I am helping a friend whose 1999 4-cylinder Camry just started a making really loud knocking, diesel-like noise. It also sounds like the timing belt is flapping against the inside of the timing belt cover. I took the timing belt cover off and found that there is 1.25 inches of free play in the belt. I don't know enough about this engine type (nor does the manual indicate) to know if this is okay. I have a picture showing the free play at http://www.dnsppp.net/nmills/camry
Thanks in advance.
have the same problem?
