Question about 1995 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

95 toyota 2.2 cylinder 4 cylinder timing belt life

First one was done at 60,000 miles and oil is always changed at 3,000 miles and we are gentle drivers.
Its now showing 121,000 and we wonder if we can safely streach it a bit longer and not risk it snapping.
Also, our thermostat is stuck open and it doesnt heat up much in the cold.
That prob hurts mileage and creates carbon? We want to do both at same time

The belt can last more than 60,000 miles but just to be on the safe side you should replace as soon a possible. Some vehicles like the Acura Legend timing belt is guaranteed for 90,000, however remember if there are oil leaking from any seal inside the cover the belt may break. Also if the water pump is leaking that may also shorten the life of the belt. You should change the belt , tensioner seals and water pump when you do this job. You may have it for another 100,00 miles.

Prolly helps mileage and reduces carbon... but system has its design to work hotter than you are running it ...*alas the smog wizards......you didnt hear it from me but yes you can stretch the timing belt a little assuming you changed it to a quality aftermarket or dealer part...(they have built in life expectancy though, even if no adverse heat or oil or other compromising conditions may have existed during its life....good luck

I have a 1998 6 cylinder toyota camry that just 2 days ago i heard a pop while driving and the rpm's where at 3 then took a long time to get to 2. Ran it like that till got to a gas station when it...


I dont think its the motor but it sounds like maybe something inside the timing belt let go, when you do the timing belt did you replace the tensioner and pulley, if not then maybe one of the idler pulleys for the belt went bad, or it may just be a bad ignition coil or fuel pump. i would have the computer scanned first to see if there are any codes. the codes are very helpful as they will tell you if something has failed like a coil. 140,000 miles is not alot for a camry and i dont think its a bad engine. good day.

No problem just need advice. Have Moms 1998 toyota camry. 30,000 miles. Should I change the timing belt because of age? Same situation with Dads 2wd 1998 4runner 60,000 miles. They will now be driven more.


No way. They usually don't wear until 100,000 miles. Some last for the life of the vehicle. I would change around this time. You should be good my friend.

I am looking to buy a 2002 4 cyl Highlander with 97,000 miles. What has to be done at 100,000 mikes? Timing Belt?


Your timing belt should have been done at 60,000, make sure it has, ask the owner if you can. If not, Get it done. I wouldn't risk it. While you have the front of the engine off, replace the belt tensioner and the water pump. Are you sure this has a belt? If it has a chain, don't worry about, just change the oil. Check the belts, fluids, might change the filter in the tranny. And fill up the battery. Should be OK.

Unknown millage on timing belt 152000


The interval for replacement is 60,000 miles on that model.
If you do not know the last time it was changed, it would be a good idea to do it so you do not risk getting stranded.

The engine is NOT an interference engine, so the engine will not be damaged if the belt breaks; you will just need a tow truck to get it somewhere to install a new belt.

Recommended service at 60,000 miles??


Hello at 60,000 miles you should have all of the following done.
1) Have you transmission flushed completely
2) change your fuel filter
3) oil and filter change
4) inspect your brakes and rotate your tires
5) replace air filter if needed
6) clean your injectors by pressure
7) have your suspension check
8) have your belts inspected
9) if your differential is not leaking. leave it alone due to age.
10 have your coolant flushed out.

If you had any of the following done recently then subtract from the list.
this may be costly so you may want to do little by little unless you can have it done all at once.
