Well for the first time sense i have owned my car something broke on it and i cant drive it.

and do you know what it is, my damn accessory belt tensioner. somehow i snaped the thing in two. i dont know how it happend suddenly my power steering went i popped the hood to find my accessory belt was laying ontop of my intake manifold, yes on top, and the pull had somhow ended up near my cam gears with chunks missing out of the pully.

the actual tensioner is a solid peice of metal with a spring inside of it. it has three main parts a bottom peice which attaches to the head, a spring, and a top peice with the pully on it, there is a metal rod inbettween the two peices that goes through the middle of the spring, i snapped that in half, clean in half.

immagin my surpise....

man what a weird thing to break how the hell did this happen. :mad:

Yup.. mines toasted too, did you replace yours, or have someone else do it? if so how long did it take?

well 350 bucks later its fixed, along with a new fan because my belt destroyed it.

ahhh

i didnt get why they tried implying that 2jz is a interference motor.
I'm pretty sure they mean a 2jz with bigger valves and upgraded cams.

had one of the mechanics at my old girlfriends shop do it... took him probably... 10 minutes... and about 5 of that was getting the belt back on in the right order. Wish i would have watched him do it, but i turned around and was talking to somebody, turned back around and he already had the new on in there... i dunno how
