    When do you recommend changing out the water pump and timing belt on a 05 with a 4.0

    The 2005 up Tacomas use a timing chain and can go well over 200k miles. The water pump I'd say around 90,000 miles unless you notice a pinkish coral around the water pump, in which case it is leaking.

    Agree. The old belts were around 70-80K, the new timing chains are good for at least 200K.

    Maybe 20,000 miles with cleaning and adjustment as needed, but that's not important right now.

    I believe I used to do the points, cap, rotor, and the plugs at the same time, but that was some time ago. Wires too if they're looking bad.

    We're just messin with ya since you're new. Personally, I'd wait to replace the waterpump to 120K if there's no leak though you might want to change the serpentine belt.

    My first car was a 74 bug that I had to adjust points on. Oldest car I've ever owned was a 68 camaro but replaced the distributor with an electronic one. I've never seen a the cranks. 1920's or older?

    I think you're correct.

    I had a 73 Olds Delta 98 with a 455 and a 67 Plymouth with a slant 6 that I know had points. Pretty sure there were one or two more. Everything after those had HEI or similar, but you were always cleaning or replacing caps, rotors, plugs, and wires. Also rebuilt way more carbs than I care to count. People complain about how modern cars are too complex to diagnose and work on but I sure like them compared to the old stuff.

    I like my 2011 but I would prefer to not have all the electronics in it. I do like EFI but carbs on bikes. Next thing you know cars will park themselves! Ah! they already have that!
