Question about 1990 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Hi, my 1990 Toyota Camry with 3S-FE engine noises on timing belt side recently. I got my timing belt and water pump changed in 2006 December. So far I drove the car around 50,000km. I changed my power steering pump in May this year since it leaked. The current noise sounds like something scrutching the timing belt cover. But the noise is not regular and stable. Some time it becomes loud and others is quiet. Check this side of engine, I found there is some coolant mark on the engine. Do you think it is water pump problem or what else? What should I check and probably need to fix? Thank you for your answer.

I had the same problem in my 3sFE, I thought the same way you did, but it turn out to be the fan, check if there is any play in the fan, change it and your scrutching noise will be no longer there

    Thank you for your suggestion. I got one more idea to figure out this problem.

    Actully, my car 's timing belt was broken in December of 2010 and all the coolant drained out. After then, i got timing belt, water pump and appropriate seals replaced.

they have to be removed to get to the water pump

normally timing belt, seals ,tension er pully and water pump are replaced at the same time ..comes in a kit

i dont have the 5S-FE cooling system hot under pressure specs

so I cant answer which inline electric pump pressure is required to work on the 5S-FE

How do you replace thermost n waterpump on 93 toyota camery


and? At least 3 engines.
what engine, we can not guess engine ever, nor country.
remove thermostat housing after coolant drained, all cars.
but waterpumps can be easy to hard.
some engines real hard, timing belt off, or worse.

ill pick one at random for you, dice rolled.
bam. lets go
usa car
usa alldata.com (so can you, so can Anyone with 15 bucks)
i click year, and camry.
i then click engine cooling.
it says:>>>>
2VZ-FE & 3VZ-FE Engines
  1. Drain the engine coolant.
  2. Disconnect the lower radiator hose at the water inlet.
  3. Disconnect the timing belt from the water pump pulley.
  4. Remove the bolt holding the inlet pipe to the alternator belt adjusting bar and then remove the inlet pipe and O-ring.
  5. Remove the water inlet and thermostat.
  6. Remove the seven bolts and then pry off the water pump.


I then click tbelt pages
2S-FE, 3S-FE & 5S-FE Engines
  1. Remove the timing belt covers as previously detailed.
  2. Raise the engine just enough to remove the weight from the engine mount on the right side.
  3. Remove the thru-bolt, two nuts, and right hand mounting insulator.
  4. Remove the retaining bolts and remove the right hand mounting bracket (from the side the alternator was removed from).
  5. Remove the timing belt and timing belt guide. If the timing belt is to be reused, draw a directional arrow on the timing belt in the direction of engine rotation (clockwise) and place matchmarks on the timing belt and crankshaft gear.
  6. Remove the bolt retaining the No. 1 idler pulley and tension spring.
  7. Remove the No. 2 idler pulley.
  8. Remove the crankshaft timing gear , if it can NOT be removed by hand, use two flat bladed tools to pry it off. Make sure to position shop rags to prevent damages to the components.
  9. Remove the nut retaining the oil pump pulley.
V30 Camry?
first know what engines there, before you buy parts. or read books.
or its all just a waste of time, for all.

here is the engine LINEUP, that i cant guess. ever (at least 6)
1.8 L I4 gasoline (4S-FE)
2.0 L I4 gasoline (3S-FE)
2.0 L I4 gasoline (3S-GE)
2.0 L V6 gasoline (1VZ-FE)

1996 toyota camry 2.2 5s- too manny timing marks crank shaft,cam shaft and cam shaft gears


Hi there:I dont have this diagram for 2S-ELC, 3S-FE and 5S-FE Engines, but pay attention at this...
To install:
  1. Align the cutouts of the oil pump pulley and shaft, and slide the pulley on. Retain the pulley while tightening the nut to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
  2. Align the crankshaft timing pulley set key with the key groove of the crankshaft pulley, then slide the pulley on.
  3. Install the No. 2 idler pulley with the bolt and tighten to 31 ft. lbs. (42 Nm). Be sure the pulley moves smoothly.

