Manufacturer says at 60,000 miles if the same driver on the car then can go further. have seen 100,000 without change after that its a real gamble not to. many engines are damaged if the chain breaks. all cars are out of commision when it happens. hope this helps. 12 year old camry is hard to say-=depends on mileage. good luck

Hours to replace toyota camry time belt


What engine?

the 2.4 has a timing chain and the chain should not need to be serviced under normal driving conditions.

The V-6 has a timing belt. Book time is roughly 3 hours. Add another 1/2 hour if you want to replace the water pump at the same time.

How often do you need to change a timing belt on a 1998 camry , and what happens if it brakes


Most manuals recommend checking every 50k and replacement at 150k. If it breaks while the engine is running, especially on the road, the repair cost 4 times as much because it will most likely damage the valves and the piston heads. The Haynes and Chiltons repair manuals, both are good and available, can explain replacement and checking methods. I use the timing checks as a guide for checking the Belt/chain. If your timing is bouncing all over the place your belt/chain is probably stretched or the device meant to keep tension on it is not working properly. Some vehicles with Timing belts as opposed to chains have a tensioner built in to maintain the proper tension on the timing belt. That are also a few vehicle that employ this with a timing chain.

Belt or Chain


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.

Does 98 toyota camry have timing belt or chain? When do I know if it needs to be replaced? Has 140000 miles on it. Have been told if belt snaps, it can destroy engine.


Both the 4 and 6 cyl. engines in this car have belts. The 4's don't last as long because they lack a tensioner and get noisy. Toyotas for the most part do not get hurt when the belt breaks. non interference engines...nice huh?
