Hi all,

What is is major service schedule for the 2ZZGE?
Specifically, when is the timing belt & water pump due, and how can I tell if it has not been done?

The 2ZZ-GE uses a timing chain, not a belt, so no need to worry about that (though keep in mind chains do fail too, so it probably can't hurt to check the chain/tensioners and replace if necessary, though I'm not sure what an appropriate interval for this is, would be quite a bit longer than a belt though).

Also, with the water pump, it can be (relatively) easily accessed, as it is run by the serpentine/v-belt, so inspecting/replacing this shouldn't cost too much labour-wise as it's not a hidden part (like timing-belt driven water pumps are).
