2001 Toyota Camry

My car is a 2001 camry, 4cyl. With 106000 miles.
I know that certain cars have top of pistons machines out, so that if timing belt strips and the valves go against pistons they(valves) will not bend, but I'm not sure if my car has that precoutionary measure.
Also, is there a way to check the condition of my timing belt without having to remove it. I just bought this car and no maintanance records are available. I would rather not mess with the timing belt unless its in bad shape.
Do you

5SFE MOTOR THE 4CYL TOYOTA MOTOR IS NOT INTERFERENCE
IF YOU HAVE GOOD SVC RECORDS CHECK TO SEE IF IT WAS REPLACED AROUND 60K MILES WHEN IT IS RECOMMENDED. TO INSPECT IT YOUR SELF TWO 10MM
BOLTS ON THE TIMMING COVER IT USUALLY HAS ENOUGH CLEARANCE WHEN MOVED BACK TO SEE THE BELT CONDITION, HINT GET A REPLACEMENT SPRING FOR TBELT TENSIONER WHEN REPLACING
