Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I think $750.00 is very high.  Also, don't have any problems with the car, always do required maintenance by the book. Should be able to go longer without this expense. Just need to know if I can wait and put on more miles. $750.00 is a lot!

seen 'em go 150,000, but the tensioner and tensioner bearing will wear out...then cause the thing to track off perhaps a couple of degrees...will be loose if you grab and shove it...so there are cheaper then the price...bake him a chocolate cake...show up and say 300 cash is all I got~

...dog it, look at these prices...one's like 47 bucks...something tells me there IS a discount price~ figure ONE hour job at 80 an hour stretch it out with the tensioner and bearing~...dammit, look at these prices...you get everything plus a water pump too~ https://www.google.com/? gws_rd=ssl#tbm=shop&q=2000+Toyota+Camry+tensioner+and +bearing
