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

80 thousand miles is the best, any more you are risking damage to your engine.

SOURCE: at what mileage do you replace the timing belt on

I always recommend changing the Timing Belt, Water Pump ( since it is timing belt driven) and the Timing Belt Tensioner at 75,000 Miles. Over 75k you are running the risk of one of these failing and it is much cheaper to replace them before they break.

Have a great night and I hope this helps you. :) Allen

Does a 2004 Avalon with 27000 miles need the timing belt and fuel pump replaced when there have been no problems and the car has had regular maintenance at dealership?

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.

We have a 2002 Toyota Avalon in perfect shape with 40,000 miles, our Mechanic has told us that Toyota recommends changing the timing belt after 8 years, we are hesitant to do this maintenance because of...

Since it is a rubber belt, even though the mileage doesn't warrant a replacement, the time interval can. It's like changing oil, 3 months/3000 miles, most people will never change oil every three months if they didn't reach 3000 miles, however, oil degrades and becomes acidic over time so you'll still end up with engine damage. Same thing with the belt, low mileage, but with time it can dry rot or crack and if it breaks, well, you may have much more than $700 in repairs to look forward to. But for your info, the timing belt in my nissan truck is 10 years old and has 115,000 miles on it. Nissan recommends changing it at 100k miles. I'm taking a risk with mine for sure.

Need direction for belt replacement for 2004 avalon

Big job to do......You begin by draining the coolant into a container, removing right-front tire, crank-pulley straight up, taking-out the belt-cover...etc....why not get the popular Hanyes repair manual sold for under $20/copy? Timing-belt, alternator, a/c it explains it all. Or better still, avoid possible engine damage, take to shop.

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
