Most timing belts last from 70000 to 120000 miles, so I really don't think you need to worry about a timing belt. If the car starts right up and doesn't hesitate or bog down when running, then the fuel pump is good as well. The only things that would require replacement at this mileage are the air filter and the inline fuel filter. Sounds like someone is out to make a fast buck or two off you.

This does not sound normal at all.. ESPECIALLY being a Toyota. First off if the car runs and runs good then there should be no reason to replace the fuel pump OR the timing belt. I would suggest only replacing the timing belt around 100xxx miles. I hope that there is not a dealer giving you a ride for some money on this one. Make damn sure that he does not mess with your car so it will break down on you later down the road.

2004 camry with 104,000 miles, no problems just wondering what needs maintenance needs to be done?


Depends on what you have done so far.
The transmission fluid should have been replaced, the timing belt and water pump, spark plugs, serpentine belt, radiator hoses, and fuel filter should have been replaced at 75,000 miles or before.
There should be a maintenance schedule in the back of your owners manual with some guides.

Just want to know if I have to change the timing belt on my 1997 Avalon XLS with 63,350 original miles (always used Premium gasoline and Mobil 1 oil) and if the belts is changed, does the water pump need...


DUE TO THE AGE OF CAR, TIMING BELT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REPLACE WATER PUMP, BUT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA..GAS AND OIL HAVE NO EFFECT ON TIMING BELT OR WATER PUMP.....

What is mileage to replace a timing belt on a 2004 Avalon


Typically any timing belt replacement interval is 60k-75k miles. The book will however tell you 90k. Now it depends on what engine your Avalon came with. The 3.0 is a non interference engine meaning if it does snap, it will not cause any damage to your engine. The 3.5L engine however i dont know if its a interference engine or not but i dont see anywhere where it says it is. As always suggested, change your water pump as well, as it runs off the timing belt. Once i didnt change the water pump and a week later it locked up on me and ruined my perfect new timing belt. Truth be told :) lol

WHEN DOES THE TIMING BELT FOR A 2004 HONDA ACCORD GET REPLACED?


It depends on the engine. The 4 cylinder engine uses a timing chain, and is generally replaced every 150,000 miles (Honda doesn't give a specific interval) with the water pump (driven off of the timing chain) and timing gears. On the V6 engine, you have a regular rubber/steel belt, and it is supposed to be replaced every 105,000 miles, according to Honda. The water pump is driven off the belt as well, and should be inspected or replaced. (I recommend replacing the water pump anyway, just to save yourself any future trouble)

At 75,000 miles my 04Avalon gas tank will only fill 3/4 full. The gas pump cuts off and Ican keep clicking it for about 50 times to try continue filling the tank. Is there some remedy for this?


The float on your fuel pump is not working right the only cure is to replace the float not pump just the float and you will need to drop the fuel tank to do so.

Does the timing belt need to be changed?


There is no real way of telling as there are cords buried in the rubber of the belt that break.Toyota says to replace it every 90,000 mi..I have seen them last longer but that would be your call.If you get it done you should also change the drive belts as they have to take them off and on anyway and you should only have to pay the parts.That is if they are original.Thanks for using fixya
