Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Did you turn the engine over by hand at least 3 times revolution when you installed the belt? Is the starter engaging but the engine just not turning ?

Is the starter engaging but the engine just not turning ?

when installing any timing belt this procedure always needs to be done to double check marks and belt tightness,

Starter is engaged I'm thinking it's the timing because I didn't rotate it enougj
Toyota Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago
