Default 1994 Camry Timing Belt

I am not a having much knowledge about auto mechanism.

Is there any chance that leaking engine oil will get in contact with
Timing Belt on 1994 Camry & cause it to break.

When I replaced my car tyres last week, the mechanic did a eye check &
found that the front of my engine is having some oil leakage. In fact it's
not dripping just seapage.
Whether this will call any problem to timing belt.
The car mileage is 125000 & timing belt has been replaced once.

on your next belt change have all the oil
seals replaced on that side of the engine.
It does not take much more work to do.

The crankshaft oil seal is right behind the bottom timing belt drive
sprocket so, although the design of the sprocket and the block face in that
area is such as to try to minimise this, oil can get on the belt, and will
degrade it slowly.

It looks like you are about due for another belt soon, so, as Robmurr says,
have both jobs done.

Think about replacing the water pump too, as that hides behind the timing
belt. It would be a good move at this mileage.

Toyota dealers in the Boston area have recently increased the price of a
timing belt replacement from $199.95 to $219.95.

Thanks,
But I was looking for an approximate estimate for entire work listed above
which includes replacing engine oil seals, water pump & timing belt.
Wht's the ballpark figure for all this work.

Just finished major servicing on a 1994 Camry four cylinder at 120,000
miles couple months ago including the items you mention.
There are a couple of other items you might want to consider having
done at the same time.
Good news, bad news. Which do you want first?
Bad news is, could run around $1,500 for everything.
Good news, in many ways the car will be better than new, in perfect
operating condition.
Rough guess, doing my own work, buying parts and special tools on the
Internet, around $750 for the following:
6/12/04: Major Servicing: 120,124 miles:
Replace: timing belt, crankshaft oil seal, oil pump oil seal, oil
pump O-ring, camshaft oil seal, idler bearing, idler tensioner
bearing, timing cover gasket set, valve cover gasket, ck valve
clearances, PCV valve, PCV valve grommet, oil cap gasket, distributor
O-ring, distributor cap, rotor, distributor packing, spark plug wires,
spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter, ck. battery, oil pan gasket,
transmission pan gasket, water pump, thermostat, radiator cap, gas
cap, differential service, engine moving control rod, accessory drive
belts: power steering pump, A/C - alternator, alternator brushes, ck.
chassis mounting bolt torque, set ignition timing
Have read more than once, the Gen. 3 Camry is the best car people have
ever owned.
Can't believe how well mine is running - highway distances, around
town, handling, braking, acceleration, smoothness, comfort,
performance - amazing.
Been using Redline complete fuel system cleaner for some time now,
adding each time fuel is added.
http://www.redlineoil.com/products_fueladditives.asp Removes
contaminants from the intake valves, improves engine breathing and
power.
Also running Mobil 1 fully synthetic lubricants in engine,
transmission, differential, power steering.
Bled the brakes regularly with Motive systems power bleeder, so that
wasn't noted on the major servicing, because the brake fluid was
already very clean.
Also like Lucas products in the engine, transmission, and power
steering. Transmission is quiet, shifts beautifully.
BTW, any mechanic should know this, but if you replace the engine oil
pan gasket you need to use new exhaust bolts, nuts and gaskets.
Also, not mentioned on my list, but also replaced the spark plug tube
seals shortly prior to major servicing.
Among my special tools is a used Burroughs belt tension gauge. Very
nice, can watch the belt tension value change as tightened. I've found
belt tension is usually guessed at, and off by perhaps 20 lbs. or
more.
Speaking of special tools, there's a cam oil seal installation tool
that makes it very simple to work in the limited room between the
camshaft and strut tower.
Final tip: very, very much easier to remove the crankshaft pulley to
access the lower bolts holding the engine support over the timing
cover.

Strongly suggested:
Don't make the mistake of trying to cut costs by using aftermarket
replacement parts.
Use only genuine Toyota parts.
An independent mechanic probably will not use all Toyota parts unless
you specifically instruct them.
