Why does my timing belt keep breaking on my Toyota tercel 1.5 3ee engine?

If you have been installing the timing belts yourself, you may not be adjusting the tensioner correctly. Also, the valve train may be binding, causing unusual stress on the timing belt. And timing belts are not expected to last hundreds of thousands of miles. My Toyota Corolla needs a new one about every 60,000 miles.
