Timing belts (care and feeding of)

Postby ezshift5 » Wed Sep 03, 2003 6:53 pm

Is the Solara V6 an "interference" or a "non-interference" engine? If the belt fails, do the pistons cream the valves or does the engine just stop?

Thanks...ez

non-interference. no harm to the engine if the belt snaps.

all toyota belt driven engines are non-interference. all toyota chain driven engines are interference.

my dad told me u can just drive the car til the belt snaps and then get a new one, and it would be the same cost (aside from towing i guess) as doing the preventative replacement at 60k. is that true?

I think that question is best asked of Murphy since he always has his most fun in scenarios like this. If Murphy has his way, your timing belt will snap when you are about to enter a hard corner and or needing to brake quickly. Certainly he will cause the timing to be right when you NEED to be somewhere and are already a little late. Then when your car is towed to the shop, they have to order the belt so it will be a day or 2 without your car. Your decision, I prefer "PREVENTIVE" maintenance. -JoeB

my mom had a mid eighties (I don't remember the year) diesel corola. She was driving home one day and the engine just stopped and she lost steering. It turned out the timing belt snapped and tore up a bunch of stuff on the engine (I don't remember what I was pretty young then). The insurance cmopany deemed it totaled. BTW she had all the belts checked at jiffy lube a couple weeks prior.

Those quick-change/lube shops do NOT look at timing belt since it's under a cover. The belts they supposedly visually inspect are crankshaft, A/C, and power steering, which are all visible to you and me.

Doesn't matter if it's supercharged or not it's the same proceedure (just alot more to remove !!). I do these daily at our Dealership and I can tell you I have seen the belts snap and take stuff out. It can cost you much more to just "let it go" than it would to do it as a preventive maintenance. The most common is taking out the crank sensor & crank gear. We used to do these as part of the 60k service, but within the last 5 years or so our region has change the belt replacement from 60K to 75K. Basically, if you remove a couple of the top bolts from the cover, pull it back slightly & you can see the ribs of the belt on the smooth side or ANY type of cracking, it's time for a new belt. Also if you have any type of fluid (ie oil, coolant or powersteering) getting on the belt it will destroy it. So, if you see a leak when your replacing the belt (like cam seals, crank seal or water pump) fix it now !! It will save you a bunch headaches down the road and make your new belt last.
