I have a 2001 Sienna and it needs a new timing belt. Can I do this myself and if so what else should I change while in there?

Asked by Aug 06, 2007 at 12:28 PM about the 2001 Toyota Sienna LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our Sienna has 91000 miles and needs a new timing belt.  I would like to do this myself but didn't know if I should.  If I do, what other parts should I replace while in there (water pump, etc)?  Is there a good guide to walk me through what I need to do to replace belt?

A Haynes manual will give you step-by-step detailed instructions on how to do this, with pictures. If you have never done this before or are a novice mechanic, I would not recommend it as a first repair. If the timing belt is incorrectly installed, internal engine damage can result from the pistons striking the valves.
