Why do you think the timing belt is an issue, you would be better to give me the symptom rather the question you posed, you can check the timing belt by pulling of the belt cover and putting the crankshaft pulley to the TDC mark and then checking the index mark on the cam pulley(s), the pulley mark should line up with the index mark on the engine, if not the belt has jumped, in this case it must be replaced, if you do replace the belt make sure all the pulleys and the belt tensioners bearings are not rough feeling or have play in them.

CAR DIED WHILE DRIVING,will not restart ,crank shaft very hard to turn by hand with all belts off timing belt and timing marks are perfect.3.0l camry


Oooh, your timing belt is OK? and the engine is hard to turn? You may have suffered an engine seizure due to oil starvation. Some Toyota Camry engines around this year suffered bad sludging, leading to this. If you take the spark plugs out, place the trans in neutral, and the engine is still hard to turn at the crank pulley, oooh, I think it is partly seized, sorry.

If not, I think the timing belt jumped a tooth or 2 (if old), or the fuel supply dropped pressure, or the spark failed at the igniter.

No problem just need advice. Have Moms 1998 toyota camry. 30,000 miles. Should I change the timing belt because of age? Same situation with Dads 2wd 1998 4runner 60,000 miles. They will now be driven more.


No way. They usually don't wear until 100,000 miles. Some last for the life of the vehicle. I would change around this time. You should be good my friend.

Toyota 89 camry will turn over but won't start, timing belt has surface cracks but not broke timing appears to be correct.


did you check for spark at the plugs? if there is no spark then the distributor is the problem and it's not cheap

Timing belt replacement


It's not the easiest belt to do, I think it has the grenade style hydraulic tensioner, which is not a big deal if you know how to reload them, but if he's done timing belts before, it should all go OK if he takes his time. If you need info on the tensioner or anything else, just let me know. I would suggest registering the car for free at autozone, I'm pretty sure they have a manual for this job/car available. Also, check ebay for parts, some sellers have timing belt kits that include pumps....very cheap!

Timing belt 2005 4 cylinder camry


Hello, A 2005 Camry with a 2.4 4 cylinder engine has a timing CHAIN not belt. I don't think that there is a routine maintenance schedule for this. If there is no audible noise coming from the chain area, you probably have nothing to worry about.
I hope this helps
