Question about 2000 Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

Timing Belt My dealer keeps telling me that I should replace the timing belt on my 2000 Toyota Avalon XLS. It has less than 50,000 miles and is kept in a garage. When I do drive it I am in constant fear of breaking down. I am told that the age of the car means the belt has deteriorated. I am 81 and I can't take the stress of not knowing if I will break down on the next trip to the grocery store.

Should be replaced due to age. Just remember a new car can break down any time as well.

Just want to know if I have to change the timing belt on my 1997 Avalon XLS with 63,350 original miles (always used Premium gasoline and Mobil 1 oil) and if the belts is changed, does the water pump need...


DUE TO THE AGE OF CAR, TIMING BELT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REPLACE WATER PUMP, BUT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA..GAS AND OIL HAVE NO EFFECT ON TIMING BELT OR WATER PUMP.....

When do you change the timing belt? Mine has 104,000 miles


It depends on which type of motor you have; if it is an interference motor, it should be changed every 60,000 to 70,000 miles. You can write down your vin # and call the dealer to find out. You may also consider changing the water pump if it's driven by the timing belt, as the belt has to be removed for the changeover.

What is mileage to replace a timing belt on a 2004 Avalon


Typically any timing belt replacement interval is 60k-75k miles. The book will however tell you 90k. Now it depends on what engine your Avalon came with. The 3.0 is a non interference engine meaning if it does snap, it will not cause any damage to your engine. The 3.5L engine however i dont know if its a interference engine or not but i dont see anywhere where it says it is. As always suggested, change your water pump as well, as it runs off the timing belt. Once i didnt change the water pump and a week later it locked up on me and ruined my perfect new timing belt. Truth be told :) lol

Does a 2004 Avalon with 27000 miles need the timing belt and fuel pump replaced when there have been no problems and the car has had regular maintenance at dealership?


Most timing belts last from 70000 to 120000 miles, so I really don't think you need to worry about a timing belt. If the car starts right up and doesn't hesitate or bog down when running, then the fuel pump is good as well. The only things that would require replacement at this mileage are the air filter and the inline fuel filter. Sounds like someone is out to make a fast buck or two off you.

Concern with the timing belt 1997 toyota avalon xls


The maintenance interval is 60,000 miles, but they usally last quite a bit longer before they fail.
This is a non-interference motor , meaning the valves will not hit the pistons if the belt brakes.

Does the timing belt need to be changed?


There is no real way of telling as there are cords buried in the rubber of the belt that break.Toyota says to replace it every 90,000 mi..I have seen them last longer but that would be your call.If you get it done you should also change the drive belts as they have to take them off and on anyway and you should only have to pay the parts.That is if they are original.Thanks for using fixya
