    I'll guess that someone has told @kalanz that your Tundra has a code P0016 indicating a stretched timing chain. Linked below is an excellent video (1:30:44) replacing the timing chain on a Toyota 4.0L V6. This is a huge job. Episode 5 shows the actual timing chain replacement. If you want to see how the diagnosis was made, start at Episode 1.

    Edit @kalanz: Starting at Episode 1 will be time consuming, but could actually be beneficial. There are other possible causes of code P0016 that have to be eliminated.

    Most timing chain jobs are far bigger jobs than belts. Looks like we have some good sleuths here on this forum.
