    I've got 89,000 miles, 2005 V8. I've had friends go 150,000 miles before replacing. Anybody have one break?

    Don't let it break. 2uz-fe it is a interference engine. Major damage will happen.

    My 06 Tundra got about 130k before I realized I should probably look into it since I got the truck at 80k, and decided to replace it (and the water pump at the same time) before it was too late. Of course that was several years ago and I wouldn't rely on many belts to last 10+ years, specially one that could potentially cause some major damage if it were to break. If your pushed for cash you could probably put it off for a little bit (and I doubt anyone here would recommend that you do so), but there is a reason they say to replace it at 90k.

    What they all said! You don't want it to break. Mine went about 10 years and was replaced at 90k. As stated, replace the water pump also as it is fairly cheap and you'll be right there when you do the timing belt.

    I just did mine @ 296,346 miles last weekend. The last it was done was a t 140K. So thats... about 156k miles. I got lucky and it just skipped a tooth and didn't break. It's a solid weekend's worth of work but doable with a little mechanical knowledge. The A1Auto's youtube video was a lifesaver!
