Hi, 2GR-FE V6 has actually a timing chain. This was a deciding variable for us once we got our 2007. Many of Toyotas new engines have chains rather than belts.

Speaking the which, mine wife"s "02 Highlander is going to require a timing belt readjust soon on she older 3.0L MZ-series V6. D"oh. :?
My wifey"s Lexus has the very same 3.0 engine and also we had actually the rubber belt changed out together required. Her 3.0 runs like a top. But, boy deserve to we phone call the difference in between her 230 hp in a heavier RX300 matches the 269hp in mine lighter RAV. She"s obtained over 170k top top the clock and refuses to trade it in because that something new. From our suffer there is naught wrong v a rubber time belt, as lengthy as you readjust them acccording to schedule. I have actually personally changed a few timing chain on mine old Chevys to know that metal chains deserve to stretch and break, too, yet are much much less prone come breaking.

Yeah there"s nothing wrong through rubber belts, various other than needing routine replacement every 80-100k miles to the track of $700+ on an OHC V-engine. :lol: It"s lot less big of a deal on one Inline engine. Consumers have wised as much as this and strongly favor "lifetime" chains. Especially used, girlfriend don"t have to wonder if the vault owner changed the time belt or not, and if the particular engine in your auto will grenade itself if it snaps. Many engines nowadays perform seem to be interference species which will certainly grenade if the belt snaps.My mam won"t sell her Highlander either. Too attached to it, however I keep telling she if she desires to acquire something else to carry out it now. It has like 87k mile on it. No dealership will touch a auto with over 100k about here (they lowball large time) for this reason we"d have to privately offer it, which neither of us have time to do.That 3.0 has power. It"s just too locked under in the overly conservative shift mapping top top the RX/HL. If you want anything much more than 3000 rpm you pretty much have to floor it, and also that throttle pedal feather is mighty stiff. The RAV is the exact opposite and also has an ext power and gives you 4000 come 5000rpm conveniently even if friend don"t desire it. I"ve thrust the Highlander about town (solo) through that puppy locked under in "2", and also yes the does move!
