    I bought an '83 Toyota truck new in that year. It was equipped with the 22-RE engine. It had just over 400K on it when I sold it. Never changed the chain.


    Chains last forever if you keep clean oil in the motor and don't drive like a bat out of hell.

    Y'all answered my question before I could even ask it! I have an 06 with the V-6, about 135,000 miles, and was wondering about the timing chain since I looked and never found any replacement listed on the Toyota service history for the truck.
    But, since they seem to go 250,000 or more, I won't worry about it for a while! Many thanks!

    Timing chain will last a lot longer than 250K if you keep clean oil in the engine and don't drive the truck like it's a sports car.

    I'm pretty fanatical about my 5000 mile oil changes, and it's a pickup, not a Ferrari.
