when i wash my car, or it rains, or if the car sat over nite with condensation, i can hear squeeking noises from the timing belt side of the engine after i start it up. its obvious that its moisture but since im dropping my engine out to do the clutch, timing belt, water pump, and HFHs...i wanted to know what else i should replace that can possibly get rid of those squeeking noises. is it from the idler? tensioner? name and oem part number would be nice :smile:
also should i get anything else to replace while the engine is out?

the parts i have so far (or on order) are:
~ SPEC clutch
(all oem)
~ throw out bearing
~ timing belt
~ water pump
~ thermostat
~ hfh
~ hfhoe
~ fuel filter

does your a/c work? recently my car made an annoying squeeking sound and it turned out to be the a/c pulley so i just took off the belt since i don't use a/c.

you can replace your front and rear main seal while it is out. i just did the same thing, pulled my motor out to put a new clutch in. one thing i bought a complete engine gasket kit from toyota and replaced everything i could. it cost about $280 but i think it was worth it.
