I know the 1.8 vvti has a timing chain instead of a belt, but what about the older 1.8 and 2 litre?

The 7A (1.8lt) and 3S (2.0lt) both have timing belts. Why you ask?

Timing belts should be changed every 60K miles(or every 5 years). Genuine belts have a sticker which is normally attached to the timing cover stating the date/mileage they were changed.

AFAIK both engines are 'non-interference' so a broken belt would not damage the engine anyway. That said, I would get them changed unless you can be certain when they were last done. Dealer 250+. Specialist 150.

I would choose these engines over the VVTI due to the excessive oil consumption of the latter.

I was recommended of the timing belt change a couple of years back (@58K miles) I did not do it till 2 weeks back but finally decided to change it at 74K miles. (you can be sure that the belt will go on for that long ;)) Toyota dealer price was 250, but other specialist did it for 125 (175 if you want a new tensioner as well) This was in Slough

If the engine cover's got VVTi on it then it's chain, if it hasn't it's the earlier belt driven - it was a gem, the best 4-cylinder engine Toyota ever made.
