Timing belt is inside the engine, usually covered by a plastic box.

Since 2000, Toyota on Chain lor.

No need to worry de.  Chain will out last the car lor

 

As for the Sepertine belt photo you shown, check for breakage every 100kkm.  or Now and then when free. Change if necessary

 

I ownself change at about 150kkm lor ...... no breakage .......... For the stake for cheap DIY.

That means its safe to assume my 2007 fielder is a timing chain?

I really hope its a timing chain,timing belt seems really troublesome

Yup,just want to be safe

Actually I did some research it seems that 1998 Corolla onwards,all Corolla uses timing chain

But I am afraid if that applies to fielder also?

Yes. Should be ......Their engine have no fancy name ...... only model number like NZZ FEZZ ......

 

 The last time my timing belt broke, on expressway, is 1998 lor.  Lucky the valve never got in the way of the piston ..... a Fiat.

 

Borneo Motors SE always like to say then ...... Chain Timing ..... AND bonus ...... No engine break in required.  You can floor the engine immediate collect new car ..... sure bo ?? Never try .......

 

Now all like chain already.

 

Kia, Hyundai  .... 2005 1.8L onwards.

 

 

my car engine is VVT-I

Maybe from rust, pick up from the pulleys.

 

It's actually quite common. I've seen quite a few.
