Why was a timing belt/water pump service done @ 43K miles??? This is die at 90K miles!! As for the check engine light, they must have disconnected or damaged something. In order to figure out the chk engine light, you must have the computer scanned for the error code(autozone does this for free). Post the code on fixya. Bring the vehicle back for all these issues and demand them to fix it as this wasnt an issue prior!!

The coolant reserve tank is a medium for the radiator to breathe. Water passes from the radiator to the coolant reserve tank and fort.

The car might not necessarily over-heat if the coolant reserve tank is broken, but it is advisable that you replace it to enable it serve its purpose within the operations of the car engine.

Good luck.

Most timing belts last from 70000 to 120000 miles, so I really don't think you need to worry about a timing belt. If the car starts right up and doesn't hesitate or bog down when running, then the fuel pump is good as well. The only things that would require replacement at this mileage are the air filter and the inline fuel filter. Sounds like someone is out to make a fast buck or two off you.

The cabin air filter is actually pretty easy to change. Here are the steps:
  1. Set the air conditioning system to Recirculation. The case for the cabin air cannot be removed with the system in the Outside Air mode.
  2. Turn the engine off.
  3. Open the Glove Compartment
  4. unclip the damper rod on the ride side of the glove compartment. To unclip it usually it is just a squeeze tab but sometimes it is a phillips head screwdriver.
  5. The glove compartment now must be squeezed together at the rear to allow the tabs to be released. Just let the glove compartment hang down.
  6. Through the glove compartment opening, locate the filter cover and remove.
  7. Remove dirty filter and replace with the new and reverse steps 1-5 to put it back together.
Shouldnt take to long usually takes me about 5 minutes to change it.

The recommended interval to change the timing belt on your 2004 Toyota Avalon is 90,000 miles or 144,840 kilometres (KM) When you do the repair, also replace the water pump and timing belt tensioner

Any certified can replace it, it does not have to be changed by the dealer. In fact any ASE certified mechanic can do this without losing your warranty if it has one, they an also do other work as well. Normally the independent shops charge slightly less than the dealer. If it's under warrenty yo could take it in but they will charge you for it and they are not cheep.

I just take a 12v test light. the kind that looks like a sharp screwdriver with a bulb in the handle and a wire coming out the back with a clip attached to the wire, and hook the cli[p to some bare metal (which will be ground), then turn the key on and touch the tester to each side of the fuse, to see if the tester lights up on both sides. What I mean by both sides is that on the fuse itself you will see two little spots where the metal comes through and can be accessed with the sharp tip of the tester. there may be fuses that do not light up on either side, dont worry about them they are not going to be the one you are concerned about for this diagnose. but if you run accross a fuse that only lights on one side, you have found a blown fuse.
I hope this helps, and in the future for others.

They usually take a watch battery, You should be able to get one at "Batteries Plus" or some place like that.
