Gee, you bring up a point I had not considered. How did you come by this info? I'm do for the 90K service this summer. Is your info common knowledge with the Toyota service people? Thanks again,

I checked 90K service on my 4Runner and found they replace timing belt. I will check on the water pump issue as well as idler cable (which I believe is loose). Thanks for cluing me in on this aspect.

The 4.7L V8 is an interference engine so you don't want to take a chance on a belt breaking. 90K or 9 years, whichever comes first. It would definitely be expensive. The 4.7L was used in the 03-05 4Runner. Not sure if the 06 had a V8. The Tundra uses the same 4.7L. They are all interference engines so you should follow the required maintenance schedule. Please see attachment for the 2006 Tundra 4.7L V8

You can use the tool at the Gates site to see if your engine is interference.
