the manufacturer has no recommended specific maintenance interval on 1994 and later models for your engine but 100,000 miles since last change is near the end for all timing belts in my experience.you may just need the egr passages cleaned or valve lash adjusted.tuff to diagnose online however but good luck.

Question Answered: 

an independant shop can do that repair no problem.very labor intensive tho so look to spend about $1000.00 give or take a few for your area.thats an auto md price which is $200 cheaper then a dealer would charge but you will get the same quality parts in the process.that price includes the water pump as well cause if its 20 years old,let them change it.my book lists the 4.0 lexus v8 engine as a non interference engine so no damage will be done to the engine if the timing belt breaks.good luck.
