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

2003-2008 Corollas have timing chains which don't require replacement. You're good to go.

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
