at 100000 miles


depends...it can be inspected ...some last 6-7 years some last forever... how many miles are on the car?? are you hard on the car..is it well maintained.. 100,000 miles


toy says 90,000 mine had 175,000 miles and changed it when i was in there to repair an oil leak some say>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.


This is a V-6.....do you have to replace the chain?

Replace it at 90K miles. It is expensive (1000 to 1500) but it you don't and it fails, it will leave you stranded and the engine will have to be replaced. Just Inspecting the timing belt requires a fairly radical disassembly so you might as pay the additional money and just replace it (a real timing belt inspection on the V6 will run about 1/2 the cost of replacing it).
