Hi robrtsn,
As you forgot to say what the engine is in your 4-Runner....I'll give you the rule of thumb....if you have a timing chain in your engine, you'll need to check it only if it becomes noisy....If you have a timing belt, the manufactures recommend that it's replaced every one hundred thousand kilometers.....thats about sixty five thousand miles.... I believe that the later vehicles...(those with the electronic odometer fitted) have been extended to one hundred and fifty thousand, but to be on the safe side, I'd replace at one hundred thousand, especially with the number of sub standard parts that are available on the market these days....

Hope that's a help

Best regards Johngee10

I also own a 2003 Toyota Fourrunner SR5 4WD and my particular model, according to the owner's manual maintenance guide, there is no recommendation for the timing chain to be replaced. Only the serpentine belt. Now the V8 model, it recommends the change at 90,000, if I am not mistaken.

Num 1 dead , changed plug, wire ,rotor, cap, injector, does have compression runs fine sometimes , 1986 toyata dolphin motorhome 22re


The only thing left is the cam lobe it self. Run all new plugs for just one week. Pull the plugs - laying them out each plug for each cylinder - -mark them. Change them to NEW again - in one week - pull them and compare them with the new plugs. Some times you just get back plugs too so if you want to short cut it - change the plugs say - that cylinder with number 3.
Also - how old is the timing chain? This happens a lot with stretched chains - That is an old engine so I would seriously consider the timing chain being stretched. Inspect it as a precaution. I would replace it if you do not remember when it was changed to the month and year.

My overdrive lightis flashing on my 1991 toyota 4 runner.


means it's going out or the transmission oil will need to be changed, check the transmission fluid if it is brown and smells likes onions have the fluid changed and the filter, this may not fix it but you may get lucky, if it's the band or clutch assembly you will have to rebuild transmission.

Timing belt/chain


take a peek in your timing chain, if its still there and tensioned, if it is,then that shouldnt be it, look for some other posible cause. i havent had any situation that a timing chain jumped into the next teeth. I assume that you got a 4 cyl 22r engine.
