This is not simple and requires a technician with the proper knowledge. Modern engines are non interference which means with the timing improperly set you can severly damage the engine. If the engine has not been damged already I would have the vehicle towed to someone who could repair it. Odds are if the timing is off and the engine wont crank the head has already been damaged.

    jonesja3...I think you may be mistaken about the meaning of non-interference engines. A non-interference WILL NOT be damaged if the timing is off or the belt breaks. Only the interference engines could possibly be damaged. They don't always get damaged. I had a 1993 Honda Accord that had a timing belt break while I was driving and my local garage said they wouldn't touch it because it had an interference engine. I replaced both timing belts myself and she fired right up with no valve train damage. Just got lucky!

My 1998 Toyota Avalon XLS squeals loadly when I start the engine and the fan is on in the car. I turn of the fan and it stops. After driving I turn the fan back on and don't get the squeal anym

Almost certainly one or more of the drive belts (not the timing belt) on the engine needs an increase in tension. It may tell you about this in the owner's handbook.

If not you can either ask a mechanic to do this straightforward job for you, or try it yourself. You can download a zipped service manual from here

and look these belts up in the charging section and steering section.

Disconnect the battery before starting the job! Your power cable from the alternator will be disconnected and could potentially ground out if your battery is not disconnected!

  1. REMOVE DRIVE BELT Loosen the pivot bolt, adjusting lock bolt and adjusting bolt, and remove the drive belt.

    1. Disconnect the generator connector.
    2. Remove the nut, and disconnect the generator wire.
    3. Disconnect the wire harness from the clip, unplug.

How do you change the alternator belt on a 2002 toyota avalon xls

There are two bolts on the alternator:
One holds it in position on a rail to adjust belt tension and the other mounts it to a brace. Loosen both of these and angle the alternator to release the belt tension and remove the belt. Put the new one on and reverse your removal technique. You want the belt taut, but not tight. If it squeals when it's running, just adjust the tension to make it a little bit tighter.
