Timing Belt Replacement
1.Install No. 2 idler pulley (if removed). Install and tighten bolt to
specification. Ensure idler pulley is clean and rotates smoothly.
2.Install No. 1 idler pulley and tension spring (if removed). Pry No. 1
idler pulley away from timing belt area as far as possible. Temporarily
tighten No. 1 idler pulley bolt. Ensure idler pulley is clean and rotates
3.Using crankshaft pulley bolt, rotate crankshaft so timing mark on
crankshaft sprocket aligns with timing mark on oil pump housing. See. This
will position keyway in crankshaft sprocket at 12 o'clock position.
CAUTION:If reusing timing belt, ensure reference marks on timing belt align
with reference marks placed on crankshaft and camshaft sprockets. Ensure
timing belt is installed in original direction of rotation.
4.Ensure all sprockets and idler pulleys are clean. Install timing belt on
crankshaft sprocket, oil pump sprocket, No. 1 idler pulley, and then No. 2
idler pulley in sequence.
5.Install timing belt guide with cupped side away from crankshaft sprocket
and flat side toward timing belt. Install No. 1 timing belt cover and new
6.Align crankshaft pulley key groove with key in crankshaft. Install
crankshaft pulley. Install and tighten crankshaft pulley bolt to
7.Rotate crankshaft clockwise so cylinder No. 1 is at TDC on compression
stroke. Ensure timing mark on crankshaft pulley aligns with mark on No. 1
timing belt cover. If reusing timing belt, ensure reference mark on timing
belt aligns with upper edge of No. 1 timing belt cover.
8.Rotate camshaft, and align hole in camshaft sprocket with alignment mark
on camshaft bearing cap. Install timing belt on camshaft sprocket. If
reusing timing belt, ensure reference mark on timing belt aligns with the
reference mark on camshaft sprocket. Ensure tension exists on timing belt
between the crankshaft and camshaft sprockets.
CAUTION:DO NOT rotate crankshaft counterclockwise, as viewed from timing
belt end of engine.
9.Loosen No. 1 idler pulley bolt 1/2 turn. Rotate crankshaft pulley 2 full
revolutions clockwise from TDC to TDC. 10.Ensure timing mark on crankshaft
pulley aligns with "0" mark on No. 1 timing belt cover, and hole
in camshaft sprocket aligns with alignment mark on camshaft bearing cap. If
timing marks are not aligned, remove timing belt and reinstall. 11.Rotate
crankshaft clockwise 1 and 7/8 revolutions and align crankshaft pulley mark
with 45-degree Before Top Dead Center (BTDC) mark on No. 1 timing belt
12.Tighten No. 1 idler pulley bolt to specification. Install No. 2 timing
belt cover and gaskets. Install and tighten spark plugs to specification.
13.To install remaining components, reverse removal procedure. Install all
bolts/nuts on right (timing belt side) engine mount before tightening to
14.On Camry, when installing control rod and bracket on strut tower and
right (timing belt side engine mount, tighten bolts to specification in
2.2 4 cylinder Toyota Camry oil pump seal
A short video to show the oil pump on a 1998 Camry and where that mystery
lower oil leak you have is coming from. I strongly suggest you do this at
the same time you do the timing belt since it has to come off anyway, The
oil pump shaft seal was replaced at the same time, just lock the gear in a
vice with a couple layers of rag to protect it, then remove the 12mm nut,
remove the sprocket, r&r seal, lube it, put the nut back on with some
locktite, snug down the nut.
Toyota Camry Large Oil Leak
Watch a video of the repair here:
Another Camry with a bad oil pump drive seal, you can see just how bad the
Toyota Oil Pan Gasket Reseal
Some techs fail to locate the sourse of the oil pan leak, usually is the
t-chain cover or a slapy oil chage job, when the oil filter is spin to be
removed splashoil around the oil pan then when the car is moving fast that
oil goes around the oil pan.
Toyota Engine Oil Sludge: Another Dangerous Defect?
IMPORTANT: Go to http://www.uc2.blogspot.com to find out the latest Toyota
news. Check out the Toyota engine oil sludge petition at
http://www.petitiononline.com/TMC2003/petition.html. Documention is
essential. Toyota has claimed that only 3,200 owners have complained about
the problem, but the online Toyota owner petition already has 3,200+
signatories. The NHTSA database sits and collects dust as it says this
engine problem is not safety-related. Let it know if the engine failure
compromised the safety of you or your family! Some failures have occurred
on major highways!
In light of the current spotlight on Toyota regarding the deadly sudden
unintended acceleration, the public needs to know about the organized
"Toyota Owners Unite for Resolution" online group. These owners tried to
go through the normal complaint channels to no avail. Toyota knows this.
The owners have been blamed for this serious engine malady. Toyota
continues to stonewall Toyota owners when engine sludge appears. This is
The TOUR group wonders if the same treatment may have been given to the SUA
group. What can the victims of SUA (Sudden Unintended Acceleration) add in
reflecting on Toyota's actions? Have they, too, been stonewalled for years
about this problem? Is there more information that needs to come from
these Toyota owners? If so, when will their stories be told in the public
Are there other problems, such as the Sienna "sticking" sliding doors, the
ABS brake failures in light snow or rain conditions, the drifting/pulling
steering, the premature tire wear, the transmission failures, etc., that
have brought Toyota owners together online? Have Toyota proponents
minimized the situation or personally attacked the messenger online?
What has been the NHTSA reaction? Has it been proactive and investigated
fully all safety-related complaints? Or, has it dragged its feet along
with Toyota in responding to potentially deadly situations? Does the
public just assume that everything possible is being done as promptly as
possible? Or, has it finally realized that too often it is the automaker
that gets the best treatment from the NHTSA while the vehicle owner gets
let down AND footing the bill on several levels?
When will the auto consumers (consumers in general) get the protection they
need? Will the current administration strengthen the consumer protection
laws and give the consumer agencies the support that they need to
adequately be our "watchdogs?" Why is it that right now the consumer must
be forced to take matters into his/her own hands in order to seek justice?
This is not right!
