#203 of 260 2000 camry timing belt
Feb 02, 2011 (6:08 pm)
thanks for the input,timing belt is 229 plus tax.I called the dealer today,servive adviser said to do the water pump would be another 400 plus 20 for the coolant,so thats 650 plus tax,for timing belt and water pump.I called another toyota dealer in gardena and he quoted me 664 plus tax for timing belt and water pump.expensive.To do an oil seal to this will probably add another 300.11 year old car.

Some belts have 'em, some don't but it really shouldn't matter. Some have an arrow to guide you about rotation of the engine, but I'm not sure that's even necessary. it's the marks on the engine and pulleys that count here.

This is not a do it yourself, if you have not worked on engines before. You'll end up with a vegetable.

As it happens, I just took my 2005 Camry XLE V6 to the dealer today for the 90000 mile service. The service manual clearly says that the timing belt has to be changed for Camrys with 1MZ-FE or 3MZ-FE engines but surprisingly the guy at the service desk did not mention it - I had to remind him about this. Since these are interference engines, I would definitely recommend changing the timing belt.

I have a 2003 Camry LE with 90,000 miles. The engine discription "4-cyl., 2.4 liter Disp.,V VT-1, DOHC, EFI engine, 4-speed ECT Automatic Transmission. It runs fine. Should the timing belt be replaced?
