Customer Question

My 2004 Tacoma has 64,500 miles and the dealer says I should change the timing belt at 90,000 miles or 10 years whichever comes first. Should it be changed?

Hello I will help you with your question,
Yes it needs to be changed. Rubber will be damaged by atmospheric ozone over time and there is a chance the belt could break after this much time on the engine.
It is not urgent but it does need to be done.
Please let me know how I can help you with your question.
Thank you
