Please read the FSM for all torque specs.
In this video we change my timing belt and water pump in my 2002 Toyota Tacoma. This engine is the 5vz-fe 3.4L V6. Note check your cam seals and other seals that may need to be changed. Also if you know how to loosen the tensioner you can change them if they are bad.
SST can be made or bought. Here is the thread on the topic:
Also snap-on tensioner tool can snap your lower pulley timing belt tensioner. So take the time to remove your ac pump and the other bracket.
ALSO if you have red Toyota coolant continue to use RED Toyota coolant. You can only go back to red coolant if you flush the radiator.

Timing Belt Replacement
1.Install No. 2 idler pulley (if removed). Install and tighten bolt to
specification. Ensure idler pulley is clean and rotates smoothly.
2.Install No. 1 idler pulley and tension spring (if removed). Pry No. 1
idler pulley away from timing belt area as far as possible. Temporarily
tighten No. 1 idler pulley bolt. Ensure idler pulley is clean and rotates
3.Using crankshaft pulley bolt, rotate crankshaft so timing mark on
crankshaft sprocket aligns with timing mark on oil pump housing. See. This
will position keyway in crankshaft sprocket at 12 o'clock position.
CAUTION:If reusing timing belt, ensure reference marks on timing belt align
with reference marks placed on crankshaft and camshaft sprockets. Ensure
timing belt is installed in original direction of rotation.
4.Ensure all sprockets and idler pulleys are clean. Install timing belt on
crankshaft sprocket, oil pump sprocket, No. 1 idler pulley, and then No. 2
idler pulley in sequence.
5.Install timing belt guide with cupped side away from crankshaft sprocket
and flat side toward timing belt. Install No. 1 timing belt cover and new
6.Align crankshaft pulley key groove with key in crankshaft. Install
crankshaft pulley. Install and tighten crankshaft pulley bolt to
7.Rotate crankshaft clockwise so cylinder No. 1 is at TDC on compression
stroke. Ensure timing mark on crankshaft pulley aligns with mark on No. 1
timing belt cover. If reusing timing belt, ensure reference mark on timing
belt aligns with upper edge of No. 1 timing belt cover.
8.Rotate camshaft, and align hole in camshaft sprocket with alignment mark
on camshaft bearing cap. Install timing belt on camshaft sprocket. If
reusing timing belt, ensure reference mark on timing belt aligns with the
reference mark on camshaft sprocket. Ensure tension exists on timing belt
between the crankshaft and camshaft sprockets.
CAUTION:DO NOT rotate crankshaft counterclockwise, as viewed from timing
belt end of engine.
9.Loosen No. 1 idler pulley bolt 1/2 turn. Rotate crankshaft pulley 2 full
revolutions clockwise from TDC to TDC. 10.Ensure timing mark on crankshaft
pulley aligns with "0" mark on No. 1 timing belt cover, and hole
in camshaft sprocket aligns with alignment mark on camshaft bearing cap. If
timing marks are not aligned, remove timing belt and reinstall. 11.Rotate
crankshaft clockwise 1 and 7/8 revolutions and align crankshaft pulley mark
with 45-degree Before Top Dead Center (BTDC) mark on No. 1 timing belt
12.Tighten No. 1 idler pulley bolt to specification. Install No. 2 timing
belt cover and gaskets. Install and tighten spark plugs to specification.
13.To install remaining components, reverse removal procedure. Install all
bolts/nuts on right (timing belt side) engine mount before tightening to
14.On Camry, when installing control rod and bracket on strut tower and
right (timing belt side engine mount, tighten bolts to specification in
Timing Belt / Waterpump Replacement: Toyota & Lexus V6
Step by step DIY Video on how to replace the timing belt, waterpump,
camshaft and crankshaft seals, idler pulleys and tensioner on a Toyota or
Lexus with a V6 engine.
Procedure is the same for all 1994-2006 1MZ-FE (3.0L) and 3MZ-FE (3.3L)
engines, with the newer engines differing only in the timing belt tensioner
Procedure is straight forward starting with the removal of the dog bone
mount, engine support bracket, alternator and power steering belts, crank
pulley (harmonic balancer) and timing belt covers.
Once access to the timing belt is achieved, the tensioner is released so
the belt can be removed. The camshafts should be removed to get to the
waterpump, otherwise two studs running through the waterpump have to be
Special tools required are an impact wrench and air ratchet (not
mandatory), a seal puller, a pulley puller, torque wrench, and a crankshaft
and camshaft holding tool.
This job should take 4 hours for a DIY'er with moderate mechanical
aptitude. The Aisin timing belt kit with waterpump from RockAuto was used.
After the removal of the cam and crank bolts, the hardest part of this job
was dealing with the rear camshaft seal and aligning it with the marks on
the timing belt. Access is tight near the fender wall and removing the
power steering fluid line and reservoir is recommended.
Timing Belt - the Forgotten Belt (by Dayco)
Timing Belt - the Forgotten Belt. This video stresses the importance of
checking and following the manufacturers recommended replacement interval
for the timing belt. Along with recommendations to replace the "hardware"
associated with the Timing Belt (Tensioner, Water Pump, and Idler Pulleys)
at the same time the Timing Belt is being replaced. To find out more

