My Toyota Corolla has about 130 K showing,all original belts, the serpentine looks fine with no sign of checking on the under side. The timing belt,?? How many miles will they last, and does this engine...

Your 2003 corolla has a timming chain with no maintenance interval.
It is a good idea to replace your serpentene belt if it has not been replaced. Your motor is an interferance motor.
