I had a 2002 Lexus, basically a Camry. It's not too bad of a job to change the belt on that one. I think it took me 4 hrs.

I watched a friend do the timing belt on our '91 Corolla (4 cyl, obviously) a few years back, and he removed the front passenger side wheel/tire and went in that way.  Can't remember, but he might have removed some of the fender liner too (if it has one).

Good luck with it.

Took the breather base and cover in for blasting and powder-coat.  Should be done mid next week.

The Lexus ES came with the V6 only, and is actually the Toyota Windom in Japan.  The Camry is the watered down budget version.

Today I... had to suck 12 gallons of E85 out of my wife's brand-spankin'-new Subaru... She forgot my Yukon can run it, but her's can't. Haven't even made a payment on it yet.

At least I had room in the Yukon's tank for it, and enough 100% gas in the lawnmower tank to get her to the station to top off.

Those are nifty little cars with the 1.9 V6 in them.  It's popular to put in the Japanese market 200 hp 2.5 V6 in them, 200 hp goes a long way in a car that small and light.

Gee, thanks.  Just the Hell do you know all this stuff, Box?

Today I...  I think it's obvious what I did today.  See reply #1301.  I was in the garage ALL day, except for parts runs.

Most of my years of car ownership have been with Japanese cars.  Toyota being my preferred manufacturer sort of like GM is my preferred domestic manufacturer, but I like most all brands so I tend to retain everything pertaining to cars in general.  Sorta like the GEO Prism is just a rebadged Toyota Corolla that sells for less because it says GEO on it instead of Toyota.  Funny thing about that is Toyota got the Cavalier in exchange and over in Japan there are right hand drive Toyota Cavaliers.

Searched in vain for 17" 5x120.65 rims that aren't 5-spokes for the millionth time.  So far the only thing I've really found are C4 sawblades:

I kind of like them, though I think it's more to the fact they're not "yet another 5-spoke" than how they look themselves.  I suppose in anthracite or black they would work ok.

GM never ceases to amaze me, so for one what should've been a five minute job taking out the subwoofer to check it and putting it back in turned into over a half hour fiasco because instead of threading the sheet metal or welding in a nut they used flimsy clips that fall off once you take the speaker out... If that wasn't enough for some reason I have a SVC setup that was used in Camaros... *flips crap over and leaves*

Today I... FINALLY finished the timing belt job on Yota! 


I had a 2002 Lexus, basically a Camry. It's not too bad of a job to change the belt on that one. I think it took me 4 hrs.

My A$$!  Took me the better part of two days.  Mostly because I could NOT find certain parts I needed.  If I would have had every part (AND TGOL) I'd needed right then and there, I'd guess the labor took about 10 hours.

Even then, after it was done, I turned the key and it fired right up.  No leaks and ran great :-)  Then I remembered the water outlet housing that had broken upon removing the motor mount brace from it.  Have to tear the whole top of the engine apart to get to it.  That means more money in parts and more time wasted :-(

It might be high time to get rid of this thing....

Went on a great cruise with the Indy Firebird Club.  Fabulous weather here in Indiana.  After a slow start we headed to southern Indiana with its twisting roads for some fun.  Visited historical Rising Sun, Indiana.  Ate at a local diner and over all a great time with friends and Firebird enthusiasts.  Met a local young fan that saw our cars and stopped by.  He has a 1991, 305 5 speed.  He and is dad, who in his younger days had a 77 TA joined us for lunch.  Driving back stopped to gas up and another car guy came over and invited the group to a car show outside of Indy.  All this is one of the aspects that I enjoy; meeting others that enjoy cars, whether Firebirds or not, it is all good.

I totally know what you mean when you mention the clips.  I just replaced the 2 Rear Quarter Panel Subwoofers in my 2000 WS6.  The clips don't want to stay in place.  They either fall off into the quarter panel or wanna stick to the magnet on the Sub.  I found giving them a little pinch before sliding them into place kept them where they need to be. 

The fact that they're clips instead of permanent fixtures did work out well for me.  I'm not sure the mounting holes on the aftermarket Subs I installed were in the same location as the factory pieces.  So being able to move the clips around made mounting much more simple.  I didn't have to drill any new holes.  :)

Yeah I took and squeezed the clips with some pliers and it worked out, when I go to replace the other side I'll know to catch the top two clips.  I'm just more irked about it having the wrong system, the wiring hasn't been messed with and it's a Delco speaker so it's not due to a previous owner...

My car is surprisingly quiet, it's a lot quieter than the '96 Z28 my father had but his also had T-tops.  Of course once I do the intake and subsequently the exhaust it'll be a bit louder inside, but those are good noises to hear.

that's a bad ass ride Jack, and ;) haha, nice.... wonder when i will finally get them wheels spinning on my ride :shock: i did manage to fish-tail it a bit the other day coming into a street from a sub-street, it was fun and it was very well controlled so no crap in pants from the passenger :lol:

oh, and am ordering a sun shade for the front window and also will be ordering some seat covers since the driver seat is torn a bit, and the seat covers will be better here for the SoCal hot weather, rather then the leather seats... and also going to be looking to get a cover for the front dash, the glare from it on the window is nuts!!!

