SOURCE: Does the 2003 Toyota Corolla Z1 motor have a timing belt or chain

I don't believe it has a belt !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The one I have 2003 Toyota Corolla has timing chain.
And I think all 2003 Toyota Corolla have timing chains.
So don't let them ( workshops) lie to you.

Sounds like you have something locked up.

Take a picture/draw a diagram of serpetine belt routing.

Remove the belt, then try turning each individual item the belt powers to see which one is locked up.

I'd start with the AC Compressor first, then alternator, the belt tensioner, power steering pump, and whatever else is powered by the belt.

I BELIEVE THAT IT HAS A TIMING CHAIN. IT SHOULD BE CHANGED AT OR ABOUT 100,000 MILE. BUT IT DOESN'T NECESSARILY NEED TO BE CHANGED THEN, JUST INSPECTED.

What are the symtoms of timing chain failer Does it turn off while driving or motor shakes.


If the timing belt were broken, the car would not be driving at all. If those codes weren't confused with another symptom it could be the car needs a tune up. You should think of when the last time plugs, wires, air filter were replaced. If they're pretty new, it could mean a cracked cam shaft sprocket has the engine out of time. Honestly, a full tune up would be cheaper than paying a mechanic to tear down and close up the engine. Good luck!

Does my 2001 Jeep cherokee 3.7 have a belt or chain?


Chain, belts are for smaller engines that don't have alot of torque or stress on them. If your vehicle is a V8 there is noway that it would have a belt. and even a V6 being a SUV wouldn't be either. Hope I could help.

98 Jeep Cherokee sport 4.0 turns but won't start. i'm stumped


Yes. It is possible the timing chain popped. it is also possible you cracked the block. If there is a Distributor on the vehicle remove the cap and watch the rotor as you crank the motor. If the rotor turns your timing belt should be good or at least attached. If the Rotor doesn't turn when you crank the motor the Timing chain is broken. If the Timing chain appears good do a compression check and see if you have compression on ALL cylinders. If you lost compression on any cylinder you'll need to rebuild the engine. It could be bad rings, a broken Crank shaft or connecting rods. Only way to find out is to remove the oil pan and check them all and if you have to replace the rings you'll need to remove the head to get the pistons out to put new rings on. Get a Haynes repair manual on the vehicle so you have illustrations and directions on how to repair everything.

Does V6 Cherokee Larado have a timing chain or belt?


First off, if you have a 2004 Grand Cherokee with the 4.0 liter 6 cylinder engine, then it is an inline 6 rather than a V-6. To answer your question, it has a timing chain.

How to change a timing belt on a 1998 jeep cherokee?


Your Cherokee doesn't have a timing belt, it has a timing chain. Chain's don't require regular maintenance like belts.

Do you need to change the timing chain on a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee at 75,000 miles?


You will not need to change a timing chain unless you know or suspect it to be bad. Belts and other material that wear down need to be changed but the timing chain itself is a metal similar to that of a bike chain but much shorter and thicker

Timing chain/belt and water pump


On your Jeep Cherokee you have a timing chain that is made to last a much longer time then timing belts, under normal service it is not requred to change, on the other hand it is recommened you replace the water pump and all coolant hoses and renew the coolant.
