I can get you a diagram on monday but it goes from the alternator to the power steering pump then around the tensioner pulley then around the crank pulley then to the a/c compressor then pull on the tensioner to give you some slack and slip it on the waterpump.I hope that helps.Let me know if you still need the diagram

I just changed my oil on my RAV4 V6 and the first thing is you are not looking for the regular canister but a oil housing like on the old farm tractors. You just replace the inside filter cartridge. The canister is in front on the engine on the passenger side. Use a 3/8 socket to open the bottom and drain. Next use a oil filter cap wrench to remove the housing. Actully this is a less messy than my chevy and more "green."

If all other parts were were new this would be true, however as things wear, pullys and other parts insdie the timing cover can shorten the life of the belt. If he looked and saw something and he thought it need to be changed then let him change it and ask him why. It may need a new pully to make the belt last longer. On some engines there are things that wear the belt out the older they get. Also factory belts tend to last longer than after market, some people have the cheep belt installed to save money but in the end they pay to replace the belt sooner. Hope this helps, alwasy ask you mechanic why he is doing it. If he does not give you a reason then go somewhere else.

SOURCE: Timing chain or belt?
The 2002-2006 Camry received the next generation 2.4L 4-cylinder engine (model 2AZ-FE), which combines decent power with excellent fuel economy. This engine does not have a timing belt, it has a chain that does not need to be replaced.
The second choice is very smooth and powerful 3.0-liter 24-valve all-aluminum V6 engine.
Starting from 2004, the 3.3-liter V6 DOHC VVT-i engine is available on SE V6 model.
Both, the 3.0L and 3.3L V6 engines have a timing belt that must be replaced at certain interval
