I believe it does have a belt.

Go to Gates Rubber Company's website and they have a timing replacement guide. They will state which engines are interference (that means curtains for the engine if the belt breaks). If it IS interference it's past the time.

If not, see what they recommend and go by that. Change the water pump at the same time because if the pump is bad it will ruin the belt and you'll be back to square 1.
