Customer :

hi Billy we are not sure that you have sent the correct info. can you recheck please - on your info sheet under REPAIR TIMES-HRS it says picnic 2.2D turbo 1996-02 our car is not a pinic it is a toyota lucida estima 1997 P reg as quoted in my first question and on the diagram of the timing belt "G" is our timing tensioner not "T" please can you recheck hoping to hear from you soon As far as payment is concerned we want to pay and will. we didnt pay yesterday as we have 6 kids we are trying to fix the car and also rescued a friend with a broken motorbike so we were very busy we await your prompt reply thankyou .Sarah and Anthony.

Billy :

Hello!

Billy :

You can take your time, and ask all the info you need on the matter...

Billy :

However, the info for timing belts are categorized by engine codes....and not vehicle names....

Billy :

As vehicle names vary from one country to another.....however, the engine code....means that this is the same engine....

Billy :

You, as i remember should have the 3CT-E engine....

Billy :

And the info was posted accordingly..........

Billy :

In all cases, the 2.2 diesel turbo engine this model on toyota, all have the same marks.....the ones indicated in diagram...

Billy :

So check thoroughly and get back to me if needed......

Customer :

on the diagram the tensioner is located next to the cam shaft this is not the case on our vechile the tensioner is located next to the crankshaft and it is on an eccentric cam with a nut and a pin dowel sticking out of the tensioner, also the tensioner has 2 holes drilled in it and has not got a visible spring , spring is located behind the tensioner with a slotted groove to adjust the tension.

Customer :

hello it says you have stepped out of this chat are you still available

Billy :

There must 've been some connection problems...

Billy :

I got the tensioner issue...you told me about it earlier.....however the timing marks on camshaft, pump and crankshaft are the same....

Billy :

If you have other problems....get back to me........and if you wish i can even opt out, and re list the question so other experts take a look.....

Billy :

Good luck for now...

Billy :

Regards,

Billy :

Billy

Customer :
