    Hello everyone! I just watched a video about counterfeit parts on YT. Now I am staring at a box that once contained a timing chain tensioner that I ordered from Amazon some 9 months ago. I went to check the forums for the part number that are commonly listed and the one I have here DOESNT...

    Just bought it, 140k, 2AZ-FE. Getting a clacking noise in the vicinity below the exhaust camshaft sprocket, per my stethoscope. Clacking disappears if engine is accelerating under load or decelerating. Engine runs fine, no CELs. Checked the valve clearances, replaced the chain tensioner and VVT...

    Hello all, I am thinking of buying a 2010 Camry SE V6 with the 3.5L engine with about 166,000 kms on it. Is there anything I should be looking out for? I have previously owned many Camry's and the last one I owned was a 2008 Camry SE with the 2.4L engine. That car developed an oil burning...

    Hi all My dad is working on his car since his car was overheating without the temperature gauge letting him know. That also lead to the spark plug wires melting. Any how he wants to find out the TDC for his previa which I can't find any real info on. Been on the web for hours no real luck...

    Has anyone puchased a replacement engine online? I have a 2005 Avalon that threw a vvt secondary chain off of bank 1 (I think, it's closest to the firewall) and blew a hole through my valve cover. Looked into repairing but to many unknowns with possible other damage. Looking to buy a motor...

    I have a 2009 Corolla XLE with 207,000 miles on it. For the past few thousand miles, the car has developed a tick when the engine is under load. It cannot be heard when the transmission is in Neutral. The car runs fine at driving speeds, but often idles rough and even dies at stop signs. A...

    I have read manuals, posts and watched videos on replacing timing chains on the 22RE's. Many say to remove the cylinder head and others say it can be done with it in place. I did not see nor read anything about having the head checked or resurfaced in any of the manuals/posts or videos? ...I...

    Replaced my 20r with a new LKQ long block. Came with new timing chain which rattles. The 20r has double timing chain. Timing chain tensioner on the drivers side maybe the culprit. Mechanic says 3 year unlimited mileage warrantee from LKQ and is adamant about my concerns with the noise. My...

  18. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    I've got a 2002 Corolla with a 1.8 liter 1zzfe engine. It had the disappearing oil problem. I changed the rings and drilled some extra oil drain holes, 4 per piston, in the 3rd ring groove. The rings were seized and the factory drain holes where blocked by varnish. I messed up the timing...

    I have a 1987 toyota pickup (22r manual 4WD) I am going to do the timing kit replacement: gears, chain, guides, tensioner, etc. I have heard that you need to take off the head to get to the gears and chain, and I've also heard that you don't need to.
