I just baught a '99 tacoma and it has 75,000 miles on it. I'm wondering what needs to be done at 100,000 miles? I'm running a 2.7L 5spd in my '99. This is a completely different engine then my '92.

I'm still new at owning a Tacoma. I owned my '92 for 6 years and just recently sold it to buy my new truck. I have never been happier.

Thanks for everthing in advanced.

Most importantly - sometime between now & 100K
You should have your timing belt changed - 90K recommended
along with everything else related-
T- Belt, water pump, T-stat, drive belts

Good points! One thing to add, though, is that he has a 2.7L, which has a timing chain, instead of a belt, and I think the chain does not need to be replaced til it's time for a rebuild (at 300K?). My 2.7L is still going strong at 167K miles on original timing chaing - knock on wood! But yeah, if it were a 3.4L, then definitely get the timing belt replaced.

Thanks Amigo!
I guess I should have been paying closer attention-

More importantly like mentioned before, 90k will be your big service interval. The 90k service is the same that is done at 30k.

I wasn't aware that our trucks had timing belts. I really need to read up some more and stop worring about performance for a moment.

What would be the best place to look up maintainence issues for the years to come? I have the owners manual, but don't think it would be there really.

I was thinking that my truck had a chain instead of a belt.

Thanks to everyone already for the links. I'm gonna read over them soon and hopefully be able to keep the truck going strong. Does anyone know if the CV's should ever just be changed as a part of regular maintainence? I'm getting ready to lift the truck so I'm trying to do everything that is close to the front here in the next couple months since I'll be there.

for general knowledge, the owners manual is ok.. take a look at the service interval booklet as well. this will give you an idea of when and what to do maintenance on.

also check 4x4wire.com for articles.

i don't believe you change them (CV) unless they are not working. but the boots should be changed if they have rips in them.

you also re-grease them when you change the boots (check manual for type of grease).

Get a Haynes manual from an autoparts store - has all the recommended service intervals and how to do it!

timing chains can also stretch. im not sure how long it will take in a truck, but in my old xr80 the chain stretched causing the timing to get messed up so the piston hit the exhaust valve and bent it. this could be very $$$ if something similar happens to a 16 valve tacoma motor.

if your tacoma is indeed a 4cyl, 2.7(3RZ-FE), your engine has a timing chain
no need to do anything about it, till at elast 300K
I have just over 150K and I have done three tune-ups to my 1998
I usually just buy new NGK plugs and I have replaced the wires with NGK performance wires.
I have been running Mobile 1 synthetic oil i my whole truck since 80K miles
Good luck!!!
