2000 Taco - 6 cyl

Hello Everyone,

I'm the proud owner of a very low mileage 2000 6cyl Taco PreRunner.

Is this engine a timing chain, or timing belt......???

If it's a chain I have no worries, but if it's a timing belt (rubber), then I need to watch the age of the truck, and keep the rubber belt in mind.

I know that a rubber belt will tend to fail (through age) sooner than a chain.


Thanks for any info,,,,,!!!!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Welcome! Post up some pics of your truck when you get a chance. The engine in your truck has a timing belt. Scheadualed replacement is 90,000 miles.

Thanks for the quick reply. My concern is the aging on the rubber as a belt.

At 20,000 miles I know I have no issue, but at ten years old, I can't help but wonder what the longevity of a rubber Timing Belt would be.....!!!

How the hell does your truck only have 20,000 miles? Lol

I have a '99 3.4L V6 4x4 TRD Off Road. I just hit 139k.

Welcome though. Post up some pictures, and as Chris said, the timing belt is recommended changed at 90k.

It's quite simple. I retired in Feb '00 and treated myself to a new Tacoma truck in March '00. We already had a new '00 Toyota Avalon that we used a lot. Then we got into motorcycle touring in April of '01, and the rest is history.

So, the little truck sets there, and is used to run to Lowe's for yard stuff, and little short runs here and there.

In the end, the '00 Tacoma has 20,4?? miles on the odometer and will turn ten years old in March '10.

Thus, I'm concerned about the rubber timing belt....!!!

You see, quite simple....!!!
