    the Lexus she got in the divorce was a 96 - someone in Phoenix told her she needs a timing belt - (chain) - so - she needs a good mechanic that is honest and since I am outa the picture - hope someone will help...

    Thanks all - and I miss the internet and Cruisers...

    just poor white trash livin on the Rez now...

    I find it difficult to believe it needs a timing chain. I have only sold a couple in the last several years and they were replaced during over-hauls and were probably really OK to begin with.

    I thought the timing CHAIN was supposed to be changed at 300,000 miles or so.

    The mechanic probably thinks the LX has a timing BELT which are usually changed at 90,000 miles.
