3.4L V6 5vz-fe Timing Belt and Water Pump Ep 4

Follow me on Instagram for truck updates. @safetydang Please read the FSM for all torque specs. In this video we change my timing belt and water pump in my 2002 Toyota Tacoma. This engine is the 5vz-fe 3.4L V6. Note check your cam seals and other seals that may need to be changed. Also if you know how to loosen the tensioner you can change them if they are bad. SST can be made or bought. Here is the thread on the topic: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st-gen-tacomas/140646-homemade-crank-pulley-tool.html http://www.tacomaterritory.com/forum/showthread.php?t=171682&highlight=crank+holder+tool Also snap-on tensioner tool can snap your lower pulley timing belt tensioner. So take the time to remove your ac pump and the other bracket. ALSO if you have red Toyota coolant continue to use RED Toyota coolant. You can only go back to red coolant if you flush the radiator.

Toyota Timing Belt Replacement (PART 1) for 3.4L V6 5VZ-FE (4runner, Tacoma, Tundra & T100)
**PLEASE READ. IMPORTANT INFORMATION** In this video we show you how to perform a Timing Belt Replacement on a Toyota 3.4 Liter V6 Engine. The 5VZ-FE engine was used for 3rd Generation 4runners, 1st Generation Tacoma's, Early Tundras and T100's. We not only show you how to replace the timing belt but we also show you how to replace all the associated parts; the water pump, both idler pulleys, the timing belt tensioner, thermostat, both cam shaft seals and the crank shaft seal. **Since we shot the video, we learned a trick from a guy local to us who's an experienced mechanic. He said he backs off the timing belt tensioner bolts a little and that gives some extra play to get the timing belt onto the #1 idler pulley. Once the timing belt is onto the #1 idler pulley, you'd just completely tighten the two tensioner bolts. I also looked back at the FSM and it instructs you to put the tensioner on AFTER the belt is on. If I would have read the FSM a little more carefully, it would have saved me some frustration. So, you could actually have the tensioner completely off the engine while installing the timing belt. ( We used this trick of backing off the the tensioner bolts a little to make getting the belt on easier and it worked great. Check out Part 2 of this video to see us use this technique. https://youtu.be/mErd7xoBS9I). **We also learned another trick for getting that timing belt on and that's removing the #2 idler pulley. The #2 idler pulley is the one in between the two cam shaft pulleys. Start with getting the belt onto the crankshaft timing gear, then route the belt up on to the water pump pulley and the #1 idler pulley (the pulley that rests against timing belt tensioner) then the cams. With the belt lined up, put the #2 idler pulley in. Supposedly this technique makes it much easier to get the timing belt on but I have not personally used this so I can't 100% vouch for it's effectiveness just yet. **We bought the timing belt kit used in this video from an Ebay seller named "aircabinman". Here's a link to the kit: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Toyota-3-4L-V6-Complete-Timing-Belt-Water-Pump-Kit /190521450224?hash=item2c5bf69ef0:m:m4Q2V_w5K7vUbSPcBeUhWfA&vxp=mtr **The other part we bought for this job was the Crank Pulley Bolt.
