How many miles?
you'll need two people for this.
open the oil filler cap and under it you will see a cam shaft
have someone try and start the car and the cam shaft should move. if it doesnt you probly have snapped your timing belt. get a new one put on and your good to go

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.

Do you have to change the water pump when changing the timing belt/timing?


You don't have too, but not bad idea, the timing belt drives the water pump, if you just replace timing belt, and not water pump, water pump could go out and mess up the timing belt, now it has to be done all over again, timing belt, water pump and labor.

it sounds like you might have a fuel problem. Start by checking the fuze for the feul pump to see if it is corroded or broken. You might also want to try changing the feul filter.

2004 KIA Optima LX timing belt/water pump


The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

01 civic timeing belt went, are the valves ok?


It is an interference engine and I always change the water pump when I replace timing belts because it's cheap insurance and you don't want to go there again if it goes out in a couple of months after you replace the timing belt.

Engine starts, but won't stay started unless I step on the gas.


It sounds like to me your mechanic recommened you change your timing belt and water pump due to a maintance issue. If vehicle still runs good with old timing belt new belt wont change running. Cold weather and low cranking amps (poor battery) will cause starting problems.
