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

34,655

Is there any doubt why they are called " Stealerships?"
