JollyRomek, please restrain yourself from personal remarks
Naw, let Jolly and Wroclaw Boy follow me around with their immature ill bantering.
It shows their character plus I enjoy colouring them stupid.
Besides I wouldn't want them to get "A's" for abuse in their profiles.
On which blog did you read this great piece of advise
Didn't, I have changed several myself which is no doubt is several more then you have.
Which blog did you get your information from now is the question.
Toyota suggests changing the timing belts in intervals of between 60000 and 90000 kilometers
Maybe you could show us where Toyota suggests that for a six or eight cylinder.
In all the owner manuals that I have seen Toyota suggests ever 100,000 miles (161000k) like I stated for my Toyota's.
What blog did you get your information from ?
you will find that most of their models actually have a timing chain, not a belt.
Yup, you had 'trout' for dinner and I had 'fish' for dinner.
Here in America I can walk into an auto parts store and ask for a timing belt or chain and be handed the same exact product.
You can google either a timing belt or timing chain and get the same results.
Besides the question referred to a timing belt so as not to be a dweeb and confuse the issue on technicalities for the sake of an arguement I called it a belt. :-)
What you are basically suggesting is that if you had the to replace the water pumps in a Toyota only after 300k kilometers, then this is when the timing belt should also be replaced?
Absolutely ! You call 300k "only" ? That is a lot of kliks on a car son.
Once again Jolly, you have delighted us with your first hand "knowledge".
