Question about 1995 Toyota Avalon
Posted by Anonymous on
You have to remove all
the brackets holding the top of the engine on the passenger side of the
alternator, power steering, and A/C belts. Then you can get to the
covers that enclose the timing belt. The large bolt holding the
harmonic balancer was a hard one for me - had to use a large air impact
(fortunately my neighbor has a tire business and had a huge compressor
on the back of his truck).
Align the cam sprockets to the top of the engine with the little arrows on the head. Then you will notice the belt is aligned on the crankshaft at the bottom of the engine with the keyway facing slightly to the left (11 o'clock position or so). It will not be straight up. There is a little "o" mark on the crankshaft sprocket which aligns with a mark on the new belt.
Getting these marks exact requires writing down their exact locations before removing the old belt. Don't try it from memory unless you are a trained toyota factory technician. The cam sprockets at the top of the engine are lettered "R" and "L". The new timing belt will have corresponding letters. The timing belt has to be placed on with the letters reversed as they are facing you (as the "R" cam is actually on your left as you face the engine from the passenger side).
There should be an emissions label under the hood (the front of the car) and near that there should be a diagram showing how the belt is routed just buy the correct belt and put it on but be carefull cause the belt has to tensioned correctly or it will fall off.
