    I have been involved with most car engines manufactured in my country South Africa for the past 40 years and and very familiar with the method of driving cam shafts.
    For at least the past 30 years most smaller fcars are fited with timing belts, definately not chains!
    What era do you come from?
    Refer European Ford, GM, VW, Audi, MB, BMW etc. All use cam belts.

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.

I have a 1994 Toyota corolla changed the timing belt tensioner. trying to set timing, all marks line up except camshaft dots, can't get them to face each other without throwing off all the other marks

If you removed the tensioner and didn't lock the cams and crank down then you have to re-time the engine. It sounds like you let the exhaust and intake cams move.

Remove the spark plugs, put a ratchet on the crank pulley, slowly rotate engine until the cams line up. Once the cams are lined up remove, the timing belt and bring the crank around to the timing mark. put belt back on and let the tensioner go. put plugs back in...see if it'll start.

Timing belt diagram for toyota corolla 2000 ae112

easiest way to change a timing belt is to
first slightly slacken off the belt tensioner
carefully cut the old belt in half along its entire length while it is still on the engine.
remove the outer half only.
place the new belt on the pulleys up against the inner half of the old belt.
cut and remove the inner half of the old belt.
push the new belt fully into place.
re tension the belt as specified.

Need advice on replacing timing belt,can you help

If you're asking the interval, I would say every 80,000 mi. the timing belt should be changed.
