for newer vehicles (tiny little chains) when there is lack of maintenance or the intervals of LOF are spaced to far apart.... With lack of necessary amount of oil or poor oil quality causes higher oil temp causing the chain to overheat and stretch - and the slack in the chain can cause noise within the timing cover.... Cheers BB PS 360 comprehensive and 5100 PTO may only be a N.A. policy for toyota
I hear you on that one I just had to do my moms accord (3.0L) even at cost it was 600 and change (discounted labour). Did the wp and the idlertensioner pulleys while I was in there. ...On my echo (older yaris...) it calls for 4.2 hrs to change one cam gear. 5 hours isnt that bad considering. The timing coverchain has to come off.
actually i know what he is talking about the TSB. that year they made a design change in the vvti cam gears. i know for a fact the IS 250 and maybe the 350 had an issue with those. customer complains of a loud ticking noise on a cold start and goes away after a couple seconds. something in the cam gear cracks and calls for a new cam gear part number to replace it. there was a VIN number range that
9876 yes when we have a TSB (technical service bulletin) on our tech stream its only a quick reference to certain customer comlaints. its not necessary a recall because its not life threating but a mechanic malfuction in the vehicle that happens and can usually only do anything about it if the customer complains about it. toyota keeps track of all the custom complaints that are recorded and when they
how about a faulty timing chain tensioner would having the belt on cause extra strain on the chain causing it to rattle i would think the noise would get worse when you loaded the rpms if it was in the timing gear set

side airbags and that is indeed the code then you get to that sensor by pulling the lower B pillar cover. It is located next to the seatbelt assembly within the B pillar. Check for wire damage and if they are OK then you will need to replace the sensor. 3. There actually was a TSB for this for 07 yaris where the camshaft timing gear as opposed to the VVTI Oil control valve is the cause. With the toyota
Okay I tried to get more info out of the Asst. Service Manager this morning when I dropped the car off but it didnt sound like he fully understood the problem so he couldnt explain it very well. He said that he thought it was an idlertensioner cam gear that was the problem and was throwing the timing off every now and then. He said the last timing problem probably occurred during one of the engine
Are you sure its the tranny gear oil Might want to take a look for motor oil at the back of the engine on the passenger side nearest to the timing chain cover . It can run all the way from the top of the block to the oil pan and down under . Tell us what you discover . Post pics if possible and good luck on finding the source .

The TSB provides a simple Techstream procedure for verifying if the issue is the timing gear or if it is the VVTI oil control valve. The OCV can easily be damaged during a belt change and also it has a filter screen mounted below
had stopped making the Aereo in a hatch Subaru was no longer making the Baja... I wanted a small car because I enjoyed how easy it was to park and u-turn my Sidekick (which ironically had a higher safety rating than my Loyale) and Im very glad I had that preference as now I have to park in a ridiculously small parking garage... At the time the car manufacturers I looked to for long lasting cars (toyota
