1999 Tercel. Timing belt/water pump interval change?

I would like to know when to change the timing belt and water pump on a 1999 Tercel. What is the interval? My car has 208,000 KM (or 130,000 miles). Last timing belt/water pump changed at 96,000 KM (or 60,000 miles).

    Just wanted to add: does the factory spec have a calendar time limit as well? i.e. 90,000 miles or X years?

Hello tinaromano1: The factory specification are to replace the belt every 90,000 miles in severe service. I would recommend to replace at 90,000 no matter what the service would be. Keep in mind should the belt break there is always a chance engine damage may occur. Should you need further help just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

How i change water pump in a toyota siena


Very involved job, the water pump is driven by the timing belt, you have to take off the whole front of the motor. Recommend you change timing belt and pulleys too, recommended interval is 60,000 miles. Several good videos on youtube cover the process.

I have a ford escort Zx2 2000 and my water pump is leaking bad I have lost pressure when I hit my gas pedal inorder to replace my gas pump do I have to replace my timing belt as well?


If the water pump is leaking, it needs replacement. Timing belt is replaced at certain mileage intervals . You can have the belt inspected by a garage. The timing belt does not have to be changed to replace the water pump. If a timing belt is changed, then it is standard procedure to change the water pump, since the water pump is removed when replacing the timing belt.

What is importance of changing timing belt


it should be still good. the timing belt like the name say's make sure that the piston and the valves are working in the good order. if the belt brakes you pistons will hit the valves and bend them causing a major repair to do on the engine. its good to change the belt every 60000 miles or so. since yours is about 40000 miles you still have a lots of time on it. hope it helps

For 1999 Vauxhall Astra 1.6 16V timing belt replacement interval is: 60000 km (37500 miles), or 48 months (4 years). Replace also tensioner roller, (the same interval) !

My 2000 Camry XLE has 130,000 miles on it. I was thinking of changing the timing belt because I don't know if the previous owner replaced it or not, I do not want to take the chance. Can you tell me please...


Timing belt change interval is 75,000 miles.

It's time to change the T-Belt and water pump now.

Water pump is directly behind the timing belt cover.

It's best to get the water pump done at the same time.

I have a ACURA 3.5 RL with only 138000 KM and wondering if I should replaced the timing belt and water pump


If you know that the timing belt has not been changed at the regular interval or ever been changed, then YES. Also change the water pump and timing belt tensioners.
Its normal to change every 80,000 - 100,000 km

When should you replace timing belt on Toyota Sienna van? It's a 1999 model with 210,000 kms on it and I need a new water pump. Should I replace the timing belt at the same time?


Somewhere between 90,000 mil;es and 120,000 miles you should do your timing belt. But first make sure you do not have a timg chain. If you have a timing chain, you never have to change it at all.

1999 Tercel. Timing belt interval change - calendar limit?


Assume that an average driver does between 10-15K per year. If recommendation is 90K, then average change interval in years should be seven to eight years. Driving is not the only thing that causes the belt to fail...as with any rubber item, the rubber hardens over time (dry rot) and will begin to crack.
This can often be seen on old tires that have hard rubber compounds (such as perelli) cracks appear in sidewalls about an inch from wheel. Your belt is not a tire, but the rubber reacts the same way!
Some people say you can leave the timing belt on for up to 140-150K. I would never do this on anything I owned and would therefore not recommend anyone else do it. (even though it's expensive, it's less than a new engine}
