Question about 2005 Toyota Highlander
The timing belt is due for replacement on my 2005 Highlander ( Kluger in Australia). Looking at the timing belt cover it appears that the belt only runs at the top of the engine and does not run down to the crank shaft pulley. Is this correct? nd if this the case, would it be difficult to replace.
Thanks for your time,
The timing belt runs from the crankshaft pulley up to the head, around the cam gears, back down, over the water pump and back to the crankshaft. Timing belt replacement is a job that is time consuming, and, at times, difficult. If you do not have the proceedure, I can send it to you, but, this is a very specific job, and having the belt incorrect in any one of 6 possible "mistake" positions will result in a no-start or run poor condition. Timing belt replacement for that vehicle is recommended at 90,000 miles.
