6 cd's stuck in a 2004 toyota avalon
Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.
You either have one of several problems.
1) You are using a home-made CD, and the unit is not recognizing it
2) A CD is severly scratched and the unit is not recognizing it
3) The unit has lost its memory of the CDs in the magazine
What you can do:
The radio may just need to be rebooted. That process involves the radio to be removed from the dash, and the unit's wire connectors removed for 5 minutes (do this only if you are skilled in disassembling the dash). After removal, and 5 minutes, plug the wiring connectors back in, turn the key on, and hit the eject button. If the CDs slide out, you are good to go. If not, the unit will need a professional repair techinican.
Thanks for choosing FIxYa today.

Can't open hood
try smacking the hood at one of the front corners while someone else
pulls the release handle. or even after you've pulled on it. if that
works, once open, adjust and lubricate the hood latch assembly. if it
still won't open, and
it's the cable and not the latch you'll have to replace it anyway, so
instead of removing the grill, cut the cable behind the pull lever
under the dash where you can reach it. then skin the outer cable
insulation away from the actual steel cable exposing an inch or two of
it. then holding the insulation and plastic housing with pliers, grab
the steel cable itself with pliers and pull it to open the hood. then
replace the cable. the further you can reach up under the panel the
better your chances of getting past the broken part of the cable and
avoid removing the grill. you might also be able to gain access from up
under the car if you're lucky.

How often oiol change on
If you have an extended warranty that requires a certain schedule, follow that. Otherwise, per the testing that Consumer Reports did a few years ago, six months/6000 miles is fine. Shops want you to come in at three months/3000 miles, but based on long-term (60000 miles) wear testing that they did on multiple cars (NYC cabs), there was no difference in wear between 3000 mile and 6000 mile intervals.

What is mileage to replace a timing belt on a 2004
Typically any timing belt replacement interval is 60k-75k miles. The book will however tell you 90k. Now it depends on what engine your Avalon came with. The 3.0 is a non interference engine meaning if it does snap, it will not cause any damage to your engine. The 3.5L engine however i dont know if its a interference engine or not but i dont see anywhere where it says it is. As always suggested, change your water pump as well, as it runs off the timing belt. Once i didnt change the water pump and a week later it locked up on me and ruined my perfect new timing belt. Truth be told :) lol

Pull on the belt to see the tensioner pulley move put a wreanch on the nut holding the pulley on and pull the tensioner back as now the belt is loose slip it off the easiest pulley to grt to. work the belt off the reat of the pulleys and work the new one back on till you getr back to the easy one pull back on the tentioner and slip the belt over the easy pully letting loose of the tenstioner will keep the belt tight.
