Is it very difficult to change the cam iol seal on a 2.0 toyota rav 4 1999, and is there anything I should know that the book doesn't tell


pulling the timing belt on older RAV4 engines is a more difficult task but not impossible.

Do you have some experience with timing belts and or cars in general?

My Mazda 626 is a 2001 LX 4cyl my problem is that the engine turns but won't start it sounds like it wants to start at times but doesent,I've already chekd for spark has good spark I've checks...


and engine needs fuel, spark and air to run. If you are sure you have fuel and spark, the timing is the last thing to check. Your engine is provided with external alignment marks. take out all of your plugs, and by hand, turn your engine over until you see your harmonic balancer (pulley your belt is on at the bottom of the engine/crank) alignment marks meet with the marks on the engine block. Next you need to look at your cam gears. You might have to pull a plastic cover, or the valve cover off to see the cam gears. The cam gears have alignment marks as well. If all marks line up together at the same time, timing is not the issue. the timing belt is an iffy design. The timing belt tensioner could be warn out and only show signs or being warn out every now and then. your tensioner could have loosened up, caused your belt to jump, and clamp back again.

I REPLACED TIMING BELT .AND I WANT TO KNOW HOW TO RESET THE TIMING ,SO AS NOT TO DAMAGE TO MOTOR. WHEN I GO TO START IT UP .


If you did not set the gears(pulleys) in the same place or set the marks in the timing belt to the marks in the gears the car wont start. when you do the the job is when you set the timing, not after you done. If you use a cheap timing belt those belts do not have marks, I recommend to get a belt from toyota that has a mark for each cam pulley and another mark for the crank pulley. Toyota doesn't have interference engines, so no matter how bad is your timing the car wont start just spin.

Hey the water pump just went in my 1998 toyota rav4 2litre. how do i go about replacing it ? i cant find anywhere on here


Your water pump is driven by your timing belt, can not be seen with out remove timing belt cover, to replace you will also have to remove timing belt, if timing belt has not been replace best to replace it now also, timing belt should be replace every 60,000 miles. make sure before removing timing belt that you mark where all pulley gear's are at, so when you install the timing belt back on there in the same place as before you move the timing belt, no need to mark water pump gear,good luck,hope this was very helpful.

Changed water pump and timing belt today and now the car is rough starting like its the starter or fuel something


You most likely threw the timing off when you changed the timing belt.. Even throwing the timing off 1 tooth can cause it to run very rough.. I would check the timing marks on the belt and make sure they align with the marks on the timing gears. Good luck

Timing marks


This is a little hard, but you can do it the old fashoined way. You take the FIRST Spark plug out and stick a screw driver inside that hole. You crank the top gear until the little hash mark is all the way up. You will need two people to do the second step. the next thing you have to do is crank the bottom while using the screwdriver to make sure that the first cylinder is all the way up. Its very simple, but if it aint all the way up, your car wont start. You have to put the timing belt on those gears WITHOUT MOVING them AT ALL.

2001 pt cruiser broke timing belt


CHECK AUTO ZONE .COM FOR TIMING PROCEEDURE. I HAVE DONE THIS & IT IS VERY HARD TO GET TIMING MARKS PERFECTLY LINED UP. TOOK ABOUT 3 TRIES. ( CAMS WANT TO MOVE DURING PROCESS.) WHEN TIMING IS JUST RIGHT , IT WILL RUN. MAKE SURE BOTH CAM SROCKET ARROWS ARE POINTING UP. THERE IS A TIMING MARK IN THE VALLEY OF THE EXHAUST CAM SPROCKET TEETH THAT I MISSED.YOU HAVE TO START WITH EXHAUST CAM TIMING MARK JUST BELOW INTAKE CAM SPROCKET TIMING MARK & THEN WHEN BELT IS COMPLETELY ON , MOVE EXHAUST CAM TO TAKE UP SLACK IN BELT. IT WORKS !!!
