I believe it is a belt.
the belt is around 49
labor is 4.5 hours.
i would think about replacing the water pump, thermostat and drive belts a well.

Also idler pulley, tensioner pulley and tensioner.
1MZFE engine only for that year, it has a timing belt, retail cost of parts, and labor to replace belt water pump antifreeze both cam seals, crank seal tensioner and idlers here in CA is approx $850. Make sure if you are comparing prices that each repair shop quotes for same parts and labor operations.
