Default timing belt

How hard is it to replace the timing belt? I have the TSRM. Should I replace the water pump at the same time? Should I just pay someone to do it? I'm not THAT car-savvy..... :-\

yeah. if you are doing it yourself mark the positions because my friend did his own timing belt and didnt mark his cam positions and he moved one of them and when he started it up he blew it to pieces. it was funny...but it wasnt at the same time. ha.

Dudes.

Not that car savy means he doesn't have the tools to break the crank pulley loose.

He should pay someone to do it.
Thos old crank pulleys are fragile and the oem replacement is toyota only at 350 bucks.

Yaaaa.. I knew what I was doing and it went to shite quite easily.

I called the stealership and they quoted my $350. What do you think?
