    AFAIK, newer corollas don't have a timing belt. They come with a timing chain which, as per my knowledge, does not require replacement.

    Mine is model 2009. I bought new. My understanding is that it has timing belt. How long will the timing belt last?

    VVti engines have a timing chain rather than a timing belt. The chain lasts for a long time however life of an engine is dependant on the driving habit and the maintenance routine.

    which model corolla re u talking about. i had the same concern and once during repairs did ask the mechanic to put a new belt in the car. my car is 2005 jdm corolla ,he showed me it was a chain and said it doesnt need changing until seldom it breaks etc. normally its said thats its life is 100000 kms, but i suspect the originality of the belts hence i changed it at 30 40000 km in my other car to ensure being safe.

    2009 must have a timing chain ,dont worry.they are reliable, seems u got a car in this series the first time, do take a look at this chain if for any other repairs you needed to get to open the head of the engine. or even if it happened take a look of chain of other cars etc in garage etc. in the last i would say dont worry,it has no belt and the chain lasts v long.

    Ok thanks but what about the rubber belt which drives the alternator and water pump, etc. It is visible from outside and looks to be in good condition even after 100,000 KM. When does it need to be changed?

    And by the way what is the cost of replacing this belt?

    Sir could you tell me what symptoms the car displays when the timing chain is in need of replacement? I've done 111,000 km on mine and would like to replace it if needed, but so far I don't know if the car shows any issues when its time, etc. My car DOES make a metallic grinding noise upon cold start ignition almost on a daily basis. The sound is the same as when you turn the key in an already running car. Could that be related to the timing chain needing replacement?

    YES..That Metal Noise Can Be Of Loose Timing Chain ....Hear It Carefully From Specific Area And Get It Inspected...Its Advised To Replace Timing Belt After Every 70k Km And Timing Chain After 100k (One Lac) Km Usually!

    Once my car was making a shar shar noise as I used to accelerate, not sure if it's the same grinding noise u talking about. In my case the problem was in the '' tapits'', some were jammed. The mechanic was an expert and diagnosed the issue. Tapits are on the head of the engine with the timing chain. Get this checked. But 2009 corolla is a new car it shouldn't have this problem. In my opinion if it makes noise during the acceleration then it shall be the Tapits. Get it checked. And do give feedback.

    No boss the car doesn't make noise while accelerating. It only happens when I'm starting it after it has completely cooled down, such as in the morning. And it only happens when I start the engine, for a brief second, after which it disappears. Will take it down to the workshop and try to explain it, because its very frustrating when the sound or noise or problem doesn't repeat when you take it to the shop. I will post an update in a separate thread so that anyone else facing the issue can see whats what. Thanks for your input.

    (If tapets are ok) It could be timing chain tensioner only and not the timing chain itself. Mechanics usually change chain as well along with the tensioner which is unnecessary in most cases.

    Thank you for letting me know sir. I'll be sure to keep that in mind when I go to the workshop.

    I'm guessing its a typo. He probably meant 34000. I've yet to hear about a corolla that ran for 3 million + km.

    I also have a 2009 corolla, 175k driven. It also makes this grinding noise on a cold start, but just for that breif moment when I turn the key, not after that. Other than that no other issue.