I'm glad I have cloth seats in mine, hold me in better and no burning my thighs. :P  As far as the dash goes if you used interior cleaner on it and then hit it with Meguiar's Ultimate it won't be super shiny, almost like a satin or semi-gloss sheen to it.  The sun shade is a good idea though, I need to get around to finding a custom one for the fourth gen since nothing else is nowhere big enough.

my dash has a couple cracks in it too so figured maybe a good way to cover it up, keep the interior clean/last longer and get the shine away, but will keep the Meguiar's product in mind and on the list.... as to the sun shade, i think i found a place that makes them specific to the car, my neighbor has purchased stuff from them before and says they fit well on his trucks and an SUV. i think it's like $65, but may be worth it if fits well in the 4th gen. if you want to wait i will most likely order this coming week, although they say it can take up to 2 weeks for delivery as they don't stuck, they cut to the specific car and order and then ship.

Today I... actually this entire past weekend... wasted about $500 and 18~ish hours fixing my daily driver. That time estimate includes labor, parts runs, and tool fabrication.  I'm highly, HIGHLY upset about all of this.  That's  a lot of time and money to be wasting on a frikken vehicle with over 270K. 

Oh and also, that water outlet housing that I was talking about...  I ended up snapping a sensor off inside it  :evil:  That meant I had to break out my mad tap and die skillz :-)  What I REALLY needed was a helicoil.  Didn't have any that size, and on a Sunday.... good luck finding anything. 

Ha, I used a massive amount of teflon tape and snugged it up.  So far so good, but I don't trust it.  Then I put everything back together again only to have a fuel injector o-ring go bad.  Fuel everywhere.  Junkyard trip number 3 for the weekend. 

Everything said and done, I took poor Yota for a "spirited" test drive.  darn thing runs better now than it ever has.  The kicker:  The CEL has not turned on since the new timing belt was installed.....

If something catastrophic on this car fails one more time, I'm done with it.

Replaced all mine ,the two in the middle,front of main body, I had two remove inner fenders due to spinning nuts, cages were barely welded. Passenger side was much easier to remove than driver side. Well worth the effort.

Ahhh ok, ye I have one small crack in mine next to the vent in the cap I need to get around to fixing but to do it right I need to figure out how to pull the cap and not make things worse than they are in the process.  Going to fiberglass it from the back so cracks will be a distant worry, I have thought about wrapping it in vinyl or carbon fiber as well but I can't decide.  If the sun shade turns out really well I'd like to hear about it, at the moment I'm using a Foose one I bought for my Celica and then used in the Miata.  Was too big for them but in the Firebird it does well enough to shade the steering wheel and shift knob and keep the cracked area out of the sun. :lol:

270K is a lot for any vehicle, but from what I can recall you've pretty much replaced all the major stuff so you should be good for some time.  It sucks having to fix older cars but it's a lot cheaper than a $300+ monthly payment on something that's losing value faster than you're paying it off.  Then the difference in insurance and tags etc...

Ok, I'll wait to reassemble the front once I do the bushings. Just sitting idle on it is killing me, I did use Rustoleum Hammered Rattle Can paint to cover one of the SFC. We 'll see how it looks tomorrow

I'm glad I have cloth seats in mine, hold me in better and no burning my thighs. :P  As far as the dash goes if you used interior cleaner on it and then hit it with Meguiar's Ultimate it won't be super shiny, almost like a satin or semi-gloss sheen to it.  The sun shade is a good idea though, I need to get around to finding a custom one for the fourth gen since nothing else is nowhere big enough.

my dash has a couple cracks in it too so figured maybe a good way to cover it up, keep the interior clean/last longer and get the shine away, but will keep the Meguiar's product in mind and on the list.... as to the sun shade, i think i found a place that makes them specific to the car, my neighbor has purchased stuff from them before and says they fit well on his trucks and an SUV. i think it's like $65, but may be worth it if fits well in the 4th gen. if you want to wait i will most likely order this coming week, although they say it can take up to 2 weeks for delivery as they don't stuck, they cut to the specific car and order and then ship.
Ahhh ok, ye I have one small crack in mine next to the vent in the cap I need to get around to fixing but to do it right I need to figure out how to pull the cap and not make things worse than they are in the process.  Going to fiberglass it from the back so cracks will be a distant worry, I have thought about wrapping it in vinyl or carbon fiber as well but I can't decide.  If the sun shade turns out really well I'd like to hear about it, at the moment I'm using a Foose one I bought for my Celica and then used in the Miata.  Was too big for them but in the Firebird it does well enough to shade the steering wheel and shift knob and keep the cracked area out of the sun. :lol:

cool, i'll let you know
