When should timeing belt be changed?

Your Corolla doesn't have a timing belt, it has a timing chain and these usually last the life of the car. If your talking about the serpentine that runs most of your engines externals i.e. A/C, alternator and power steering. Just check it every time you change your oil for cracks and such and replace when necessary.

My 1998 Corolla front wheel drive with 1.8 liter engine is getting gas but will not start. Does it have a timing belt, or a chain?

The 98' has a chain, not a belt. The chain should last the life of the engine. I think you have other problems with her not starting, Have you checked for spark at the plugs?

When should the timing belt be replaced


The Toyota Echo does not have a timing belt - its a timing chain. As such - provided the correct service schedule is followed a chain is expected to last the life of the engine and does not normally need to be renewed. There is no prescribed renewal interval for the timing chain on these engines.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Many Thanks.

Timing belt for a 2005 Toyota Corolla type S

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.

Toyota corolla engine stopped

hey, this isnt a solution (i dont think), just a comment, the corolla is equipped with a timing chain, located inside the engine with the cams, the belt that you see is a serpentine belt to run all other components like the altinator, water pump and ac. just letting you know. Hope this info is helpful!
