    Hi!
    This is a question from a new member and a new Toyota driver.
    I Recently bought my first Toyota Land Cruiser 90 from 2000, with 60000km (38000miles) on the meter. The powerplant is the 3.4 liters petrol engine.
    Last week I visit a Toyota garage beause of a strange sound from the engine and they tell me that I have to change all the moving parts under the Camshaft drivebelt cover. (Drivebelt, tensioner with weels, waterpump, etc.) This is a 1700$ operation! Has anyone else experienced this? Is this normal after this short milage?

    Hi Bestor
    I just had the same job done on same 1999 3.4V6 model for about $1400.00 at genuine 100,000Km and serviced by agent since new.
    I can't believe everything including the water pump needed changing unless its a design problem or wrong fluids.
    Ripped off again I guess and they didn't tighten the radiator bolts or put the clip back on the hose underneath. Next time I will do it myself or use a non Toyota shop at 25% of the price.
