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 have 115,000 miles on my car and it runs great. Do I need to worry about the timing chain/belt replacement?


If it has a timing belt, the belt should have been replace at around 80,000 miles. So you are running on borrowed time.
If it has a chain, the chain and gears are designed to last the life of the engine, or around 200,000 miles.

I now have 98,000 miles on my car. How much longer can it last without major repair work?


150,000 miles is usually the mark for a timing chain engine to get the tensioners looked at. Other than that, the only known issues are all recalls or TSB's. The computer failure, which should have been done by now, and the engine belt tensioner going bad prematurely, replaced by a stronger design, and the clock going dim, which is a quick soldiering fix. Corollas are very, very long lasting cars as long as you do regular maintenance, oil changes every 5000 (basically when the light comes on, sooner if older or lots of hard driving), flush brake fluid yearly, coolant as specified, and (if applicable) automatic transmission fluid at the 30,000's, with a screener every other change. 200,000 miles is easy to come by on these cars. Also, don't get the Bendix engine belt. It's rubbish. Dayco or Gatorback will last a lot longer.

I have 103,500 miles on my 2002 nissan sentra when should I change the timing chain


The timing chain doesn't really have a maintenance period. They don't have a habit of breaking or stretching. Timing belts on some vehicles do have a recomended replacement period. Locate your local NTB, Firestone, or Sears for the maintenance schedule.

1998-2008 Corolla has a timing chain. So, your 2001 Corolla does not require a timing belt change, since it does not have one. There is no prescribed replacement interval for a timing chain. your chain will run over 200000 miles or longer.
