Year and engine model would help - vast majority of Camry's are belt driven
NOT chain. 22RE would be $800-1000! Belt is $199-250.

Hard to say actually. Head damage is possible and then you're talking
at least $1000 dollars. If the chain is merely worn and slipped a
tooth, a new one can be threaded in place assuming the sprockets are
still in good shape. That process should only take an hour or so.

But what car/engine are you talking about? A Camry new enough to have
a timing chain shouldn't be having problems.

Do you have a Corolla? Most Toyotas use rubber belts and can range from
about $150-270 for 4 or 6 cylinders.

Dealers get you in using a coupon and you can't get out usually for
less than $1000 after changing the water pump, idler pulleys, oil seals
and all belts. So ask for a "package price" before "handing over your
wallet."

An sample list of the 3sfe/5sfe timing parts to change:
(www.rockauto.com prices)
GATES TCK199 (kit of timing belt with two pulleys and instruction)
$84.79
GATES Part # K030295 PS belt $4.32
GATES Part # K050435 Alt/AC $12.12
FEL-PRO TCS45641 Cam seal $4.11
FEL-PRO TCS45920 Crank seal $6.04
BCA Part # 221820 Oil pump seal $2.71
AISIN (Toyota #16110-79185) water pump $58.79
