#68 of 138 Echo service manuals
Aug 29, 2006 (4:56 am)
I've just purchased a 1995-2005 Echo service manual on a CD in pdf format that covers just about everything. I got this from a seller in Australia for 7 dollars on e-Bay. The CD has the Toyota logo and is copywrited by Toyota Japan so it's either an original or an excellent pirate copy. It covers all the mechanical and electrical components of the car and includes component drawings and might be something Toyota supplies to Dealers service departments. Manuals certainly exist and don't cost a fortune. It's just a matter of searching for them.

I know what it looks like, but where exactly on engine is it?
Auto Parts store "read" the ECU "Check Engine" code and said to clean the rear oxygen sensor.

I am looking for a service manual CD for my 2003 Echo, and I've also found the CD on eBay offered by a seller in Australia. But I need your help to get more information about this CD before I buy it on eBay. Here are my questions: Does it cover (1) OBDII codes and electronical wiring? (2) all sensors locations? (3) how many pages in total in that CD? (4) Who is the CD publisher of this manual?
Does it a universal manual only for Echo or Yaris (no specific year or model)?
Thanks and I appreciate your prompt response.

I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this- but I just had a question. I have a 2001 four door Toyota Echo (which I love!). I had it in for service to get the oil changed etc. The dealership marked that the Accessory Drive Belt(s) require immediate attention.
Can anyone tell me what these are?
I apologize if this has already been covered (I searched but
could not find anything on this) and hopefully this is not too stupid of a question!
I appreciate any insight anyone could provide.

These are the rubber belts on the front of the engine (which faces the passenger side under the hood). I can't remember offhand, but I suspect that the Echo just has a single belt that runs everything, which includes your alternator (without which your battery gradually goes flat) and power steering and A/C. Generally, the miles or the chemicals in the air eat your belts up about every four years. If yours is cracked or glazed, it may not be doing its job properly any more, and if it breaks you will not be able to drive much further before the battery goes dead, especially at night. For the $99 (hopefully less, that is a California price!)the service station will charge you, it is worth it to replace it once it is worn.
I will have to go look under the hood later and see how many drive belts mine has. I get it confused with my truck. :-/

2 belts. Takes about 60-90 minutes to change them. Toyota recommends every 60k. I've changed mine 3 times already. I let it go to 70k the first time, and the main belt had small cracks in it - which means it was really time to change it.

I'd be more than happy to burn you a copy of the CD if you will provide a mailing address. Unfortunately I have a dial up connection and my server would time out trying to send something this large on the net. These CDs are supposed to be available at dealerships but I haven't found one that has it. The one I have I bought from a contact in Australia.

Not a good idea to post a mailing address on a public webpage. One or both of you could/should make your email address public so you could contact each other offline with that kind of contact info. You can always go back and make it private again after you get where you want to be.
