Timing belt vs timing chain
I have an '02 Camry LE 2.4L 4cyl w/ 102K mi - does it have a timing chain or a belt that I should think about replacing?
It does have a timing belt, and 100k is a good mileage to have that replaced it. I would suggest having it done before your next oil change (2-3k miles from now). I have seen them go longer without a new timing belt, but it's best not to tempt fate.
somebody is full of shit one says a 02 camry has a belt the other says a chain who the hell is right!!
Nat. Average 128"000 miles tbelt I Would replace t belt waterpump.belts hoses Tension ans seals To start,make it last another 100"000 miles Mine has 250'ooo 3 belts 3 water pumps.never broke down knock
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.
See http://www.toyotaarlington.com/blog/2015/12/30/does-my- toyota-have-a-timing-belt-or-a-timing-chain/ If you have a 4 cyl you have a timing chain, rated for much longer life than a belt. If you have a belt - which would be true on a 6 cyl.
