Question about Toyota Camry

Open Question

THe alternator belt on my 2001 Toyota Caldina, GT-T broke off last night. I have bought a new one and have put it around the pulleys I can see (4 of them) but it still seems loose. Is there something I have missed? Is there somewhere I can see a diagram of a correctly fitted alternator belt?

must put chains (if you really need them) on all 4 wheels of your all wheel drive car to prevent a speed mis-match between front and rear...a mis-match can destroy the gearboxes over prolonged use. use chains that have many cross links to lessen the effect of any speed mis-match

SOURCE: Toyota Caldina cambelt broke. Valve damage?

Sorry to say there is most likely quite expensive damage to the valve train and pistons. A new cam belt can be installed and the motor rotated to see if it is turning freely after which you would do a compression check (lack of compression will indicate bent or broken valves). I've never seen a diesel break a belt and avoid damage, virtually always a catastrophic failure.

Were there any water leaks into the interior? Or did you ever jump start someone else's car? I had the same exact problem resulting from jump starting a friend's car. It spiked the electronic control unit (ECU) computer. I changed the ECU and the problem was fixed.

How do I intall a new fan belt on a 2004 envoy. I am not sure witch way it goes around the fan


If there is no diagram pasted in the engine compartment, check your owner's manual...or else go to your local auto store warehouse or Chevy dealership...usually the parts counter person can print out the diagram specifically to your vehicle. Since you did not mention the engine specs- I'm going to generically how to install a serpentine belt.

1.) make a loop and slip the loop around the crank shaft pulley
2.) continue looping the belt around the water pump pulley
3.) ...around the A/C pulley
4.) ...and around the idler pulley
Skip the alternator pulley for now- you want to do that one last.
5.) Continue placing the belt around the power steering pump pulley
6.) and over the belt tensioner pulley
7.) Now move the belt tensioner position so that you can loop the belt over the alternator.
8.) Now double check to make sure that the belt is properly and securely fastened around each pulley's grooves. Don't start the motor until you are absolutely sure... and can visually verify that the new belt is installed properly. And don't have anyone (or pets) standing around the car or open engine compartment when you initially start the car just in case the belt breaks...serious injuries can occur!
I've attached a generic drawing it may or may not fit the description of your auto.

Tip

Get that Serpentine belt back on


Your fan / serpentine belt broke, or you just replaced your alternator, A/C compressor, water pump or Power steering pump. The last thing to do is get that belt back on. And it's playing hard to get.

This is for you. It's easy and doesn't require a prybar. Here's how:

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded 'tensioner' arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done
The same technique is used to get the belt off

Toyota caldina . when car started both battery and a/t oil temp warning lights stay on


This is indicative of an alternator problem. However, it always pays to do some simple checks first. You should check your alternator plug-in connector and battery feed wire (connected via a ring terminal) for tightness, cororsion etc and general wiring around the battery for the same. Check the ALT-S 5A fuse and 100A fuselink in the fusebox (under the bonne/hood).
If all this looks OK, I'd suspect the voltage regulator unit in the alternator. If it's a high mileage unit (>200K km) it could also simply be the alternator brushes worn down. Both the brushes and voltage regulator are fairy easy DIY repairs.

Loose water pump pulley???


4 cyl or V6 - - gas or diesel ?
You can go to one of the online auto parts websites and look up the water pump to see if it looks like your pulley. Or visit a local store.
If the water pump pulley is moving, the bearing may be failing which would require replacement.
