sprinter2burnbaby: thanks for the upload. helped me alot
rjbourassa: Hi WP. I think I'm hearing what is described in your video, but I've got a 2004 Tacoma with the 2RZ-FE 2.4L motor in it, not the 22R(*). Before I go pulling things apart to look at it, would you know if the 2RZ-FE motor is susceptible to the same timing chain guide problems you describe on the 22R in your video? Engine sounds/runs great (88K miles) other than that "rattle" when I take my foot off the gas the and RPMs drop back down. Thanks in advance for any help! rjb
bruce bacon: Thank you for this informative sequence, good dialogue, clear and easy to follow-super!
David Carbon: you're a talented teacher
k1ghz960: Thanks,WP, it does look like it would be better to remove all the front stuff and replace the timing gears and chain, I'll take a good look when I get the valve cover off. It's a 95 Truck w/ 275k miles, and I'd like to drive it another 100k, maybe an engine swap would be better. It does run good, would you know of a preferred engine dealer just in case. Thanks much again.
k1ghz960: Is it true that you can change the driver's side chain-guide without removing anything but the valve cover? I've heard that it's possible. Thanks much.
Catman Outdoors: I have a 91 yota with the 22re and last spring it started a slight rattling sound in the motor on higher throttle when not under load. It increased throughout the year and is now pretty frequent. At low idle and when punching the gas it doesn't rattle, but at higher idle (cold start) and decelerating or downshifting, it rattles. Could this be the same problem as in your video? I gave 1800 for the truck and it has over 318k miles, 267k when I bought it. is it worth the cost in labor to get that fixed? I suppose I should look for someone who specializes in toyotas to take a look at it. Would like to get some more miles out of it, I know it's a good motor.
Morgan M: Awesome and very helpful/informative video. I have a '87 and adjusted the valves as well but there is still a clacking of course. If I take of the valve cover must I replace the gasket each time? Thanks again for the good video.
Ironmike965: Awesome info. Pete ! I'm about to embark on replacing my '92 Toyota pickup timing set, and you answered most of the questions I had about it. Thanks for the high def. and well lit pictures as well. They are a great help ! Mike
Monte Overton: Thanks Pete. This video was really helpful.
v Lehr: THIS IS A REAL HELP TO ME, I PURCHASED A 1988 TOYOTA PICKUP SO I WILL PUT IN A STEEL GUID AND DOUBLEROLLER CHAIN.ON IT.GOD BLESS FOR INFO -VIC,,
John F: So you show the seller a problem, that almost every 22re Toyota truck with over 100k miles is guaranteed to have, and you use that as an excuse to lowball the seller and "get the price knocked down a bunch". Do you also beat up the seller on a non functioning 20+ year old a/c system and inform him that it is a $500+ repair at a shop? or that the seat belts are worn, no longer retract and they cost over $100 a piece? I have to give you credit for this video that helped people but you sure do have some unsavory negotiating techniques. You should work as a used car salesman.
Rachael Gustafson: Well made video, thanks for the helpful tips. I appreciate your clear speaking and to the point information. My 1984 22R does not have this marble in a box sounds but the valve cover does leak like a siv. Will check the tensioner once the cover is off.
Chad Paul: Great video. My 94 recently started making a loud pinging noise under load and my friend thought it may be the timing chain. But wouldn't it make the sound always or would it do it just under load? Also the noise started right after turning on the heater, not sure if that was a coincidence. It does have 250,000 miles on it.
Ben Richer: We are trying to diagnose my uncles 22re. I did a tune up and valve adjustment, and it quieted down, but under load, we hear a clack clack clack. i suspect its the tensioner/guides.
Brandon Hamilton: Very thorough and informative videos Pete. I appreciate them.
Raymond Deza: Never mind the dislikers This is a good post. Thanks a lot! -rad4runner@yotatech
abcfisher1: When replacing the timing cover only, where exactly is the hidden bolt?
Chris Pease: i am rebuilding a 1994 22re 4x4 and everything is done I'm just at the last part of the engine. originally was sitting for 10 ten years and so I'm fixing it for a friend and he said it needed new gas tank put in. so once new tank was in we started it and it blew white smoke so we took it apart to change head gasket but it turned out to be multiple issues. long story short its all done except for timing. we put new guides in along with both timing gears. with the haynes book it says to read the tag on inside of the hood to find the correct degree to set the cylinders at I'm pretty sure. but the tag isn't there because its an aftermarket hood with no tags and so it won't start but we slowly advance the timing but i was told that if u advance it too much it can potentially hurt the engine without knowing the right degree mark. but my friend said if it's an interference engine then u don't have to worry about it but i read some people say it is and it isn't. what degree is the timing supposed to be set at. then after that its a matter of adjusting the distributor. please help!!!
