  1. yeah i also see in the factory manual says that if the plunger is not released from the hook i can use the slipper to push on the plunger to release it, just i will turn the engine clockwise if this doesn't release the tensioner, i will do a little be anti clockwise and clockwise and for the anti clockwise turn i will use the crack pully notch with degrees markings on the timing chain cover there is three marks on the timing belt cover "0,|,10" i will align the notch between 0 and 10 and then turn it clockwise after all of that i will check for the timing by setting the crank pully notch at DT
  2. i have Toyota Avensis 2008 T25 (3ZZ-FE 1.6L),i'm planning to change timing chain tension because it's leaking and i know i can change only the o-ring but i will change the tensioner for prevent maintenance and i saw youtube video for the procedure and after the installation they crank the engine clockwise ONLY while i checked on the service manual says crank the engine counterclockwise like for few degrees at least 10 degree and then turn it over clockwise so i don't know what to do, do like the manual says or just crack it clockwise and it will release itself. please anyone replaced this
  3. Okay, i will check but it seems like no obvious leak right now as this hit happened for about two months ago, i guess if there a crack it'll be an obvious leak and i know the transmission looks that is leaking but that's an old leak from the inner cv boot

  6. Today i changed the gear oil while i'm filling my transmission i found something like very fine black particle or sediments swimming with the oil this stuff only shown when i'm trying to get last drop of oil from the bottle but when the bottle is full of oil and filling the transmission, the oil is crystal clear, i don't know, Is that normal? Hint: the bottle is black i don't know, Is that from the plastic of the bottle ? the date on the bottle is 3/19 i guess is not old Type of gear oil is: Meguin 75W-90 API GL4+
