David, just to clarify, since the OP asked under the 2005 model year, I will say that the Rav4 engines went from a timing belt to a chain in the 2001 model year.

Then I stand corrected, thanks Tom. The V8 engines in the Tundra, Sequoia, and 4Runner do have a belt. My bad.

I don't know what those guys were talking about in that forum....I didn't doubt you but sure enough the 2005 has a 2.4L and those V8's are the only engines Toyota make anymore with a belt

Yes, I pulled from the forums as well, so I can be wrong as well based on that info. I don't personally know. OP should check the owners manual as it will list it under maintanence.
