I have an 05 TB. I have replaced the idler pulley twice in the three years I owned it. Cheap and quick fix. Call your dealer and get the part. Problem is that the part comes with the whole bracket. Take the pulley of the new part and put it on the existing bracket already on your vehicle. 30 minute fix.

SOURCE: noisey drive belt, possibly alternator, belt

sounds like idler bearings but you have to release the tension to check,Also you can check the rest of the pulleys also at this time. I dont think you have to drop the engine.

Replacing water pump


I just recently did this on my wife's car. I youtube'd it and they gave me a bunch of crap about draining the radiator first, I could seem to find the plug they kept referring to so I just went ahead and straight took the water pump off. It made a mess but saved a lot of time, and I didn't mind the mess to begin with.

If your engine is mounted the same you'll actually have to put a jack under the engine and lift up on it in order to get the serpentine belt on it. (If you have to replace the belt like we did, if not disregard this.)

Replacing the water pump was pretty straight forward easy take off put on job with a mess of coolant.

How can i tell if my waterpump is bad? shut the car off and came out later to anti freeze in the driveway


If it's leaking that bad, open the hood take off radiator cap and fill with water (without making a mess and spilling a bunch. Then simply watch for where the leak is at, if it's leaking from a hose, the radiator, or from around the area where the belt is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment. If it's leaking from the passenger side around the belt area your water pump is the most common cause. They are made so when the bearing wears out around the shaft the pulley bolts, it has what are called weep holes and the water just runs out to tell you to replace the water pump.

I replced my radiator & thermostat and my car is still overheating. Toyota Camry 1992, help


water pump may be bad. or you may have a head gasket leaking. If it perks over out of the radiator before it really hot thats a sign you have a head gasket issue. A shop can tell you for sure with a smog machine. If you have gas in your water the smog machine will read it.

Overheating after 45min-1 hour of driving


HI RickyGorbett! The first place that I would look is the Fan. Check the Fan Clutch and make sure that it is Engaging. Replace that Thermostat, You could actually have a Clogged Radiator, If you think it might be you will need to Remove the Radiator and take it to a Radiator Shop and Have it Rodded and Dipped. Let me know what you find out! Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help that I can get! Thanks!
