Timing belt or timing chain?

Just out of curiosity does the V6 engine have a timing belt or timing chain?

Chains might not break, but they do stretch. Then they skip.

Like anything, there is pros and cons for each. You want (almost) total reliability? Gear drive.

+296000 miles on my 4Runner. I asked about replacing it, they said it would last the life of the truck and it would be about$1600 to change it. It is going to last the life of the truck
