      I happily paid the Toyota dealer to do this on my GX a couple years back... I was definitely not in the mood to DIY the leaky boots on both axles.

      This has been my life the last 4 days.

      My parts manager ordered the wrong part for me(not the tensioner I needed, that was not in the “ultimate Tbelt kit”) so the actual tensioner won’t be in until Wednesday or something.

      I am back in the states tomorrow but it seems as if Alex won’t be able to do the kit until the weekend. Once I get home I hope to have a better gauge of when it will be done.

      I just ate these and they were Outstanding



      If anyone has the ability, I HIGHLY recommend spending some time at Rosewood Mayakoba just north of Playa Del Carmen. It is a top notch property with nothing but great support and wonderful views and waters.

Lo and behold, I found a 2001 S4 with 221,xxx miles on it just outside of Atlanta. It looked super clean for the miles and after checking the (clean) Carfax, my assumptions were correct, it had been a SoCal and Southern car its entire existence. The car has a couple of issues that are to be expected from a car of this vintage and miles. It has a coolant leak from somewhere. It needs tires. The windshield washer system doesnt work. the Coolant temp sensor acts up occasionally, and it needs a battery, but the guy was asking 2k for it so I figured, with how clean it looked and the price, I really couldnt go wrong. Called a tech friend of mine who is big in the B5 world and asked him if it **** the bed would he buy it for parts and he happily accepted. I had our local Atlanta resident check it out for me today and gave it a big ole thumbs up.
      Awesome find for 2k! and that's really cheap for a fairly clean B5 S4...Much like E36 M3's these are starting to rise in value.

      Couple things. The washer system likes to leak, and often the nozzles become misaligned as they mount under the edge of the hood. That means they wont spray on to the hood. You can try to realign them, but its often easier just to replace them. Also the headlight washers almost surely wont work and should just be disconnected, as they will also leak.

      Coolant leaks will happen... There are tons of small plastic pipes and fittings that will leak overtime as seals degrade, especially if some parts are disconnected and replaced piecemeal. Ask me how I know on my B6 A4.... Best thing to do is replace all the parts you can find all at once.

      As far as keeping it going, my best advice is don't go too hard on it.... That's when you will risk blowing turbo's, coolant lines, etc, etc. The engine core is pretty damn strong, but the other issues of the 2.7T are well known.

      With the mileage, a can of engine restore along with full synthetic oil changes cant hurt. With that kind of mileage the thickness of the restore will probably help compression and seals a bit, even if the effect is temporary.

      The good thing about these vehicles is that most parts for them are DIRT cheap now.. Control arm kits are $120, coolant pipes, sensors etc, are usually $20 or less. given the age of the car, Id go with Chinese aftermarket parts unless its something super difficult and time consuming to change.

      Hope you have a good time with it!.

      Well, did you? Where are the pics?

      You're right, that does look really good! Is that pickled onions? I've never had those, but it might even make onions palatable for me.

      $2,000 in food and drink for four days doesn't seem that crazy when the hotel room is $2,000 per night.
