What year Camry's have timing chains?

Was wondering what year Camry's have timing chains? I'm on my third timing belt in my 96 camry with just over 230k miles and still going strong.. Just wondered.. Thanks

I think only the 02 and up have a chain. Everything else before that had a belt

Well, its only the '02+ with the 4cylinder 2AZ engines that had the chain... the 1MZ and 3MZ V6's still have belts.

2009 Audi TT 2.0T --- THE BEAST!
2002 LE 4Cyl --- Gone, but not forgotten. 06/28/09

Glaring blue HID bulbs are NOT classy, and don't make your car look nice, no matter what that kid in the Civic told you.

When I asked the guy at the dealership, when i went to go get my car serviced, showed me a booklet which stated 00 and up had timing chains.. maybe we both misread it?

00 still ahd the 5SFE engine so it should have a belt. Like whitechocaltoe said the V-6's all have belts. the 4 cylinders are the ones with chains. Starting in 02 for the Gen5

If you go to the Toyota website (toyota.com) and look around, you can find a listing of all Toyota models for the past 15 years or so, that tells whether each model has a timing belt or chain.
