2001 Toyota Sienna Question: Timing belt replacement
I have a 2001 Toyota Sienna with 74,500 miles. The manual states replacement of the belt at 72 months/90,000 miles. My Haynes manual states at 90,000 miles. Nothing about months. This is not an inexpensive repair when you also throw in the water pump. Should I go by mileage or the months?? The car is mostly driven around town with occassional longer highway use for vacations,longer trips. - jhersh
Toyota state that the timing belt should be changed at 72 months/90,000 miles under normal driving conditions. If you read the fine print describing "severe driving conditions" a lot of people become surprised that there driving conditions fit into the severe driving conditions. every manufacturer builds in a safety factor the belt seldom fails prior to the recommended timing belt change interval but that being said oil leaks inside the timing cover will drastically reduce belt life. I always follow the manufacturers replacement intervals just for safety sake. I agree it is an expensive preventative maintenance repair. - patrick mannion

I replaced the timing belt at 90,000. Now I have 200,000 miles on the van. Do I need to replace the timing belt and water pump, or should I drive it until it just dies?
is this engine an interference engine and what is the change interval for the timing belt on sch 'a' or 'b'? thanks.
On a low mileage Sienna 77,000)should the timing belt be replace before 90,000 miles? No belt wear is currently noticed.
