Spot the problem...

Recommended Posts

So my car is currently on stands and the engine is being taken to bits. Finally found the culprit today! It wasn't the aircon like I first thought. Can you see the problem?


Oh and its not the oil leak...


and to those that already know please don't spoil it. No one has managed to work it out so far. I want to see if Actual Celica lovers can spot it.

Sometimes there are two different belts available for the same engine - with AC / without AC.


Someone ordered the wrong part?   :think:

Yeah I suppose if they ordered the first belt they came across and then just went f##k it and fitted it anyway. I can't see any other way unless there is some crazy routing going on. Would like to see if the rest is right.

nope there are two belt sizes. So the belt shredded on mine and I thought the AC was as fault cause every time i turned the AC on it would make a noise. The only spare belt i had available was an AC delete so put that on s I thought the AC was the issue anyway. Look at the crank pulley carefully... I have attached a picture of a new one. can you see the difference yet?

You've shown the back of the new one so I can't compare, but I'm guessing you have a misalignment (probably what shredded the belt) and it's down to the rubber for the dual mass pulley coming unstuck. If you've tried checking timing like this, it's probably miles out.


Don't go for a solid pulley, as some do, or crank failure may well follow.
