Have you replaced the timing belt? The warning light is a maintenance item that shouldn't be ignored. 60k is the average life span of a timing belt and if ignored and belt breaks you're in full a "wallet full" of repairs. Replace if you haven't, then have Toyota or service place reset the light. That's one light you shouldn't ignore.

How many km can I travel with timing belt warning light on , and at what speed ? Toyota Raider , D4D , 3L , 2014 model


This light indicates the timing belt is due for replacement either by mileage or age through a computer monitor. The engine will continue to operate normally and you can travel at whatever spped you like. Witout knowing year/make/model..... The average timing belt replacement interval on most vehicles is 7 yr or 160,000 km. You can be asking for trouble on some makes/models if you go much past this recommended interval

99 Honda Accord 4 cyl manual 54000 kms, serviced


USA answers, always.
and 60k is most cars. (most cars they like to die at 100k miles)
and is not possible by any human to answer EOL , end of life.

that depends if its Honda belt, or Gates or some china carp
sold off fleabay.
and air temp, where you live, Climate, Pheonix. or Canada?

ok it seems this belt is the first ever to be changed out. Gates is the best.
my online links shows 5 engine options, 1.6L to 3L.
that begs the question #1 is my engine interference type,
if you go to the GATES (tm) ecatalog, you can see if it is or not. using engine type. option as your selection.
i pulled up the maintenance tab and it states, 105K miles.
but may vary by engine, and for sure if belt is 2nd time.
look up this info carefully.
and can vary with cars driven extensively in stop and go traffic.
hot , and long engine hours, but low miles.
i see no chain, on the 5 engines, alldata shows 5 belts.

105,000 miles best case USA.
168,000 meters 168K meters

urgent.? 2.3L is interference 105/60k (60k miles severe usage)
3L?
i look at Gates and bingo Interference.
so URGENT.
is it urgent.
easy answer?, if it looks bad, it is. get it out of there.
cracks, fraying, distortions of any kind.
only reality counts. (yours)

navigates. is the ecat.

if really paranoid, get a real Honda belt... 105k miles is magic.

Go to any Napa, Autozone,or web info for diagram, as for step by step, here goes. lift right side of van and remove tire and splash shield, drain antifreeze, you need a floor jack to move the front of engine up and down during the process, remove right mount, engine plate, belts, tensioner, pulleys, remove engine timing covers, and expose the timing belt, set the timing to marks as indicated by diagram, remove belt, and remove the pump, while your in there,good idea to cange cams and crank seals. and timing belt. GOD LUCK. RDJRP.

Manual for time belt replacemant Isuzu Trooper 1999, 3l disel engine


4JX1 diesel engine has a belt . 4JGE is a different engine completely. To change it set #1 on tdc fireing stroke using the mark on the back lip of the crank pulley (sit it at 12'oclock) and see the mark on the camshaft bearing matches the notch on the pulley .Ignore the marks on the lower belt pulley.
Tensioner and cover removal/replacement is standard and the chnage period is 60,000 miles.

Time belt lamp 4 runner 1995


This light is to advise you that it is due for replacement. If its been done earlier the interval may not have been reset. Any dealer or someone with vehicle diagnostics gear should be able to reset it.

Timing


Hi,
The 3L 24V straight 6 engine has timing marks on the crankshaft pulley & on the camshaft pulleys. The crankshaft pulley aligns with a mark on the front of the block, the camshafts align with two marks on the plastic cover on the top. The ignition timing, the fuel/air mixture & the valve timing are not adjustable. The 3L engine is known as an "Interference" engine, in other words, if the cam belt breaks or is not set up correctly, the pistons 'meet' the valves, with dire consequences!!!!!
