No the 1ZZ-FE fitted to all MkIIIs has a timing chain.

..thanks for your replies..i did read in an earlier post that it was a chain, but wanted to check, as garage i've booked my car into said they could do it in a day????!!!!!..think i'll just pay for a service somewhere else, without the cost of a cambelt that the roadster doesnt have!

Check the service schedule in your service booklet or handbook. I think it should mention timing chain inspections at a certain point.

Also, be wary of getting that engine serviced by anyone other than Mr T; if you suffer the dreaded oil loss problems it's easier to get it done under warranty if you have FTSH (assuming you currently have FTSH - if you don't then you might as well get it serviced by any garage that you trust).
