Thread: Hilux cam belt change (sorry Norma you prompted me!)

  1. #1

    Hilux cam belt change (sorry Norma you prompted me!)

    My Hilux MK6 is a 2.5 diesel 2006, its done 70k and has been serviced annually.
    The book states cam belt should be changed at 100k or 10 years.
    Has anyone else risked taking it to the limit?
    I am getting a little jittery to say the least.
    Cheers
    Richard

    GET IT DONE!!!!!!!!

    I could go into the reasons why but the noise from my wallet screaming in pain would just drown it out

    I'm pretty sure the timing belt on a hilux only drives the pump, so if it breaks the engine won't be damaged.
    make sure you change the hydraulic tensioner too

    Sold my hi ace with 280,000 on the clock to a friend , four years later it has done 370,000 and he has stuck to the regime of timing belt change every 70,000 and service every 5,000.

    Really?
    its an interference engine. Belt breaks you fubar the valves!
    change it, no that tricky on any car if you have a few tools and the Internet, with investing in OEM parts and doing the usual selection of ancillary parts at the same time
    thermostat, water pump, aux belts etc etc. they cost pennies compared to the ball ache of pulling the car apart

    Totally different situation but my 86 "Hilux" (Toyota 4x4 Pickup, here) with a gas engine is waiting on warm weather for the timing chain guides to be replaced. The originals were plastic and one has broken off. The non OEM guides are steel, like they used to be before 1984. This is one time when OEM (plastic) is not the way to go.~Muir
