Re: fluids etc...how often to change
My message doesn't spify what type of vehicle, so I'll say that if the water pump belt is different from the timing belt, them about 15000 miles for water pump, and 30,000 miles for timing belt. If your system is drive by a serpentine belt, then changing just one belt will solve your problem. Automatic transmission fluid should be about every 15,000 miles, and be sure to change the filter in the tranny at the same time. If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so. Bill ASE Master Technician

you probable skipped you're 90.000 major service point 30.000 60.000 90.000 platinum plugs are gone at 100.000 , ready...get you're wallet out.. trans filter service. Flush change all fluids ..brake coolant etc.... rear brakes are done unless replaced..check all brakes..plug wires drive axle fluid. Thermostat... cheep part very impotant. timing belt if it has one .. if it brakes it could smash valves or shut you down..when you do timing belt better do water pump it is usauly driven by timing belt and check all belt drive pullys
REPLACE SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES, REPLACE DISTRIBUTOR CAP AND ROTOR. NEED CHANGE ENGINE OIL AND OIL FILTER.YOU NEED CHANGE TIMING BELT HAS TO BE CHANGED EVERY 60000 MILES TIMING BELT CHANGING TIME OVER DUE.REPLACE WATER PUMP WHEN YOU REPLACE TIMING BELT BECAUSE TIMING COVER HAS TO BE REMOVED WHEN YOU REPLACE WATER PUMP ALSO GET BOTH DONE SAVE TIME AND MONEY.CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER.REPLACE FUEL FILTER AND AIR FILTER.FLUSH COOLANT SYSTEM REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP HAVE GARAGE FLUSH OUT BRAKE SYSTEM ADD NEW BRAKE FLUID.INSPECT BRAKES HOSES CHECK FRONT BRAKES PADS AND CHECK INSIDE CALIPER FOR LEAKING SEALS CHECK REAR DRUM BRAKE SHOES CHECK FOR LEAKING WHEEL CYLINDER SEALS.CHECK BALL JOINTS AND STEERING LINKAGE SEALS.CHECK DRIVE BELT OR BELTS.CHECK POWER STEERING FLUID LOOK OLD DIRTY HAVE GARAGE CHANGE POWER STEERING FLUID.ALL THOSE THINGS HAS TO BE CHECK AND DONE IF LAST OWNER NEGLECT DID NOT TAKE CARE OF VECHICLE.ITS GOING TO BE A EXPENSIVE COST. JUST DO A LITTLE AT A TIME.THE TIMING BELT WOULD BE MY WORRY IF IT BREAKS ENGINE IS DONE.I WOULD REPLACE WATER PUMP AND TIMING BELT FIRST WOULD DRIVE MUCH UNTIL THATS FIX.
The power steering pump is located in line with the rest of the belt driven units (alternator , water pump and AC compressor). It has a cap on it to check the fluid level... so should be easy to spot.
DO NOT reach into the belt area while the engine is running!!
The transmission fluid should be checked with the engine completely warmed up and running. The fluid should be within the parramiters of the cross hatching on the dip stick.
do not overfill!! too much trans fluid is as bad as not enough...
Hello- Basic maintenance on your CL consists of either normal or scheduled. Normal is air filter/oil/fluids/plugs/brakes/tires, etc. Scheduled service is 90/180/270k miles---- Timing belt/water pump/tensioner/thermostat/coolant/belts/trans oil/brake fluid. Parts for 90k are about 300$.- Buy timing belt/water pump/tensioner from Acura. Use only NGK plugs. Let me know if this info helps- have more if you need it.- Thanks- ED
That is about 120, 000 miles, if you have not done already, you should change the timimg belt and while you are doing that it is a good idea to replace the water pump. You could change your transmission oil but not critical.
I am a long time owner of several Camreys
ECM CLEANED???? that sounds like some scam. It will need the timing belt replaced, and the water pump at the same time. You dont mention what engine and mileage? But if the water pump leaks, get it all done. Find a Independent Shop that works on Toyota.
Lubricant may not resolve it sounds like it could be your water pump froze up. Look to see if it is turning. Even if it turns it still could be bad.Usally the first sign of it going bad. Stop by your local auto parts store to see if they agree.
90000 km service includes changing.spark plugs,oil and oil filter,gearbox fluid,brake fluid ,air filter and fuel filter if needed,a full safty inspection.and the most important timing belt,and while your doing the timing belt you should do the water pump.
