SOURCE: need to replace my clutch in a toyota avensis

I have a 2001 Avensis 1.8 VVTi and just had to strip the engine to change the piston rings - the clutch was easy, compared to the rest. The Haynes manual has it all in and the job may take some time. I had access to a fully equipped car hobby club to do mine and i still took 50 hours to out the engine and strip it.

But to be honest, dropping the tranny is the biggest part of the job, the rest is 8 bolts and a clutch plate.
It's the disconnection of the tranny thats the tme consumer - the procedure simplified is - wheel off, track rod end off, wishbone off, CV joint out, electrics to tranny off, support the engine on blocks, support strut off, tranny off, clutch off.
As they say in the Haynes Manual - 'Replacement is the reverse of removal'

Hope this helps in deciding what to do!

Are toyota avensis wagon good cars


hello and greetings
i have been following avensis even before it came to existence, i mean to say i owned a toyota carina diesel td, before then an avensis 2002 first generation and now avensis second generation 2008 and all of them were diesel.
i found carina and avensis gen 1 to be easily manageable and easy to replace daily parts like lights and engine parts. i got impressed with carina thats why i bought avensis both are brilliant cars with minimal hokus pokus and focus being on the engine and long running machines with very or no visits to garage. due to change in environment laws and advancement in technology, the latest avensis is much more quiet, effective and runs very good , still toyota has kept it simple when it comes to interior and outlook, but the engine of the avensis has become more effective and powerful and also smooth.
few things to keep in mind is that that gen 2 avensis has egr and diesel particulate filter, these can clogged if the avensis is driven less and short tours, in my case this is not the problem. i already have spare diesel particulate filter and turbo with me bought on internet, in case it goes wrong. would like to mention that a friend of mine have mercedes and the dealer has advised him to drive on a long tour every year for over 180km to keep the engine from dying.
so this problem is not just related to avensis.
here are the pros and cons
pros.
1. reliable
2. few visits to garage.
3. good mileage around 16 to 18 km pr litre
4. big trunk room
5. small to big family requirement is fulfilled
6. nice on long routes

cons
1. simple design with no first class interior

so as you see the pros are more than cons and hence making it the first choice

Timing belt or chain


Toyotas usually have chain if that is what you were asking and Auris started to have chain since 2007 model IIRC.

When should I change my timing chain or belt on a 1997 sebring xji


change timing chain when noisy and belt around 100.000klm. To do a proper job consider changing cam and crank oil seals. hydraulic belt tensioner and all idler pulleys as oil is the biggest killer of timing belts and idlers work just as hard as the belt

Water pump on a 2002 dodge interpid i beleave has went out where is it located and how hard is it to change


If you dont know where it is,, how can you check it? depends what engine you have, if its a 2.7l its inside the engine and big bucks to replace. you also want to replace the timing chain and components while its apart. 3.5l engine , not a big job.

How do you change the timing chain on a 2002 chevy s10?


why do you want to change it did it break ? if not then leave it alone it should last very long time. but if you must you will have to remove everything in front of the front cover starting with the radiator so as not to damage it remove: alternator,power steering pump,a/c compressor and fan the harmonic balancer also has to come off before you can remove the front cover. big job. hope this helps you

My 1990 nissan sentra has a noisy timing chain when running idle.


Your timing chain tensioner is using oil pressure to stay tight.Could be your oil pressure is so low at idle the tensioner just can't stay tight.At the next oil change you could go for a thicker oil and see if the tensioner keeps the chain tighter at idle.

Does the Corolla 2003 model have a timming belt or chain?Does the water pump has to be changed at 70K miles? Thanks. Adrian


Adrian,

Until 2002 Toyota's had a timing belt. After 2002, Toyota's have a timing chain. Manufacturer/dealers recommend replacement of the timing chain at about 90,000 miles. I've talked to several mechanics - including the dealer - about the cost of changing out the chain. The lowest price I found from a very reputable mechanic is $260-270. He told me that if I brought in the part, he'd reduce the cost. The dealership was almost double!

Re: water pump: I haven't found anything that stated it must be changed at 70K miles. Hope this was helpful.
