If you have your owner's manual, check it for sure, or ask your dealer's parts dept. Generally, most cars with a rubber timing belt (not a metal timing chain) require the belt to be replaced at six years or 60,000 miles (100,000 km), which ever comes first. If you wait too long and the belt breaks, many engines can suffer extensive and expensive damage. You don't want to risk that.

If your engine uses a metal timing chain, it should last the life of the engine. But that depends on the design of the engine, and I think most Toyotas use a rubber belt. (No, they are not interchangeable.)

Check you owners manual most of the car will due about 70k to 80k to be safe newer car uses a timing belt which is rubber and will worn out in longer miles make sure have this change before its due or will mess-up your engine and too costly to repair.

SOURCE: Toyota Highlander 2005

The timing belt runs from the crankshaft pulley up to the head, around the cam gears, back down, over the water pump and back to the crankshaft. Timing belt replacement is a job that is time consuming, and, at times, difficult. If you do not have the proceedure, I can send it to you, but, this is a very specific job, and having the belt incorrect in any one of 6 possible "mistake" positions will result in a no-start or run poor condition. Timing belt replacement for that vehicle is recommended at 90,000 miles.

SOURCE: timing belt?

When was the last time it was changed? Easiest way to check is open the hood, find the belt (when the car is off) look at the belt, do you see lots of cracking and strain on it? If so then it's probably time to change it, otherwise if there's none or not much at all, then it's fine.

I have a 2006 toyota highlander limited 3.3 engine and i need instructions on how to replace timing belt plus adjustments to cams and crankshaft


The belt replacement involves the correct allignment of the timing marks on each of the pulleysm such as crankshaft, cam, etc. If you install it and these are out of correct allignment, your mechanical timing of the main engine components is out of timing and will cause terrible damage to the inside of your engine. If you insist on changing it yourself, by all means aquire a service manual and follow the instructions exactly. As far as "adjusting the cams and crankshaft, there are no adjustments.....only the correct allingment of the timing marks as per manufacturers specs. This is a very serious repair, and mistakes are very costly. Best Wishes

I guess all services you need is replacement of filters, Oil, spark plugs if not recently changed
Belt replacement is worth at 90K, but price is too high! check this link: http://shop.autopartsfair.com/store/?N=11801+4294962486+1725+9318
it requires one hour work! or even less
other than this, if you have a service light on, either remove battery pole for a while to reset it, or ignore it and will disappear wft. some time!!!

When should spark plugs be changed? I have 80,000 Kilometers on the Toyota highlander and they have never been changed.


I am in Australia and so am unfamiliar with the highlander, it sort of looks like our landcruiser.
Look in your owners manual to see what type of spark plugs your car has, if thet are platinum plugs they need to be replaced every 100,000 Kms or 5 years, If they are standard plugs they require replacement every 40,000 Kms or 2 years, I hope this helps
