Hello, I'm a person of (very) limited mechanical ability. I was going to follow the instructions in my Haynes manual to change my timing belt. The car is a 1989 Toyota Corolla (4aFC). My problem is that the manual says to jam a screwdriver or lever in the ring gear to stop the crank shaft from turning when loosening the crankshaft pulley. I have no idea how to expose the ring gear. It seems a bit too much effort to take out the transmission to change the timing belt. Is there an in

I am thinking about buying a 1996 Toyota Corolla sedan with 71,000 miles. In negotiating the price, I am concerned because it has the original TIMING BELT and while the front disc brakes were changed the rear Drum brakes. have 71,000 miles on them. Toyota recommends TIMING Belt change at 60,000 MILES [THE CAR IS NOW 13 YEARS OLD]? How long to Rear DRUM brakes last - going on 71,000! Any quotes on replacement/repair costs will be appreciated. Thanks, Michael

I changed the timing belt at 61,577 K. this means I have 4030 miles before I hit the 60K 'scheduled maintenance' of the timing belt again. but I will be driving my car 350 miles away, for work, and keeping it there for the next six months, and I REALLY don't want to have anything go wrong then. There, I'll be commuting about 30 miles 6 times a week, over 20 weeks. Is it safe to wait until I return, in six months, to replace the b

1991 Toyota Corolla - Changed the distributor, spark plugs, coolant sensor. Also tightened the distributor belt (main) and the tensor. The car runs great for a few minutes, even hours, then stops... The check engine light shows, but then after a few minutes, I can start the car and continue like nothing happened. This may happen 3 or 4 times daily, ranging from 3 minutes to 20 minutes to restart. I bought a new gas pump and another belt and tensor, just in case. Any other suggestions?

Timing belt just came back from my 76,000 miles oil change for my 2001 Acura TL. The "consultant" said that I should change the timing belt, and spark plugs, because it is recommended.

I am a female, so I always worry that I am being taken advantage of. Please advise.
