Take a peek in your timing chain, if its still there and tensioned, if it is,then that shouldnt be it, look for some other posible cause. i havent had any situation that a timing chain jumped into the next teeth. I assume that you got a 4 cyl 22r engine.

High pitch noise from under hood when i start my 2005 toyota 4 runner. The noise stops after about 30 seconds. sounds like a turbo charger spooling up but i dont have one.


You could remove the serpentine belt and see if the noise continues, then check each component one at a time.
You describe a slipping belt because the alternator pulls hard for the first few seconds after you start the engine.

Timing belt or timing chain?


You 98 Corolla has a timing chain that it internal and need no normal maintenance. It uses a hydraulic/spring tensioner to keep things tight and as long as its quiet, everything is fine.
Your drive belt (not to be confused with a t. belt) is the external belt you see on the passenger side of the engine. It drives you alt, water pump, A/C and power steering. It uses a spring loaded tensioner to keep the belt tight. These can weaken over time and cause a rattle noise and belt slippage.

Hi robrtsn,
As you forgot to say what the engine is in your 4-Runner....I'll give you the rule of thumb....if you have a timing chain in your engine, you'll need to check it only if it becomes noisy....If you have a timing belt, the manufactures recommend that it's replaced every one hundred thousand kilometers.....thats about sixty five thousand miles.... I believe that the later vehicles...(those with the electronic odometer fitted) have been extended to one hundred and fifty thousand, but to be on the safe side, I'd replace at one hundred thousand, especially with the number of sub standard parts that are available on the market these days....

Hope that's a help

Best regards Johngee10
