1999 Toyota Tacoma Q&A
1999 Toyota Tacoma Question: At what mileage does the timing chain need to be replaced?
Older Toyota 22R engines used to have problems with timing chain guides and tensioners mostly on engines that did not have frequent oil changes. I have a Tacoma with 165,000 miles and have seen Tacoma engines with 200,000 miles with no timing chain noise. We work on a lot of Tacomas and I have not seen timing chain problems. - patrick mannion
This is exactly what the dealership told me down here in Columbia SC. - powerpro

I have just come back from a Toyota garage where I was told the whole Timing kit (including the chain) needs to be replaced. The car is a Toyota Carolla saloon 2001 1.4 petrol with just 82,000 on the clock. The cost of the Timing kit including the labour is 800 euro. ! - Visitor
