SOURCE: timing belt or timing chain?

You 98 Corolla has a timing chain that it internal and need no normal maintenance. It uses a hydraulic/spring tensioner to keep things tight and as long as its quiet, everything is fine.
Your drive belt (not to be confused with a t. belt) is the external belt you see on the passenger side of the engine. It drives you alt, water pump, A/C and power steering. It uses a spring loaded tensioner to keep the belt tight. These can weaken over time and cause a rattle noise and belt slippage.

Does the 2006 Volvo S40 1.8l petrol model have timing belt or timing chain?

Belt, and in the 2006 it's due to be changed at 120000 miles. I wouldn't wait that long in an interference engine though. If it breaks, your engine is often toast when the valves and pistons impact.

The key is to not just replace the belt, but the idler pulley, tensioner pulley and the water pump while you're in there. Some people suggest going the water pump every OTHER belt (and pulley) change, but to me it's cheap insurance to do it every time.

Your car actually has a timing belt that should be changed along with the tensioner at 70,000 Miles. In the past, I have found that the first question people ask is when was the timing belt replaced.
