You have to remove all the brackets holding the top of the engine on the passenger side of the car, alternator, power steering, and A/C belts. Then you can get to the plastic 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.

How do you take off the intake manifold on a 1995 Toyota Avalon

Very Carefully....But really...go to the local auto parts store and buy the Haynes manual for your car. Read the section on engine disassembly 3 times and then start removing parts. This all assumes you have the tools to do the job. If you do then get to it if not try Craigs list for an inexpensive mechanic. Good Luck.....SMP

Does it matter what size front exhaust pipe needed to repair 95 toyota avalon

Well, the main point is that it connects to the other two pipes without any leaks.
Also, if the replacement pipe is wider, it could touch other surfaces and damage them from the high heat.

2001 toyota avalon timing belt out of adjustment

This is not simple and requires a technician with the proper knowledge. Modern engines are non interference which means with the timing improperly set you can severly damage the engine. If the engine has not been damged already I would have the vehicle towed to someone who could repair it. Odds are if the timing is off and the engine wont crank the head has already been damaged.
