if it is indeed a timing CHAIN, there is no service required. a timing chain is made to live through the life of the vehicule. yet there will have wear over the years, and eventually you may start to hear it. if the noise gets excessive, you can change it, but must also change the sprockets, to have a nice "tight" fit, in order to eliminate the noise
