How To Replace a Serpentine Belt - EricTheCarGuy
Replacing a Serpentine Belt - EricTheCarGuy
I've had more than one request for this, the other day I had one come in
and was happy to make the video for it. This is a fairly easy one compared
to some that I have had to deal with, just work smart and have the right
tools and you will be fine. Remember the longer the tool the better the
leverage and that you should check to make sure you have the correct belt
before you try and install it.

2005 Toyota Camry V6: How to Replace the Spark Plugs (and Air Filter)
This video shows you the basics of replacing the spark plugs in a 2005
Toyota Camry V6 engine. This job is not for the weary. Approximate time of
completion for DIYers: 6 hours.
1) 1/4 ratchet
2) 3/8 ratchet
3) 5/8 spark plug socket (this special socket has a grommet inserted into
it for the removal of spark plugs)
4) 10mm socket (1/4 & 3/8)
5) 14mm socket (1/4)
6) 8mm Allen (3/8)
7) 6mm Allen (3/8)
8) 6-inch extension (3/8)
9) 6-inch extension (1/4)
10) 12mm short wrench
11) 14mm short wrench
12) Shop towels (throw-away) for cleanup
1) Always unplug the battery's negative terminal before doing any work on
your engine - especially electrical work.
2) I used a jack underneath the car to raise it approx. 10 inches for
easier access (and to save my back).
3) Covering the battery and intake area (front-right of engine compartment)
with a large work towel will give you a great place to put your tools and
4) Purchase anti-seize compound (lube) and Dielectric grease before
starting (both are shown in video).
5) Spark plugs are "gaped" from the factory for you - there is no need to
change the spark plug gap. If they are not gaped for you, the gap is: 0.043
6) Using medical gloves (as seen in the video) allow you to keep your hands
clean of dirty engine parts.
I am not a mechanic, so excuse my terminology of parts (I intermittently
exchange "manifold" with "throttle body" in some parts of the video and the
long plastic tubes in the spark plug shafts are called, "coil packs."
I made this video for my reference only. I take no responsibility for
anyone using this video and, in doing so, rendering their car useless. Use
common sense when working under the hood of any car.
SafetyDang Tv Timing Belt and Water Pump Ep 4
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:
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.

Refill cooling system with Toyota Long Life coolant and mix 50/50 ratio.
Clean the idle air control valve (IACV), throttle body, intake plenum and
EGR before re-assembling.
Have a friend hold up the rear wiring harness when removing or installing
the rear valve cover or tie it to the wipers.
Label all electrical and vacuum connections.
Freeze spark plug tube seals and use a heat gun to warm the valve cover
before pressing the seal in.
