Engine Drama's


Recommended Posts

hope this will help. I just got my car back this afternoon from toyota. They replaced a new timing belt tensioner and the tapping noise that i had before all gone. Noise does travel from one side to another especially there are lots of metal parts in the surrounding area

*timing chain

Not timing chain. It is called 'tensioner'-according to the mechanic from toyota. It looks like a small suspension that attached to the engine. It is situated some where around the power brake fluid reservoir or to be exact is behind the drive belt. You can ask toyota mechanic for more details. I just tell everyone what i know

I think what Tayles meant is that the Corolla does not have a timing belt as you stated, it has a timing chain. The tensioner is the tensioner, the timing belt is a chain not a belt.
