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...
  3. 4Runner 3rd Generation (1996-2002)
    Hey all, I recently bought a 2001 4Runner SR5 (2wd) last november, and it's finally time to give it some much-needed TLC... For context, this is a 5VZ-FE engine with ~260k miles on her. I have only done multiple oil changes and automatic transmission drain & fills since owning this car. I...
  4. Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    On the passenger side of my vehicle, right under the front passenger side motor mount, is the RH side engine mount. I've already taken the motor mount off and removed the upper timing belt cover to get to my timing belt. On my vehicle I have to take off the RH side motor mount to completely...
  5. Sienna 1st Generation (1998-2003)
    Hey guys. I recently did a timing belt and water pump job on my 2002 Toyota Sienna with the 1MZ-FE VVT-I engine. The car runs and drives great, but I noticed if I park the car after I drive it a bit and it’s warm I hear a squeaking/chirping noise coming from the timing belt area at the top of...
  6. T-100 Forum
    Alright, so next project to do is the timing belt replacement on my t100 (95, V6 2wd manual). I don't know when it was last replaced and truck is at 277k. I am looking for the kit (with water pump etc). Any pointers and directions to good internet vendors? I will not do this, will give to my...
  7. Tundra 1st Generation (2000–2006)
    Hello all, I am new to this forum and I am hoping some of you will be able to shed some light on a question I have about my new-to-me 2003 Tundra. I just bought the truck, which is an '03 access cab with the 3.4L V6 manual and 179k miles. It was a one-owner truck before me and the original...
  8. 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...
  9. Sienna 1st Generation (1998-2003)
    I recently did a timing belt on my 2002 Toyota Sienna. I went to start the car and it seems like I might be a tooth off because it is running poorly. My new timing belt came without lines or marks on it indicating where it should go on. I am wondering how many teeth are supposed to be between...
  10. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I bought this 2007 Solara Convertible (V6) with 48K miles. Because of the vehicle’s age, I had the timing belt and the associated accessories (Aisin TKT-026 Kit) replaced by a reputable mechanic shop. I noted a chirping/squeaking noise in the engine compartment on the passenger side. This...
  11. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    My 2001 HL has a slight shake in the steering wheel. It started in December with a shake in the steering wheel typically around 65/70 mph, but it wasn’t always. When I rotated the tires, the shake became more pronounced, so I rotated them back. I got the tires rebalanced to see if that was the...
  12. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    For a little while my camry was having some problems with slightly lower power and an oil leak, so I opened up the valve covers on the front and rear to replace the gasket, and saw that the interior was absolutely caked in sludge. After about an hour cleaning I was happy with the reduced sludge...
  13. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hello all, So I've just replaced a busted timing belt on my 4cyl. Solara, and everything works great, but I've had a nagging worry ever since. All of the videos and specs clearly indicate that the tensioner and idler pulleys need to be tightened to 31 ft lbs. My torque wrench only goes up to...
  14. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I have a 98 4th gen camry, and I was looking through the Scheduled Maintenance manual that came with the owners manual. After many years of people saying the Timing Belt needs replacing at 80 or 90k miles, this is first time I have seen documentation from Toyota saying you may Not actually need...
  15. Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    This thread should be one-stop shopping for any working on the timing belt or coolant on a Toyota/Lexus 1MZ-FE motor. It contains links to info already written in better or greater detail rather than repeating it here. 1MZ-FE Carnage: Timing Belt & Coolant, A Cautionary Tale The patient, a...
  16. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hey All, [SIZE="4"] Here's some pictures of the valve cover/spark plugs and a timing belt job I did on my 2004 XLE V6 with about 118K on it. This is the first timing belt job this car has had. Valve cover gasket was done at around 52K. This job was done over a course of almost a month...
  17. Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    When my first gen avalon threw the code I got a new gas cap, then I got a new Toyota brand gas cap. Then I checked all vacuum valves and tubing. Then I installed a new charcoal cannister. Sound familiar ? I then drove with the check engine light on for several months after all that because...
  18. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hey All, Yes... I know, another timing belt question. I'm planning to do a timing belt on a Kentucky 4-Vin 5SFE 1997 LE I4 Camry soon. The timing belt flutter is starting to get really bad. It's also way past due for the timing belt. It's at about 180K IIRC... I guess this is also more of a...
  19. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I have the engine out on my 1993 Camry. (5S-FE) A previous person left the crankshaft bolt ultra tight, and I wanted to remove the crank pulley to replace the timing belt. I couldn't hold the crank shaft enough to break the bolt loose. Three different impact guns did nothing. Torch heat &...
  20. Highlander 1st Gen - Hybrid (XU20/2005-2007)
    Quick background.... 6 weeks ago I changed the timing belt on my wife's new to us 2007 Highlander Hybrid (80,000 miles). This was my first big project on the car or any hybrid for that matter. I ran in to some snags along the way, but ultimately finished the job and fired it up. During the...
