I cannot see any reference regarding the exact problem you have apart from the timing alignment. Why do you suspect a inlet gasket problem? What are your symptoms?

I am looking at a 2002 Camry with 110,000 miles and was wondering whether this car has a timing belt or chair. If it is a belt, then I am guessing that it is time to replace it. A friend told me that they thought this car had a chain which means it probably doesn't need to be replaced.

The CD 1MZ-FE engine is equipped with a timing belt and should be replaced every 90,000 miles. Check the ID plate on your engine to see what engine you have. If any other than what I stated above it will have a chain.

Hello,

Check the images below

Installation

1. Install¬ No.¬ 2¬ idler¬ pulley¬ (if¬ removed).¬ Install¬ and¬ tighten¬ bolt¬ to¬ specification.¬ See TORQUE¬ SPECIFICATIONS.¬ Ensure¬ idler¬ pulley¬ is¬ clean¬ and¬ rotates¬ smoothly.
2. Install¬ No.¬ 1¬ idler¬ pulley¬ and¬ tension¬ spring¬ (if¬ removed).¬ Pry¬ No.¬ 1¬ idler¬ pulley¬ away¬ from¬ timing¬ belt¬ area¬ as¬ far¬ as¬ possible.¬ Temporarily¬ tighten¬ No.¬ 1¬ idler¬ pulley¬ bolt.¬ Ensure¬ idler¬ pulley¬ is¬ clean¬ and¬ rotates
smoothly.
3. Using¬ crankshaft¬ pulley¬ bolt, ¬ rotate¬ crankshaft¬ so¬ timing¬ mark¬ on¬ crankshaft¬ sprocket¬ aligns¬ with¬ timing¬ mark¬ on¬ oil¬ pump¬ housing.¬ See Fig.¬ 4.¬ This¬ will¬ position¬ keyway¬ in¬ crankshaft¬ sprocket¬ at¬ 12¬ o'clock
position.

CAUTION: If¬ reusing¬ timing¬ belt, ¬ ensure¬ reference¬ marks¬ on¬ timing¬ belt¬ align¬ with¬ reference¬ marks¬ placed¬ on¬ crankshaft¬ and¬ camshaft¬ sprockets.¬ Ensure¬ timing
belt¬ is¬ installed¬ in¬ original¬ direction¬ of¬ rotation.

4. Ensure¬ all¬ sprockets¬ and¬ idler¬ pulleys¬ are¬ clean.¬ Install¬ timing¬ belt¬ on¬ crankshaft¬ sprocket, ¬ oil¬ pump¬ sprocket, ¬ No.¬ 1¬ idler¬ pulley, ¬ and¬ then¬ No.¬ 2¬ idler¬ pulley¬ in¬ sequence.
5. Install¬ timing¬ belt¬ guide¬ with¬ cupped¬ side¬ away¬ from¬ crankshaft¬ sprocket¬ and¬ flat¬ side¬ toward¬ timing¬ belt.¬ Install¬ No.¬ 1¬ timing¬ belt¬ cover¬ and¬ new¬ gasket.
6. Align¬ crankshaft¬ pulley¬ key¬ groove¬ with¬ key¬ in¬ crankshaft.¬ Install¬ crankshaft¬ pulley.¬ Install¬ and¬ tighten¬ crankshaft¬ pulley¬ bolt¬ to¬ specification.
7. Rotate¬ crankshaft¬ clockwise¬ so¬ cylinder¬ No.¬ 1¬ is¬ at¬ TDC¬ on¬ compression¬ stroke.¬ Ensure¬ timing¬ mark¬ on¬ crankshaft¬ pulley¬ aligns¬ with¬ "0"¬ mark¬ on¬ No.¬ 1¬ timing¬ belt¬ cover.¬ If¬ reusing¬ timing¬ belt, ¬ ensure¬ reference
mark¬ on¬ timing¬ belt¬ aligns¬ with¬ upper¬ edge¬ of¬ No.¬ 1¬ timing¬ belt¬ cover.
8. Rotate¬ camshaft, ¬ and¬ align¬ hole¬ in¬ camshaft¬ sprocket¬ with¬ alignment¬ mark¬ on¬ camshaft¬ bearing¬ cap.¬ See Fig.¬ 2.¬ Install¬ timing¬ belt¬ on¬ camshaft¬ sprocket.¬ If¬ reusing¬ timing¬ belt, ¬ ensure¬ reference¬ mark¬ on¬ timing¬ belt
aligns¬ with¬ the¬ reference¬ mark¬ on¬ camshaft¬ sprocket.¬ Ensure¬ tension¬ exists¬ on¬ timing¬ belt¬ between¬ the¬ crankshaft¬ and¬ camshaft¬ sprockets.

