The timing chain is not normally a part that needs replacing. As far as time replacing it that really depends more on your experience level and if you have all the correct tools. If you do I would recommend using a Haynes or similar manual.

Overhead Cam motors, like the Chrysler 4.7 & 2.7 and the Ford 4.6 are notorious for needing timing chains. Overhead cam motors like these motors need to be avoided. It's cheaper to replace them than repair them. If you happen to have one......believe me when I tell you...........change the oil every 3000 or run amsoils best oils if you like synthetic. People who think a timing chain doesn't need replacing only know about overhead valve motors. They don't understand overhead cam motors.
