There is no real way of telling as there are cords buried in the rubber of the belt that break.Toyota says to replace it every 90,000 mi..I have seen them last longer but that would be your call.If you get it done you should also change the drive belts as they have to take them off and on anyway and you should only have to pay the parts.That is if they are original.Thanks for using fixya

DUE TO THE AGE OF CAR, TIMING BELT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REPLACE WATER PUMP, BUT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA..GAS AND OIL HAVE NO EFFECT ON TIMING BELT OR WATER PUMP.....

What is mileage to replace a timing belt on a 2004 Avalon


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

Does a 2004 Avalon with 27000 miles need the timing belt and fuel pump replaced when there have been no problems and the car has had regular maintenance at dealership?


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.

At how many miles should my timing belt be changed on my 2004 sequoia?


HI- Most manufacturers reccomend replacement at 90k, 180k, etc. Variables include other parts that may need replacing during these belt changes. Water pumps and timing belts should be purchased from the DEALERSHIP, regardless of who does work. This is proper, normal cost of maintaining your sequoia. Complete inspections and labor should be completed by mechanic familiar w/Toyota vehicles. Parts may run 150-250$. Labor depends on who ya know.- Hope this helps- Thanks- ED
