SOURCE: 1997 rav4 fuel filter location?
i just got done replacing my fuel filter on my 1997 rav4 and i didnt need any special tools. sockets and wrenches. no leaks and everything is fine. you just need patience and descent skills with tools.

Zero tolerance means the valves may have hit the piston when the timing belt broke. I would suggest doing a cylinder leakage test to see if the valves are bent or not. If the valves are not bent then you can replace the belt and everything will be ok. If there are bent valves then the cylinder heads will need to be removed and repaired.

Both the 4 and 6 cyl. engines in this car have belts. The 4's don't last as long because they lack a tensioner and get noisy. Toyotas for the most part do not get hurt when the belt breaks. non interference engines...nice huh?

there are no adjustments that you can do. a dealer or someone that specializes in toyota is the only ones that can/should do an adj for you. If that really is the case.

You will have a timing belt on your vehicle that is usually replaced along with the water pump. At 100K miles i would do the following: 1. Timing Belt and Water pump replacement and Serpentine Drive Belt replacement. I suggest replacing all the cooling system hoses, replace the thermostat & radiator cap and flush the radiator since the cooing system will be drained and fill with new coolant/water mixture. 2. Check the motor mounts and replace if necessary. 3. Replace the spark plugs and wires. 3. Check the cv joints for broken or cracked boots and replace if necessary. 4.Have the transmission/transaxle serviced and filled with new transmission fluid. (This should be done every 30k miles) 5. I also suggest oil and filter replacement, air filter replacement, have the brakes checked and the tires rotated. It is a good idea to have the thottle body cleaned and the fuel filter replaced also. All of these should be done if they have not been done already. I believe in preventative maintenance and if you can catch problems before they get too serious you can save yourself a lot of time and money. I hope this helps. Please rate me on my answer.
