E11 Timing Belt


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, any idea how much it will cost to fit a new timing belt to a 99 E11 1.3 (4E-FE) (car has done 93k, dont think it was replaced at 60k)

Does anyone know how long it will take, i.e will i be cheaper buying a timing kit and getting a mechanic to fit it, if so where is the best place to buy one from.

Cheers!

they normally charge between 1 & 1.5 hours for that engine but if you know what you are doing you can change the belt in about half an hour

Providing that you have the right tools and previous experience... Taking the crank pulley off won't be easy.... fitment of the belt it but it was the awkwardness of the space that got my, which is why I chose to take it out of the car to change various things! :P :lol:

blueprint belt - not much. haynes manual - its not that hard to do yourself. just turn it over manually before cranking to make sure its all good and no piston and valve contact.

Cheers guys, thanks for the info

Where would be the best place to buy the kit??

Thanks again!!

Many people reckon that getting genuine Toyota parts is best but I have had no problems with these guys:

Eurocarparts.co.uk

Cheers Bud, great site...i may buy a few things now :)

My car is now of an age where im not bothered about genuine Toyota parts, patented will do... My 8 month old daughter is a money magnet, so the expensive parts are out the window from now on :)

No problem at all mate. I can't afford genuine Toyota parts but even if I could I wouldn't buy them because I think they're a rip tbh....

I have a list of other sites too, Eurocarparts have a warehouse in Bletcheley and they are very helpful with knowledgeable staff. :thumbsup: They've saved my project on a time budget more than I can count too...