1996 Toyota Tacoma 600,000 miles!
I bought this truck used with 33,000 miles on it. It still has the original
engine, transmission, air conditioning, back brakes (yes back brakes!)
water pump, Original K & N air filter. I change the oil every 5,000 miles
sometimes I go well over 12,000 miles without an oil change and that's the
truth! coz' I thought this truck wouldn't last any longer but it still goes
so I think it's time I baby this truck and change the oil more often. NO
additives were added to this engine like synthetic engine treatments. Why
do I have so many miles people ask? Coz' I used to work as a messenger
driver for a shipping company.
Update: My back brakes were finally replaced at 624,517 miles. This truck
is being maintained by my good friend and mechanic Tony at Glendora Auto.
676 E. San Bernardino Road, Covina CA 91723. 626-331-3100. You need an
honest mechanic if you want your truck to last!!!

How to Remove Stubborn Toyota 20R - 22R - 22RE Crankshaft Pulley Bolt 1979 - 1995
A long (but detailed) video on the tips and tricks I've learned over the
years on how to remove stubborn crankshaft pulley bolts on Toyota 22R
series engines. (22R 22RE 22RET)
By far, the best way would be to have the SST (shop specific tool) that
Toyota recommends, but not many folks (me included) has one of those in
their garage. This is a video of some of the tips and tricks that I've
learned over the years on getting this sometimes EXTREMELY stubborn bolt to
The most common reason that you need to be able to get this bolt out is so
that you can access the front main seal on the front end of the crankshaft.
Most older Toyotas develope an oil leak through the seal. Oil works past
the worn-out seal and then gets flung around the front of the engine and
engine bay by the crankshaft pulleys. It's really a pretty easy fix for a
very messy problem...if you can get the crankshaft pulley bolt off in order
to access the seal.
Toyota Tacoma Tundra 4Runner 3.4 V6 Valve Cover Gaskets Replacement Tutorial
Here I'm replacing the valve cover gaskets on my 98 Toyota 4runner, with
157,000 miles. The engine is the 3.4L V6 that is used in all 95+ Tacoma's,
96-02 4runner's, and 2000-2004 Tundra's. Its not a very difficult job to
do, but the biggest part of the job is removing the upper and lower plenums
to allow you access to the drivers side valve cover. If your just doing the
passengers side valve cover gaskets you don't have to remove the upper and
lower plenums. If you were to send this to a shop the labor charge would be
3.2 hr, and the job would runs about $400 with parts and labor. These 3.4
engines tend to run forever.
