  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. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    I installed a new timing belt kit. Thought the cam gears were synced up correctly with the crankshaft pulley on 0 degrees, but after releasing the tensioner, the right camshaft timing pulley is two teeth behind. Is it possible to just remove the tensioner (with the belt held in the correct place...

    Hi all, seeking some advice and any input would be greatly appreciated. Please find attached short clip below. Car/model: 1991 Toyota Camry SV21 - Australia Problem: Car bogs down and makes a whining noise after I replaced timing belt and water pump. What I think: I've over-tensioned the...
  4. 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...
  5. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    while driving at 35MPH-ish it started to slow down and would not accelerate. it "chugged along" at 15MPH-ish while i tried to find a safe pull off spot, till it came to a complete stop and would not move. I didn't push it hard but all the electrical was still working. I turned it off to rest for...

  7. 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...
  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. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...

    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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
