Question about 1999 Toyota RAV4
I have a 99 Toyota Rav4. The place where I get my oil changed says I should replace my timing belt for $500. I have 134,000 miles on the car. Now I'm looking online to educate myself and CarTalk says since I have a non-interference engine, I can risk it and not replace it as long I don't mind being stranded somewhere, and another site says I have a timing CHAIN and I should not replace it unless my car is acting up. The owner's manual in the car is for another year (I bought the car used so go figure). What's the right answer? THANK YOU!
The factory wants the belt changed at 90,000 miles, u are living on borrowed time, if the belt breaks it can damage the crankshaft position sensor and that is more money, $500.00 is a little high shop around some more for a better prive $400 is reasonable, it is a gravy job as we say..
