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.

When should a timing belt be change on a mazda cx


Contact your local Mazda dealer and ask them. Manufacturers all have different intervals for specific type of services and maintenance.

Some vehicles have a belt and others have a chain. In belts, most commonly are changed within 80,000 to 100,000 miles. With chains, as long as you maintain your oil changes up to date, no need to replace. But consider that hard driving affects the overall performance of this component.

How often should timing belts be replaced


Trick question. The 2.7L has a timing chain and not belt. 3.0L needs a new belt every 60,000 but some companies sell a kevlar/nitrile replacement that's supposed to be good for 100K. Do the water pump at the same time. 2.4L needs a belt at 60K.

When should the timing belt be changed on a saab vector 1.9 Tid


Standard Answer for Timing Belts/Chains: 100,000 to 120,000 miles is when the Timing Belts/Chains start malfunctioning or failing. Some people want to go ahead and change them before malfunctions/failures happen.
I just replaced mine on 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan which just turned 100K. Most Timing Belt/Chain failures will cause more costly engine damage when these fail, including a need to replace/rebuild an entire engine.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

When is a good time to replace the timing belt/chain on I35


I35's do not have timing belts. They have timing chains and do not need to be replaced. The only Infiniti vehicles with timing belts are the J30 and the QX4. So whoever told you that you had a belt doesn't know what they are talking about.

Timing belt replacement frequency


error definitely some issues with the early six-cylinder timing belts. There were some updates, including a dampener for one of the cams. See if you can get copies of the service bulletins for your engine. I think the belt may also be somewhat wider on the later engines. DO NOT use the later interval.

Timing belts


You need to change the timing belt at every 100,000 interval. I too own a 1999 S40 I still have 20,000km's to go however I would suggest you don't wait the 100,000, break downs are a drag. MCM

2001 Toyota camry 2.2 L 4 cyl engine timming belt replacement


The 2001 Camry 2.2 has a timing belt.
Recommended change interval is 90,000 miles.
There is no good reason for putting the replacement off, as the belt may be stretched slightly when it nears the rec replace interval, and your mileage may suffer because the engine is not in proper "time".
If the belt jumps time or breaks, it will NOT damage the valves.
