I've not heard of anyone needing to replace the timing chain.

There's a timing chain tensioner in the early models (93-94?) that can break. I think there's something on Christo's site or Mud.

There are also some electrical/computer issues with these years. This is all from memory (not experience):

- Early 93 computers had a recall -- check the model number
- Wiring harness in glove box and behind engine can wear/melt and cause weird symptoms
- EFI relay/wire is undersized and can overheat/fail

All of these issues are covered on mud.

And as has been mentioned, the 1FZ has a chain, not a belt. ALL OHC engines need their timing chains or belts replaced as a matter of routine maintenance.
