Question about 1989 Toyota Camry
I replaced the timing belt, how do I get the gears to Top Dead Center? How will I know when I get it to top dead center? If that doesnt work, but it sounds like its turning over, but still not starting, then what do I do?
Well bad news to tell you , first off, you have proberbly dammaged your valves on your cylinder head, if the timing belt is not correctly allined with certain marks on the cogs, you most certanly have caused dammage, you will have to get the system checked for compression now, as if you have bent the valves the will be open all the time and you will have no compression, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, i do have a diagram and a write up if you would like it, email me at... email@example.com and i will send you it ok

Think you have to put a flat bar across the back of the cam shafts same as the old ZETEC ford motors. Failing that are the vernier pullies marked with eithr O T or do they have a - or a . that line up with a position on the end of the cylinder head.

Did your vehicle shut down while driving before
pulling over? If not then I would say that it may not be the Timing
Belt, cause your vehicle would have shut down as soon as it broke.
It is possible that the water pump has gone bad. And it is run by the Timing Belt. So, it would only make sense to change the Timing Components at the same time.
And of course the dealer is gonna be more expensive than if you call your local repair shops.
So, I would call around and inquire about your problem and then decide on which one you feel has been more truthful and have it taken to them for diagnosis.
Or if you are mechanically enclined we can assist in diagnosis by giving you places to start looking.
No the car did not cut off by itself, I pulled over and turned it off, it did however suddenly run very hot, the Temp gauge went from normal to the red zone in less than 1 minute, (the time it took me to pull over and shut it down).
First - you will need to see if you can remove the Top Section of the Timing Covers or at least get a good look at the belt and have some one bump the engine over to make sure the belt is still intact and rotates the cams.
Next - if the timing belt checks intact need to check for fuel.
If getting fuel will then need to check for Spark at the Plugs. Should be a Bright Bluish/White.
If no fuel turn key to on position and listen for Fuel Pump should run about 3 - 5 seconds and shut off. If don't hear fuel pump check relays.
