  1. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Recently did the timing chain tensioner, as it was dripping down the back of the engine. The wife drove it for just over a week, today mentioned it keeps making noise @ 1500-1800rpm. Pulled the valve cover off to verify timing, only to notice wear on the teeth of both intake and exhaust cam...

  3. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hello everyone Today, I reinstalled the timing chain tensioner, replacing a counterfeit one for one from the dealer. After spinning the crank and hearing the necessary clicks, I decided to spin the crank more, just in case. This is the noise I was greeted with: Do not confuse my ratcheting...

    So my tensioner pulley was loosen without me realizing and when I went to remove the harmonic balancer the cam and balancer (crankshaft) got misaligned. Now I have the timing belt off and the harmonic balancer off. I went to change the water pump (that’s done) but now I gotta put everything...

    So I'm changing the water pump off my 99 Camry, over heating and this was diagnosed as the issue. When I get the harmonic balancer, the bolt was on there pretty good. Had to buy ridgid 1/2 impact wrench to get that sucker off. In the process, my cam and balancer markers got unaligned. How would...
  7. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hello fellow 1ZZ-FE owners! Could someone help me identify what to look for to check the timing on the cams and the crank against one another? I know to crank the engine until its TDC on #1 cylinder, that will show the camshaft timing marks at 3 o'clock position for exhaust and 9 o'clock for...

    My corolla is a 1996 automatic 1.6L 4A-FE. It started bucking and losing power at high speeds The timing is about 40 degrees advanced at idle, according to a check with a timing light and the ECU (using one of those OBDII code readers). It starts up, idles fast (around 1500rpm) and sounds...

    I have a timing issue on my 2010 Sequoia (Engine 3UR-FE 5.7L) and hope I can get some advice about whether this repair is urgent. The check engine light keeps coming on with code P0014 (camshaft position B timing over advanced). The Toyota dealership service says it “needs cam gear and...

  13. Tacoma 1st Generation (1995.5–2004)
    Tomorrow I'll be diagnosing a 2001 Toyota Tacoma with a 2.7 that has no start issue after over heating. Owner says that they were driving along, people trying to get his attention about the smoke/steam but he's old so he didn't notice. Said he pulled over and it died right there, hasn't...

    Hello all. I have a 96 camry 4 cyl 2.2. I recently replaced the head gasket and got everything back together and now the vehicle runs fine. The question is, where is the timing mark on the pulley supposed to be at idle? Mine is at 5. The only reason I ask is because it seems to run slightly...

    Hi y'all! My 1984 Tercel (Wagon 2wd) failed CA smog recently with high NO levels. I replaced the Oxygen sensor and spark plugs, and added a new air filter. While looking for the EGR, I accidentally altered the timing, which I proceeded to put back into spec (5 deg. with vacuum advance...

    I'm about to replace the distributor on my 1996 4 cylinder due to the oil leaks (and the 327k miles). I notice the new distributor (Richporter / Spectra TY49) only has one circular bolt hole, no adjustment slot. Looking at the one on the car, I'm not seeing an adjuster plate, unless there's...
  18. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Got an oil change yesterday and the dealer noticed a small oil leak from the timing cover on my '10 Corolla w/ 71k. Of course they could reseal it for $450. After further investigation, it looks like it is actually coming from the timing chain tensioner. I have seen on the 9th gen this is a...
  19. Sequoia Forum
    Hi All, Is it possible to adjust the timing of an 03 Sequoia? I recently had ignition coil(s) crap out, and it took a few weeks to get the money for coils. Unfortunately, we couldn't keep the Sequoia at bay as we needed to work and go to school. So I think I threw the timing off a tad. In the...
