Is it dropping any codes? Not sure if this would cause your problem but it needs to be attended to. Probably an OCV, VVT-i pulley or cam seal leak.

The trick is to put a little bit of slack on the tensioner side of the belt when you put it on. One way of doing that is to advance he exhaust valve slightly and retard the crank slightly. The...

I'd try the salvage yards for a part like that. Should be really cheap.

You have to take the timing belt off to get to the water pump. The recommended interval for the timing belt is 90k. But, like 02SDGS said, you may as well replace it while you're in there. It's a...

Once you rule about the battery, if it still doesn't crank, check the starter relay. If that's ok or you replace it and it still doesn't crank check the neutral safety switch. Put the car in neutral,...

I don't think unplugging the negative lead rather than the positive was a mistake. However, sometimes you can't look at a fuse and tell if its blown. Change the fuse and the relay. Lastly, I don't...

The leaks you are describing all sound like valve cover gasket leaks. Did you torque it down to specs and in the right sequence? Over-tightening and tightening out-of-sequence will cause a valve...

I have never heard of this problem before. But, if you are going thru pulleys like that, then I would think that it is something related to the crank itself. There is a rectangular key that fits into...

What about the water pump? When was it last changed? Sometimes when they go bad you will hear a metal-on-metal sound as the impeller wobbles inside the housing as it spins.

I've never heard of bypassing the canister. Although, I am sure that some one with enough ingenuity could figure out a way to do. But, before I go that route I'd check for loose or leaky hoses and a...

When was the last time the plugs and wires were changed. Could be either of these. Also, if your valve cover gaskets are leaking, the oil can collect in the plug valley and cause the plugs to miss....

You are absolutely right, the Toyota dealer should work just fine. Sounds like the water pump to me too.

Are you sure which seals are leaking? Since oil from the cam seals and the VVT-i pulley at the top of the engine will settle at the bottom just at the crank seal, the crank seal may not be leaking,...

You'll have to take the intake tubing and throttle body off. If memory serves me correctly you shouldn't need much more than a 10mm and 12mm socket. I used deep sockets. I'd have screw drivers handy...

Ditto! valve cover gaskets and/or VVT-i pulley. Maybe the cams seals as well.

I would tend to agree with you that it must be the gas. Although I have used lower grade octane gas in my 300 with now issues whatsoever.

2jzs don't usually need a water pump, or front or rear main seal at 100k. The cam seals and VVT-i pulley, maybe. It's just that if you are in the engine changing the timing belt for the 90k service,...

I am pretty sure they were all new OEM parts. The WP was Aisin and other parts came in Toyota packaging. They all had OE part numbers. Here is a copy of the invoice.
