    I am new to having a 2001 Tacoma and am wondering about changing the timing belt. In the Toyota Scheduled Maintenance Guide it says p51 for 90,000 miles "Replace Timing belt (except RAV4, 4-cyl. Highlander and 4-cyl. Tacoma )". Well when are you guys changing your Timming Belts ? Thnx for any input.

    They do. As do the 1GR-FE engines.
