I heard that the 2002 camry has a timing chain instead of a belt. Does it required to be change and if so when?

if it is indeed a timing CHAIN, there is no service required. a timing chain is made to live through the life of the vehicule. yet there will have wear over the years, and eventually you may start to hear it. if the noise gets excessive, you can change it, but must also change the sprockets, to have a nice "tight" fit, in order to eliminate the noise

2002 Camry with 4cyl VVTI has chain. I made the conscious decision to purchase a 4cyl specifically for this reason. Drove it until 2010 and it had 225,000 miles with zero problems. Currently have 2007 4cyl with VVTI and chain. 186,000 miles. Zero problems. Toyota dealer said it was the VVTI engines.

Camry All Camrys from 1990 to 2001 and V6s from 1990 to 2006 have belts which should be replaced every 60k miles. 4-cylinder Camrys built from 2002 on – and V6s from 1990 on – have chains.
