Customer Question
I need to know...

I need to know if my 2006 toyota avalon have a timing chain or belt

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Toyota. The Toyota Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

When I start my car up it make this sound like a stomping on a fan

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

I haven't decided yet. At this point it doesn't look like I will

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Toyota Mechanic should be aware of about your Toyota?

Yes. I also hear a slight clicking sound coming from my tire or front end when I am making a turn

Thank you for allowing me to help you with this concern today and am sorry to hear that this is happening. I will have to ask you a few questions so that I can get a better understanding as to what may be going on with your Avalon.

You Avalon has a Timing Chain that does not have a required change interval.

As for the clicking noise, have you had a repair shop look at your vehicle in a while? Like inspect the CV axle boots?
