Toyota Rav4 Timing Belt Or Timing Chain (1996 - 2021)

From the model year 1996 to 2021, the Toyota Rav4 has various engines with either a timing belt or a timing chain. It also has both interference and non-interference engines.

Scroll down to see specific data for your model year below.

The timing belt (or chain) maintains the proper synchronization between the various engine components in a combustion engine.

If the belt or chain stretches or breaks, it can lead to catastrophic engine damage.

Timing belts have a recommended replacement interval, while timing chains are generally rated for the engines lifetime, although they need to be inspected occasionally.
