Quote: I get a light rubber smell from my Montero when I drive it hard. I never suspected the timing belt, hmmm maybe I should? My Raider used to do it but eh never really hurt anything. Should I start worrying? Ive done a timing belt and water pump already (on my friends Raider), so its not going to be any real trouble. just fun finding time to do it. Now that I am reading this, I want to buy 2 new water pumps and timing belts and jump in
That "rubber" smell you're smelling is more than likely the engine paint we used on that motor when it was apart, not rubber.. and unless you did something drastic.. that timing belt was in perfect shape (put on at 151k or so) waterpump the same. We just put a new timing belt on your raider less than a year ago, didn't we?
