This engine has a timing chain not timing belt, (should reduce the cost of your service). I would suggest changing the transmission fluid and brake fluid even if Lexus don't recommend it at 90k.

Hello your vehicle has a timing chain not a timing belt and this service cost can be found on REPAIR PAL.COM and it should cost less not having to replace the timing belt.HAVE A BLESS DAY from DR. RECO.
the timing chain should last the life of the engine now that doesn't mean the engine will last forever you have to make sure to take care of it but aslong as you are doing your oil changes and maintance properly the chain should never have an issue anyone that tries to tell you to change it at a specific mile market is full of it BS
According to my mechanic, the timing chain generally does not need to be changed for a long time unless something extraordinary happens. Generally, timing belts get changed around 90K - 100K depending upon the car. However, a timing chain needs to be changed if the chain gets 'stretched' or loses tension. Personally, I am not sure how I would know that. I believe a good mechanic can 'hear' it as the engine REVs or he would simply know your car over time. Alternatively, I would say let your mechanic periodically drive your car around the block, so to speak, once it crosses the 100K mark.
