About every 100,000 miles you should have it replaced, and if you don't know how to do it yourself, the cost will usually vary, depending on the mechanic you take it to

Does the V6 have to change a timing belt?

I assume you are talking about the 3.0L V-6...The answer is YES. The timing belt needs to be replaced every 60,000 miles. I also recommend replacing the water pump, the cam seals, the crankshaft front seal, and the timing belt tensioner and idler pullies while you are in there. It will cost a little more, but it will keep you from having to go back in there for another 60.000 miles. The timing belt will have to be replaced again if any of these parts fail.

How many years or miles should a timing belt be changed on a 2000 V8 Tundra ?

Replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles or 10 years. Considering it is already 11 years old, replace it now. Warning: This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks you will have serious internal engine damage. The water pump is also driven by the cam belt so it is advisable to replace it at the same time you replace the cam belt in order to save labor cost later on when the pump fails. The pump will not last 180,000 miles so replace it now.

How many miles can I go before getting the water pump, timing belt?

The water pump can easily go 130,000 or more miles but will give you warning signs when it begins to fail. It will leak small quantities of coolant onto the pump surface at a weap hole near the center of the pump (check with flashlight) and as it fails it will begin making a grinding noise and you can smell the sweet ethylene glycol odor from the leak.

The timing belt will go 130,000 miles or more without a LOT of risk if you drive mostly highway miles, but will NOT give you any warning (no easy-to-detect signs of impending failure) and it is difficult to inspect the belt for failure signs so the manufacturer of most modern autos recommend replacement of the timing belt at around 100,000 miles.

However, you need to verify your motor has a timing "belt" and not a timing chain before you schedule a replacement and remember the longer you go the higher your risk of ruining your motor if the belt breaks. If the belt breaks, the cost will easily be 10 times the cost of replacing the timing belt.

Now if you want to change the belt yourself, make sure you have a good shop manual and try to find a friend who has done a similar procedure to check your work during the last couple of steps including removing the slack properly and checking the marks for accurate alignment.

your timing belt needs to be replaced every 90,000 miles on the older cars they are to be replaced at every 60,000 miles. but if it was me i would do every 60k just because breaking a timing belt can cost you a motor and for your camery that can cost up to 2000 for a rebuilt motor.

Replace the timing belt

It is recommended to replace both the timing belt and the tensioner bearings every 30,000 miles for the models you listed. Other models like the 360 Modena are best replaced every 3 years. The cost (parts and labor) to replace the timing belt on both the Ferrari 308 and 328 will run about $3,000. The Ferrari 348 will cost a bit more at $4,000. No Ferrari is inexpensive to maintain. However, the 308 and 328 will be the least expensive for basic maintenance. Furthermore, if you plan to drive under 2,500 miles per year (or 5,000 miles - 2nd tier), you can insure the car as a collector's vehicle and pay a much, much lower insurance premium.