Remove any oil or water on the idler pulley and keep it clean.

  1. Temporarily install the No. 1 idler pulley with the retaining bolt. Hint: use a 1.65 inch (42mm) bolt in length. Do not tighten the bolt yet. Install the tension spring. Pry the pulley toward the left as far as it will go, then tighten the bolt.
  2. Turn the crankshaft until the key groove in the crankshaft timing pulley is facing upward. Install the timing belt on the crankshaft timing, oil pump, No. 2 idler and water pump pulleys.

If the old timing belt is being reinstalled, make sure the directional arrow is facing in the original direction and that the belt and crankshaft gear matchmarks are properly aligned.

  1. Install the lower (No. 1) timing belt cover and new gasket with the four bolts.
  2. Align the crankshaft pulley set key with the pulley key groove. Install the pulley. Tighten the pulley bolt to 80 ft. lbs. (108 Nm).
  3. On 2S-ELC engines, turn the crankshaft pulley and align the 0 mark on the lower (No. 1) timing belt cover.
  4. Align the camshaft knock pin with the matchmarks on the oil seal retainer.
  5. On 2S-ELC/USA engines, align the knock pin with the pin hole on the timing pulley E mark side. On 2S-ELC/Canadian engines, align the knock pin with the pin hole on the timing pulley. On 3S-FE and 5S-FE engines, align the knock pin with the groove of the pulley, and slide the pulley onto the camshaft with the plate washer and set bolt.

On 2S-ELC engines, make sure that the Matchmark on the oil seal retainer and center hole of the small hole on the camshaft timing pulley are aligned.

  1. Using the removal tool to hold the pulley stationary, install and tighten the pulley set bolt to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm) on the 2S-ELC and the 3S-FE. On the 5S-FE, tighten the set bolt to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  2. On 3S-FE and 5S-FE engines, turn the crankshaft pulley and align the 0 mark on the lower (No. 1) timing belt cover.
  3. Install the timing belt and check the valve timing as follows:
    1. Align the matchmarks that you made previously, and install the timing belt onto the camshaft pulley.
    2. Loosen the No. 1 idler pulley set bolt 1 / 2 turn.
    3. Turn the crankshaft pulley two complete revolutions TDC to TDC. ALWAYS turn the crankshaft CLOCKWISE. Check that the pulleys are still in alignment with the timing marks.
    4. Tighten the No. 1 idler pulley set bolt to 31 ft. lbs. (42 Nm).
    5. Make sure there is belt tension between the crankshaft and camshaft timing pulleys.

  4. Install the upper (No. 2) timing cover with a new gasket(s). On the 5S-FE, align the two clamps for the engine wiring harness with the cover mounting bolts.
  5. Install the spark plugs.
  6. Install the right mounting insulator with bracket. Tighten the bracket bolts to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm), insulator nuts to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm) and thru-bolt to 52 ft. lbs. (71 Nm). On the 5S-FE, install the No. 2 engine mount bracket and tighten to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm); install the control rod and tighten the bolts to 47 ft. lbs. (64 Nm).
  7. Lower the engine.
  8. On 3S-FE and 5S-FE engines, install the alternator and alternator bracket. On 2S-ELC engines, install the power steering reservoir tank.
  9. Install the drive belt and adjust the tension.
  10. Install the cruise control actuator with bracket.
  11. Install the fender apron seal and right engine under cover.
  12. Install the right front wheel.


Hope this helps.

Hi, i have a 2003 toyota camry v6. everyone is saying the the bearings will need to be changed if i am going to change the timing belt. is this true thanks


If you change the timing belt it is reccomended to also change the tensioner and idler pulleys as well, depending on the mileage. You can change just the belt but it is a little risky, considering you can't actively see what's going on in there. If your timing belt slips on that engine, There's a good chance of doing major damage.

Water pump were to found it on the car


On the 3S-FE engine, you will have to remove the engine from the car, then pull the cover off where the timing belt is. The waterpump is inside there.
