2002 Toyota 4Runner Question: Timing Belt and Water Pump replacement
If you have the Timing belt done without changing the pump and the pump goes out 10,000 miles later then you have to pay the same amount of labor to remove the timing belt again and replace the pump and you take a chance of overheating the engine and causing unnecessary damage to your engine. I would change the pump. - hemicuda
My mechanic states that I should replace the water pump and he also advised me that the timing belt also has to be replaced! Another customer that I met related to beware and start cheap, for exam...
I've already replaced the water pump and the timing belt. My truck is not a 4X.
i don't know if timing belt has been change on my truck or not and if it is how do i know and if not when should i change that and how much does it cost to replace.
my truck has a chain for timing if thats any help. the manual suggest changing water pump when timing belt is repaced.should i wait longer since i have a timing chain to replace water pump?miles?