CAUTION: DO¬ NOT¬ rotate¬ crankshaft¬ counterclockwise, ¬ as¬ viewed¬ from¬ timing¬ belt¬ end¬ of¬ engine.

9. Loosen¬ No.¬ 1¬ idler¬ pulley¬ bolt¬ 1/2¬ turn.¬ Rotate¬ crankshaft¬ pulley¬ 2¬ full¬ revolutions¬ clockwise¬ from¬ TDC¬ to¬ TDC.
10. Ensure¬ timing¬ mark¬ on¬ crankshaft¬ pulley¬ aligns¬ with¬ "0"¬ mark¬ on¬ No.¬ 1¬ timing¬ belt¬ cover, ¬ and¬ hole¬ in¬ camshaft¬ sprocket¬ aligns¬ with¬ alignment¬ mark¬ on¬ camshaft¬ bearing¬ cap.¬ See Fig.¬ 2.¬ If¬ timing¬ marks¬ are¬ not
aligned, ¬ remove¬ timing¬ belt¬ and¬ reinstall.
11. Rotate¬ crankshaft¬ clockwise¬ 1¬ and¬ 7/8¬ revolutions¬ and¬ align¬ crankshaft¬ pulley¬ "0"¬ mark¬ with¬ 45 degree¬ Before¬ Top¬ Dead¬ Center¬ (BTDC)¬ mark¬ on¬ No.¬ 1¬ timing¬ belt¬ cover.¬ See Fig.¬ 5.
12. Tighten¬ No.¬ 1¬ idler¬ pulley¬ bolt¬ to¬ specification.¬ See TORQUE¬ SPECIFICATIONS.¬ Install¬ No.¬ 2¬ timing¬ belt¬ cover¬ and¬ gaskets.¬ Install¬ and¬ tighten¬ spark¬ plugs¬ to¬ specification.
13. To¬ install¬ remaining¬ components, ¬ reverse¬ removal¬ procedure.¬ Install¬ all¬ bolts/nuts¬ on¬ right¬ (timing¬ belt¬ side)¬ engine¬ mount¬ before¬ tightening¬ to¬ specification.
14. On¬ Camry, ¬ when¬ installing¬ control¬ rod¬ and¬ bracket¬ on¬ strut¬ tower¬ and¬ right¬ (timing¬ belt¬ side¬ engine¬ mount, ¬ tighten¬ bolts¬ to¬ specification¬ in¬ sequence.¬ See Fig.¬ 6.¬ On¬ MR2, ¬ tighten¬ engine¬ mount¬ bolts¬ in¬ correct
locations.¬ See Fig.¬ 7.¬ Adjust¬ drive¬ belts¬ to¬ proper¬ tension.

How often would a timing belt need replacing for a car like mine? How much noise, if any, should it make?
Also, does this model tends to leak a lot with the water pump and gaskets?
How much of a safety factor are any of these issues? Thanks.

Hi there,

the Camry 5S-FE engine in your car should have a new bet every 150,000 Kms around 90,000 Miles.
There should be no audible noise from the belt or pulley bearings, there should be no coolant leak from the pump at all. If the pump fails you run the risk of blowing a head gasket or destroying the engine if it is severely over heated, if a timing belt breaks, you will do serious valve damage in the cylinder head.
