  1. Engine, Intake, Exhaust, Induction
    I am about purchase a 06 DC and the used car dealer stated that they replaced the timing belt but I want don't have a lot of confidence in their answer. Any suggestions on what I can look for that would support that they actually replaced the timing belt without disassembling everything as if I...

    First post here, I have a 2000 LC with a 4.7 engine that is similar to first gen tundra. Curious if anyone here has replaced their fan bracket pulley bearing? Through my research I have found that it is good practice to replace this bearing during a timing belt job. I have found many that have...

    I hope somebody can answer my question. I am in the process of replacing my timing belt on my 2000 Tundra. I purchased the kit and replaced the belt, water pump, tensioners etc. I made sure all my timing marks lined up on the block and the replacement belt. I am watching the video that A1 Auto...

    I finally changed my timing belt and water pump after driving my 03 Tundra 222,887 miles. I meant to change it sooner but just never could find the time or money. So while doing the repair, I broke two rusted bolts on the fan shroud, one rusted bolt on the skid plate, and the clip bolt for the...

    Hi, First, thank you for any advice or help. Second, I have an 03 V6 Tundra, manual, with 155k miles on it. I handle easy stuff, oil, brakes, spark plugs, ect. but know there are many things I'm not suited for. I've had the truck for about 40k miles with no issues. I got from my brother in...

    Guys, I could use a little input here. I have an '06 Sequoia 4x4 with 151K on it. I want to do the timing belt and water pump as I plan on keeping her for awhile yet. Local dealer (where I bought the thing brand new in 2006) wants over $1,100 to do the job. Probably more after they sell me a...

    So, let's get the story first as I'm not sure what happened. The truck, 2003 Toyota Tundra with a 3.4L paired to an automatic transmission. The truck has nearly 230,000 miles on it and my father in-law has owned it since it was new. He's replaced the timing belt once (at 110,000 miles in...

    Recently replaced the timing belt and associated parts and noticed the passenger cam seal had a small leak. I was unable to get a new cam seal or the valve cover gasket (cyl head cover according to the diagram) locally other than 3 day special order. Needed the truck back up on the road and...

    I am about to replace the timing belt on a tundra 2006, it has 120K miles, never done anything like this before, but i think I can handle it. Should I have the crank pulley on the ATDC or should I have it at TDC? I've seen videos on youtube that say to put it on ATDC so that no gears need to be...

    I did my timing belt today on my 06 DC. Everything went smooth. Double checked all the alignment marks, did a 720 degree rotate by hand check, finished installing everything and went to start it and NOT ! It just sputters for a few seconds then dies. Checked the codes and it'll like my...

    So I am in the middle of my timing belt/water pump replacement and I can't get the crank pulley bolt off. I've got most of the dis-assembly complete but have spent the last 2.5hrs trying to break the crank bolt free. I've tried a 1/2in drive impact and a breaker bar with a strap wrench to use...

    I have a 2004 Toyota Tundra with only 51k miles on it. I recently had the serpentine belt replaced at about 47k miles and when I went in for an oil change at about 50k miles they showed me how possibly the water pump was leaking. It was hard to tell for sure without really tearing into it. I've...
