TIMING BELT

1989 Toyota Camry • 186,000 miles

Daughter was driving car, had been driving rough, stopped at stop light, just died, turn key, nothing. All other power works, I am thinking it is timing belt. ? From one to ten. How hard to change? Cost of belt only $22, worth doing self? Thanks. Mike

The timing belt can be tricky to replace if you haven't done one before. Make sure you get a good repair manual that shows all the timing mark points for the engine.

NOTE: If the belt broke, it will sound very odd when cranking it.
