SOURCE: 2001 Toyota camry 2.2 L 4 cyl engine timming belt replacement

The 2001 Camry 2.2 has a timing belt.
Recommended change interval is 90,000 miles.
There is no good reason for putting the replacement off, as the belt may be stretched slightly when it nears the rec replace interval, and your mileage may suffer because the engine is not in proper "time".
If the belt jumps time or breaks, it will NOT damage the valves.

It might leave you stranded. Because without the alternator. which I think is your problem your battery will run down in a very short time. Even if you had a new battery.Check the belt first as Toyota Ed suggested. If it's good, and not broken. Replace the alternator and if you have to, the battery also. One could affect the other.

SOURCE: My Audi a6 has 75 000 miles, what are the major maintenance

find a SPECIALIZED Audi mechanic with his own / family business ( NOOOO DEALERS !!!!!!) which may give 3 references - customers. After that, the only thing you should care would be the regular oil service. Splendid car, mine drove like a dream until the dealership f****d its engine.

My 2000 T 4Runner has 200,000 miles on it. Should I start looking for a newer one? It still runs very well, although it's had a few problems. Is $16,000 a good price for 2004 4Runner V8 with 90,000 miles...

It is really your choice but your 4Runner is capable of allot more miles with good maintenance. If your looking to save money the V8 4Runner in not a good option.

Have 84k miles and am wondering when do I need to replace the spark plugs and wires, timing belt (replaced last at 45k) and any other preventative maintainace? Any information will be helpful. Thanks for...

Plugs and wires at 50,000 miles, the timing belt should last 100,000 miles. I am curious why the first one was replaced at 45,000? I am thinking you may have replaced the serpintine belt.

Is the 2003 Kia Sephia engine 0 tolerence, will the valve be bent if the timing belt breaks?

The timing belt should be replaced to avoid the possibility of bent valves if the belt fails. This is normally performed as preventative maintenance when the vehicle has approximately 100,000 miles. However, to reassure Kia owners, I drove my own 2003 Kia Spectra 170,000 miles without performing this maintenance so I can attest to the durability of the factory belt.

It is a gamble to attempt to go beyond the normal service life of the timing belt.

2003 4Runner 100,000 miles

If you want low maintenance and long term reliability then you need to find something with less miles and a warranty. Yes, the motor and trans will last well over 200k if maintained properly but all the little parts that make it all happen can pick away at you. You can't spend 10g and expect a 30g truck.

Toyota 4 Runner maintenance at 60,000 miles

The time on yours more than miles affects the coolant, it should be changed every 5 years or 100,000 miles.
