Question about 2005 Toyota Matrix

I've looked in the service manual but can't find the mileage replacement for the timing belt on a 2005 Toyota Matrix. I thought it might be 60k but want to be sure.

2005 toyota matrix running lights don't work


Hi Kolby, I guess you've checked the fuses? They are normally inside the cabin and behind the small locker for licences and small change. If the instrument panel lights are also defective that is where I suggest you look. If that is not the problem they are operated via a relay, which may have become defective. Regards 'John

When should i change the timing belt on my kia sorrento 2005 i have 53k miles it runs great.


The recommended replacement interval in 60k miles for normal service, less for severe duty. Its not like the belt is going to fail at exactly 60k miles so if you go over it's ok. Having said that the engine in your Kia is an interference engine. What that means is that if the belt does fail it very likely to be expensive. A rebuild at least and more probably an engine replacement.

In an interference engine when the belt fails there is not enough room between the still moving pistons and the suddenly still valves so the piston destroys the valves and usually itself.

So just play it safe, when you get 60k miles schedule the replacement.

How many miles until routine parts need replacing.


The owners manual will have factory recommended service intervals based on mileage. I would sugest a new timing belt and waterpump, based on mileage. A local Toyota dealer call tell you what services are required at this mileage. Most other parts just work until they break. Do the maintenance it is much cheaper in the long run.

The Maintenance Req indicator light is on. The car is a 2005.


That's a mileage-based indicator that is there to remind the driver that, based on the mileage on the car, some service interval has arrived. It's NOT a signal that there's been a fault or failure. Being that you have a Toyota, the typical timing service interval is every 60k miles (replacement if you have a belt, inspection if you have a chain). At that interval, the water pump, thermostat, accessory belt(s), spark plugs, timing tensioner (for a belt), and all fluids and filters are typically replaced, as well as an inspection of the brakes and suspension, and a tire rotation. It's a costly service but it's important. That's probably why your light has illuminated. Take a look in your owner's manual and look at the maintenance intervals -- you'll see what is due at this time.

2005 matrix with 65k miles. any critical maintenance coming up? car is running fine.


60 k should include oil change, rotate tires, some filters (air, cabin air..etc), brake inspection, as well as a overall general check. Your next major maintenance will be at 100 k. Just keep up your reg. maintenance. You'll find the Toyota Matrix is a very dependable vehicle.

I have a 2007 toyota matrix. I would like to know what kind of service is needed at 25,000 miles and what is the cost?? thanks


Do an oil change every 4 to 5000 miles. Check air filter and replace if necessary. Do tire rotation every 5000 miles especially if you have warranty on tires. The manual will list some other stuff but I would only be concern with the above. 25,000 miles is not a lot of mileage. Probably looking at $40. Please ask any other concerns.
