I just had this done on my 1998 T100. If it is just the timing belt and
related parts, you can go 90,000 miles under "normal" conditions.
Definitely have the water pump, belt tensioners / idlers and cam shaft seals replaced at the same time. No sense having to get in there again before another 90,000 miles. I had mine done at 70,000 because it was 10 years old. Age does matter.
An independent shop that specializes in Japanese auto repair should be able to beat a dealer's price. Plan on spending $600 - $800.

Safe bet on a timing belt is every 60k miles. Remember it's not just the belt - it's the tensioner also, as well as the water pump, thermostat, spark plugs, spark plug wires, all fluids, all filters, brake inspection, tire rotation, and an inspection of lighting and suspension parts. Plan to pay quite a bit if you don't do it yourself.

You will probably have to take your timing belt off, allign the marks, then put your belt back on. Had the same problem. That's what I had to do. They have to be alligned. Check your book though. I think all has to be at 12 o'clock but I am not 100% sure.

I have a '98 Toyota Sienna with 54,000 miles on it and I was wondering when I should have the timing belt replaced? Also, I have heard that it is a good idea to replace the water pump with the timing...


Scheduled Maintenance Services, for most Cars, has to be done at 30K, 60K, and 90K. Toyota recommend to replace the timing belt at 90K Service.
If you wait, one of two things could happen: Nothing, or the belt could break and you would be out thousands to repair the engine instead of a $400 hundred to replace just the belt. If it breaks, there will be damage done to the valves and various other internal components, which will not covered under warranty. The problem is that the Dealer would charge you between $700-$800 because they would also replace the water pump at the same time. Or you can buy the timing belt and change it by your self. To do so, you nee the Haynes Repair Manual specific for your car, or another equivalent manual.
To be safe, have the timing belt changed before the 95k mile mark ...... AND have the water pump replaced with a NEW one.

Does the 1996 T-100 Toyota pick-up have a timing belt or a timing chain?


It has a timing BELT. I just had mine replaced ($600). After well over 100k. It was barely worn so go to the effort/expense of checking before you go whole hog on a replacement. Also the V6 3.4 litre is a NON interference engine.
