My 1998 Toyota Avalon XLS squeals loadly when I start the engine and the fan is on in the car. I turn of the fan and it stops. After driving I turn the fan back on and don't get the squeal anym


Almost certainly one or more of the drive belts (not the timing belt) on the engine needs an increase in tension. It may tell you about this in the owner's handbook.

If not you can either ask a mechanic to do this straightforward job for you, or try it yourself. You can download a zipped service manual from here

and look these belts up in the charging section and steering section.

Dealer says that I need to replace right rear strut. Noise generated when going over a rough road. The dealer cost is 700.00. This sounds high to me. I've changed struts on vw's before. Is it...


This is in the realm of DIY but you will definitely need a spring compressor if this is in fact a strut-type assembly. The coil springs are under a great deal of tension and disassembling them without the compressor can be lethal. It is known that Toyota parts and service can be costly but if you intend on doing your own service, I highly recommend you invest ~$25 in a service manual for your car. These can be had on line:

or at auto parts stores.

97 avalon How to replace rear struts without compressing coil springs. Do it yourselfer w/o proper tools


The only way to do this job without spring compressers is to buy the entire assembly with the coil springs and change out the entire strut.This is NOT a job to be tried unless you have the right tools.These things can put a world of hurt on you and can send you to hospital if you don't take care! YOU MUST compress the coil springs,you will never get them on the new struts if you don't. Try your nearest rental place maybe they have a set.Please be carefull and good luck.
