It should be changed when/if it become noisey. I would probably replace it at about 250,000 miles otherwise just to be safe, but Toyota has no mileage recommendation for it.

Your 1999 corolla has a timing chain not a belt. No need to replace!

It's past due. But these belts will last up to 120,000 miles. When and if you do the timing belt replace all of the components in there. You only want to do this once. Shop cost is $600.00 to $800.00. Do it yourself about $225.00. If you do it yourself , buy a manual. Lots of important info.

I am trying to replace my timing belt on my 1992 Toyota Corolla [1.6 liter engine], but I cant figure out how to remove the gears the belt was on ,we already removed the belt because it broke .please give...


Why remove the gears? No need to. Just be sure they are clean of any belt residue. The gears are locked in the correct position for the shafts.
You need to rotate the gears to position the shafts (Crank and Cam) to the correct position before installing the belt. Follow the instructions that should have come with the belt. Usually need to line up some marks on the gears to marks on the engine case for the valve timing to work right.
Pull the spark plugs so you can turn the crankshaft easier (BY HAND ONLY) Mark the wires to reinstall correctly. I did this a long time ago. Seem to remember pointing the mark on one gear to the mark on the other gear. Use a straight edge to line up the two. Dont take this as gospel.
Good luck.
