Question about 2005 Toyota Highlander

Toyota Highlander 2005

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,
Peter

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.

2005 toyota kluger alternator problem


Possibly - get your hands on a multimeter and see what voltage is at the battery terminal firstly with the car not started your battery could also be dead if it has dropped a cell it will read under 12-12.5 volts. Then check when the car is running if it is under 13V say 12-12.5 then it is your alternator. Otherwise if there is healthy voltage 13.5+ then the alternator is good and your problem lies elsewhere.

I have a 2005 Toyota Highlander V6 2WD. The car is due for a service (90K). The dealer quoted $340.00 for the service and suggested replacement of the timing belt for an additional $400. 1. Doesn't a...


I guess all services you need is replacement of filters, Oil, spark plugs if not recently changed
Belt replacement is worth at 90K, but price is too high! check this link: http://shop.autopartsfair.com/store/?N=11801+4294962486+1725+9318
it requires one hour work! or even less
other than this, if you have a service light on, either remove battery pole for a while to reset it, or ignore it and will disappear wft. some time!!!

When should spark plugs be changed? I have 80,000 Kilometers on the Toyota highlander and they have never been changed.


I am in Australia and so am unfamiliar with the highlander, it sort of looks like our landcruiser.
Look in your owners manual to see what type of spark plugs your car has, if thet are platinum plugs they need to be replaced every 100,000 Kms or 5 years, If they are standard plugs they require replacement every 40,000 Kms or 2 years, I hope this helps
