. Production was limited to a yearly run of 2,500 units. That's all trial and error. Do not post pictures taken by others. Safety enhancements included enlarged , at all positions, and a new collapsible steering column. I have to say that reassembly is far more unpleasant than disassembly! Heavier with cushy suspension, so bushings and etc. We all enjoy a a good laugh.
Additionally, timing belt driven water pumps should also be replaced at the same time as the timing belt. Subsequent negotiations averted the sanctions by the second quarter of that year, and sales recovered in the following months. Naturally, things did not proceed smoothly! I don't want to get ripped off by the mechanics since I'm learning as much as possible on these beautiful cars. Brakes are not the best on this car. It is recommended to replace the water pump once you get in that far. The vehicle received larger , wheels, and tires, and adjustments were made to the suspension and systems to improve handling. Automotive analysts have suggested a possible rationale for the sales disparity, in that European buyers place less emphasis on vehicle reliability and have more to established domestic marques.
Located in the engine compartment behind the drive belts, the timing belt keeps the crankshaft in sync with the camshaft s , essentially ensuring the proper timing and operation of the engine and its valves. The powerplant remained the same as before. Made of wear-resistant fabric and manufactured with high tensile strength cord and molded tooth surface, it ensures consistent slip-proof power transfer and high resistance to oil and engine heat. These cars must be maintained properly, however. The headlights were also equipped with a programmable delay feature for proximity illumination. There are several online sources with very reasonable prices.
Any suggestions on what might be wrong? First Toyota V8 I have seen up close and I was surprised to see a cap mounted to the front of each cam pulley and tham aappretnly boxed in by the front cover. As far a I know Snap-on and others do not make this tool. After that, I would manually revolve the crank, lets say ten times, and see if cam pulleys still align exactly. It sure looks like the same engine though. This is the 4th revision of the A block, Performance head, supercharged, fuel injected. Adding incentive for early U.
For example, electric cars, steam powered cars, jet powered cars and other non Internal Combustion Engine powered cars do not have timing belts. If it is staying on after the car is running, it could be that the cap to your gas tank is not completely closed. The pump had seized, causing the timing belt to melt and shed all of its teeth throughout the timing belt chamber, and overheated the idler pulleys and making them both seize. Removal of this bolt is a job for 2 grown men. The car was then so nice even all the electric gizmos work that my wife wanted to drive it. Check the torque for this bolt as memory says it is 210 or 220 foot lbs.

Any offending posts will be deleted, this rule will be enforced with extreme prejudice. I change my belt at 100k and it was still good for 10k+ miles. I could get away with a new timing belt and nothing else new, and be good for another 50,000 miles, which is longer than I expect to keep the car. Hi guys, How accurate is this link from Gates.
After reaching the top of travel the exhaust valve closes and the intake valve reopens. The oil should be changed every 7,500 miles with synthetic oil. I am not completely certain about the first half of '95 engines, but I strongly believe they are interference as well. The sedan was equipped with a new 4. This stood in contrast to the predictions of early detractors, including rival manufacturers who dismissed Toyota as incapable of producing a competitive luxury vehicle.
Available luxury options included a premium sound system and an integrated with capabilities. The low-speed tracking mode was a second mode that would warn the driver if the car ahead stopped and provide braking; it could stop the car but then deactivated. I had a look at it after broken and it was brittle as I could tear it and or rip it apart by hand. The timing belt needs to be checked to ensure that the timing marks are properly aligned. That's it, that's all you need to do! Stylistically, the vehicle sported a new front fascia, side mirrors, and updated wheels; a rear window replaced the conventional power mast.
If you really want to keep the car and money is no object, look into turbocharging or supercharging. I decided to wait, as well. Production development lasted from 1991 until conclusion in the second quarter of 1994. The cabin received upgrades, including a , , retractable rear headrests, reading lamps, and -tinted glass, while the climate control gained a filtration feature with a smog sensor.
