Question about 2001 Toyota Highlander

Timing Chain Interval

What is the timing chain interval for replacement?

I've heard 100,000 so far. But I work for Volvo and have seen their kevlar timing BELTS run for 150K+ before replacement. And Volvo recommends replacement at 100,000.

But if it is a timing CHAIN, which is supposed to last longer...what is the interval before replacement?

If you have a chain, there is NO replacement interval. ALL 4 cylinder Highlanders have timing chains.

Most timing chains, changed when engine needs overhaul or if other parts wear premature like timing chain guides or tensioners usually over 200,000 problem free when engine properly maintained.

What is timing belt interval for 2006 ford fiesta?


If not in the owners manual, look in the maintenance guide. If it has a belt rather than timing chain, it will likely be in the 100,000 mile ballpark. Gates products lists engines that are subject to damage with a broken belt, and engines that require belt replacement. If you can't find your engine listed, it has a chain. www.gates.com to start

Timing chain How often does the timing chain need to be replaced???  2002 BMW 745i 118,000 kms


I don't think they have a service interval. They usually last a long time. I would guess 150,000 to 175,000 miles. Or about 250,000 km

When should I replace the timing belt on a 1999 gmc sonoma


Your vehicle has a timing chain, not a belt. There is no regular maintenance interval on the chain. If it starts to clatter at idle, it may be time to replace, otherwise, do not be concerned

Timeing belt replacement wen to replace


The normal interval for timing chain replacement is 100,000 miles for close tolerance engines such as yours. Consult your owner manual for more service instructions or your local mechanic.

Timing chain


The timing chain is nothing like a timing belt service interval wise. The only time that you would need to change a timing chain is if its somehow damaged. This can happen when worked on and the chain guides arent fitted back on properly, camshaft vanos units not tightened etc. Otherwise the timing chains are almost always never changed!

One less thing to worry about. Hope this helps!
