SOURCE: Toyota Land Cruiser check timimg Belt

Hi,

I am assuming that you have a series 80 diesel engine and that it has run for about 100,000 kms hence the warning light and the changing of the timing belt. Based on the instructions of its repair manual you need to "remove the grommet off from the speedometer and turn off the lamp by pushing the warning light reset switch, then replace the grommet." Alternately, you can try to reset the entire computer of the vehicle by removing the battery cables for a couple of minutes. Pls note that some car radios/head units would revert to security default (ask for a code) when power is completely removed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Recommended replacement interval for timing belt on 98 Land Cruis

Ok, here's the deal:
An accessory belt (commonly referred to as a serpentine belt or a V belt depending on application) is rubber and drives your accessories like power steering, air conditioning, etc. These are usually cheap and can be seen and replaced easily.

The TIMING BELT is also rubber, however it's job is much more critical. Basically, it times the bottom part of the engine with the top part of the engine. It is NOT seen without having to take a few things apart. It is NOT for the novice mechanic. However it is also usually not that expensive for the belt either. It's the intensive labor that's the cost factor.

Your engine is an "interference" engine. Meaning that if that timing belt breaks, then valves will contact pistons. That means ka-boom and major $$$.

You will not not a performance difference until the belt breaks. At that time it will be too late. Valves will be bent, pistons may crack, heads may be damaged.

The mileage recommendation on getting the timing belt changed is just that: a recommendation. They can last a lot longer, and sometimes not so long. As long as the belt doesn't break, you're good.

Seeing as how you've gotten twice the normal mileage out of that once belt, then I'd count your blessings and get it changed. Do I think you can get it done for less then $1500? Yes, without a doubt. Just price shop with other mechanics.

So the only question is, does your truck have any other major problems. If it's like most Toyota's, then probably not, which means it'd be worthwhile getting the timing belt done. The engine should last a long, long, time yet. Plus it's an excellent selling point if you want to ever sell that vehicle.

If you have other problems, then just wait til the belt breaks, because it will eventually, that's just how it is. At that point you can replace the valves and repair the heads and possibly pistons, or get a new or used engine to put in.

The cool thing is that while they go in and replace the timing belt, they can do a lot of other things very very cheaply, or at least, they SHOULD. For instance, they can replace that serpentine accessory belt since they have to take it off anyway. The water pump is also sitting right there.

So just be sure to ask them these options. It'll be a lot cheaper to get them all done at once, rather than waiting until they go bad and having to make a 2nd trip. For instance, get the timing belt done, and THEN finding out a month later your water pump is going bad and that they could have replaced it then...

In summary, if you like the vehicle, just get the timing belt done if it's due. And shop around and get it done reasonably. It'll be way cheaper than the head work and/or a new motor.

Land cruiser 2010 timing belt warning light ON, how can reset?


not sure if thes will work for you but try it you wont lose any thing :

turn the key on hold the odometer button in and turn the key but don't start the engine and keep holding the button for 10 ten seconds then lift your finger off the button and the number 1 should come up now this number represents 10,000 K's so what you do is keep pushing the button until you reach the desired K's you want you can go up to 20 = 200,000 K's and then you hold the button in for another 10 seconds then let go and turn the key off and turn it back on and it should be gone i know this works because I've just done it today

mmuha is right in his solution of June 27 2009. The ODO must be reading either trip a or trip b, not the total mileage, (otherwise you sit there for ages waiting for the dashes to appear).

Turn key off.
