My suggestion is simple. For this repair, get a service manual. Even a Chiltons would work for this one. You're going to need to flip pages for SURE. You will also need some timing gear holders and other assorted tools. Check the book, if you don't have what they say you need, get it before you start. If you try it without what they say, you'll probalby be bending a valve or two. Also, another suggestion, if you have to "ask" how to do a timing belt, you need help. I wouldn't attempt this repair alone without someone who knows what they are doing looking over your shoulder. Use the "phone a friend" option. If you have an auto repair buddy, call him/her in on this one. A second set of eyes will be neccessary. The reason I say this is simple: If you botch it, say good-bye to Mr. Engine. And I love engines too much to not stand up for thier right to exist... Hey, they have souls too, ya know...

Please tell me about time belt . Is there any posibility to use time belt above 100,000 KM with out changing it.

2005 Tacomas (v6 or 4cyl) do not have timing belts. Instead they have timing chains, which do not need servicing unless damaged or rattling.

Timing belt diagram the timing belt came off timing

Click on the following free, direct Link. I realize the Link has "4 Runner, but the 4-Runner and PreRunner have the exact same Engines (2.7L & 3.4L).
The Link has the Timing Belt Diagrams for your 1999 Toyota PreRunner for either the 2.7L DOHC In-Line 4-Cylinder or 3.4L DOHC V6 Engines; including Marks and Instructional Diagrams.

Let me know if this helped...

1995 Toyota Tacoma V6 rotates but won't start.Starts and runs great for several starts then rotates and won't start.

Check timing chain or belt. Might have jumped out of position because of wear. Or check ingnition components. rotor, cap. or condenser.
