1994 Toyota Camry LE 2.2L 4-Cylinder Timing Belt Removal and Installation
1994 Toyota Camry Le 2.2l 4-Cylinder – Gasoline Timing Belt – Tension Spring – Torque Specifications
1. Disconnect negative battery cable. Raise and support vehicle. Remove lower engine cover. On Celica and
Camry, remove right front wheel. On all models, lower vehicle.
2. On MR2, remove right hood side panel and cruise control actuator. Remove right rear wheel. On Celica
and Camry, remove alternator from engine and secure out of way. On Camry, remove coolant reservoir
tank if it interferes with timing belt removal. Remove engine control (torque) rod from front of engine.
3. On all models, remove accessory drive belts. Using floor jack, slightly raise engine to remove weight
from right (timing belt side) engine mount at timing belt cover.
4. Remove right (timing belt side) engine mount and bracket from front of engine. Remove spark plugs.
Remove No. 2 timing belt cover and gaskets. See Fig. 1 .
5. Rotate crankshaft clockwise so cylinder No. 1 is at TDC on compression stroke. Cylinder No. 1 is front
cylinder at timing belt end of engine.
6. Ensure timing mark on crankshaft pulley aligns with “0” mark on No. 1 timing belt cover. Ensure hole in
camshaft sprocket aligns with alignment mark on camshaft bearing cap. See Fig. 2 . If hole in camshaft
sprocket is not aligned with alignment mark, rotate crankshaft clockwise one full revolution.
7. Loosen No. 1 idler pulley bolt. See Fig. 1 . Move No. 1 idler pulley outward, away from timing belt as far
as possible. Temporarily retighten No. 1 idler pulley bolt. Remove timing belt from camshaft sprocket.
8. Using Pulley Holder (SST 09213-54015) or equivalent, hold crankshaft pulley. Remove crankshaft pulley
9. Using gear puller, remove crankshaft pulley. Remove No. 1 timing belt cover and gasket. Note direction
of timing belt guide installation. See Fig. 1 . Remove timing belt guide.
10. Loosen No. 1 idler pulley bolt. See Fig. 1 . Remove timing belt from crankshaft sprocket. Remove idler
pulleys (if necessary).
1. Inspect timing belt for damaged teeth, cracking or oil contamination. Ensure idler pulleys rotate freely.
Replace components if damaged or worn.
2. Ensure free length of tension spring is within specification. See TENSION SPRING
SPECIFICATIONS table. Measure free length between from inside edges of hooked portion of spring.
Do not measure spring coils. See Fig. 3 .
3. Measure tension needed to extend tension spring to specified installed length. Replace spring if tension is
not within specification. See TENSION SPRING SPECIFICATIONS table
Revised Timing Belt Tension Spring Procedure (1992-96 Camry)
From Toyota technical service bulletin EG001-99; January 29, 1999: For 1992-96 Camry, the timing belt
tension spring procedure was revised. When replacing the timing belt on 1992-96 Camry with 2.2L, tension
spring MUST be replaced. The revised tension spring 0 (Part No. 905-7-17003) is a 13-coil design which
replaces the original 10-coil design.
1. Install No. 2 idler pulley (if removed). Install and tighten bolt to specification. See TORQUE
SPECIFICATIONS . Ensure idler pulley is clean and rotates smoothly.
2. Install No. 1 idler pulley and tension spring (if removed). Pry No. 1 idler pulley away from timing belt
area as far as possible. Temporarily tighten No. 1 idler pulley bolt. Ensure idler pulley is clean and rotates
3. Using crankshaft pulley bolt, rotate crankshaft so timing mark on crankshaft sprocket aligns with timing
mark on oil pump housing. See Fig. 4 . This will position keyway in crankshaft sprocket at 12 o’clock
4. Ensure all sprockets and idler pulleys are clean. Install timing belt on crankshaft sprocket, oil pump
sprocket, No. 1 idler pulley, and then No. 2 idler pulley in sequence.
5. Install timing belt guide with cupped side away from crankshaft sprocket and flat side toward timing belt.
Install No. 1 timing belt cover and new gasket.
6. Align crankshaft pulley key groove with key in crankshaft. Install crankshaft pulley. Install and tighten
crankshaft pulley bolt to specification.
7. Rotate crankshaft clockwise so cylinder No. 1 is at TDC on compression stroke. Ensure timing mark on
crankshaft pulley aligns with “0” mark on No. 1 timing belt cover. If reusing timing belt, ensure reference
mark on timing belt aligns with upper edge of No. 1 timing belt cover.
8. Rotate camshaft, and align hole in camshaft sprocket with alignment mark on camshaft bearing cap. See
Fig. 2 . Install timing belt on camshaft sprocket. If reusing timing belt, ensure reference mark on timing
belt aligns with the reference mark on camshaft sprocket. Ensure tension exists on timing belt between
the crankshaft and camshaft sprockets.
9. Loosen No. 1 idler pulley bolt 1/2 turn. Rotate crankshaft pulley 2 full revolutions clockwise from TDC
10. Ensure timing mark on crankshaft pulley aligns with “0” mark on No. 1 timing belt cover, and hole in
camshaft sprocket aligns with alignment mark on camshaft bearing cap. See Fig. 2 . If timing marks are
not aligned, remove timing belt and reinstall.
11. Rotate crankshaft clockwise 1 and 7/8 revolutions and align crankshaft pulley “0” mark with 45-degree
Before Top Dead Center (BTDC) mark on No. 1 timing belt cover. See Fig. 5 .
12. Tighten No. 1 idler pulley bolt to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS . Install No. 2 timing
belt cover and gaskets. Install and tighten spark plugs to specification.
13. To install remaining components, reverse removal procedure. Install all bolts/nuts on right (timing belt
side) engine mount before tightening to specification.
14. On Camry, when installing control rod and bracket on strut tower and right (timing belt side engine
mount, tighten bolts to specification in sequence. See Fig. 6 . On MR2, tighten engine mount bolts in
correct locations. See Fig. 7 . Adjust drive belts to proper tension.
