    Hi all, I am new to this sight but not to 4Xn' . I started in the 70's and have never quit. Currently I have a 2000 Tacoma TRD. I got it about a week ago and have just finished going through all the normal maintenance stuff including the timing belt. This truck has 146K miles and has no record of it ever been changed. When I got the old belt off I think it had maybe 100 miles left on it.

    Lucky me for not listening to the guy I bought it from when he said 'it was well taken care of'. BTW I got the info for changing the belt from this site BIG HELP THANKS GUYS !!!!

    Welp, this weekend I took her for a little shake-down run. Everything went fine for the most part. Problems I noticed were a distinct smell of Trans/transfer-case fluid, while in 4X low range running in 3rd and 4th gear @ around 20mph through deep sand,(5-speed). Thats about 2500-3000 RPM. Something has to leaking somewhere to get the smell we had, and on the freeway on the way home the shift lever was pretty hot to the touch. Not burning hot but almost. I have an '87 Toyota w/5-speed and the shift lever never got hot. Tomorrow I am going to check the fluid level. I never checked it before I left because the under side of the truck is dry and dusty showing no signs of ever leaking. I'll let you know how that turns out. Or does the shift lever normally get hot on a 150 mile drive, with a 2000 TRD V6?? Other than that I loved it. It sure is great having all this extra power, (SC 3.4) after having driven my '87 with a carbureted 22R since 1987. Feels like I'm in an off-road sports car, j/k
