Toyota Repair/Wow!!


You are a Toyota expert and you can't even time a 7AFE engine?  Can you say MORON?  I can.  Don't call yourself an EXPERT if you can't do that simple task.  Are you an expert lube tech?  That I can believe.  Definitely NOT an expert toyota tech ... I teach the toyota TPAT program and you are a low rate hack, at best .... leave the real work to the professionals.  You are the reason that real techs get a bad rap.

I don't recall telling anyone that I don't know how to time a 7AF-e engine, maybe you have me confused with someone else, it's possible that I rejected your question, that is my decision,  out of more than 10,000 questions I have answered here over the past 12 years yours is only the second one that drew this kind of response, I would also suggest to you that you look at my past answers and ratings before calling me names, HAVE A GREAT DAY!
