Question about 1995 Toyota Camry
First one was done at 60,000 miles and oil is always changed at 3,000 miles and we are gentle drivers.
Its now showing 121,000 and we wonder if we can safely streach it a bit longer and not risk it snapping.
Also, our thermostat is stuck open and it doesnt heat up much in the cold.
That prob hurts mileage and creates carbon? We want to do both at same time
The belt can last more than 60,000 miles but just to be on the safe side you should replace as soon a possible. Some vehicles like the Acura Legend timing belt is guaranteed for 90,000, however remember if there are oil leaking from any seal inside the cover the belt may break. Also if the water pump is leaking that may also shorten the life of the belt. You should change the belt , tensioner seals and water pump when you do this job. You may have it for another 100,00 miles.

Prolly helps mileage and reduces carbon... but system has its design to work hotter than you are running it ...*alas the smog wizards......you didnt hear it from me but yes you can stretch the timing belt a little assuming you changed it to a quality aftermarket or dealer part...(they have built in life expectancy though, even if no adverse heat or oil or other compromising conditions may have existed during its life....good luck
