Here is a link from Toyota's service site - says yours has a timing chain - lucky you, because timing belts are just plain STUPID - especially in zero-clearance (interference) engines where when it breaks you crater your heads or pistons because the pistons actually hit the now-mistimed valves.

Here also is a link where you can ndownload your owners/maintenance manual, if you have lost yours:

Timing chains have no regular maintenance interval - generally any nylon or ceramic timing gears are changed out anytime the engine is torn into to that point for another reason (like a valve job say), and of course anytime the timing gears/chain are exposede for other service they should be inspected for wear (which can cause slackness and noise), but otherwise generally last for at least 150,000 miles and commonly much more - generally for the life of the car (assuming they are metal like yours, not the plastic link type which are another joke entirely).
