Hi I own a Celica 99 7th gen vvtli motor
I'm just getting some research on the timing belt because I think I need to replace my one
Some people are saying that celicas have a timing chain and what I have on my car is definitely a timing belt?
Just confused so if anyone who has had experience with a timing belt could please give me some info

All 7th gens and 2ZZ-GE (VVTL-i) engines have timing chains.

Only the older Celicas have timing belts.

is it possible you're mixing it up with the serpentine belt?
