    Default Yaris Timing Belt Change?

    Pardon my "on-topic" post. <G>

    The Toyota dealer sent me a flyer in the mail with a number of service
    discount coupons in it.

    One that caught my eye was:

    "Timing Belt Replacement Special" - Timing belt fatigue cannot be
    detected. The stated Factory Recommended Maintenance Schedule
    indicates this service should be completed at 60,000 miles for 1997 and
    earlier model Toyotas and at 90,000 miles for 1998 and later model
    Toyotas.

    My 2007 Toyota Yaris came with a "Genuine Toyota Service - 2007
    Scheduled Maintenance Guide - Passport to Performance". Under 2007
    Cars at 90,000 miles it states "Replace timing belt (Camry Solara with
    3MZ-FE)"

    So which is it? Should the Yaris timing belt be changed every 90,000
    miles or not?

    I thought all Toyota 4-bangers currently in production were chain-driven?

    I disagree with Scott...

    I think for good measure, you should change it at 89, 999 miles.

    ASS!

    Check the owner's manual for your car. I believe that the Yaris has a
    timing chain instead of a timing belt and so does not require routine
    replacement.

    According to the auto channel, the engine has a timing chain in the
    1NZ-FE engine: http://www.theautochannel.com/news/2...30/198830.html

    So the Factory Recommended Maintenance Schedule is correct: On the Camry
    Solara with the 3MZ-FE engine, you need to change the belt at 90,000 mi.
    You don't have a Solara with the 3MZ-FE engine, so you don't need to
    change the timing belt, because you don't have one.

    However, you should change the timing chain at some point. I usually
    wait until about 9,000,000 mi. I have only 8,855,000 mi to go!
