They recommend you change em every 30k
Youre just seeing if we’re paying’ attention, right? ;)
@alexy is right…90k
That's what the Toyota dealership told me when I went to get the water pump. He said that driving on hot sand in a salt environment will dry it out fast....what am I a walking Toyota manual? lol I watch Youtube on the hood of my car.
This is from the Toyota parts center:
"Owners of V6 4Runners from 1990 to 2002 will need to replace their timing belt every 60k, while owners of V8 engines from 2003 to 2009 need to think about a belt replacement every 90k miles."
This is a 2000 V6 so it's 60k... who knew?
I've done that job exactly 2 times and it sucked. Both times it was AT LEAST 90k in between belt changes. I've owned two 3rd Gen 4runners. One (a 96) had 325k and this one (a 2000) has 190k miles on it.
