It's a timing chain not a belt..... BUT, there's a serpentine belt, change it at 75,000 , not a big expense at all..


Yes there is a timing chain, and tensioners that would wear. There are ways to check to see if it needs servicing. Markw1952 mentions the serpentine belt that drives the alternator, water pump, power steering, & AC.
