2004 Toyota Corolla Q&A

2004 Toyota Corolla Question: timing belt or chain?

does my corolla have timing belt or chain? if a belt, does it need replacement at 60,000 miles as i'm being told? at what price? -
Answer 1
The 2004 Toyota Corolla with the 1.8L 4 Cylinder has a timing chain, not a timing belt. The chain is not a maintenance item and only needs replacement if there is a problem with it. Check with the RepairPrice Estimator for a price on the timing chain: http://repairpal.com/estimator -
Answer 2
2003-2008 Corollas have timing chains which don't require replacement. You're good to go. -
Comment 1
To clearly answer this for those that may come across it in the future. Corolla has a timing chain. I believe you are asking about the serpentine belt. Just check it for cracking and ware. I have over 100K on mine and it still going. However it is likely good preventative maintenance to replace it at 75K -
