I called the Toyota dealer in Asheville and the service manager confirmed that my 2003 Camry 4 cylinder has a timing chain and she confirmed that the website was incorrect. I must say I'm a little surprised that the website is incorrect but then again Toyota has lots of cars and I guess it would be next to impossible to be totally correct each and every time on every model/year on a continual basis for a website.

The service manager said something that piqued my interest and so I looked at the engine ID number and it turns out that the 4 banger I have is the "2AZ-FE" engine with a timing chain and the Toyota website does state to change the timing belt on the "1MZ-FE" engine only which is the 6 cylinder engine. So, technically speaking the website is not incorrect, just a little vague.
All the more reason to own a Toy!

The coolant the dealer sold me for both my 2002 Sienna and 2004 Camry says "Toyota Long Life Coolant". It is red.
Is this the stuff that is supposed to work for 10 years or 100,000 miles in my Camry before replacing? It also appears to not be pre-mixed, becuase it talks about mixing on the bottle, but I guess that's not a given.

I'd check with someone knowledgeable at the dealership to make sure it's the real deal -- good for 100K miles. Also read the label carefully.
The label should clearly indicate if it's full-strength or requires dilution with water. It sounds like you have the full-strength type.
