Celica's have a timing chain.

100,000miles (160,934km) is usually the standard change point.

The Timing CHAIN on our cars is not a DIY change...its a dealer thing...and if you beat the hell out of your car then yeah, 100,000 km may be a good point...I may change mine out at that time...and yes, most people change their timing belts out at 100,000 km (60,000 miles)

usually timing chain can last about 70k miles ~ 15k miles. If you plan to keep the car till 200k miles, it is a good idea to change it at 100k miles.

Timing chains in Celica's are expensive. You are supposed to change the 3 sprockets (one controls the VVTi), the chain guide & the chain it self. The parts are crazy money. The risk is if the chain slips or breaks, your valves will most likely come in contact with your pistons & ruin your motor. Personally I think you could easlily get 150,000 miles on a chain. Also, considering the cost of the chain & labour; I think your better to drive it until your motor self destructs & then put in a used motor.
