    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 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...

    All right ladies and gents, I searched for this and couldn't find anything, so any insight is very much appreciated. I have a 2004 Toyota Sequoia with 108,000 that I have no record of a timing belt ever being replaced. I called my local Toyota dealer and they want over $1,000 to do the job...

    My first attempt at a water pump/timing belt replacement went OK, though a bit long at 3 days. I'm finishing up, the radiator is in, and have connected everything, then had a Grand Mal seizure when I looked at my work bench and realized that the O-ring that fits on the water supply pipe, the...

    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...

    What is the recommended mileage to do your timing chain and water pump? Is it something you can do yourself or is it recommended to have a shop do it? Also what is a ballpark price range for do it yourself and for shop work?

    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...

    I am going to be replacing my alternator and water pump on my 2001 Tundra. Should I stick with stock parts or go with aftermarket? Any suggestions on which aftermarket product I should choose? Thank you.
