Asked by Oct 10, 2015 at 10:54 PM about the 2005 Toyota Avalon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am thinking about buying a 2nd Owner Avalon with 92K miles.  The car has
rack and pinion not a timing belt.  I want to know when to have this service,
changed, or whatever?

The rack and pinion is part of the steering system. The timing chain or timing belt is part of the engine. Two totally different things. HTH. -Jim

Therefore, when does one need to service the timing chain? How many miles?

Timing chains are usually good for around 150,000 miles. Things like timing chain tensioners and guides may wear out sooner. But you'll hear noises coming from the engine before they fail. Frequent oil changes is the key to getting the most mileage out of these internal engine components. HTH. -Jim
