you cant really. often they break and theres really no indication of a problem except that it is broken. very old belts (130,000 miles perhaps) sometimes have cracks on them but to see the cracks you have to do about a third of the job of replacing it. its best just to have it replaced at the factory designated interval, (90,000 miles).
The 2006 Toyota RAV4 4cyl has a timing chain.
The benefit to replacing the timing belt on a 99 Toyota RAV4 is that it prevents catastrophic failure and it keeps timing accurate. As the belt wears, it may slip or break which can be very expensive to repair.
Your 2004 Toyota RAV4 has a timing chain that is designed to last the life of the engine.
The '99 Toyota Rav4 2-door has a timing belt, not a timing chain.
The 2.0 liter 4 cylinder in a 1999 Toyota RAV4 has a timing BELT ( it is NOT an interference engine , replace the belt at 90,000 mile intervals )
Type your answer here... I have a 2005 Toyota Rav4 with ninety thousand miles. Do I have a timing belt or chain and how much will it cost to replace it?
The 2.0 liter 4 cylinder in a 2003 Toyota RAV4 has a timing CHAIN
It's a chain
You don't. The 2007 Toyota Rav4 uses a chain and not a belt.
I know of no Toyota Rav4 that came with the 3.3 Liter engine which does have a cam belt. The 3.5 was installed in the Rav4 and it has a chain.
The Gates website ( they make timing belts etc. ) lists a timing BELT for the 2.0 liter 4 cylinder engine in a 1998 Toyota RAV4
According to the Gates website the 2001 Toyota RAV4 , 2.0 liter 4 cylinder , has no listing for a timing belt so it must have a timing CHAIN
I have a 2004 Rav4 with 80,000 miles, and it looks as if the timing chain is going out, is this something to consider repairing or should I look to sell?
my rav4 has a timing chain and i guess it all depends upon what kind of engine installed to youb rav4
under the drivers seat.
I believe that is 90,000 miles
The 3.5 liter V6 in a 2006 Toyota RAV4 must have a timing CHAIN , because the Gates website ( they make timing belts etc. ) does not list a timing belt
first you have to take the 487 gfd4 plug out and then replace the battery with the red cable to include the white so it works
Your 2.4 liter - 4 cylinder - has a timing CHAIN
