Asked by Oct 21, 2014 at 10:26 AM about the 2002 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Dealer says cost is $850 labor, $2 - $300 parts...
It is making a low level clicking noise .. does this need to be serviced? I have put 130 miles on it since noise started. Dealer says no hurry put within 1000 miles have work done.
What is likely truth?
Car has 180,000 mostly highway miles...

All things considered, I recommend that you find an independent garage or mechanic to do the work. Labor should be half of the dealership. As for parts google Advanced Auto Parts coupons. You'll save a lot. Or you can drive it on till the tensioner brakes.

You can but the entire chain... tensioner... and everything for $154 form http://www.dashzracing.com/01-08-Toyota-Camry-2-4-Dohc-16V-1Azfe-2Azfe-Timing-Chain-Kit.html so that figure is double for parts
