    Corollas have used timing chains since 1998. There is no timing belt to replace. The chain should be good for the life of the engine.

    Check the owners manual its probaly reccomends every 7 years or 105000 miles which ever comes first. If it wasnt done before now sound like it might be overdue.

    I would recommend replacing it asap, it is one of the best maintenance steps you can take to prolong the life of your vehicle especially the engine. When you have the timing belt replaced go ahead and replace the serpentine belt and water pump since they are in the same area and have to be touched anyway. Like they say "pay me now or pay me later". Pay for this to be done now and there won't be a later. I had it done twice to my car and it is approaching 195,000.
