2002 Camry 5S-FE timing belt change - when?


Recommended Posts

Daughter is getting different stories from different garages on when the timing belt needs to be changed in her 2002 Camry (5S-Fe motor).

Some saying 150,000kms, others 100,000kms.

Anyone know?

Just wandered down to our local Armidale mechanic and he looked it up in the Toyota Service manual (he has a whole wall full of big thick service manuals!) and it definitely says for the 2002 2.2L 5S-FE it is 150,000kms. Apparently it changed from 100,000kms after the 1997 model.

But the guy in Bathurst said it was 100,000kms. Maybe a lot of them use 100,000kms as a general rule of thumb rather than looking up the specific model in the service manual.

Just think about doing a timing kit and water pump all at the same time.

Cost more to do in one go but saves you alot if you do it seperately.

I normally do it when i think my water pump is on its way out about 100000kms to 140000kms is the max ive got from a few different cars.
