Its needs to be changed, usually the belt this change between a hundred and a hundred fifty thousand miles


Opps, might as well change the water pump while you have the engine open


The 1GR-FE engine has a timing chain. http://www.toyoheadquarters.com/threads/toyota-1gr-fe-timing- chain-marks-4-0l.694/


the instructions call for a new headgasket...be sure to "rebuild" with a new pressure shoe and new sprockets too~...more than one man can do in one day~ (unless experienced at this)~
