FordNut is right. No need to worry about it any time soon. Especially since you only have 100,000 km on it. That's only like 60,000 miles. I wouldn't worry about it until its got at least 100- 120,000 miles or 180- 200,000 km on it.

The 2002 Cavalier has a timing chain, so no service schedule. You only change anything, such as a tensioner and chain when you hear noise.
