Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
We have a 2003 Rav4 and 2004 Camry. I was told we have timing BELTS? Is this correct. And the tech guy at the dealership (to my surprise) said we don't need to change them. Is this correct?
Ok the Rav4 you have has a 2.0 liter 4 cylinder engine which does not have a timing belt, but has a timing chain. So no need to replace that.....also your Camry has a Timing Chain so no need to replace that either, unless you have V6 which at that point did had a timing belt...which will be replaced every 90K - 100K miles..!!! also check your fluid levels in particular transmission fluid...that can cause jerky shifts.

Actually, if the 2.4 liter engine has a maintenance-free timing chain- which does NOT need to be changed. However, if you have the V6 Camry, it does have a timing belt that needs to be replaced every 90-100K miles.

Not sure what you are doing to your car but unless you have one heck of a lot of miles on your car and are having problems with running then I wouldn't change the timing belt. Unless you just want to do some preventive maintenance.

Yes those vehicles have timing belts instead of chains. I have yet to see a timing belt that doesnt need to be changed at some point. Maybe the tech meant you didnt need to change them now. Each manufacturer has their own mileage interval, but generally speaking, anywhere between 60,000 and 90,000 miles they are due to be replaced.
