Change timing belt ep70 -87

Recommended Posts

Hello,

since I just aqquired my starlet I am quite keen to have the timing belt changed. Should I change the waterpump at the same time?

Do you recommend some specific brand? Also is this something I can do myself or should I let a workshop do it?
 

Also if there is some other general maintenance that you would recommend, I would greatly appreciate it :)

 

Thanks :)

If its a 2E engine the water pump is not driven by the timing belt, so it can be changed separately depending on the mileage.

I would recommend a timing belt by Continental, and ofcourse change the rollers aswell. You can also check if the crankshaft seal on the that side of the engine is still dry, if it is wet get a new one from the Toyota dealer.

hmm how can I know which engine it is? Its a Toyota starlet 1987 1.3 DX 

Is it difficult to change by oneself?
