the forced induction market but by no means does it have no potential...Just ask Garm Oh and to clear up the cost of a 2az motor cheapest one I found was 1100 no transmission no ECU no wiring harness etc...cheapest with all that was about 2000 but with a 4spd auto complete. Oh and heres the application list for all vehicles that have a 2azfe in them... Most common application is the TC and Camry toyota

His mechanic never mentioned it to him either. I guess the idea of not doing it AT ALL is just foreign to me. But if it is fine and OK to leave it the cash savings certainly appeals to me Everyone - Basically the truck outside of needing an O2 sensor (which is getting done on Wednesday) runs AWESOME I do not hear any rattles or issues on start up so this Timing Chain idea is a completely preventative measure. (My old rav 4 sounded like it had an exhaust rattle when its belt was going) I guess its like this I love my new to me truck so MUCH I want to make it last as long as I can. And I dont want to look like the stupid girl cell phone in hand on the side of the highway who should of known better . I mean it looks pretty bad if you can kill a Tacoma while highway driving right P Thanks so much guys Josie It will probably say on the head or the intake manifold. If you looked up the vin of the truck it would probably tell you as well. I have the 3.4 5vzfe so I know more about that engine. Timing chains dont need to be replaced until very high mileage or the your engine shows symptoms of a worn timing chain. You should at least get 200-250k miles on the 1st chain. At that point the chain will probably have stretched out. Heres a pic of 3rz-fe (its from a T-100 but it should be very similar if not the same) Btw the 22r(e) came in 1981-1995 toyota hiluxpickups. When the Tacoma came out in 1995.5 it came with all new engines.
To keep things in perpective here the Rogues two major competitors are the top selling toyota rav4 and Honda CRV and they have almost identical power and torque numbers as the Rogue around 175 hp and there is no V6 option just like the Rogue (2013 redesigned rav4 dropped the V6). In 2008 when I purchased my Rogue I wasnt able to test drive a 4-cylinder rav4 the salesman told me it was a really poor
Id be willing to bet that next to the CRV the Rogue will feel noticably more powerful. The Roque will make more torque over more RPMs than the Honda so youll have more power-on-demand and likely have better acceleration and passing power. toyota tends to build motors similar in style to Nissan (torquier lower-redline broader powerband) so I imagine the rav-4 will be similar to the Rogue in that aspect.
