SOURCE: 2003 Toyota 4 runner

Hi robrtsn,
As you forgot to say what the engine is in your 4-Runner....I'll give you the rule of thumb....if you have a timing chain in your engine, you'll need to check it only if it becomes noisy....If you have a timing belt, the manufactures recommend that it's replaced every one hundred thousand kilometers.....thats about sixty five thousand miles.... I believe that the later vehicles...(those with the electronic odometer fitted) have been extended to one hundred and fifty thousand, but to be on the safe side, I'd replace at one hundred thousand, especially with the number of sub standard parts that are available on the market these days....

Hope that's a help

Best regards Johngee10

You can wait its just fine, However if you ever start to notice oil leaking from front cover, then you will need to change. If there is no loss in power feel sluggish especially on take off, Its almost impossible for these type of chains to break. So enjoy until the wheel fall good luck

SOURCE: should it cost a grand to replace the timing chain+3 guides

$1000 is appropriate at a chain garage or dealership as long as it carrys a warrenty. with the economy the way it is if you want to save money you can hire a mechanic to do it as sidework but you are taking your chances on how quick he will do it and you have to make sure he knows what he is doing. if you need the car done quickly and are not a good judge of character shell out the $1000. If you can spot someone bull"s"ing and have a little more time offer a mechanic $500. Sometimes you can drive up to a shop and bypass the office and ask the mechanic directly if he does sidework. Most will love the oppertunity because they are paid nowhere near what you pay for the service.

The water pump is leaking in my 2003 Oldsmobile alero

If your water pump is leaking, then it will have to be replaced. This is not a job for the beginner as you will have to rmove the timing chain cover, harmonic balancer and timing chain. If you tackle this job your self make sure you mark your valve gears, crank and replace the chain exactly the way you removed it or your timing will be off.
