Question about 1999 Toyota RAV4
My timing belt broke on my 1999 Toyota Rav4 4wd, do I need to have the head redone?
That Can Only Be Determined After Replacing the Timing Belt Or Removing the Head, It has Been MY Experience that About 20% DO Have Valve Damage. This is Aftet MY 30 Years As A Mech/Tech. I Normaly Advise Customer Of the Chances And R&R Timing Belt and as I Say Toyota Is Better than Honda About NOT Tapping Valves when jumping Time.

Some engine's are interference engine's which can cause damage to valves. That's why manufacturers have maintenance schedules to prevent future problems but moving parts can break outta schedule.
If your mechanically inclined it's very easy to change a timing belt. YouTube videos are available to watch on YouTube. I recommend watching Richpen06
