Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was told by my mechanic that 1998 timing belts need replacement at 60,000 miles. Is

Hi, the reason I asked is to make sure it has a belt, From Toyota: Model Year Engine Belt / Chain / Gear 4Runner 1990-2000, 2010 4-Cylinder Chain...... 1990-2002 V6 Belt........ 2003-2013 V6 Chain .....so about 60,000 miles. You can go to: http://www.toyota.com/owners/web/pages/login ..have your VIN number ready and find out for sure instead of taking my word..because I am guessing.

David H25, Toyota confirms, the timing belt change is recommended at 7years or 90,000 miles for a 1998 4 Runner. When I related that service info to my mechanic he gave me some BS*****.
