Question about 2003 Toyota 4Runner
When do you change or check the timing chain for 4-runner
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.
