Timing belt for a 2005 Toyota Corolla type S

I am interested in buying a 2005 Toyota Corolla type S that is for sale at a dealership nearby but I just had a horrible experience with a 2002 Hyundai Sonata and the timing belt. I was wondering if anyoone knew at how many miles your are supposed to change the belt and any opinions you may have about this car?

Well you are in luck if that is your concern. The '05 Toyota Corolla has a chain instead of a belt. The recommended mileage I am not sure of but it will be listed in the owners manual. Most of the timing belts are recommended at no later than 90, 000 miles. The timing chains I have done I did because of a chain guide issue. They do get some slack in them but they aren't going to cause you to be broken down on the road with engine problems like a belt can.
i hope this helps, please remeber to rate this fix.

Toyotas are ok cars you need to change the tiing belt at about 50 to 60 thousand miles to keep it running at its best. thats for most vehicles you buy these days..i would shop around a bit ore before you decide on any one car to be sre you are happy with it completely.

2005 corolla makes a very loud noise -squealing type - when first started, as it warms up the noise is barely noticable.


Sounds like you have a loose belt. A cold belt is stiff and slippery, but gets softer and more tacky when it is warm. The belt may either be worn, or just loose. If just loose, there may be a way to tension it, but in most cases, the belt is worn and needs replacement.

your best bet is to get a used ecm form a salvage yard it should cost you about 200 dollars that is far cheaper than going to a dealership or a parts store. generally that is what i do when i replace ecms. there are plenty of wrecked vehicles and the ecm is good in them so why pass it up to get a part that cost brand new about 1500 dollars.. goodl luck. please rate this
