Will my broken power steering belt cause my 1987 toyota camry from starting. I cannot start my 1987 toyota camry and found out that the belt to the power steering is broken. Is this causing my toyota from turning over?

No your p/s belt just takes is spun by the crank shaft. if its not making noise when you turn the key, then you should check the fuses under the dash and under the hood for ign one of those might be bad.

I want to see how to fix my timing belt engine.....


A 2.2L engine? You only have the one timing belt, which drives the camshafts, oil pump and water pump. The other belt(s) are drive belts for A/C, power steering, alternator etc.
To see if it is broken, lift the distributor cap a little and see if its shaft turns when the engine is cranked. If it does, something else is the cause. See here p25

1987 Toyota Camry. Idle doesn't drop. Stays very high. No clue why. Also goes through a lot of gas and found out muffler and catalytic converter aren't hooked up. Ideas of where to start?


check your vacume hoses and if iyt has an idle controll valve that is off of the air intake. that should be the only things that would effect it

Check the power steering fluid levels. Also the pump may need replacing if it isn't delivering enough hydraulic pressure to the steering box. Be sure to lube all the steering components on the chassis if possible.

I own an 1987 Toyota Camry with 91,000 miles. I tried to start it and it sounds like the bottom of the engine is turning and the top is not....I'm thinking it's the timing belt. What type of valve...


This is not an interference engine. If the belt is broken, you'll just need to reinstall the belt correctly and the engine will be fine.

I just replaced the fuel pump on my 1987 toyota camry and it is still not delivering gas to start the vehicle can it be the fuel pump relay?


You bet.

Also check the timing belt. If the distributor is not turing the fuel pump also will not run.

Hope this tip helps.

Power steering belt on 1991 toyota camry


Locate the idler pulley. Loosen the nut in the center of the idler pulley. Then loosen the bolt that protrudes from the back of the pulley. This will let the belt go slack.

Steering wheel hard to turn on my 1989 toyota camry


power steering belt broken or fell off, or the pump is out of oil. The pump is down on the right hand side (passenger) between the fire wall and the engine. You should be able to see if the belt is still on. Check the resevoir for oil. It is on the same side. It's a little plastic pot with a dipstick. Let me know how you make out.
