Hey Scotty, I have a 93 Celica Convertible with gen2 3S-GE engine. Please tell me if it an interference or non interference engine. How often should I change the timing belt? Should I change it only by at a certain mileage or at specified time intervals like oil (once a year or 5000mi)?

ditto on the cracked thing.

non-interference motors have the fuel injectors mounted in the intake manifold. Interference motors have the injectors mounted directly in the cylinder heads. Change the timing belt once every 70,000 miles.

It's a non interference, And timing belts should usually be changed every 5 years or 100,000 miles. You can also take the timing cover off and look at the belt to see if it's cracked.
