2002 Buick LeSabre Question: timing chain

Should I have the timing chain replaced before it goes and if so what would it cost? I have 98000 miles on my car. Thanks -
Answer 1
Who said you need to have the timing chain replaced. You have a V6 -3800, And it should last a couple hundred thousand miles or more. That is if it is still running. Also, if you were driving it and your engine quit running on account of the timming gear. Get ready for another. But these motors don't usually do that. -

At what mileage should the timing chain/belt have to be replaced and what is the usual cost?
is it smart to change the water pump at this time and will i save money doing it now?
