Keep in Mind, on the 2004 4Runners, if you have a V6, there is no timing belt. On the V6, it has a timing chain which are known to last much, much longer. Unless you frequently tow or put an extraordinary amount of strain on your engine, you may not ever need to replace it.

Thanks for your post, Steven. I just called two dealers in San Diego. One charged me $239.95 to replace it. At the other dealer, the technician told me the same thing you mentioned: No need to replace the Timing Chain.
Thanks

The normal service table calls for replacement of your timing belt at 90,000 miles. This job should take about 3.5-4 hours and the parts should be in the $50-150 range.

1995 accord timing belt schedule


If the timing belt has been replaced recently, a mechanic can inspect it taking the cover off, and tell you, that won't cost big money.

If it has been replaced 50K miles ago it wont be possible to know.

If the car has 114K miles, I suggest taking it to a mechanic and replacing the timing belt.

Does the V6 have to change a timing belt?


I assume you are talking about the 3.0L V-6...The answer is YES. The timing belt needs to be replaced every 60,000 miles. I also recommend replacing the water pump, the cam seals, the crankshaft front seal, and the timing belt tensioner and idler pullies while you are in there. It will cost a little more, but it will keep you from having to go back in there for another 60.000 miles. The timing belt will have to be replaced again if any of these parts fail.

How many years or miles should a timing belt be changed on a 2000 V8 Tundra ?


Replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles or 10 years. Considering it is already 11 years old, replace it now. Warning: This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks you will have serious internal engine damage. The water pump is also driven by the cam belt so it is advisable to replace it at the same time you replace the cam belt in order to save labor cost later on when the pump fails. The pump will not last 180,000 miles so replace it now.

When should a get the timing belt replaced?


It is critical that you replace the cam belt at 90,000 miles on the 4 cylinder and V6. Both engines are interference engines and as such if the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. The water pump is also driven by the cam belt so to save labor costs later on have the water pump replaced at the same time you replace the cam belt. Have the cooling system flushed, thermostat replaced, and a fresh supply of a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water installed. You will be good to go for another 90,000 miles.

When should you replace timing belt on Toyota Sienna van? It's a 1999 model with 210,000 kms on it and I need a new water pump. Should I replace the timing belt at the same time?


Somewhere between 90,000 mil;es and 120,000 miles you should do your timing belt. But first make sure you do not have a timg chain. If you have a timing chain, you never have to change it at all.
