Question about 1992 Toyota Pickup
I have a 1992 toyota 4-wheel drive pickup with 85,000 miles. Everyone keeps telling me to replace the timing chain.I have only done routine maintenance, oil changes, ect., and have had no problems with the truck. What is your opinion? Thanks, Steve.
You should replace the timing chain every 60-80,000, but if you are like me, I have 300,000 and never changed it. It is all about preventive maintenance. If I had a double overhead cam or something I would have changed it.I have seen timing chains go at 20,000. That's a choice that only you can make. Timing chains break without warning, so a new one is always nice , but personally, I think they just scare you into buying a chain every so many miles, so that you buy another one.Money grab. Good luck

try cleaning the mass air flow sensor they get dirty and the truck will loose power and could also idle rough after removing it and cleaning remove battery post then try it for power

Replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles.
It will not damage the motor (bend the valves) if it breaks or jumps time
Finally, if you do change the belt, make sure that the water pump is inspected very close for any evidence of coolant seepage at the impeller shaft weep hole. If there is ANY evidence of wetness or leakage, replace the pump then. Easier to change the pump when the belt is off, than to have to do the whole job if the leak gets worse, and, if it leaks down the road, coolant on the timing belt will damage the belt, and you will have to buy a new belt, too. Change the plugs at 90 K miles, too.

Be sure to replace all the gears, tensioners, guides and seals if your going to replace the chain. Perhaps the water pump as well if it hasnt been replaced in a while. Sounds like alot of work with that many miles unless the engine has good compression on all cylinders and the head is in good shape as well. You might consider finding another engine if you plan on keeping this truck for a while. By the time you do all the work and pay for all the parts to do the timing chain, you could find a low mileage engine for a few bucks more as long as its tested for compression and has documented miles on it.

SOURCE: need to replace broken lug bolt
If you have room behind the broken lug you can usually drive it out with a good smack of a sledge hammer. To re-install, use a stack of washers between the nut and flange and draw the lug into position. (plenty of oil on threads to avoid galling)
