Starlet Cambelt?


Recommended Posts


Hi Chris,

Yes they do have cambelts - if you have a 2E engine,change at 40,000 miles ( takes about 40 mins to change) - if you have a 4E-FE,change at 60,000 miles(takes about 2 hours to change).

They will damage the valves/head if the belt "lets go" so change it sooner than later.

When replacing the cam belt, which of the following (if any) would u replace on a 4e at the same time?

Idler bearing, tensioner, water pump, Oil pump seal, camshaft seal, crankshaft seal. All of these require the cambelt cover and cambelt off, so certainly the labour cost is lower if done at the same time.

Car is 10 years old and has travelled 60,000 miles.

Many thanks.

If it's anything like the 5E engine then a snapped cambelt will NOT do any damage to the internals. The 5E is a non interference engine ( I thnk that's the term ) so nomatter what happens the pistons never meet the valves.

Either way though, for peace of mind and continued motoring bliss you should always change the cambelt if you're unsure about it.
