AnswerInformation found at this website: There is a table that identifies which Toyota products have timing belts or chains based on model year and engine.


Timing Belt Maintenance

Question What maintenance is required on Toyota timing belt?

Answer If the vehicle is 1999 or newer and is equipped with a timing belt, you should replace it every 90,000 miles or six years, whichever comes first. For all other Toyota vehicles equipped with a timing belt, it is recommended that the belt be checked with the other drive belts at 60,000 miles or four years, whichever comes first, and every 15,000 miles thereafter and replaced if necessary. Because inspection may cost about as much as replacement, many customers may find it more cost effective to replace the timing belt at 60,000 mile intervals.

If the timing belt breaks while the vehicle is being driven, severe engine damage could result. The higher the speed, the more extensive the damage could be.

For additional questions, refer to your Scheduled Maintenance Guide or Owner�s Manual Supplement or contact your local Toyota dealership.

AnswerThe 2001 Celica GTS using a timing chain and shouldn't have to be replaced for at least 120,000 miles.

From what I have been told by Toyota savvy folk about the 2000-2005 Celica timing chain, it should last the lifetime of the car with no replacement. God bless timing chains vs. belts!!

Your 2000 Toyota Celica has a chain and not a belt. The chain requires no maintenance.

The timing "chain"will start rattling at around the 100k to 110k mark. This is when it should be replaced
