100% OEM Parts
Monteros have timing belt driven interference engines that require a timing belt service every 60,000 miles. The 2nd most common reason that we see Monteros end up in junkyards (#1 being collision damage) is a blown engine resulting from a timing failure. Furthermore, we have seen countless failures of cheap aftermarket timing belt parts.
It is imperative to use only OEM parts for this service so we've gone ahead and put together a 100% OEM Timing Belt Kit that includes all 7 items that should always be replaced. Aside from having the correct parts, it's also crucial that these parts are installed correctly. That's why we include a copy of the Autodata instruction sheet in every kit.

Additional Recommended Items (not included in this kit) - Parts that are often a good idea to replace while doing a timing belt service:
  • Revised Crankbolt & Washer - If your Montero is still running with the original defective crank bolt, now is the time to get that out of there!
  • Tensioner Pulley Preload Tool - Special tool required for correct installation
  • Front Camshaft Seals - A common oil leak point, we recommend replacing these at least every other timing belt job (120,000 miles)
  • Front Crankshaft Seal - Not as common of a leak point as the camshaft seals, but worth replacing every other timing belt job (120,000 miles)
  • The following parts can be reused indefinitely but often get damaged during removal when trying to get to the crankshaft seal. So it's handy to have new ones on hand in case that happens so the job doesn't come to a standstill:
  • Crankshaft Position Sensor - We recommend replacing this sensor every 3rd timing belt service (180,000 miles).
  • Thermostat (97 Montero or 98-00 Montero or Montero Sport)- We believe in replacing the thermostat any time any major cooling system work is done or at the very least, every time you replace your coolant (usually every 5 years/100,000 miles).
  • Radiator Cap (Montero or Montero Sport) - A properly functioning radiator cap is an important but often overlooked part of a vehicle's cooling system.
  • Drive Belts (Montero or Montero Sport) - Inspect your belts for cracks/wear. This is a great time to replace them since they have to come off anyway to do the timing belt job, so there is no extra labor involved.
