2006 Toyota Solara Question: My mechanic recommended as general maintenance, I should replace the timing belt
Answer #1pushrod August 08, 2013, 08:13Master
Your 2.4 engine has a timing CHAIN, which should last as long as the rest of the eng. Your mech. was right to suggest that work, if it had a belt. Lot of mechs. think it has a belt, honest mistake, no worries!
I own a Camry with that eng., or i might not know either!
