    I don't like doing angled engine mounts, the shit always ends up snagging. Little fore and aft control got em lined up though.

    Looks like something that one kid would do, why buy the real thing when you can make something that looks the same for cheaper.

    ive put engines in these turds.. its not fun... and the damn timing belts just break early anyway so your stuck doing it again.

    2 of the 3 ive done were dodge factory belts that snaped at 20-30k miles

    I'm not about that life, either there's too much valve soring pressure, there's a bad tensioner design or the belts are too thin. If you ask me it needed a chain

    its a flawed design. its like the mitsubishi belts. the edges wear away till it gets to thin and snaps.

    is it possible for a timing belt (toyota belt) replaced in August 2015 and 21k miles ago needing to be replaced? Having that elusive intermittent starting issue where the damn engine cranks and starts but immediately dies or it will crank, start and die out with a rough idle. Trying to feather the pedal will just choke it out and it will die kinda like a misfire. If I wait a minute or so then try to crank it again, it will start up without an issue.

    Plug wires are going to be changed as well as plugs but after that, not sure what else other than maybe a good throttle body cleaning.

    That sounds like leaky injectors, they lose prime or flood the engine momentarily and you end up with that little gap before it works fine

    It wouldn't spin if the timing belt. You'd just hear the starter.

    totally intermittent - like maybe once or twice a month? i was thinking maybe the timing belt had lost some teeth to it or starting wearing funky. the injectors (now that I'm searching on that) sound like a very probable cause since what others are describing sounds like the behavior I'm seeing. always something, right?

    Eh, easy enough I suppose. Remove all the injectors and take them to be cleaned and flow tested. They'll check for leaks too. Then you just reinstall them and go on your merry way

    easy for you I should say, probably beyond my tinkering ability. still researching procedure - thanks for pointing me in that direction, definitely sounds familiar.

    No prob, of all the things to have to work on on the engine those aren't too terrible. Good opportunity to clean the throttle body and intake plenum.
