Question about 2000 Toyota Camry Solara
I went to the dealership where I got my car because I was having car problems and they said that there were several things that needed to be done. The timing belt, radiator, and water pump needed replacing. They wanted to charge over $1000.00 to do the job and I could not believe it. My dad is planning on doing the job because he always works on his cars and never lets anyone else touch them. What is your opinion concerning the timing belt? That is my main concern because I know it is a meticulous job and is crucial to the function of the car when replacing. I've been reading up online but have yet to find anything on the make and model of my car. I just don't want to let someone do the job who charges through the roof because it is such a tedious process when my dad could do the job with no labor charges.
It's not the easiest belt to do, I think it has the grenade style hydraulic tensioner, which is not a big deal if you know how to reload them, but if he's done timing belts before, it should all go OK if he takes his time. If you need info on the tensioner or anything else, just let me know. I would suggest registering the car for free at autozone, I'm pretty sure they have a manual for this job/car available. Also, check ebay for parts, some sellers have timing belt kits that include pumps....very cheap!
