    After a repair, there are so many items that can cause a noise that it's unlikely that anyone could guess what it is (need to be there and listen) But, you have done the right thing in not driving it and if the shop is reliable, they will find out what the problem is. Most times it turns out to be something minor...hope in your case it is!!!

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.

Required maintenance for the 2005 kia spectra at 57,000 miles


Not sure if it helps you but the manufacturer suggests changing your timing belt around 60,000 miles. I did this at 80k and bought a kit which included a tensioner replacement. Labor intensive but if you don't do this you run the risk of damaging your engine to the point of having to replace it altogether.(if your timing belt should fail) When your timing belt fails your pistons can damage valves which may be left open due to the camshaft not being spun by the timing belt.Hope this helps a bit.... I now have enjoyed 122k miles of trouble free motoring in my 05 spectra..
