You're getting all this done at Goodyear? I hope you're dealing with somebody you trust, not just some chain store...
:cockblockdysk8forlife said:sounds about right, i just payed about 1500 at toyota for timing belt, water pump, trans pan gasket, a slew of other gaskets and starter contacts. it basically sucks:disappoin
thanks. they checked that too and said it was fine...I know for a fact my front mount is shot as a mechanic at my old job in NY told me so, and so is my dogbone (it's cracked), but not sure about the rear mount. If they do fix all this and it still clunks i'll burn that fucker down!aznstylez said:you might want to check your struts and struts mount first by pushing up and down on the car to see if you hear any clucking sound since this happend before on my dad's 99'avalon. The strut mount was found to be messed up. My 01'avalon front strut went out before and it had a clucking sound. My link stabilizer went bad yesterday and it made a clunking sound. hope you check all this first. good luck.
I actually replaced my dogbone mount with an ebay one like 5-6 months ago and it's beginning to crack again.swegyptian said:If you have them do that stuff, skip the dogbone. You can buy it on ebay for $25, and install it in about 5 minutes.
Not sure how much it moves, i'll check tomorrow.Eye8Pussies said:not too sure about the cost of the front and rear mounts, though the labor charge for both does sound about right :thumbup:
but do as sweptian says and either go buy a dogbone mount yourself and install it, or take out your old one, polyurethane it up and then reinstall it for even better than stock vibration handling
also though, just at thought, how much does your engine move when your press down the throttle while the car's in park? for your car to be making clunking sounds, your mounts must be neaer dead and have so much movement that your engine is hitting something or other....
and timing belt and waterpump? on a 4banger?
should only be about $300USD for all belts and labor then + $80 for a waterpump
you're getting ripped off to hell
you can problaby do that at the dealership for under 500
I would go get a second opinion on all of this if I were you- sounds like they may be talking out of their asses- your mounts really shouldn't be going at 66K either
checked today...it rocks like 1/4"...maybe 1/2" but thats probably pushing it!Eye8Pussies said:how much does your engine move when your press down the throttle while the car's in park? for your car to be making clunking sounds, your mounts must be neaer dead and have so much movement that your engine is hitting something or other....
yeah your right kinda figured that....guess i'll just have them do the front/rear mounts and i'll do the dogbone myself...and wait and find a cheaper price to get the other job done.Eye8Pussies said:they're probablyb okay
but good luck getting the shop to install them for you then
even if they do, they won't warrantee your work, since if anything happens, they'll just blame it on parts that aren't theirs
if you're worried, you may as well pay the extra hundred bucks and have them pick up the mounts for you, and then see if you can negotiate abit on the final price, then go else where for your timing belt, since the two jobs are different anyway
Thats whats i've heard but don't they recommend you get it done at like 60k?Kevs Toy said:You'er at 66k? If so, timing belt doesnt need to be done till 90k if you really want to wait.
Durrby said:Timing Belt/Waterpump Kit
would this apply since they replaced the front right drive axle where the clunk is coming from already? I'm gonna try and get the job done tomorrow morning. I'll try what you said but either way my mounts are still shot regardless.Big Top Gt said:Have you checked to see if the U Joints in the drive shaft aren't the culprit?
Put the car in D with the Emergency Brake fully engauged. Put the car in drive and give it a little gas so it loads the drive train. (don't actually move the car. Just rock it a little.)
Put it in reverse and do the same thing a few times.
If the u joint is bad in the drive shaft you'll get a hard *knock* sound, almost like someone's rapping their knuckles on the floor of the car.
It's a $50 dollar fix.
yea figured it was a good price, just don't know if it's a quality kit though. either way i'm gonna hold off on that job for a while since i have the time.skewe said:good price for the kit dude.
went for toyota water pump and that alone is almost the ebay price for the kit
