If you need to get back with me, please let me know if your model is just a Corolla, or the DX or LE model.
Well, I hate to say but from what I see, 1993-1997 Corolla's have timing belts and they suggest replacement every 60,000 miles.
MANUFACTURER'S SUGGESTED SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE
The manufacturer recommends the belt be replaced at 60,000 mile intervals for severe service operating conditions.
I don't see where this state's it is a interference or non-interference engine. All I can say is the belt should have been changed twice by now.
The sad thing my good friend, if that brakes, which a belt can go at anytime, yes, it can cause either minor damage or totally destroy your engine.
Now we can provide the directions on how to remove and replace if you would like. But I would certainly change it as soon as possible.
I provided a pic for you.
Also, the information I am looking at is for the 1.6L and the 1.8L engine.
