Average replacement mileage for a timing belt is around 60,000 miles. Many cars I have purchased had over 100,000 miles on them and had never had the belt replaced. Try to use original equipment belts or high quality after market belts when replacing. Cheap belts will not last as long and could cause serious problems if neglected(example cheap alternator belts will squeak, stretch easily, and not hold up.). I always replace all the belts when doing a job this intense. If your car has high miles it is a good idea to replace the water pump at the same time you do the timing belt.

The Drive Belt (used) should be between 60-100lbf. Check for wear and any cracks on the belt. If you have a new belt the tension will be higher, that is bewteen 100-150lbf. Use a belt tension checker to measure this. Adjust the tensioning bolt located beneath the alternator until the tension is met. Hope that help you out.

How do i change the water pump on my 1996 toyota corolla

The water pump is driven by the timing belt. You should plan to replace the belt while you are in there. Below is a picture that shows the pump. and a link to show the steps.

This link I got from another sight. "Go to sign up and put in your year, make and model and under repair guides click on engine/engine overhaul and on the left hand side you will see water pump click on that, there you will find complete diagrams" From
