It's recommended to change the water pump while doing the timing belt because it's right there.

to add, if the belt breaks, then your 780 estimate goes up to over 2000 from the valves being bent. stick to the mileage reccomendation from the owners manual. Roy

the engine you have thank god is a non-contact engine , thus your fan belt failure cannot cause the cam to crush valves ,no mater what you you have a non contact engine, no valve crushing, you are not smart enough to put a new belt on ,its not easy,a toyota person shold know how to do it.dc4073106149
