1994 Toyota Tercel Question: Is there a way to check the timing belt on a 94 tercel without removing the vc
Answer #1ziptie12 October 29, 2012, 19:03Master
Why take the chance? Maybe you can contact the previous owner? The answer is no , but if you want you can just take it loose enough to pull out the t-belt cover.

elln, if you don't know the history of the car and i would not believe the previous owner, i would just change that timing belt and have peace while on your 2000 mile journey...otherwise, just worry about it every stop of the way, one of them might be that tercels LAST stop.
