Question corolla timing belt?

I have a 1999 corolla 1.8 with 42000 miles and I want to see about changing timing belt. Talked to a garage close here and he thinks it has a chain and not a belt. Does anyone know for sure if this is the case?

Your 1ZZ-FE engine has a timing chain.

I highly doubt that is the case unless the previous owner completed a swap.

All 8th gen (1998-2002) Corollas sold in North America have the 1ZZ-FE.

In your first post you stated it was a 1.8. Isn't the 22R a 2.4?

Obviously that doens't add up. You may want to double check things. As stated by PhatRoyale if it's stock it's got the 1ZZ-FE with a chain.

My '99 has 210,000 miles on it and I am just now getting around to changing the timing chain for the first time. So I wouldn't panic if you don't get your 42,000 mile timing chain replaced this week. : - )

A local mechanic told me that getting the timing gears / cogs / sprockets / whatever-they're-called replaced is just as important or even more important than getting the chain itself replaced. That's what I came on here today to ask about, so I will be a good forum member and go post that in its own thread. : - )

Really doubt you have a 22r. 22r is 2.2 liters and is carbed.

Not to second guess you, but the 22R was in things like the old Hilux from a bygone era and never installed (by Toyota) into a modern corolla. Even then it is a chain drive engine, so no timing belt. We see high km 8th gens at work all the time and have never replaced a chain in all the time I've ever worked on them
