    what is involved in replacing a timing belt, and would I save money if I did it myself instead of hiring a shop to do it? I have done my old Tacoma 3.0, I didn't see much different between the two. Any advice that you could give me would be great!

    Thank man!!!!
    Since this is the newest Tacoma Ive owned, it has 68000 miles on it, crew cab with auto' 4x4, does the 07 Tacoma have weak points that I have to keep a eye out for... beside the frame, living in New England, they do rust out more than other trucks.

    Do you have any tricks to prevent or slow it down the frame from rotting' besides moving down south? :dancingbacon:
