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 there are cheaper then the price...bake him a chocolate up and say 300 cash is all I got~

5,305 it, look at these'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 get everything plus a water pump too~ gws_rd=ssl#tbm=shop&q=2000+Toyota+Camry+tensioner+and +bearing


It's easy when u have the right tools,people thought I could not do it but they all ain't dirt that night when I drove by. Look check out the repair guides after checking them out a few times you'll develop that courage is being needs to seek,attack and Destroy good luck.
