60,000 is the recommended miles, but they will go 90,000 in most cases depending on how easy the car is driven, around town more often.

Well from what I understand the newer corolla has a timing chain that never has to be replaced. Plugs..replace them when u have hesitation in the engine/skips and the mileage on it makes sense. Why spend the money when you don't have to. Those plugs/wires could last 200k. I'm at 105k with factory and haven't missed a beat yet!

Timing chain installation


1996-1999 Toyota Corolla valve timing:
It is very easy to install the timing belt on 1997 Toyota Corolla. Do the following:
- Mark the numbers 1,2 and 3 on the spark plug wires with permanent marker or nail polish and remain the 4th one unmarked. This is necessary so that you can easily remember the spark plug wires order later on their original position.
- Remove the spark plugs so that the engine can easily be rotated.
- Rotate the crankshaft clockwise to align the v- groove mark on the crankshaft pulley with the 0 mark on the timing belt cover. If these marks are aligned the piston is always on the Top Dead Position (TDC).

- To replace the timing belt remove the crankshaft pulley, upper and lower timing covers.
- Temporarily screw in the crankshaft bolt in its place to rotate the crankshaft with the spanner and align the v- groove of lower crankshaft gear with the index mark on the oil pump cover as shown in the following diagram.
- Inspect the cam shaft mark through the small hole on the cam shaft sprocket. The punch mark should be exactly behind the hole on the cam shaft sprocket as shown in the following diagram.

- Loosen the timing bearing bolt, press the bearing forcefully against the spring with some suitable tool and lock it there temporarily.
- Remove the timing belt.
- Remove the timing bearing.
- Replace the new timing belt and bearing with the original.
- Install in the reverse order of dis-assembly.
NOTE: NEVER PUT EXTRA FORCE ON TIMING BEARING TO ADJUST THE TIMING BELT TENSION. JUST LOOSEN THE TIMING BEARING BOLT AND THE SPRING ATTACHED TO IT WILL PULL THE BEARING IT SELF WITH THE PRESET TENSION TO ADJUST THE TIMING BELT.

Alt belt has tensior 2005 corol


I can't understand what you wrote/didn't write but that was the fluid filled shock absorber tensioner that failed often(leaked fluid out)which would take away it's ability to tension belt correctly-Good Luck,JT

Does a 2006 corolla 140i have spark plugs


Hi,
Yes it does. I found a site with pictures detailing how to access the spark plugs for replacement. (recommended every 60,000 miles) Plug gap is 1.1mm. Remember to dissconnect wiring and replace plugs one at a time to eliminate the chance of connecting wrong wire to wrong plug position. Wiring must be connected exactly as removed. Check out his page, requires minimal tools and labor.....Please rate this answer! Thanks, Mike

The Maintenance Req indicator light is on. The car is a 2005.


That's a mileage-based indicator that is there to remind the driver that, based on the mileage on the car, some service interval has arrived. It's NOT a signal that there's been a fault or failure. Being that you have a Toyota, the typical timing service interval is every 60k miles (replacement if you have a belt, inspection if you have a chain). At that interval, the water pump, thermostat, accessory belt(s), spark plugs, timing tensioner (for a belt), and all fluids and filters are typically replaced, as well as an inspection of the brakes and suspension, and a tire rotation. It's a costly service but it's important. That's probably why your light has illuminated. Take a look in your owner's manual and look at the maintenance intervals -- you'll see what is due at this time.

sounds like you need an ignighter which controls spark and it can be found in the distributor under the cap it should have a plug (wire harness) on it.
