Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2008 Rav 4
Timing belt or chain ???

1 Answer


Good News! Your Rav4 had two engine options, the 2.4 liter four and the 3.5 liter six and they both have a timing chain, not the dreaded timing belt. Your timing chain will not need to be replaced or serviced in normal use, just keep up with your oil changes.
